  • 1. Initial Consultation
    Ms J STUDIO offers a complimentary meeting to discuss and understand your project. During this meeting, we will ask you about your ideal wish list, desired aesthetic, and approximate budget.

    After the initial consultation, we will create a comprehensive proposal that specifies the range of services, estimated hours, and project timeline.

    We will review the floor layout plans along with the general design concepts. Ms J STUDIO will provide inspirational image boards and overall color schemes. Once the layout plan is approved and we review feedback on the conceptual design, we will develop colored elevations or schematic computer rendering to visualize your actual space.
