What’s your interior design process?

OUR PROCESS

Getting to Know You
I will get to know you and your design preferences for colors, aesthetic, goals and needs. I will take a lot of photos, ask a lot of questions and have a lot of correspondence. We meet over Zoom (for Covid safety or remote design consultation), talk on the phone and trade emails to get to know you and learn about your lifestyle and how you need the space to function. Getting on the same page is critical to maintaining good communication throughout any project. I will draw up a contract with pricing for the client. There are a few ways to address their design needs.

Concept Design
Once I understand your goals, I develop overall design concepts, space plans, and budget estimates to lay the groundwork for the fun design work ahead.

Design Development
This is when our creativity goes to work. We finalize floor plans; determine finishes, lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures, appliances; and select fabric, furniture that best fit within your taste, timeline and budget. These could be retail or custom orders, depending on correspondences.
Once I have a good idea of what we need, another Zoom meeting is set up. Usually I will go through a slideshow of the pieces/rooms to give the client a sense of the design.

Specification and Procurement
The wheels are in full-motion: we start purchasing and gathering the furnishings to transform your space. A 50% deposit is collected (if needed for custom pieces) or a list of retail items with coordinating links are sent to the client for them to order pieces at their convenience. The items can be shipped directly to the client or properly stored until it’s time for installation.


Installation
The best part of the journey. Our team oversees the delivery of goods, ensuring a smooth process from start to finish. This phase often also includes accessorizing and art sourcing adding that finishing touch.

Which interior design styles can you cater for?

Tip Top welcomes all interior design and styling inquiries. Tip Top Design bills on a time and materials basis sending invoices monthly for services. A deposit and a signed contract are required to begin work.

What do you love most about your job?

The design process is fun! I enjoy creating spaces for my clients to love for years to come.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I was real estate since graduating from college, but wanted to give myself and edge. The 2009 real estate crash gave me this opportunity. So i put my real estate career on pause and went back to school for interior design. I worked for Restoration Hardware as a designer for two years before branching out on my own. !returned to real estate in 2013 with new invigorated sense of the business. i now offer my real estate clients deign consultations. In 2019 i partnered with Emily Vesely Designs, a fabulous staging and design consultant. We have been helping clients with design and staging consultations, as well as real estate purchasing ever since.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

Yes, most of my clients have been remote, especially since the Covid pandemic. All consultations can be done via Zoom.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

The health and safety of my clients and myself are of paramount importance. Zoom and technology are our friends. They have helped me adapt with a new approach to design. All consultations are on Zoom. If we need to have a face-to-face meeting masks and social distancing Covid guidelines are observed.

Residential Interior Designers FAQs

Your expert Interior Designer will be able to advise you on the full range of services available and will be able to help you select the best services for your home. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a professional Interior Designer today.

Firstly, it is important to have an idea of what you like and don’t like. This is a really useful starting point for what styles will work for you which will be used by the Interior Designer to formulate some suitable concepts.

There are a number of ways which will help you decide your favourite styles such as:

  • Magazines – It is a good idea to browse through interior design magazines such as Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, Galerie Magazine and Veranda.

  • Social media – Have a look at their social media platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest which will give you a good idea of their style and moreover will showcase their portfolios.

  • Local media – Take a look at their websites and see if you can find any local press coverage on any projects they have undertaken.

  • Visits – Try and visit art galleries, antique shops or fashion boutiques to get a sense of what styles you like.

Personality fit - You want to make sure there is a good personality fit with your Interior Designer. Projects can go on for months or even years.

Client involvement - Some designers prefer consulting with a client every step of the process whereas others prefer full creative control so you want to know ahead of time what to expect. As a client, you should know how you like to work and how much involvement you expect from the start.

Inspiration - If you ask questions about their favourite projects you can get a peek into how he or she navigates the creative process.

Communication - Ask detailed questions about the firm’s strengths and weaknesses which will help you determine whether or not it is the right match for your project and timeline.

Project management style - Be sure to ask your designer how they will communicate their vision in a way that you can easily digest. Some Interior Designers manage the entire process from the design phase, through the procurement phase and the final installation. Every designer handles project management differently so it is important to have a firm and clear grasp of how your designer’s process works.

Design risks – Sometimes the initial design presentation may not be what you are looking for. The key is to be open-minded, prepare yourself for some design risks and be honest with how you are feeling. The designs should speak to you as you will have to live with them.

Past clients - It is a good idea to ask about previous projects to understand how crises are dealt with and how the designer has factored in preventative measures.

Budget - It is important to talk about budgets beforehand rather than in the middle of a project which can make a world of difference in terms of avoiding unnecessary conflict. It is worth getting a few quotations from different Interior Designers before deciding on a specific style.

You should look for a degree, foundation degree or HND in relevant subjects such as architecture, fine art, furniture design, interior and spatial design, interior architecture, textile design and 3D design.

Before you choose an Interior Designer, you could ask to see examples of their work, read testimonials and view before and after pictures of rooms and homes they have designed.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark and check out reviews from past customers too as well as examples of work that they have completed. This might also help you get some ideas for the types of design you need.

Interior designers cover a number of different aspects. They prepare detailed plans for the space showing the colour scheme, materials, lighting and soft furnishings they recommend. They also provide clients with detailed drawings, mood boards and scale models if required. Some designers will create interactive digital presentations to show you their designs. They will also show you samples of the materials that they recommend for your home.

Yes, you can. An online interior designer will ask you questions about your budget and preferences, and then they will design a 'virtual' room, filling it with real furniture you can purchase - pretty neat stuff!
