Full-Service Interior Design Process
All designs, no matter the scope, start with a consultation. The process described below applies to projects that we manage from start to finish.
1. Initial Consultation
After having a conversation by phone or via e-mail we schedule a date and time to meet with you onsite. We walk the space and more accurately define the scope of work. The more information I have from the beginning the more accurate of a quote I can provide for interior design services. From there, I will develop a design proposal and contract that will be sent to you for review.
2. Schematic Design
First, I survey the space to take any dimensions and notes I may need to create a digital base to work from. I develop a preliminary design - this includes a space plan and any sketches, images, renderings or samples to convey the design concept including preliminary finish and furniture selection. The goal of this phase is to explore the most promising design solutions and alternatives. I meet with the client at the end of this phase to review.
3. Design Development
During design development, I create plan, elevation, section and detail drawings to a high level of finish. I also make any revisions per notes from the schematic design review. I refine colors and finishes, make final selections of any furniture, fixtures and equipment. A cost estimate is developed for these items. I also get a cost estimate from the contractor(s). The resulting design and estimates are presented to the client for review and final approval.
4. Construction Documents
I complete the digital documentation package to present for any required permits. These will be stamped by the necessary licensed professionals.
