“We shape our homes and then our homes shape us.”

Our secret sauce is all in the details. We’ll expertly guide you in Design Evaluation, Project scope, Budget, Design Development, finding the right Contractors or Vendors, and if you’re selling… Staging, to get you the most out of your home ownership investment.
Our mission is to create designs tailored to our clients’ unique personal styles and practical needs. Letting you lead the way, we believe in consistently fulfilling expectations through collaboration and exceptional service. Beauty doesn’t have to cost a fortune or take a century to create. Home is where the heart is and we take the opportunity to work with our clients to heart as well.
STEP 1 | DESIGN EVALUATION
The first step in the process is a meeting at your home with our team. We go top to bottom and front to back, putting together a plan to maximize your home’s emotional components, and top sales potential. Our evaluation encompasses interior and exterior colors, condition of floors, kitchens to bathrooms, landscapes to living rooms, lighting, and more.
STEP 2 | PROJECT SCOPE + BUDGET
After the in-home consultation and once we have a signed listing agreement, the design team begins refining the project scope, help you put together contractor and vendor bids, as well as help estimate material costs. Before any project begins, we compile the bids and costs on a spreadsheet that we then personally review with you.
STEP 3 | DESIGN DEVELOPMENT
Now begins the transformation and re-imagination of your home! During this phase we go from day dreaming to providing detailed specifications for the vendors or contractors you have chosen. Depending on the scope of your project, the team may provide…
— Mood boards with recommendations for colors, lighting, cabinetry, tile, fixtures, etc.
— Detailed floor plans, elevations, or 3D plans
— Exterior color mock-ups and landscaping plans
STEP 4 | CONSTRUCTION AND INSTALLATION
Once the planning, sketching, and site visits, vendor/contractor work and updates begin! Throughout this phase, we help you with the initial coordination of the contractors and vendors.
STEP 5 | STAGING
The finishing touch! We partner with some of the Bay Area’s top staging companies to make your home look not only chic and current but comfortable, warm and inviting as well. Homes with staging spend 78%* less time on the market. Doing it right with Cush promises the best return on your investment!
