What We Offer

You deserve to live in a home that inspires you everyday.

Our homes influence and shape our lives and the lives of our families. We help our clients create spaces that support their lifestyle.  We are there for our clients from start to finish to make the design process an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Relocation Services

If you are relocating to the Portland Area, then we are here to help.  We take the stress out of setting up your home by offering interior design and installation services.   We will work with you in whichever way is easiest for you. Generally our clients like to work through conference calls and emails.  This is how we learn about what you specifically need in your new home and work through the process.  We make it easy to make decisions by sending you product options for your approval in easy to follow presentations.  Once approved we begin purchasing and setting up your new space so that it is ready for you by the time you arrive at PDX.  Once you’re here,  you and your family need to simply bring your clothes, relax and spend time discovering your new surroundings.

Your Involvement

You may be involved as little or as much as you would like. We enjoy and encourage client participation however it is not necessarily a requirement. For some clients, we act as guides navigating them through design to the completed project. While others want us to handle the entire project independently from start to finish. It is entirely up to you at which level you would like to participate.

To Begin

Our first point of contact is generally a phone call. Before we work together, we will need to review the project parameters, a phone call is usually the most efficient way to get to know each other.  We will ask you questions about your space, what you want to achieve, and why.  We will discuss your vision, budget and time frame.  If we are a good fit for your needs, then we will follow up with a site visit to the house.  For those people who are relocating to the Portland Area, you need not be present for any of site visits we make to your home.  

Our first site visit is to  see the space in person. One of our designers will come to your home for 30-45 mins, depending on the scale of the project. We will walk the space and take notes of what is needed to complete your vision.   After this initial visit we will provide a proposal for design work that we feel best suits your needs.

Cost of Services

Design fees are based on the scope of the project and the time involved to complete the project start to finish.   The scope of work fees are defined and detailed in the document called Letter of Agreement, which spells out the agreement between you, the client, and Ida York Design Group, Inc.

The Design Process Timeline

The process will vary according to the complexity of the job. Your specific timeline will be included in the Letter of Agreement for your project. We will have a number of presentations and will ask for approvals and feedback from you.

Purchasing, Delivery, & Installation

Once design is approved, you will be given a detailed budget of all non-construction items which includes furniture, fixtures, and finishes. We will a proposal and invoice for you to sign and return with payment.  Once items arrive we inspect them, handle any issues that may arise, and then deliver, and install every item into its correct place.  It is an absolutely rewarding day for everyone when we all see the design that we’ve envisioned come to life!
