We begin our journey where we finish – with you! Every project is as unique as you are.
Your home or workplace is a reflection of you. It is a personal process and is vital that everyone involved feels comfortable. We always request an initial meeting with prospective clients to introduce ourselves – meet you – and give both parties an opportunity to gain a sense of chemistry.
You talk – we listen.
We discuss the project’s design brief in full and begin to form a sense of how the space will be used. Details, for example; Do you entertain frequently? Do you have pets? Children or extended family to take into consideration? We discuss preferred styles, colours and atmosphere.
We take your thoughts and needs and inspire you with ideas that you may not have thought of; always with a focus on budget and reality.
This is where it gets exciting. Once Ann has spent time with you, Ann will begin the creative process. This will involve drawing up floor plans and key elevations, researching furnishings and materials, right through to the finishing touches.
Ann will then meet with you for a presentation of the overall concept; giving you mood boards, inspirational images along with material samples which will all be tailored to your bespoke design.
Your project becomes our project and we remain involved throughout. You can depend on us to deliver your interior project to you. Gaining access to our suppliers network of our tried and trusted contractors, suppliers and craftspeople guarantees a project delivered on budget, within timescales – every time.
THE DESIGN PROCESS
Ann is guided by principles of ecology and sustainability. We utilise and up-cycle our clients’ existing furnishings where possible and use natural, durable materials with which to design. We believe in developing lasting relationships, with our clients, suppliers and contractors, and are very proud to support local craftspeople and artisans.
We take this conscientious approach to design in order to deliver results that are personal, balanced and timeless.
We offer a fee arrangement that simply reflects our time employed, not the value of the project, its location or at which stage it is at. On most projects we provide a fixed fee for each stage as this provides transparency from the outset.
As each project is unique and requires different elements we do not have general costs. Each project is researched and our fees based on our experience of the duration each stage.
Our substantial discounts from our extensive supplier networks are passed on to benefit you – these typically exceed any design fees.
