MEETING & BRIEFING
My design approach is thoughtful and collaborative, and always begins with the development of a thorough project brief. The
first step is for us to meet so that I can find out more about your design needs. This conversation – together with a questionnaire that I will ask you to fillout beforehand – enables me to develop
a creative brief that will form the basis of the design work. It’s also an opportunity for you to ask me any questions so that we can get to know each other and ensure we’re the right fit! The best things you can bring to this meeting are an open mind and a willingness to discuss your likes and dislikes, your home and your lifestyle. Following this meeting, I will send you a comprehensive write-up and fee proposal for the design work.
Once the brief and budget have been agreed, I visit you again so that I can
take photographs and record accurate measurements of your space. This also gives us an opportunity to discuss any aspect of the brief that is not yet quite perfect.
In addition to a scaled floor plan showing the best arrangement of furniture for your space, you will receive visuals of window treatments, lighting, furniture and accessories, together with a samples box containing solutions for paint colours, fabrics and flooring. Together, all these elements will enable you to visualise the proposed scheme. Two rounds of revisions are included in the design fee, ensuring you always know where you are in the design process, and that you get
a solution that you love.
Once the final design scheme has been approved, I manage all the various elements in accordance with your preferred timescales. I help you to maintain the focus and momentum of your project, so that the designs for your new space
are implemented in an organised and timely way. This process usually takes 8–10 weeks depending on the complexity of the scheme, and includes the co-ordination of all tradespeople, together with the ordering and delivery of furniture, upholstery and soft furnishings.
