Interior design renovation, revisited

 

Just over three years ago I was approached by a wonderful couple who were about to be married in the

June of 2013. They asked me to design their home in readiness for their big day and to enjoy their new

lives together. It was exciting and challenging, and I was honoured to assist. Peter, my client and his wife

to be Natasha had exciting plans and visions for their home, and by the completion of their project they

were certainly fulfilled on all accounts.

 

Just recently I revisited them and their house was as beautiful as on the day I left.

The Process …

We arranged a design consultation at the house and discussed styles, plans, budget

and timescales. Within the duration of a couple of hours we had established the brief and

knew exactly where Peter and Natasha wanted to be in terms of style and how we would work

together on their project. I presented a proposal for the design, services and project management

needed to completeThis included flooring, curtains, fabric, carpets, furniture and bespoke items

of sofa, bed and hand crafted table from Cornwall. After the ideas and proposals were accepted the

project was set in motion.

 

The following shows mood boards and before and after images.

The second phase of the project consisted of sourcing each item, fixture fitting and furniture

to fit within the space, making sure they were both practical and and aesthetically pleasing. It is

essential that client and designer are on the same page at this stage, and there are no allowances

for mistakes. I really enjoy collating the design, bringing together the products,

organising the services and any small structural changes that have been decided. The

responsibility and The excitement of choosing many items for a client is a trustworthy and

honourable position to be in.

Being a designer is a wonderful profession and I would be lying if I said that I did not prefer

to engage in the “Whole design project experience”, but equally enjoy immersing myself in

smaller projects too!
