Our interior design process is pretty straightforward. We believe that getting to know our clients is crucial to delivering the bedroom design, dining room design, or beautiful living room you deserve.


You’ve decided to hire an interior designer, now let’s talk about working together! We’ll start with a free discovery call. During this call, we will briefly talk about the scope of the project and determine if we are a good fit.


During this one-hour visit in your home, we will visually see what you wish to have done. We will have a conversation about the details of your project and discuss style, colors, layout, and any other elements for your design. We will also take measurements, photos, and ask you to fill out our onboarding form. From here, we will move forward accordingly with one of our service offerings.
