Design Philosophy & Process
At Blakely Interior Design, we believe that good design is rooted in strong communication. As a relationship-based company, we believe that the first step is listening and understanding your needs and establishing a communication plan that keep all parties in the know throughout the project. Aside from beautiful design, we believe clear communication is the key to a successful project and have set up a design process that ensures it. We also believe in design without surprises – transparency, impeccable integrity, and accountability no matter the size of the project.
Our design process is broken into several phases:
During your initial consultation, we will discuss the style and character of your home, your design tastes, and your likes and dislikes. We will discuss what is working for you and what is not. We’ll review logistical problems, such as tight traffic patterns and furniture placement as well as how the space may not be functioning in its fullest capacity. We’ll give you a lot of ideas, but we’ll also do a lot of listening. At this meeting, we’ll discuss the scope of your project in great detail, including all areas involved in the project as well as your budget to ensure it’s realistic for what you want to accomplish. We encourage you to bring inspiration photos to hone in on your needs, visions, tastes, and expectations.
With the information gathered, we create a customized design proposal for your project.
