The Way We Work
At the beginning, we’ll learn about your lifestyle, family, and what inspires you. Learning from all family members is key. We’ll understand the area’s use to create an optimized and dynamic space plan.
Ideas are a collaborative effort and building strong trust and relationship leads to a wonderful home. With a holistic approach, we begin exploring creative concepts. All things are taking into consideration from the surrounding environment to ambient light. With understanding the way you live, we present options and solutions so you can live the way you want to live.
Lighting, colors, textures, patterns, fabrics, and materials. During the design development phase, we go from conceptual and abstract down to specifics. We finalize the floorplan, design architectural features, finishes, and lighting.
With the floorplans complete, we move into selecting furniture, accessories, and art. We will show you a comprehensive package of options to create your home the way you want to live.
PLANNING, INSTALLATION, CONSTRUCTION
Continuing with the management of the project we coordinate an installation date and timeframe. We are the concierge and manage all efforts through completion. If there is construction in your project, we work with the architect and contractor from start to finish.
The personalization elements are integrated. Everything from clothing, items from traveling, art, and toys make a home yours.
