How do you work? What is the process?
We find inspiration. At our first meeting we seek information from you to help define your
style, needs, and wants in the context of your budget. Do you imagine a cozy retreat or a place to highlight a personal collection of objects or art? Do you prefer a space with color and pattern or one that is more streamlined, neutral, and modern? We always consider the history and architecture of the space.
We explain the process. In the initial meeting, I explain how the project will proceed in the
design scheme and design development phases, and then the process of design implementation. We also discuss the trade professionals we will need for your project.
We pull together and present the elements for the design. Our goal is to look for that “wow” moment when we unveil our ideas for your project. Then we build on that.
We communicate and stay organized. We believe that close communication with clients and staying organized are key to a successful project.
We implement the design and solve problems when they arise. We want the final result to be stunning and deeply functional.
We stay in touch. We love to hear how our clients are enjoying their homes after the project is
What is the fee structure?
All fees are based on the type and size of the project.
How long will my project take?
It depends on size and scope, and at present, the availability of materials, items, and contractors. I’ll be able to give you a sense of the timeline once we’ve defined the details of the project.
Where do you source furnishings?
I’m known for finding the most interesting pieces and the short answer is: Everywhere. From The Boston Design Center and other trade sources to retail stores and, very often—antique dealers and boutique stores.
Can you help me bring in a team of contractors and other trades?
I have a trusted team of contractors and other tradespeople that I can introduce to you.
Should we do everything at once? How will we know what to prioritize?
It’s very normal to feel overwhelmed by home projects, and scope is one of the first things we discuss in the initial client meeting. It also depends on the budget. Often clients want to add on to the scope, and then we do a reset for the budget and timeline. Every decision is made knowing that we like to stay calm and minimize drama.
How often do you communicate with me throughout the project?
We have ongoing communication during both the design and implementation phases to make sure you feel very happy with your selections, understand what has been ordered and when you can expect it to arrive.
Does LW Interiors have a minimum project size?
I’m always more focused on the people I’m working with and the type of project than the size. I have a special interest in projects with unique architectural and historic features but, in the end, it’s about relationships and creating something unique.
