MY INTERIOR DESIGN PROCESS:
I begin by learning about you. Everything you like from colors to flowers to food to furniture styles, fashion designers, hobbies, activities, art, travel, home life, and so on. All of this is relevant to how I create a design plan customized to you, your family, and your daily lifestyle. I will meet (or zoom) with you to listen and talk about your own vision, how you use and might want to change your living space, and gather any ideas you want me to consider as we begin the design process.
From there, I execute. Depending on the project scope, this may include site measuring, reviewing architectural plans, drafting rough layouts, planning preliminary color schemes, site meetings with contractors and tradespeople if required, envisioning your ideas into a comprehensive design concept, and preparing budgets and schedules.
Then, I move on to what many consider the fun part… the more visual part of the process really kicks off! You're now seeing fabrics, carpets, wall coverings, furniture recommendations, and how it will all come together in a beautiful palette and functioning space. You are learning why I make certain recommendations and now seeing and participating in the vision.
Next, orders are generated. Items start shipping to you or to a local receiving warehouse. Through it all, I am meeting and walking you through different steps, getting your approval, and allowing you to see it all coming together. I am answering your questions, providing delivery estimates and, in most cases, project managing on your behalf so that General Contractors, tradespeople, and suppliers are all coordinated smoothly.
Finally, I partner with you to select artwork and accessories to bring a harmonious finishing touch to the space that ties everything together. You now celebrate the beginning of many years of enjoyment in a newly designed room, home, or office. And I get to celebrate excitement to having helped a client create a space that reflects their lifestyle.
I find it best to propose fee structures following an initial consultation since projects may vary in scope and budget. Typically, after our first meeting or discussion, I will submit a proposal that will include some combination of the following:
Design concept fee and retainer. Generally, a flat fee or per room fee that covers site survey measuring and documenting, rough layouts and drawings, preliminary color schemes, and development of the design.
Selection of furniture and finishes. An hourly or hourly plus percentage for researching and identifying furniture, finishes and fixtures, placing and managing orders.
Construction oversight. Typically, an hourly fee for project management, site visits, supervising tradespeople or construction teams.
I appreciate that interior design and space planning is personal and driven by many factors including time and budget. Every project is different and I will work closely with you to develop a fee structure based on your individual project.
