Residential Design Process
By creating a team partnership with yourself our design team, we can best focus on your unique requirements and specific needs. We start by asking questions. We listen carefully to you. We strive to develop the vision for the space. We determine solutions while keeping you involved and informed. Dedicated to satisfying our clients long term, our project management style utilizes hands-on coordination and participation in the design process to create solutions that meet YOUR goals while adhering to the principles of good design and are timelessness.
Emphasizing creation of the total environment through lighting, color, texture, fabric, and furniture, we offer coordination from start to finish.
Whether you are considering an interior update, a kitchen or bath remodel, or a full remodeling your home, or building a new home, we help you manage the many tasks required to make your project a success. We engage our highly qualified network of trained professionals to assist in completing the project.
Our unique mission and focus is to create environments that are healthy for you and the environment. Any project, residential or commercial can be sustainable, or "green". Beyond our standard design process, sustainable projects receive special attention during the planning and selection process to ensure materials selected and systems designed and utilized are sustainable.
For projects that would like to achieve LEED certification, the process begins before the design has begun. We have successfully completed several LEED projects and have achieved LEED certification including Gold and Silver. We have actively participated in the project registration and certification process with IUSGBC. Please discuss your sustainability goals with us so we may help you accomplish them.
As a LEED Accredited professional, we support the initiatives of the US Green Building Council and strive to use the principles of sustainability.
What Our Clients Are Saying
We have been working with Joan for 15 years or so, on our Wheaton home. She determined quickly what our comfort zones were and gave us multiple choices re: couches, chairs, rugs, lamps, artwork, etc. We couldn't be happier than we are with our updated Living Room, Dining Room, Family Room and Powder Room. She also helped turn our seventies kitchen into a beautiful, modern kitchen we love. We are now working with her on furnishing our Florida Condo. We see no reason to consider anyone else.

Interior Planning and Design made my extensive remodel an enjoyable experience that I would do again!!!! Joan's personal service brought together my wants and need while respecting my budget. She worked with my architect and contractor to enhance the style offering suggestions on lighting and accessories that took the project over the top in function and beauty. Joan supplied me with varieties of fabric,furniture,colors and textures to select never once pushing her choices as this is My House. I encourage all to use Interior Planning and Design for their large and small plans.

I have really appreciated the way Joan has helped me narrow the world of choice down to something I can reasonably pick from. The project will look terrific when we are done!
