Taking a holistic design approach, we infuse your tastes and lifestyle into the function of the home. It is vital that a home be representative of you and so we make every effort to build a relationship with you in order to understand who you are and how you want your home to support you.
Home is where we do our best living—and dreaming. IT IS TRUTH AND OUR SAFE PLACE.
We believe home should demonstrate comfort and be a reflection of the people who live in it.
For homeowners who have decided to embark on the remodel journey solo but don’t know where to start, a design consult may be the answer. This is a standalone service to provide actionable advice (verbal solutions only) to help you develop the vision for your home. Available for 1-hour virtual or 2-hour in-person sessions.
We introduce new solutions that address your design challenges. You'll receive guidance on establishing a mood, space planning, color consulting, finish selections, organization and support. We can suggest recommended suppliers and products.
The consult fee will be credited towards your design project should you decide to use The Bungalow Cottage to transform your space.
Chat with us about your dream home. Whether you are a first-time home buyer, busy family with no time to make your home feel tailored, or making space for additions to the family, we can help.
Let's Get Started
Ready to begin creating a home that brings out the best in you?
With any design project, there is a big investment in time from both parties. Depending on your design needs, we will be working very closely with one another and building a long-term relationship. As the designer, it's my job to get to know who you are. Complete our Design Inquiry Form where you can introduce yourself and briefly tell us about your design project. We send you our Investment Guide to familiarize yourself with our services, process, pricing and expectations.
Days prior to the consult, we ask you to complete an in-depth Design Questionnaire, and we send you a link to a Pinterest board equipped with sections for each room; specific to your project scope. During a 1-hour virtual meeting for e-design or a 2-hour in-person meeting for locals, your submissions help us define the goals and objectives for the project. With it, we explore how you want your environment to support you. All decision makers should be present at this time. Our Design Contract will follow. Once signed and the retainer received, we move to the next phase in the process.
We take measurements of all rooms involved. This can take a full day, depending on the square footage. We explore several design schemes that propose different space plans, furniture layouts, and color schemes. We also choose preliminary materials and finishes. This phase in the design process can take up to several weeks to produce; depending on the project scope. In the end, we pull it all together to prepare for our initial presentation where we go over each design idea and narrow down any options. If you have revisions, we take these into consideration and make any necessary changes. Throughout the progress of the project we continue to review your preferences to ensure we are always meeting your goals.
We get specific and narrow down our options to one design scheme. Any revisions you have made will be represented here. We liaise with other consultants, if necessary, to develop detailed room elevations, plans and layouts and incorporate specifications for materials, fixtures, appliances, and any relevant code information into the project. Every detail is considered. We meet with trades and suppliers/manufacturers and include their recommendations in the design. We source the exact furniture, paint colors, artwork and all decorative items to provide samples when preparing for our next presentation.
Once the final designs are approved, we begin sourcing and ordering items. If you have requested bespoke/custom items, this may take time to manufacture and deliver. In the meantime, we schedule and coordinate any trade work required. If light construction is necessary, we make regular visits to the site to observe the work being carried out by your contractor and answer any questions that may arise. As items ship, our receiving warehouse will inspect them for damages and store them safely and securely until they are ready for installation.
You made it! The journey is over. Install day is here. This is the most exciting phase in the process. The moment you get to see all of the elements come together. The endless months or years of waiting are now over. You finally get to experience your new space. We deliver all furniture and decor to your home and supervise the installation, ensuring everything has been installed as specified. The day after installation is complete, we’ll schedule a photo shoot for our professional photographer to document our work in your space. We love sharing those final images with you to highlight the transformation that you and your home have gone through. All invoices, warranty information, cleaning and care guides are packaged up conveniently into a final goodbye packet.
