Residential projects


Residential projects

I thoroughly recommend using an interior designer.   Interior design is not a luxury - working with a designer will save you money.   Good design and planning will always avoid costly mistakes (and waste!) as does experience.   Designers keep up to speed on regulations, sources and developments through connections, research, visiting exhibitions and trade fairs etc.⠀

Being a BIID Registered Interior Designer® at the British Institute of Interior Design means I am constantly learning as we commit to Continuing Professional Development each year.  I have long-standing relationships with suppliers and can often save clients money by working with my trade sources.

Over my 15 years in business I have worked on numerous domestic interior design projects - mostly for homeowners directly.   I very much enjoy helping to elevate anxiety for clients and problem solve areas of a space for clients.

My involvement varies to fit needs of client and their project. 

As each project is different, I will send you a questionaire to build a brief.  

My input can be all of the below - or just some of the steps - dipping in and out of projects as help is needed.

Project steps:  

  • Briefing and site visit
  • Interior design concept
  • Design development and sourcing
  • Detail drawings and specification
  • Trade liaison
  • Purchasing
  • Designer on site
