ABOUT SUBLIME INTERIOR DESIGNS:
Using both creative and innovative ideas while revisiting the many periods that made design what it is today, I believe in a real hands-on type of design where I or my team is knowledge based in everything from A to Z when accepting a project. This allows for fair bidding and an honest approach to time working with all aspects of the team to correctly convey what will and will not work successfully. Firm believer in keeping the client updated thru steady flow using skills such as planning and providing quick turnaround to each meeting’s punch list. I believe in implementing the classic "design process" interior designers have practiced over the decades that unites the true trifecta of architecture, construction and design together to successfully complete any project. The proven success in leading multifunctional teams to achieve project goals and achieving a high-degree of client satisfaction.
ABOUT THE TEAM:
SENIOR DESIGNER/ DIRECTOR OF DESIGN
SUNSHINE D. TUTT, ASID
Both Los Angeles and Dallas based Director of Design, Sunshine Tutt, leads the team with 11 years of experience in the field creating and designing both boutique and high-end luxury spaces that include large scale residential, commercial and hospitality projects. Her goals and objectives are to design to inspire, commitment to innovation and knowledge and application of all elements that are sourced conventionally as well as sourcing worldwide. Be it emerging talent and artists or simply finding a unique material or unique use for existing materials, design is my passion and my one great love.
I wake up to each day dedicating myself to changing the limits and rules while holding dear all the classics that have made design what it is today, while always wanting my design to be thought provoking and evoke emotion to all who view it.
"Attitude affects everything you do, the way you sketch, put together a room, and even the way you visually communicate with people. It's so important to live in color! Using color is a proven natural stress reliever.”
“ Design should take us places and transform us, inspire us, as well as create a space that can effortlessly combine opulence and luxury with simplistic classic style...always creating a comfortable home space for all to enjoy for years to come.”

This questionaire is our first step in understanding your needs, providing guidance, and igniting the design vision for your existing home or the one you've dreamed about constructing.
During this initial meeting, we will discuss your design needs, tastes, style, likes, dislikes and the scope of the project. We will determine our level of involvement and how to proceed We even have a perfect method for quickly defining your design style and preferences. Important details such as projected timelines and budgetary goals will be discussed and by the end of this meeting, we will recommend a plan that aligns with all your design needs and goals that we have discussed.
Whether engaged in raising a family, flourishing careers, traveling the world, or in the midst of important life transitions, trusting your project to our skilled hands allows you to receive the most personalized level of our turn-key service. The end result delivers lovely and meaningful spaces; room-by-room - your custom design experience.
This option has similar parallels to our full-service process in regard to the degree of the detail in decision-making and project reviews .We team up with some of the best vendors and contractors in our area to source tile, cabinets, fixtures, moldings and all related services to provide the ultimate combination of performance and beauty. Exterior and interior solutions are included. We’ll review everything from start to finish.
These include all services that can be bundled from creation of design boards, rendering, selection of fabric or materials, finishes, carpet or rugs, window coverings, art selection, custom hardware or fixtures, custom furniture design, space planning, seasonal design or project management.
Below is a list of standard fees and options but keep in mind we will always work with you to tailor a plan and fee structure that meets your design goals while meeting your budget.
Our fees are based on several key factors including time, talent, experience, quality of resources and services available. There are several fee schedule options after that, depending on the nature of your project and our level of involvement. We will work together to determine the best fee plan for your needs.
This is a fee determined after evaluating your design needs, formulating a project plan and working with your budget. We will provide a flat rate fee for the services. Unless the scope of the project changes, we will not exceed that budget.
You have the option of paying an hourly rate of $150.00 per hour for a principal designer on site and $75.00 per hour projected research hours and preparation hours. Assistant/Jr. Designer hourly rates are billed at $40.00 an hour. We will provide an estimate on how many hours we anticipate the project taking. This is the most common method and always used with E-Design projects.
One Time Fee
A one-time fee may be used if you require a color consultation, space planning for one room, lighting or materials selection. This method is common in new construction, or remodeling projects where the client needs design guidance. Our consultation fee for this is $500 for 3 hours and $150.00 for every hour thereafter.
A 20% retainer is required to initiate work on the project. The retainer amount is based on the estimated total investment of the project. Retainers are applied to the final billing. Pre-payment is requested for all product purchases.
Sales Order Policy
We require 50% down on the purchase of all materials, furniture, fixtures and accessories prior to placing a sales order.
