[ SERVICES to fit your STYLE ]

Whether you have little time for -- or interest in -- the design process, and want to have all the details looked after for you, or you love decorating and would like to be fully involved: Just the Thing can help. We ask only that you engage in a partnership where your taste, desires, and lifestyle are the basis for the designs created expressly for you. This is what we refer to as client-defined design.

How we work:

Phase 1 - The consultation:
Every new project begins with a 1-2 hour meeting in your home, where Mary will offer creative solutions to your design dilemmas. If you are embarking on a limited project -- such as painting, re-arranging your furnishings, or displaying your art and accessories -- this may be enough assistance to suit your needs. If you are looking for a longer-term relationship with a designer, this is the time to feel out whether there is a meeting of the minds, and whether Mary is the right person to take you to the next steps.

Phase 2 - The design process:
At this stage, we build on the ideas that have resonated with you during our consultation. With your input and feedback, furniture layouts are created, pieces sourced and selected or custom-designed, materials specified. If there is a renovation involved, then we will draw up plans and a description of the scope of work so that you may obtain competitive quotes. If you already have plans and a contractor, then we can review your drawings and selections to ensure that every expectation and requirement is met. When you work with Just the Thing, you have complete freedom to select the contractor that you feel is the best fit.

Phase 3 - Implementation:
You've given the okay to our design, and now purchases must be made, work orders created, logistics arranged. We can take care of all the details for you -- down to the placement of your dish towel -- if you wish. If a renovation is involved, then we can liaise with your contractor, assist with decisions on-site, and advocate on your behalf to make sure that your vision is properly translated.

Our bespoke services are tailored to fit your needs. Contact us to discuss your project and find out how we can be of assistance.
