“What exactly do you do?”

One question that is often asked about my job description is: What exactly do you do? So here is a post about our process of working with our clients.
We have been engaged in residential projects of different scales for the past twenty years. We’ve loved customising each space and helping our clients experiment with luxurious, unique, life-changing interiors for their homes.

Each project is tailored to our client’s needs, whether furnishing a single room, selecting the perfect colours for a space, or embarking on a home renovation project. Each project has a unique scope of work, which varies from one project to another.

Our Design and Decoration Service is tailored for clients undertaking renovation projects. We help select finishes, layout options, and overall design look of the space. We have established steps to accomplish a good design result when undertaking a renovation project. We listen attentively to your needs and start our design process after our initial meeting.

Initial Meeting

First, we meet with you for a friendly chat; I get to know your preferences, for example, your design aesthetic, colours, and practicality. The family dynamic, whether there are children or the children are all grown up, and you are ready to downsize. All these aspects of life are listened to and taken into consideration when approaching the design brief.

Paid On-Site Consultation

This initial on-site consultation is the starting point for discovering and understanding your space. We walk through each space of your home and examine its orientation and scale. We discuss the budget and what a realistic expectation for your project is.

Establishing the Design Brief

In our design 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 will meet and present our Design Agreement and Design Brief to our client.

Upon receiving the signed agreement from our client, we begin working on the project. 

Stage 2 | Working on the Concept

We scheduled 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.

A written specification includes the approximate cost of the selected items. 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 artisans and workrooms.

Design is more about improving the lives of our clients. Trends come and go, but most importantly, our designs reflect our clients’ personalities.

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 client’s approval.

Stage 4 | Site Visit and Installation

We attend site visits to inspect and discuss the project’s progress with the relevant trade. We work with a team of skilled and professional tradespeople; with them, we can achieve the level of finishes we aim for.
