How We Work

Let us use our expertise and resources to save you time and money!

We help our clients develop a realistic budget, a solid design concept, and we source the perfect furnishings and accessories for their projects.

Experience has taught us that design is not a “one-size-fits-all” approach, and because we know that not every client needs our full suite of services, we’ve broken our design process down into three phases.

At the end of each phase, the client has the option of whether they want to continue to move through our work-flow process.

Whether its a simple design consultation or the “Cadillac” experience where we arrange all of the ordering, receiving, inspecting, delivering and installing of the items so that our clients get their big “HGTV” reveal when it’s all said and done, we want our clients to feel valued and appreciated!

Our design process ensures that the client achieves their project needs while making the experience as painless as possible.

At ABI, our goal is to make the design-styling process an enjoyable one for our clients. Experience has shown us that knowledge of standard procedures helps our clients feel comfortable for the duration of the project. So, here’s how we work:
