We are passionate about achieving fresh and exciting interiors for clients and we understand that each and every project has its own requirements and challenges, we want to help you to enjoy the process, design is a fun world of creativity and should be a pleasure.
We find that by breaking down our process it helps you, the client, to enjoy each step of the way with a better knowledge of what to expect.
If you have a project that you need help with, get in touch, we will happily meet with you to discuss your design brief and prepare a tailor-made estimate for your specific project.
Each client has a different budget, we always refer to the triangle of TIME, MONEY AND QUALITY. If you want good quality design it will take money and time, if you want it done on a smaller budget it will take longer and the quality might be affected. We need to be realistic as to what can be achieved with your budget and we are here to help realise this with you and find solutions.
If you are working on a large scale project such as a hotel or multiple apartment developments we would expect to work alongside a project management team and other specialists. We also understand that smaller projects who have restricted funding will be in a situation where they are required to project manage themselves.
This is why we offer a range of services, some clients who want to project manage themselves and also implement the design/ build themselves we would suggest viewing our ‘Concept boxes’, they are ‘off the shelf’ designs in several distinct styles which will give you a strong design concept and the relevant information you require to build your project.
If you need a little more advice that is specific to your site we can add on elements such as the floor plan layout as a bolt on.
For the majority of our clients, we are appointed to carry out a full design service, this is from research, planning and concept through to styling, snagging and interior photography.
