We work closely with architects to provide the agreed upon design. Our office creates detailed plans and specifications for the contractors to create proposals for our clients. Every detail is resourced, planned and specified in advance so that the contractor can give a detailed quote to our client.


Elizabeth Ribons/Environments Design has been a valuable resource for me while I worked to complete design projects within my home.  I am confident in most of my design decisions but having Elizabeth come and provide that professional touch is what helped to create a higher level of aesthetic that is appealing and unique.  I have used her consultation services several times and have found them a valuable source of information.  Using a professional has saved me so much money in the long run.....she even pointed out ways for me to not overspend on certain areas which allowed me to budget for other things I wanted in my home.  I highly recommend Elizabeth Ribons/Environment Design Group for a consultation.   It will save you money and unwanted errors.
