Hi! We're SRD—Nice to meet you!

Think we're the right fit for your project? Fill out our online form or send us an email and we can start chatting about your wish list, timeline, budget and any other important information we'll need to get the party—er, your project—started!

Your first date with SRD

Ok, so it’s not really a first date (we already know we’ll love you) - our team will meet you in person and walk through the project. This is the perfect time to discuss your design style, the functionality you’re hoping for and nail down the budget we’ll be working with.

CRUNCH THOSE NUMBERS

Every project needs a comprehensive budget that includes each element of every space - before we really get moving, it’s important that we review & confirm that everyone’s on the same page.

PUT YOUR DREAMS ON PAPER

Now that it’s business time, our designers will work with you to create a floor plan that won’t only look amazing, but combines elements of your wish list into the planning process! We’re not happy until you are, so we’ll keep tweaking until you’re thrilled.

GRAB YOUR HARDHAT

It’s time to bring your design to life! We’re happy to work with trades you’ve supplied, or to help you hire some of the tradesmen we consider to be an extended part of the SRD team.

* Please note: Sarah Richardson Design is not responsible for any work performed by external contractors; clients are responsible for engaging in additional contracts with each trade as needed.

IT’S DESIGN TIME!

From fabric schemes to designing custom furnishings, this is the point where you really start to see the home take shape. Our team will source all of the art and other little elements that will make your room shine!

MANAGING YOUR PROJECT

Throughout the entire process, SRD will check in on progress of your project - we’ll make sure that the right materials are being installed and everything is running smoothly.

GETTING ALL THE GOODIES

Our team will also take care of procuring all of the goods that your room will feature - we manage placing the orders, arranging deliveries and inspecting the products as they arrive. You just get to sit back and watch your project come together before your eyes!

LET’S LOAD IT IN!

This is when the magic really happens! All the deliveries are put in their proper place, the art is hung on the wall… flowers are in the vase and candles lit. The next time you walk into your room, it might just feel like you’ve walked into the pages of a design magazine.
