Our design process is rooted in transparency and mutual trust. We provide each client with a creative and collaborative experience that centers their distinct narrative and how it translates to their life at home.
What we offer our clients goes far beyond traditional design packages. Our job is to develop an authentic understanding of your lifestyle and aspirations and relay that into a home that truly resonates. We believe that your space should be as original as you are—a timeless reflection of how you spend your days. Our clients know that living well is an art form that requires form and function, and that's where we come in.
Over time, we have cultivated an intimate and seamless design process, founded in empathy, intentionality, and intuitive listening. We channel our expertise, creative vision, and experience to guide our clients to their best, most joyful life at home.
Meet & Greet
We begin each project with an in-person consultation or phone call to speak at length about your home and how you would like to live in it. We will follow up with an on-site meeting to walk through and lay the foundation for the creative and functional direction of our design. We will discuss space planning, budget, timelines, and any existing parameters. We will also take this time to share more about our client process and what you can expect at each step. Most importantly, we will explain our Design Concept Presentation—our comprehensive and detailed plan for executing your project—and how it will serve as our roadmap to your ideal home.
We will take what we learned about your story, style, and everyday life and translate that raw information into a Design Concept Proposal. This thorough presentation will provide an incredibly detailed overview of your project, including what to expect in terms of cost and how the phases will unfold. Transparency is a core value at LPD and this proposal ensures that our goals and expectations are aligned from the beginning of our work together.
The next phase is when our design plan truly begins to take tangible shape. We spend, on average, 5-6 weeks researching, drafting layouts, reviewing architectural drawings, measuring spaces, collecting samples, selecting materials, creating full-color illustrations, and crafting an extensive presentation that houses it all. This document will outline every detail of your project, down to the last cabinet handle. We will present this package along with tactile samples during our meeting.
Once our design proposal is approved, we turn our focus to the practical details of a creative concept. We set in motion a cloud-based tool that is our central hub for every decision, including budget spreadsheets, material specs, contractor instructions, timelines, invoices, and meeting schedules. We will make frequent site visits throughout construction to ensure our shared vision is being executed with quality and care. Meanwhile, we will begin sourcing the furnishings that will complete your space. When any structural work is done, we install furnishings and style every detail. Before turning over the keys, we will follow-up with all parties to cross off any lingering items and have your home photographed for our portfolio.
