Initial Meeting and Consultation: A one to two hour meeting where all scopes of the project will be discussed, a walk thru is completed and ideas begin to come alive. We will come to your home and meet with you and begin to evaluate your space. A lot of measuring will take place as well as photos of the space. This is the best time to provide me with your hopes, your magazine cuttings, your ideas, and details into your lifestyle and how the space will be used.
Design Scheme and Proposal: The follow up meeting where we will start to look through my planned design scheme, evaluating colors we have chosen, fabrics, furniture, etc. If your project involves drawings or boards, they will be presented at this time.
Letter of Agreement, the Scope of Project and fee schedule will be discussed at this time.
Implementation: This is where the fun begins! We will start applying paint samples, reviewing all choices in regards to wallpaper, furniture, accessories, etc. and making decisions. Once we have agreed we will begin to order hard goods and begin to schedule trades people to begin the project!
Installation and Delivery: While every project is different, generally we will begin the walls in the home and work in, whether that be paint or wallpaper application, then flooring, followed by furniture delivery and placement and last accessorizing.
Please be aware that in ordering furniture to completion and delivery can take up to 12 weeks.
