Our design process demands a close collaboration with the client to understand their dreams and goals. That means asking questions to determine what’s important. Floating ideas to gauge reactions. The process is both methodical and aspirational, and every phase of it helps us to create spaces that are elegant, functional, and in harmony with your surroundings. During the design process, the following should be taken into consideration:
Interior Designers are less about decoration and more about the design of the whole environment. First considerations at Forbes are scale, volume, proportion, space planning, and finishes. Furniture and accessories then fit naturally into the surroundings.
It is most important that at the end of a project, your home truly represents your lifestyle. The Forbes design process pays close attention to existing furnishings and decorations to incorporate personal collections and preferences.
"Flow" and "direction" are signatures of a Forbes interior design. Each space relates to the one just beyond. The goal is to create an immediate feeling about that next room before a person even enters it.
It can serve as dramatic or subtle backdrop for the furnishings. Create flow between rooms and spaces. Punctuate a setting or suggest a mood. Color is the driver at Forbes. It unifies the design and gives it context.
The most beautiful setting in the world can benefit from artful lighting. Forbes considers the role of each space before determining where to direct the eye, and how much to reveal with artistic and functional lighting designs.
A design is not successful if when entering a room, one is confused about where to look. Forbes creates "focal points" in a space so that the flow and function of each room are quickly and easily understood.
Bringing the outside in can expand space and eliminate borders. Nature offers design cues that transform a great space into an extraordinary one. Forbes makes those connections with architecture, space planning, color and textures.
