Full Service Design

The full-service design, whether whole house, or individual spaces, will be catered specifically to your needs, with one main goal: to help you complete a well thought-out space that has been attended to from top to bottom, with help from us from start to finish.

One of the most exciting part of the design process is getting to know our clients and we take pride in being able to truly understand varying personal aesthetics. We will work to make sure every decision and every detail, from rugs to furniture to accessories, is a reflection of you.

Process/Timeline:

  1. Fill out the HIRE US form.

  2. We contact you to discuss details and schedule a meet + greet in your home.

  3. Once we understand the full scope of the project, we send you a proposal and contract.

  4. To initiate the project, return the signed contract and retainer fee, then we will kick off with the Survey and Programming meeting where we will discuss lifestyle, productivity needs, and design goals. We will also measure and photograph your space, and assist with building an acheivable budget.

  5. We will begin the Design Process. This is where the magic happens!

  6. We meet to present our design concepts, which includes any of the following to help you visualize the design intentions: drawings, sketches, floor plans, mood boards and textile, wallpaper, furniture swatches.

  7. Once you approve the final design, we will begin implementing your project by ordering all specifications, managing and installing your project.

PRICING:

Full-Service design is billed at an hourly rate of $120/hour. A project estimate is provided after the initial meet+greet so that design fees fully reflect the scope of your project, and so there are no surprises at the end of the process.  We bill after each Phase has been completed.
