OUR SERVICES

F U L L - S E R V I C E   I N T E R I O R   D E S I G N

OUR TYPICAL CLIENT:  Mid-to-High-End, busy, hands-off, working professionals, and realists, who are looking for a firm to take their personalized dreams and to bring them to life! Our goal is to take the laborious responsibility, of home design, and turn it into a seamless process, from concept-to-installation.​

With proven systems in place, we specialize in creating a design experience that allows the client to continue their lively schedules, while we unobtrusively, create the perfect space they never knew they deserved!

WHAT WE OFFER:  We offer a comprehensive and thorough, white-glove service of interior design. From start to finish, we manage your project--one team, one objective. Our process begins with the creation of mood boards, color palette stories, and presentations of furniture selections. We govern meetings with contractors and other tradespeople, on behalf of our clients and their best interests. We procure valuable furniture and furnishings, from vendors we trust, all at discounted pricing. We secure and inspect all furniture off-site to properly administer our quality control practices. Prior to the complete installation, we conduct inventory audits, remove unwanted furniture from project sites, we sell/give away any preferred goods, and/or we relocate treasured pieces somewhere within the home. We conclude all projects with magazine-worthy styling and walk our clients through a full project reveal!

 

This is what we offer at DDLLC! 

If this sounds like what you're looking for, you may have found your next partnership!  ^_^

What is your hourly rate?


Our hourly rate, as a team, is $295/hr for all services, except for travel.




Can I use my own contractor?


Without a doubt! We advise working with contractors with whom our clients feel most comfortable!




Will I be billed for travel time?


We charge 1/4 of our hourly rate for any projects that are over 45mins from our main office. Out-of-state/country projects are billed separately.




Do you offer contractors?


For sure! For most projects, we will offer at least two (2) different construction teams, for our clients to interview. You will have the option to choose who you will contract with directly.




Do you take smaller projects?


"Smaller" is relative (^_^) We absolutely do...as long as it meets our project minimum.




Can you offer an Interior Designer referral?


Abso-freakin-lutely! We would love to share the names of our favorite designers/decorators in the DC Metro area! Please send us an email requesting this information. We would be more than happy to provide trusted referrals we know (and love) personally!




Do you have a project minimum?


Yes. Currently, we are open to single-room projects with a minimum $50K budget for services, furniture, and furnishings. We are only taking full, turn-key projects. For major renovations and new builds, our minimum is $200K--this costs can include all aspects of the renovation, such as the materials, labor, design fees, etc. NOTE: We will make exceptions for client referrals, as long as it is still full, turn-key services.




What is your general lead time?


Our typical lead time is 2-3 months, to start a project. However, due to unpredictable and daily changes in our industry, it is getting more difficult to predict our timelines and due dates. While we will make every effort to keep our clients informed we are guestimmating our timelines are now 3-5 month, to start a project.




How do you determine which projects to accept?


We firmly believe that we excel when hired to design+furnish new spaces--this could be a new build or major renovation. So, currently, we are seeking new build + furniture projects, or renovations + furnishings, that meet our minimum order. However, we do welcome any additional full, turn-key single rooms, etc. Here is an example of a home design we completed:




How soon can we book an initial meeting?


We are open to scheduling a Feasibility Study with potential clients, who have completed our Questionnaire. These can generally be scheduled within a month or two.




How much is the Feasibility Study?


This meeting is a one-time, non-refundable, flat rate of $750, for a 2-hr meeting. This is our opportunity to review design, construction, and budget feasibility. Here are the details for that meeting: Click Here!




I'm ready! How do I get started?


Awesome! If you have read through these FAQs and feel like DDLLC would be a good fit for your project, you can start by filling out our Questionnaire: Click Here! Someone will be in touch shortly after completion!




How do you approach a project? Do you have a design philosophy?


Absolutely! Oftentimes, potential clients want to know how we process as designers. And because their investments are sacred to us, we want each of you to know that we take our job seriously and are not haphazard, approaching a new design project. The video below is a peek into the core of how we approach our design projects--each one being different from the last. We create personalized spaces for every client, paying attention to their words/intentions, and offering design ideas they never knew they could have! Check it out:




Can we hire you just for a few hours of design time?


Currently, we are not taking on any consultative projects. Due to our schedule, we find it more diffiicult to pop in and out of an existing, or working, project. We honestly do not think we can service you well, without knowing the full scope of work involved.




How long does it take to complete a project?


Generally, for furniture, a typical project installation can occur anwhere between 8-12 weeks, after final sign-offs. However, due to COVID-19, our industry has seen a major delay in product delivery. This shift has caused many of our partners to extend lead times to 18-24 weeks. Because of this, we are letting our clients know that project completion timelines are between 6-10 months, depending on the size. Are there be exceptions, of course. But we would rather prepare you for this, just in case.
