Full-Service Interior Design for Your Home
At Gem and Clay, full-service interior design means we are hired to fully manage the design and execution of your interior project, from the beginning to the point where you are walking through the door in awe. We value good design and efficiency, so our well-defined process allows us to be creative while providing the crucial structure to be able to successfully transform your home into something you love. We are very transparent with our process, always making sure you know what is happening and when. This is true, even before you become a client. Before we begin a project, there are a few things that happen:
Interior design is an investment, and entrusting your home environment to someone is a big deal. This is why we have an in-depth identification process that allows us both to get to know each other and decide whether we are the right design firm for you. This process to Identify begins on our first phone call. We want to get to know you and your project, and we also want you to know us, and our process. If it’s sounding like the type of project that would be good for our full design services, we will schedule a site visit.
At our site visit we will come out to your home and you can walk us through your space and we gather all of the information necessary to prepare a proper proposal for you. This usually lasts no more than an hour.
If it is looking like we would be a good fit, we go ahead and create a proposal for you. Our proposals will clearly outline the scope of your project, our process, frequently asked questions, pricing and agreements.
Proposal Presentation & Project Sign-Off
Since we will be spending a lot of time together, we want to make sure everyone starts on the same page. That means after we create the proposal, we get together one more time to go through it and we can answer any remaining questions before we get started. This is a fun and exciting, yet productive meeting where we can dream a little, plan a little and start something really cool.
