During the consultation, we cover the scope of the project in detail. We also discuss, budget, style preferences, and timeline. Further, we delve into the long term and short term goals for your home, your values, and your lifestyle so we can formulate and execute a design plan that suits you and your family's needs.
initial design consultation
Based on our initial consultation, we provide you with a design estimate outlining our estimated hours, fee structure, some policies, etc. Our goal is to set a foundation that is comfortable and realistic, ensuring that we're on the same page moving forward. Upon approval of the design estimate, we require a retainer fee which will be credited against any outstanding invoices.
proposal and contract
This is where the fun part begins! We start working on the conceptual design based on the floor plan and your style preferences. We start with developing a color scheme, sourcing of furniture, lighting, and materials. This is the phase where paint colours and wallpapers for walls are selected, window treatments are designed, fabrics, hardware, and furnishings are chosen. Drawings, samples, and pictures are gathered. Quotes and pricing are researched. In sum, this is where all design decisions are carefully sourced, examined and considered. During this phase, there will be continuing correspondence and/or meetings to ensure that we're on track.
After decisions are made we start executing the design plan. Throughout the design process, we manage the project with responsiveness and attentiveness. Our team ensures that deliveries are seamless, trades work is satisfactory, furniture purchased, schedule is on track and no detail is overlooked. Throughout this phase, we will be available to ensure that any outstanding items are addressed and that the design plan is being executed correctly.
All work by trades has been completed, the furniture has been delivered, accessories placed and art hung. This usually occurs on one day so we can present you with a final reveal. Styling is what truly elevates your space. Days prior to installation, we source accessories such as art, lamps, throws, vases, etc. On installation day, they will be placed throughout your space. You'll have a day or two to decide which pieces you would like to keep. At the end of the project, we will walk through the space together, and compile a list of any outstanding items or tasks. We will arrange to have all of these items taken care of quickly and efficiently.
Now that all the hard work is done you can sit back, relax, and bask in your newly designed home.
