As interior designers, we know our work deeply affects our clients on multiple levels. Embarking on an interior design project involves a significant investment of time and money. It is a very personal experience; the designed space should reflect and incorporate the personality, values, and aesthetics of those who live in it. And it is a process that requires mutual trust, collaboration, and respect between designers and clients.
The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) understands the powerful impact that interior design can have on the human experience and has created a Code of Ethics & Professional Conduct. As members of ASID, we believe in and abide by these guidelines. We know that operating with integrity and employing open, honest communication is critical to the success of a project.
We believe that operating with integrity means doing the right thing for our clients. We have a deep respect for your investment in the interior design process, both financial and personal, and we are honored to help shape the environment in which you live. Below are three of the ways we fulfill our mission to provide the highest level of professional and ethical service.
One of the most critical aspects of an interior design project is the budget, as it determines the scope and parameters of the entire undertaking. At ADJ Interiors, we create thorough and careful plans based on these numbers and choose trusted vendors and products in order to stay within these limits. One of the fastest ways to derail a budget is by changing architectural plans, finishes, or furnishings without first bringing your designer into the discussion. We want to make sure that our clients’ dollars are being spent wisely – and where they’ll make the most impact. By involving us in any adjustments, we’ll be able to help ensure your budget stays on track.
What you treasure has value
Some interior design firms lead clients to believe that they must discard everything currently being used in a space and start with a blank slate. We take a different approach. We often incorporate personal pieces that our clients already own into our designs. We offer expert suggestions and advice on specific pieces to invest in, such as a signature sofa. We get to know our clients and their tastes, and then craft a space that is a beautiful reflection of who they are – not who we are!
Interior design is deeply personal
We consider it a privilege to be invited into the spaces where our clients live. Our focus is always on infusing the vision and personality of our clients into their surroundings. We believe a room should tell the story of those who live in it, and it should be a beautiful space in which to create future memories. Our work is not about trying to win awards or accolades; it is about being inspired by our clients and creating spaces they love. We’ve found that when we do this, the awards that come are a secondary benefit!
At ADJ, operating with integrity informs everything we do. We recognize the impact our work has on the lives of others and treat every project and every client with the utmost care and respect.
