Getting Started
We want your home or your business to reflect YOU. We want to hear about your passions and what inspires you! Client collaboration is a key part of our design process. Together we will create inspiration boards and gather ideas. Once we have a strong understanding of your personal style, we design a space that you will love!

Next Steps
Your design project has many moving parts! We manage everything from design concepts to construction documents to ensure your dream space becomes a reality. Once we have your floor plans and details fully drawn in our system we source everything for your project!

Initial Design Options
To make the selection process easier, our team procures options and items discussed with you in a simple, clean format. We ensure our clients only order items that will fit their space and invest in pieces they will love for years to come!

Working Drawings and Approvals
Projects are often subject for approvals, especially in New York City! We create full architectural drawings for approval with the NYC Department of Buildings and your building management. These drawings will also help installer, contractors, and vendors to give you the most accurate pricing and have a roadmap for the work.


Construction & Project Management
We love it when clients are involved, but not everyone has time in their busy schedules! We are a very hands on team and thoroughly enjoy the management phase. We are here to make sure your project is completed correctly and beautifully! Let us handle the hard work!

Communication Is Key!
Whether you live in Manhattan or overseas, our design team will keep you up to date with reports, videos and photos of the process.

Styling and Accessorizing
Our motto at Designs by Human is #detailsmatter.  While the overall space definitely matters, so do the finishing touches.  From art procurement, accessories, and pillows to bedding and books, we will do it all to make sure that everything is just right.

Installation Day(s)
This is when we work our magic putting it all together for you. Your design concept becomes a beautiful reality! Our favorite moments are when the client is able to finally see the stunning result of all of our hard work and attention to detail.
