Stay As Comfortable As Home, Is possible With UsSee More
This is where we get to know you and your desires — for your new space, that is. We’ll ask you a number of relevant questions, inventory your existing furnishings, photograph your space, and discuss your project budget and timeline.
Design Development is the courtship. We are so excited we can’t contain ourselves. The creative ideas are flowing and we can’t wait to share them with you. We want to call you every day, but we don’t (I promise).We develop new space plans, furniture plans, and color palettes, as well as select your new interior finishes such as paint, wall covering, flooring, ceiling and window treatments, moldings, cabinetry and countertops. This is also the phase when any custom-designed pieces or treatments would be sketched for your review. After we finish sourcing your job we meet with you to review the plans and finish selections and make any refinements needed. Then we finalize your design drawings and meet with you once more before starting the final detailing of your plans and ordering your furnishings, fixtures and equipment.
We’re engaged and we’re starting to build something new together. This phase is filled with excitement, surprises, and a few “I-Never-Knew-It-Could-Be–Like This” exclamations, sprinkled with a “Ohhh- Maybe-We Should – Re-Visit – The Budget” moment. Designers (most) live for the Construction Phase! We get to see our ideas come to life and that smile on your face. We stop by the job site frequently to oversee the sub-contractors and ensure work is progressing on schedule and as planned. We meet with you weekly to address any of your concerns. Following construction, we coordinate the delivery and installation of your new furnishings, accessories and artwork.
Upon completion of the construction work, final quality assurance inspections are made prior to commissioning and handover to the client. Then an overall turning over of the whole project is arranged with the client, including all facets of guarantees, warranties, maintenance, and contact person involved in the whole project.
