the JOURNEY

Whether you’re designing or building a custom home, a kitchen/bath remodel, a full-scale house renovation, or decorating a whole house or number of rooms – it can be overwhelming.  The number of considerations and decisions that take place are many.  My goal as creative director is to ensure the outcome of your project addresses both function and form, enhances your style, and provides a livable space that is timeless and you will enjoy for years to come.

We start with a phone introduction to get a high level view of your project.  You complete the TDI design brief, which gives client and designer detailed insight into the scope of the project, your design aesthetic, expectations of working with a designer and financial investment for the project.

We meet in person to review the brief and engage in conversation. I will get to know you and your family, learn what you envision for your home, what works and what doesn’t, your likes and dislikes and everything in between. We discuss and agree on preliminary timelines, commitments and next steps. The engagement agreement is signed and a retainer paid. 

Back at the studio, I begin the design phase, keeping in mind the functionality of each space and your vision for the project. My expertise is in marrying the two. Space planning, layers of color, pattern and textures, furniture, fabrics, flooring, lighting, art and accessories all co-exist in the design scheme. 

Next, I present the design direction of each space to you in person using digital mood boards, renderings, and samples of fabrics and finishes.  You fall in love with the design concepts, I make adjustments where needed and we move forward with the implementation.

TDI interacts with the architect, builder, contractors and other trades people, as needed and manages the procurement of selections for your home to ensure a seamless process from design creation to installation.

It’s a wonderful journey - one we will both enjoy!
