Studio A's Exclusive Turn-Key Design Process

#1. The Consultation

The Design Consultation is the launching pad for every new project we take on. During this two-hour meeting we will discuss the scope of your project, your goals, your budget, and shop your home and the web for items to complete your space. We’ll ask questions to learn about your tastes, your lifestyle, and how you intend to use the space such as:

  • Aesthetic and functional needs for your space;

  • Explore your personal preferences and lifestyle;

  • And discuss your project budget and timeline.

This is also your opportunity to ask any questions, show us pictures you like. Before I conclude, I'll give you three fabulous ideas for your space, photograph it and then go back to our office and think up more creative ideas to share with you.  We do ask that you make sure all decision-makers are at this meeting so all questions can be asked and answered accordingly.


#2. The Design Phase

Now that we’ve agreed on your project focus, we start developing a color scheme and sourcing fabrics, furniture, fixtures, and materials.
  • Custom furniture and built-ins are designed and finishes chosen.

  • Materials for flooring, counters, and cabinetry are selected.

  • Wall and floor coverings are considered.

  • Window treatments are designed and fabrics, trims, and hardware are chosen.

  • A lighting plan is developed.

  • Drawings, samples, and pictures are gathered.

  • Quotes and pricing are researched and cataloged.

In other words, this is where it all comes together and every detail is considered. Throughout this step, we will contact you at regularly scheduled intervals to discuss the different elements of the design. Clients will receive a weekly update via email on the status of their project. At the end of this phase, you will be presented with carefully edited selections that represent the best choices for your space.

Creating the design scheme is a time-consuming process and can require several weeks, depending on the scope of your project.

Before trade work or purchasing begins, you will receive a proposal that details the work to be done or items to be purchased along with all known associated costs. (Freight and delivery are usually billed separately). Proposals are the safety net to make sure we stay on the same page throughout the design execution and nothing gets purchased without your approval.

After trade work begins, we manage the project and stay on top of the details. We will crosscheck to make sure work by trades is underway or has been satisfactorily completed, all concerns have been addressed, furniture ordered, payments made, schedule on track, and no detail overlooked. We’ll schedule a brief meeting to review anything left outstanding or any changes that need to be made.


#3. Procurement & Project Management

#4. The Installation

This is where the vision becomes a reality. All work by trades has been completed. Now the furniture is delivered, window treatments are installed, rugs laid, accessories placed and art hung. Installation for a whole home usually requires one week, and we prefer clients remain off site until the last detail is in place. When you return, you return to your dream home
