How We Work
Full-service interior design is ideal for clients local to the San Diego area, and homeowners undergoing remodels, renovations, or large-scale design projects. We are flexible, yet we have structured processes that create realistic expectations and lead to more ease in the project.
We turn your house into a home.
How Does Full Service Design Work?
Full-service interior design process:
1. Initial consultation
2. Conceptual discussion and design
3. Construction Proposal
4. Procurement, implementation, and installation
Our full-service approach enables us to manage projects from initial concept through to completion, designing your home down to the final detail. It is our job to take care of the major and minute design details that turn a house into a home.
Step 1: Initial Consultation
Your home should be a reflection of you. Our process starts with getting to know you and your dreams for your home. We’ll talk about how you’d like to feel and function in your home and the results you’d like to see from our work together. We’ll discuss design direction and your style, project, goals, expectations, budget and timing. This phase is also where you get to share your dreams for your space. We will review How We Work so you are clear how we can help you accomplish a successful project and what service or package best suits your needs. Includes complimentary 20 minute call.
Step 2: Conceptual Discussion and Design
We offer an initial in home consultation for up to 2 hours where we review your existing space: what is and is not working for you. We take in all of your input and desires, specifics of your space, and the needs of your family. We create a Scope Of Work and assess your priorities and discuss the details and decisions necessary to achieve your desired results. After the initial consultation we use the Scope of Work we created to develop a proposal with a Design Fee. You know up front what the cost of design services are.
Step 3: Detailed Design
After conceptual design, we dig into all the details. Agreements, process and procedures, measurements and photography, presentation and sharing of inspiration photos and design concepts, products and materials. We create a “True North” that will guide all design decisions. We will propose all items for your approval and a detailed design complete with color, fabric, finish, and detail all within your approved scope, budget, and timing.
Step 4: Purchasing, Implementation, and Installation
We work with trades that share our commitment to excellence and client satisfaction. We will walk our contractor through your project and provide them with the necessary documentation to give you a thorough bid. We communicate with vendors and contractors on the specific details that make the design cohesive and “you.” Our team will oversee installations to ensure that the proper transformation is complete and that we’ve created the home of your dreams.
If you are someone who wants to manage your own project and need expert guidance we offer consultation only packages.
We curate custom design packages in order to suit your space, vision, and personality.
