When we understand our clients, success follows.
That’s why we spend time getting to know each client. Hearing them talk about their needs and wishes, their ideas and dreams, lets us envision them in the beautiful interiors we’ll soon be designing. Through beautifully crafted custom home furnishings, and refined interior accessories, we create homes that express what our clients care deeply about.
Understanding the client
One recent project involved furnishing a client’s beautiful, but empty, high-rise Dallas condominium. The goal was to deliver her wish to create a new living space that made her feel positive and optimistic as she embarked upon a quest to reinvent herself. The client wasn’t entirely certain about what she wanted, but she sensed a bright fresh contemporary look which also provided a calming sense would be her ideal environment. This was radically different (in terms of style and color) from the interior of her previous home.
The client knew she wanted a look that provided an elegant backdrop for at-home entertainment and allowed her two children – whom she wanted to involve in the design approval process – to feel at home. She, most importantly, wanted a designer in who she could place her trust and know that they understood exactly what environment she wanted to create for herself and family.
The Design Proposal
After our initial consultation, we were tasked with creating a design proposal for the entry, main living area, the dining area and three bedrooms for herself as well as her two children.
When we reconvened with the client, we presented her with the following:
- a two-dimensional floor plan of the rooms with furniture placement;
- a PowerPoint presentation that showed images of all the design pieces for the interior;
- fabric swatches, wood finish strike-offs and hardware metal finishes; and
- back up options for the client to consider.
Ninety-five percent of the plan received instant approval. This enabled our team to begin work quickly and complete the interior within the desired timeframe.
