How do you define your vision? 

For us, this question is the first one we ask at the beginning of any design process – whether it is an event, a room, or a whole home. Figuring out what you want to feel when you experience it is the first step to defining that vision. We ask that question first when we meet with any of our clients to ensure that we align during our consultation process and have a grounding piece during our design curation. We want to make sure that whatever space we transform matches the vibe that our client is trying to achieve. 

What about if you don’t know your vision or how you want to feel? That’s ok – let us help you! The easiest way to navigate this is to grab a comfy blanket, quiet space, fun cocktail and get searching. Start a board whether it is on Pinterest or Houzz. From there, you have a collection of photos that are starting to look cohesive (maybe?) and you will be able to identify the big ideas that make up your vision. 

 Or maybe, your photos and choices are all over the place – That’s ok! We are here to help. We know what questions to ask, where to start, and how to navigate when a client is just frankly unsure. 

Our design process, whether it is for a wedding, event, or interiors, begins and ends with our clients vision. This feeling that is evoked from guests at your event, or guests in your home, are the beginning of foundational pieces to life long memories that will be created time and time again. And, we are so happy that we have been welcomed into that journey!
