For the Residential Space

We aim to build form and function into each design, personalized to your lifestyle. In order to do so, we take the time to get to know you and your daily routines, what you enjoy, and what you value most. If that includes a martini at the end of each day, then we know you need a dedicated wet bar with room for a curated vodka display. If your lifestyle includes raising young children, we consider your style & taste while leaving room for play and easy clean-up. Everything is bespoke and created with a balance of artistry and purpose in mind.

The Process

Step One

Conceptual Design

We begin by developing a design concept for your project based on your style aesthetic, needs, desired feeling for the space, overall design vision, and our understanding of your personality. From there, we complete preliminary floor plans to scale with furniture layouts, create 3D renderings, and source all furnishings, lighting, flooring, area rugs, fabric, wall covering, artwork, and accessory options—curated specifically for you and your space. At this stage, you will also receive a preliminary project investment sheet. 

Step two

Design

Next, we move into design revisions and reselections based on the initial presentation. Everything is then finalized, along with an updated project investment sheet and authorization.

Step three

Execution

Once the design plan has been finalized, we move into procurement and ordering all approved merchandise, including tracking orders and providing you with status updates. Based on the scope and scale of your project, we will also be coordinating with vendors, contractors, and other involved tradespeople, along with scheduling in-home white glove deliveries and installations. 


Step four

Completion

Once all construction, deliveries, and installation has been completed, we will conduct a final walkthrough to review your space and ensure you’re fully satisfied. At this time, we will also create a punch list of any outstanding items that need touch-up or resolution. A final photography day will also be scheduled, complete with extra accessories and fresh flowers so your space is “press ready”!

details

Our pricing is based on the scope, scale, and unique needs of your project. Residential projects are typically priced per space. After an initial consultation, you will be provided with a full proposal, including a bespoke quote and the total cost per square foot. 

We will also remain in communication with you, providing an updated project investment sheet (based on all finishes and design selections) throughout the process. 

As an interior design & build firm, we can also assist with the completion of architectural plans, and overseeing any contractors, vendors, or tradespersons you may need.

TESTIMONIALS

TESTIMONIALS

I used Samaan Design Group to upgrade my first business location and completely design my second location. Not only did she work with me when it came to cost but the process was seamless form purchasing to execution. Kathy did an incredible job with every single detail. We get compliments all the time on how stunning our spa is. I can stay enough how worth it it was hiring Kathy and her team to eliminate the stress of trying to design the space myself. It was also so worth it to be able to rebrand and launch our new business location in such a special and unique way. 

Lauren Cruz, Owner, The Body Department

When looking for a designer for our bakery a friend mentioned using Samaan Design Group for their space. The moment we met with Kathy we knew our bakery would be in good hands.To this day we still get asked, “who designed this place?!”

lex & Angie, Owner, taste buddy

When I first spoke to Kathy, my request was for a space that was glamorous, classy yet had the warmth of a home and reflected my personality. It was a tall order, but if anyone could do it, it was Kathy.
She got it spot on. To say that the result surpassed my expectations would be an understatement.”

As I look around the home, I am unable to decide which is my most favourite place in the home. Every room is special. But hands down my favourite space of the house is my basement, which I had requested reflect a retro upscale lounge/entertainment space.
This space is the perfect getaway when I need to relax.

Raina residence

Kathy and her team helped us make our vision a reality with our new Hoboken showroom. We messaged Kathy when we signed our lease asking for some insight and she went above and beyond expectations putting together some design concepts for us. Her and her team were very communicative and flexible and were always willing to go that extra mile to get us the final product we were looking for. Not to mention they still stay in touch with us to make sure everything has met our expectations and continue to bring new ideas to the space. We would recommend them to anyone and everyone looking for that next level of product and service and will continue using their services as we expand.

Frequently Asked Questions

A:

To this question we answer wholeheartedly, YES! Every project we do is completed in 3D to provide our clients with visualization tools and a sense of ease. Seeing your space before it comes to life can be enlightening and alleviate some of the tension surrounding a design build-out. If you already know what the end result will look like then you won’t be apprehensive in trusting our vision!

How long will the design process take? Is there a way to speed up the process?

What if I don't like what you design for me? 

How is an interior designer assigned to my project? 

Can you get me a discount at Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn, west elm, Target, etc.?

Can you help me pick paint colors and nothing else?

What is your mark-up?

A:

Our projects vary greatly in size and scope. Most take between 3 to 12 months to complete. If you are on a tight timeline, we will do everything in our power to complete the project as quickly as possible. In cases when our clients want to rush projects, charges will apply. Our vendors appreciate knowing in advance specific jobs will be rushed to accommodate scheduling. By making decisions quickly and being decisive this can speed up the process and keep the project on the right trajectory.

What is your mark-up?

A:

We won’t take this personally. We aim to make our clients fully satisfied and we do include a full set of revisions once we do our big presentation. If there is something you don’t love, we ask questions on how to tweak the concept to your liking. We’ve never had a client dislike everything, causing us to completely start over. But in the event that ever occurs, we’d be happy to scrap it and give you a new concept. If it takes more than one set of revision there will be an hourly charge for the extra work.

What is your mark-up?

A:

One of the best parts of our firm is that you don't get just one designer working on your project, you get the whole design team led by our fearless leader. All the projects have a lead designer overseeing the team as a point of contact, while the principal of the company critiques each project during the creative process to ensure the vision is representative of the company. All team members are involved in the final design, which breeds a more creatively charged approach to our designs, and an added bonus of quicker turn around times.

What is your mark-up?

What is your mark-up?

A:

Selecting paint colors is more difficult than most people will admit. As we have studied color theory and understand color patterns, we understand what a crucial component to the design the selection of colors can be. That being said, at this time we do not offer a paint selection packet.

We do not have a standard markup. Instead, we make sure that our prices are never above retail cost, that they are fair to you as our client, and that they fit within your budget—unless you’d like to splurge on a specific item at your own discretion.
