How It Works

01. Discussing Your Vision

Our workflow begins with YOU! We jump right in with a review of your home during a walkthrough or with plans you may have on hand. We take time to talk about what you would like to change or what you would like to keep. We want to know about your lifestyle and how you plan to use the home. Are you creating a new home base for your family? Or do you plan to use the residence to generate income through part-time rentals, reserving it for yourself during special times of the year? Will the residence be shared with family or work groups? Do you have children and pets? We design around all these elements to provide the most functional and aesthetically pleasing environment suited specifically to your lifestyle.

If you are unsure of your design style or what you want to achieve, we can make recommendations, review past projects relevant to your needs, and discuss how to integrate them into your project.

02. Vision Board

With so many things to choose from, we work with what appeals to you. We create a vision board that includes color palette options, sketches, finishes, and materials for flooring, cabinets, lighting fixtures, furniture, window coverings, and artwork to hone in on your design vision.

03. Planning and Construction

We can help you resource tradespeople to make your project a reality or work with those who may be in place. We create a plan for timeline and budget to be sure everyone is included in a realistic plan moving forward. With a full plan review, we highlight space planning for individual rooms and make sure they function for ease of use and beauty. Interior architectural elements are created for you; this may include a new fireplace façade, railing, or specialty finish. Lighting plans are integral at this phase, and we work with you to select different types of lighting for different tasks and understand how they are controlled.

04. Finalization

The really fun part comes next! We finalize all material selections for all your cabinets, flooring, appliances, plumbing fixtures, stone, and tile; these are brought together into a presentation with color samples where you can see your vision being brought to life. In tandem, we select your furniture, window coverings, bedding, hardware, and accents to give you the big picture.

We manage all the processes and deliver a turn-key residence that’s ready for you to enjoy!

Sarah McCoy is a true artist. She took our very dated rental property in Vail and turned it into a showcase for the condominium’s management company and a potential future second home for us. She was involved from day one in the following: designing the removal of walls; replacement of stone on fireplaces and replacement of tiles in the bathrooms and kitchen; addition of ceiling beams and ceiling LED lighting; closet reconstruction; paint colors; new carpets; and all new furniture. She is a delight to work with, and we look forward to working with her again on our next project. We highly recommend McCoy Design Firm.
