The Interior Design Process

I offer a range of Interior Design and Decoration services with various price points including:

  • Full custom Interior Design tailored to your project including selection of all colours, fittings and custom designed joinery, kitchen and bathroom design, furnishing and decoration, lighting design, window furnishing design, custom manufacture and installation.
  • Interior Decoration & Furnishing packages including supply of furniture and accessories.
  • A comprehensive 2 hour Consult Visit to explore and discover your vision and requirements.

My process follows a four step method.

Step 1: Initial Consultation

Every project is unique and every project big or small starts with a consultation. The consultation fee is a flat price of $380 inc gst for up to 2 hours.

In this consultation, we'll discuss, explore & discover what the best solution is for you. It includes meeting at your home where I'll give you recommendations & discuss your ideas and where we can take them.

If you're renovating, updating, furnishing or decorating, I will explore your existing spaces and I'll make recommendations. If you are building, I will review your architectural plans and offer feedback.

Following your initial consult session, I will send you a fee proposal outlining the Interior design works required and design fees in the next steps if you are ready to proceed. Design fees and charges are tailored to suit your individual project with package options. Contact me to have a chat about your project.

Step 2: The Concept

Once you have accepted the fee proposal, I start putting together the foundations for the style direction of the project.

I present you with a visionboard showing you inspirational images that reflect the style direction and key design elements with material & colour palette directions that will make your interior amazing. Visuals of how the design will work and floorplan/furniture layouts will show you the potential of how your home will look.

The Love Your Design Guarantee option means I don’t move past the concept stage until you absolutely love your design, giving you peace of mind knowing you’ll have an interior that fits the amazing lifestyle you dream of.

Step 3: Design Development & Design Documentation

Once the Design Concept is approved and you have a clear vision for how it will look, this stage develops all the detail. This is where the nitty gritty of the design details are considered to make the interior spaces practical and functional for all your needs as well as beautiful.

Detailed drawings of floorplans and elevations with specifications for materials and fittings all form part of the documentation to realise your dream space. Final documentation is produced with detailed instructions, CAD drawings for joinery & kitchen & bathroom spaces and a schedule of finishes, materials and fittings will enable your builder or contractors to quote your project accurately. The fee proposal will calculate how many drawings will be required for your design brief or propose a budget guideline for Furnishing & Decoration packages.

Step 4: Design Implementation

I liaise with the builder and key contractors to make sure the design intent is clear.

Selected furniture, furnishings and any custom items being made for you are ordered with my trade suppliers and installation arranged.
