Our full service process:
With any potential and new client, we begin with a consultation to discuss goals, inspiration, budget, and to review the design services provided. Our style gives us the flexibility to work with our clients to ensure they get a unique design that matches their lifestyle needs, vision, and personal style. As a full service firm, we coordinate how the interior design will integrate with the existing or to-be-built architecture, collaborating with our internal team of experts.
Our Denver full service interior design team provides programming, space planning, finishes including floor and wall treatment, plumbing fixtures, lighting fixtures, appliance and accessory selection, as well as furnishings selection, procurement, order tracking, and coordination of installation. Design options, a narrative and material palettes will also be provided in a digital format.
From pre-design to construction administration to installation, R+B aims for transparency in our process by consistently providing clients with detailed information, updates, and education on a regular basis. Below you will find a brief description of our process and what our clients get after their consultation:
- – We create a preliminary design, process diagrams, concepts, plans, and ideas for the space.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is full-service interior design?
Professional full-service interior design includes all aspects of project completion from start to finish, meaning your interior designer will handle everything from the planning and design process to contractor selection and project progress.
What are the services of an interior designer?
While interior design services tend to vary from designer to designer and even between projects, the average interior designer may offer:
- Style planning and design sketches
- Furniture, accessory, and decor selection
- Window and floor treatments
- Color palette coordination
A full-service interior designer may also provide:
- Purchasing and procurement of materials
- Project administration
- Coordination with an architect, contractor, or any other third parties
How do interior designers price their services?
Most interior designers use one of four pricing models:
- Flat design fee: A flat-rate system is exactly what it sounds like. The designer settles on an amount to charge and charges that for every project. Some designers have different rates based on square footage or the scope of work.
- Cost-plus: With cost-plus services, you’re charged the cost of any materials for the design plus a set fee for the designer. The “plus” amount may be fixed or based on a percentage.
- Percentage: Interior designers who use percentage pricing quote projects based on a percentage of the total price of the finished job.
- Hourly: Finally, some designers opt to charge a set hourly rate.
On average, hiring a residential interior design firm will run between $1,000 and $5,000, depending on the size of the space you’re working with. Commercial interior designers generally charge more.
What are the 7 principles of interior design?
The seven principles of interior design are the foundation of any well-planned space and unite to create a harmonious, visually interesting room. They include:
- Balance: Balance requires aligning the visual weight of objects in the space to achieve equilibrium. Designers often use one of three types of balance:
- Symmetrical: Objects on either side of the room mirror one another to create a symmetrical balance of empty space.
- Asymmetrical: One side of the room contains more objects than the other, but the lighter side typically mirrors elements of the heavier side, such as a reoccurring color.
- Radial: With a radial design, everything in the room is balanced around a central point.
- Emphasis: The emphasis of a room is its focus. Where do you want people to look first? Focal points can be anything you like, from a window to an art piece, but should be chosen wisely.
- Contrast: Contrast doesn’t necessarily just apply to color. That’s the first thing many people think of, but you can also create contrast with textures, patterns, lighting, or even décor and style choices so long as the space still has good rhythm.
- Rhythm: Rhythm is vital to the flow of a space. It involves the repetition of elements throughout that carry the eye and design from corner to corner. It may be achieved using colors, patterns, light, lines, or textures.
- Scale and proportion: This principle relates to the size of objects within a space. Scale refers to the size of the objects in a space relative to the size of the room, whereas proportion is the size of the objects relative to other objects. For proper scale and proportion, you wouldn’t want to, say, place a tiny couch in a huge living room or a massive chair next to a tiny table.
- Details: Details may often be the final step of the interior design process, but they play a key role in creating a cohesive space. Most of the principles of design focus on the big picture, the whole space, and everything you see in it. The details are the little things that add personality and interest to interiors.
- Harmony and unity: Harmony is what you get when all the elements of interior design are done right—the end goal of every project. It’s a cohesive space that’s as functional as it is beautiful.
Ideally, your entire home design should have unity as you move from one room to another, even if each room has a drastically different feel. It takes a skilled interior designer to achieve true harmony in a home.
