- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?For our interior design clients... We have created our design packages in a way that can allow our clients a virtual design plan if they so choose or a full hands-on, in-home designer experience. You choose your level of comfort and involvement. We like to keep things simple and straightforward. Here is how we do it: Step 1: Initial Phone Interview For starters, your designer will consult with you, over the phone, to discuss a few details regarding your project. This consultation is not thorough like the in-home consultation. The call will be limited to twenty minutes. If both the designer and the client feel like the project could be a good match, then you may schedule an in-home consultation if you are within traveling distance of the designer. For clients who wish to try a more virtual design experience, we could schedule a virtual consultation via skype or facetime, whichever method works best for you. For home staging, a brief phone call will allow us to discuss your project needs. Step 2: On-Site Consultation or Virtual Consultation Your initial in-home design consultation, or virtual, will include up to two hours of meeting time. At this appointment, we will discuss your project, your budget, and time-frame as well as review our design process. We have to know what your project entails before we can do anything else to create a plan for your customized space. We want to know everything there is to know about your space and how you intend to use it. These details definitely matter during the design process. You have the option of an in-home consultation or a virtual consultation if you plan on doing a virtual design plan. Step 3: Measurements Every plan begins with good measurements. You have the choice to measure out your own space and create a simple drawing on grid paper to pass dimensions on to your designer. Or, for a small fee, your designer will take precise measurements of all nooks and crannies plus placement of windows, doors, built-in units, etc. Measurements are important to space planning, so we encourage our clients to be precise with their measurements if they choose to measure out their own space. Self-measuring is necessary for virtual design plans. Step 4: Space Plan OR Home Staging Plan A simple space plan will provide you with ideas to create a functional layout of your space. No specified products here, just a conceptual layout of your space. You will receive a floor plan drawing of your space. This option also works well for virtual space plans. If home staging is all you need, we can coordinate your spaces and provide you with a vision board that displays a cohesive furniture plan. We will charge a design fee per square foot of the staged areas. For furnishings, we work with a furniture rental company who delivers and picks up when you need them to. Your designer will coordinate all of the spaces by choosing all pieces. All you have to do is set up your account with the rental company and pay your monthly fee to them. Step 5: Complete Design Concept A complete design concept will show you all of the materials and furnishings that will allow you to create a beautifully coordinated and custom designed space. You will receive a space plan drawing (Step 4) along with a detailed shopping list of all specified items in your design plan, plus a vision board of the design concept to tie it all together. This option allows you a custom design plan with the freedom to tackle any DIY projects that you feel comfortable with. This option also works for virtual design plans. Step 6: Purchasing You have the freedom to take your new complete design concept and finish out your project by yourself and purchase everything from your shopping list. Or, for a small additional fee, your designer can handle the details of purchasing for you. Your designer can coordinate purchase orders and manage shipping details for you. Step 7: Construction Documents/Blueprints (unofficial) Some projects require more detailed drawings. These drawings are useful when projects require the involvement of other specialists, professionals, and contractors. Your designer can create a set of unofficial construction documents that MAY include the following: Demolition plan Floor plan Furniture plan Elevations and sections RCP or reflected ceiling plan Power plan Finish schedules Details Schedules Step 8: Construction Administration If your project requires additional professionals and contractors, this is where they come in. You will need to work with a General Contractor to coordinate and schedule all sub-contractor work and special installations. This part of your budget is separate from design fees and your specified shopping list. Your GC will consider your design plans and help quote prices for installation work of other specialists. Typically, your designer will review the price quote of the install work of the GC to make sure they are still within budget of the overall project. The GC may help you if your project requires some of the following installations: Paint Tile Countertops Cabinetry Trim work and built-in units Plumbing Electrical Construction Windows/doors Flooring Etc. Step 9: Designer Final Installation After the construction has wrapped up and all of your goods have shipped to your site, you have the choice to place everything in your space by yourself with the help of your complete design concept plan. Or, you can have your designer show up and take care of the rest for you if you’d rather sit back, relax, and be surprised at the end. Final installation days with the designer may vary per project. Larger projects will require more installation time. The amount of designer install days will be discussed prior to any agreements so there will be no surprises to you. Your involvement through the design process is completely up to you. Just let us know how we can help you create your new space and we will get started. For our custom furniture builds... This process is also simple and straightforward. We will evaluate your project piece, draw it up, and provide you with a sketch and a price quote. All prices vary depending on your materials and labor time so every quote will be different. No standard pricing for these custom, one-of-a-kind builds.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Jennifer is a product of the accredited Interior Design program at Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design where she graduated with her Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts for Interior Design. She once worked in the commercial design field upon graduation. She then found herself playing an important role in motherhood and took a step back from the corporate world of design. Now, she has ventured out on her own but this time into the more luxurious field of residential design, boutique businesses, and custom furniture design. Jen’s approach to design is to dive into her client’s minds and determine how their personal and professional spaces should function according to their lifestyles. Don’t be surprised if she has to spend some time in your space to get acquainted with it and become one with the space. Jason is the hubby and honorary Design Assistant. In his own respect, he is a woodworker and metal fabricator/welder who is amazing at creating custom pieces for Jen's creative plans. If Jen can dream it, Jason can build it.
