workplace decorating services

I enjoy working with super cool people from small companies that possess amazing, creative vision.  The not-so-traditional office spaces.  Places that mix loungey areas with the more formal work set-ups.  People who like to have fun and think outside the box.  Companies that care about their culture and the people who make it up.

initial site visit


On-site visit to see the space, understand how many employees there are, how the space is used, and what the culture is like.  Collect thoughts on style and color, and understand how want employees and clients to feel in the space.  I'll bring concept imagery with me, based on our initial phone call, so we can start to identify your likes and dislikes.  

We'll talk about your budget range and timeframe, so i can create a proposal that makes sense.  Within a week of this visit, you'll have that proposal, which'll include the project scope, how we're going to make it happen, special services necessary, the design fee, and the overall cost estimate.


concept design

Color scheme options are created, and a considerable amount of concept imagery and furniture samples are collected, so we can start to narrow down the big idea.  

On-site visit to take tons of pictures, collect detailed measurements, and review and refine the concept options.  We'll narrow down the color scheme, and talk about lighting, furniture and accessory possibilities.  We'll also identify any existing pieces that can be refinished/refreshed/repurposed and come to an agreement on what's gotta go!


design development

A floor plan, electronic design boards that include pics of the items to be purchased, and possibly a 3D model will be created.  A detailed budget for all recommended items, along with expected lead times for each, will be developed.

On-site visit to review the models and boards, and make any necessary adjustments.

A final product list and budget is sent for approval, before orders are placed.



The final implementation schedule will be developed, we'll line up the painters, arrange for furniture assembly, etc., and start sourcing the products!  

installation may be phased, depending on lead times and drop-dead date for occupancy.
