What’s your interior design process?

For the online interior design service, below is a step by step of how the design process is run. It all starts off with the:

* Welcome Pack (This is a document which lists all the design elements on offer with a maximum of 5 that can be chosen per package)
* Terms & Conditions (To be read, signed and the original returned via post)
* Client Questionnaire (This is a document which consists of 17 questions to be completed which helps me to understand you and your project in more detail)
* Quote (A quote is provided based on your package which is a fixed price)
* Brief Agreement (A summary of the design elements, what you hope to achieve in your project outcome & a summary breakdown of the design process is sent & agreed)
* Invoice (50% of the package price is paid upfront with the final 50% due at 80% project completion stage)

The Sketch Design phase the commences which is where the drawings, designs, floorplans, layouts, any samples / swatches are sourced and the client document is put together. The client is responsible for undertaking the measured survey with a mutual agreement in writing that the measurements provided may not be exact. After submission and review of the initial design document; 3 x small amendments (within reason) are allowable. Then final design document is then produced with no further amendments. Then a checklist to confirm all points have been covered as per the brief agreement to be run through with the client.

The traditional interior design service is run the same way with the difference being the measured survey is undertaken by myself and the sketch design document will be presented in person (as opposed to emailed over).

Which interior design styles can you cater for?

I can cater for any style based on the design brief. As part of the design process a selection of images is required whether from magazines, online or social media platforms to help me to understand the style and look you are trying to achieve. Whether it is contemporary, traditional, modern or minimalist. Some interior design styles do not always stick to one particular style they may be a blend of a few, hence why images are a big help with defining the idea and image you have for your home.

What do you love most about your job?

What I love most about my job is transforming people's homes into a home they can be proud of and that is designed around them and their needs but most of all an interior design that they have always desired but never had the knowledge or the creativity to be able to create that space that suits them. Part of the design process and the design brief is understanding the client's needs and desired outcome for their project and making sure that it is achievable and allowing the client to share their ideas and get them involved and inspired and hearing the enjoyment when they can participate in the design process is something I do love about my job because ultimately it is the client that has to be happy as it is their home and probably one of their biggest investments they will ever make. So taking the time to understand them and their project is key to making the project a success.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I want to make a difference to people's lives in a creative way. My passion has always been in the creative world and ever since I can remember I was always drawing, or sketching or making something - those were the things that made me truly happy. I started my business as in the last few years I developed a passion for interiors. People's homes never conformed to one rule and that is what I loved is that you can be so imaginative and creative but behind that it was transforming the everyday working person's house or apartment into a home at an affordable cost. Traditionally interior designers were seen for the wealthy or the super rich but offering my interior design service at an affordable price allows me to work with residential homeowners who would never consider working with an interior designer before.


Offering an online interior design service and technological advances allows me to create interior design concepts digitally and efficiently at a much cheaper cost from the comfort of my home and present them in a way that encompasses all the tools, design elements and understanding for my clients to see what can be achieved on a relatively low budget. Like a traditional interior design service I still source samples and swatches as it is really important to see what these look like in natural light and artificial light but also the internet does not show a true likeness of images online.


Being able to start my own business to cater for homeowners that fall into this category was inspiration enough to create not just a home but a home they can be proud of for many years to come.

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!
