“Turnkey styling” refers to a comprehensive approach in which a design or project team takes care of every aspect, from conception to completion, leaving the client with a fully finished and ready-to-use space. In the context of Melis & Deniz and the FF&E team, turnkey styling involves not only the selection and placement of furniture, fixtures, and equipment (FF&E) but also the sourcing, curation, and dressing of decorative items and floral designs to enhance the overall aesthetics and ambience of the space.

Here’s a breakdown of the turnkey styling process as described:

Sourcing

Carefully select and source furniture, fixtures, and equipment that align with the overall design concept and client’s preferences.

Identify decorative items and floral designs that complement the chosen aesthetic.

Curating

Curate a cohesive collection of furnishings and decorative elements to create a harmonious design.

Ensure that each item contributes to the desired atmosphere and style.

Dressing

Floral Design
