Step 1: Introduction
The design process begins with a complimentary 20-minute “Discovery Call” with Lauren where we will discuss your design wants, needs, and expectations, your budget, and the desired time frame for the project. If we are a good fit for one another, the first In-Person Consultation will be scheduled.
Step 2: In-Person Consultation
This is a 60-to-90-minute meeting where Lauren will come to your home to discuss your project in detail. She will tour your home with you and learn about how you like to live in your space. At the end of this appointment, we will have determined your complete Scope of Work and set a preliminary design budget. Shortly thereafter, you will receive a customized Letter of Agreement outlining the whole project and the fixed design fee for your approval.
Step 3: Design Development
Once you are on board, we will begin crafting your unique custom design. This is done in phases so that we remain on the same page every step of the way.
Step 4: White-Glove Purchasing
Once your design is complete and we know that you love absolutely everything, we will place all of your orders for you. We will coordinate with vendors, set up freight and delivery, track shipments, and inform you of the projected installation date as it draws near. We will also communicate with customer service representatives if we find that something isn’t perfect and requires additional attention.
Step 5: Installation
This is the really fun part and definitely a day to celebrate! On a set date, we will deliver all of your new furnishings and set them up for you as only interior designers can do.
Step 6: The Finishing Touches
Renowned mid-century architect and designer Charles Eames said, “The details are not the details. They make the design.” We are huge believers in this! If it was not already in your initial Scope of Work, you can still make your design 100% complete with our Art & Accessories selection services. This can be added to your project at any time. Just ask!
