Every space should start with a well thought-out design plan - one that suits the layout of the room and that meets the function of your household. Having a plan not only eliminates costly mistakes (i.e., bringing home a piece that doesn't fit or using a furniture arrangement that doesn't achieve your goals), but also gives you the confidence to know when a piece you love is just right for your home. Many full-service projects look something like this:

1.  Initial meeting.  I identify the scope of work and get acquainted with your style. I also advise you on which features of your home to accent and which flaws to minimize.  

2.  Create a budget and space plan.  I provide electronic floor plans that identify all items to be specified and sourced. I also give you an overall project budget. I find many people aren't certain what they should spend on various projects or pieces, so I offer guidance here as well.  


3.  Determine a style and vision for your home.  This part can be somewhat collaborative and will involve sharing electronic inspiration images of spaces, furniture, fabrics, lighting, art, or anything else that fits your style.

4.  Create a design plan and recommend product options for your approval.  I define the color scheme, lighting scheme, furniture layout, fabrics and textiles, rugs, and any art options for the room. Upon approval, we order and schedule delivery for the selections.
