FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT WORKING WITH AN INTERIOR DESIGNER

01/

What's the Difference Between Interior Design and Interior Decoration?

If your project includes just the furnishings, light fixtures, and some accessories, then "decoration" is the appropriate service for your needs.  Many trained designers also offer interior decorating services.  If your scope of work includes new construction specifications, or you are working on a renovation of your existing home, meaning - an overall plan that takes into account a concept, a budget, and construction, you are looking for an interior designer who has received training.  The decisions you make, whether with a decorator or designer lead to a comprehensive design concept and specification, and its all in pursuit of one result; your stunning home.

What's the Reason for Bringing in a Designer Early?

Let's look at what happens when you don't bring in a designer first- it's like making a movie without a director; there's no one holding the full vision and no one sharing information with the team in a way they are used to processing the information.  With a  designer on board, you will have someone taking charge of all the decisions, someone who knows exactly how all of the pieces in your very large project puzzle impacts the next, and someone who can, and will, take all of those pieces and create a home that is breathtaking in every way.

03/

When should I Hire an Interior Designer?

We suggest hiring an interior designer before or around the time of hiring an architect, builder or general contractor.  Knowledgeable designers are able to enhance the project and ensure that you receive the end result that is in your dreams.  We're here to guide you and be your advocate through the process.

How Do We Express your Style?

We dig deep before we start because we want to get to know you on a  deep and intimate level.  To get there, we set up meetings with the intention of establishing direction through inspirational elements.  In those meetings we ask lots of questions and listen hard to your answers - because your answers tell us who you are, and what you care about.  Your answers tell us what you love, what's sentimental to you, and what you want to express about yourself.   After we get to know you, and through detailed consideration, we integrate images that communicate our ideas into a new vision for your home.
