Step 01

The Discovery Call

Every new client relationship begins with our Discovery Call. The goal of this call is to understand your unique design needs, timeline, and budget. We’ll explain more about our process, what it’s like to work with us, and how we can guide you through your design project.

Step 02

The Consultation

The Initial Consultation is an in-home exploratory meeting that gives us the opportunity to meet with you in person, experience your space, and provide high level advice on the strategy for your potential renovation or decorating project.

We gather all of the information we need to prepare a detailed design investment proposal for you.

Step 03

The Proposal

After the consultation, we send you a written proposal outlining the scope of work for your project including our design fees and your level of investment for the project. Our business model is based on a flat fee investment for the creative portion of your project, hourly project oversight to see the project through to completion, and a minimum investment with our firm for furnishings, lighting, window treatments and/or other design elements.

Our Design Process

Morris Lare is a full-service interior design firm. We design complete rooms from start to finish – space planning through accessorizing and styling. Each individual project has a unique set of requirements, but we follow the same process every time, which allows us to deliver our clients the best results and experience.

Phase 1: Discovery

The goal of the Discovery phase is to develop a game plan for the project and determine the investment level required for both construction as well as furnishings and decor. If the project does not involve any renovation work, we may combine Discovery with the Conceptual phase.

Discovery is available as stand-alone phase for renovation projects based on the scope identified during the Initial Consultation.

Phase 2: Conceptual Design

During Conceptual Design, we establish the aesthetic direction for the project and hone in on the investment level required to meet the client’s goals based on their desired level of quality and finish.

Conduct an in-depth inspiration review meeting via Zoom to discuss & hone in on the client’s aesthetic preference by analyzing inspiration photos they (& we) provide.

Develop conceptual mood boards that illustrate the overall feeling for the design.

Create sketches for key elevations or views of each space to illustrate options such as a fireplace wall or cabinetry design.

Source initial furnishings, finishes, fabrics, & other design elements.

Meeting (in-person) for client to respond to the mood boards & initial selections.

Revise mood boards & overall palette and direction for the project, creating a final aesthetic direction for each space.

Phase 3: Design Development

As we move into Design Development, the vision for the space really comes to life in great detail. Conceptual Design is all about the big picture, while Design Development gets deep into the nitty gritty of the space and how we will execute on the vision.

Prepare detailed design drawings for cabinetry, furniture layouts, electrical plans, key elevations, & other details as required.

Finalize selections for all furnishings, lighting, finishes, materials, & other design elements.

Present the final design plan to the client including drawings.

Incorporate client feedback to arrive at the final design plan. We include one set of revisions into all of our proposals.

Prepare purchasing proposals for all items to be supplied by us for the project.

Create a detailed specifications book for the contractor and trades available as a PDF document & printed to be kept on site.

Phase 4: Implementation

Let us take care of all the tedious ordering, delivery coordination, and details while you sit back and relax. Whether you’re a busy professional or stay-at-home mom with a hectic schedule, your time is too valuable to sit around waiting for delivery trucks that never show up. When you hire us, we take over all of the pricing, ordering, delivery, & installation, right down to the felt pads under the furniture legs & the artwork on the walls.

Submit purchase orders for all items required for the project being purchased through JLID.

Monitor status of all orders, making re-selections as needed.

Resolving issues related to manufacturing defects, shipping damage, & anything else that arises.

Updating client regularly on the status of items – estimated shipping dates, receiving, targeted dates for delivery, etc.

Coordinating receiving and delivery with our warehouse.

Meeting with the client to determine a styling direction for art & accessories.

Shopping for & ordering art & accessories.

Managing installation of each piece from start to finish for the big reveal and wow moment!
