Design Process

Brief Development

The first phase of our design process is creating the design brief together. Knowing that every client is different, we tailor our services to fit your needs. Here we outline the main objectives of the project, establish design and construction timelines, and agree upon a budget. Click here to learn how to brief your designer.

Schematic Design

Gathering and refining initial ideas to form a unique concept. Here we present you with preliminary plans and sketches to help communicate the design we have in mind.

Design Development

From our agreed upon schematic designs, we develop a plan to carry out your vision. This includes spatial planning as well as selecting fittings, finishes, and lighting.

Construction Documents

At this point in the design process, we are collecting all of the documentation for pricing, certifications, approvals and construction.

  • We develop our plan of action depending on how involved the process will be.


J.Fisher Interiors tenders your project to builders and we handle negotiations on your behalf. During this process we adjust as necessary and are always looking to do the most with your budget.

Construction Administration

During this phase of the design process, we work closely with the contractors to oversee the build process to ensure deadlines are being met to the specifications set forth in the brief as well as the budget.

FF&E Selection

This is where we finalize the details and select the textiles and furnishings for your newly constructed space. We love to mix your current favorite belongings with new purchases.

The whole experience working with J.Fisher Interiors was excellent. My home looks amazing and there was a nice balance between brand new pieces and the vintage treasures that Jen was able to find. Unlike past experiences with designers, where my budget was ignored, she took great care in working within the budget and delivering a stunning space that I enjoy living in and get tons of compliments on…
