Learn Why E-Design is the Fun, Affordable, and Easy way to get a Room you Love

Felipe Navarro

E-Design Layout for Client

E-Design Layout for Client

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!

Why Should I Invest in an Interior Designer?

Felipe Navarro

Last fall I did an interview with lifestyle website OOLA who asked various questions regarding new clients and how to answer concerns about what an interior designer does and what their value means to their client.

The past few days I have been working on a clients design and I started thinking more about the behind the scenes side of my work. It’s not all “before and after” photos when it comes to design. I realized that when talking about what I do as an interior designer in my daily interactions, it seems the sentence “I’m an interior designer” holds different meanings to different people. While we as interior designers do create beautiful, functional, and aesthetically pleasing spaces for our clients it takes a lot of work and attention to detail to bring our clients vision and actualized design to life. Whether you’re a homeowner, investor, developer, real estate agent, or house flipper these tips can explain the value of your interior designer.

Design Materials

Design Materials

Interior designers have exclusive access and connections to resources that homeowners and non-trade clients don’t have. By cultivating longstanding relationships with showrooms, drapery/upholstery manufacturers, furniture designers, contractors, and high-end furnishings, interior designers have access to all the above at lower costs. Interior Designers access all our resources to find the best and most cost-effective materials for our clients design while never compromising quality. Interior designers take care of all the leg work in the design process and should only need the clients time when discussing the budget, direction, timeline, approvals, and on some occasions complications - we’re only human. The value an interior designer holds is their ability to help refine and define all your ideas, designers help you find exactly what you need for your project.

Renovation in Progress

Renovation in Progress

When it comes to custom or home renovation projects you will definitely want to invest in a designer. Interior designers use their expertise to improve a home’s functionality and create beautiful spaces. Philippe Luxe has over 7+ years in construction management creating custom homes in Orange County and Los Angeles, California. We will guide our clients through the renovation process and notify them about the appropriate steps needed on major renovation projects. Projects such as demolishing walls, electrical work, flooring, drywall, remodeling kitchens, and bathrooms. They can identify which architectural details and features will get you the biggest bang for your buck, and seasoned interior designers also know which styles, colors, appliances, and finishes appeal most to clients. Interior designers make sure all details are correct to avoid a major disaster. Our clients rely on our expertise to ensure that their design goes off without a hitch and with expertise comes the time, focus, and dedication needed for your project.

Client Mood Board with Furniture Plan

Interior designers always design spaces with the client in mind. Interior designers know which styles, ornamentation, furniture pieces, and amenities clients’ are looking for. Designers can also help you incorporate any existing pieces you may want to keep, everything doesn’t have to be brand new. Designers are thoughtful with room flow, furniture placement, artwork, accessories, and other design elements. They know how to make your design stand out. Interior designers want your final design to be just as beautiful as you do and Philippe Luxe works very hard to deliver a great design while making the client experience exceptional and seamless as possible. We know our clients are busy and have hired us to take care of the details and keep the project running smoothly and efficiently. Projects of all scales are treated equally at Philippe Luxe and we take pride in our work and customer experience.
