At Elizabeth Gordon Studio, our interior design philosophy is client focused presenting inspired concepts and ensuring a process that is collaborative. We take time to understand the desires and needs of our interior design clients paired with our expertise and creativity. As a passionate and experienced interior design firm, we enjoy the process of developing concepts and partnering with trusted resources and craftsmen to achieve beautiful interior design for each of our unique projects. Our client’s needs and personality are at the forefront of our residential interior design planning processes. Creating timeless spaces that will remain stylish, beautiful and functional for many years requires attention to detail and a tailored approach to each client, whether we are acting as an interior designer, or an interior decorator on the project.
It is our goal as your interior designer, to create elegant, modern, and luxurious spaces through well-coordinated processes and partnerships with general contractor, sub-contractor, builder, vendors and craftsman that allow the client to enjoy the conceptual and installation phases of the project while we ensure that the interior design project is successful and completed beautifully and on time. Our interior design processes are specifically formulated for residential interior design. Our Schematic Design process includes an initial interior design consultation, an interior design proposal + retainer, site measurement and documentation, as-built drawing creation, project programming, preliminary interior design concepts, and material selections. Our interior design development process involves interior design conceptualization, architectural and space planning development, refining interior design concepts, selection of interior decorator finishes and materials, and final presentation and review with client.
Our team is well versed in working drawings and specifications for residential interior design projects. As part of this process, our team of interior designers and draftsmen provide construction drawings and cabinetry details, research and preparation of detailed specifications for all furnishings, interior décor, accessories, finishes, and architectural features. Most of the furnishings we specify for our interior design clients are fully custom or modified for the concept we are creating for our clients. Elizabeth Gordon Studio is experienced in construction management, which is essential for all interior design projects, especially those that require any residential interior design modifications to the architecture or interior architecture of the home. Through this process, we manage and oversee the bid process with the general contractors on the project, ensuring that the most experienced and qualified company is hired for the project and that they are within the established budget we have set. We prepare a furnishings budget prior to this which is reviewed and approved by the client. On every successful interior design project, there is daily communication and coordination between ourselves (the interior designer or interior decorator) and the general contractor and subcontractors. Each and every finish, fixture, accessory, and furnishing is either designed from an original concept, customized, or selected which requires coordination between ourselves and the interior design vendors for specification information, acknowledgments and other required documents prior to order and delivery to ensure that no detail is missed. We have fine-tuned the process of fluidly and efficiently expediting the order, shipping, and delivery of all orders involved in each of the projects we work on.
Being prepared and cognizant of the established project timeline, target completion date, and vendor lead-times, is all critical for the success of an interior design project. When it is time for installation, we have carefully scheduled the construction, flooring, wall finishes, cabinetry, hardwired lighting, and more with the delivery of all furniture and accessories to complete the design. Elizabeth Gordon Studio specializes in architectural interior design, as well as creating custom furniture and lighting for our clients. With a background in luxury hospitality design, restaurants, spas, retail stores, residential and commercial interior design internationally, and degrees in both Interior Design and Architecture, our portfolio consists of prominent projects with luxury hotel brands, fashion houses, and high end custom residences for notable clientele.
