Timeless. Classic. Elegant.

 

BWID is a full-service Interior Design Firm specializing in elegant and livable high-end residential projects throughout the world. Our interiors reflect the lifestyles and tastes of our clients, in any style or size. Our services range from full turn-key "dirt to linens" design of a custom home, to a simple refresh of your primary or vacation residence.

 

We believe the Interior Designer plays a very important role in making each space contribute to a calmer mental state, a more peaceful existence, a richer experience, a fonder memory, and a healthier life, by making the environment the best it can be.

 

Our team is dedicated to creating the perfect space that meets your needs, both aesthetically and practically. We listen carefully to the needs of our clients; providing value, attention to quality, and timeless spaces that are even more than they imagined.

 

For over 35 years BWID has provided reasonable solutions to design dilemmas and responsible utilization of our client's budgets.


 What We Do

Programming  

Our design process starts with meetings with the client, architect, landscape designer, and contractor to gather information about the project, listen carefully to the client's wishes and dreams as well as the challenges they may have with each space, and talk about their budget. 

Architectural Design Development

The project concept is derived from our client's lifestyle, needs, and wish list, and the architecture and feeling of the home. We gather ideas for flooring materials, wall surfaces, ceiling details, wood and stone finishes, cabinetry, and exterior finishes.

Construction Documentation

Next we define and design all of the interior architectural elements of the project: doors and windows; mill work; cabinetry; fireplace surrounds; staircases; plumbing fixtures; light fixtures; appliances; and hardware. We compile specification information for the client and contractor, and finalize Auto CAD drawings for bidding purposes and execution of all interior details.

Materials Specification

We then specify materials for all interior surfaces: walls, floors, ceilings, cabinets, bathrooms and kitchens, and fireplace surrounds. We are as involved as the client wishes in the selection or approval of any exterior materials.

Construction

Periodic visits are made to the job site during construction. We attend meetings with the contractor, architect, and sub-contractors to ensure that our vision is being executed, as well as making any necessary on-site design decisions.

Interior Decor Design Development

An interior color palette is determined, and furniture placement is finalized. Entry and egress to each space is verified, as well as the direction of any natural light, and correct proportion, scale, and balance of every room. Functional design elements are reviewed to ensure ease of use.

With client feedback, we fine-tune furniture selections. A master budget is established and reviewed. All interior finishes are selected: wall coverings; window coverings; fabrics; rugs; and decorative lighting; to create a highly personalized interior.

Purchasing

Once all items are approved by the client, we generate purchase orders for the various vendors. Orders are verified for accuracy, and checked for timely completion and shipping. Once ready to ship, the items are inventoried and consolidated by our delivery company, Designers Delivery Service.

Installation

After construction is completed, decorative lighting, floor coverings, wall paper and faux finishes are completed. The next Installations include window coverings, furniture and rug placement, art hanging, accessorizing, and any outfitting of closets and cabinets.

Completion

Finally, we conduct a walk-through to ensure no details have been overlooked. Punch lists are completed and your home ready for you to start a new chapter of your life in your fabulous new space!
