Our 5 step design process.
Find pictures and samples of what you like (no matter how outrageous). Include fabric samples, magazine pictures, paint colours or any other material that inspires you. Collect and save these in one file so it’s always handy.
Our first appointment is very important as this will allow us to meet you and see what you need, want, like or dislike. Face to face is important to determine who you are and how you live. We will tour your house and review your file of design ideas.
This is critical as the amount you wish to spend will determine how big the project becomes. Budget is determined by how much renovation work is required and how much furniture and accessories are needed.
You can choose whether you want to have us as design consultants only where we provide you suggestions on colour and material options and offer a list of places to shop. This is for those who like to ‘do it themselves’. Alternatively, you can choose to have us do everything for you with your guidance. Or choose to have us do a few items and you handle the rest. The choice is yours.
When we know what has to be done, it’s time for you to commit the time and money to finish the space to your determination. Remember, projects will take the time they require. We will do our best to speed up the process but it will all happen in fair time. It generally takes 8 weeks for furniture, drapes and materials to be installed. Custom cabinetry and fixtures can take up to 12 weeks. Accessorizing will take approximately 4 weeks.
