Helping You Love Your Home, One Room at a Time.png

Here at My Design Layers we care about how you feel in your home. We understand that beauty has an effect on the psyche in a way that alters your mood and your productivity. It can energize, inspire, or calm your senses. We also understand that creating a well-designed home is about how it functions, or rather, how you function within it. We understand that creating a home is far more than the furniture and accessories that go into it, it’s about you. Your home reflects who you are and what you love, it houses the things that tell the story of your life. Creating a beautiful home that speaks to your senses, addresses all of your needs and allows you to live your best life is what we do best at MDL.

We understand that this is not something that you do everyday, but we do, and we can guide you through the process. We will ask you the right questions so that we provide you with the function you need and the beauty you desire.

We will take your hand and walk you through it

For most homeowners, the hard part is knowing how to accomplish that dream home. Where do you start? How do you know what choices are right for your situation? How do you make it all come together properly? How do you know if you can afford to create the home of your dreams, or at least fix what’s wrong with it? It can all be quite overwhelming. There are a lot of decisions to be made and choices available, it is something that you don’t want to make a mistake on. We get it!

Don’t worry! We’ve got you!

 

What is it like to work with a designer?

The hardest part of any project is the prep work

- First we assess what the issues are
- We talk about solutions and gather inspiration
- Get it on paper (digital paper) to work out all the details with:
- Floor plans
- Elevations
- Lots of lists
- Create a working budget with my budget calculator
- Create a style concept to drive the design direction
- Create a palette with all of the colors and materials involved

Finding the perfect products

Using the design concept and the to-do lists from phase 1 we are constantly keeping the budget and priorities in mind as we go to work on selecting the perfect finishes and materials for your home.

This step also involves visualizing. As we create drawings and renderings we are constantly changing elements and products or colors to find that perfect products for your design. This is why we emphasize that no purchases should be made until this step is finalized.

Execution can have its challenges

Whether I manage your project for you, (if you are in the Milwaukee WI area) or you follow my detailed written plan (Edesign), these steps are sure go a lot more smoothly since we have done our homework by creating a detailed action plan.

Your contractor will have the necessary documents (drawings, measurements, and product info) to be able to do his job and know exactly how you want it to turn out.
We will create a calendar of steps that need to be taken so you know what needs to be done and in what order for best efficiency.

Dear Beckie,
What a blessing it is to wake-up to the beauty of our home. I am so grateful that God has blessed us with the resources to afford the remodel, thankful for the talent He has given you in creative design, and Rick with the hands for construction.
Thank you for helping us achieve our dreams.
Thank You
— Pam
