Secrets of an Interior Designer


Interior Design Process

The interior design process is exciting and complicated; and as you probably imagine, a lot of creative thinking and planning go into designing a home.  Our goal as professional interior designers is to help our clients avoid common pitfalls and costly mistakes.  We guide our clients and work closely with them to make sure their home is not only beautiful, but practical and functional! Here’s a snippet into the process…

One of our most recent jobs involved furnishing the entire house – including all lighting and tile.  For the family room, we began by taking detailed measurements from the architectural plans and created a 2d floor plan that allowed for multiple seating and didn’t hinder the open-feel of the adjacent kitchen.
We then produced a 3d rendering of the room, along with a concept page which we presented to the client for approval.
The room was large and the fireplace needed some loving!  We re-designed the fireplace to align with the windows and create a focal point for the room.  We applied a calacatta mosaic tile for entire surround, and calacatta gold marble for the fireplace surround (remnant from the kitchen island!).
Here’s a shot of the room in progress – we still have our x-benches to install and a few more pillows – but it’s almost finished!  Check back on our website soon for updated portfolio images when it’s totally completed!
