Our approach combines detailed spatial design combined with the decorative aesthetic of your interior.
Major decisions at construction stage including the placing of services are made early on in the build or renovation process. A great many decisions on the interior design affect your achieving the final vision for your home. Right down to having enough space for curtains to hang.
Over the years we have worked with clients on both new builds (self builder) and renovation projects and understand that the sooner you get an interior designer involved as part of your design team the more likely you are to end up with the home of your dreams. Whats more you will have acurate detail for tender or fixed price builds
The spatial design process is vital for getting the end result right first time.
Running alongside this process we explore with you the style of the interior, the interior design process.
Surfaces, lighting, colours and textures, furniture, furnishings and architectural detail are all part of the aesthetic; the way the space will look.
Knowing what you want in terms of interior decoration influences the space planning and interior architecture.
The two processes go hand in hand and require early planning.
We will guide you through, and structure the decision process so that you have a logical progression towards the final installation.
This includes submitting all necessary plans to your architect for inclusion into tender drawings - more detail means more acurate quotations.
Once your contractors are on site you will be armed with all the information and detail you need.
We are then still available to you as part of your design team where we can act in a consultative role and later be involved in the installation of interior finishes.
