I start with an initial phone call to get to know you and your project (scope, budget, etc.). Next, for local projects, I'll schedule an on-site consultation with you to learn about your lifestyle, how you want to feel in your home, your values, and your wish list. During this consultation, I freely give you ideas and sources for your project, as well as provide clarity and direction on next steps.
2. PROject proposal & CONTRACT
Good contracts keep good friends! Based on what I learn in discovery, I create a project proposal and work contract that cover the scope of work, estimated fees, timeframe, and an overview of the expectations for both parties.
After we sign the proposal and contract, I start work on the conceptual designs for your project. During this stage and going forward, time is billed hourly. If you have ideas and style inputs, I gladly incorporate those. If not, I’m more than happy to supply the creative juju. This begins with moodboards, which provide overall design direction and style—I'll present them to you for approval to make sure we're on the same page stylistically. Your feedback here helps me create something that is exactly what you were looking for—even if you didn’t know it yet!
4. DESIGN DEVELOPMENT
Once you've approved the moodboards, I create floor plans and design boards for each space to show you the possibilities, and fine-tune the direction of the project. At this point, the iteration begins towards the final selections of fixtures, finishes, furnishings, decor, and art. I get pricing for all items, and create a comprehensive budget.
5. DESIGN PRESENTATION
When all pieces of the design have come together, I present the entire space to you, and we can discuss any questions or revisions. I get your approval on all selections so there are no surprises down the line.
For Design + Styling services, this is where you take the reins! I send you a complete purchase list and you implement your new design.
If you choose to proceed with a full service package, procurement includes all purchasing, receiving, delivery, and installation. All purchases (excluding final freight charges) are billed up front, and I handle any unforeseen issues that may come up and make sure things are coming together smoothly.
7. INSTALLATION & STYLING
The most exciting step of your project includes deliveries and installation of furniture, fixtures and art. Styling is where I make final adjustments and artful touches, and it ensures that the vision for your space is fully realized.
8. PROJECT CLOSURE
I do a final walkthrough of the project to make sure everything is in place, and send you the final invoice and project documentation for your payment and records. Lastly, high-quality photos of your new space are taken to show the transformation.
After a project is completed, I'm still here for you! If there’s anything that’s not quite right, I’ll get it sorted out. I want to hear about your experiences, questions, or concerns, and you’ll receive a brief experience survey to provide feedback. Your testimonial and referrals are also greatly appreciated!
