If we had to guess, we would say you likely purchased your vacation home for….vacation? Maybe a deeper connection with the family? Great experiences at your summer cottage start here - leave the headaches to us!
The Interior Designers at BCD bring a wealth of style, experience and knowledge to your design project that helps to prevent costly mistakes and to define and enhance your distinctive style.
They understand that the way you live in your second home is very different from the way you live in the real world. Vacation homes should be about creating memories and well deserved R&R, not caring for a high maintenance home.
They understand you are using your own Builder and trades.
They know that shopping for your own furniture, fixtures, and finishes is exciting, but can also be overwhelming!
Our 2 Hour Project Kick-Off is a chance for us to get to know one another and to make sure we’re the right fit for you.
We request that all decision-makers are present. We’ll discuss your goals for the space in terms of style and functionality as well as your budget and your ideal timeline.
It’s also a good opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about the design process or how we work.
This first meeting is a paid consultation. You’ll receive valuable guidance for the direction of the design, as well as our Dream Home Vision Book - a guide for remodels, new builds, or redecorating. This binder will keep you on track with your trades, regardless of whether or not you move forward with Bayberry Cottage. And when you complete your design project with Bayberry Cottage, we’ll apply your consultation fee to your last invoice!
Following our meeting, you will receive our Letter of Agreement and Lifestyle Questionnaire. Our LOA will specify our requested deposit. When we receive the signed Letter of Agreement, the Lifestyle Questionnaire, and the requested deposit we will begin work on your project.
The fee for our 2 hour project kick-off is $500, payable before the meeting.
We work to keep our pricing fair and transparent. Our clients are often away for the majority of their project, and the last thing they need is stress regarding out of control or confusing pricing. Please reach out to us at anytime with questions or concerns.
Design fees are based on square footage and scope of work of your project. You will receive a Letter of Agreement, including design fee, after our first meeting.
We will source all finishes, fixtures, furniture, fabrics, and rugs, putting the complete plan together for you in an easy to use binder that will carry you from start to finish on your project.
As soon as possible! Working with your Interior Designer at the beginning of a project allows you to work through the entire project with a plan in place, preventing mistakes and keeping your design cohesive. Although a good designer can help you at any stage in the design, it is most advantageous for you to have a plan in place at the very early stages of the process.
The most important goal of a good designer is happy clients! While it’s true that we consider it our job to take you just outside of your comfort zone (because that’s where really good design lives), in the end your vacation home should function exactly the way that you need it to and should represent your unique style, not your designer’s.
Your custom design from Bayberry Cottage blends your personal style, your fabulous summer home, the way that you live and entertain, and the elements of a coastal, casual, comfortable and colorful vacation home. It's what we do best!
