Our from Plans to Pillows® Process
Gather & Plan
The process begins with the signing of TMI’s Letter of Agreement.
Clients then complete our signature lifestyle questionnaire and provide a link to a Pinterest or Houzz idea board that will help us to start the design process.
Finally, we meet for 60 to 90 minutes with all decision-makers to discuss the desired design style, goals and project investment in depth.
We begin the design process with a thorough review of the space both with and without furniture, asking a series of questions such as: How could the areas function better? Has the space been properly utilized? This evaluation may take several meetings between TMI, the homeowners and the architects to perfect the final design plan for you, your family and your home.
Next, we present a complete design plan for your approval. The plan includes the color scheme, furniture placement, finish samples, detailed lighting plan and specifications of all finishes for the project. This creation of this plan can take 8 to 12 weeks, depending on the size and scope of the project.
The development and approval of all pricing and proposals is next and is created within the specified budget for any fixed materials supplied by TMI.
Once the pricing and proposals have been approved, TMI begins finalizing the complete construction documentation of all finishes/materials to be used, including detailed drawings, and shares it with the contractor. The completion of this takes approximately two to three weeks from the time the selections are finalized.
Finally, the furniture selection and specifications are prepared and presented. All inclusive (furniture, rugs, windows, bedding, wallpaper), this aspect of the process follows the budget specified by homeowner.
Every step of the way, any and all pricing and proposals will be shared with the homeowners for their approval before ordering.
During the project observation phase, we oversee the construction for your project or installation of finishes and furnishings, making any necessary visits to the project site that TMI deems necessary. We do this to ensure that the appropriate and necessary preparation is being done for the successful application and placement of finishes. TMI serves as your partner in working to resolve any unforeseen issues that may arise during the construction process.
When it comes to purchase management, TMI handles it all—from the purchase of all finishes (if applicable) and furnishings to the expediting of those purchases. All proposals will be issued for your approval before orders are placed. TMI handles whatever is necessary to ensure the satisfactory completion of your project.
Finally, TMI provides bi-monthly tracking reports regarding all purchases related to your project, so you always know the status of your items.
Delivery & Installation
During delivery and installation, a TMI designer will be onsite to assist, including a media day that documents the design with photos and videos.
Finally, it is Reveal Day! This is the most fun and rewarding part of the journey for us, and we break out the champagne to celebrate your new space!
