As you have probably seen on HGTV and as designers ourselves, part of the fun and part of the challenge is to be totally committed to listening to a client’s “wants”, “needs” and “wish list” before we design.

An example might be: Same room3 different clients, 3 different purposes.  Our goal through listening is to capture each family’s lifestyle so that the room will “work” for them as they each need and want it to.

See the 3 plans below for example:

Plan A: Study/ Library

Client Profile: Empty nesters wanted an alternative place to entertain and to read/ relax.  The newly retired couple needed their “own space” once in a while.  Created small, intimate yet friendly and functional space

Plan B: First Floor Master Bedroom/ Aging in place

Client Profile:  Aging couple, less mobile needed first floor master bedroom with open (safe) floor plan, with comfortable seating and ample lighting planned for aging in place

Plan C: Multi-Functional Room

Client Profile: Family of 6, 2 children in college, many overnight friends and guests.  Room needs to have multiple functions:

  • Sleeping
  • Sitting/ TV/ Entertaining
  • Home Office
  • Games
