ARCH + GABLE HOME DESIGN
Your Space. Reimagined.
I design residential and commercial spaces that are comfortable, personal and interesting. Great interior design is great art, reflecting who you are in ways you never imagined. My unique perspective, grounded in both art and architecture, reflects an artist’s eye toward color and materials and a strong sense of space and form. I am an artist, a designer, a home entertainer and I am here to make your space better than imagined.
Owner, Arch and Gable Home Design, LLC
I graduated from KU Art and Design school with a degree in Interior Design and have spent the last 15 years involved in various aspects of home design, renovation, and the construction industry. My passion is restoring old homes because I understand the delicate balance between the character defining features and modern conveniences. Ready to start your home project?
If you've never worked with a designer.....
The Design Process:
Step One: Consultation and Project Questionaire: Review goals and discuss how you envision the space. We also establish the budget.
2. I will measure and draw the space as is and then start laying out the different options taking into account your requirements and wishlist. These are professional sketches and we are only looking at function at this stage. We can meet in person or exchange comments via email or DesignFiles.
3. Choose the final layout and develop the design even further, really drilling down to the functional details like cabinetry function and lighting plans.
4. Move on to the fun stuff, selecting finishes and fixtures includes lighting, paint, backsplash, plumbing fixtures, countertops, cabinetry finishes, hardware, furnishings, etc. (optional)
5. After all the decisions are made, I spend some time on construction documents for potential contractors. Basically these are instructions on how all of it will come together. (Final Design Payment due after completion of step 5)
6. I will hold a 'trade day' to meet on site with potential general contractors so I can walk them through the project in person.
7. Review Contractor estimates and help identify any discrepancies with you. (if needed)
8. The design process is pretty much done except for checking in with you and the contractor while you're under construction.
