Your Guide to Relocating in Style

Moving to Texas…? How exciting!!

You know what they say…everything’s bigger in Texas! So go big, and plan for an awesome new home that’s a perfect fit for YOU!

Once you get the relocation basics down, like finding the perfect house, registering the kids at school and solidifying the movers, it’s time to hire your interior designer and start designing!!

New Construction or Custom?

Whether you’re looking at new construction, or even a significant renovation prior to moving in, try to start this process as early as possible, preferably 1 year in advance. Peruse reputable builders in the area and check out the developments where their homes are readily available. If custom is your wish, discover the perfect lot with your realtor and then team up with what I call the “trifecta” (your architect, interior designer and custom builder) to make that dream home a reality. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of decisions to be made when taking on a new construction project, so let the professionals who do this on a daily basis make your life easier by seamlessly guiding you through the process. And don’t forget to consider temporary living like corporate housing or an Air BNB so that your family is comfortable while waiting for your home to be complete.

The Art of Distinction

If all goes as planned, you’ll have a personal relationship with your designer for many years…even decades! It’s important to choose this person carefully, considering client reviews and referrals from friends. When hiring the perfect designer, consider a like-minded professional that listens to your wishes, understands your objectives and shows you she can execute your plan well. At NAI, we are experts at not only the discovery phase, where we learn all about our customers, but also working within the project to ensure plans are professionally presented, communication is clear, projects are managed on time and on budget, and the client experience is nothing less than amazing! These are what we are known for!

Remote Control

You’re not in Texas yet, but the project is beginning…

Relocation interior design can be a little tricky to navigate, but thanks to Zoom and other fabulous technology, design firms can offer a range of accommodations for out-of-town clients to experience great design services without skipping a beat. Meticulous attention to detail and a wealth of experience handling 100% remote projects are important qualities for your designer to have to understand the nuances of creating spaces that align with your vision, even from a distance. From initial consultations to final touches, your new Texas home should embody your unique style and needs. At NAI, we can curate a whole home’s furnishings within our 11,000 SF design studio, complete with samples at hand for maximum efficiency. And, for new construction or renovations, count on us as your “boots on the ground” to oversee projects and ensure flawless execution while we update you remotely.

Beyond Interior Design

Congratulations, you may arrive in town with little to no scuffs, but you don’t have an established network yet. You need to furnish your home, freshen up the yard and try to work and/or take kids in 5 directions. Hopefully, you’ve hired a designer that’s been in the area for a while and has an established network, well beyond interior design. If so, she cannot only orchestrate all your interior design needs, but likely connect you with other reputable, home-related professionals to offer you solutions to other peripheral needs such as an organizer, a landscaper, a pool maintenance person, a cleaning service…the list goes on! In some cases, like our firm, your designer will act as a concierge and actually set up and manage these services for you! Talk about a time saver!! Our network of vetted tradespeople guarantees quality results, ensuring your project is in reliable hands from start to finish.
