our interior design process

discovery call:

let’s schedule a phone call and say hello!

Your discovery call with Darci is the first step in creating a home that is reflective of who you are (or wish to be) and elevates you towards living your best life. During this brief conversation you get to share an overview of your design dreams and desires, and we get to share a bit about the dhny design process and determine whether our detailed design services are a good fit for you and your project.

initial client meeting:

ready to get started? let’s meet…virtually!

After determining we are a good fit during our Discover Call, we schedule a Zoom meeting with you for a more collaborative client and designer interview. Together, we dive in and dig deep to learn more about your desired design direction, expectations, detailed likes and dislikes. We form our Scope of Work – an outline of the services dhny will perform for you and your project – and provide you with a framework of next steps and how we move forward.

site measure and planning day:

trade day and project kick-off.

upon receiving a signed letter of agreement and retainer from you we hit the ground running. we begin by measuring and photographing your space and documenting any furnishings or artwork that you would like to see incorporated into the design plan and we meet with any trades that we need to bid on work like the general contractor, window treatments workroom, custom millworker, electrician, wall paper installer etc.

preliminary design:

planning the magic!

Armed with all of the information gathered during our site measure and planning day, you can get back to focusing on living your big life as we begin focusing on all of the intricacies of your project. drawing up initial plans, pulling together all of the architectural finishes, color schemes, window treatments, fabrics or decorative furnishings and fine-tuning all of the curated components of your design concept will keep us busy for 4-6 weeks.
