Design Process

A full-service boutique interior design firm specializing in design of entire homes and individual rooms. We are here for you each & every step of your design project, from beginning to end. Sharon will meet and work with you to create a uniquely personal design for your home and both she and the rest of the team will take care of you throughout the implementation phase of your project. Here is an overview of how the process works:

Step 1

Submit a project inquiry on our contact page. We'll then send you a packet of information that includes an overview of our services & fees. If you like what you see, we'll set up a phone consultation to find out about your design space and needs and to introduce you to our company and philosophy. This first conversation is about mutually determining if we'd like to work together on the project. We'll go over your project & desired budget, the design process, our fees, and any other questions or concerns you may have.

Step 2: Survey & Agreement

Once we have agreed to work together, we'll meet with you at  your home or project site to assess your current interior and discuss what changes and additions you have been considering. If your project is a full home renovation or new build, we will also meet with the architectural team and/or builder. At this point, measurements are made or blueprints are given, and colors & materials are discussed. We talk with you and your family about the activities & mood you want your home to have, so that we can create the environment that best suits your lifestyle. An estimate of the number of hours that will be required to design your home will be given to you & agreed upon after this meeting.

Step 3: Design Plan & Presentation

We create a custom DESIGN PLAN for your home. Based on a combination of what we have learned from you and your own creativity, we will PRESENT our design concept through the use of photos, floor plans, fabric, paint, flooring samples and other materials we recommend. This presentation will take place at the Pickwick House studio or at your home, depending upon the needs of your project. At this point, the design is tweaked and/or approved into a final design plan.

Step 4: Implementation

Once you approve the design, furnishings and materials are ordered. 
All painting, construction and other work is scheduled by your project manager to make sure that all of your needs are met. The project manager is there for you to answer any of your questions, arrange deliveries, and to coordinate with contractors through installation & punch list.

Step 5: Accessorizing

A room isn't completed until it's been accessorizing and filled with things that mean something to you. We will install this final layer with a professional team of installers to create a space that's personal and completely "you."
