Once we have learned our client’s lifestyle, needs, and design tastes, we can move on to the next stage of into a physical form.design: The Design Development. In this stage, the Interior Designer begins to visualize their client’s needs.
The Interior Designer will begin to brainstorm and develop various ideas that can be implemented into their client’s space. Sketches, floor plans and elevations help in visualizing these ideas and develop an understanding of how the different rooms in a given space will relate to one another. We show these documents alongside movable furniture and décor tear sheets to convey a design.
Throughout the brainstorming process many ideas will formulate, some will be discarded and others will get further developed. Often, we come up with an ideal design for the space, and then shave down the design based on budget (as needed). This helps to show the client the space’s potential, and gives them the full spectrum that they can work down from.
During this stage the Interior Designer simultaneously selects and proposes materials and furnishings for the space. This includes products such as any renovation materials, textiles, wall paints, lighting, art, furnishings and home accessories like rugs and lamps. T
The brainstorming process of ideas and materials for the space help the client understand what the finished design of their space will look like. When the best ideas are brought together and approved by the client, then the Interior Designer can move on to the next stage of design. he Designer will select his or her materials and furnishings from various catalogs, showrooms, and online sites.
Client Research and Development
Often times people love the feel of a traditional design but want the feel of a newer, more modern home. Mixing elements of the two designs can be simple enough to accomplish the space you’ve always dreamed about.
The architectural style of a home does not have to define the interior. Despite the exterior of a traditional home, the interior decoration can be a mix of traditional with contemporary and modern pieces. Contemporary furniture in a home with an emphasis on tradition can be unexpected and catch the eye. An eclectic composition avoids style clichés and allows the homeowner to make it uniquely their own. Be spontaneous with design! It is the unexpected choice of design that defies tradition. The contrast of hard and soft is a style on its own, breaking the ordinary rhythm of traditional design. What ties the two together is the color palette. No matter what furniture pieces are in a space, the color palette creates a cohesive design.
In contrary, the modern edge of a newer home can be transformed into a warmer environment through the implementation of timeless pieces, reminiscent of the old world. Incorporating traditional with contemporary in a design can transform a space into something unexpected and artistic. Characterizing the modern style with a surprising focal point creates maximum impact for a design. Charm can easily be developed in any room with an eclectic mix of old standing against new. Hard lines of the contemporary style can be broken down through accents of soft, artful decor.
Another way to blend old with new is through a vintage country blend. Incorporating rustic furniture with the contemporary design of a home is a cutting-edge way to get away from typical design styles. Vintage items like chrome pendant lights and a farmhouse sink combined in a kitchen with dark hard wood cabinets and modern appliances is a surprising element in a home! Characterize your style; if you are envisioning a contrast of modern with rustic then go for it!

Happy Modern Monday! Below is a Romantic Modern concept that we here at J Hill Interior Designs are working on for a client. What we love about this design concept is how crisp and clean this space looks without looking uncomfortable to live in. Making the color palette neutral with a dash of creams and metallic velvets accented by a medium toned word flooring creates a clean yet soft look that anyone can enjoy. Also by using a mixture of different textures and textiles such as a hard, crisp nightstand paired with a oversized glass lamp and a rough, organic look of the round stools at the foot of the bed creates a great balance of texture within the space.
