We provide solutions. All our work is focused around the client's needs.
If a homeowner is struggling to conceptualize their room design ideas, or if the ideas they do have are in need of a polish, then it's a good idea to seek professional advice. A qualified and experienced interior designer and decorator can offer a combination of creative flair, imagination, aesthetic awareness and organisational, analytical and budgeting skills that can help bring a client's hopes for their new-look home to a successful fruition.
There is some overlap between interior design and interior architecture, but essentially an interior architect has a slightly wider remit than a simple decorator. They are experts in the relationship between the way a building is laid out and how it is used by those living or working in it, and they are often concerned with large structural changes to the interiors of buildings that are being repurposed to suit modern needs. While many interior design jobs won't require their services, a homeowner may wish to enlist the help of an interior architect in a number of situations: if, for example, you are changing the function of a room rather than simply upgrading how it looks, or if you are planning a radical remodelling of your dwelling's interior knocking down walls, changing the position of a staircase, installing an indoor swimming pool and so forth.
Usually, the interior designer or decorator will be involved in all aspects of the home refurbishment from beginning to end. Firstly, they will talk at length with the client to develop a full understanding of their needs, tastes and expectations. Then they will draw up a range of sketches, plans and concept studies using computer aided design (CAD) software and present them for the client's approval and comments. These decorator designs will take into account colour schemes, lighting and any technical issues, as well as health and safety and environmental regulations. The decorator will then proceed to project manage the renovation, coordinating with the building contractors and various trades actually undertaking the physical labour and ensuring that the work remains on schedule and on budget. It's also part of their job as a decorator to source everything from paint, fabrics, wallpaper and flooring to furniture, art and antiques, and they might even design, commission and oversee the construction of customized, bespoke furnishings if the client so wishes.
