THE WAY WE COLLABORATE
We come armed with our dedicated in-house design and project management team as well as a close-knit community of trusted vendors, fabricators and installers to make sure each project is flawless, cost-effective, efficient and fun.
To us there's nothing more personal and emotionally impactful than the environments we inhabit, so it's with that thought in mind that we approach each of our projects. We've spent years perfecting our company standard, which leads straight to designs that are anything but. Each step of the way is intended to create spaces that are specially tailored to our individual clients (no one size fits all around here) while being as environmentally, budget and time-friendly as possible. Plus, we pride ourselves in taking a concierge-style approach to design because we believe that every moment of the design experience should be satisfying for our clients. It's about creating inspiring spaces after all, so the getting there can be just as Pin-worthy!
So you’ve decided it’s high-time to invest in your interior: this is the first step. We’ll have a meeting on site to scope the space and hear all about your design dreams and desires. During this phase, we’ll collect a plethora of photos and information to create a comprehensive design fee estimate based on your project’s specific needs. Shortly after our consultation, you’ll receive a detailed estimate and summary which clearly outlines the design goals and establishes the scope of work.
Once we’ve carefully considered and agreed upon your project’s unique components like personal aesthetic, architectural style, inspiration images and specific likes and dislikes, we dive into development. We like to kick things off with vibe boards and project allowances so we can settle on a general direction and overall budget before diving into the specific design.
After establishing a general plan of action, it’s time to start narrowing down the overall vision into a cohesive, specific design. We’ll get started by space planning and developing an ideal layout for everything from interior walls (for full remodels) to accent furniture. This acts as our road map for design evolution. Next, we’ll pull together photographs of individual pieces and materials on PDFs that we refer to as styleboards to reflect the design plan. Anytime construction is involved for a kitchen or master bath, we'll also be providing 3-D renderings to help you visualize how everything works together (we of course also offer 3-D renderings à la carte). We’ll present these to you along with full furniture plans and a working budget of all proposed items.
At this point, we’ll also facilitate site surveys and collect bids from our trusty team of contractors (when construction is involved) and subcontractors. Of course, throughout your project, we’ll be handling all aspects of project management - collaborating with all tradesmen, providing all details and specifications needed to execute the design; and overseeing all installations to ensure that our high standards are met. When you’ve approved everything we’ve presented, it’s time to get to buying. We’ll turn proposals into invoices, collect payment and purchase all materials and products needed for your makeover or remodel. After the dust is cleared and packages are delivered comes the best part - installation day! We’ll bring in our team to style and set everything up just the way we imagined it, including all accessories and art.
