Beginning with research and inspiration, we move through the stages of design to find you the most efficient, functional, and elegant solution, while adhering to practical measures such as budget, accessibility, and timeline.
We are fully aware how stressful design and construction projects can be. Hence, why we offer a comprehensive project-based service for homeowners guiding them through the design and construction process from concept to completion. Blending spatial functionality and aesthetics allow for projects’ success prediction, by effortlessly fusing our clients’ vision with our creative leanings through a democratic process. With over a cumulative 10 years’ experience with renovation and new build projects, we provide a focused expertise to your interior design project while collaborating with your Architect, Engineer or general contractor for a seamless integration. All drawings, concept work and specifications are created electronically and formatted for ease of sharing across all platforms, and readily accessible at the touch of a finger.
As it relates to Airbnb, spending extra on an Airbnb interior designer should be viewed as an investment as it will increase your nightly rate. From furniture to artwork, and appliances to other stylistic details – there are many things that guests consider when comparing vacation homes, and these days they have more options than ever. We specialize in every step of the Airbnb set up and designing process – whether you are remodeling your vacation home all together, preparing for a specific guest, or transitioning your personal home or condo into an appealing vacation rental space. We also provide a comprehensive service which includes interior design, photography and marketing collateral design services. Additionally, our real estate team will assist with finding rental properties, zoning regulation and rate competitive analysis.
For Architects, Builders and Contractors who don't have an Interior Designer on staff, consider adding us to your team as an extended area of specialty for your clients. Our involvement on a project keeps the build process on-track and frees you up from hand holding clients through endless design decisions. Most importantly it means your project will be professionally finished to completion with a single cohesive vision - ultimately attracting more new clients with higher quality projects. Ideally, we love to join a project at the onset, but we can get on board and up to speed at any time. We can work directly with you as part of your team or by referral directly to your client, either for projects or one-time consultation. We believe the ultimate results of any renovation or new build is a design driven collaborative approach. Add us to your team and experience the difference.
A brief is formed by outlining key objectives, assessing design and construction programs, and setting the intention for the project ahead. This phase includes our Design Session, where we do all the listening – we need (and want!) to understand everything about how you live, and how you want to live. Knowing your personal, family and social rituals ensures that we can design your home to fit you perfectly.
Schematic design is designer-speak for gathering and refining ideas to develop a unique design concept (scheme) for your home. Crucially, we’ll look at maximizing livability and use of space. We’ll also offer imagery that represents the mood of the creative direction and get into the fun stuff: selecting materials.
Here you’ll see the schematic ideas translated into a visual design solution. Basically, sh*t’s getting real. We create a preliminary drawing package that clearly communicates the design intent across joinery, finishes, fittings and lighting. Also known as: where your stuff goes and how good it looks surrounded by practical but sexy house things.
Here we resolve exactly how our plans will be built, through detailed drawings and digital 3D models. These become the comprehensive instructions that builders and manufacturers need. Everything’s to code, of course, and sufficient for building permits and certification.
This is when we find the very best builder to suit your project’s needs. We have the tough conversations on your behalf and analyze prices alongside budget and project objectives. Changes may be made to the design to ensure we’re sticking to the right numbers (or you might reach into the secret stash, if you decide you absolutely have to have that favorite feature!).
We liaise directly with builders, trades and architects. We’ll solve any issues that might crop up as construction takes place, but we’ll be on site often to keep an eye on developments and to ensure our design is coming up roses.
At this point, the finish line is nigh and we’re ready to have some serious fun. The final stage to complete your project involves selecting project-specific items and organizing custom-made beautiful things. We will, of course, ensure that your existing possessions are carefully integrated with new purchases.
More than just going shopping (although you can be sure we’ll have a great time doing that, too), here we keep everything on track for delivering up your dream home: preparing and accelerating orders, approving finishes, coordinating deliveries, and making sure everything’s where it should be. Plus a final zhoozh, magazine-ready.
