Our Boat House-Seaside Interiors 

The Design Process

At Our Boat House, our philosophical thought in regard to design, is to create for our customers, the ability to distinguish their home from all others by offering truly unique nautical elements, providing a mix of styles, offering a variety of finishes and textures that all work cohesively to complete a personal home design. 

We have found time and time again, the way to get that relaxed feel of summer all year long, right at home, is by adding pops of sea glass green, watery to deep blues, sandy neutrals and incorporating the client's favorite pieces and colors to establish that finished product to be enjoyed for years to come.

Reclaimed and recycled woods with rustic finishes can be reflected in a steel chain link mirror can then be highlighted by a washed blue bead chandelier cascading over a crisp white slipcovered sofa. This mix of materials is just one example of how we create a warm, inviting, yet timeless home that isn't trendy but more transitionally you. Take the modern coastal approach if you like with aquas, glass, silver patinas on pieces with angles and clean lines or go traditional with rich woods, leather accents mixed with deep, plush white linen seating. 

Wherever your personal tastes lie, whether it be contemporary or eclectic, bohemian or refined - we are here to help capture the mood and add the drama of sea-inspired escape for your whole family to enjoy.From a simple room refresh, where we assist with those finishing touches, to a whole room/house make over - we are here to help. If it's a single design question OR a difficult design dilemma - we're available.

The Process for Design 

Step One: Measuring & Notes

A designer from Our Boat House comes to your home to measure, take notes and photographs of the space(s) to be designed. Furniture that is staying, will be measured and photographed. An in-home appointment does require a design fee of $500 per room that goes toward purchases up to $5,000 for the project. 

Images & measurements brought into the store for design processes does not require a fee. Dimensions must be accurately represented by the homeowner.

Step Two:

Visual Concepts 

At this stage, the designer has rendered a floor plan, if applicable and plotted the furniture layout. We go over the process in the showroom where  selections and ideas are brought to life through visual concept boards of the space. These provide a reference to suggested selections.

Items can be added and deleted to work the space or rooms to fit your exact needs aesthetically and financially. 

Fabric Swatches, Wood Samples and finishes are reviewed in the showroom to ensure they work well together.

Stage Three: 

Making Final Selections

This is where the final selections are cohesively placed on a concept board for final review. The samples are confirmed for materials and finishes.

Decisions on final selections have been made and the final details are confirmed.

Lead times vary depending on items selected and custom slipcovered pieces tend to take the most time unless noted as quick ship items.

Stage Four: 

Completion & Conveyance 

Custom pieces, built-to-specification pieces and all other design components are ordered then confirmed through each manufacturer.The design destination is reviewed for means of access and delivery. Payment is rendered in full and items will be inspected upon arrival. Once all pieces have arrived, the delivery manager will coordinate best times for receiving items.
