Full Service Interior Design
From concept to construction we are with you every step of the way. First, we start by listening to you and document your individual preferences, requirements, and goals. Afterwards, we will take site measurements of your space and present tailored design concepts for your approval. We will provide you with presentation drawings and renderings to clearly convey your design along with finish samples and proposed fixtures + furnishings.
Once the design is approved, construction drawings and specifications will be created to obtain pricing, build and furnish your project. We believe in strong communication with the general contractor and artisans to ensure quality control from start to finish. We will perform site visits during construction to observe that the work being done is in accordance with the drawings and specifications. We can work with your contractor if you already have one or we can refer you to contractors and artisans from our network.
Our projects range from full interior renovations and new construction to projects without any major remodeling. You may retain us to complete any of the following items; interior build-outs, interior renovations, space planning, selection of interior finishes and fixtures, furniture design, custom millwork design, lighting design, window treatment design and furnishing selections including artwork and accessories. If you already are working with an architect and/or builder we are happy to be a part of your project.
We are aware that our Clients lead demanding lifestyles and manage the purchasing, assembly, and delivery of your furnishings taking care of every last detail. Purchasing and white glove delivery services are provided for all residential and select commercial projects.
