Another raving fan…

Karen has great taste, of course, and most important has an instinctual feeling for the taste and desires of her clients. She knew exactly what look I wanted for my kitchen and combined that design concept with total functionality. And she was fun and easy to work with. A great experience!

Our Process

1. Initial Scope of Work (Needs) and Budget

Like any project the first step begins with determining your project needs and a budget. With a remodeling project, we suggest that you add an additional 20% more to your budget for unexpected issues that could arise during construction. During this phase we also recommend you make a list of all your needs and desires so we can help you create the home of your dreams.

2. Interior Design Concept/Master Plan

During the initial consultation we walk through your interior to make recommendations for the best function, flow. and aesthetics of your interior based on your requirements. We also help you uncover your vision, unique design style, and a color scheme to create a cohesive look with your architecture, while providing a written master plan.

3Provide Resources/Finalize Budget

Next our highly vetted team of experts provide project estimates based on our master plan and they may include contractors, sub-contractors, architects, upholstery/pillow/drapery work rooms, wholesale showrooms (furniture/flooring/rugs, window/wall coverings, etc.) and/or custom cabinet makers to complete your interior design project. We can also provide assistance as an interior design firm with selecting the best resources for the investment whether a contractor or a product.

4. Design Concept Finalization

During this phase we finalize the conceptual interior design and can manage projects to ensure materials chosen, coordinate beautifully together with your home, are in budget, and on time, while managing all the complexities of the project. We can also space plan your room(s), and specify cabinetry, tile, flooring, appliances, plumbing, furniture, lighting, window/wall coverings, and/or other finishes needed to complete your project. This phase may include a lighting plan, tile layout/design, door/window/wall locations, ceiling design, fireplace design, and more.

5. Create a Schedule/Timetable

Our interior design firm helps create a viable timetable for project completion based on the needs and availability of selected resources. We also plan for minimal disruption of your life by creating a schedule that helps ensure the finishes, furnishings, custom cabinetry, and more is designed and ordered before construction begins along with ensuring you still have options for cooking or bathing, when possible.

6. Project Management/Contract

During this phase our firm will focus on the big picture and small details of your interior design project which may include providing assistance with procuring contractors/vendors, overseeing the design portion of the project, coordinating work schedules, help keeping on schedule, attending weekly construction meetings, handling change management, resolving construction issues, delays in product delivery, and replacing missing/broken products.
