This is your time to share your vision, while we evaluate the possibilities. Through a collaborative process, we bring creativity and practicality together, providing you with a working budget and confirming we are aligned with your expectations.
Let’s bring your ideas to life! Our skilled architectural and interior design team will translate your ideas into a tangible plan. We ensure that every detail is accounted for, aligning with building code regulations and optimizing efficiency of the building process.
After incorporating your feedback and obtaining your approval, we create comprehensive construction drawings. These serve as the roadmap for our team, ensuring that no detail is overlooked.
To ensure transparency and mitigate any surprises, we provide you with a detailed fixed quotation after the design has been approved. This detailed comprehensive quote gives you a clear understanding of the financial investment required, granting you peace of mind and eliminating uncertainties.
Optional decorating meeting
Decorating proposal meeting
One of our decorators will initiate a consultation to discuss your project and assess your needs for services. They will discuss your budget and confirm approximate costs for a decorating retainer. From there, they will schedule a decorating meeting if needed, or begin procuring samples for your selections.
If you would like the decorator to get involved in multiple selections a decorating meeting will be required. During this meeting, the decorator will review your inspiration images, discuss your needs, and assess any existing finishes or furniture to consider. This is how the decorator gathers all they need to know to create the vision for the project.
Whether a design meeting was needed or not, the next step is sample procurement. The decorator will gather optional finishes for all the requested selections – whether that be for one or two particular selections or for all the required selections for the project. This is where you sit back and relax while the decorator does it for you.
The decorator will present you with the proposed selections. The proposal can include finish samples, photos, presentation boards, drawings, or 3D renderings. Your decorator will review the options with you and guide you to finalize the selections for your project. If required, the decorator will make any changes and set up a follow up meeting if needed.
