What Is Full Service Interior Design?

Full service interior design is a comprehensive, start to finish design service that allows my clients to be “hands-off” as their home or office is transformed into a stunning, sophisticated space.

Whether it’s for one room or an entire vacation home renovation, my 15 step process outlines a clear project path that starts with the New Client Meeting and ends with a big Client Reveal (Step 11) and Client Binder (Step 15) documenting the project details. Not every step is used in every project (No need for Step 8 if we’re doing a Room Refresh on guest bedroom) but the process is in place and spelled out for any project. It really helps to take the guesswork and fear of the unknown out of a project for my clients.

Think of it as a chef & her team coming to your home to cook for a party. We collaborate with you and decide what to serve for dinner. My team gathers ingredients to cook, prepares and serves the meal, and you sit down to eat. Short of writing a check, deciding what to have for dinner and what time to eat, your job is done!

Start My Project

What’s my next step? You have a couple options! I’d choose one of the following:

  • Schedule a Discovery Call: If you’ve still got some questions or just want a little one on one time with me (happens a lot), you can schedule a Discovery Call to discuss your project and/or my services in more detail.
  • Schedule a New Client Meeting if you know I’m the designer for you and you can’t wait another second to get your project started.
  • Click on the Start My Project form below, fill out & submit the form and I’ll review and contact you with next steps!
