HOW WE WORK
WE WORK SMART
The design concept—space planning, color palette, fabrics, fixtures, finishes, etc.—is only 10% of our work. Making sure the other 90% is completed with as little stress and headache for you is the real job.
With more than two decades of project management experience across a variety of industries, my assistant, Sarah and I have instituted our own innovative business systems and best practices into the traditional interior design model. These systems are:
Streamlined operations to simplify the design process
Budget and product tracking technologies
An established estimating and billing structure which ensures that there are no “unexpected” invoices or additional charges.
WHICH DETAILS MATTER MOST?
Every designer will tell you that they pay close attention to design details, but just as important is to pay close attention to the day-to-day processes and procedures that need to be followed on every project, no matter the size. Mark Design is known for our passion for these details, and our homeowners have consistently praised us for our follow through.
LIVING THE PROCESS
Designing beautiful spaces is only one part of the job. Because I truly love the entire process, I am just as passionate about the creative aspects of the work as I am about purchasing, deadlines, relationships, production and installation. This translates to better relationships with the vendors, subcontractors, builders and teams who are working on your project.
