Architects, builders and even some clients, don’t always consider all the interior design implications, when combined with the more structural or major refurbishment type work. Simple decorative and practical improvements can be made and compromises avoided if we’re involved early enough.
Considering the basics, such as;
from the start often has it’s advantages. Even small changes, such as simply moving an internal door could provide justifiable improvements. In addition to any exterior changes, such as a window position, which ‘could’ have some significant internal impact. It’s preferable to consider ALL aspects, including the key furniture items/layout, before thinking about decorative schemes and lighting to help avoid any compromise or extra expense later.Email Us Call Us
We cover every aspect of interior design from concept to completion. Every project, every client, every brief is different. Consequently we work with you to understand your personal requirements and then provide the right creative and practical service - for you! Whether contemporary or more traditional style, just plans or the full project service, for one room or an entire house. From fully considered structural solutions, inside & out, to inspirational decorative schemes. With ‘many’ years of practical & creative experience, we have successfully worked on all kinds of projects. From new builds, extensions and exterior styling, to open-plan kitchens with family rooms, and master bedrooms with a dressing room & ensuite.
Our designs generally include overall layout considerations, along with room visuals, to give you the best understanding of our ideas. They can incorporate the decoration & furnishing aspect, if a more comprehensive service is required. Additionally, we can provide un-biased kitchen designs, which we consider to be part of the whole project - not an isolated element! We work with a number of kitchen suppliers who collaborate specifically with designers. This enables us to design & specify a range of kitchen styles at various budget levels.

This is the part of the design that most people feel they enjoy - choosing the decorative finishes and furnishings. Our schemes and designs generally include - recommendations and guidance for a look and feel to fit your brief, from paint colours & wallpapers, all kinds of flooring, along with window treatments in numerous formats, fabrics & materials with samples and other references, all as appropriate. Lighting ideas for a varied and layered atmosphere, as well as any other specific elements, such as bespoke fitted furniture, TV/speaker positioning, radiator styles, fireplaces, storage, art and accessories.
Ideally, it’s better to consider all the structural and practical elements, in combination with the decorative aspects, from the start for the very best result.Email Us Call Us
We can just focus on the more structural, planning and layout aspects of your project. (this maybe an appropriate service for longer time-framed projects.) To fully consider and clarify the overall design, structure and priority materials/finishes, BEFORE committing to any build works or even thinking about the purely decorative details.
It’s not uncommon for us to take a project over from an architect, who’s designed the overall structure and obtained planning permission etc. But who has not fully addressed or resolved all of the lifestyle and everyday living requirements. Which might, for example include a more appropriate and integrated kitchen design, with fully considered style & material choices to work with the house, as whole. This kind of service is ideally suited to larger conversions, refurbishments & renovations. Or new builds and extensions, at the planning or early build stage. We can also help with exterior styling, material finishes, lighting and hardscaping.Email Us Call Us
If accurate drawings/plans are not already available, we will need to survey and draw-up plans. This will be essential for us to create the optimum design – for you and the room/property in question. Combined with the designs they will also help clarify the work needed and to brief contractors.Email Us Call Us
The design is an essential element for ‘any’ project! We also understand compromise, but perhaps this can come later – if needed. Our design fees will be subject to your brief, the size and type of project and the extent of detail or specification required. A comprehensive room design starts from £750.00 + VAT.Email Us Call Us
The designs usually take 2-3 weeks to complete. We will then ‘walk’ you through every aspect! These will probably include floor-plans, showing furniture in position, with suggested lighting and any bespoke or built-in elements. More complex and structural designs will probably include 3D illustrations. In addition to various picture references and samples including wallpapers, paint colours, flooring materials, fabrics and window treatments. All as appropriate and everything needed to explain and help you understand your designs.Email Us Call Us
We obviously need to see the property or plans, discuss the extent of our potential involvement, establish all the parameters and confirm fees so that we can create a fully considered design tailored to suit you, the property and your budget.

Once the designs are completed we can provide various levels of service and ongoing guidance to help you implement our designs. This involvement can be as flexible as you require and could include - additional research, itemised specification or shopping lists, product or supplier web-links and other recommendations.
Or using our experience and numerous proven specialist suppliers & contractors, we can produce written briefs & specifications, obtain estimates and oversee their works to ensure the designs are implemented as envisaged, planned & agreed.
We can also work with your own team and help with aesthetic direction only when needed.
These additional management, sourcing and guidance services would be charged on an hourly basis. Usually we would submit a timesheet & invoice on a monthly basis or as appropriate for the works undertaken.
Furniture, lighting and materials that we source from our trade suppliers are generally inclusive of our time to specify and supply. This ensures the right items/styles are ordered to suit the design at no extra cost to you.
Bespoke furniture and furnishings – such as curtains, blinds, upholstery and fitted joinery, including material supply, manufacture and installation, would usually be co-ordinated and overseen by us personally to get the very best results. These items & services are generally quoted inclusive of our project management time.
We have a diverse range of trade accounts so that we can supply unlimited products and materials to realise our designs. In addition to being able to specify and commission carefully selected art & accessories.
