Interior Design Process

The Path We Follow

Each project differs by the specific interior decorating and design needs of our residential and commercial clients. You may not require all of the design phases, but there is a general procession of steps that is routinely followed. They are as follows:

For all of our interior decorating and design projects

Initial Meeting » Meeting each other to insure a comfortable fit, discussing your interior design needs and our offerings and arrangements. This is always free of charge to you.
Design Project Analysis » Discussing, in detail, your interior design and decorating goals, preferences, lifestyle needs, and budget. Focusing on Architecture and Construction
Team Meeting » Project review and role clarification with house architect and general contractor
Initial Interior Design Concepts » We will develop loose interior design concepts presented in the form of sketches, photos, and /or material samples
Space Planning » Making sure the rooms flow properly and allowing for furniture placement, traffic flow, window treatments, and visual interest.
