What We Offer

You Deserve Exquisite Design

You also deserve a design that inspires you every day. Our surroundings influence and shape our lives and the lives of our families. Does the most intimate space, your home, reflect who you are? Perhaps you are you living in a space that does not support your lifestyle. If so, we can help get you to where you want to be. We work with our clients from start to finish to make their remodel an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

 Interior Design Services

After our initial meeting, we will create a proposal for a package that both fits your needs and also allows us to deliver the project in a professional manner. Below is a general list of our design services. Depending on the project, all or only a few services may be needed to create and complete the new favorite space in your home.

National Design Services

Because we work on projects throughout the U.S., we are happy to meet and/or work remotely for those clients with homes outside of the Pacific Northwest.

Your Involvement

You may be involved as little or as much as you would like. We enjoy and encourage your 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 and decide if we are the right fit for each other. We will ask you questions about your space, what you want to achieve, and why. A site visit may follow this initial contact.

Our first site visit is to make introductions and 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 answer your questions about the process and will ask you a number of questions as we walk through the project together. We will discuss your vision, budget and time frame. After this initial visit we will then provide a proposal for design work that we feel best suits your needs based upon our previous interactions.

Cost of Services

Our design fee is based on the scope of the project; we do not charge an hourly rate. The fee revolves around the work involved and our prior experience of the resources needed to complete similar scale projects. We offer a number of options to suit your needs. Each option represents a reasonable assessment of the time, materials, and resources it will take to professionally complete your job. Having a flat fee allow you to know the costs up front for design services.  It also ensures you that Ida York Design Group, Inc. will complete your project within an agreed upopn time frame.

The scope of work and our design fee 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. At the final design meeting, we will include the final drawings, information of all furnishings and fabrics, as well as a non-construction budget.

Purchasing, Delivery, & Installation

At the end of your completed design project you will be given a detailed budget of all non-construction items which includes furniture, fixtures, and finishes. We will begin the ordering process after you approve the proposal and return it with your deposit check. 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 and we love to share this day with out clients!

We Moved! - We recently moved our office.  As you can see the Frog painting made the move with us and has found a new home. The office is still a work in progress as there are a few finishing touches  that need to be completed (like hanging the doors as you can see in the picture below ;)) but we...
