Textile samples and cushions

“Interior design is the art and science of enhancing the interior of a building to achieve a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing environment for the people using the space.” Quote from Wikipedia

I’m often asked what is it exactly that you do?

So, I thought to write a post and summarise how we work with our clients.

For the past 15 years, we have engaged in different scales of residential projects.

For example, a project can be to furnish one room, do a colour selection for a home or building, or design a new bathroom. Or a combination to remodel the entire interior of a family home.

Each project is so different. This is what makes my job so interesting, above all, I love the connection and trust we build with our clients.

How do we work with our clients?

To begin, we have a friendly chat with our prospective clients

In this conversation, I can establish a clear idea of the type of project our client is looking for. Following our friendly chat, we schedule an initial paid consultation.

On-site consultation

During this onsite consultation, we discuss likes and dislikes, design, style, and budget. Meeting with new clients is exciting; we start from scratch and build a brief.

Establishing a BRIEF

Establishing a brief based on the ideas and solutions we discussed at the initial consultation. “The brief” develops the base as we move through stage 1 of our process.

Stage 1 | The Design Agreement is compiled

Included in the design agreement is the scope of work written in details and our design fees.

We review the design agreement with our client; after that, for the project to begin the design agreement is signed and our design fees are paid.

Stage 2 | Working on the concept

Client’s concept ideas for a lounge, dining and balcony area

After collating most of the information during the brief we do a check measure of the space. We design a concept, which includes product samples, an image of product, concept sketch, floor layout and drawings. A written specification is submitted with the approximate cost of items selected. We allow for one revision of the concept.

For our interior projects; we aim to source products/items locally but are not limited too. We create a healthy environment but most importantly we design a long-lasting interior for our clients. Our design is more about improving the lives of our clients. Trends come and go, but our designs are timeless.

Stage 3 | Approval of the Concept Design ✅

Quotations are organised and prepared for suppliers and trades. A timeline of the work is established. We proceed with orders and schedule the relevant trades. Orders are only processed on the approval of the client.
