Stylish.  Comfortable.

You’re anything but beige and we believe your home should be a reflection of who you are and everything you’ve worked hard for.

How we make our clients feel right at home.

UNDERSTANDING YOUR STYLE.

We will ask you to have a bit of homework done before this meeting by gathering some photos that inspire you.

During this gathering, we will ask a lot of questions to better understand how you use the space, who in your family will be using it most, and gathering some measurements around height (so that we can make sure everyone is comfortable and that things are built with your family’s size in mind).

We will also seek to understand your style, hear any ideas you may have, and gather measurements on pieces and finishes that you may want to keep in the room.

If in person, we will also “walk the space” to see how the rest of the house is styled so that we can ensure our design doesn’t feel disjointed from your home.

PREPARING THE DESIGN.

Next, we will take the information we gathered and pull together a style board. This board will encompass the overall feeling for your home — colours, textures, and visuals that will allow us to define how the project will move forward.

The point of the style board is simply to get a feel for what pieces you like and don’t like and ensure we’re on the same page when it comes to your design.

Once the style board is approved by you, we move ahead to a 3D Design. This is where you really see the design come to life as you’ll see how the furniture, textiles, and finishings will be used throughout the space.

You’ll be able to walk the space virtually to see how the zones will be defined throughout your home,  the furnishings that we’ve selected for you, the artwork we’ve sourced, and how the colours and textures work together to create your unique design.

Our clients love this 3D process because it allows them to feel confident in the design before any furniture purchases are made.

BUDGET REVIEW & PURCHASE APPROVALS

Once the 3D drawing and overall design is approved by you we will review the budget breakdown and gather your approvals on the pieces that you’ve selected.

We source from a vast variety of sources — both designer and retail — to maximize your budget and give you the dreamy home you desire.

We carefully select pieces based on quality, style, comfort, and scale to ensure each one is the perfect fit to achieve the look and lifestyle you’re after.

 

OUR PROJECT MANAGEMENT TEAM TAKES OVER.

80% of what we do is not fun design work… it’s the details and project management that really serve our clients and allow us to create truly special homes.

This is usually a time that we are working behind-the-scenes and requires very little input from you. Often clients feel a bit antsy during this phase because it’s a waiting period until the pieces begin to arrive.

It’s important to know that you’ve made the right decisions and that we will be with you every step of the way during the installation.

There are hundreds (or sometimes thousands) of items that need to be ordered throughout the home building and designing process.

Each and every item is inspected upon arrival and, because things happen during transport, we work with shippers and vendors to ensure that your pieces are just as beautiful as they were meant to be.

You’ll be able to check up on your project at any time by logging into our project management software and viewing purchase statuses, prices, invoices, quotes, notes, and photos.

THE RESULT.

We want you to feel at home the moment you arrive which is why we handle all of the details including warehousing items and inventorying until each and every last detail arrives so that your home doesn’t arrive in pieces and chaos.

We have established ourselves as sought after designers in a short amount of time due to our colourful, clean and modern aesthetic that combines warmth and traditional elements that create a timeless appeal.

By blending this signature style along with taking the time to understand your personal aesthetic and needs, we will create a home that you’ll love for decades to come.

 

Making Your Home Outstanding.

Comfortable Dwelling is a Chatham-Kent based full service design firm with a focus on delivering beautiful homes across the Windsor, Essex and Chatham-Kent regions.  We particularly love the challenge of full-scale renovations and making new build homes feel anything but basic.

Our signature style is a blend of modern and traditional, creating a timeless aesthetic that you’ll love for years to comes.  We do not shy away from colour because you are anything but beige.  Our goal is to create a classically chic space that impresses without an expiration date.

Our communication and project management is second to none.  Every step along the way you’re able to log in to our project management system to get as much or as little detail as you desire as we progress throughout your project.

Our background in financial services means that your project will not only reveal beautifully, but will also remain on budget.

Our clients see the value in coming home to a carefully tailored home each night and feeling that they can relax in a space that is truly their own.  They value quality and fine details.

Whether you’re looking to create a completely new home, or take it one room at a time, we would love to explore if we’re the right fit for your project.
