My Process

Cohabitation with Design/Mandi Gray offers full-scale Interior Design services that go above and beyond the expectations of her clients’.

I treat all of my Interior Design projects as an investigation: starting out by asking lots of questions in order to gather as much information as possible to deliver outstanding Interior Design services and beautifully designed spaces.
Important aspects to consider for any project are: the clients’ vision for the space, budget, style preferences, and timeline.

My design process is as follows and may vary depending upon the needs each particular client. I offer a variety of interior design services, including but not limited to, the following.

  • Full-scale Residential
  • Full-scale Commercial
  • Kitchen & Bath
  • Historical Restoration
  • Eco-Friendly Design
  • Other Spaces

Initial Design Consultation & Documenting

I offer an initial one-hour free Interior Design consultation, as a credit towards your project. I firmly believe it is important to meet with a potential client in order to get a feel for the designer/client chemistry. Your project should be a fun process and I want to make sure each designer/client relationship is a good fit for both of us in order to promote the best possible results.

After the initial designer/client interaction, I will prepare a Design Agreement which will express the specifics of what services I am offering the client. This document will define all aspects of the designer/client working relationship.

After the Design Agreement has been signed by both parties, I will then document the existing space by taking measurements and photographs, as well as, collecting all necessary information which may be pertinent to the project.

Space Planning & Design Development

Once the existing conditions are documented, I will design approx. 2 space planning solutions for the project. These space plans will either be a hand rendering or a computer drawing, depending on the project scope and needs of each client.

After proposing initial design plans to the client, I will refine and make any changes necessary.
Final plans will include detailed drawings, material selections, and technical specifications. Furniture, finishes, lighting, paint colors, fabrics, and other selections will be made at this time and included in the final proposal.

Design Execution

Finalizing selections and purchasing of materials makes up a large portion of this final design phase. I will keep the process moving along fluidly and keep the client informed at all times, while managing the project until completion.

In the end, you will end up with an elegantly designed space that is uniquely yours.

Then, we celebrate!
