This is probably the most crucial step to beginning any home or office design project. We like to treat it as a celebration and bring artisan, salted fennel caramels sprinkled in 24K gold from chocolatier Vivere Chocolates and a bottle of champagne. Here's to a long-lasting and positive relationship with AARON B DUKE. Congratulations!
We are delighted to begin working with you! We are so very grateful that you have entrusted the vision of your dream home to us. This is a wonderful experience for you. What a great honor and pleasure it is to walk you through this process. We assure you, you are in good hands.
The initial design study will include a two-hour consultation ($500). We begin with a detailed questionnaire to gather pertinent information to clarify who the main contact(s) and decision maker(s) will be, the scope of your project and the direction of the design.
We want to understand what is important to you and how to make your home blend perfectly with your lifestyle. Be honest. Tell us your wishes, wants, and desires. Let us know what you love about each room, but don’t be afraid to share your dislikes, as well. How do you use each space or how do you imagine using each space. Is there a color you absolutely love or one you detest – tell us. What type of design styles do you like? Is there a favorite vacation destination that you would like us to evoke that look or feeling? Maybe you feel comfortable talking about fashion. Tell us the designers or looks you really like. We can translate that into a design.
We want to tell your story and make sure you are surrounded with things you love.
If you have architectural plans available, we will need you to provide those to use. Perhaps you do not. Don’t worry. We can create them for you. If you have a contractor or other tradespeople you would like us to work with, we are more than willing to collaborate with them on your home. In addition, we have relationships with many contractors and tradespeople who are the best in their fields of expertise that we are more than happy to refer to you.
This is just the beginning. We will schedule a meeting in a few weeks to review your preliminary design concept ideas and develop the foundation for your formal interior design concept.
