Bringing Your Vision to Life—the Process

The necessary first step in defining any project is the initial design consultation. I start by learning more about you. More than just an introduction, this face-to-face time together will enable us to review your needs and design a personalized plan that is tailored specifically for you.

During our preliminary meeting, we will also discuss how best to implement your interior design plan, so you can decide how much time you can and want to devote to the process, which can be just as important as the finished product.

In the course of the Design Process, there are several options in which you can choose to be involved as a client:

Consultation Only

Maybe you know exactly what you want, but you need some guidance in achieving the overall plan. We meet together for a consultation where I listen carefully to your design objectives, comprehend the scope of your project and understand your style and tastes. During our discussion, I offer up ideas, insights and resources that help you complete the project independently without a professional designer overseeing the project.

Partnership to Completion

We work as partners throughout the entire process from concept to completion. It allows me to take full advantage of getting to know you in determining your lifestyle, preferences in style and the direction you would like to take, creating a finished project that is both beautiful and functional. Together, we will go to trade showrooms to review fabrics and furniture, as well as other establishments to complete your project. This could include visiting kitchen and bath showrooms, tile and flooring companies, as well lighting galleries. Upon showing you design options, we’ll work together on any revisions based on your input until the project is completed.

Presentation Only

Maybe you don’t enjoy the design process, or you don’t have the time to be involved with the details. After the initial consultation, I will narrow down the selections and bring a proposal for you to review. At this time, we will go over furniture selections, material options and other finishing touches necessary to complete your project. I will continue to bring your revisions until the final choices have been made and until the project is completed.
