As a luxury interior design firm, IDH can help you create exceptional residential and commercial interiors, including new construction, whole-home makeovers, or room-by-room refreshes.
Residential & Commercial
Interior design is a complex and detailed undertaking, and our dedicated team takes a highly creative endeavor and brings impeccable strategy and process to make it manageable and organized. We streamline decision-making, maximize time and manage budgets and resources to keep our projects running smoothly. Our step-by-step process includes:
Initial Meetings, Discovery and Site Conditions
Initial meetings include discussions of the details of your project, preference inspiration, timelines, general budget guidance and our process. For new construction, we will review blueprints and onboard with the build team. For existing structures, we will perform site evaluations, measure and photograph any existing inventory for considered reuse. Our team then begins developing ideas, mood boards, and reviewing architectural plans, if applicable.
Developing Your Design
We begin by creating optimized space plans for furniture layouts as well as line-item budget forecasts for purchasing. We then move into creative development where we develop detailed design concepts, and if applicable, meet with builders and architects to review plans. If requested, we also assist clients to source and vet builders and architects, or help clients to identify optimal new properties, or develop blueprints for a new build residence.
Sourcing, Selection and Procurement
We strategically combine a variety of home furnishing items that blend together for a wonderfully curated result. We work with a range of to-the-trade vendors and showrooms who excel in client service and product quality, and who offer a vast range of customization in fabrics, finishes, color, and silhouettes. Our Bucks County design center locations include Philadelphia and New York City, however our reach for curated resources, workrooms, vendors, artists, and craftspeople spans the globe to insure we deliver optimal elements for each client’s unique aesthetic needs and budget expectations. We can show selections to you via dynamic presentations, as well as take clients on discovery trips to showrooms.
For new construction projects, we work closely with your construction team using their approved vendor lists for hard finishes and materials — all concurrent to your interior and exterior design development from IDH.
Elements might include:
- Materials, fabrics, colors, flooring, and finishes
- Plumbing fixtures
- Hardware and furniture
- Media/audio visual
- Millwork and cabinetry
- Window treatments, bedding, accent pillows and reupholstery
- Accessories, art, framing and reframing
FINALIZING THE DESIGN
With your approvals, we efficiently complete the selection of materials presented to you for your project.
(If applicable to your project)
The builders are ready to begin, or have already begun concurrent to your total design development by IDH.
We order all materials and furnishings. This stage entails little at your end, but a great deal of paperwork, coordination, management, and project expedition by our team.
Delivery and Installation of Furnishings & Materials
Items are delivered and installed in a seamlessly choreographed and scheduled delivery, involving dozens of hands, workrooms, delivery teams and artisans. Every detail is thought through, right down to the artwork installation and each perfectly placed rug and accessory. With the spaces complete, we are ready for your big reveal — a most thrilling time for our client families.
Project Completion: Walk through with Punch List
At the close of your big reveal or walk through, we will address final items noted for punch list completion and quality assurance as well as your satisfaction. At last, you are loving and living in your newly completed space — the magic is in place, and you sign off on the completion of the project.
