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.
