Modern Interior Design Process

Phase 1: Getting To Know You

This stage includes a meeting in your home which we consider as the most important one that we will ever have with you. Our service areas include: Aurora, Richmond Hill, and Vaughan, Ontario. The purpose of this meeting is to define parameters of the project and define your specific needs. We’ll ask you to share with us inspiration photos of styles, furniture, and spaces you like.

The first meeting is all about getting to know you: learning about your lifestyle, your hobbies, your travels, what you like, what you don’t like, how you want to feel in your home, and what you want your space to say about you when friends and family come to visit.

During the meeting, we also assess your openness to explore new ideas. When you hire a designer, expect to be stretched. One reason why clients hire us instead of designing their home themselves is that we can show them ideas, colors, furnishings, and options that they could not imagine on their own.


Phase 2: The Plan

This stage is where we define the scope of work. Specifically, how much time will be invested to develop a budget and design plan for the project. The plan will include the following:

  • Floor Plan
  • Design Concept Board with photos of what your room or rooms will look like to experience how all of the design aspects will work together.
  • Recommended color scheme, paint colors, furniture/cabinetry, required trades, finishes, fabric, art, flooring/rug, lighting, and accessory suggestions
  • Itemized list of pricing for all the above
  • Design fee’s

During this phase, you may love everything we’ve selected, or you might ask us to go away and find some other options. That’s ok. Designing is a process and should be a collaborative one. Our goal is to make sure we provide you with a plan to love where you live.

Phase 3: The Work

During this part of the design process, we are booking the required trades to meet the timeline agreed to and ordering your items to turn the plan into reality.


Phase 4: The Waiting

This phase can feel a little slow as high-end products and fine furnishings take time to make and deliver. Rest assured that you will love your project more than you thought you would. Expect things to go right — trust us to fix them if they don’t.

Phase 5: Loving Where You Live

This is it, the grand finale. This phase is all about installation day. This may entail some things that clients are sometimes surprised to learn:

  • Clearing your space for installation day may take some advanced planning.
  • We can refer you to movers or haulers and even charitable organizations open to receiving your donations.
  • “Out with the old; in with the new” means deep cleaning too! We recommend hiring a cleaning service to detail and clean your space before we come in with all your beautiful new things.
