This may vary according to client and the scope of the project(s). However typically it begins as a fact-finding mission. I need to understand what you are looking to accomplish in your home as a whole and also room by room. Do you want to work only with what you have or would you like to replace some furnishings with new pieces? Are you looking to update any permanent features to the room? It’s also important to know from the beginning the scope of your anticipated goals so that tasks are prioritized and handled in the appropriate logical order. It’s also the time to get an understanding of your color and style preferences. This is an interactive time and I am happy to share any ideas or thoughts I may have to help you from this point on also. This is when our organized and prioritized list of goals comes together. If time permits and there are small tasks we can move forward on, such as color consultations, or rearranging any furniture or accessories I am happy to do so.
