First, we meet to get an understanding of what you are looking for. From interior design, to exterior design, to color design; we discuss what will meet your needs. We will take "before" photos of the space that we will be working with, as well as preliminary measurements. During that meeting we will settle on the scope, estimated cost, and schedule of services.
We can always make changes going forward, but it is important to spend time up-front getting this project framework laid out so that you know what you will be receiving in exchange for your hard-earned dollars.
With the scope of project in place, Laura gets to work on the design concept. We usually start by creating one or more design concept drawings, typically hand-drawn layouts. We often explore various design options for your consideration that may include color swatches, materials, pattern ideas, etc. During this time we are considering all of the details and requirements of your project to create feasible options for you and your space.
After the drawings are complete, we meet again to review all of the design options before deciding on the final direction for your space.
3D Design Modeling
Having trouble envisioning how it will all come together? After you decide on the design concept, this step helps take the guesswork out of how your finished space will look when complete.
A 3D model is created to bring your project to life so you can view your new space from multiple angles. The 3D model allows you to really see and experience the new space, as well as get a better sense of the layout and materials.
Once the design is finalized, we can begin purchasing the materials, get bids, and start the work to make your project a reality. Many times I am fully involved in this part of the project, but sometimes not. You can choose my design services only to move forward with your own vendors or a DIY project. Or for a full service scope, Living by Laura can handle the entire project execution for you.
