HOW WE DO IT
STEP #1 – GET TO KNOW YOU
THE PHONE CALL
After you book a Discovery Phone Call with us, we’ll chat with you to determine whether we should work together on your project. At this time, we will ask you about your project deadline and budget.
STEP #1 of #6
STEP #2 – SITE VISIT & MEASURE
We’ll meet with you at your home or place of business for an initial consultation. At this meeting, we will look at the space(s) to be designed, the pieces to be included, review design needs, go over any available architectural drawings, and finalize the budget.
STEP #2 of #6
STEP #3 – DESIGN PLAN & PRESENTATION
We will create a design plan based on what we have learned from you, as well as our own creative ideas. This typically takes 6 weeks from the initial visit, although it may take longer depending on the size of the project. We will then present our design to all decision-makers.
STEP #3 of #6
STEP #4 – IMPLEMENTATION
Once you’ve approved the final design and proposal, furnishings and materials are ordered, and all work is scheduled. From now until the construction is complete and/or the furnishings are delivered, you will be waiting awhile (from a few weeks to a few months, depending on the project) to see the final transformation.

STEP #5 – INSTALLATION & ACCESSORIES
Once all items are in and have been fully inspected, we will schedule white glove delivery of all furniture and large accessories and rugs, as well as professional window treatment installation.

STEP #6 – STAGING AND PHOTOGRAPHY
We would love to include your project in our design portfolio. With your written permission, we will stage your redesigned spaces and bring in our professional photographer. The resulting images will be used on our website and social media platforms. You can decline to have your space photographed as part of our contract. If you agree to the images, you will be anonymous and your address will not be disclosed for any reason.

A FEW KIND WORDS
“When I first met with Elle to discuss a design project, we instantly connected. She is warm and patient with a sincere desire to please me. She designed my outdoor dining and pool area. It’s so peaceful and relaxing and makes my garden shine. One of my favorite spots in my home is my daughter’s bedroom that Elle designed, which is now a guest room. Elle provided a complete room design from the soft, robin’s egg blue for the walls, new carpeting that would be safe for my daughter’s cat, and the bed and bedding, to the beautifully detailed drapery. Elle uses only high-quality materials and pays attention to the smallest of details. She spoils me.”
“Elle comes into a project as a professional and leaves as a friend. She is one of my favorite people. As a veteran engineer with a company that produces architectural wall systems for office buildings, I had a clear vision of what I wanted in my new lake house. My financial manager recommended Elle to me. She helped me select paint colors, wallcoverings, and finish treatments for each room and affirmed my choices of cabinet stains, carpeting, and bathroom tiles. Then, she came up with ideas that were new to me, like installing steel panels above the quartzite fireplace and using a strie faux painting technique on the living room cabinets. I’ve already received many offers to sell my new home but I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. Elle is endearing and dear, very collaborative and organized. Everything I initially questioned I now absolutely love!”
“My husband and I have demanding jobs and we value efficiency. We needed our kitchen renovated and Elle saved us time, stress, and money by helping us make smart decisions all along the way. It was uncanny how she quickly captured my vision in her design. She advised us where we could save—like on the cabinet hardware—and where we should splurge—like the focal point lighting over our large kitchen island and the substantial, unique faucet that everyone comments on. Elle is talented and responsive. She created a beautiful space that perfectly fits our lifestyle. I wholeheartedly recommend her.”
“After living in a New York apartment for many years, we moved into our first house in Dallas with our two small children. To make it our home, we wanted to renovate several rooms and invest in quality furniture and other elements. We didn’t want the same artwork and color scheme of our neighbors. Elle is incredibly creative and thoughtful, with a wonderful vision and eclectic vibe. We really loved how she found us handmade heirloom-quality, one-of-a-kind pieces, like artisan ceramic vases. The cabinet backsplash in my husband’s home office features blue and white, hand-made fired tile that he and Elle sourced together. He is a typical Type A person, analytical and budget-minded, and he trusted her completely. We enjoyed working with Elle because she was always so collaborative and came up with top-notch options that never felt like a compromise. Like the so soft, custom-made entryway rug everyone notices. I’m so proud of our home. It’s stylish and polished, while still being relaxing. We call it our jewel box.”
“Thanks to Elle, I now have a sanctuary that I adore! Elle remodeled my master bedroom to make it fresh, timeless, and elegant. From the lighting, cabinetry and flooring to the custom-mixed paint colors and the tiny blush lampshade trim. My newly expanded closet, with a luxurious ottoman, crystal chandelier and lighted shoe shelf, is where my children and grandchildren gather whenever they’re visiting. My 11-year-old granddaughter calls it my ‘Barbie closet.’ Elle is so put together and very personable and peaceful. It was fun and exciting to work with her. As a Realtor, I will recommend her to my clients who are ready to transform the home they plan to sell or just bought. They’ll love Elle, too!”
“Elle Cole’s interiors speak for themselves. She has an incredible esthetic.”
“Elle Cole not only has the talent, but she exemplifies patience, listening to clients. Her ideas and choices are built around collaboration with the client… and she works with every budget! Big or small.”
“Elle Cole has a true talent and an eye for exquisite detail. She’s also a pleasure to work with and is such a warm and caring person. I highly recommend her design services!”
