Designing your home is a very personal process. Whether you’re looking for a complete design plan or getting ready for a construction or remodeling project, B Interiors can take your space to the next level. I strive to provide practical, unique solutions and hands on service to fit your personality and needs. The quality of the materials and pieces I incorporate into each design will not only provide value to your home but will enhance your family’s lifestyle. B Interiors is a full-service design studio. I can provide turn-key service along with my trade partners, handling any aspect of the design process from concept to specification and implementation.
FULL SERVICE DESIGN – Most projects and renovations fall under this category.
E-DESIGN – Done completely online, this service is ideal if you want a plan for a room that you can implement yourself.
STAGING – If you’re selling your home, I can come in and rearrange what you have to optimize your home’s look (and selling price!) to appeal to the greatest number of potential buyers.
A. PRE-PLANNING AND CONSULTATION
We’ll start with a phone conversation so I can learn a little about you and your immediate needs. If we feel we’re a good fit for each other, I will email you a questionnaire about your family, lifestyle and style preferences. To make the most use of our time at the meeting, it is important for you to discuss your planned investment in your project prior to my arrival. If you have a certain ‘look’ in mind, feel free to tear out magazine pages or save images on Pinterest to help me understand the look you are trying to achieve.
Home Review. This is a 1 to 1-1/2 hour meeting ($150 charge) where we will discuss your needs, wants, and priorities, the project scope and goals, investment, expectations and timeline. During this consultation, I may take some measurements and photographs where needed. I’ll listen carefully and use this information to provide a comprehensive design scheme later. I prefer that my client appointments take place Monday through Friday, anytime between 9am-5pm. If you need to meet outside of these hours, evening and weekend appointments are available ($200).
This is where the creative process of developing an overall design tailored specifically to your needs begins. I’ll create floor plans and select colors, fabrics, furniture options, lighting, flooring, artwork and accessories specific for your project. A $125 hourly design fee applies to these selection processes. For sizeable furnishings orders, design fees that are accrued during the selection phase are waived.
This is when I present the floor plans, furnishings selections and samples in an in-person meeting. Once your approval is provided, I will place orders for the items we’ve agreed on. Payment is required to place all orders, and orders will be placed once deposits are received. Since I’m ordering specific and custom pieces for your project, these orders are non-cancellable. Lead times on furniture will vary, but generally range from 6-8 weeks for standard upholstery items when the frames and fabrics selected are in stock. Your orders will be tracked directly with the manufacturer or workroom and I will address any issues that come up.
To save on delivery costs, it is best for all furnishings to be handled in one delivery. If certain items arrive sooner or later than the anticipated delivery date, I will always try to accommodate. To ensure that the items are placed in the home where they belong, I will be present on the day of installation. For renovations, I make periodic site visits to ensure quality workmanship and proper design implementation of the materials (ie: tile design). Whether we’re doing a room makeover or a renovation, you will be thrilled with the results.
“When my husband and I bought a home in Alpharetta, we wanted to give it a facelift and make it our own. We don’t have the eye or time for renovations so we hired Beth Johnson. Beth is a fun-loving, smart, hard worker. Our best planning meetings were done over margaritas. She updated our living and dining rooms, office and bathroom, and made our foyer so much more inviting by replacing the carpeted stairs with hardwood. I trust her to decide what furniture and artwork deserves a place in our home and what is destined for Goodwill. I am always recommending her to my friends and look forward to working with her again.”
