What exactly happens after I hire you?
If you are reading this section, you are definitely in the right place! Creative types like us often get a bad rap for being disorganized. At Coddington Design, we use both sides of our (big) brains to create and pay attention to the small details that matter. We believe clear communication and your direct involvement in the design are the cornerstones of a great working relationship. In that spirit, here is a detailed breakdown of each stage of the interior design process.
Getting to know you
We listen deeply to how you want your home to support your goals for yourself, your family, your life. You will be sent a client questionnaire. This helps us better understand how you use your space, what your goals are and what your expectations are. Have you taken our Style Quiz?
If you are working with an architect or a builder, we will contact them directly to begin our process of collaboration, and we will remain in contact with them throughout the project.. We will tour your home and talk through any design issues you would like to see resolved. We will discuss your style questionnaire and budget during this visit and also plan our next steps.

The Big Reveal!
“Melanie is a joy to work with because she is a good listener, quickly hones in on your style, knows when she can push your vision, and offers you design options that are above and beyond what you could have imagined.”
We are committed to building lasting relationships with all of our clients, and have done so for over 15 years! Because interior design is based on preference, sometimes one piece just feels off or wasn’t what you expected. We are happy to replace up to two items at no charge. Of course, if anything is damaged or incorrect, we replace that as well. We are here for you; you can contact us for support years after your project is complete!
