about me

Below are a few examples of my interior style, design principles and the style I bring to each project.

Of course, each project is different and I bring different styles according to what the project calls for.

minimalism

My designs are paired back, sleek with a simplistic clean finish.

I believe in creating spaces which allow the mind to feel calm and relaxed and to me, this is achieved with minimalism.

Using Scandinavian design principles, I incorporate wood and textures in soft finishes.

textural

Feeling cosy and warm is one of my core design values.

I often achieve this with textural finishes, layered upon each other creating a laid back relaxed feeling.

The basis of my are designs is to create an elegant, effortless look. You won’t find chunky pieces here!

colour

Colour is very prominent in my designs and rarely do I design without it. Colour gives energy, life, joy and so much more!

I’m happiest when I work on projects with colour and believe it can totally transform a room into a completely different space with just colour alone.

I’ve studied colour psychology so that my designs can fully harness the benefits of colour for my clients.

faq’s

How much are your design fees?

For renovation projects, once we’ve had an initial call (and possibly a home consultation) and discussed your project and what services your project needs. 

I will then provide you with a Design Fee Proposal based on the services that you require. 

All fees will be provided to you with a breakdown of my services before we commence work.

What is your lead time?

For renovation projects with project management, this can take 6-9 months or more depending on a number of factors including but not limited to; the scale of the project, tradesmen availability, supplier lead times etc.

For e-design, the turnaround time is 2-3 days.

How much support will I receive?

For renovation projects, we will be in contact throughout the entire process and this will be part of the service I provide to you. There are no extra charges for support.

Can you recommend tradesmen?

For renovation projects, I will go out to tender, source the appropriate tradesmen for the project. The client makes the final decision when hiring tradesmen. 

How do I purchase the items?

For renovation projects, I place orders on your behalf and I will be there for each delivery to ensure the smooth running of the project.

For online interior design service I will provide you with a shopping list with a direct link to the product in the design.

What is a Room Layout?

A room layout is also known as a floor plan is a drawing of your room from a birds-eye view.

Both renovation and online interior design services include floor plans and pictorial furniture scaled to the manufacturer’s measurements so that you can see what the proportions of the furniture will look like.

This format gives you a sense of scale and assurance the items I source for you will fit in your home.

What is a 3D Drawing?

3D drawing takes the visual experience up a level with 3 dimensional drawings. They provide you with a life like, virtual experience of what your kitchen would look like as if you were physically in the room.

It is a great way of seeing furniture items to scale before you make big purchases.

Do you supply and install furniture?

I’m afraid I do not hold any furniture stock however for renovation projects I source, purchase and ensure furniture is installed.

What if I don't like the designs?

For renovation projects we will be in constant contact where there will various iterations and changes so you will always be abreast with the design of your home.  

For online interior design service I offer two rounds of revisions if you wanted to make any changes.

What is your refund policy?

No, sorry. I don’t provide refunds on services carried out. As UK consumer, I do provide you with a 14-day refund policy however I do not carry out any services during this time for business reasons. You will be able to waiver the cooling-off period.

Please note: It is really important that you share my ethos for design. This will set a strong foundation for our relationship and the services I provide to you. A lot of people have a misconception that designers can design anything. To give you the most value please take a look at my portfolio to see if you like my style and ethos.
