Through her close collaboration with architects, builders, and contractors, Valerie’s passion for design and ability to understand the specific style of each client results in a home that is not only inviting and approachable but, most importantly, feels like home.
Our Design Process
Step 1: Getting to Know You
Your home should be a reflection of who you are, so during this initial conversation we focus on how you would like to feel and function in the space. We discuss your style and design sensibilities, the project’s scope, our process and our fees. Our design service agreement, defining the scope of the project to be completed, is tailored to your specific needs and provided to you following this initial get together.
Step 2: Getting Creative
We gather all the input we gleaned from our initial conversation, including specificities about your home and the needs of your family. We then provide you with detailed inspiration boards featuring room layouts and our selection of furnishings, each offering a number of alternative selections. Depending on your project’s scope, these may include furniture, cabinetry, countertops, custom upholstery, floor and wall coverings, window treatments, lighting, art and accessories.
Step 3: Getting it Done
Once proposals are signed and payment is received, we place the orders and set a timeline. We oversee and coordinate deliveries and installation including on site supervision, ensuring that the transformation is complete and that we have created the home of your dreams.
