Services

Interior Design

We offer complete design services from conceptualization to installation, leading clients through our straightforward turn-key approach. This includes plans, furniture selection, customized interior solutions and working in collaboration with your contractor during the construction phase.

Artwork Integration

Art is our specialty. Our job isn’t complete until every piece is in place. We design for the specific needs of your collection and while respecting its communicative value. This includes specialized lighting, framing, customized display and storage, wall hanging systems, casework and storage for fine objects, installation and more.

Household Transitions

Many of our clients are moving back to the city to enjoy the luxuries and perks of urban living. We actively manage such transitions to ensure an effortless experience to this new phase in life. Adjusting for the needs of a smaller footprint often requires careful considerations that we are quite sensitive to.

Custom Furnishings

We design, detail and coordinate the fabrication of anything walls-in. This includes custom upholstery and furniture, case goods, built-in cabinetry, decorative moldings, exquisite soft furnishings like window treatments and soft walls, or anything else we can dream.

Home Automation

Our team of industry experts offer you a premium automation experience that will change the way you enjoy your home. This includes comprehensive home theater, entertainment, music, lighting and shade control, security, temperature control and security integrated with the current yet extendible technology.

Consultations

Each design project that Platemark accepts begins with an on-site two-hour working meeting. This is ideal both for clients who are ready to kick-start a project or for a one-time visit which can solve a design dilemma, offer objective opinion and provide concrete direction.

Design Consultation

This meeting will begin by working to understand your needs and to quickly establish how you can get the most out of our collaboration. We will provide you with site-specific advice, guide you room by room to answer any questions you have about the house—interior or exterior. No questions are off limits!

During that time, we will work together to develop a scope of work that outlines suggestions for you to act on following the consultation.

The Consultation Summary that we create, outlining the scope of work and suggestions is yours to keep at the summation of the consultation.

Some examples you might like to review: furniture placement, artwork display, location of built-ins and cabinetry, window treatments, fabric choices, flooring, paint colors and suggestions regarding new construction and renovations.

Full Service Design Project

Full service means creating a turn-key design for your project, from initial concept to the final installation. It is about letting our team handle all the details from research to selection, purchasing and quality assurance to installation. Full service applies to a full room or group of rooms or an entire home in a single installation.

More specific to the needs of your project, we will review the scope of work and can answer your design questions as we work through the home room by room. We will offer you specific, on-the-spot recommendations for improvements, depending on your needs. This could include any of the following, which is completely up to you:

Floor Plans + Furniture Placement
Artwork Display  +  Lighting
Window Treatments  +  Floors and Floor Coverings
Home Automation  + Technology
Cabinetry + Millwork + Built-ins
Kitchens and Baths
Color Selections
Interior Architectural Changes
Answer questions about the new construction and renovations

By the conclusion of this meeting, your project will have been launched and we will establish a design and execution plan that’s ready to go.

Happy Clients

Exactitude

Have you ever sat in a room and thought, ‘this room looks like me and feels like me…..it is me.’ That is how I feel every time I enter my master bedroom, thanks to Craig Tevolitz of Platemark Design. Of course, Craig asked all the right questions to determine what features I need in the room, what my favorite colors are, etc. But every bit as important as that was the fact that he delved specifically into how I wanted the room to make me feel when I’m in it. He listened very carefully and he heard me. I know this because the very first design option he presented nailed it! Only minor tweaking was necessary. From there, Craig managed all aspects of the project to my complete satisfaction. It mattered to Craig that I was completely happy with his work, that he had created the experience I was looking for in my room. He has an amazing and enviable sense of style, beauty, and exactitude. It’s clear that he loves what he does. And so do I!

Depth of Knowledge

Using Platemark Design to re-design our condo was absolutely the best decision we made during our re-build. I seriously cannot speak more highly of their professionalism, taste level, responsiveness, and depth of knowledge. Dealing with contractors can be a nightmare, but with Craig’s help we ended up with exactly what we wanted. I would recommend Platemark to anyone I know, and will 100% use them again.
