Our Design Process

Step 1: Getting Into Your Head


The initial meeting with the client is really about initiating a relationship, as we are about to embark on a creative and collaborative journey together! Based on this philosophy we're delighted to report, that many of our clients become lifelong friends.

We start by listening to what each client is trying to achieve to determine the scope of the job and set a design direction. Our role is to bring your dream to life with a sense of aesthetics that meshes with yours. In order to achieve this vision, our initial meeting will include the following topics:

  • Style desired

  • Time frame

  • Budget

  • Review client's magazine clippings

  • Review with client existing plans and the functions of each room

  • Review sample set of our drawings

  • Previous experience with an interior designer vs. decorator


If your project includes construction:

  • We can introduce/recommend other professionals

  • New construction or areas to be renovated

  • Scope of the project

  • Copy of existing plans

  • Materials to be used

  • Budget

Step 2: Presentation of Ideas


We will compose a complete design presentation of furniture and fabrics with the following (allow a minimum of 2 months for our preparation):

  • Furniture plans. There will be more than one option for the client to review.

  • The furniture will be presented on picture pages with dimensions, pricing and availability.

  • Elevations of particular walls as appropriate to help the client envision the room.

Step 3: Procurement


We will compose a proposal for each piece that is approved at the presentation. The proposal will list a full description of each individual piece with dimensions, delivery time, pricing, picture, sketch and/or fabric attached.


The proposal will require a signature of approval and the required deposit prior to the order being placed with the vendor.

Step 4: Project Tracking


All orders will be tracked and a status report sent to the client monthly so the client knows status of orders at all times.

We oversee all vendors and all shipments and track each step against our master schedule.

We inspect for 100% accuracy of the order - colors, fabrics, wood tones, style numbers - - and inspect thoroughly for any sign of damage.


Our mission is that the client never has to be concerned with any aspect of the job logistics and item delivery.

Step 5: Installation


We take command on every aspect of installation, making certain that the client is in no way burdened by the multiple components and vendors that may be part of the install.


We choreograph the timing of each vendor - painters, carpet installers, wall finishing, window treatments, furniture delivery, picture hanging, etc. to make certain that the most efficient progression of functions is followed, with the least disturbance to the client's daily lifestyle.


We perform the installation with the owner present, as we manage every last detail.

Step 6: Construction Administration (If Required)


  • Floor Plans - Project Architect to send us the CAD (Computer Aided Design) plans. If an architect is not on the job we will do the site field measuring to create CAD plans for accuracy.

  • Review Plans - We can work with your project professionals to make sure our interior design plans are accurate and perfectly suited for your project/home/etc.

  • Elevations - We will execute elevations for all millwork, cabinetry, stone/tile layouts.

  • Selections, Specifications and Schedules for the Following - Lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures, electrical switches and outlets, paint, stone, tile, appliances, interior and exterior doors, railing and stair designs, millwork and molding, cabinetry and door hardware.

  • Audio/Visual Consultation - Consultation with Audio/Visual company regarding specifications and placement.

  • Construction Book - a construction book will be created for the client, designer and all contractors bidding on the project. The book will be comprised of pictures and specs of each product. The items will be indexed by categories.

  • Construction Invoice Review - We will review contractor's invoices and advise the client of payment draws.

  • Time Lines - We will assist the client with a time line and estimated completion date of the construction. However, it is the responsibility of the general contractor to meet the specified deadlines.

  • Site Supervision and Project Meetings - We will meet with all the key players on the construction site pertaining to project specifications. Site visits could be as frequent as once a week depending on the stage of the project. If the client is out of town we will send photos of the construction progress.

  • Minutes and Job Status - We will distribute both the client and the contractor as the project schedule dictates.

  • Submittals - We will review manufacturer's and/or contractor's submittals such as shop drawings, product data and samples to determine conformance with the design concept and specifications set forth in the design documents.

  • Punch List - We will compose a concise punch list and follow through until each item is completed.
