Initial Design Meeting

This is the essential first step in defining any new project.
Whether you have a Lived-In Space, Renovation or New Construction, we start with this meeting of the minds.  More than just an introduction, this collaboration is a design dialogue of ideas so Mindy can understand what you want to accomplish.  We ask you to prepare a list of questions, by room, to organize your thoughts.  This will keep us on track + make for a productive first meeting.

Here are some examples of what can be accomplished during the Initial Design Meeting.

Rough Sketches of Furniture Placement                                                                                                   

An important outcome of the Initial Design Meeting is to realistically discuss the:                                        Scope of Work, Time Frame, Budgets + Next Steps.
