For a successful and efficient design result
“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?”
Here is a post about our process on how we work with our clients.
For the past 20 years, we have engaged in different scales of residential projects.
Our projects can be small or large; we can help you furnish one room, make a colour selection for your home or building, or design a new bathroom. Or a combination to remodel the entire interior of a family home.
Each project has a different scope of work.
My job is to deliver a cohesive interior that reflects our client’s personalities; I love the connection and trust we build with our clients.
Working with an Interior Designer
To begin, we have a friendly chat with our prospective clients
In this conversation, I can clearly understand the type of project our client is looking for. Following our friendly chat, we scheduled an initial paid consultation.
This initial onsite consultation is the starting point for understanding your likes and dislikes, design, style, and budget.
Meeting new clients is exciting; we start from scratch and build a brief.
Establishing a BRIEF
In our BRIEF, we establish the scope of work 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
The design agreement includes the written scope of work and our design fees. We present and discuss our design agreement with our client. We begin working on your project following the signed design agreement.
Stage 2 | Working on the Concept
We schedule a site measure to start designing the concept of the space.
Our concept includes product samples, product images, a concept sketch, floorplan layout and drawings and 3D visualisation of the space.
Included in our written specification is the approximate cost of the items selected. We allow for one revision of the concept.
When applicable, we aim to source our items and products locally. We have established a long-lasting relationship with local craftsmen and the workroom.
Our design is more about improving the lives of our clients. Trends come and go, and most importantly, our designs reflect the personality of our clients.
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 with the approval of the client.
Stage 4 | Site Visit and Installation
We work with a team of skilled and professional trades; without them, we couldn’t achieve the level of finishes we aim for.
From a broad range of services, this is a summary of how we work with our clients to achieve a great scope of design work.
