The majority of our meetings take place on site where we can visualize a design solution within the colors and lighting of the surroundings.

We also have a beautiful studio where we make presentations or invite clients to view soft furnishings and fabrics. Barbara and Jennifer will work with you to visualize a design solution that aligns with your taste, space, and level of investment. Our personalized approach ensures that everything we recommend will fit perfectly within your expectations.

What to Expect

The Sisters and Company has been designing places in and around Atlanta since 1997. A designer will schedule a visit at the project location to find out the full scope of the project and discuss all aspects because we know that every project presents its own unique set of circumstances.

The initial appointment typically lasts about an hour. Larger projects may require longer or more than one appointment. Once we decide to work together, our team will take photos and/or video, and measure the space. If you have accurate floorplans or blueprints, please have them available.

We will request a full tour of the residence or business space and you should mention any specific problem areas. You may be asked to show us your closet to get an idea of the colors and patterns you wear. This is a time to get to know each other and decide how to move forward.

Investment

People are often shy to discuss how much they want to invest in a decorating project but for both parties it is by far one of the most important aspects of your initial consultation. You may not know how much things cost and we can work with you to determine a budget that accomplishes your overall project goals.

You may choose to work on one room at a time or the entire home. The investment in your home or business will determine the furnishing and finishes your interior designer can include in the project. We have to the trade only pieces, custom upholstery and custom drapery. We also have relationships with American craftsman for custom furniture, and imported furniture too.

Design & Decoration

Every project presents its own unique set of circumstances. The Sisters and Company prides themselves on working side by side with you to accomplish your design vision. Your interior designer will discuss the specifics of your project, help determine the investment level and make some preliminary design suggestions.

Depending on the size of the project there may be several appointments on site and at the studio where your design team will be planning and making selections in preparation for your design presentation.

Behind the Scenes

Once the design plan is complete, The Sisters and Company starts ordering fabric, rugs, furniture, wall coverings and drapery from multiple vendors nationally and internationally. The design team will keep you informed of their progress and how the project is developing.

As your products are ordered from a wide range of vendors, items arrive individually and are stored together safely until everything arrives. Some things may arrive within weeks, custom items may take several months depending on fabric availability and production schedules.

The Big Reveal

If you are having major renovations, you will see the major work being done. But if you are having a room decorated, you can look forward to a huge surprise.

You’ve waited patiently for installation day, surely the most exciting day for both you and your designer! It is advisable to leave the design team alone in your home to supervise the sub-contractors who will install window treatments and hang light fixtures.

If you are having paint and wallpaper installed, that will likely happen earlier to avoid paint spills or glue on your new furnishings. Your team will call you to return home when everything is perfect. There is nothing nicer than having left your home in the morning then returning later to see the final reveal. Enjoy your new space — hiring an interior designer is worth every cent!
