Bynn Esmond Designs offers more than a beautifully designed home. We design complete rooms from start to finish and function as the designer & architect in most situations, in conjunction with structural engineers (if necessary) – planning, permit and construction drawings, selections, furniture, and styling.
We serve busy professionals who want their remodel done once and done right with our proven 3-step process – Design. Build. Furnish. Learn more about how we help you achieve your dream home.
our flexible Design services are designed to serve you!
Our design fee is scope-based, and construction support and design management billed hourly, with a minimum expenditure for tangible goods.
We approach each project with a keen attention to detail and an organized process, which we find integral to thoughtful and cohesive designs. A successful home build requires many decisions to be made, and an expert eye to see through every square inch of detail. We focus on everything inside the building and partner with the architect and builder at project inception in support of your interior vision and help refine the design. We have the ability to see the project from the inside out. With our extensive knowledge of construction, we advocate on your behalf throughout the project.
From sourcing products, procuring furnishings and selections, and creating detailed elevation drawings, cabinetry, and millwork, to ensuring high-quality installations, we play a pivotal role in your building team.
REMODELS + RENOVATIONS
We specialize in full-service residential interior design, bespoke kitchens and baths, renovations (remodels and additions), interior architectural planning, interior design, and lighting design. This service is for you, if you need help planning and designing for your remodel. We handle the permitting process too. Our permit and construction set of drawings are highly detailed technical drawings. We handle the material selections, procurement, and manage the design details during construction while providing construction support.
Our full-service approach takes our clients from concept to completion. Custom, quality, and thoughtful design takes time. We do take on smaller renovations, but many of our projects are full-scale remodels, multi-year journeys.
FURNISHING + STYLING
We deliver a creative vision and work with clients to create a holistic overall aesthetic for modern, sophisticated, and timeless spaces. We understand not all projects require our full spectrum of design expertise. This stand-alone service gives you the flexibility to work with us in what best suits your needs.
After developing a space-planned furniture layout, we select and source the right pieces to finish your space. We then layer in the various elements such as texture, color, and pattern to add depth, dimension, and interest to the space. We source from a variety of trade-only furniture makers and craftspeople to ensure each project is truly unique.
We select, source, receive, deliver, and install all the pieces that turn your house into a home.
TRANSFORMATIONS ARE A GUARANTEE. OUR WORK SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.
DISCOVERY CALL – We begin our client relationships with a free 30-minute one-on-one call. We want to learn about you, and your unique project goals. We will explain more about our process and how we work. We will also schedule a day/time to meet on site for an in-home consultation.
CONSULTATION – All our projects begin with a paid initial consultation. This 90-minute exploratory in-home meeting allows us to meet you in person, walk the project site, and provide high level advice and strategy on how best to tackle your project. After the consultation, we will send you a proposal outlining the scope of work for your project and our design fee.
ONBOARDING – Once you have signed on, we will have you complete a design questionnaire. We will ask questions about what you like, how you live, and what you envision for your future home. We also set up a client portal for you to view details of your project. You can approve product proposals and make payments straight from your client portal. Once we receive the design and functional needs analysis questionnaire back from you, we can then begin our design process.
STEP 1: DESIGN
CONCEPT AND SCHEMATIC DESIGN – Once we discover your design preferences and functional needs, we will start on a space-planned layout to help you plan and envision how the spaces can flow. We prioritize function at the start of our projects. Then we will gather inspirational images with design concepts (concept board) and establish a project timeline.
DESIGN DEVELOPMENT – Once we’ve established the layout and overall aesthetic, we will infuse the design with your personal style by creating a color scheme and selecting finishes like cabinetry design, flooring, fixtures, tiles, furniture, textiles and other finished goods. At this stage, we will be focusing on bespoke details and solutions to ensure the design reflects “your” preferences.
DESIGN DOCUMENTATION – Once the design has been approved, we document what has been planned and prepare for drawings. Construction documents are the how-to-build directions that fill in all the floor plans including plumbing, electricity, and lighting. For architectural drawings for permitting, if structural is involved, we send the plans to our engineer for seismic calculations. Together, these highly detailed documents are then sent to your local authority for building permits. During this phase, we also produce a builder “Design Book” documenting all interior components, materials, written specifications, and renderings.
STEP 2: BUILD
CONSTRUCTION SUPPORT AND DESIGN MANAGEMENT – During construction, we will be on-site regularly, making sure the project is executed as designed. At this time we’ll order any furniture and procure selected finishes, furnishings, window treatments, wall treatments, and project manage these elements and finish trades. We will warehouse any new purchases during the construction process as needed. Our diligent design management and construction support ensure a successful project.
STEP 3: FURNISH
INSTALLATION AND STYLING – Now, it’s time for the finishing touches! This is the phase when your home finally comes to life! We complete the installation of furniture, window treatments, and accessories. Then, we conduct the final walk-through and final review. Welcome home!
what you get
Design•build•furnish delivers a home that reflects you.
CONTINUITY OF VISION
As your designer, we will also be involved through every stage from design, through construction documents, and building. Our priority is to make sure the vision we created together comes to life.
We’ll update and check in with you frequently, and ask for your continuous input through the entire project to ensure your satisfaction with the final project. We orchestrate the relationship and moving pieces between you and everyone involved.
With fewer firms involved, there is less back and forth in design and communication which streamlines the process and saves you money.
PRECISE CONSTRUCTION COST
When we prepare construction documents with finishes and detailed specifications it is easier for you to know exactly what you're getting for your investment.
