Are you looking to remodel and want to leave the majority of the work and all of those details up to us? No problem, we offer comprehensive and meaningful design solutions and the highest standard of client services. This is how it works:
We meet, talk and take photos and measurements. We discuss the budget and proposed scope of work.
Use Pinterest or good old-fashioned magazines to collaborate on the design direction and plan.
Research, research and research.
Provide the scope of work from our discussions. You will feel confident and trust that the Plan will result in a considered and intelligently designed project.
Throughout the project we'll discuss, collaborate, present and update so that the final design fully reflects you, your family and what you want for your space.
We create mood boards, sketches, computer-generated drawings of layouts, and 3D renderings of what your new home, room or office will look like.
We provide samples of materials and other finishes for you to see and feel key tactile elements of the work.
Floor plans, ceiling plans, and elevations for builders are always available.
Create furniture and lighting plans, window treatment ideas, hardware options, custom millwork solutions, wallpaper, fabric, stone and paint inspiration boards.
We work tirelessly to source beautiful, well-made handcrafted objects that are not mass-produced but are meaningful and have a nostalgic feel. We also tend to lean towards locally produced items.
We are here to help and take the stress out of a construction project by managing it for our busy clients.
We work with other trades and professionals that may be involved in the project, such as contractors, plumbers, electricians and carpenters.
The goal is to provide the client with coordination and oversight to ensure that the project is completed on time and on budget.
We source and purchase on your behalf to relieve you of the burden of all the details of product ordering, tracking, delivery and installation.
Small projects/one room/one day style
Are you looking to just freshen up but don’t know where to begin? Would you like your house to be more relaxed, beautiful and well laid out? Do you love some pieces but others not so much? Are you looking for some solutions for the clutter? Do you need a new bathroom, kitchen, custom built-ins or just a couch?
We offer our knowledgeable perspective on color, material, space planning, furniture and lighting procurement, and custom design. We also have a keen eye for properly showcasing decor you already own and love.
This is how it works:
We meet and we talk. We discuss budget and proposed scope. We take photos and some measurements.
We provide mood and inspiration boards that include your favorite things and our ideas.
We provide a furniture, color, material and lighting plan via a computer drawing. We provide samples of materials and finishes.
Our E-design service is a great way to access our design expertise custom to you (not that generic hotel room look) without having to commit to the full design service. This service is conducted almost exclusively online. However, we still need to talk since I believe that getting to know what is authentic to you is critical.
This is how it works:
We talk by phone and discuss budget and proposed scope. We send a quote for approval.
You send photos and measurements. We connect via Pinterest. We need lots of images and descriptions so we can get a true understanding of your style and what you are looking for.
We provide mood boards and computer generated drawings of room layouts. You give us lots of feedback. We talk some more by phone or email.
Once we decide we are on the right track we send you your final room layout and furniture, fixtures and equipment sourcing guide so you can do your ordering and installing. Before you know it, you have your refreshed dreamy new room!
Deborah M., Brookline, Project Glen:
“I had lived in my condo for three years and was really struggling to make it feel like home. Cecilia’s calm confidence and bold ideas helped me create a vision for what my living space could be. Her experience and list of loyal contractors kept the process moving and the stress to a minimum. In short time my home has become a new hub for entertaining our family and friends. I look forward to working with Cecilia on the rest of the spaces in my home."
Julia L., Brookline, Project Risley:
“Cecilia Casagrande is truly amazing. Her eye for knowing what works is effortless and invigorating. I was so nervous about the idea of decorating as I have no sense of what works in a room and had never worked with a designer before. She made us feel at ease, really listened to what we wanted AND our budget and gave us so many options from which to choose. Cecilia is patient, encouraging and warm and wants to share her love of design with everyone. I would be happy to talk to anyone who is considering hiring Cecilia because she is the real deal – full of style, comfort and whimsy. And the best part is that she makes it fun!”
