Design Process Preparation

Here are our recommendations to ensure our designer creates the space you envision:

Compile images on Pinterest or Houzz that reflect your style and also components you would like to incorporate into your space. This will ensure our designers can create the look you’re envisioning.

Create a must-have list and check with family if they have any preferences or input

Think about a realistic budget – luxury home design is subjective and it is important to know what you’d like to invest so your designer can guide you toward products that will allow you to stay within your budget. If you don’t know where to start, we have the expertise to partner with you on creating a budget too.
