Our Philosophy & PROCESS
At The Drawing Room, we are passionate about transforming interior spaces to create rooms that exude personality, vibrance and joy. We provide interior design, space planning, color consultation and art consultation services for an array of new construction and renovation projects. Custom residential interior design is our specialty.
We work extremely close with each of our clients, helping to create the initial conception of a design project to it’s final actualization and implementation. This means working very closely with our clients along every step of the way and working closely with contractors, architects, and hired installers to ensure that every job is carefully monitored and executed.
When beginning any project, we meet with our prospective clients at their homes to review the space(s) to discuss needs, desires, potential ideas and areas requiring problem-solving, for each room. After our initial consultation, we draw up an individualized plan for our client from the information gathered and discussed during our first meeting. After this initial meeting is when we also provide you with questionnaires to be filled out by you. It is within this initial process that we are able to delve deeper into understanding your personal aesthetic, values, and style, and gain a better sense of what design elements and concepts might best highlight your lifestyle and personal taste and best fit your budget. Communication is extremely important to us, and the more we understand our clients, the better we are able to help them achieve a space that brings them joy and happiness in their newly designed home.
After this point, we are typically well on our way to the next steps which include composing new layout options for each space, reviewing potential concepts and discussing each potential phase of development for each room. This includes selecting specific furniture, lighting, accessory, artwork, and textile options to fit your needs.
There’s nothing that brings us greater joy than providing our high attention to detail and helping you design (or redesign) and style your home in a way that feels fresh, sophisticated and expressive in color, texture and form. We look forward to working with you, and helping you achieve your dream home!
