how is our firm unique?
As a team of designers with extensive experience in the specialties of kitchen, bathroom, and interior design and remodeling, we offer a comprehensive approach to design for our clients.
collaboration and partnership
We partner with you, our clients, using our expertise as a catalyst inspiring your aesthetics and creativity to shine. Our mission is to be a conduit so you can explore your own tastes and style, giving you space to discover what excites and inspires you about your home. Our goal is for you to own your style unapologetically, loving it, and believing that this uniqueness makes you and your spaces special. Design then becomes a collaborative art form where our knowledge and skills meet your aesthetics and creativity, rising to transform a space into something more than just a remodel.
personal design – your style is our style
The foundation of our design philosophy is the belief that your home should be as unique as you are. Projects covering an eclectic and diverse range of styles, looks, and types of spaces fill our portfolio. No two projects are alike reflecting the wide spectrum of the aesthetics and backgrounds of our clients. Whether it’s mid-century or transitional, eclectic or industrial, contemporary or farmhouse, or even an undefined style, we provide you with superior, personal design solutions and exceptional service for you and your home.
make no little plans
Planning is essential to our design process. Before construction begins, determining and mapping out design solutions in greater detail for your project both shortens project times and increases your spaces’ usability. We work through every step of the design, selections, and details to determine as much as possible before anyone swings a hammer. Consideration of every detail is our goal: from grout selection and tile layouts, to where you’ll store your pet’s food, how you’ll live without a kitchen for 8-12 weeks, and many other details both big and small, are all an integral part of our process.
That interior architecture and design services should be independent of specific products or vendors is the founding principle of this company. We offer independent design services that allow us to partner directly with you, helping you find exactly the right products and materials for your needs. Before starting emma delon, we had many experiences with clients who wanted to work with us but our product lines couldn’t meet their needs, constraining our ability to provide the best service.
On the invoices of traditional kitchen, bath, and furniture showrooms, along with many interior design firms, the costs of cabinetry, furnishings, materials, and other purchases you make include the costs of design services. This situation creates conflict in both directions: for you working with a particular designer or firm, it means having to buy the cabinetry or other products they offer, whereas for designers, working with a particular client or project means selling you on the product lines they carry.
From these experiences we saw an unmet need, knowing it was time to make a change: we would sell interior design services independent of the influence or necessity for the sale of any products. This was a new, unique experience for us, our clients, and our collaborators. We still occasionally run into skepticism from other design professionals, especially as an independent firm. Working with and within an industry that has historically been sales-driven and inventory-based, the design is often an afterthought or is a value add, not the primary purpose.
designers are problem solvers
We focus on the design, layout, and details first, partnering with you to find out:
- what works for you and what doesn’t
- how you use your space
- what features are important to you and your family
- how you see the space being used.
We then search for and source the right products, materials, style, and aesthetics that fit your criteria.
empowered by design
Our training and combined experience mean we can walk you through the entire design and construction process. We serve as your go-to resource for information about materials, suppliers, and services, empowering you to make the best choices for your needs with advice backed with experience not only on what’s available but also what products can best solve your problems.
