The Interior Design Process

Briefing

Listening to and understanding clients is crucial to the success of any interior design project. At our initial meeting we discuss the client’s needs, personal tastes and how the family works or will work within the space. This ensures we get a clear view of their hopes and aspirations for the property. We use this information to tailor the design to create a totally original finish which will suit the client perfectly. There is a standard call out fee which is deducted from the design fee should the client decide to proceed.

Design

Designs are created to fit the client’s budget and brief. A design for each room is presented, illustrating the colour scheme, furniture, lighting specification, floor finishes, fabric palettes and room layouts. 3D Visuals are created as appropriate to help the client visualise the scheme. Following the initial presentation, schemes are revised where necessary, until the client is satisfied. At this stage the client is charged an agreed design fee.

Construction and Fitout

We can facilitate the client with independent contractors, joiners, decorators, fitters etc whom we regularly work with. Should the client wish to work with their own preferred team, we are very happy to work alongside them. Our project management fee is charged either by the hour or as a percentage of the build cost, whichever the client is most comfortable with.

Supply

Fabrics, wall coverings, accessories and floor finishes – We source and supply fabrics, wallpapers, furniture, accessories, floor coverings and all other relevant components for the scheme.

Furniture, Curtains and upholstery – We offer a full soft furnishing, upholstery and curtain-making service. We can design bespoke furniture, kitchens, bathrooms, dressing rooms and libraries to suit the client and the property perfectly.
