Our Process

At Hanna Li Interiors, our engagement process is structured in a way that delivers the design vision with precision and fluency. Serving in the high end residential space, our clients are some of the most influential movers and shakers in their respective industries, and thus expect a high degree of proficiency, experience, and discretion when working on their homes.

As every project is special in its scope, aesthetic, budget, and timeline, we have to carefully assess each of these parameters and how it fits into the broader picture. Laying a strong foundation of key insights about our clients will ensure that the project’s programming is tailored to their specific needs and lifestyles. What is the use-case of each room? How often does the house entertain friends and family? How do you want to feel when you come home? These are some of the fundamental questions we examine as a team when we approach each project.

Hanna and Jeff New Portrait

We begin each engagement with an onsite design consultation — it’s a great opportunity for us to meet the client(s), understand their scope of work, and explore options to achieve their goals. During this visit, we’ll also conduct a walkthrough of the property to review the spaces and evaluate any potential risks. After this meeting, our team will draft a Budget Proposal that outlines the Scope of Work as well as a general capital allocation for each workstream.

Our full scope of services includes the following:

  • Floorplan Design, Elevations, Spatial Layout, Dimension Calculations, Surveying
  • Wall Treatments, Window Treatments, Floor Treatments
  • Interior Furnishings Specification & Customization
  • Interior Accessories, Artwork, Accents, Plants, Florals, General Decor
  • Interior Lighting Plan
  • Interior Custom Storage Solutions and Spatial Repurposing

Once the Budget Proposal is approved, we will jointly review the Project Agreement with the Client(s), which serves as the contract for us to onboard the Client(s). This phase of the engagement will outline each parties’ roles and responsibilities, as well as set operating parameters and expectations.

After we onboard the Client(s), the next step of our engagement process is a comprehensive planning & measurement of the spaces within the project’s scope of work. This in-depth onsite appointment allows the design team to obtain detailed measurements to later import into all the relevant software so we can get an accurate digital floorplan. This drawing set then serves as the foundational blueprint for functions such as furniture scaling, spatial layouts, elevations, etc.

As the needs and goals of each Client are highly individualized, our implementation strategy for each project must also be tailored to those specifications. The interior design of your home is a reflection of who you are, what you love, and how you want to live. There is great joy in this process of discovery, and we look forward to working with you.
