Dana Foster Interiors is a full service interior design firm specializing in residential properties and estates, both regionally and nationally. We specialize in new construction and renovation properties and our full range of services span everything from design conceptualization, project oversight, and fine furnishings to art curation and installation.

Our one-on-one service ensures each client’s experience is highly personal. We offer creative solutions that inspire our clientele and offer guidance that simplifies the overall design process. With our creative expertise in design and our experience working with construction teams, we approach each project with respect for the steps it takes to implement the design and build. By having regular meetings with our clients and utilizing every design tool at our disposal—from hand-drawn sketches to 3D renderings and virtual reality—we convey the design to all teams to ensure the vision, scope, and cost of the project is defined prior to implementation.

design process


We break down our first Discovery phase into two in-person consultations during which we focus on exploring our client’s preferences, motivations, habits, interests, and needs. Through our systematic questioning and visual storytelling presentations, we are able to better identify your design aesthetic. During this phase we define the dream, brainstorm ideas, evaluate space, establish timelines and financial goals, and clarify the overall vision.

2. schematic design

The second phase is where we focus on creating conceptual design schemes that tell the story of the project. This may include inspiration images, inspired sketches, plan evaluation, space planning, furnishing layouts, preliminary material and finish selection, furnishing styles, and color palette options. Think of it as a dynamic mood board for your project. In this phase, client feedback is of the utmost importance.

3. design development

Our third phase is where we meet with you and your team to discuss the feasibility of the vision. Together, we refine the conceptual design. Common refinements include plan alterations, material and equipment selections and/or furnishing and artwork options. Dana Foster Interiors further develops interior drawings including hand sketches, detailed plans, and two- and three-dimensional renderings.

4. construction documentation

Once we’ve visualized the concept, we move onto the Construction Documentation phase, which entails the working drawings, details, and written specifications necessary for your architecture and construction team to estimate costs and build your project. Your project package becomes your manual and record of the project. In working with the construction team, we ensure that we have a cohesive and coordinated design throughout all phases.

5. project oversight

During the Project Oversight phase, we act as your professional liaison, carry out design goals, and coordinate with the project team to ensure smooth delivery of goods and services and flawless integration. Dana Foster Interiors prepares cost estimates, projected timelines, value-engineers products and services when necessary, as well as overseeing product installation. Our full project oversight includes frequent job site visits for quality control and client satisfaction.
