OUR PROCESS

  • Meet & Greet
  • Idea & Concept
  • Design & Create
  • Build & Install

Our clients call on us for a variety of reasons.  From something as simple as helping them decorate for the holidays, help with window coverings, blinds and treatments or renovating their entire home.  The initial consultation is free of charge.  Our first meeting will serve as an introduction of H. Everson Design, allowing us to get a complete understanding of the project that you have in mind.  We understand your frustration of “going it alone” and will listen to your all of your ideas, questions and concerns.  It is our job to understand your individual taste and style and get a solid understanding of the project that you have in mind.

An interior design concept is primarily a theme or element of consistency that is implemented into a project.  This can be color, texture, a place, time, idea or virtually anything that is presented or suggested consistently throughout the design.  Often we use a particular color such as black, ceramic white or a deep rich bronze as our staple.  Every element of our design would represent one or all of those colors throughout the project. This creates a subtle reminder to the eye and brain that everything is tied together.

What Does an Interior Designer Do?

An interior designer is professionally trained to create a functional and quality interior environment. Qualified through education, experience and examination, a professional designer can identify, research and creatively resolve issues that lead to a healthy, safe and comfortable physical environment.

Interior designer implies that there is more of an emphasis on planning, functional design and the effective use of space, as compared to interior decorating. An interior designer can undertake projects that include arranging the basic layout of spaces within a building as well as projects that require an understanding of technical issues such as window and door positioning, acoustics, and lighting.

Although an interior designer may create the layout of a space, they may not alter load-bearing walls without having their designs stamped for approval by a structural engineer. Interior designers often work directly with architects, engineers and contractors.
Interior designers must be highly skilled in order to create interior environments that are functional, safe, and adhere to building codes, regulations, and ADA requirements. They go beyond the selection of color palettes and furnishings and apply their knowledge to the development of construction documents, occupancy loads, healthcare regulations, and sustainable design principles, as well as the management and coordination of professional services including mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and life safety – all to ensure that people can work, live, and learn in an innocuous environment that is also aesthetically pleasing.

An interior designer may wish to specialize in a particular type of interior design in order to develop technical knowledge specific to that area. Types of interior design include residential design, commercial design, hospitality design, healthcare design, universal design, exhibition design, furniture design and spatial branding. The profession of interior design is relatively new, constantly evolving, and often confusing to the public. It is a creative profession that is consistently changing and evolving. It is not an artistic pursuit and relies on research from many fields to provide a well-trained understanding of how people are influenced by their environments.

An interior designer is someone who works with a client to create aesthetic rooms and spaces. Clients range from homeowners to large corporations. The spaces and rooms interior designers create are equally varied, ranging from simple indoor and outdoor home environments to hotel lobbies and lavish mansions. No matter the size, every interior designer works to create spaces that are attractive yet functional. Spaces must also be safe while meeting the specific needs of the client.
An interior designer is typically an independent contractor who must build a client base. In some instances, a designer will work for a larger firm. In either case, he or she must excel in order to build a positive reputation in the industry and secure future work.
