NEW PROCESS

PROCESS DIAGRAM WEBSITE-01.jpg

PHASE 1: PROJECT KICK OFF

All services, whether DIY (we provide ideas for you to carry out on your own timeline), or full service design (a turn-key process), begin with an Initial Consultation. This starts off with an extensive client questionnaire and discovery call. The purpose of this is to determine your project's scope, budget, design style, lifestyle needs, and time frame for the project. During the initial consultation meeting, we will review the design process so you have a better understanding of what to expect.

Step 1A:

Questionnaire & Phone Call

This process helps us determine if we are a good fit. Once you’ve answered the questionnaire and your call is completed we are ready to move forward.

Step 1B:

Initial Consultation & Intake

This is a working session where we provide you with design advice and recommendations. Although no design work is performed we will provide you with a detailed proposal tailored to you and your project.


PHASE 2: CONCEPTUAL DESIGN

The conceptual design stage is when we start to formulate the vibe or look and feel for your design project. As we work together we will will use our online studio portal that keeps your decisions, products, drawings, and documents completely organized. We move outside your cluttered email inbox into our messaging function, make payments to invoices, and track the status of each product selected. Our online studio is unlike any other interior design firms because it is user-friendly and completely centralized.

During this phase we take on-site measurements. We will have a strategy session to review the information we have gathered to make sure we are on the same page.

This process can last several weeks depending on the scope of you project.

Step 5: Presentation of estimates and furnishing/ materials; collection of deposit

We will present to you a full design presentation, complete with a digital presentation (ideal floor plan/ elevations) and samples to touch and feel, along with quotes from our trusted tradespeople. Once all products are finalized, we complete the final drawings to be used as the design plan in your project.
