NEW BUILDS + RENOVATIONS

This service is tailored to clients who are building a new home, renovating an existing home, and to commercial clients in Washington, DC who are designing a new space, such as a restaurant, office or retail store. This service applies whether you want to renovate your entire home, or remodel a few rooms. An interior designer is one of the first hires you should make for a project of this scale, which ensures the best outcome, and a seamless, efficient process. We’ll work with you to identify the scope of work, set realistic expectations around your timeline and budget, and identify the team needed to complete your project, including finding an architect and builder.

DESIGN + DECORATING

We offer full service interior design to Washington, DC clients who want to fully update their home or business, but do not need renovation services. We’ll skip all of the messy construction, and dive right into furniture layouts and finishes. We’ll specify fixtures, finishes and furniture, and we will handle the procurement and installation of all merchandise. We identify any trades that are needed to execute the design, such as wallpaper installers and upholstery workrooms. This service culminates in a single or multi-day installation and styling session of all furniture, art and accessories.

DESIGN CONSULTATIONS

A design consultation is perfect for projects with a smaller scope of work and those who want to be hands-on with their own project. We meet at your home or business for a two hour visit, during which we can walk through your entire home and provide general feedback and ideas, or focus on a specific room. We will discuss everything from flooring materials, to paint color suggestions, and furniture layouts, and we can provide suggestions for specific vendors and retailers that are a good fit for your project. This service is popular with clients in Washington, DC who are shopping for a new home. We will provide insights on the potential of a property, and discuss improvements that can be made to make the home work for you. If you are located outside of the DC Metro area please inquire about our virtual interior design consultation service.
