HOLMES + SALTER Interiors is a full-service interior and exterior design firm. Whether you are building a home from scratch, remodeling an existing structure or simply redecorating a room, we are there for you every step of the way. We like to work closely with you, as well as with your architect and builder, to ensure a smooth running process with a magnificent end result. From overall style and space planning to intimate room detail in a new infrastructure to turning your existing house or room into your own slice of heaven – we will be working alongside you every step of the process.
Here is an overview of how the H + S process works:
Contact us by phone or email and tell us a little about yourself and your project. Once we have had a chance to read it over, we will send you a snapshot of our basic services and fees. If you feel it fits your scope and budget, we will schedule a telephone meeting to find out some more details about your project and to provide you with some more insight on us and our company. At that time, we will review the project, budget, process, fees and answer any questions you may have so we can decide whether we would like to move forward together.
SCOPE OF WORK AND AGREEMENT
Now that we are working together, we will meet in person to look at architectural plans, discuss potential changes and additions, or asses project needs. For new builds or full home restorations, we like meeting with your architect and builder as well and obtain copies of any plans and drawings. We will discuss style, material and color preferences, take measurements and review functional requirements. We will return to our design studio after these sessions and provide you with a contract and estimate of total design fees. Our services include, but are not limited to:
+ Comprehensive space & furnishings plan
+ Architectural finishes (flooring, millwork, window and door design)
+ Fixture selection (lighting, flooring, plumbing)
+ Paint selection (color & finish)
+ Selection of furniture & soft goods
+ Selection of art & accessories
+ Outdoor design (exterior details & finishes, landscape and hardscape design)
DESIGN CONCEPT AND PLAN
We will take the scope of work and go through it line by line to combine your project preferences and our own creative ideas and bring you a design concept and plan. This cohesive plan will consist of photos, floorplans, fabric, paint, samples and other materials we feel would be a good match for you and your home (this may take multiple meetings on larger projects.) Together we will work through any adjustment and deliver a final approved design plan and work timeline.
Once we have a final approved design concept and plan, all materials, fixtures, furniture, and accessories will be ordered and scheduled according to the plan’s timeline. For a new build or major home renovation, the beginning of this timeline is mostly in the hands of your builder and contractors who will be getting your home ready for us to come in and implement your design decisions. During that time frame we will be working with our vendors to ensure that your choices are being executed as expected and ready for installation when your builder needs them onsite. We will also be working with your builder to answer any questions and check in on your project site as needed.
Your home or space is ready for us to bring in all your furnishings, fixtures and accessories. All the hard work and sound infrastructure your builder has provided at the project site will now be the base for us installing these items bringing individuality, warmth and personality to your home. Our team is at the most exciting part of a project: seeing your smile when it all comes together!
