Our Interior Design Process
Bringing an interior designer on to a project is like adding a member to your family. Our most important job is coming to understand your vision, your values, and your needs.
Nob Hill Design, a Denver Colorado Interior Design Firm, makes sure your needs are met
every step of the way.
Here’s what the interior design process looks like:
The initial one hour consultation involves Lisa walking through the space and discussing your vision with you. She’ll ask you questions about your lifestyle, your typical use of the space, your entertaining needs, physical considerations, and more. As you can begin to describe your dream space, Lisa begins to get to know you and starts to grasp what kind of space you’d really love.
Do you live in Denver Colorado? This is the Interior Design Firm to work with. Even if you are not in Denver or on the Front Range we can help you.
Project Evaluation & Scope
Based on the initial consultation, Lisa begins drawing up a plan for the space. She determines the scope of the project, according to your desires, and then starts to decide on the particulars. What will need to be changed and what will stay? Will we be changing the flooring or just the furniture? The scope of the project will also take into consideration any budget requirements you’ve already discussed with Lisa.
Floorplans & Space Considerations
Next, Nob Hill Design gets to work making a layout of each room. We begin by thinking about space needs: how will someone move through a space? Will you be entertaining in the space? How big should the furniture pieces be? This process incorporates the next two sections below and usually takes around three weeks to complete.
Colors, Fabrics & Furnishings
Fabrics define the mood of a room. For Lisa, fabric is where the design process begins. It’s pattern, color and texture inspire the space that is to come. The color scheme needs to be something that you love each and every time you walk into the room. Fabrics need to be high quality, they need to last, and they need to create a tactile effect in the room. The color scheme needs to be something that you love each and every time. At this stage, we answer the question, How do you want the room to feel?
With all the designs in place, we begin the final sourcing the materials, furniture and accessories. For each item, we submit product details and photos for your approval. If we have samples of the products, we invite you to see them in person. Everything gets your okay before it is purchased.
With your approvals, we purchase everything for the design in a timely manner.
Construction Assistance, Fabrication of Specialty Items & Design Execution
Nob Hill Design actually plays the role of the orchestra director by determining the overall aesthetic and planning of the space. Once that is accomplished we rely on the experts, the specialists. We will provide a list of contractors for the client to contact to perform any required construction. We let you make your own choice of whom you would like to work with and you contract with them directly. Then we all work together as a team.
Once the space is ready, we arrange for the installation of the furniture, window treatments, and accessories. Paying close attention to detail, we make sure that everything is placed just right to bring a unity and beauty to the entirety.
Before you enter the finished room, we add the little details that make the design spark to life – whether it’s finding the perfect bottle of wine to enjoy in your new kitchen or the right book to place on the nightstand. We walk through the space a number of times making sure that when you enter your new space you’ll experience the magic of perfection.
