FOR RESIDENTAIL AND COMMERCIAL SPACES
OUR DESIGN COLLABORATION HAPPENS IN FOUR PHASES.
UNFOLD YOUR VISION
INDULGING THE WHO, WHAT, WHY, WHEN, & WHERE.
From the beginning we know that you have a dream vision of what you really really want, need, wish for. But it’s not always so easy to express. Sometimes it’s easier to describe what you don’t like vs what you do, sometimes there is more than one voice involved and it doesn’t seem like a happy middle ground is possible. Other times, the vision can’t be described with mere words because it’s a feeling you want to experience. We understand that. In our process, we lead you through a curated line of questioning that reveals all the essential layers required to develope the direction for your project – including timeline, scope and budget.
SKETCH THE VISION
DESIGNING, DEVELOPING, AND CONNECTING YOUR INTERIOR WORLD TO THE EXTERIOR WORLD OUTSIDE YOUR DOORS.
Think inspirational reference points: what movie backdrops, fashion icons, songs or locations, colors reverberate with you, describing your ideal space? In this discovery process, the design concept is developed. We create floor plans and elevations presenting finishes and materials illustrating the vision created in collaboration with you – our client and muse. The final results are presented to you for approval before moving on to implementing and realizing the vision.
CRAFT THE VISION
PROCUREMENT AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT IS THE DETAILED SERVICE WE PROVIDE TO ENSURE THE HIGHEST STANDARD OF EXCELLENCE IN EXECUTING DESIGN INTENT, BUDGET MANAGEMENT, AND PRODUCTION OVERSIGHT ASSURING YOU OF A BEAUTIFULLY REALIZED END RESULT.
This is the deep dive of bringing the vision to life. It’s selecting, directing and overseeing the artists, craftspeople, workrooms, contractors and application of materials that will make your environment sing. After 20+ years in the industry, these are the thoroughly vetted, hand-picked partners we collaborate with to ensure our standards are met. This phase involves the procurement of specified FF&E (furniture, fabrics, and equipment) including purchasing, production, continuous oversight of the overall project and regular reports to keep you informed. This is the hardest phase of the project where you can feel in the dark about what is happening and when is this going to be done?! So our team works closely with everyone involved, and communicates regularly with you, throughout the process, to ensure a successful result that is beyond your dreams.
VISION MEETS REALITY
BEGINNING AND FINISHING THE TRANSFORMATION – THE BIG REVEAL!
Before installing the furnishings we do a walk through with our trades to ensure impeccable quality is delivered. Adjustments, corrections or touch-ups are addressed. Once we know it’s ready, white glove installation of the entire interior decor is conducted and we reveal the final dream vision. We walk you through the full project and follow up after a few days to learn of any items or areas that need our attention and promptly address them to ensure your satisfaction.
