Our Design Process
We are often asked about how the design process works, from “Should I pick a rug or a paint colour first?” or “How do you figure out if everything will look right together?” or SPACE PLANNING…”How do I place furniture in this room/office, what do I take into account to make it useful as well as beautiful?
Step 1 : Interview and Discovery Phase. The first thing we need to know is who you are, how you live/how the office operates, and what you really desire for this specific space. Our client survey form hones in on these questions. The client’s comments help us visually understand what they are drawn to and what they are hoping to achieve within the space.
Step 2 : Measuring & Taking Photos. We measure the space and take photos of each room. The architectural details are taken into consideration when creating the new design.
Step 3 : Floor Plans. The foundation for a good design is about having an efficient furniture plan with appropriately scaled furniture. Multiple floor plan options are provided to the client.
Step 4 : Creation of Design Concept. Let the fun begin! The colour scheme and overall design concept is created.
Step 5 : Paint, Furniture & Fabric Selection. With a clear design concept we start selecting options to present to the client through the creation of mood- and sample boards.
Step 6 : Quotation. With a clear design concept we do a detailed quotation and/or cost analysis.
Step 7 : Accepting of quotation, Ordering and Installation. Carné Interiors places orders and coordinates any contract work that needs to be done before the furniture is delivered. Walls are painted, light fixtures are installed, and drapes are hung. The project is completed and finishing touches are added such as accessories, paintings, mirrors and personal items.
