Furniture + Small Renovations Process

Step 1 : Client Discovery Call – This initial 15-20 minute call with our design team allows us to learn about you, your project, and your desired timeline. We will provide you with information about our design services and fees and can answer any questions that you may have about working with us. If our services and your project seem like a good fit, we will then schedule an initial in-home consultation based on our current project calendar.

Step 2: Initial In-Home Consultation – Our design team will meet with you in your home to discuss all of the details of your project and start brainstorming ideas. We want to learn how you want to use each of your spaces and what your preferred design style is, so show us your inspiration photos and things you love! Detailed notes, measurements, and photos of the rooms will be taken for our design team to develop the perfect design plan customized for you. Our service contract will also be reviewed so that we can answer any questions as needed.

Step 3: Project Estimate – Our design team will prepare a comprehensive budget for your project for your review before we start designing. This will include furnishings, accessories, wall treatments, artwork, lighting, shipping costs and any sub-contracting work that will be required to create your dream home. We will include an estimate of the amount of design hours that our team will require to develop and execute your personalized design plan. This comprehensive proposal is a detailed punch list that encompasses all the expected costs of the project.

Step 4: Furniture Plans and Layouts – Once the initial proposal is reviewed and approved, our design team gets to work! Our first step in the design plan is to create to-scale furniture layouts and floor plans for each space. These are developed based on your desired used for each space but also ensures the proper placement and size of furnishings. These proposed layouts will be sent to the client for review and approval.

Step 5: Initial Renderings and Furniture Selection – Our design team will source the right furnishings for your space based on the approved furniture layouts and your style. We will create room renderings with the proposed furnishings and also a furniture schedule to show the details of each piece. We will review these selections with you either in an online video conference or a meeting in our design studio. Once we receive your feedback on each piece, we will make any changes and find alternative options as needed to create a space that is truly reflective of you and your family’s style and needs.

Step 6: 2nd Round Furnishings and Finish Review – During our next in-studio meeting, our design team will review any new furnishing options and will select with you the upholstery, finishes and fabrics for each piece. We will present all of the samples for the selected rugs, window treatments, furnishings, and fabrics so that you can see how all of the colors and textures work together. Once each piece is finalized and approved by you, we will update your proposal with the actual costs of the items that were selected for your spaces.

Step 7: Deposit Payment and Ordering – After you have reviewed your final proposal, an initial deposit in collected to order all of the items as listed on the proposal. Our team will manage all of the orders, track shipment status, and will schedule all of the sub-contractors as needed to make your design plan a reality.

Step 8: Sub-Contracted Labor – Our design team will send over a proposed sub-contractor schedule for your review for any work that needs to be done at your home. After that is finalized, a member from our team will meet the sub-contractors at your home to discuss the details of the project and can also let them in if you are not available. All of the sub-contracted labor will be scheduled to be completed before any of the furnishings are delivered.

Step 9: Install Day – After all of the sub-contracted work is wrapped up and your furnishings have been received at our warehouse, we will contact you to schedule your install day! This is your final install where our team will be onsite to roll out your rugs, deliver your furniture, accessorize your tables and shelves, and hang artwork and window treatments to completely transform your space. If possible, we ask that you make arrangements to be out of your home during this time so that we can present you with a grand reveal when you arrive to your new beautifully designed home!

Step 10: Follow Up and Photos – Any follow up items from installation will be handled by our design team in a timely manner after your final install. You will receive the final invoice for your project from our team. Our marketing team will be in touch to schedule a photoshoot with our photographer for our portfolio and magazine submissions shortly after your install.
