“Your home is a direct reflection of you. It’s a visual representation of your unique personal style. Each piece should be selected with intention. A good interior designer has the ability to capture that essence and impact the way you feel the moment you walk through the door.” – Carly Childs

My 5 Step Process – The Complete Package

Step 1 – Information Gathering Session

Determining your design style is the first step of any project. I approach this initial phase by conducting an information gathering meeting to gauge your preferences and learn more about the functionality of the space(s). The meeting is typically an hour in length. Following this session, I request that you start pinning inspiration images on your Pinterest board that I’ve created for you. We will then review the images over a 30 minute call and discuss what you like and dislike so that I can walk away with the information needed to create distinct moodboards.

Step 2 – Moodboard Selection

Reviewing moodboards allows you to compare design styles to determine which option you want to go with for your project. I will pull together examples of furniture, decor, art, paint, etc. so that you get a visual snapshot of the style options you can select from. We will review the boards over a call so you can ask questions.

Step 3 – Design Concepts & Floorplan Review

Concept boards and floorplans provide you with a more literal vision of your space. I will create a new spaceplan for your room(s) and layout the pieces in the room within a concept board so that you can see how the room will come together visually. Depending on the scope of the project, I will most likely provide you with 2-3 design concepts and floorplans so that you have multiple options to select from. During the process, I am here to address any questions you may have and make revisions based on your feedback.

Step 4 – Initial Design Presentation+ Inventory List

During this phase of the design process, I will present your selected floorplan and design direction in a visual mockup. I will also provide you with a complete inventory list including my recommendations and additional options of: furniture, decor, rugs, lighting, etc. You will have the opportunity to provide me with feedback and ask questions along the way.

Step 5 – Revised Design Presentation + Inventory List

Based on revision requests from step 4, I will put together a final revised design presentation – including an updated inventory list and visual mockup. This is the last step of the design process.


“Before working with Carly I had no idea how to articulate my vision for my space. I had a vague idea of what I liked but felt overwhelmed trying to scroll through Pinterest to create the aesthetic I was looking for. Carly was able to take my vague ideas and create the exact vision and vibe I was looking for in my office. She helped me optimize my layout to give it a much better and lighter feel. She took the time to curate large furniture pieces that fit my budget and were the style I was looking for. Carly has a great eye for style, is super communicative and really understands how to take ideas and create a complete vision. I highly recommend working with Carly if you’re looking for help redesigning any space!” – Jenny Jones

“As a designer, Carly knows how to identify your style by asking all the right questions in a conversational manner. She’s inquisitive about what ascetically appeals to you. Her professional presentation board helps you determine possible color schemes , styles of furniture and accessories that would look good in your space. Although it’s been 4 years since Carly assisted us with paint, flooring and fixture choices, our friends still comment on these wonderful selections. So glad to have Carly available for future renovation projects. You will never regret having a consultation with Carly. Not a day goes by where I don’t thank her silently.” – Cherri Harris
