Each interior designer has its own way of working and approaching a project. This may depend on the client, timelines, needs and style. The technique that we approach a design will always be different from one project to another as all the projects are different by their own means.
'Design is to communicate not just to decorate'- Unknown
If you give Google a quick search on how interior designers work and what would they do - this is the 'definition' that comes up the most:
"Interior designers make interior spaces functional, safe, and beautiful by determining space requirements and selecting decorative items, such as colours, lighting, and materials. They read blueprints and must be aware of building codes and inspection regulations, as well as universal accessibility standards."
Whilst this may be true and relevant in many cases, we see things differently and we have a different approach on what an interior designer should do and therefore, our way of working and approach may be a little different than the usual interior designers.
Getting to know each other.
The first step that we take, and maybe the most important for all, is getting to know each other. The first impression it's crucial. It can sets the vibe of the entire collaboration so we have to make sure from the beginning that we understand each other and we share the same values and approach.
At this stage, we will ask a lot of questions and you should too. About anything that comes in your mind and you might think it will help you understand how we work and make sure that we are the right fit for you.
In order to understand the space and be able to enhance every aspect of it and design it through your own needs and likings, we will need to see the space at a very early stage of the project. To save some time, it would be really helpful to plan your first meeting with your interior designer at your home.
Initial conversation and agreement on style and design .
After seeing the space and having some insides of the clients needs and preferences, we set up a meeting to discuss and agree on styles and ideas of the new home planning. Presenting a few ideas of different approaches that may be suitable to the client's lifestyle and the house and setting the final design approach together. Depending of the client's needs, we can also set up a budget-plan so we can make sure we keep everything in check.
After we have agreed on the style, we will create your design concept using different medias. We will create dimensioned plans and elevations, and realist renderings of ambient.
Creating an interactive 3D model allows the client to get a better sense of the atmosphere. At this stage, we present the final concept and different types of furniture, textiles, materials and providers for the proposed furnitures and decor.
Site control and at home assistance.
Depending on the service and the "design pack" that we have agreed, we will make sure that we will give you our assistance for the whole process of designing and decorating your interior architecture. We make sure that everything will be designed, manufacture, fitted and decorated just perfect for your new home.
