Full-service interior design consists of three major phases:
Our full-service approach enables us to manage projects from initial concept through to completion, designing your home down to the final detail. It is our job to take care of the major and minute design details that turn a house into a home.
We develop a design direction through a lifestyle questionnaire and a style discovery process. Then we create inspiration board(s) to communicate what we envision for the project, and establish the overall vibe and direction from which to build from.
After the concept & style direction is agreed upon, we then build the project from there. We develop floor plans, furniture layouts, interior detail designs, finish and fixture selections, furnishing and decor selections, and establish a preliminary investment. We review this phase and revise accordingly until everything is agreed upon. During this time, we work with other trade vendors gathering estimates and working through all the details in your project.
This phase is typically the longest, and also the phase where you may feel as though nothing is happening. Rest assured though it is, behind the scenes. This is probably the most critical phase for ensuring things run smoothly from ordering the right fabric for your sofa, to making sure construction is moving along according to plan. Here are some of the typical things taking place at this point:
Placing orders & assessing delivery times
Complete the purchasing of goods on your behalf
Clarify and communicate estimated delivery times
Manage open orders by efficiently tracking goods
·Prepare the construction & installation timeline
Oversee the construction and installation timeline
Coordinate project logistics with contractors and vendors
Provide site checks for project accuracy
Coordinate deliveries and installations
On site presence during deliveries and installations, where applicable
Furniture Installation and Styling
Provide turnkey furniture installation, which means that all of the furnishings are delivered at one time, once any construction is complete
Plan and execute the styling process
Style and photograph the completed project, where applicable
Provide documentation that supports the care and maintenance of your newly completed project
Identify any deficiencies that we’ve noted during installation in the format of a project punch list
Identify & Resolve Deficiencies
Identify and resolve all deficiencies identified on the project punch list
The Conceptual & Style Phase typically takes approximately four to six weeks and the Design Development Phase takes approximately six to ten weeks. The Implementation Phase is time dependent on scope of work, lead time of vendors, and the contractor’s schedule. Please note, as of 2022, many vendors are experiencing shortages on materials and labor, which in turn has greatly extended lead times.
As every project is different, Bridget will meet with you and assess the scope of work, then determine the design fee accordingly. Full-service interior design is a flat design fee per project. The very first step in any new project is a Discovery Call to determine if there’s a fit. Next, we would set up a Design Consultation, which is a 2 hour meeting in your home to discuss the project in great detail. The fee for a consultation is $550, which is paid in advance, which reserves your spot on our calendar.
All purchasing and execution goes through us. Your purchase of interior design items (i.e. furniture, fixtures, fabrics and other design materials) through us will serve as payment for our services during the Implementation Phase. When you purchase your furniture through us, you never pay full MSRP. You are presented the full investment breakdown for every piece of furniture we are purchasing for you. This way you have a very good understanding of what you are paying for every item. Any adjustments that you request are presented to you for approval. Nothing is ordered until you approve and sign off for each item. Full payment is required upfront, as we cannot begin the procurement of furnishings until payment is received.
We require 100% deposit on all orders for many reasons.
Once a custom order is placed, it is non-refundable. If we’re ordering custom sofa just for you and then you decide you don’t want it, we certainly aren’t going to want it either.
We do understand that tough times come up in peoples lives and cause a client to lose focus and pull away from the project. Once the custom orders are already set into motion, they cannot be paused or cancelled, which means production will conclude and balances will be due. We’re a design firm, and cannot front money for purchases on behalf of our clients.
Those examples aside, there are many benefits to paying 100% up front:
· It cuts paperwork in half (instead of billing for a deposit and final invoice).
· Since we do turn-key project installations (where we do one delivery after all of the orders are in at our local receiver’s warehouse), you would still be required to pay for items in full prior to receiving them.
· Projects move more quickly this way, as it makes the entire order process more efficient and allows us to complete your project quicker.
We do have a design style that is bold, elegant, and sophisticated, but we are also flexible and able to produce the right design for our clients specific style. We love to help our clients uncover their own unique design style and what truly makes their life special. We then create the perfect environment to compliment that uniqueness. We nod towards the pushing of the envelope, working outside the boundaries and opening a world of what is possible with each client and their project.
Yes! You don’t have to do a full room project if you are just looking for window treatments or custom soft furnishings like drapery, bedding and pillows. We are happy to meet with you in your home, take measurements and design the perfect soft furnishings for you. We have our custom workroom which offers endless possibilities to create the perfect products you need. We do require a design fee to do this work which is payable in full upfront. We do however waive this fee if you move forward with purchasing product through us. Please reach out to us to discuss any work of this nature you have for your home.
