Consultation Process

Our Process

When you call to set up an interior design consultation we will ask you: 

  • Details regarding the scope of the project

  • The extent of involvement you would prefer

  • A rough budget amount or price point

  • Anticipated timeline

  • Description of the architectural style, existing finish details, and approximate age of your home

  • Types of finishes, fixtures and furniture you want to incorporate

  • Personal taste including likes and dislikes

  • Summary of who lives in the home, what their needs are and any functional requirements

We arrive for the consultation with basic finish samples and product catalogues based on our brief phone discussion (depending on the size of the project and nature of the samples required).  For example: paint fans, Ceaserstone sample book and lighting catalogue for a small kitchen renovation

We come prepared to:
A) Give advice and assist with selections for window coverings, interior finishes, fixtures, furniture, fabrics and paint using samples and catalogues that either we bring, or you provide (we only bring basic samples such as paint fans and product sample books, we do not bring samples that require seeing your home and knowing your style such as tile and fabric samples).
B) View and discuss project details and scope of work, photograph and take necessary measurements (any project involving more than two hours of our time and one site visit requires a scope of work).

Depending on the complexity of the scope we may be able to give you a quote on site, although, often we are required to break down the project itemizing specific details and allotting required time.  Our quotes are
very accurate, giving descriptions for finish, fixture and furniture selections, architectural and shop drawings, 3-d perspectives and renderings.  The hours will be broken down according to task and the scope will include time for presentation to, and selection with, you. 

Once we have your quote completed, we will email it to you. If you decide to continue with us, we require a 50% deposit and signed contract. Upon receiving your deposit, work on your project will commence and a presentation date will be set. 


We will then come to your home to present you with options for finish samples, fixture selections, millwork drawings, architectural detailing, floor plans, etc.  We will also provide you with pricing and delivery times for the options we suggest.

If you are interested in purchasing products through us, we will provide you with a written quote.  We require a 50% deposit on returnable items and 100% deposit on custom and non-returnable items, along with a signed contract.  We arrange the inspection and delivery of all purchases to your home.
