DESIGN HOW TO: Our process

Our full-service design process is a clearly defined, multi-step process that starts with our initial meeting and ends with the installation and finishing touches of your finished project. But there’s lots of work to do in between, when we will work to discover your unique style and preferences, pay careful attention to your needs and take note of all aspects of your home and physical space. We then work to create a plan that is functionally excellent, visually beautiful, and even better, looks and feels like “YOU”!

If you’ve ever wondered how it works, read along for the steps of our process:

Drop by our 4,000 square foot showroom and studio on Fort Mill’s quaint, historic Main Street, where we can discuss your project to see if we are a good fit for you.
Hint: if you’re not a great parallel parker, check out the parking lot behind our Main Street building. But feel free to come in either from either side!

Browse our downstairs showroom with twelve unique, beautifully styled rooms with chairs and sofas to provide dozens of seating options for you to see, sit in and test.
Say “Hello” if we’re in our upstairs studio, where we’ll proabably be working on our projects with thousands of fabric, rug and finish samples at our fingertips.
We’ll meet with you at your home, new construction site or our studio to discuss your goals, needs and preferences and gather all information needed to begin our design process. 

We’ll head back to the studio to begin the development of your project’s look and feel. We use your own preferences and brainstorm with colors, textiles, art and more before moving to the next step.
We then work to design scaled floor plans and layout options for each room to create seamless, flowing interiors that provide spaces that perform as needed, paying careful attention to your unique needs.
With exact space requirements completed, and the room’s look determined, we get specific and select all furnishings and other items according to our plan and your budget.

We’ll meet with you back at our studio, where we will present your total plan. We will make any revisions to the plan and fabric and product selections if needed.
When you are ready to proceed, we will order, manage, receive and inspect all items, keeping you updated along the way. We also schedule and coordinate all deliveries.

Finally, our favorite part! We will install your rugs, furnishings, art and custom draperies, and will finish your room with accessories and lighting as needed. We love a dramatic before and after, and so will you!
