The first step of the project is to meet you (in the property ideally) and get to know your desires for the space in question. How will it be used? Who will be using it? Where is it situated? What do you like? What don’t you like? Most importantly, what is your taste and how would you like it to be reflected in your space? These are just some of the things that will come into play during the design process.
· Personal service to design and implement a complete scheme for your home/room, including all furnishings, fixtures & fittings, window treatments. Initial meeting is free. Commitment fee of €900 + IVA which is fully refundable on anything bought with me.
· To design and project manage on your behalf, this can be a full renovation working with builders, or just a bathroom or kitchen design. To be your one point of contact for your complete renovation. please contact me regarding the fee, as project needs vary tremendously.
Of course, if you’re one of those people who just prefers to leave everything to the expert, that’s fine too.
Once the project scope has been agreed I prepare a design presentation (which can be done in person or over a combination of email and skype) where I will show you a spatial plan; with all suggested furnishings drawn into your home plan, any structural and architectural changes (if desired), physical samples of finishes and fabrics, colours, lighting, furnishings and joinery.
Each element of the scheme is presented for discussion and costed for the client to approve and sign-off. If necessary, full working drawings are prepared for the appointed trades, E.g. electricians, builders, carpenters.
Project Management and Procurement.
(Construction only) Progress of the project is managed on site and any issues arising in the course of the project are resolved in order to maintain quality, budget and programme. On-site meetings between myself and tradesmen occur as often as necessary to ensure the design is executed as planned.
I take responsibility for procurement including liaison with EU-based and international suppliers and logistics companies. Orders and deliveries are programmed so that they arrive at the required time to me, they are checked for any damages to avoid last minute nasty surprises on installation day
Installation, Dressing and Snagging.
I coordinate the delivery and installation of all furnishings including window treatments. Ensuring they are unpacked, cleaned and put in place as per our layout plan.
Artwork and home accessories are normally included, to create the finished look, or I can dress your new interior with your existing treasures, to give each room your own personal stamp.
