Design Services- Our Process

At Riviera Decor, our highest goal is to provide to you, our client, the finest in custom home décor that will bring you the home of your dreams and great joy for years to come.  


We tailor our designs to meet your needs, your tastes and your constraints.

To begin your design process with Riviera Décor…

Step 1- Initial Contact

Fill out our contact sheet and schedule an appointment, with details of your project and contact information.

We will promptly return your call and discuss the needs of your home and project.  

Step 2- Our On-Site Meeting

Our professionally trained Interior Designers who specialize in Custom Home Decor will meet with you on site.  They will listen to your design preferences, discuss options, measure your space and take pictures.

After the initial appointment and consultation, we will begin the design process.   A design fee is collected at the start of this process for a minimal of 10 hours of design services.  The design fee is credited back at installation at the final payment. 

  • Our design services include a digital 'to scale' rendering.  We will then schedule a  design meeting where all your proposed selections of beautiful fabrics, trims, finishes and accessories are reviewed on the design board.  We will answer any question you may have.  You will know exactly what you are getting and at what price.  Our recommendations are based on various price points for you to decide what brings the most value to you.  In addition, you will see numerous samples of what we are purposing and what our recommendations are based upon.  All the while, we respect it is your decision in the end. 
  • Our renderings are produced in booklet form for our clients, including swatches of fabric based upon designs and selections from our meeting. The booklet is yours to keep and details exactly what you are getting in order to minimize miscommunication.

Step 3- Your Design Appointment

This step has brought our clients delight and has won us a great deal of praise from our clients. 

Following our on-site meeting we will schedule an appointment with you at our studio to review your designs and answer any questions you may have.  We present you with your design booklet that will include three or more designs at different price points.  You can then choose the design that gives you the best value and keep the design booklet in order to guide you in further selections for your room.

We present your design options from your booklet and on our design board.  We will answer any questions you may have.    This way you visualize and fully understand what you are receiving.  We will show you samples of our proposals and recommendations and view our exquisite workmanship and designs in full size.  The beauty of a well design and expertly crafted soft furnishing or upholstered piece is beautiful and exquisite and clearly stands out from the ordinary.

  • A deposit fee of 75% is required to begin your custom furnishings.  Once all supplies have been ordered and received we  schedule your order.  We will provide you with weekly updates and pictures regarding the progress we are making on your design.  You are also welcome to schedule an appointment and view your custom order in production.

Step 4- Installation

Our professional installer will install all your custom treatments and dress them to perfection.  A designer will be at the final installation to ensure everything runs smoothly with no surprises.

Our goal is for you to be totally amazed and see the "WOW" effect and then tell all your friends.

The balance of 25% is due at the installation
