Premium DIY Design with Option to Buy

What is Premium DIY Design?

Our Premium DIY Design Package will provide you with every detail you need to achieve the same level of magazine-worthy design that you see in our Portfolio. In fact, unlike our Primary DIY Design Package, you will enter into the very same unique and exclusive Studio 9 Designs (S9D) design process that our Full-Service clients receive, however the difference is you will have the intention of executing the furniture purchasing, installation, project management and styling on your own.

This approachable Premium DIY Design Package combines Premium interior design and DIY in a way that's never been done before!

*Prices are per space. Bundle three or more spaces for a custom "package" price.

** Smaller spaces such as powder rooms, foyers, laundry rooms, etc will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.


Is Premium DIY Design Right for Me?

  • I want that magazine-worthy, S9D, "Designer" look in my home.
  • I want my home to be approachable, functional and beautiful and I need more than the Primary DIY Design Package offers.
  • I've got what it takes to execute a detailed Design Plan if you tell me what to buy, where to go and how to do it.
  • I'm coachable, open to ideas and can make decisions quickly when it comes to interior design.
  • I'm busy and the thought of designing a space from scratch stresses me out.

If you answered "yes" at least three of the questions above, Premium DIY Design is a great fit for you!

Our Premium DIY Design Process:

  1.  After having a "Informational Call" and "Initial Consultation" with us, you can purchase and begin the Premium DIY Process. First, we will set up an appointment for Claire and our team to take photos and formal measurements of the space in your home. During this appointment, we will also have a design meeting to confirm the budget, design style and functionality of the space. Due to the nature of this design package, it is highly recommended that all adult parties involved in the project are present during this meeting.

  2.  After measurements are taken and we've met with you, Claire and the team will spend 4-6 weeks customizing the perfect Design Plan for you and your family. Our team will diligently work on your behalf reviewing your specifications, style ideas, design goals and discuss any foreseeable obstacles we will face so that we can fully encompass the scope of the job in as much detail as possible.

  3.  During this 4-6 week design period, we may need to access to your home for what we call a "Trade Day", where we bring in our talented team of tradesmen and women to determine complexity and costs of design ideas we are considering for your space. We will do our best to do this all in one follow-up visit so that we do not disrupt your work schedule or everyday life.

  4.  When our Design Plan is complete, Claire will meet with you and walk you through the Design Plan Presentation. We'll include as much detail as possible so that we can pass the design baton to you to execute the furniture purchasing, installation, project management and styling of the space.

  5.  After we've presented your design, you'll have the ability to follow-up with us over one email to answer any questions you have about your Design Plan. We will also make one revision to our floor plan and rendering(s) if you wish to see something laid out differently.

Our unique and extremely valuable Premium DIY Design process will provide you the customized Design Plan you need to execute the dream space you've always wanted.


Package Glossary:

Accurate Measurements: Accurate measurements of your space taken by our design team. (If this package is purchased remotely, we may ask that you provide measurements for us.)

Trade Day: We'll pull in our best tradesmen and women to get their input on any design ideas that involve construction, repair, etc. We'll consult with them to get their professional opinion on the cost and scope associated with the work

Floor Plan to Scale: We will determine the best and most functional Floor Plan, designed by our team of experienced designers who know and understand the way you you want to live in your space (two options maximum).

Custom Color Story: A Color Story (or palette) for your space, using our 60-30-10 rule. We'll tell you how much of specific colors or tones you should use to create a cohesive look and feel.

Complete Lighting Plan: We'll consider the functionality and mood of your space and create a lighting plan for you. From floor lamps, to chandeliers, we'll plan it all for you.

Conceptual Style and Accessory Plan: We'll include light accessory/styling elements in your rendering, but we'll also include a "conceptual/inspiration" board of what we think you'll need complete and style the space on your own.

Detailed Renderings: A complete, to-scale, detailed, visual representation of the space pulled together in a cohesive design including furnishings, Lighting, Window Treatments, etc. We will provide a maximum of two detailed renderings per project.

Design Plan Specifications: We'll share detailed descriptions of the furnishings we'd like you to source for the space including measurements, fabric options, arm style, cushion options, etc.

Furniture Sourcing Plan: We'll source you with furnishings from our best and most trusted vendors. We can source retail options, but often cannot attest to their quality or craftsmanship. If you'd like to purchase with us, ask us about the "DIY with the Option to Buy" service we offer with a $5k minimum order.

Comprehensive Budget: We will pull together and break down all costs associated with the level of design we are presenting you. This includes construction pricing from our "Trade Day" vendors, as well as pricing for home furnishings and decor for the space.

Local Resource List: If you need a resource to execute part of our design plan, we'll connect you with that individual or business so you don't have to find for someone on your own.

Complete Design Presentation: Claire will present your entire Design Plan to you in the comfort of your own home, answering any questions you may have about the project. We will also send you a digital copy of your Premium DIY Design Plan.
