Our Signature 4-step process takes the guesswork out of your hands and into ours as we help you bring your home to life. Here’s a look at the journey we’ll take together:


Phase 1

Design Consultation

We begin the process with an in-depth consultation to learn more about your project needs and vision for your space. A home is a reflection of who you are, so we’ll dive into your story, walk through your inspiration, and chat about your budget and project needs. Since this is virtual, you’ll use our easy step-by-step guide to provide us with the measurements, photos, and videos of your space prior to the call.


Phase 2

Design Vision

After learning all about you and your project needs, the next phase is the Design Vision! This step is essential when creating a home that feels complete and cohesive and will speak to the furniture items we select. We start by gathering all the info and inspiration from your consult to create a mood board concept and layout plan that will guide the direction of your space. We then get your approval on both items to ensure that we are on the same page before we begin sourcing.

Phase 3

Design Creation

Once the vision + layout plan has been established, then the design creation begins! This is where we pull actual furniture selections, window treatments, and/or fixtures to bring the vision to life. We create 3 different design concepts for you to choose from with furniture selections along with a realistic 3D rendering of our recommended concept for you to see how the pieces will actually look in your space. There may be a few rounds of revisions here to ensure we land on a home design that you love.

Phase 4

Design Implementation

After we’ve settled on a design concept you love, it’s time for us to wrap up the project and hand it over to you! You will now have everything you need to begin shopping and bringing your dream home to life on your own timeline. Our final deliverables to you will be the final design plan with a master shopping list, layout plan, and a detailed implementation & style guide for you to know where everything will go. If you’d rather us take care of this part and purchase it on your behalf, we’d be happy to help with an additional fee. 

 
 
 
 

 Frequently Asked Questions

Designing your home is a big step —we want you to have all the info you need to make your decision.


+ WHO IS E-DESIGN BEST FOR?

Our virtual interior design services or E-design services are perfect for those looking for guidance, direction, and support in bringing their space together and are comfortable implementing the final plan.

+ HOW WILL WE COMMUNICATE DURING THE PROJECT ?

Each client will have access to their own personal Client Hub that we will use to collaborate together and share project updates. We also use email to communicate weekly updates, send meeting invites, and for day-to-day communication.

+ WHAT WILL I BE RESPONSIBLE FOR PROVIDING?

In order for us to get started on your project, we ask each client to take time to provide photos, videos, and measurements of their space before our Design Consultation. We provide a Client Homework + Measurement guide to ensure that it's an easy process! Lastly, you’ll need to set aside time to complete the Design Consultation Questionnaire before our meeting.

+ WILL YOU BE PURCHASING THE FURNITURE FOR ME?

Due to the virtual nature of E-Design, CQ Interiors does not purchase on your behalf unless specifically requested. We hand the final deliverables to you for you to purchase. We can come and style

+ DO YOU SOURCE RETAIL OR TRADE?

Typically, we source retail so our clients have access to the pieces and can purchase them without our assistance. We have access and can pull from trade sources if the client requests.

+ CAN I SEE SOME OF THE ITEMS IN PERSON BEFORE PURCHASING?

Yes! We understand purchasing furniture online is not for everyone! Therefore, if you request to see / sit-in furniture before purchasing, we can recommend pieces from retailers that have a local presence where you live.

+ I HAVE EXISTING PIECES, CAN IT STILL WORK WITH THE NEW HOME DESIGN?

Great question! If there are pieces you'd like to keep in your home, let us know and we will incorporate them into your new design plan. We do ask our clients to keep in mind that as we establish a vision for your home, you may find that other pieces serve better in your space. In which case, we'd be happy to source some new options for you!
