How we do it…
The design process can be complicated and has lots of moving parts. So we use this project management planning process to ensure that your project goes smoothly from beginning to end!
After our initial contact, we ask all prospective customers to fill out the appropriate questionnaire- found at Contact Us. This helps us to get to know you and your project better and understand your design needs before we meet.
Initial Design Consultation:
We meet at your home and discuss your design needs, style, goals, lifestyle, budget and timeline.
We create a design proposal outlining the scope of work, the estimated design fee and proposed timeline of the project.
We invite all of the trades who will be involved in the process to meet to review the project scope. Each trade submits a written estimate which we review and use to create a comprehensive plan for your project.
show and tell:
We present the preliminary design concepts for your space informed by our conversations and online design tools such as our Houzz Ideabook, Pinterest boards, etc. We review space plans, elevations and renders to show you how the new space would actually look using the selected materials. We look at proposed colorways and materials samples. And we discuss your desired revisions and go back to the drawing board one last time.
We review the final comprehensive presentation of all the approved and revised elements of the plan including the total budget detailed by line item. Now it’s go time!
We purchase all approved items, track orders, assess lead times and determine if there are an back ordered or discontinued items that may delay the project. We follow up with vendors to minimize delays and arrange for receipt and delivery of all items. All the stuff that you don’t want to do!
The day we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived! We oversee the receipt of all of your items into our warehouse and inspect each of them carefully to make sure there is no damage. We oversee the return of any damaged items and reorder. We plan the installation date(s), arrange for delivery to home and installation. Welcome to your beautiful new space!
