At Prospect Refuge Studio we are constantly in pursuit of the carefully crafted client experience while bringing beauty and quality into your home. What does a luxury design experience feel like? Through our thoughtful design process, we manage the execution of your design - to leave you with more time to enjoy it. We’ll be here to guide you through the seemingly daunting task of transforming your home into the space of your dreams, all while keeping reign of budget, timelines, and a singular end result.
We love to work on a diverse range of projects - from residential to retail, second homes to hotels, workspaces to worship spaces.
As a boutique design firm, we work intimately with a limited number of clients at a time. In order to make sure we are a good fit, let us share a bit of our process:
Each and every one of our projects begins with a consultation where we get to know you and your home. This 2 hour, in-home, working design appointment is a great opportunity to tackle smaller tasks such as a paint plan, general space planning, or just to ask a professional your laundry list of design questions. For larger projects, you’ll leave with an understanding of scope for your project and a solid set of next steps.
After our consultation, we create a flat-fee design estimate for your project and walk you through every step of our detailed process. We’ll work with you to hone in on the scope, establish a budget, and determine a timeline. Once expectations are in alignment, we’ll ask for a retainer to reserve your space in our studio calendar.
After your contract and retainer are in order, we’ll schedule your project’s commencement date. This will be a full-day in your home to collect all the measurements, photos, and notes required, as well as meet on-site with any tradespeople necessary to complete your project. We’ll get to work on your design proposal (insert magic here) and you’ll sit down with us again in 4-6 weeks to review your complete design package. For larger projects, we include client/designer shopping trips and up to two rounds of revisions to ensure your project feels completely ‘you’.
In addition to design, our full service team is here to simplify and streamline management of the entire process. Our turn-key service includes purchasing, receiving, storage and quality control. We also take care of all the details on installation day so that you can come home to curtains hung, light fixtures installed, furnishings delivered, packaging removed,
and accessories perfectly placed.
