THE DESIGN PROCESS
ESTABLISH THE RELATIONSHIP
Let's get to know one another! In this informal step, we naturally ask and answer the questions necessary to determine if we are a good fit. You'll acquaint us with the style you are seeking, the guidelines of your budget, and any other aspects of your project where you want help. In turn we will share insights and ideas related to your project. We'll explain how we might specifically tailor our services to meet your needs. We'll discuss compensation in more depth. If all are agreed, we'll mutually sign an engagement agreement and move forward.
DISCOVER & CONCEPTUALIZE
Let's get to work! Together we will begin to dig into the details. Aspects of this phase will include further interviews as well as site visits, in person or sometimes virtually, to measure and record existing conditions. These help us contextualize your stylistic goals and desired outcomes. We'll be sourcing more ideas, materials, and samples for your consideration. We may provide you with renderings or space plans as we flesh out various ideas that hold the most promise. We will also have fun! You might join Blair for a trade day in a bigger market or city. The culmination of this phase is a comprehensive proposal for you to modify or approve.
PLAN & PREPARE
Let's plan it all out! Bringing your many layered decisions to life requires coordination: lots of details and logistics. Activities that characterize this detailed phase of the design and decoration process include ordering your selections as well as scheduling various deliveries of goods and services at appropriate times and places, to and from the right people: all to bring your vision into reality as efficiently and effectively as possible. During the "plan and prep" phase we frequently revisit budgets as we receive the most accurate costs for all facets of your design. We reassess where we are and make adjustments where needed.
Let's make it happen! During this exciting phase we all see the vision take shape in reality. Construction, if a part of your process, begins and continues under our careful supervision. When spaces are prepared and finishes applied, we then commence with actual furniture installation - the delivery and perfect placement of your new and beautiful things, making all ready for the finishing touches.
Let's finish in style! It's time to add the closing touches, which can make all the difference. In the finalization stage, we style every detail, leaving no space unfinished, no moment untouched. We shift. We adjust. We polish. We accessorize. We also identify and resolve any deficiencies. Even the most excellent projects fall short of perfection. With our experience and your thorough "owner's eye," we identify every problem area, no matter how small, and fix it, fill it, or when necessary, redo it.
