This is the first stage of the design process and is the initial consultation the designer and you. We use this time to meet on site (if possible) with you to discuss your project, goals, priorities and needs for the space. We also use this time to clarify your budget and to discuss our fee structure.
When possible we love to collect as much documentary information as possible in regards to your space. This can include photos on site, floor plans, initial measurements, as well as documenting any limitations that need to be taken into account.
From our Initial Consultation, we then gather all the information we have discussed with you and research and prepare styles and images that we think will be suitable for the space. We use this time to prepare our initial style concept boards that we use as a visual tool to clarify the style and confirm the brief between the designer and client.
Then we welcome any feedback from our clients in regards to our initial concepts, and amend any ideas accordingly. We work with you until you are happy with our final concept and would like to proceed to specifying/sourcing products/materials.
With your approval, we finalize all selections, which can include ordering furnishings, materials and products, collaborating with builders, trades, suppliers and manufacturers. We work with our colleagues to ensure an efficient, quality and safe installation of all items.
The final stage of our design process involves us coming for a final inspection of your project, to ensure that we're both are happy with the final outcome. This time can also be used for some final styling which can include us sourcing an assortment of products to place around the home or rearranging existing pieces to ensure the space is working it’s best.
