what we offer

Virtual Room Refresh

Our Virtual Room Refresh is perfect for individuals who are looking to refresh their space and are comfortable managing and implementing their own design projects with a solid plan and/or guidance from us. We’ll provide the plan, shopping links, and recommendations to help you through the process.

We will spend two intensive design sessions together, where we can assist in reviewing architectural plans and materials, space planning, design direction, or item sourcing of retail items. This session will take place at the client's project site in person or virtually. Following your session, we will share Recap Materials, which will include everything produced during our time together, such as material selections, vendor contacts, detailed notes, and/or a specific shopping list. What you get depends on what we cover! Our goal is to give you exactly what you need to confidently move forward and execute on the plan we create together.

Designer by your Side

Consultation

Start your project with a consultation. This 90 minute site visit is our time to provide you with design guidance, explore ideas and resources, give you a glimpse of our process and discuss details of your design style and how you would be using the space. After our consultation, our team will provide you with a design fee proposal for one of our services. 


Our process kicks off the moment you inquire about our services where we will schedule a discovery call to better understand your scope. From there we will meet on site for an in person consultation where we will evaluate the space and scope of work. This allows us to put together a custom proposal to retain our firm. After contract is signed and deposit is received, we get ready for our Kick Off Meeting!

01 - Discovery Call + Consultation

The next step is to meet on site for our Kick Off Meeting where we take measurements, review your inspiration photos, and go over your wants/needs. From there, our team begins working on the design concept, floor plans and elevations. We’ll schedule our Design Presentation, along with recommendations and opportunities. We’ll walk you through the details of the design choices and why we think it’s a great fit for your project and lifestyle.

02 - Design Concept + Presentation

Once we’ve finalized the design, we’ll begin the Procurement stage. We will order everything to our warehouse partner for receiving and inspection to prepare us for Install! We’ll be sure to keep you apprised of all lead times during our biweekly updates. If your project has construction, this procurement phase is typically when demo begins.

03 - Coordinating + Tracking

If your project includes construction, this is where Project Management kicks in where we work with the build team to ensure the integrity of the project. While construction is underway, our team is preparing for install! This is likely our favorite day(s) of the whole project. We’ll take care of the whole process, bringing all the details together. We’ll style all the spaces we designed, creating your dream home! 

04 - DESIGN IMPLEMENTATION

After punch list is complete and everything is in place, we'll arrange for a professional photographer to come capture the space. We'll take care of the staging & styling and you'll receive all the gorgeous photos taken along with a Client Spec Book with a list of all the paint colors used, product care and warranties.  

05- Installation + Reveal 

Our Full Service Process

You can make an impactful change in your home both on a functionally standpoint and how you live in the space with purposeful design choices for a comfortable home that can be lived in without reservation. High performance fabrics and finishes are prioritized, and colors are intentionally used in subtle ways that allow clients to add more over the years as they live in their home and collect memories.
