Space Planning

Is your home or office not working or functioning well? Space planning is one of the most important aspects of good design and smart floor plans can make or break a space. You may not know what is wrong, but you know when something is just not right. Services include consultation of existing space, on-site measurements and computer drawings of as-built and concept floor plans. 

Drawings for permit submission are available through designer source, upon request. Smart space planning is one of the most critical stages in building and renovating and can make or break the overall feel of a space. 

Material Specifications

There are so many choices and decisions to be made when renovating. We make this process easy and seamless by presenting material boards that create a beautiful, unique space selected just for you and your space. Services include consultation for full design development, including all finishes and material specifications such as flooring, tile and stone, cabinets, appliances, fixtures, lighting, paint, and decorative details. 

Project Management

How do you go about getting the design plan from start to finish? We provide trusted trade resources to complete the project such as contractors, sub-contractors, fabricators and vendors. We manage the construction process on a weekly basis to make sure the design plan is built as designed. Even with the best planning, details need adjustment in the field to create the best aesthetic outcome.

Furnishing Specifications

What should you keep and what should you replace? We will do a walk-through, determine pieces to remain, create a furnishing plan with old and new, source and procure all pieces including upholstery, case goods, window coverings, custom textiles, accessories and art selection. We create spaces that blend old and new, and feel like they have been curated over time. 


"The process was amazing. From start to finish, it was an extremely smooth and positive process. After our first meeting, I knew that Tama had the right attitude, vision, and patience required to successfully tackle my project. Being that this was my first time doing anything at this scale, let alone two hours away from my main residence, was a bit nerve racking. I've had help designing a room but to take on the entire property was something completely new to me. At first, I was very nervous not knowing exactly what to expect but over time, I learned to trust Tama's taste and style --the end result speaks for itself."
