Our Interior Design Process is as Follows:
1. The Consultation:
Your free design consultation is a causal meet and greet for us to learn about each other. We will discuss the improvements you want for your home, any functional challenges, and of course, budget. This relaxed and collaborative experience will help us determine the best way to achieve your goal. We will offer many creative suggestions, including painting, furniture, window treatments, lighting, artwork and accessories. We think outside the box in-order to give our clients the most creative and personalized Design Soul-utionS for their budget.
2. The Design Exercise:
At the conclusion of our initial consultation, you will be assigned "homework". This will consist of you combing through magazines and websites flagging pictures of rooms, items or overall styles you like. Don't overthink it; just follow your instincts. This important exercise helps Design Soul-utionS assess your preferred style. Once we have a "look" established, there is a need to fully understand your lifestyle. Is it a busy household with small children, empty nester condo or a multi-generational home? We will ask questions, lots… and lots of questions, in order to fully appreciate the functionality of your space. Once we identify your existing challenges and establish the feeling you hope to create for your dream home, we then begin our design plan.
3. Design Execution
Because no two clients have the same personal style, nor work in the same manner, we tailor our design method to best suite you. If you prefer to be involved with every detail, then you will. We will shop and make decisions together as we go. If you prefer we make the selections and you approve or make modifications, then we work that way. Advice, guidance and recommendations based on our experience, expertise and vision for your home will be provided, but final approval is yours.
Depending on the project, some of the areas to be addressed:
- Floor Covering Options
- Fabric Selections
- Window Treatment Design
- Paint and/or Wall Covering Options
- Wall Décor and Accessory Options
4. The Design Implementation:
As we initiate our plan and approval has been given, we begin to purchase our selections. One of the keys to our success is our adaptability to each client. It's very important you are comfortable with every phase of the Design Soul-utionS experience. The process tends to run most smoothly when Design Soul-utionS makes all the purchases; however, if you prefer another method, we will accommodate. Regardless of the payment method, to help with expenses, we pass all designer discounts on to you, our valued client. We are involved in the ordering, delivery, installation, styling and arranging of all furnishings and accessories.
