E-Design Process for Residential & Commercial
Step 1: This is the beginning of the process. Whether it's a new build or existing property, it starts with the consultation. If you are in town, I will do an in-home consultation where we will review your questionnaire profile to begin to formulate your design ambition. Next, I will take pictures and measurements to start the creative process of bringing your style to life. It's all about you so the inspiration for this room was Art Deco Realness. Don't worry, if you need some help in the styling department, I will guide you to the right decisions for you and your lifestyle. I will be there every step of the way before, during, and after to make sure it's perfect. Even if you live out of town, we can do this process remotely. You will just need to send me some clear pictures of the room(s) you want to address, as well as accurate measurements for proper furniture selections.
Step 2: This is your design concept board(s) used as a visual aid to give you a clear picture of the end result, no surprises or guesswork. Because this is a digital board, we can play around with the pieces to make any changes necessary to give you the perfect look. When I am shopping for you I usually have 3 or more different options for you to choose from for each piece. So, if you don't like a lamp I propose, I can change it in the blink of an eye and replace it on the board. There is a whole lot of brainstorming and planning that goes into sourcing the perfect home furnishings for you. This isn't like what you see on TV where even so-called reality programming is extremely edited. Designing a room or whole house can be a challenging experience BUT, in the end, the reward far exceeds any nervous or unpleasant feelings that may arise from the process. I promise you with a little hard work, and getting outside your comfort zone, you will have the satisfaction of helping to create your new space.
Step 3: Once we have decided on the final design, you will now have the power to begin shopping! This list is organized by room and, within each room folder, houses your furnishings by category. It gives you a running total for the whole project, each room, and each category. This list, too, has all the product info including retail price and any current sale being offered, and direct links to product pages to make your purchases. You will also find, under the notes tab, installation instructions for proper placement. You now have everything you need to install your room confidently. By removing myself from the project management side, you now are in control of the buying process. This means you will be able to take advantage of all the good deals retail has to offer these days. Now, with these savings going towards your budget, you have the choice of investing further in the room or putting the savings back into the bank for a rainy day. With a little patience and savvy shopping, paying full price is becoming a thing of the past. So take your time and enjoy the process, but don't wait too long as you could lose your momentum and not complete your project as desired.
Step 4: As your furnishings start to come in, place them where they are intended. With all the tools I have given you, you will be successful in completing your install and revealing the transformation that has taken place. Remember what I said earlier, I will be there every step of the way and I am only a text, email, or phone call away to provide support and encouragement.
