When you are ready to start, this is what I need from you:
Download and fill out the Design Profile Questionnaire so that we can get to know each other. With the questionnaire you will have the opportunity to tell me what your design style is, how you want to feel in the space and anything else that you want me to know about your room.
Photographs of your space. A picture is really worth a thousand words. Take at least 12 photograph of your space. I will need all photographs of all 4 walls from corner to corner and floor to ceiling. Also photograph at an angle showing two or more walls at every corner. And last I need a picture of your ceiling and floor.
Photographs and dimensions of your existing furniture. Take photos of items that you want to keep and work into the design. Then simply measure each piece providing the height, width and length.
Draw a floor plan of your space and measure the length of each wall from corner to corner indicating the height and width of all opening in the walls such as, door, windows, walkways, arches, closets, etc. Measure the height of the ceiling. On the floor plan indicate the direction of the space, North, East, South, and West. On each wall note all vents, electrical outlets, and sconce locations, window locations and door opening. Write down all measurements on the floor plan in feet and inches.
Inspirational pictures for your space. Send me images of rooms torn out of magazines, or downloaded from the internet that best illustrate how you want your room to look and feel.
After you have gathered all the information, load your pictures and scan your document onto your computer, and send them to me using wetransfer.com.
Here is where you get to sit back and relax and where I start designing your space.
I will review your design profile questionnaire and find out what your design style is, what inspires you, your color preferences, and get to know you better.
Next I will go over your room photographs and get an idea of how your space looks like and also visualize what you see everyday.
Afterwards, I will review your photographs and dimensions of your existing furniture. This will help me determine what pieces you are using and how and where to incorporate them in your design.
I will analyze your inspirational photos. Your inspiration photos will tell me how you want your space to look like and feel like. Through analyzing your inspirational photos I will determine the design direction of your space.
Next we will have “virtual face” time via Skype, where we will pin down your priorities, review your questionnaire, drawings, and inspirational sheet. You get to ask me any questions, and I will talk about ideas that I have for your space.
Afterwards, I will put together a customized plan showing your new furniture placement, complete with furniture, fabric and color suggestions, a to do list, shopping guide and how to guide.
Within 4-6 weeks you will receive your custom designed box delivered to your doorstep.
Your box will include a cd with the following:
