How Kris Works

Are you feeling excited about the potential for change and improvement… but unsure about what it means to hire a designer & unfamiliar with how the process works? Kris understands that every project presents its own unique set of circumstances.  She’s all about making the design process exciting, enjoyable, and (best of all) easy for you. Take a walk through her process below!

Still not sure about hiring a designer?  Read this article from House Beautiful that explains why you absolutely should…


Ready to explore?  Schedule a complimentary 20-minute phone call with Kris to discuss your project in more detail and learn how she can help.  At the end of the call, you’ll both decide if there’s a potential fit.


The next step will be an in-home visit* that runs approximately 45 minutes.  This visit is complimentary. Kris will meet you on-site, where you will provide a brief home tour to discuss your existing spaces and the projects on your wish list.  What enhancements would you like to see?  How do you want your home to feel & function upon completion?  Where are you stuck on achieving your vision?

The home tour is designed for information-gathering.  Kris will ask questions, make notes, & take some photos (if you approve).  Be ready to discuss funding for your project so Kris can help you define the scope and set priorities.

This session will also be your chance to ask additional questions about her products, services, process, and fees.  If you are ready to get started on your project at the end of this session, Kris will advise you of next steps & explain how to retain her services.


So the decision has been reached… you’re joining forces with Kris & embarking on this design journey!

She will schedule a follow-up visit to your home.  This appointment is typically 2 hours long.  You’ll talk with her further about the style / aesthetic you’d like to achieve and functionality requirements for your space.  Together you will identify existing furnishings & décor items that should be included in your new plan… and which can be replaced. An inventory will be documented, photographs will be taken, and measurements will be collected.  Then Kris will go to work for you back at her studio on your one-of-a-kind design…



This is where the magic happens.  Kris will go to work for you back at her studio, developing a vision, researching the best options, making selections, creating renderings, pulling together samples, and preparing a custom presentation just for you.  You can expect to hear from her along the way, touching base to confirm that your ideas & hers are aligned and on-track.


On the presentation appointment, Kris will reveal her recommendations for creating the space of your dreams. Once you agree that you love the concept as much as she’s loved creating it, the project will be approved and put into motion.  Kris will procure products, manage every detail along the way, and coordinate installation once all pieces have arrived.
