Interior Design Process
Timeless, Modern & Classic
Residential & Commercial
Chicago Interior Designer
Jean Atchison is inspired by architecture, fashion, art, and world travel. The design process is inspired by many disciplines with inspiration coming from anything the eye can see. Inspiration can be traditional or contemporary, high or low, new or old, formal or casual. Atchison Architectural Interiors strive to incorporate many of these elements in their distinctive interiors to create the perfect home for you.
Investigate and Inquire
The design process begins with several client meetings to discuss goals, space requirements, uses, and aesthetic preferences in a conversation of discovery. An over-all design concept for the interior space will be developed.
Explore and Research
After coming to an understanding of the criteria of your project, your design needs and budgetary parameters, we will prepare and present to you a general design concept outlining the construction, furnishings, fixtures, and finishes that may be required.
Design and Collaborate
We will create a design program that will include interior plans, elevations drawings, and product selections for lighting, flooring, millwork, finishes and other construction items that may be necessary. We can collaborate with any other consultants that you may wish to engage for the project and offer design input.
Select And Specify
Upon the client’s approval of the design selections, the development of detailed specifications and/or samples will be prepared for the procurement of any furniture, furnishings, colors, materials and finishes. Atchison Architectural Interiors will coordinate with any contractors or engineers associated with the project. We will present to you a detailed description and the pricing of your selections.
Order And Manufacture
Proposals for all purchases will be sent to you for approval. Upon receipt of the client’s approval of the proposal, our team will prepare and execute the orders for construction and the acquisition, manufacture, and fabrication of all furniture and furnishings with our suppliers.
Deliver And Install
Atchison Architectural Interiors will oversee the project management from beginning to end with superior customer service. Our team will coordinate the construction and installation through each stage of the project. We will manage the logistics and timelines to keep the project on schedule. We will oversee the delivery and placement of all the elements of the project, as well as assist in the selection of art and accessories. We want to ensure that our clients understand the process, provide valuable input, and are thrilled with the end result: A home they love that is beautiful, comfortable and inspiring.
