Have you ever looked at a room in your home and thought, “I wish I knew what to do in here?”
More than likely you have and probably even wondered how useful it would be to get some professional insight from an interior designer. Sometimes interior design can seem intimidating and what is often perceived as a “luxury expense”. This old way of thinking couldn’t be further from the truth and with all technology available today Philippe Luxe is able to utilize its function and make design possible for anyone anywhere in the world.
So what is E-Design and how does it work? E-design is the process of designing rooms with the use of tools such as consultations, pictures, room dimensions/floor plans, concept and mood boards in 2D/3D, and personalized shopping lists so that all items in your design are available from the start of a project. The process goes a little something like this…
The beginning of the process starts with a consultation. This can happen in person (if located locally in LA/OC, CA areas) or via phone and email communications. During the consultation Philippe Luxe will ask you what you’re looking to do with the space and any other key information or ideas you have about the room you want to E-Design. This consultation will go over questions like color/paint preferences, design styles, function of space, furniture and accessory styles, to name a few. This is the designers time to get to know the client and build trust with our client. This time should be used to really give the designer as much information you can to describe what it is you’re looking for and then have the designer take all that information and help create a plan of action to get you a design you love. We use inspiration images and concept boards to help visually relay information and ideas to our clients like the image above. Once we have consulted and discussed the design vision we move on to collecting spatial planning information in the form of a floor plan and gather images of your existing space to have for reference when selecting furniture and accessories further along into the E-Design process.
The floor plan is a necessary tool to examine how best to layout the room and then ensure that future furniture selections will fit into the space. Designers reference floor plans constantly to visually understand and build the design in a space. This floor plan is helpful to the client so that they can give input on if the furniture and design layout works well for them in their actual space, and when they order the items selected for the design they know how to setup the room. Once the consultation and floor plan/furniture layout has been defined we can move on to the fun part of designing the space! This process can also be done using both new and existing items you may have already, simply share with us what you’re looking to keep/upgrade or are open to. During this phase Philippe Luxe will use the help of mood boards and 2D/3D boards along with a curated shopping list to start creating the design. The items are selected from the hundreds of vendors we have access to, both from publicly known vendors to some great trade only hidden gems.
The mood boards are arranged to reflect an actual space so the client can visualize it. Through this process you will see the design take shape and discuss what is and isn’t working for the clients tastes. Interior design is entirely collaborative and flourishes under excellent communication between ourselves and our clients. Revisions are then done and once the client has given their approval they are able to see their design concept come to life! Depending on the E-Design package the client selects they will receive a 2D or 3D design board to see the final board for their design.
Once the final boards are done it’s time to put it all together for the final package. You’ll receive your concept board, floor plan/furniture layout, final 2D or 3D board, personalized shopping list, and set up tips and tricks along with all pertinent information to bring your design to life. This shopping list will have links and all necessary information needed for the client to execute their project. Clients love this because they can choose to buy the pieces over a period of time or all at once. This E-Design package is very budget friendly and clients love the ease of the process along with getting designer expertise on a great design at an awesome rate!
