During the in-home consultation we will assess and photograph the space(s), learn more about the your problem areas, your personal style, interior insporation and your overall vision for the space. We will also discuss your budget and project timeline. 

Fee Proposal & letter of agreement 

After the initial in-home consultation, we send the fee proposal along with the Letter of Agreement. ( This is sent to the client 48-72 hours following the consultation). Included in the fee proposal will be a detailed pricing breakdown of the design fee for your specific project. The LOA will outline the scope of services to be provided by Savvy Settings Home and also the payment terms and much more. 

*Once we receive the signed LOA and retainer fee, the design conceptualization phase begins.*

Conceptualization + Presentation  

To begin the planning and conceptualization phase, we must first revisit the project site to obtain detailed measurements of the space(s). Given the client "style profile", budget and overall needs for the space, we will create two different design concepts. ( This is the most creative tasks of the entire process, so this phase takes roughly 2-3 weeks to develop)

Upon completion of the two design concepts, we will arrange a meeting between client and the design team to review the concepts to ensure client satisfaction

If there are any revisions needed to be done, they will be made here at this phase. 

Ordering + Construction 

Upon receipt of payment, we will begin to place orders for furnishings, lighting, accessories included in the approved concept. After all items are ordered we will begin any required contractor work (painting, electrical work, wall covering installation, flooring installation etc.). At this time the designer will be managing the shipment and delivery of all items ordered for the project, as well as managing all cosmetic installations and on-site contractor work.


When it comes to the final install, each project is a little different! Some clients are totally fine with us delivering furniture and other design elements as they arrive, whereas other clients prefer us to receive all deliverable goods and store them in our climate-controlled warehouse until the installation date. The installation date will be scheduled once all items are received and quality control inspection is complete. At the time of final install, our team will take possession of the client’s home until the install is complete.
