How Virtual Design Works | Our Process

Along with everything included below, you can also expect prompt communication, and for me to keep you updated every step of the way. This is a truly collaborative process, and my biggest goal is for you to have a home that is meaningful to you!

№1

Checkout

Completing the Checkout & Payment is required to start the Discovery Phase of our collaboration. Each services page features a button to purchase that package. If you have a question about whether the package is the right fit for what you’re looking for, you can always contact me and I’ll get back to you ASAP (we can also create custom packages.). 

After clicking on the button to purchase a package, you will be brought to your cart, and you’ll be able to checkout from there with PayPal or a credit card.  You will be asked to read and sign our Design Agreement for your chosen package during the checkout process. After signing, you’ll automatically be redirected to the Payment Portal.

After you checkout, you’ll be sent an email with your receipt, a Virtual Design Guide PDF, and also a link to complete the Design Questionnaire. I’ll manually email you the details to login to your Design Portal within the next business day.

During the Checkout Phase:

  • confirm that a package is the right fit for your project before checking out.
  • begin the Checkout Process by clicking on the button on the page for the service package.
  • read and sign your Design Agreement
  • enter Payment information in our secure Payment Portal
  • receive emails with receipt, Virtual Design Guide PDF, and link to Design Questionnaire.
  • receive email from me with details to login to your Design Portal.

During the Discovery Phase:

  • you’ll learn your way around the Design Portal.
  • fill out the Design Questionnaire.
  • get set up with a Private Pinterest Board
  • I’ll begin to enter elements into the Design Portal and the Pinterest Board
  • you can give feedback right on the Board that helps me narrow down your style and how you’ll use the room.
  • you’ll receive your Initial Mood Board. We can still make changes from here!

Discovery

During the Discovery Phase, I get a feel for your design style and what you’re looking for in both the functionality and aesthetic of your space. The length of this phase is designed to be about a week with prompt feedback on your end.
 
You will be able to login to your private and password protected Design Portal. This is a dashboard that organizes all of the project materials and our communications. 
Your first step is to complete your Design Questionnaire. Once I receive your responses, I’ll add the information to the Design Portal and you can begin to watch the process take shape. 
 
I’ll also get you set up on your Private Pinterest Board. This is a place we can collaborate on ideas for your project. This is a crucial step for me understanding your taste and you making sure I am heading in the right direction! 
 
The Discovery Phase concludes when I upload your Initial Mood Board to the Design Portal. This is to make sure we are on the same page with the design concept. You can consider this a “rough draft”, we can still make changes from here!

Design

During the Design Phase, I get to work on your Final Design Package. The content and length of time will vary according to which package you choose, but some examples of what I’ll be working on include: 3D renders (Signature Virtual Design only), Shopping List, Lighting Analysis (Paint Color Consult Only), Floorplans, Setup Instructions, and compiling samples (DesignBox Only). 
 
Throughout the process I’ll stay in touch and we can ask each other questions through your Design Portal. You can also watch my progress through the checkboxes in the portal! 
 
After all of the items in your package are complete, I will send you your Final Design  Package. One round of revision is included if needed to make sure your final virtual design is perfect for you!

During the Design Phase:

  • I get to work! This phase is all about me bringing together the pieces of your Design Package.
  • we can communicate through the Design Portal, and you can watch the progress boxes to see that your design is staying on track.
  • after everything is complete, I’ll send you your Final Design Package!
  • one round of revision is included (if needed) so we can get it completely perfect.

Implementation (You)

This phase happens on your timeline, but I’ll answer questions and provide an alternative source for out of stock items from the Final Design up to 30 days after through your Design Portal. After 30 days, your Design Portal is archived and our collaboration is complete! 

Overall, my goal is for this to be a fun, easy, and streamlined way for you to create a meaningful space!
