Debra George will be happy to assist you with any of the following professional decorating and design services…
Each project begins with a meeting at the project site with you. We will outline the parameters of the project, and discuss initial ideas and directions the project could take. Debra encourages clients to contribute their décor and design ideas and preferences. Often, magazine pictures that you have collected to demonstrate your desires are quite useful. Ultimately, the design and decoration of your house should reflect your needs and personality. You should feel entirely comfortable and supported by your surroundings.
During the survey of the room or house a detailed analysis will be made of all aspects of the space discussed. As required, a Scope of Work list of all items to be addressed will be developed. When needed, a floor plan will be drawn, to provide us with a basis from which to work out design solutions. This is especially valuable for kitchens and baths and new cabinetry designs.
Design solutions will be presented and communicated to you with drawings or pictures of products and samples, providing clear visualizations of the aspects of the intended décor and design. Debra always aims to make the space not only practical and workable but also aesthetically pleasing and energetically balanced.
Selecting Interior Materials & Finishes
Interior design and decoration involves choosing materials and finishes for floors, walls, and ceilings from thousands of possibilities. Decisions about cabinetry, plumbing fixtures, and lighting fixtures are also part of the selection process. With the vast selection of products available on the market, it is difficult to keep up with the latest trends and products. To complicate matters even more, certain suppliers are strictly to the trade, therefore not allowing you to see the full choice available.
The large variety of materials and finishes can make these choices quite a daunting task to do on your own!
Because furniture is a major component of interior design and decoration, the choice of furnishings will be a very important part of each project. Selecting furniture also involves choosing fabrics for upholstered pieces, which in turn requires looking through fabric books in furniture showrooms, or visiting fabric showrooms in design centers.
Debra George has a vast knowledge of the various furniture styles as well as the large number of furniture suppliers, and can take the pain out of these tricky decisions.
