You’re curious, we’ve got clarity. Discover the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions here.

How does the interior design process work?

Our interior design process begins with a Discovery Call and Questionnaire. From there we meet for a detailed consultation to understand your needs, preferences, and lifestyle. We then create customized design concepts, collaborate with you to refine the vision, present drawings, and 3D renderings. Once the selections are made and design is agreed upon we proceed with the implementation phase.

What should I expect during the initial consultation?

After the Discovery Call, if we agree that your project is a great fit, we move on to the Design Strategy Session. This is an opportunity for us to get to know each other better. We'll discuss your project goals, style preferences, budget, and timeline and if time permits, we will begin to measure and document your space. It's essential for us to understand your vision fully.

Is there a cost for the initial consultation?

Although our Discovery Call is complimentary, there is a $500 investment cost for the Design Strategy Session. We treasure your time as much as we do ours, and we promise that this session will be valuable to you, even if it's a standalone experience.

What sets your interior design services apart from others?

Our approach to design centers around creating spaces that truly reflect the people and life within them. We focus on functionality, comfort, and aesthetics, aiming to make your home renovation enhance your daily life. We pride ourselves in turning clients into friends and we hope to bring our joy of design into the lives of the people we are fortunate enough to work with!

How do you determine the budget for a project?

We work closely with you to establish a realistic budget based on the scope of the project, your requirements, and the materials and finishes you desire. We use a ‘good’, ‘better’, and ‘best’ pricing model in order to provide you with the expected investment. Our goal is to provide a design that aligns with your budgetary considerations.

How much does your interior design service cost?

As each project is unique, the cost will vary based on the scope and complexity of the design. Upon completion of the Design Strategy Session and creation of a comprehensive scope of work, we will provide a flat-flee proposal that outlines the overall Style, timeline, budget and all of the ways we’ll transform your space.

Do you offer a free estimate or consultation?

Although our Discovery Call is complimentary, there is a $500 investment cost for the Design Strategy Session. We treasure your time as much as we do ours, and we promise that this session will be valuable to you, even if it's a standalone experience.

How do you handle communication with clients during the design process?

We believe in transparent and open communication with our clients. We keep you informed throughout the design process, ensuring your vision is fully realized. Our weekly project update emails will ensure you stay up-to-speed and engaged throughout the process. You can expect timely notifications about upcoming meetings, trade dates, and the current status of our work on your project. We value effective communication and keeping you well-informed every step of the way.

How do you handle unforeseen challenges during a project?

We offer fair prices on the furnishings and materials that we use, and do not compromise on quality. The intrinsic value is in the selection of the right materials and furniture for your home that will stand the test of time and create a cohesive look.

What happens if I'm not satisfied with the design proposal?

Your satisfaction is paramount to us. Because we take the necessary time to understand our clients wants and needs and provide an initial design concept to make certain we are on the right track before providing the final proposal, minimal revisions are usually required. Our design fee includes one set of revisions to ensure the final design aligns with your vision.
