Tasty Designs

Design brings people together.

Cooking brings people together.

The team at Decca Design Inc. can be found gathered together around the lunch table. We love sharing our weekend experiences or our latest culinary adventures.

It was on one of those occasions that first sparked the idea of creating our own cookbook. We enjoy cooking, eating and entertaining! We embrace the idea of gathering with our friends and family, sharing a meal and engaging in good old fashion conversation.

There is no shortage of recipes and entertaining ideas. We thought we would take this opportunity to share our latest food finds and entertaining designs.

Happy Cooking!

 

What feeds us as a Design Group?

What feeds us as a Design Group?

At Decca Design Inc., we love to cook!  To us it is a means to interact with each other, express our gratitude and inspire better design.

As a creative group, we can be found taking a cooking class together, exchanging recipes and indulging in our culinary efforts.

Cooking as a team allows us to step outside of our normal interactions and engage with each other.

  • We connect with our teammates
  • We overcome new challenges
  • we celebrate the fruits of our labors

The occasions nurture our team health and are times of gratitude. We would like to share a recipe from our cookbook “Tasty Designs” and encourage you to share with us “What’s on your Design Mind?”

Happy Cooking!

Decca Design’s Secret Sauce: The 7 Step Design Process

Step 1 Initial Consultation and Expectations

How it works

After a short Design Exploration Call, we proceed to the initial consultation. This is the perfect opportunity to sit down with a cup of coffee and discuss how Decca Design Inc. can transform your space. We want to explore your wants and needs and the challenges we will work through together. Each project is unique and important and we want to bring your vision to life in a beautiful, efficient space.

Our gift to you: the initial consultation is complimentary!

How we manage our client’s needs and expectations

Like any kind of relationship, we need to be on the same page to be successful! We want to get an idea of how we can help you create the space you’re dreaming of, and understand what your vision and budget are. For this relationship to work, we need to have a firm understanding of what we can create within your specific budget limitations. With over 20 years of experience, we have successfully completed a wide range of projects; from budget-friendly to the-sky-is-the-limit! No matter what your budget is, we will never sacrifice on creativity.

“The team at Decca Design were able to identify our unique ‘style’ immediately. The initial meetings were organized and kept on track which resulted in easily made decisions!” – RC

The benefits of step 1 

Our top priority is creating a space that is uniquely yours. Our expertise and open communication create working spaces that alleviate your design frustrations and build healthy working relationships. Through collaboration, we provide custom, luxury services to deliver your one-of-a-kind dream space.

After we have agreed on the budget, timeline and outcomes, we will complete a formal proposal outlining each stage of the project.

Once the proposal gets your approval, we’ll move on to step 2!

Make your house feel like a home or transform your business space into an efficient inspiring place to work. Whatever your space is used for, we can make your interior design dreams come true. Let us show you how our 7 step design process will meet and exceed your needs and expectations!

A Wednesday Wisdom

A Wednesday Wisdom

Let’s put life in perspective with some short pieces of wisdom!

Wise and beautiful words from positive thinkers will get you in the right mindset to tackle whatever obstacles lie ahead.

Re-framing negative thoughts during tough times and changing your attitude so you feel refreshed and motivated really works.

Whether you’re hoping to achieve success at work, home, or life in general, establishing the right intentions can help you stay positive and optimistic during the challenges fate can throw your way.

Embrace what you can control and let go of what you can’t — a helpful approach when you’re feeling anxious or overwhelmed, unmotivated, challenged or just want to celebrate life!

No matter what you’re feeling or experiencing, here’s hoping a Wednesday Wisdom can help you get where you want to go.

What’s on your Design Mind!

Decca Design Inc. – 20th Anniversary

Decca Design Inc. – 20th Anniversary

Where has the time gone?

 

 

It is hard to believe that it has been 20 years since Decca Design Inc. first opened its doors.

The journey has allowed us to enhance your homes and businesses and build lifelong relationships. And for that we are truly grateful.

Many changes have taken place over this time period. We have been able to expand our team, our portfolio and our community.

The original focus was residential design which quickly evolved into commercial design and later into a specialized niche in medical/dental design.

We continue to support the Purses of Hope as an outreach to help women in need and our way of giving back to our community.

This anniversary brings a time of reflection and an excitement for the opportunities to establish new goals and continue to help people live their best lives in ideal personalized surroundings.

We have reached this milestone with a great family of support.

 

Our clients: We wish to extend our sincere appreciation for trusting us with your space and allowing us to help you realize your ideas.

 

Our team members: It is with your dedication, support and continual creativity that we can reach new targets and impact more lives.

 

Our suppliers and contractors: You embody the spirit of teamwork. We admire your commitment, integrity and the quality workmanship you deliver on each project.

 

 

We are excited to create amazing and inspiring spaces for years to come.

Check out our website at www.decca-design.com for our latest successes.

Above all else…

Thank you!

Why does the Decca Design team love design?

Judi says “I love design because it is all around us!  It inspires us; we become aware of doing things in a different way. Creativity flows!”

Her passion inspires further business development and marketing efforts at Decca Design Inc. Judi is an outdoor enthusiast enjoying hiking and biking and extensive travel.

 

 

 

 

Katherine is the first friendly contact in your communications with Decca Design Inc.  She too has a creative interest in cooking, biking and traveling. 

When asked “what design means to her she had this to say: “I love collaborating with our team in choosing color and specifications for both the aesthetic and functionality aspects.  One of my favorite past times is spent on the Houzz website and poring over Home Decor magazines.  The greatest part of all is to hear that our clients love their spaces!”

 

 

All team members share the same values and commitment to excellence.  Their efforts do not go unnoticed in the detailed assembly of each Decca Design Inc. project.

We appreciate hearing your thoughts and “What’s on your Design Mind”?

Why does the Decca Design Team love design?

As the two most senior members of the Decca Design Inc. team, both Jenn and Jann have been invaluable to the growth and experience of our firm.

Jenn Cross believes:

“Design is fluid.  It is ever changing and no two designs are ever the same.  It opens the opportunity for expression and allows us to take someone’s vision and turn it into a reality.  Sometimes the end result even surprises us! I am proud to be part of this industry.”

She enjoys entertaining and traveling when not at work and like most team members she enjoys the art of cooking.

 

 

 

 

Jann too is no stranger to the kitchen.

The team can be found discussing their latest adventures in the kitchen or exc

hanging recipes over lunch.  She has recently found a new attraction to Pickle Ball to compliment her golfing and traveling excursions.  While Jann manages the accounting components of your design project, this does not lessen her love of design.

“I love that design can be handled by the professionals!  I am happy and trusting in their ideas for my space! It is never boring being a part of this design team.”

Until next time –  let us know “What’s on your Design Mind?”
