Our 10 Step Process

I have worked alongside my dedicated team of formally educated architects, designers, and expert crafts and trades people to manage the interior design process from conception to white-glove final installation.

01

Initial Meeting

After a brief telephone conversation or email exchange, our initial meeting takes place in our office, which is optimized to walk you through our well-defined business process. This meeting is an important one, as it allows both parties to determine if there is a good fit.

Site Visit

You talk, we listen. This is your opportunity to walk us through your home and share your vision and your budget. We encourage you to share tear sheets or electronic mood boards with us (if you have them and feel they will help articulate your vision). Be prepared, we will take photos, lots and lots of photos, it’ll be a long visit, as we also need to measure.

We take on projects of all different shapes and sizes.  Once we establish your budget, we’ll respect it from start to finish.  We’ll make your journey as comfortable as we can!
