 | WE GET TO KNOW YOU |

After you book a Discovery Phone Call with us, we'll chat with you to determine whether we should work together on your project. At this time, we will ask you about your project, deadline, and budget.

We want to ensure that we are establishing the right expectations for you and your project from the very beginning, and we won't hesitate to make other suggestions if we feel any aspect of your project isn't aligned with our mission. We want you to love your home and to enjoy the design process. Our Discovery Call ensures that this will happen.

| SITE VISIT & MEASURE |

We’ll meet with you at your home, place of business, etc., for an initial consultation. At this meeting, we will look at the space(s) to be designed, the pieces to be included in the design, review design needs and style, go over any available architectural drawings, and finalize the budget.

Immediately after the meeting, we will send you a Service Agreement outlining the scope of work, our design fees, and other pertinent terms and details pertaining to your project. Once you’ve approved the Service Agreement, we will go to your home or business to take measurements and photos of the room(s) to be designed.

If your project is a full renovation or new build, we will have a separate meeting with the architectural team, general contractor and/or builder.


| DESIGN PLAN & IMPLEMENTATION |


We will create a design plan based on what we have learned from you, as well as our own creative ideas. This typically takes 6 weeks from the initial visit, although it may take longer depending on the size of the project. We will then present our design to all decision-makers.

Depending on the scope of the project, we will provide you with photos, floor plans, renderings, elevations, fabric and paint samples, and/or samples of other materials we recommend, as well as a detailed proposal with pricing for each item or service.

This phase may consist of a series of presentations as we move from concept to final design. 


| IMPLEMENTATION |

Once you’ve approved the final design and proposal, furnishings and materials are ordered, and all work is scheduled. From now until the construction is complete and/or the furnishings are delivered, you will be waiting awhile (from a few weeks to a few months, depending on the project) to see the final transformation. Please know that we are working diligently behind the scenes, following up on all orders and ensuring delivery of all fixtures to the job site, as well as communicating with you, your builder, and architect to answer any questions.

| INSTALLATION & ACCESSORIES |


Once all items are in and have been fully inspected, we will schedule white glove delivery of all furniture and large accessories and rugs, as well as professional window treatment installation.

| STAGING & PHOTOGRAPHY |

We would love to include your project in our design portfolio. With your written permission, we will stage your newly redesigned spaces and bring in our professional photographer. The resulting images will be using on our website and social media platforms.

You can decline to have your space photographed as part of our contract. If you agree to the images, you will be anonymous and your address will not be disclosed for any reason.
