E Design is a way of working with our team without committing to the full design service, this is an affordable alternative and a great option for people living outside of Santa Cruz County. To get started, we will have you fill out a questionnaire and provide us with photos and measurements of the space you would like us to design. After it is approved we will produce a mood board, a space plan (including a rendering) and a shopping list. Here is the step-by-step guide:
You will send us before photos like these:
In addition to a floor plan with dimensions (including window and ceiling height):
Make sure to send us inspiration photos or add us to any Pinterest boards you have started for your space:
We will then have a detailed conversation with you about your hopes and dreams for your space. We will find out things like how the color orange makes you sweat and how you've had a love affair with woven textiles from a specific country. Now is the time to tell us we have to accommodate your grandmother's 16th century Welsh dresser. We really get to know you.
Next we will send you a bid. Please keep in mind that you don’t have to buy the items all at once, and allow a reasonable budget so that we are able to deliver a creative and complete design to you.
Once that bid is signed off, the fun begins and you will receive mood boards like this:
We will include a shopping list and a paint schedule:
And supply drawings for any custom furniture we have designed:
We give you absolutely everything you need to move forward. It is that simple. We will be here along the way if you have any questions or need guidance. We are looking forward to working with you!
