Laine Design Café Consultation $125
Design One Services
Consultation to Concept
The Design One Services provides clients with a focused design consultation with Elaine on-site and follow up Laine Design studio work for the project.
The on-site consultation (2 hour) with Elaine starts with a function and design discussion. Options will be explored through dialogue and/or inspiration pictures as well as lifestyle and design preferences. An inventory is taken of the furniture, design elements and space. Discussion and decisions are made on items to incorporate into the new design. The project scope and budget will be identified with clients to ensure the studio work is relevant to the project. Elaine will also take site measurements and photos for the follow up studio work.
Once the on-site information is gathered Elaine will work in the Laine Design studio (6 hours) to create the Project Mood Board for the overall design vision. This mood board will include the project colour palette option, paint recommendations, lighting, flooring, and other elements depending on the project. A Concept Floor Plan will be drawn including the proposed furniture and design features for the space. These will be presented to clients along with the Concept Design Recommendations.
