Jodi Peterman started the company in New Jersey in 2003, today we have a team of four interior designers at Elizabeth Erin Designs with over 30 years of combined experience. We pride ourselves on being able to work with any design style you may have. We believe most clients don’t fall into one specific interior design style. Our designers are trained to ask specific questions to pull out information needed to help you achieve your vision and find your overall aesthetic. We use that information to get creative and blend design styles to create harmony between your personal palettes. We are in contact with our vendors on design trends in both finishes and furniture to stay up to date. We also belong to local, national, and international design groups to make sure we are bringing innovative ideas to our clients.
Our design clients start out with a complimentary 30-minute consultation with our CEO, Jodi Peterman, virtually. In this consultation, she will ask questions and gather information on your project so she can understand the scope of your project and how you would like Elizabeth Erin Designs involved. Jodi will also explain more about how we work with our clients throughout the design process since it is different from other interior design firms. Within 48 hours of your consultation, our office will send you a proposal for the project scope as discussed. This proposal will include customized pricing package options based on your consultation. Once you receive the proposal, you can request any adjustments to the scope of the package and/or make your package selection. When a package is agreed upon, our office will send you an invoice and contract. After we receive the signed contract and initial deposit payment, an interior design team will be assigned to your project and you will be introduced via email. From the signed contract to the presentation of your design, the time frame is generally three-four weeks depending upon your project scope.
One of the best ways we can ensure a stress-free design process is to make sure we are working with our clients well before they have ordered anything for their project. We want to make sure our clients are very clear on the products we are recommending, the overall design concepts, and how the design will all come together. We make all design selections, complete floor plans, electrical plans, and all renderings needed. We compile all this information into three documents that will be put into your Dropbox folder. Upon approval, the documents can be sent to a builder/remodeler of your choice to obtain clear and specific bids for the actual design choices selected. As opposed to, working off general budget numbers. Once the bids come back, adjustments can be made to the selections. We call this the EED process, the Ensured Eased Design process. We have found that this process is the best way that our homeowner’s minds can be put at ease during the design process and assist them to achieve their vision!
