OUR PROCESS

  • Ideas & Concepts
  • Design & Create
  • Build & Install
  • Decorate & Complete

Creating a home is a collaborative process between the client, the designer and the team of contractors.  All projects begin with a consultation to better understand each client’s vision and to develop a detailed construction plan that establishes timelines, budgets, materials, furnishings and all other associated costs.  Clients are asked to fill out a Design Objective & Lifestyle Questionnaire so that all plans will not only look beautiful, but they will also function seamlessly.  Gabrielle Raven both designs and manages projects, having developed unparalleled skills in coordination and problem solving.

Once the scope, concept and budget criteria are set, Gabrielle Raven will start to design and plan the project.  This will include devising room layouts; drafting perspective renderings; furniture and lighting schedules; custom paint and fabric swatches; tile, flooring and material sourcing and fixture and appliance specifications.  Shopping trips to various suppliers and shops, including exclusive “trade only” showrooms, will also be arranged. Gabrielle Raven has significant international sources for merchandise to provide her clients with the best selection and value.

Once clients approve all plans and materials, orders will be placed and a list of contractors will be provided to the client. Gabrielle Raven has proprietary suppliers and contractors that provide high quality service at competitive prices. Her distinguished cast of trades share her dedication to process and outcomes. These long-standing relationships create efficiency, so the job is done correctly.  Gabrielle Raven will directly order many interior finishing materials including: windows, doors, flooring, cabinetry, lighting, furnishings, décor and art. Gabrielle Raven also manages the project for clients to ensure that there is an efficient work process and quality control.

The reason to use a designer decorator for your home renovation and addition is simple: we are more experienced; we know the market and we know what works. We have studied global and historic design, having traveled the world in search of the best designed objects, rooms, art, landscapes-you name it. It is a passion and one that never ceases to inspire.

Gabrielle Raven prides herself on the use of custom paint colors that she creates on site for all her clients.  She also dry lays sample tiles and all surface finishes to ensure that clients are happy with the choices prior to installation to avoid costly mistakes.  She also will mock-up furnishings and art placement directly on site to take any guesswork out of the process.  Upon completion of all installations, the site will be cleaned so that all furnishings can be placed including art.  At the end of the project, clients will be handed a book that contains all manuals and important details relating to the project, including custom color formulas; fabric swatches and manufacturer information for products purchased.

Residential Design

Gabrielle Raven Interiors is an award-winning design and interior decoration firm specializing in creating artful, functional renovations and redesigns that seamlessly blend with clients’ personalities and the natural setting.  With over 20 years of experience in designing luxury housewares, furniture and residences, Gabrielle Raven’s particular talent is in the mixture of antique and contemporary objects which creates a serene elegance.  Color, materials, furnishings and context are her tools to express a sense of comfort and psychological well-being for all that step within its walls.  Nothing in Gabrielle’s design process is generic or contrived, but instead a bold collaboration between client, designer, history and function.

There is an art to the construction and the placement of things which elicits a distinct story of place and person.  For professional designers, this process is very instinctual and organic.  Each selection of color, furnishing and material causes people to react, creating a certain conversation within.  Gabrielle Raven takes clients on a unique design journey to elicit these reactions and actually sense what geometrical forms and placement conjure up in our hearts and minds.

From an entire house renovation to a room addition or redesign, Gabrielle Raven has been providing clients with exceptional service, execution, and extraordinary workmanship since 1996 in both New York City and The Hudson Valley.  If Gabrielle Raven has a signature style it is one that combines seamlessly the drama of the historic with the sleekness of the modern.  Each project embodies her dedication to uncompromising quality and exceptional service.  Central to Ms. Raven’s success and reputation has been her ability to meet deadlines on every project, her ability to maintain long-standing relationships with suppliers and contractors, and her sense of humor and easy manner. [Back]
