Are You A full-service Interior design Client?

Full-Service Interior Design is ideal for Clients who are considering new build design, renovation design, or kitchen and bath design. Each design project is as unique as the homeowners are: tailored to individual needs of function, lifestyle, personal aesthetic and dreams. Our attention to detail, connection to architectural elements, craftsmanship and collaboration with Architectural Technologists, Contractors, and Allied Professionals leads you to a highly personalized space.

We work on a select number residential interior design projects per year with new build design and renovation design projects typically in the 6 figure range and kitchen and bath design typically in the mid-5 figures; all private residence values are in the range of $450,000 to $20 million. We aim to work centrally in Metro Vancouver, but we do work across British Columbia and Canada for homeowners that are aligned with our core values and design process. If this does not describe you, your budget isn’t in the mid-5 figure range, or perhaps you’re in a remote area, consider our Designer Concierge services.

This essential 2nd step a 1-on-1 in-home consultation and a detailed proposal. Fees are credited toward your first payment.

How It Works

Our Residential Interiors projects are billed as a flat-fee and based off a Menu of Services that is calculated by the area we are designing and level of complexity. Don’t worry, we outline our fees, process and timeline in a detailed Proposal for Design Services. Each step of our process is carefully planned around ensuring that you receive the best value for our expertise possible. We have successfully completed over 200 projects in 8 years of business, so we believe this speaks volumes about our track record.

Phase 1: Discovery

1. Project Discovery Call

Let’s start the conversation with a complementary Project Discovery Call. During the 30 minute telephone call with Corey, we aim to dig-in and find out what are your motivations, budget, notions of your design style, and schedule. Following our call, you’ll receive preliminary design service recommendations based on your needs.

2. PROJECT Consultation

Next up is to meet face-to-face at your home or business with Corey. During this meeting our goals are to fully-understand your project goals of style, function, budget, and timeline. From there, we develop a written proposal that outlines how we work, an investment profile for the project, our flat design fees, and our design work schedule.

3. Hire us!

Are you as excited to start as we are? We work with you to on-board you in our Client Profile where you will see your project happen. Inside is your Contract, Invoices, credit card payment processing, appointments, meeting notes and file sharing. We want you to be comfortable messaging us from within so that nothing is lost or forgotten in the next phases.

Phase 2: Conceptual Design

4. layout + SOLUTION

With the project site documentation, such as as-builts or measurements, we synthesize information gathered and create layout solutions to address the needs. Each layout reflects on architectural details, moulding and millwork, cabinetry design, lighting, and connection to community or scenic views. The final result is a design solution.

5. product selection

From there, we source materials and finishes by gathering samples and quotations. There are some showroom meetings to select appliances and plumbing fixtures. All the products are gathered together inside our Client Portal for your review and approval. The final result is a preliminary concept package used by Contractors to bid on the project.

6. Budget submissions

An important part of determining the feasibility and value engineering recommendations for a design project is to receive and compare submissions from Contractors or Builders who bid on the project. We produce an apples-to-apples analysis and research that recommends a successful Contractor that both of us understand and can align with.

Phase 3: Design Execution

7. VALUE ENGINEERING

A result of the the budget analysis is a product and solution update called “value engineering”. During this critical step, we assess all the outcomes and direction to either recommend alternate materials and design solution options that align with your values - be items that affect price, function, style, or availability. The result is a solid foundation to move forward.

8. WORKING DRAWINGS

In this step, you will see less of us but that does not mean we aren’t working hard! We produce sets of working drawings that are uploaded as images in your Client Portal for you to review anytime. You can review and toggle between a Message and Deliverables, working with us as we go. We also do amazing 3D walkthroughs for you!

9. ISSUE FOR CONSTRUCTION

Depending on who’s providing permit drawings will depend on the level of details we provide you. Once all details are approved, the construction drawings and specifications are ready to transmit. One of the amazing parts of our process is that your Client Portal has everything ready to plot and print in a Project Binder or use directly online.

Phase 4: Design Administration

10. ORDER + PROCUREMENT

We make this process easy because we manage everything inside the Client Portal. Once an order is purchased from us, we manage the quality, shipping, delivery and installation methods from within. Our trusted trade partners work with us on production and delivery timelines. We’ll also work alongside your Contractor/Builder for timely a receipt.

11. FIELD DESIGN REVIEW

During the demolition, framing, rough-in and drywalling of your project, we coordinate our Field Design Review with the Contractor or Builder. Our purpose here is to ensure that the construction drawings and site are a match, and no pesky surprises or mistakes happen causing cost overruns. We pride ourselves on being able to do this from a distance too.

12. DEFICIENCY + INSTALL

It’s been a long road and we’re glad you’ve hung in there, but there’s just a bit more to go before final occupancy permits are issued. We walk thru the project site with you to develop a deficiency list once finishing work begins. Although we do not personally install our cabinetry, we work with the skilled installer to ensure a quality completion.
