Bloom Design Group was founded upon the idea of helping clients create spaces that reflect who they are; homes that are more personal than perfect, and more loved than simply lived in. Offices that reveal core branding, and function in unison with the users and clients that visit them.
We create spaces that speak your language.

Design comes in many forms. Details of the process may differ based upon your individual needs, but we always follow the same steps to arrive at success on your behalf.
Usually over a phone chat we’ll talk general needs, ideas and requirements, budgets and timelines. It’s here that we get a feel for each other and decide if we are a good fit to work together. We want to understand the reasons why you need us. If we like each other – we gather more information.
We want to meet you and learn what a successful project means to you. Respecting your family’s needs and lifestyle, we seek to understand your home life. How you entertain, or if you don’t. What’s currently working and what’s not. Your anticipated outcome and aesthetic preferences. How involved you want to be in the process. Or not. It’s here that together we clearly define the scope of work required to complete your project so that we can create a fee proposal for you. After you agree, we really dig in. Now we generate the vision and concepts. Collaborating with architects, contractors, and tradespeople as needed, space is planned and drawn up. Preliminary materials are selected and presented. Cabinets and hardware identified. Fixtures and appliances researched. Furnishings, wall coverings and fabrics pulled for consideration. Architectural millwork and elements calculated. Lighting requirements identified. Concepts are all presented for approval and reselections and changes are made to further refine the plan. Finally, it’s time to roll. Development of the approved conceptual design forms the conclusive strategy for implementation. Specifications of all decisions are written. Budgets are formalized.
Here we share the details with trades or staff who can make this beauty happen. Working drawings, elevations, and all important details are finalized in a plan that has everything needed to implement your project. You approve; we make your home speak your language.
Yes. During this time you will benefit immediately from our experience, resources & training. From the minute we enter your home or work space, we begin to capture ways to help you avoid many of the common and costly mistakes that can easily be made when executing an interior design project. The fee for this service is $350. If you decide to proceed with further design services, the initial consultation fee is always a part of the process and will be credited into our letter of agreement for your project.
A consultation will pay for itself many times over. We promise.
We offer our “Ask the Designer” service where you bring any questions, concerns, or confusions out for brainstorming results. During this meeting at your location, just ask your Designer anything that comes to mind and discuss the things that have been causing you pain in your home or office. This is a useful time for specific questions or small projects such as: space planning, area rug, accessory and furniture or fabric selections, art locations, lighting, finish selections, interior or exterior paint colors, move planning, and other similar tasks. Affordable and incredibly informative, this service is a must if you’re ready for a fast-paced, results-driven meeting. The cost of this service is $350 for the first 2 hours, and $150 per hour for every hour after that.
Our experience is deep and wide. We have been hired by homeowners who have started from the ground up to build their dream home. The services provided have been broad, including developing the entire feeling, function and flow of the home. We excel at space planning and can develop and provide complete sets of drawings from permit submittal sets to construction drawings and documentation. We are delighted to work as a memberof the team and often assist the Architect, if one is involved. We are masters at selecting and providing all types of interior specifications for integration into the construction documents. We can select, design and procure furnishings, and we follow the project through to completion until the clients move in. We are known for our good working relationships with the project teams and always surpass our clients' expectations.
We have been contracted with many commercial institutions, too. From developing retail spaces that speak their branding, to recreating headquarters of corporations that provide a good working environment for their employees. We also have come along side staff at senior living campuses to refresh the facilities for the benefit of their residents.
We love all the different types of projects that we’ve been blessed to be a part of. It is our goal to excel at all aspects of interior design for both residential and commercial projects. Contact us for a consultation, today!
Generally, we keep our nights and weekends for our families but occasionally we make exceptions to that rule to accommodate a special need or a tight deadline. If our meeting doesn’t require a site visit, we are happy to meet in your office over lunch, or skype.
Yes, that is a service we provide. There are many ways that furnishings implementation can be coordinated for your project, and the right answer will be based upon your desires. Our services may provide a complete furnishings specifications package, that includes all the products being ordered, delivered and installed for you. Or we may simply provide the manpower to execute your own furniture selections. Any way you decide, we promise you will be delighted with our service.
After we meet with you and we have determined what services are required to achieve your goals and fully understand what you value most for your projects outcome, we develop a Flat Fee proposal that fits your goals and the services that we are to provide. Our clients love this fee structure because they know up front exactly how much their interior design services will cost, and know that the project will not exceed that amount unless they decide to change the scope of work.
Mistakes are costly. The wrong material selected for your kitchen counter tops can last a lifetime, which can be way too long if it doesn’t look good with the backsplash or perform as it needs to.
Frustration can escalate. Multiple trips to the paint store because the color doesn’t look the same on the walls as it did in the little square sample is defeating.
Planning is time consuming. It takes countless hours to plan layouts that work, select the correct materials for the application, decide on the casework details and hardware, find the right scale furnishings, select the best fabrics for the applications and find the workroom to make the drapery. Many of our clients are busy professionals who don’t have the time or desire to do this themselves, and don’t have the resources to find the vendors, subcontractors and trades to implement the design and selections.
Unique is hard to find. Cookie cutter is the new norm, which leaves your space looking like everyone else’s. Finding inventive & practical solutions is a skill acquired with time and training.
"I count my blessings every day that I met you and you pulled this remarkable team of people together to guide me through this process and make it so much fun. Like you, the crew also make me feel like I'm the most important client they have. That is a rare gift."
"You bring me energy and vision, and you are one of my favorite women I have met in my life."
"Thanks so much for helping us transform our dreams into
reality. Your creative ideas and eye for the “awesome” is truly a marvel and inspiration."
—RANDY & PAULA G.
"As a residential remodeler, we had the pleasure to work with Cheryl on a home renovation in the Seattle vicinity. Cheryl was great to work with! Her interior design talents include sensitivity to color, a keen spacial awareness, and attention to the small details. It was apparent to us that Cheryl not only met, but exceeded her client’s expectations. Cheryl was always receptive
to our ideas when presented, and was not dismissive just because of our primary project role (contractor versus designer). The project maintained a positive atmosphere even when presented with project challenges, and all challenges were brought to successful resolutions. Overall, the project was a success for the client, the design team and the contractor. In today’s world, a lot of groups and organizations use the key words to sell their work to their clients. But actions speak louder than words, and we believe Cheryl’s actions truly foster a"team build" spirit.
We look forward to working with Cheryl, and the Bloom Design Group on the future projects!"
—JEFF PULLAR, 36 AVE DESIGN BUILD
"Cheryl has worked with us on three different homes and my professional office over the past twenty years. It never fails to amaze us how she can pick out "just the right" shade of white (amongst the 100s available) and the precise accent color to totally change a drab and ordinary room into something spectacular. Her ability to sense what we are looking for despite our inability to be able to express our needs precisely, at times, has been invaluable. No one deals with a professional for more than twenty years unless his or her interactions have been more than satisfying and fruitful. And it has been that and much more."
"Cheryl's eye for design and color are amazing! She took what I found to be an overwhelming, huge white canvas (the entire
interior of my home) and turned it into the warmest, most inviting place I've ever lived. She interpreted my personal style even when I wasn't able to. She honored my feedback and input, recommended high quality installation professionals and followed through on every last detail. I'd hire Cheryl again
"Blessings to you, my
Design Angel. Thank you."
"This is a brilliant design given the limitations we’re both working with…space and money. I LOVE it!!! You’re a genius…"
"Cheryl listens. She heard us when we shared the mood and experience we wanted in our home; she heard us when we said we don’t particularly like to shop (and we get overwhelmed by too many choices) and hoped she could narrow things down for us. When we had ideas she carefully and appreciatively listened and sometimes whole heartedly adopted them and sometimes gently and respectfully got us to see the value in going a different direction. She knows products and has contacts. Cheryl was wonderful about providing samples, knowing about products (or finding the answer if she didn’t know), knowing less costly alternatives when we needed that and she knows people at the design stores we visited. That makes a huge difference! She develops a vision and is very creative, has great ideas and great tastes! She is an excellent communicator and when we would have a question, she was always able to respond in lay person’s terms and invite our ideas. She had a very strong and open relationship with our contractor and that helped all of us!"
"Bloom Design Group has served our firm exceedingly well over the course of the past 10 years. We have enjoyed rapid growth and have presented Bloom Design Group with the challenge of custom designing and coordinating installation of many of our offices. These offices must be efficient and attractive while serving multiple functions. Your extraordinary team has exceeded our expectations. You are a part of our team and have earned our respect and loyalty."
