steps to a beautiful space

our design process

contact us

It all starts with a phone call or email. Just let us know that you have a project in mind and would like to know more. We’ll invite you to share more about your project, then email you a copy of our contract so you can learn more about our design process and fees. Together we’ll decide if we’re a good fit and, if so, we’ll give you access to our detailed questionnaire. Once we review your responses, we’ll set up an initial consultation to begin.

INITIAL CONSULTATION

During the consultation, we’ll: 

  • Confirm your wants, needs, and the design direction for the space. 

  • Agree on a budget and timeline. We use a custom spreadsheet to help you easily and quickly determine how much the material portion of the project will cost to achieve the desired results.  

  • We’ll take detailed measurements of the space and photos to document the before.  

  • After signing an agreement on the scope of the project, expected timeline and the material budget, we’re ready to start designing your dream space.

This is where all the magic happens behind the scenes. We’ll work tirelessly to curate a space for you that seamlessly ties together your desires with a well-balanced beautiful, and functional space. We’ll work to design an optimal floor plan, complete with 3D renderings of your space. You may choose to stop here and do the rest on your own. To move forward a contract will be signed to continue and acknowledge the client’s responsibility of payment for selection of finishes and/or project management.

The plans have been drawn according to your desires, needs and budget considerations. Now it’s time to select flooring, countertops, fixtures, furniture, cabinetry, window coverings, accessories and any finishing touches to create a space specifically designed for you. We may select just the hard finishes or take your project to completion with both hard and soft finish selections.

It’s time to make your dream space a reality, and we’ll manage your project from top to tail. This final step is where all the physical work is done—always in a timely manner—to create a space you will LOVE! We work side by side with the trades to ensure the space we designed is the space that’s created. 

Now… it’s time to go and enjoy your beautiful, functional new space!
