Our Design Process

Depending on your personal preferences, the nature of your project, and your budgetary considerations, as your interior designer, Mark will work with you in a way that will maximize the value you and your home will receive from his services. Typically, you begin with a courtesy telephone consultation during which he learns about your project, you get to know Mark, and the two of you discuss the project, your budget, and the various ways you can work together.

Mark then meets with you for a free consultation to get a thorough understanding of your desires, a review of what there is to work with, designs that appeal to you, and a discussion of what overall results you are trying to achieve. Whatever the styles you prefer, he will guide you through the choices you make to ensure that the end result meets or exceeds your expectations and reflects your personality.

Consulting

The first step is a meeting to get to know each other and the nature of the project. During this phase, Mark will learn your preferences and will review photos, clippings, and swatches that you might have collected as you began visualizing your project. Of course this is also the time to review the current status of your home, unless the project is only for new construction. This is also the time to have budgetary discussions, so that you and Mark will share the same vision as to the expected results from the estimated expense.

Designing

During the design phase, Mark will take measurements and photos of your space or entire home. Mark will then go back to his office where he personally will prepare scaled CAD drawings/designs and in general, work out the specifications for your project. During this time, he will consult with and advise you on fabrics, furnishings, materials, finishes, floor coverings, window treatments, cabinetry, and all other aspects of your project.

Estimating

Once all revisions are made and you are completely happy with the final design, Mark will summarize the materials, labor, and other costs into a complete proposal for your review.

Construction

Mark will oversee every task in the project, from demolition to final touches. He and his expert craftsmens will see to it that your project is completed efficiently, on time, and within budget. During this phase, Mark will act as your GC, ensuring that all the work is done according to the highest standards.
