Winterthur Design Associates


The name Winterthur as well as that of its founder, Henry Francis du Pont, has long been synonymous with taste, elegance, and style. Winterthur Design Associates, established in 1986, continues this tradition, taking inspiration from the past to create comfortable living spaces for today’s lifestyle.  Designing a home is about lifestyle, your lifestyle, and the design should reflect how you live and who you are. Winterthur Design Associates has the ability to incorporate sustainable design principles whether you are renovating, redecorating or simply want to live a “greener” life and use less energy in your home.  Whether your project is large or small, our designer can help you create a luxurious surrounding that reflects your needs and wishes.

Design Process/How We Work:

Initial Consultation - The first and most important step is the initial consultation where we meet face to face and begin to establish our working relationship.  We will want to hear about your desires and vision for the projects.

Letter of Agreement - Detailing the specifics of the projects, design fees and payment schedule will all be included in this document.  Our design fee is usually a fixed amount based on the scope of work involved.  This fee represents a reasonable assessment of the professional time, resources, and materials it will take to complete your project.

Research & Presentation - In this step, measurements are taken, floor plans and other drawings are created, color schemes, fabrics, finishes, and furnishings will be identified for selection by the client.  A preliminary budget will also be presented.

Final Plan - A detailed presentation of the final design is developed along with the working cost of the project.

Implementation - Upon final approval of all plans, the design team will place orders for furnishings, schedule necessary contractors (carpenters, painters, installers, etc.).  The Winterthur Design team will provide oversight and follow through to see the job to completion.
