It is important that you get that perfectly customized look that can only come from one person - you. Its your life. Its your Style. Its your Money.
Clear communication between you and your designer is key to building the right plan. It is as important that a designer know the ambiance you want as well as the elements that make up the room. Do you want your room to be layered and luxurious or tailored and understated? Colorful and eclectic or casual and contemporary? And functionally, what are your needs? Do you want privacy or glare control in your window treatments? Furniture fabrics that can stand up to kids and pets?
Pictures speak a thousand words and are extremely helpful in the initial communication with a designer. Before you meet, take some time and search through images of rooms online at Pinterest or Houzz or in home magazines. When you see something you like, make a copy.
Take out your cell phone and shoot your room from different angles. It will help us see the size and shape of your windows and any architectural challenges. If there’s a major focal point that will dictate décor (such as art, antiques or area rugs), be sure to shoot that, too. Take pictures of special pieces you already own and if possible, bring any fabric and flooring samples you might have.
If you’re considering window treatments, for estimating purposes, we’ll need to know the approximate window dimensions, number of windows, and ceiling height – plus any features we need to work around, like bookcases, shelving, radiators, French doors and so forth.
Our designers will help you select the best colors, fabrics, furniture, lighting, and art work for your room and your style. Once they know how you want the room to feel, they will be able to guide you to pieces that can attain the desired ambiance but still work within the confines of your lifestyle, your actual functional needs, as well as your budget.
