Initial Consultation

To understand the full scope of the project, Deborah offers a one and a half-hour initial design consultation. She brings over 20 years of professional experience right to your door! During this initial meeting, Deb will take a brief tour of your home to help her understand the space, lighting and other elements that should be considered in the design plan. Your style and functionality for each space, along with identifying existing furnishings that should be included in the plan, are mutually determined. She is likely to ask many questions and will observe everything from your color and pattern preferences to your stature, to be sure that everything fits you just right! This is a time to get to know each other and decide how to move forward. Before the design process begins, you will agree on the design elements that will be required and identify a target budget.  If you decide to work together, you will sign a contract and an inventory and photographs are taken, along with room measurements, so that she can create an outstanding design just for you.


Presentation Appointment

She will return to her studio and get to work researching the best solutions matching top quality home furnishings products with the lifestyle look you desire whether it is traditional, transitional or contemporary. Floor plans, mood boards or renderings and a power point are created to help you visualize various combinations of design elements in your space.

A week to 10 days later, she will schedule the presentation appointment where she reveals the recommendations for creating the home that you wish for. Together, you will collaborate to craft the perfect design plan to suit your preferences, lifestyle and budget. Deborah will offer a number of design and product options, all personalized for you. Samples of products such as flooring, tile, hardware, wood furniture, paints, drapery and upholstery fabrics enable you to envision the completed scheme. Usually, all of the design elements are chosen, coordinated and agreed upon in this appointment.

She will work with you from the idea stage all the way through delivery and installation of products, until the final reveal!

Follow Up

In the days following the presentation appointment, Deborah will contact the suppliers and order the items according to exact specifications.

You may be assured that she will offer monthly progress reports. As your products are ordered from a wide range of vendors, items arrive individually and warehoused safely until everything arrives. Some things may arrive within weeks, custom items may take several months depending on fabric availability and production schedules.

Deb will take care of overseeing the design process and communicate aspects that require your involvement such as scheduling painting (if required), delivery and installation dates.

Reveal Day!

This is the day that you’ve been waiting for when it all comes together. Deb will encourage you to spend a few hours out while her team of interiors experts will deliver, install and style your custom design, making sure that everything is “just so”- down to towels folded and flowers in vases. Every last detail will be handled. Sit back and relax as your space is transformed into the home of your dreams!

Once your fabulous new surroundings are complete, Deborah will invite you to return and take in the transformation.

“My mission and goal is to work with you to make the world more beautiful, one room at a time! I’m committed to making your design experience fulfilling.”

Deborah will prepare a written quote at the completion of the presentation. This will include reasonable retail cost of products, taxes, shipping, delivery, as well as and window treatment and installation. Upon 70% deposit, your orders will be placed.

The 30% balance will be due at the final review of your project on Reveal Day.
