WHAT WE DO?

FULL SERVICE INTERIOR DESIGN
The full-service interior design is for clients who want a personal and sophisticated, hotel-worthy retreat at home without the headache of managing a renovation. The interior design process can seem a little mysterious if you haven't worked with a designer before so here are the steps:
To kick off your Design Consultation we will walk-through your home and talk about the improvements you're dreaming of for each space. We will also discuss budget, explore ideas and options that fit your lifestyle and lay the foundation for your upcoming project.
Once the scope of work is decided, we create a customized Letter of Agreement for your project. Once this document is signed and the fee for the Design Plan is received - we begin working on your project.
At the beginning of the Design Plan, we’ll meet again to discuss your project in depth. If construction is involved, we’ll meet with trades and contractors to firm up on the possibilities. We’ll create floorplans, elevation drawings, millwork, and lighting plans. We’ll source finishes, fixtures, and furnishings for your home and present you with the new vision during the Presentation.
Upon completion of the Design Plan, we’ll present you with the reimagined space illustrated with drawings, sketches, moodboards, fabric swatches, and finish samples. Expect two design presentations. Concept Design Presentation where we will agree the floor plans and aesthetic direction. After this is signed off the Detailed Design Presentation will follow - where all final items are presented, technical drawings and of course final budgets. Large projects may require more presentations. If there are components that need tweaking or revision, we encourage you to give all feedback at one once so we can work as efficiently as possible.
As finishes, fixtures, funriture and custom items are approved, we’ll begin the ordering process and manage these moving parts. We work hand in hand with the contractor to ensure smooth execution of the Design Plans. We’ll take the stress out of the process, handle decisions, deal with potential problems allowing you to focus on enjoying life.
The Finishing Touches
After construction is completed and fixtures are installed, we'll have the furniture installation day where our team of white glove installers will unbox everything, build and place all furniture in positions. We'll also source and bring accessories, artwork and finishing touches to your home to complete the transformation for the reveal moment! We’ll ask you to allow us a day to photograph your home for our portfolio.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is there a minimum budget you require?
Yes, clients must have a minimum furnishing budget of $25,000 (not including design fees).
Can I incorporate
my existing furniture?
The best results are really when the design process is from top to bottom. However I like the projects I design for my clients to have character and speak to them, so if you have a certain piece/pieces that you love, I am more than happy to incorporate it.
I don't meet the minimum budget but I still need help
