Getting to Know You

This phase is like a first date, but without the butterflies! To create an atmosphere that represents you and your lifestyle needs, we will get to know you and explore your tastes: learning what you like, what inspires you, what you would like to achieve, and how each room will function.

Discussing your budget and timeline help to clarify the scope of work and direction of the design that will define a space that is truly you.

During this process, we are collaborating ideas of design with you, your architect and builder in an integrative team fashion
before beginning the next phase.


Design Development

Design Development is how we transform our vision for your project into a unique design plan that speaks to your style and taste.  Based on the project requirements and your needs- architectural details, furniture layouts, and color palettes are developed. This may include any variety of hard and soft goods selections as paint, wallcoverings, flooring, ceiling and window treatments, moldings, cabinetry and countertops, custom built-ins, fabrics and finishes, furniture, lighting, and other relevant design elements being applied to the project.

After sourcing your project, a formal presentation of plans and finish selections will be revealed to you for your review. As where appropriate, additional materials to support our designs such as materials, sketches, and 3D renderings, may be presented.

If any refinements are needed, we will then finalize your design and drawings before starting the next phase.


Project Management

Building something new together and seeing our designs and your style come to life is an exciting process.

Once your desired design objectives and functions during the previous phases are achieved, specifications and schedules are assembled to provide clear instructions to your architect and builder. An integrated team approach is critical for a successful project! To accomplish this, we will visit the job site frequently to oversee that the design and construction efforts of involved parties are progressing as planned and on schedule. Clients can rest assured that status and progress reports will be relayed consistently. We strive to exude excellence in our performance that produces quality results through each phase until completion of your project.

Following construction, we coordinate the delivery and installation of your new furnishings, accessories and artwork. The last details and finishing touches are the jewels that finalize the expression of your personal style and complete your story.
