What’s your interior design process?

Step 1 - Consultation
We meet with you in your home for a collaborative client and designer interview. In so doing, we are mutually discovering if your project is the right fit for each other. We discuss details such as your goals for the space, your design aesthetic, how you will be using the space, what inspires you, your time-frame for completion, and your anticipated investment.

Should we mutually agree to proceed with the project, we will review the terms of our Letter of Agreement and Retainer fee.

Step 2 - Proposal Outlining Project Scope and Estimated Design Fees
 
We outline the Scope of Work for the entire project, our design intent and goals, the estimated design fee, the, advance on our design fee required to get started, the estimated timeline, and the terms and conditions. The Scope of Work must be approved and initial retainer received to signal the start of the project. Please note that the Scope of Work is not the same as the design plan or design presentation.
 
Step 3 -Site Measure and Planning Day
 
This is where we invite the trades that will be involved in the process for a site visit to discuss the project scope and to take measurements and photos. They will each provide a written estimate outlining their scope of work and the cost for labor and/or materials. These estimates will be presented to you in the Final Presentation Meeting. Depending on the Scope of the project trades will vary.
 
Step 4 – Concept Development
Project design – Starting with the design intent, we further develop the concept through sketches, renderings, elevations, color schemes, fabrics and finishes. Sourcing materials, furnishings, and fixtures. We work closely with our trades people to develop quotes for each scope of work. The initial budget begins to take shape here.

Step 5 - Presentation and Budget Meeting
Inspiration day- We present you with our preliminary design concept for your space. This includes basic drawings, color scheme, mood board, key fabrics, furniture selections and budget estimates including projected costs for any work by our trades and artisans. One revisions (if any) may be requested at this time. The budget is reviewed in detail and revisions to budget can be made at this time.

A Final presentation meeting will be scheduled to go over any revisions requested. This presentation will include working drawings, fabrics, finishes, and the final detailed proposal. The required 75-100% deposit is due prior to purchasing.
 
Step 6 - Procurement and Management
We work, you relax. During this phase we begin the development and construction of your project. Here is where every detail is managed to ensure a successful completion. We collaborate with builders, vendors and fabricators and make site visits as necessary. (Varies by project)

We create all purchase orders, track orders, assess lead times, note any back-orders or discontinued items that may delay the project, and make decisions whether or not to re-select. During this time, we make sure that our projected timeline is adhered to by all vendors.
  
Step 7 – Project Update Review
Our goal is to keep you informed. On larger projects we will meet with you to review any change orders and update you on the progress of the project and any issues that may arise. This step is usually not required for smaller projects
 
Step 8 - Receipt of Orders and Initial Installations
This is where all items ordered are received at our warehouse, inspected for damages, tagged and stored for the installation day. We prefer to install on one day instead of several different deliveries arriving onsite, however, some custom items like window treatments may be installed prior to the final install. The project balance owed is required at this time

Step 9 - Furniture Installation and Styling
This is the big step when items are installed and styled for a beautiful and inspiring finish. Installation is typically done in one- two days. We ensure that all items are delivered to your project all at once instead of several different deliveries. This allows us to minimize disruption to you. However, when agreed certain items may be delivered direct to site.
  
This is the exciting moment when we walk through the finished space and discuss how to care for each piece and any warranties available (if any). There may be outstanding invoices from delivery companies, cleaning service, Etc. which we will present to you at the Client Closure Meeting.

Final Walk Through- This may happen on the same day of the reveal or on a separate day.  Although we strive for perfection, mistakes can happen. The final walk through is where the client gets a chance to point out any deficiencies observed - Items like a small splash of paint on the floor, missing dresser knob, a small rip on a pillow etc. Items that could have easily been missed during the exciting moment of the reveal.

Step 10 - Resolving Deficiencies
 
We coordinate with the trade person, subcontractor, or vendor involved to cure any deficiencies within 14 business days. Thankfully, this step is not needed in most cases, but we make sure that you will be happy with your finished space.
Once all deficiencies are resolved we move forward with closing out the project. The benefit of all warranties transfer to you the client.
At this time, we would love your feedback and may request a review or referral.
 
Step 11 - Professional Photography
Let’s show it off. We will schedule a professional photographer to shoot pictures of the project, which we will also share with you. If we intend to have these pictures published in a local or national publication, we will discuss that with you and determine if you want your name disclosed or not. Photos may be used for Social media purposes by Amberleaf Inc. we will always respect your right to privacy.

Our process ensures that there is little to no mistakes or problems, and very little impact on your family's time and your home. We take care of all the details for you for a turn-key design.

Which interior design styles can you cater for?

As a Designer who has been creating amazing spaces for over 20 years, I find it best to work with Clients to determine their style and work to that.
I was classically trained in Interior Design and Architecture as well as furniture design.
My personal style may be considered a bit more transitional due to the fact that I love mixing Contemporary items with Old world Antiques.

What do you love most about your job?

One of the best parts of my job is being able to create a design that looks seamless and acquired. Giving a home a feeling of evolving over time, and not just making it all look new and store bought.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I have always loved the design process of starting with a blank slate and creating something very personal for my clients.

Why should our clients choose you?

Having worked in the Design Industry over 20 years, I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table, that allows me to bring more expertise to the job. With every project you learn something new and find out what works, and what to avoid. By working with a seasoned professional you can be assured to avoid costly mistakes and save money in the long run.
