The Design Process
A detailed program of how I run a full design project.
I will listen to your project vision and chat through your ideas. Together we will look at your space I'll show you design styles, talk about colour psychology and room layout.
At this point I'll give you handy questionnaire to help get the whole picture, focusing on lifestyle, your project budget, and other useful practicalities. From this I can create a personal design brief tailored to your needs ensuring a smooth, creative and enjoyable project.
With a good foundation we can begin your creative journey with confidence. I am intuitive with colour and have a knack at helping you work out the colours you are at home with. I know many fantastic paint and wallpaper brands that will inspire you, with a directory of small soft furnishing and furniture suppliers that can produce curtains, cover chairs or even re-paint a loved sideboard,
I will design your colour scheme and provide you with a curated Pinterest board and you will receive your personal mood board suggesting layout, furniture and soft furnishing ideas to use as your reference point throughout.
At this point you can take the project on yourself with confidence or I can help you manage the project to the end.
Once designs are agreed, I can then implement the brief helping source everything for you. I have a directory of brands, niche or mainstream to share with you. I can get discounts and find unique pieces that build on the story of your home.
Repurposing is also a love of mine, I like to keep hold of history and memories and if I can find a way to refresh a piece of furniture I will.
With a recommended team of tradesmen and craftsmen I can provide you with the tools to make your project flow and stick to the time frames we set out.
From start to finish I want to take the stress out of your project and for you to feel you have a space that reflects you and all your design dreams have become reality.
