You have hired us to design and complete a vision for your space and we ask that you do not select significant items without approval to ensure they fit the overall design and/or budget. You will receive detailed specifications for any items to be purchased by you directly.
Independent contractors and other home professionals hired by our clients are an integral part of the design process. We maintain excellent partnerships within our local network and do our best to offer appropriate trade recommendations for the completion of your project with whom we have experienced a high quality of service. We work hand-in-hand with all home professionals to see your project through to fruition and ensure your complete satisfaction.
Increasing the scope of the design is no problem but may require a separate timeline based on our current schedule and client workload.
This depends on the scope of the design and items required for purchase. Occasionally there are delays caused by weather, vendor vacations, product backorders, factory errors, and/or other unpredictable influences. All design and home professionals are expected to maintain reasonable momentum throughout the completion of your project.
Having a clear budget is very important in order for the design process to run smoothly and for your expectations to be met. We will work together throughout our initial consultations to determine a reasonable expectation of cost for your space(s) and make every possible effort to work within your budget parameters, but ultimately it is up to you to keep yourself on budget after receiving design proposals and trade quotes.
Please bring these to our attention immediately throughout the editing process and we will discuss your concerns. Open and honest communication is our policy! If necessary, we will work to find a more desirable solution for you and your home. The decision about what is purchased and installed in your home is ultimately yours as it applies to major furnishings and design elements.
Our policy is to perform one large installation of your non-fixed decor following completion of all trade work, specialty installations, and delivery of all furnishings. Although furnishings and deliveries may arrive at your home in several shipments prior to install day, it is our preference to arrange and, when necessary, assemble these shipments for you at one time upon installation. This makes for an exciting reveal of your new space!
