A Design Plan for Success

First things first, we appreciate your interest!.  We love working with clients and the very first steps in getting to know them is what we refer to as the Initial Consultation.  This is a short introduction to the firm and how design operates.  While we’re uniquely interested in what’s important to our clients this short orientation reveals our background and how we organize their project.

Traditional Office

Involve the Designer as soon as possible

Our  Initial Consultation usually takes 2-3 hours and it’s a chance for clients to become more comfortable with sharing their likes and preferences. Briefly speaking with us by phone prior to this appointment helps clients feel better equipped to schedule this first appointment.  So let’s discuss some of what you can expect.

1.) Project Goals

We begin your project with a room-by-room assessment. It’s the discovery of  your likes or dislikes regarding your current arrangement. Full disclosure of budget and timeline parameters will help us gauge the scope of the project. During this process we’ll also collect before picture as a reference for your floor planning needs

2.) Style Guide

The resource of our Style Guides helps us narrow and articulate your preferences.  Not to mention it joins our ideas to communicate our vision. This proprietary feature is exclusive to our firm and each item was hand pick by our qualified design staff.  Furthermore, the Style guide covers furnishings, artwork, accessories and lighting that we as designers find irresistible.

3.) Wish-list and Color Palette Creation

In addition to the Style guide we compile a snap shot of what’s important to you.  This invaluable piece of the puzzle is better known as your wish list and color palette.  With everything involved in completing your project these two samples help consolidate your progression.  Moreover, we update you weekly so there is no guess work about what’s happening next.

4.) Measurements for scale and proportions

We always take measurements regardless of project size.  Equally important are the drawings we generate after the appointment.  In light of what’s available in stores, these drawings communicate our teams collaborative vision.  Additionally, we’re able to see what’s possible before making major purchases. Furthermore 2D and 3D visuals also help other contractors involved in your projects completion and timeline.

5.) Setting the Delivery Date

Despite all the apps and time management software, this is the area where we find our clients struggle the most.  By setting a estimated completion date we’re ensuring all parties unite towards a common goal.  Otherwise we’re left in the dreaded wishful thinking zone where no project is ever set for completion.  Above all we want to see you reach your design goals so by having a firm date in mind we will help you plan for project success.
