"Rebecca was super knowledgeable, professional, and pleasant to work with from start to finish! She guided us very well through our first renovation project- we were very green to the process. Working with her to make what felt like a million selections for paint, tile/grout, lighting, countertops, appliances, etc. for our project wound up very fun and not the stressful task I thought it was going to be. We've recommended Monarch Lane to friends- one of them is currently working with Rebecca on their kitchen as well. We love our new kitchen and the experience of working with the ladies of Monarch Lane!"

Every good design starts with capturing what you want the mood to be for your space. After our meeting you & collecting your project and design goals, we cultivate a design direction. This not only leads our design, but is referred to throughout the entire project.
We explore possible layouts for your new Kitchen making sure that everything is functional and flows together. We apply different design concepts from the mood board to connect style and function.
We shop with and for you to put together all material selections needed in your Remodeling & Refresh projects. We will discuss quality, sustainability, and aesthetic, making sure everything works together with color, style, and design.
We attend regular site visits to ensure that the project is being built as designed and to be your advocate throughout the process.
In our Kitchen Remodeling projects, we want to go cabinet by cabinet and make sure that we have planned for everything that goes in your Kitchen. We will organize zones, beginning at the floor plan stage, and then talk through each cabinet and what will be inside. Momma always said, "it was what was inside that counts," and we know you will be delighted with the accessories and tools that support your life & elevate your daily experience.
We put together a final plan set based on our design and the materials & selections. This will help your contractor to build your project out and for you to be able to visualize the your new Kitchen.
We believe in a very organized approach to pulling your design project together. We want this to be a great experience for you and to serve you well.
This is our signature process.
You are hungry for change. You want solutions for your environment and you are gathering information. Every project starts with a Discovery Call to see how we can help serve you best.
It is essential to have a direction and a plan. We develop a conceptual design, creative ideas, and plan options that will make better use of your space and update your investment. We work to understand your wants, needs, and your personal style.
You need someone who will save you time and money. We cultivate solutions for your project based on costs, outcome, and your unique way of living. Bringing food for your soul and your environment.
The result is a beautiful, functional, and custom space built for you! We define luxury by an environment and its surroundings that elevate the way you live. Your space has been transformed! It is time to celebrate!! We can even help you pull together the finishing touches to organize and accentuate the design.
You want to to know that every layer is carefully thought through and executed correctly. We wrap all the details with care to make sure everything will be built to our specifications. A lot goes on behind the scenes that we make sure is built right. We help you through the waiting. (Even when it seems like nothing is happening).
We start with a creative session to learn how we could plan the space better for your needs, to learn your likes and dislikes, and get clear on design goals. From this meeting we go back to our studio to put together a design concept for your project. With a clear direction, we will all know where we are going.
The design phase where all the planning and preparing takes place takes is roughly 6-8 weeks depending on your availability. The transformation of your space has a lot to do with the level of construction you are needing. For a Kitchen refresh, you are not buying cabinetry, so it speeds up the process. For a Kitchen remodel with our trades doing the work, an average Kitchen remodel is 6-8 weeks. We know that a remodel is a disruption to your everyday life, so we make sure to have everything ordered and ready before we begin. We also work with trades that stay on a specific timeline that we all agree on.
We will set up a second visit with our trades to get the estimates and costs for your specific project. While we may not know the exact finishes and fixtures at that time, we can get you a ballpark and budget for your project from our trade day.
No. While we have vetted our trades and have lasting relationships, there is no pressure to work with them. However, we know their quality of work and can stand behind the end result.
If you choose the tradesmen on your own, we just ask that they be licensed in their field. We also require that they sign our design/construction agreement so that you have your design & construction team working seamlessly together. We love meeting new and talented trades! We just want to make sure they take great care of you and that your project is built to specification.
Yes! Our online studio gives us the platform to deliver the design to you virtually. Since we only have trades that are local to our area, you will need to go to our DIY design service. There you can select the room “Kitchen” and get started! We have same design team that works on full service projects that will provide a plan set for your contractor and trades to build from.
