This week, we’re continuing to follow Beyond Beige lead designer Reisa as she goes about an average day on the job. Be sure to check out Part 1 if you haven’t seen it yet!
As Reisa’s busy day continues, we find her in a penthouse that is being built in Coal Harbour, Vancouver BC. Being a designer isn’t just about picking paint, wallpaper, and upholstery for a room — in Reisa’s case it means working closely with contractors, and being involved with designing a space right from its construction. Reisa draws on her 20+ years of industry experience to communicate with workers and stakeholders at all stages of the building and design process in order to achieve the best possible results.
Reisa puts her clients first — a value that is shared by everyone at Beyond Beige Interior Design. Whether over the phone, in-person, or via Zoom, Reisa likes to stay in constant communication with all of her clients. Though Reisa can guide her clients through the design process with her experience and expertise, final aesthetic decisions are ultimately in their hands. This is why it’s so important for Reisa to sit down with clients and let them see and feel each material so they know exactly how it will look in their home.
Once she’s finished talking on the phone, we see Reisa performing a final inspection of a beautiful finished space. This Vancouver condo is furnished with countertops, cabinets, tiling and a colour palette all hand-picked by Reisa and the team at Beyond Beige, and we’re very proud to show it off. At the end of each project, Reisa does a walk-through inspection to ensure that everything looks exactly the way the client wants. Finally, Reisa leaves a beautiful fresh orchid and a “Welcome Home” card to help make the client feel at home and leave them with a welcoming first impression of the space.
At Beyond Beige, we’re all about customer relationships and experiences. We want our clients to feel good inside their new homes. Each touch that Reisa adds throughout the process helps the final product feel more personalized.
We hope you’ve enjoyed accompanying Reisa through a day in her Real Life! Be sure to share the video with your friends, and contact Beyond Beige Interior Design for your next interior design project.
