Overall Feel Studio Thomas Moodboard.jpg

Our recent blog series, “The Art of Layering” explains our internal design process, but have you ever wondered what it’s like to work with Studio Thomas? We’re excited to share our client process with you, layer by layer.

Our overall design philosophy is the same, no matter what kind of project, or what kind of budget. We value quality over quantity, timeless over trends, textures and layers in neutral tones over busy patterns and bright colors. We want you to love your space and not feel the need to continually update year after year, regardless of the latest fads and trends. We design around each client’s needs and wish list, always with the intention of elevating your everyday lifestyle through your physical space.

When you first call us, you’ll be asked a lot of questions and they are not just about your style and your favorite colors. We talk about your goals, both short-term and long-term, how you use your space, and what you are looking to achieve. After our call, we send you detailed information to help you understand the costs and timeline of designing your space. We want to make sure everyone has a thorough understanding of the process so there are never any surprises. We then ask you to fill out an in-depth questionnaire about what you like, dislike, and how you want your home to feel. We ask you about your favorite memories, your favorite colors, scents, even your favorite sounds. We also ask you to share any inspiration you may have that will help us visualize what you have in mind for your home. From here, we create an overall concept for each room to make sure we’re all on the same page before we begin start to select the finishes and specific furniture pieces. This is our time to dream with you about what is to come.

In our next post we will share concept boards for individual rooms and take you through a client project phase by phase. We are excited to take you along on our client journey.
