The design consultation:
Our first appointment, the initial consultation, will last one to two hours. We will tour your home to assess your lifestyle and preferred aesthetic, what the project entails, discuss the budget and what existing pieces you may want to keep.
At the conclusion of the consultation, if we mutually agree we are a good fit to move forward, we collect a retainer and put together a detailed proposal. We know every project presents its own unique set of circumstances, so the proposal is an important part of the design process.
We discuss what you hope to achieve at the end of the project. We take the time necessary to establish the scope of your project, the style you desire, colors you like (or don’t like!), and the investment you’d like to make in the project. Not sure about that? No worries, we help with creating a budget too.
Note that this is not the design presentation. This proposal will outline what we determine is the best course of action for your project and what the proposed investment will be.
