Design Process

We are a full-service boutique interior design firm specializing in the design of entire homes, individual rooms, inspiration boards, restaurants and retail locations.

Engaging Our Services

Submit a project inquiry to kelly@stylishpatina.com.  Based on what you are looking for  I will email you details regarding our services and fees.  If things seem to line up with what you are looking for we can set up an initial meeting.  We’ll go over your project & desired budget, the design process and our fees.  A retainer will be due at this time.

Onsite Meeting

Once we have agreed to move forward we will meet with you at  your home or project site to discuss the details of the project. This is an opportunity for us to understand how you live or will be living in the space.  This will be a collaborative meeting to set the details of the creative brief for the project.

Design Process

We will create a design strategy for your home or space based on our discussions and meetings we have had previously.  The design will initially be presented through a custom Pinterest board using inspirational photos.  Once we agree on the general design aesthetic we will provide sketches, fabric, paint, flooring samples and other materials we recommend. At this point, the design can have one round of revisions and then it will be approved into a final design plan.

Design Execution

Once you approve the design execution begins if you have selected us to implement the design.  If you are planning on implementing the design you will have all of the items you need to move forward with confidence. If we are managing the design execution we will begin scheduling any contractors and order any furnishings and home decor accents.

    I would like to hire you for a color consultation for a kitchen. We are looking to paint the existing kitchen cabinets with chalk paint – but need help with color selection. My preference is to have one cabinet door painted as the sample, and I would afterwards have my contractor paint the remaining cabinets to match the sample. My client lives at 2007 Highboro Way in Falls Church – close to the intersection of Westmoreland and Kirby.
