Our refined process starts with great communication, building a relationship and a crystal-clear understanding of what you want in your new space. We’ll get your vision for your home and turn it into a design story that works for your family and space—curated, beautiful and functional. Our goal is to make the process fun, exciting and as streamlined as possible. Here’s how we do it.
Consultation. It all starts here. This approximately two-hour on-site meeting is where Sarah will sit down with you and take in your space. We’ll chat and get all the details we can—if you love bold colours, we want to know. If you define your style as modern, tell us. If your main goal is comfort with a stylish edge, we’re a match made in heaven—our team is all about liveable luxury, and we have the expertise and aesthetic to pull it off. At this first appointment we’ll get your wish list and must-haves, and discuss your overall needs to put together a design proposal we’re confident you’ll fall head over heels for. Leave it to us.
Research + design + present. This is where our team shines. We will develop a design plan and direction, which will include architectural details, finishes, fixtures, colour schemes, furniture plans, millwork and more. We’ll sketch mock-ups and use the latest technology to come up with the proposal that best suits you and your space. Your package will be presented—yes, you’ll get to see complete drawings and renderings, storyboards and even get your hands on samples. (It’s truly the part we love, and we know it will be a thrill for you!)
Implement + install. We have all of the contacts and resources we need to deliver a magazine-worthy home at the end of this process. We’ve been doing this a long time and only work with top-quality construction crews, as well as experts in plumbing, HVAC, electric and painting, etc. We’ll be in communication and on-site to ensure the project is coming along as planned. And when it’s all said and done—walls painted, pillows fluffed, hardware shining, finishing touches added—we’ll do design-TV-like reveal. There’s nothing better than seeing your joy when you see your space.
