Our Philosophy
Our primary focus is on building a relationship of trust with our clients for the long term. As champions of excellence, we ensure that every project is built on the cornerstones of style, quality and stewardship. These values impact every aspect of our business and influence each step of client engagement.

Jennifer Ma and her team take inspiration to execution, designing living experiences and sourcing items that make a house a home.

We'll learn how you currently experience your home and which lifestyle inflection points are important to you.

We'll create rooms that are cultivated, comfortable and enduring.

As the pieces come together, you'll see a bespoke space that anticipates your lifestyle while reflecting warmth, personality and grace.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

How does Full Service Design Work?

STEP 1: PROJECT KICKOFF
We start with a complimentary consultation call so we can get to know you, learn about your design project, and see if we're a great fit together. If it's a "heck yes!" from both of us, we'll schedule a brief meeting to review your space, present your project proposal and kick off our work together.

STEP 2: CONCEPTUAL DESIGN
During the Conceptual Design phase, we confirm the scope of the project, establish an ideal furniture layout, create a per-room investment plan, and confirm the aesthetic direction of your design project. At the Conceptual Design presentation, you’ll review and approve inspiration boards and initial design selections, too. 

STEP 3: DETAILED DESIGN
In the Detailed Design phase, we get ready to turn approved ideas into concrete selections. We source every furnishing and material and then create detailed floor plans, elevation drawings, moodboards, and if applicable, 3D renderings. All of this is presented along with a proposal to create a complete picture of your design.

STEP 4: IMPLEMENTATION
It's time for your design plan to become reality. We procure all of your goods and partner with a white-glove receiving company for assembly and delivery. We'll also communicate with your contractors and tradespeople and assist with any questions they may have while implementing the design plan.

STEP 5: ROOM REVEAL
Just like on TV, you'll get an HGTV-worthy room reveal! From arranging furniture to hanging artwork to styling your shelves, we pull it all together so you can come home to a fully finished space. We'll also bring in our photography crew, and make sure any issues are resolved.
