Whether you have a large or small project on the horizon, a consultation is the first step in the design process. The initial consultation consists of a 1.5 hr meeting (minimum) in your home or business to discuss your ideas, your vision and your wish list in detail.
Any or all of the following design elements and products may be discussed; space planning, colour scheme, custom millwork, flooring, tile layout, lighting and plumbing fixtures, cabinetry, countertops, window treatments, furniture, decor and any other design related questions.
- Design Consultation: new construction or renovation planning
- Colour Consultation: paint/finish selection, placement and product information
- Styling: Sourcing and placement of new or existing furniture, fixtures, artwork & accents
- Furniture & Fabrics: Custom furniture, window dressings, toss cushions, re-upholstery
- Product information/recommendation and service referral
Following the consultation, an estimate for design planning will be presented according to your requirements. Design planning may include any or all of the following services:
- Drawings: AutoCAD or Revit (3D, colour renderings)
- As-built and proposed floor plans
- Elevations: conceptual drawings to show custom design such as millwork (built-in cabinetry) or tile layout.
- Materials and Finishes: flooring, wall tile, countertops, plumbing & electrical fixtures, hardware, furniture, wallpaper and window treatments.
- Colour: paint selection, paint mapping and product specification
- Budget building
Once the construction phase begins, I will work with your contractor on your behalf to implement the design. Having a liaison who understands the design and the overall vision will help to keep the project running smoothly which will help you focus on the things that matter most to you.
- Site meetings and communication with client, contractor, trades and suppliers
- Coordination of installations and services pertaining to design
- Order and arrange delivery of products and furnishings
- Furniture installation and styling
