The Process

The Interview

During the initial meeting, Marlaina begin’s to formulate an idea of what you’re looking for in your interior design. This meeting is the beginning step of the project and provides the chance for the designer and client to get to know each other while brainstorming ideas.


Like any great project, research and ideas are needed.

Marlaina and her team will begin to research what fits your vision, coming up with vision boards, and collecting reference materials to help bring your ideas into vision.


Our initial color scheme ideas and styles will go into the mix of the project. They’ll be used as stepping stones towards the design presentation.

First Concepts and Impressions

After a lot of discussion and research, Marlaina presents an interior design concept that will fit your interests.

Not just that, but the concept will be specially optimized to ensure there is as much room as possible for foot traffic around the space and enough open air to make it feel larger.

Final Presentation

Once you feel comfortable moving forward with a concept, the final presentation will occur.

Within this presentation, all desired changes and specifications will be taken into account for the final proofs to be sent out shortly thereafter.


All the selections and orders will be finalized with final proofs.

The builder and any vendors needed will step in at this time to create a plan of action, working hand-in-hand with Marlaina and the team.

Design and Installation

Putting your vision together and bringing your dream-space into reality.

The builder along with all the vendors will install furnishings, fabrics, and decor according to the framework you have in place.

“We absolutely loved working with Marlaina. She took all of my ideas and made them better. She knew when she could take me out of my comfort zone to choose pieces that I may never have considered – and now they are my favorite pieces! She is a complete professional and the process was smooth – and FUN! – from start to finish.”
