One of our main goals for any project we take on is to thoroughly analyze our clients' needs and create a grand vision for them that will address their lifestyle needs and desires.
Our role is to take our clients on a journey of discovering things that they never even knew they needed and could accomplish with their home.
This is the main reason why we attend national and international furniture markets, and seek out inspiration on a regular basis.
We value new, innovative, forward-thinking ideas, grounded in classic timelessness. We strive for that on every project.
One way we help communicate this grand vision is to use various visualization tools to help bring the vision to life.
We take the big dreams our clients have expressed to us, and find ways to make them all possible.
Sometimes, our clients aren't sure what they want or like, and it is up to us to ask the right questions to successfully uncover, interpret, create and execute their needs and desires
Once we've uncovered the client's needs and create the vision, we set out to work meticulously designing, curating and executing every single detail.
We start with scaled floor plans and furniture layouts, selection of all materials, detailed elevation drawings, curated concept boards, 3D photo realistic renderings, flat lays and material samples.
For most projects, we utilize all these tools.
The Floor Plan
We start with a floor plan with the flooring material layout if necessary. This helps us communicate to the contractors (along with the flooring schedule), what flooring material goes in what room, and of course, helps the client feel assured that installation later will be done correctly.
Then we prepare a floor plan with furniture layout
The floor plan with furniture layout helps us communicate the function and traffic pattern of the space. It is a great way to help our clients understand how many people they can comfortably accommodate in a room.
The lighting plan is essential to communicate with our clients the types of lighting and switches that will be incorporated into the design. Well planned lighting plays a major role in a well designed space.
We use elevations to communicate wall layouts to clients, especially for key design features like cabinetry, fireplaces, art walls, wall paneling and wainscoting.
We love to do the color elevations to showcase the materials and color.
We use concept boards to curate the materials and furniture we have selected for each room. This helps our clients see the pieces together and how they relate to each other.
Flat Lays And Samples
Laying out material samples like tile, stone, wood, textile, leather is a great way to connect with our clients's senses and help them better visualize their new space.
Most clients love the addition of the 3D photorealistic renderings as a tool for communicating our design concepts. Especially those that need every available visual tool that we have.
Although they look pretty realistic, we do have to let our clients know that they don't always 100% capture the lighting, texture and dimension of certain pieces.
Just like every other tool we use, 3D photorealistic renderings are conceptual, and the real life space will look and feel a bit differently.
But they can be very effective in communicating an idea that the client may have trouble visualizing.
One example is the mural bird wallpaper in the ceiling of this master bedroom above. It was much easier showing the client a 3D rendering of the room instead of trying to explain the idea of the mural in the ceiling.
I am so thankful that technology has made it possible to create these resources to help us effectively communicate not just with our clients, but our contractors, artisan and trade partners that we rely on to help us execute our designs.
