The Interior Design Process
1. Taking the Brief
The interior design process begins with an initial consultation at your home where I take a detailed project brief.
I pride myself on listening to my clients so we take time to sit down and discuss all the ideas for your new scheme to ensure we fully understand the look and feel you would like to achieve.
We will also walk round the property together to get a good feel for the space.
I will go through your budget and timescale requirements with you and discuss how I can best help you meet these.
Following the initial consultation, you will receive a detailed written fee proposal to agree, should you wish to proceed.
2. Design Development
After taking your brief, I begin the design process with the initial concept design.
I interpret the design brief by pulling together images that represent the look and feel you have described to us including colour palettes.
You will receive a presentation of these images to agree.
After agreement of the concept design, design development continues by drawing up floor plans and elevations on CAD.
Depending on the scale of the project, I will also produce lighting layouts, joinery designs, bathroom and kitchen designs.
I finally select finishes, furniture, fabrics and lighting.
During this stage, you will receive several design presentations to agree each part of the design. These presentations include CAD drawings along with images of all suggested items and samples of all recommended finishes.
3. Procurement & Project Management
The agreed designs will be priced, and a detailed pricing document drawn up for you.
I take full control of the project management and ordering process, liaising closely with my suppliers to minimise complications and ensure that everything is delivered on time to site.
I will update you regularly throughout this stage so that you can sit back and relax knowing that everything is being taken care of.
My aim is to make everything as hassle-free as possible so that you can really enjoy the anticipation of your new home free from worry.
I manage all of the installation, from building works to decorating to bathroom installation to carpet fitting.
Finally, I oversee the delivery of all the furniture, soft furnishings, artwork and accessories and dress the rooms, making sure everything looks stunning, ready for you to walk in and enjoy!
