Our process always starts with getting to know you first - we want to know how you want the space to feel and function, as well as your vision for what we will achieve together. During these big-picture conversations as well as through our design questionnaire, we'll dive deeper into your design tastes, our process and fees. We also want to learn about all your dreams for the project, current inspiration or what's on your wish list! During this Discovery phase we will familiarize ourselves with your project site, taking detailed photographs and videos, as well as inventory any furniture, art, and decorative items that are to be integrated into the new design.
2 - 3 MONTHS
- Discovery Conversation
- Aesthetic Development
- Outline Anticipated Project Schedule
- Trade Day For Potential Vendors
Once we have absorbed and documented every detail from our Discovery phase into our brains, customer portal and various software programs, the fun begins! Now it's time to create a design plan based on what we have learned from you, as well as our own creative ideas. We will prepare Aesthetic Concepts to illustrate our recommended design direction, including preliminary selections for FF&E (Furnishings, Fixtures, Equipment), and photographic and illustrative examples. In tandem with our concept and material boards, we will develop preliminary furniture and floor plans indicating placement of furniture recommended.
