What’s your interior design process?

An initial first meeting is always helpful, not only for me to see the space for designing but to have an informal chat with the client to determine the brief, what they would like to achieve from the design, a budget that they may have in mind and timescale for the work.

From the meeting, I then establish the design time required for the project and will forward a proposal for designer fees and what this includes.
When an agreement is reached, the design process begins. Researching, sourcing, sketches for room layouts and plans, scale drawings, acquiring fabric, wall and flooring samples and much more. As each design is unique to the individual the process varies along the way.

Design/concept boards, drawings, report of where to purchase and cost of suggested items are produced together with any samples acquired.
On presentation of the designs the client has the option of either implementing the designs themselves using the information given, or to opt for project co-ordination, where the designer oversees the whole project.

Which interior design styles can you cater for?

I work with all Interior Design styles. Most clients have an idea of the style they are looking for which is a good starting point, but if you’re unsure we can go through style options together.

What do you love most about your job?

I would say that the best part of any design is seeing the whole project come together. From the design concept, through to the completed dressed property. As well as my clients having a home they can be proud of that is unique and functional for them.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Interior Design is something I have loved for many years and after training professionally I gained experience through personal projects. Having my own design business was always something I’d aspired to achieve and so the design studio, Ellen Robinson Designs, began in 2011.

Why should our clients choose you?

I listen to my clients to gain an understanding of what they would like to achieve from the design and their likes and dislikes. This enables me to produce bespoke designs that suit you and your family, are stylish but functional.
My working relationship with clients is to always have their best interests as priority, to be reliable and can always be contacted with any queries along the way.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

The design services can initially begin online or remotely by phone, email or video call appointments. However for those who prefer not to do this I can still visit providing all guidelines are met to keep us both safe in the current situation.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

There is the option of working online and remotely with the client to provide the designs required or in cases where this is not possible all precautions are taken by wearing masks, sanitising and distancing.

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!
