Our process: At the initial consultation, we become familiar with your ideas and determine what is best for the space. Our design fee is determined according the scope of the project. Do you need to add a few key elements for your space for it to function and look better? Do you need guidance on what size chair, sofa, artwork or lighting to buy? Are you in need of a complete redo? We can also help solve your decorating dilemmas by suggesting painters, upholstery services, or just about any service to revitalize your home.
It is very helpful if you gather certain information prior to the consultation. Make a notebook of your ideas and needs. Include magazine clippings that interest you: the color, furniture, fabric or style. Carefully consider your lifestyle and budget. W2WHC will assist you in developing a realistic budget around a master plan, setting both short-term goals and developing long range plans that will ensure that the finished project is part of a well-coordinated design.
W2WHC will then provide a proposal letter that clearly defines the scope of work to be done and the time it will take to complete the tasks. Upon signing the letter, work can begin. A 50% retainer is collected at the start of the project, with the balance due upon completion.
SPACE PLANNING:Let us help you decide on the best layout for the interior of your home. We can be useful in creating the most workable and efficient use of your space, keeping in mind your lifestyle and need for additional furniture and storage.
FLOOR PLAN AND 3-D DRAWINGS:Having W2WHC measure your space and draw it to scale will help you to visualize the new layout and understand what size furniture you need and where it should be located in the room. 3-D renderings are also available.
FURNITURE AND FABRIC SELECTION:The possibilities for home décor items are endless and can, quite often, overwhelm our clients. We can eliminate the guesswork for you. Comfort, style and scale are our main considerations when choosing furniture for our clients. We can narrow down your choices and communicate the scheme in a visual way in order to help you avoid costly mistakes.
NEW CONSTRUCTION SELECTIONS:We offer a selections service to assist you during the construction of your new custom home. Our experience and design talent will help you achieve the home of your dreams with a focus on aesthetic appeal, timeliness and value. Selection services offered include flooring, finishes, tiling, plumbing fixtures, lighting, cabinetry, countertops, cabinet hardware and paint/stain selections.
PAINT COLOR SELECTION:Nothing transforms a room like color. W2WHC will create a special color palette just for your space. We can specify color for one room or an entire home.
PERSONAL SHOPPING:Many clients do not have the time nor desire to shop for home accessories. We can locate those items, always keeping quality and price in mind. Let us do the legwork for you to source those very important finishing touches.
ARTWORK CONSULTATION:Need that one perfect painting or print to finish the space? Not sure how to display prized collections or existing artwork to its advantage? We can de-mystify the process for you. We also specialize in creating custom “family gallery walls” for clients.
THE BUYER’S EYE CONSULTATION:This is a home walk-through from a buyer’s perspective. You only get one chance to make a first impression. We provide you with a comprehensive report suggesting enhancements, such as what to freshen up, remove, clean and repair, that will help to broaden the appeal of your home to buyers, maximize your financial return, and reduce time on the market. Please contact us for scheduling and pricing.
DISTANCE DESIGN: W2WHC offers services to those clients who are interested in working with us but are not in the CT area. Once we are hired to conceptualize a Distance Design, we work closely with you, the client, to determine design objectives and deliverables.
Upon delivery of your tailor-made plan, you may work on the project at your own pace and budget. A comprehensive Distance Design package includes a scaled floor plan, furniture board, cards detailing furniture, fabric and paint specified and a shopping list. Everything you need to pull together a beautiful room!
