Each project is as individual as each of my clients. The initial process begins with taking time to meet with you to understand you – interests, needs, desires, and environment. I will then take the opportunity to physically walk your home to get a feel for the area, the lighting and the space.
This initial interview, or programming meeting, as I like to call it, provides an outline of your needs. Ultimately, our conversation identifies your environment’s ‘hot buttons’ and that, along with your input, creates the muse for the project.
Identifying that one magical word or thought allows me to identify the direction and sparks the beginning of an inspired process and outcome.
Of course the practical items aren’t left off. When I leave your home, I have an understanding of your space, how it is used and how it will be lived in. With these relevant aspects taken into consideration, the final outcome is a true reflection of you, as I strongly feel it should be.
I take a hands on approach and am personally involved in measuring each space to insure that I understand and know every ‘inch’ of the area. This provides me the ability to mentally walk through the house, even when I am off site, and visualize what should be done. By measuring, it allows me to ‘feel’ the space.
