Working with an interior designer will be an enjoyable time as she listens, designs and reveals to you a beautiful home. Find out how we work.

What to Expect

Cassy Young of Young Design Group bring years of experience right to your home or office. Cassy will be asking lots of questions because she wants your space to represent your style needs whether it’s for your home or business!

The initial appointment typically lasts about an hour. Larger projects may require longer more than one appointment. Once you decide to work together, Cassy will take photos and video, and measure the space during the design appointment. If there are multiple areas to be measured, she may return another day. If you have accurate floorplans or blueprints please have them available.

Cassy will request a full house tour and you should mention other problem areas. She may ask to see your closet to get an idea of the colors and patterns you wear. This is a time to get to know each other and decide how to move forward.

Black and gold makes a statement in this bar.


People are often shy to discuss a budget, but for both parties it is by far one of the most important aspects of your initial consultation. You may not know how much things cost and we can work with you to determine a budget that accomplishes your overall project goals.

You may choose to work on one space at a time or an entire home or business. The investment will determine the furnishings Cassy can include in the project. Fortunately, Young Design Group have access to a vast array of American made furniture.  We have to the trade only pieces and custom upholstery and drapery. We also have imported furniture at different price points to help fit in anyone’s budget. We also offer a full range of commercial furnishings.

Cassy will come to you with a design board to help you make these important selections.

Design Plan & Presentation

Every project presents its own unique set of circumstances. Cassy prides herself on working side by side with you to accomplish your design vision. She’ll discuss the specifics of your project, help determine the budget and make some preliminary design suggestions.

Depending on the size of the project, Cassy may be able to get started with just one meeting but generally a full room project (or larger) may require several appointments. At her studio, interior designer Cassy Young will begin to plan out the space she is decorating and start to make selections for your individualized design.

You may like to visit her Bogart studio to look at fabrics or try out the different sofa cushions. The studio is a great place to see the quality you can expect.

Visit the Bogart design studio to see the fabrics and sit on furniture before you order. Sit on cushions in the studio so selection is easy for your sofa.

Behind the Scenes

Once the design plan is complete, staff at Young Design Group starts ordering furniture and furnishings from multiple vendors nationally and internationally. The design team will keep you informed of their progress and how the project is developing.

As your products are ordered from a wide range of vendors, items arrive individually and are stored together safely until everything arrives. Some things may arrive within weeks, custom items may take several months depending on availability and production schedules.

The Final Reveal

If you are having major renovations, you will see most of the work being done. But if you are having a room decorated, you can look forward to a huge surprise.

You’ve waited patiently for installation day, surely the most exciting day for both you and Cassy! It is advisable to leave Cassy and her design team alone in your home to supervise the sub-contractors who will install window treatments and hang light fixtures.

If you were having paint and wallpaper installed, that may happen earlier to avoid paint spills on your new furniture. Cassy will call you to return home when everything is perfect. There is nothing nicer than having left your home in the morning then returning later to see the final reveal. Enjoy your new space — hiring an interior designer is worth every cent!
