Interior Design & Decorating Services
Kathleen Casey Design Inc. is a full-service design studio based in Pickering, Ontario offering virtual design plans, full-service interior decorating and custom kitchen and bath designs.
Are you ready to have a home you love – one that feels finished and complete? You deserve that “I can’t believe I get to live here feeling?”. We believe great design is where beauty and function meet and design personalize, custom spaces that perfectly suit you, your lifestyle and your budget.
Take the stress and hassle out of redecorating or renovating with full service design and decorating from House by the Bay Design. I plan and manage all aspects of your project from start to finish, allowing you to relax and enjoy your finished space.
Virtual Design Plans
Are you happy to do all your own shopping and setup but need help putting together a design you love? A design plan is the perfection solution! We’ll start with a meeting to discuss your space, design goals and challenges. With that information in hand along with measurements and photographs I will create a design plan for your space (and budget) that you can follow on your own timeline.
Our Full-Service Design Process
A simplified look at how we approach design projects
Book a Consultation
All projects start with a Design Consultation. We will tour your space, talk about your goals, aspirations and any current challenges you might have with the space to be designed.
Planning & Design
The creation of your custom design kicks off a “Trade Day” to collaborate and gather estimates from any required tradesmen and tradeswomen. We then begin the creative process of creating your design presentation which includes a complete budget and timeline for your project, all design elements required, as well as drawings and renderings so you can visualize your finished space.
Once your design has been approved, all selections will be finalized and invoices sent. Once payments have been collected, ordering will begin. I will manage all aspects of the procurement process including ordering, purchase tracking, receiving, inspection and storage until ready to be installed. If any trades are required, such as painters or wallpaper installers, I will create a detailed project schedule and coordinate all necessary tradespeople. If your project requires construction or the services of a General Contractor, I will coordinate with that person to ensure this aspect of the project runs smoothly.
When everything is ready, we will schedule your install day. We ask that you not be home on Install day as it can be very hectic! The House by the Bay Design team will deliver all furnishings and install all aspects of your design. When you come home you will have a completed space and get to experience the big reveal just like on TV! Usually 1-2 days after installation I will bring in a professional photographer to take complete photographs of the finished space. If there are any styling items you do not wish to purchase they will be removed after the photoshoot…but I’ll warn you, most clients fall in love with everything!
About 1 week after the big reveal we will meet in your home to do a final walk through of your project. If there are any deficiencies or issues they will be identified and appropriately resolved. Upon completion of your project you will be presented with the final invoice with your retainer applied as a credit. We will also meet so I can provide you with a detailed project wrap up packet which includes all warranty and care information for your new items.
