Our Interior Design Process

Step One

Fill out the contact form with your information and description of your project. I will contact you for a phone interview, so we can talk “shop” – discuss the scope of the project, understand the budget, answer any questions, and just get to know each other better. Next, we will schedule the complementary initial consultation in your home. During this hour to hour in a half, we will have an open discussion about style preferences, functional requirements, review of current furnishings, accessories, art and create a timeline of project progression. Please share any design inspirations – magazine photos, Pinterest boards, art pieces, fabric, etc. Also, please have a budget in mind for your project – not the most glamorous part of the process, but absolutely vital!

Step Two

Depending on the scope of your project, any or all of the following may occur: create a concept board to show the suggested interior design, which may include furnishings, fabric, color palette, paint choices, art, accessories, wall coverings, floor coverings, lighting, and window treatments. The concept board may also include a space plan or furniture layout for existing and/or new furnishings. For kitchens or bathrooms, suggestions for hard surface treatments may be included. We will review the design concept together and discuss any issues, questions, or concerns

Step Three

Is all about execution! Our project goes full-steam ahead as we begin to implement our design concept. This may involve ordering new furniture, shopping for fabrics, picking out a granite and custom backsplash, or ordering that new carpet you’ve been putting off! During this phase, I may also be coordinating with my upholstery or drapery workrooms on your custom projects. Any new construction, repair, or installation of new materials would be done during this timeframe.

Step Four

No great outfit looks complete without the perfect accessories – and neither does your newly updated space! We put the finishing touches on your design concept by shopping for new accessories and/or repurposing items you already have. Then it’s on to the final reveal! I’ll set everything up, place everything just so, light the candles, and viola… your own custom design concept has just come to life!

Testimonials

I have worked with Erica Tawzer’s Turn Key Decor interior design services over the last six months since moving into a 1570 square foot apartment, downsizing from a stunning 4650 square-foot mansion in Colorado Springs. I interviewed several local designers for this project and found Erica to be the most personable, honest, and kind-hearted person. She intuitively knew my taste for a sophisticated, bold, eclectic space and helped me create a unique new home using the lovely furniture I already owned, plus suggested ways for me to create my own accessories. As an industry expert in color, window treatments, fabrics, and space planning, Erica is always there for me, especially when I feel “stuck” with a design problem. I intend to use her to help me meet ALL of my interior design goals.

She understood what our budget was and was careful to keep us on track. We were delighted with the finished project, which included our front room, family room and bedroom. We would highly recommend Erica for any design project. She has a keen eye with great attention to detail and really helps you pull a room together.
