step 1


The initial email you send us or phone call you make to us is a great opportunity for us to learn a bit about your project and what you are hoping to achieve. It is somewhat of an interview process, where you are assessing if we are the right fit for your project, as well as, our assessment of whether your project is right for our design boutique. We pride ourselves on being flexible and working with all design styles, different budget ranges, and different personalities. Of course you are welcome to book a free 20 minute discovery call where we dig a bit deeper into your vision for your project.

Note: Discovery Call up to 20 mins is free

Step 2


Every project begins with The Consultation, which is an in-home consultation for up to 2-hours. During this time we will discuss initial thoughts and ideas, provide feedback and suggestions, and walk-through each room to determine your style and how you live. The goal of the consultation is to establish a scope of work for your project. It is an information filled session where we provide you with our best ideas and expert insights for your project. This is why we ask for a fee to cover the time and expertise we invest in this step. We also take this time to talk about the design process and what to expect when working with us. All of our design advice happens on-site verbally. 

The Consultation Fee is $495 + HST

Please note: The Consultation does not include any physical design work such as re-arranging furniture, styling, etc. All recommendations happen on-site. 

Step 3


Following the Consultation if you would like to initiate the process of working together on your project, our team puts together a ‘Design Fee Estimate Proposal’ based on the scope of work discussed at the in-home consultation. This document details the scope of work for the entire project, our design intent and goals, the estimated design fee, the payment terms, the estimated timeline, and the terms and conditions for your review and approval.


phase 1

kick off meeting, Site assessment & Planning

We officially start your project once we receive the:

(a) Approved Design Fee Estimate Proposal, (b) Signed Agreement, (c) Initial advance on Design Fee. 

During our kick off meeting we will get to know you and your style further. We will also schedule a site assessment which is essential to ensure a successful project outcome. During the site measure and planning phase, we assess and document the conditions of the existing space, take measurements and photographs for reference. For a complete renovation project, you are also welcomed to invite your contractors and trades to this meeting to discuss feasibility of initial concepts and ideas.

phase 2

Design Concept, Research, Sourcing

A full design plan starts to take shape based on the initial concepts we discussed at the consultation, kick off meeting & site assessment. This phase involves a lot of work behind-the-scenes. We develop a design direction for your project, which include detailed drawings, floor plans and sketches, as well as, the selection of all materials, fixtures, furnishings and decor elements. During this step we are happy to work with the trades people you hire to gather quotes and estimates to include in the initial project budget, which is also developed during this phase.

phase 3

client presentation meeting

The Client Presentation is an exciting day. We schedule an in-person meeting to review the details of your custom design plan. This includes all drawings, sketches, colour scheme, digital presentation boards, fabric samples, furniture selections, budget breakdown and estimated timeline. With approval of the design concept and project budget, the balance of the design fee, plus a percentage of the furnishings budget is required to begin Phase 4.

phase 4

Project Coordination

During this phase we will collaborate with your contractors and begin placing your orders with our vendors and suppliers. For complete renovation projects, we are in communication with the contractors and trades you hired to discuss our plan and ensure our design plans are being carried out according to our specifications.

phase 5


Once your home is ready for soft furnishings, we will coordinate the installation of furnishings and decor items on-site to bring the design concept to life. 

There are a lot of moving pieces in any renovation or decorating project, and we are dedicated to ensuring it all comes together for a final reveal.
