To start the design process I like to meet with clients and if possible, view the job site. I then collaborate with other team members and yourself to develop a design concept based on the needs and desires for your space. I select materials and products based on the design concept development and obtain pricing on each item from vendors in order to create a proposal based on the developed concept to you. This process also allows me to develop a budget. I then create a finish schedule and start specifying all FF&E items. I use my computer drafting skills to interpret floor plans, construction/design details, and renderings for visual reference. I also work with contractors to ensure quality control throughout the installation process. I have developed first-hand knowledge of construction materials, details, methods, standards and building codes through my years of experience which I utilize through out your project to ensure your project is completed successfully.
"I consider myself first an artist, than a designer. I believe that every space is a blank canvas and interior design is my artistic brush that I use to ‘paint a picture’. Being an artist helped me become a better designer because it is where both the problem solving side (the designer) and the creative side (the artist) merge and become one, creating something entirely unique." - Krystin Krebs
Here’s how it works:
Please follow the link below to fill out all the necessary information about your project. Once I look over your questionnaire, I will reach out to you to set up a consultation to discuss your home project further.
When you start researching designers you are searching for someone who has an answer to your problem- whatever that might be; a large problem, a small problem, an emergency or something you have been thinking about for a long time. Most people are eager to transform their house, condo, or apartment into the home of their dreams. Designers are incredibly helpful at turning a client’s unique taste and ideas into beautiful rooms with great furnishings. They excel at enriching not just the character of a home, but also the quality of life for those who live there.
“I don't just want to make a space look nice, but I want it function and feel welcoming and inviting, making you want to stay longer or come back for more.”- Krystin Krebs
