You cannot do too much planning up front - especially for a custom home or major renovation. Interior design is a process whereby a decision is made and we continue building on each decision in a logical fashion until we have a complete picture of how the home will function and look. With advanced planning, your home will serve you so much better rather than planning the design after the house is built and consequently being limited with what you are able to do.
Building a new home or making major renovations can be an exciting adventure if given enough time and all the steps handled in the proper order. And, of course, that requires having the right interior designer.
