What’s your interior design process?

Below is a rough outline of my design process. It can vary slightly from project to project depending on how involved my clients want me to be.

1) Initial Design Consultation
This is usually a phone conversation followed by a site visit to determine exactly what the client needs, their budget and time frame. I will ask the client to complete a design brief which will help clarify their likes/dislikes and enable me to ascertain how I can help.

2) Quote
Once I have met the client and have all relevant information I put together a comprehensive quote along with a contract.

3) Mood board and visuals
After the quote has been accepted, I will do a site survey and take measurements of the relevant rooms/areas. I then put together a mood board and 2D or 3D visuals (depending on the project requirements) and present these to the client either in person or I send them electronically if they are not within my geographical area.

4) Sample board
Once the client has signed off on the visual 'look and feel' I will create a sample board with fabric swatches, paint samples, wall and floor coverings, furniture list as well as fixtures and fittings according to the brief.

5) Project Management and Implementation
I can oversee the installation/implementation of the design as required. This can include sourcing and ordering furniture, sourcing tradespeople and managing their work, final styling and adding finishing touches to a project.

Which interior design styles can you cater for?

I can cater for most interior design styles but I lean towards the following:-

Contemporary
Minimal
Mid-century
Modern-rustic
Scandinavian
Boho-chic
Industrial

What do you love most about your job?

My job is so varied and every project is different and rewarding in its own way.

I love meeting new clients and creating beautiful interiors for them without breaking the bank. It gives me great pleasure when I find the perfect tile, bathroom, kitchen, colour scheme for my client and transform their home into a space that really reflects their personality and lifestyle.

It isn't always necessary to build an extension in order to get better use or flow out of an area. Sometimes, just reconfiguring the furniture or maybe knocking down a wall between two rooms can make an enormous difference to how the space is used.

So I get very excited when I can offer a solution that the client hasn't considered but that they love and is within their budget.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I had spent many years renovating homes for my family and friends as a hobby while working full time in the media. After a fulfilling media career though I decided to follow my passion and retrain as an Interior Designer and I am so glad I did.

My habitat is very important to me and having lived in three different countries and moved house many times, I've realised that it is possible to make anywhere feel like home and to create a beautiful environment without having to spend lots of money.

Running a small business is hard work but I realise I'm very fortunate to spend my days doing something I love.

Why should our clients choose you?

CLIENT IS THE FOCUS
I always put my client at the centre of the project. This might sound obvious but I am aware that some potential clients are afraid of using an Interior Designer because they think that (a) it's going to be expensive and (b) that the Interior Designer will do what THEY want rather than what the client wants.

I believe I am a good listener and based on past experience I know I can offer solutions that are affordable and beautiful that will meet the client's brief.

COST CONSCIOUS AND VALUE FOR MONEY
There are no hidden costs so once I have given a quote, unless the client modifies the brief or asks for additional work outside the initial agreement, my fee won't change.

Also, I'm very conscious of the fact that I am not spending my money so I'm never reckless with my clients' finances.

In addition, I try to reuse/repurpose where appropriate because I hate the thought of ripping out something new if it can be salvaged or repurposed.

FLEXIBLE AND EFFICIENT
I can be involved in every aspect of a project - from initial ideas through to implementation for a whole house or I can just be consulted to work on a new scheme for one room. So, I'm very flexible.

SAVE TIME AND OFFER SOLUTIONS
Looking for the perfect piece of furniture, wall covering or paint colour is time consuming. Many of my clients are time-poor or simply don't know where to start. I take the stress and guess work away from my clients and allow them to focus their time on other areas of their life.

Residential Interior Designers FAQs

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!
