‘20 Certificate of Excellence

Located in Wimborne, Dorset, we offer contemporary residential and commercial interior design ranging from creating a personal colour scheme or working out how best to get more light and space into the property through to a full refurbishment. This includes: - lighting design - project co-ordination. - reliable and trustworthy contractors such as kitchen, bathroom and bedroom designers, plumbers, electricians, decorators etc. If you also need structural work done I can also bring in Architects and building surveyors. My role is to help you navigate the interiors market to help you make decisions which are right for you, your family and property. I am not about making your home into a 'show home', preferring the more relaxed and contemporary feel for a home whilst incorporating and considering your preferences and lifestyle. What I can do is to help you consider the latest trends in both interior architecture and interior design so your home does not look dated and also fits your own personal style and budget.

What’s your interior design process?

First an initial consultation via the telephone to understand a little bit more about your project and for me to outline the process I follow. This is free to you.

The next stage is for me to undertake a site visit to both meet you and see the property and to understand what you are looking for in order to form a brief.

If you then wanted to go ahead and hire me and my services then a contract is signed at this stage. This is then followed by a consultive process where the design is developed. I would also organise any construction trades to carry out the work and agree timelines. Work then begins (mobilisation) and is fully project managed by myself until completion and client sign off.

Every job is individual and so timelines can vary dependant on what the project involves.

Which interior design styles can you cater for?

I very much lean towards modern and contemporary lifestyle choices

What do you love most about your job?

As a designer, we are problem solvers so there is nothing better than someone coming to me as they are stuck on a design problem. By researching and exploring different ideas and approaches I love to come up with something that is going to create a wow factor but also very lovable with. When the ideas I have visualised get made into reality and my client loves them that is what I love. It is so nice to see a pleased and happy client at the end of the process.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I love my job of designing and wanted the freedom to run a business that would let me do that.

Why should our clients choose you?

I am fully qualified Interior Designer having studied and gaining a Bachelor of Arts Honary Degree in Interior Design graduating in 2013. I put a lot of care and attention into thinking about and getting the right design for the client and property. I run my business with integrity and honesty and use only construction trades who I know are 100% professional and I can trust. I run all projects using the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) Plan of Work and am an associate member of the British Institute of Interior Design. This ensures I am working to the highest standards of design in the Design and Construction in the Industry which are maintained at all times.

I am also fully insured and hold Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance as do my contractors.

Residential Interior Designers FAQs

Expand all

Your expert Interior Designer will be able to advise you on the full range of services available and will be able to help you select the best services for your home. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a professional Interior Designer today.

Firstly, it is important to have an idea of what you like and don’t like. This is a really useful starting point for what styles will work for you which will be used by the Interior Designer to formulate some suitable concepts.

There are a number of ways which will help you decide your favourite styles such as:

  • Magazines – It is a good idea to browse through interior design magazines such as Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, Galerie Magazine and Veranda.

  • Social media – Have a look at their social media platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest which will give you a good idea of their style and moreover will showcase their portfolios.

  • Local media – Take a look at their websites and see if you can find any local press coverage on any projects they have undertaken.

  • Visits – Try and visit art galleries, antique shops or fashion boutiques to get a sense of what styles you like.

Personality fit - You want to make sure there is a good personality fit with your Interior Designer. Projects can go on for months or even years.

Client involvement - Some designers prefer consulting with a client every step of the process whereas others prefer full creative control so you want to know ahead of time what to expect. As a client, you should know how you like to work and how much involvement you expect from the start.

Inspiration - If you ask questions about their favourite projects you can get a peek into how he or she navigates the creative process.

Communication - Ask detailed questions about the firm’s strengths and weaknesses which will help you determine whether or not it is the right match for your project and timeline.

Project management style - Be sure to ask your designer how they will communicate their vision in a way that you can easily digest. Some Interior Designers manage the entire process from the design phase, through the procurement phase and the final installation. Every designer handles project management differently so it is important to have a firm and clear grasp of how your designer’s process works.

Design risks – Sometimes the initial design presentation may not be what you are looking for. The key is to be open-minded, prepare yourself for some design risks and be honest with how you are feeling. The designs should speak to you as you will have to live with them.

Past clients - It is a good idea to ask about previous projects to understand how crises are dealt with and how the designer has factored in preventative measures.

Budget - It is important to talk about budgets beforehand rather than in the middle of a project which can make a world of difference in terms of avoiding unnecessary conflict. It is worth getting a few quotations from different Interior Designers before deciding on a specific style.

You should look for a degree, foundation degree or HND in relevant subjects such as architecture, fine art, furniture design, interior and spatial design, interior architecture, textile design and 3D design.

Before you choose an Interior Designer, you could ask to see examples of their work, read testimonials and view before and after pictures of rooms and homes they have designed.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark and check out reviews from past customers too as well as examples of work that they have completed. This might also help you get some ideas for the types of design you need.

Interior designers cover a number of different aspects. They prepare detailed plans for the space showing the colour scheme, materials, lighting and soft furnishings they recommend. They also provide clients with detailed drawings, mood boards and scale models if required. Some designers will create interactive digital presentations to show you their designs. They will also show you samples of the materials that they recommend for your home.

Yes, you can. An online interior designer will ask you questions about your budget and preferences, and then they will design a 'virtual' room, filling it with real furniture you can purchase - pretty neat stuff!
