Working with an architect from the start of the project was key to the success of the build, she says.  “Many people think interior design follows the build, but working with the architect on the floor plan and interiors from the beginning creates a more cohesive result.  And that way, you can resolve any issues early on – from where the power and plumbing points are going, to furniture choices and any custom joinery that you may need.  This can save a lot of time, money and stress.  I also recommend buying major furniture and lighting pieces during the build in case the budget is tight at the end.”
