Interior Design Process
The Design is developed to create a consistent language of detail that may feature and
honor the historic and iconic elements of the space while responding to the client’s goals for a more
contemporary environment. Scale and dimension is studied in plan and elevation. Sophisticated material
applications, together with a clear focus of message, establish each of Shelley Starr’s signature interiors.
Once the overall design concept for the project has been approved, Shelley Starr and her team prepare
the necessary perspectives, elevations and plans that convey the design intent. Construction Documents
are developed and incorporated into the Drawing Set that is submitted for permit approval and is used
to bid construction estimates and build the project. Drawings include Custom Millwork and Cabinetry
Plans, Lighting Concept Plans, Reflected Ceiling Plans, Electrical, Audiovisual and Data Plans. The
Construction Documents also include the Specifications Schedule that detail all selections in terms of
materials and finishes, plumbing, lighting, hardware and appliance schedules and paint and specialty
wall finish schedules.
