Designing the interior of a brand new home requires a great deal of coordination within a firm. However, meeting deadline and achieving a competent result does not mean much if the homeowner isn't happy.

For Martin Horner and Shea Soucie at interior design firm Soucie Horner, regular meetings with homeowners ensure both the firm and its clients are on the same page when undertaking a project.

"The relationship with the client is the most important to our firm. We need to know and understand what they want in order to come up with a design that fulfills their wishes," says Soucie.

The project pictured on these pages was a brand new residence, which Soucie Horner was required to design and fit out. Soucie says the firm finds this type of project the most satisfying.

"Millwork, casework, color scheme, painting and materials all were specified by us. A new construction like this is what I call an A-grade project we not only design the box, but we fill it too."

Soucie Horner generally completes a 5-6 month design process, during which the client is heavily involved. Then, while helping to facilitate construction, the firm works on the furniture design.

"When a design team develops a project from start through to finish, there is one thought process involved, meaning a consistent final result," says Horner.
