Our process

We offer two main categories of design consultation packages: Foundational and build-your-own. Each of these package categories follow a three-step process and are designed to help you reimagine your space and lay the framework for a fresh new look.

All foundational design packages progress through three basic phases:

1) The Initial Consultation          2) The Design Portfolio          3) The Project List

Phase #1:

Initial Consultation

Share your hopes, dreams, wants, and needs with Pen and Paper Design Co.


We will ask you some questions about your room use needs and design preferences and will use this conversation to help us create a custom Design Portfolio to launch your project.

Phase #2:

Design Portfolio

The Design Portfolio is your customized series of creative solutions and personalized ideas for altering your space. Think of it as an expertly guided mood-board that we can use to further discuss your ideal project result.

After you review the Design Portfolio, we will coordinate a check in to narrow down the options into a singular cohesive Project List that guides you through your space transformation.

Phase #3:

Project List

Call it a To Do List and knock it out in a weekend, or call it a Project List and mosey through it at your own pace. Whatever you call it, the Project List is your road map to actions that will check-off the design goals of your project.


We will deliver a list of action-items that, when combined, will shift your space from its past life to your reimagined space that previously only lived in the Design Portfolio. The Project List works to combine your favorite ideas from the Design Portfolio and work them into a singular cohesive space.
