5-Step Design Process

Step 1:  Introduction

The first step involves exploring this website to learn about Interiors by Fawn.  Once that's done, we schedule a 20-minute phone call to discuss your project and what you'd like to accomplish.


Step 2:  Information

You complete and return a new project packet.  I send additional information about Interiors by Fawn, including a design services agreement for your review and signature.


Step 3:  Initial Meeting

During this complimentary consultation at your project site, we imagine what your space can be. I carefully listen to your needs, desires, and style, and discuss options and budgets.  If you haven't already, you'll sign a design services agreement and we'll look at samples of products for your project based on your preferences and the information you've provided.

Step 4:  Inspiration

Using the most updated information about designs, materials, and products, I design and produce 3 options rendered in 3-D perspectives and schematic floor plans.  I refine the details that make your space perfect for you.  After we meet and review the options, we define the final design for your new, improved space.

Step 5:  Implementation

We order the components that bring your project to life, like tile, cabinets, flooring, paint, lighting, and appliances.  As your project develops, I coordinate completion with you and the contractor to keep your project on track and amazing.


Interiors by Fawn utilizes 3 pricing components:

Project Retainer:  This amount is based on the scope of your project.  Kitchens, master bathrooms, and spaces involving structural changes typically require $1800.00 paid in full when the design agreement is signed.  This provides up to 16 hours of design services as described in the 5-Step Process.  Retainers for other spaces are determined on a case-by-case basis depending on the project goals and scope.  The hourly fee for services that extend beyond the hours provided by the retainer fee is $120, with a 10% discount applied to packages of 10 hours or more.

Design Consultation:  Sometimes you just want advice and selections for a small project.  You may need to finesse a current design or want to meet specific accessibility needs.  Design consultation is provided at the rate of $120/hour, for a minimum of 3 hours.  Initial design consultation investments can be applied to a retainer  agreement for that space.  Unutilized additional design hours are refundable.  Travel time is assessed at $20/hour.

Design Discounts:  As a designer, I receive many trade discounts that are unavailable to the public.  I share these discounts with you.  However, if there are situations where memberships or coupons can save you more money, I always pass that opportunity to you.
