For residential interiors, we offer full service residential design in Chicago and surrounding suburbs. We start with a 30 minute discovery call to make sure we are a fit. Then we will come for a site visit, take photos of the space and put together a proposal for you.
We work with contractors, architects and our in-house project manager and CAD designers to help you visualize your design plans, as well as create detailed construction drawings.
Timelines can vary, but for most partial home renovations, you can expect a timeline of 6-9 months from initial concept to final styling. We do not have a set project minimum, but most partial renovations (Primary suite with bath, guest bath, basement, and one other area) usually start in the $400K+ range.
