WELCOME TO THE CAMBERYARD TOOLKIT
A COLLECTION OF ESSENTIAL ADD-ON SERVICES AND TEMPLATES FOR RUNNING YOUR INTERIOR DESIGN STUDIO OR BRAND

In this essential toolkit for interiors studios and brands, there is a range of educational and informational tools by Camberyard Collective members and our Industry Partners, including a Project Review Press Plan, Monday.com – Working in a Team: Creating accountability without micromanaging with guideline templates, and Basecamp – Communicating with Clients and Contractors.

The guideline templates will each include a how-to webinar from that particular industry expert, so you not only have the framework but an understanding of how to tailor the form to your business. As Camberyard Collective members, you can purchase whichever components of the Toolkit you require - as and when relevant - to launch, streamline or grow your design business. It’s all here for you, in one place, when you need it.

As Dr. Maya Angelou says: “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”

Wishing you much love and light in your projects as you use this toolkit and make it your own.
