After our first phone call I will forward the New Client Design Questionnaire to be completed by you.
This is the time to get to know each other and have a preliminary discussion about your needs. This portion will take approximately 20-30 minutes. If we decide to work together during the initial interview I will take photos and preliminary measurements.
At this time I will need a signed Interior Design Agreement, a signed FAQ’s & Policies, and the initial non-refundable advance. We’ll get into the nitty-gritty of what you need, what you want, and what you are looking to achieve in your space. I will obtain architectural plans of your space if available, take measurements, and a complete set of photos for my records.
With the information gathered I’ll start to formulate a design plan keeping your budget in mind. This includes detailed conceptual interior drawings, or analysis of floor plans, shopping for finishes, pieces and options and for your home. I will contact vendors as necessary, to receive quotes. I will be collecting hard finishes, fabric samples and tear sheets. This phase takes approximately 3-6 weeks. At the end of this phase I will present my design plan to you.
ACQUISITION & CONSTRUCTION PHASE:
During this time, orders will be placed, stock will be checked and reserved, and items will start arriving in your storage. There will also be continued shopping and selection in this phase for secondary items like accessories, lamps, and smaller pieces. Anything that was not approved or selected in the Design Phase will be secured in this phase. This is the time that any construction or remodeling occurs and hard finishes will go in. Depending on the scope and scale of the project as well as if items are in stock and if decisions and payments were made quickly in this phase takes anywhere from 2 months to 2 years.
Once everything arrives, it is time for installation. Any window coverings or lighting that was not installed in the previous phase will be installed at this time. The storage facility will bring all your items and staff from Pamela Day Designs will be on hand to place and style everything. Art will be hung, bookshelves styled, light bulbs installed. Final touches are made, additional items will be secured, and final photos will be taken. We like to stay until the last candle is lit and make sure that your space is perfect.
