What ever style or aesthetic you desire, we will work with to take your inspirations and create the home you dream of living in. We have the infrastructure, resources, organizational skills and expertise to take on and complete projects anywhere. Studio Blu, inc. can and will get the job done on time and on budget. And, of course the end result will be exactly what you dreamed it would be.
Phase 1 Inspiration
We take the time to learn how you live and how you want to feel in your home upon completion. For us, Inspiration is "in-Spirit", meaning we really want to to get to know you, your spirit and what moves you.
Our process begins by creating mood boards to capture your style and personal essence. We then implement budgets and timelines so we can have a target number and date to hit it. Moving forward, we start taking a thorough inventory of all your existing pieces. Some of these pieces can be refurbished and incorporated into your new design.
Phase 2 Architectural
The architectural process begins with measuring or bubble diagrams. Many times we work with architects plans before ground breaks.
Space planning, wall placement, and furniture layouts are drawn so that the ideal lighting and electrical plan will follow. Cabinet drawings can begin once appliances are purchased and we can assist in all areas of fixture research.
Shopping with or without client is determined on your comfort level. We specify and provide all finishes for construction documents, as well as providing all finish samples.
Continued architectural drawings for all custom cabinetry, fireplace design and any other details needed can be supplied to contractors and subcontractors.
Phase 3a. Construction
Construction is stressful, so leave the everyday questions and worrying to us. We meet with clients on a weekly basis. Meetings with contractor and subcontractors could occur daily. We are your point of contact before, during and after the last subcontractor leaves. We oversee the install and all quality control is handled through Studio Blu Inc. All you have to do approve and we take care of the rest.
Phase 3b. Decoration
We will begin preliminary shopping and research for all decorations such as; soft seating furniture, case goods, chandeliers, wall coverings, and area rugs.
We create presentation boards for each room or area in the home.
Material samples, tear sheets, and custom items are also presented. You then approve all concepts and product proposed estimates, and we start ordering. Budgets are continually updated and weekly progress reports continue.
Phase 4 Procurement
Being a full-service design firm we handle all ordering, vendor calls, and communication with subcontractors. We project manage and expedite each and every item being installed in your home. All you need to do is relax and let us take care of the rest.
Phase 5 Delivery & Installation
Many times clients want to see the "Ta-Da" moment and walk into a fully installed home. Others even go on vacation while we are doing our thing. We partner with an excellent receiving company to make sure each item that arrives, is in perfect condition before final placement. Depending on the size of the project, installation can take 1 day to 1 week. Our installs are detail orientated with nothing left out, including flowers int he vase.
