WHAT IS INTERIOR DESIGN?

Interior Design combines artistic and technical solutions to create beautiful spaces. It is the practice of making functional and aesthetically pleasing designs that enhance quality of life in living and working environments. It incorporates space planning, circulation, furniture, lighting, finishes, fixtures, and supporting utilities in accordance with local codes and ordinances.

WHY HIRE A DESIGNER?

An Interior Designer can be your partner, your advocate and your guide through the design process. They can help you to realize your vision and solidify your ideas to create a comprehensive, well planned and project that addresses your needs and offers elegant and practical solutions. Your designer can navigate the complexity of building codes, coordinating with contractors and craftsmen to help your job get done right; on budget, on schedule and to exact specifications.

WHEN TO HIRE A DESIGNER?

The sooner the better! Since so much of the design process takes place before anything is purchased, it is important to involve an Interior Designer early in the process. Once you and your designer have clarified your vision, budget and schedule, your designer will shepherd your through selecting, purchasing, and installation, making the entire process as seamless and stress free as possible.
