1. Design Consultation
Every potential design project starts with a consultation. This helps identify the services that best match your needs. You may benefit from a single design consultation, or you may choose to have us guide your project through the entire design process! At the initial consultation we will discuss the scope of work, clients’ ideas, personal preferences and needs, style and colour, and how you intend to use the space. We will review your current interiors and discuss what changes and additions you are considering. It is important to discuss budget and timelines at this initial consultation. Once we make the decision to work together in order to move to the next step of preparing the design plan, it is important to review and sign the letter of agreement.
2. Design Plans & Elevations
Now that we have gathered all of the necessary information, required measurements and photos, we can move forward with constructing a creative design plan. Carefully considered space planning is critical to a well-designed space. Once these floor plans and necessary elevations are approved we can move onto the design concept phase.
3. Design Concept
During this stage of the project all of the all of the fabrics, materials, furniture, countertops, flooring, lighting, window treatments and accessories are sourced. This is when we put the personality on the project. This planning stage is critical to the outcome of the project. Once all of these materials have been approved we can start implementing our ideas!
4. Construction Phase
At this stage the project swings into high gear. Contractors, trades and suppliers move onto the job site. Clients begin to see progress as the plans spring into reality. We will manage the scheduling and oversee the work to make sure the design plan is executed properly and with the highest quality workmanship. During this phase we will also be ordering materials and furniture which has been approved for the project.
5. Furniture & Finishes Installation Phase
During the installation period our key role is to facilitate the efficient progression of the job. We will perform regular site visits, obtain daily updates from contractor and trades, receive and track orders, arrange for cleaning service, and most importantly keep our clients fully informed of the projects progression.
6. Deficiencies Walk-through
Deficiencies are to be expected in every project. We will walk through each room with you and make a list of the deficiencies. We are committed to resolve all deficiencies that fall short of our clients’ and our own high expectations. Deficiencies will be handled as quickly as possible. Once every item on the deficiency list is resolved, a final follow-up will take place to insure client satisfaction.
Finally the completion of the Project! Time to sit back, settle in, and enjoy your newly decorated home!
