initial consultation

Most of our design services begin with an in-space design consultation, where we take the time to get acquainted with you and your needs and desires for your project. The initial in-space consultation meeting lasts for up to two hours. We will take a tour of the spaces to be decorated or renovated and any other areas that might be relevant to your design plan, we discuss your needs, your vision, budget, time frame and expectations and make recommendations for improving the space. This is a working appointment where we provide you with valuable information, tips, advice, resources, and a solid direction for your design project.

 

We will also review our "Mission" our "Design Process," and the terms of our "Letter of Agreement."
