Guide To Understanding The Interior Design Process

Like all design firms, there is a process to get the job done. Taking the mystery out of interior design starts with understanding the process.  The first step is to "do your research"!  Find out what it takes to bring your vision to life.
Make sure you are working with a realistic budget.  Take note of how much things cost, for instance, custom window treatments vs. retail; custom furniture vs. in-stock plus shipping and delivery costs, and the list goes on and on.  Know all the aspects of what it takes to makeover or renovate your space.
