Interior & Exterior Design
Obtaining my clients brief and establishing a detailed scope of the work and decoration including budgets and timing, no matter the size of the project. Project Management in collaboration with an architect and the specific trades related to larger projects. Where there is no architect involved I will manage individual installations such as new bathrooms and kitchens. Interior design and decoration for both residential and hotel projects.
Collaboration with top garden designers to ensure perfect cohesion between interior and exterior design. Sourcing and sampling all materials from flooring, carpets and custom-made rugs, kitchens, bathrooms, lighting, paint colours and effects, wallpaper, fabric, furniture and antiques including silverware, china and linen. I design and provide hand-made curtains and upholstery of the finest quality. I will advise on the choice of artwork and recommend the best arrangement for hanging pictures. My network of suppliers, of both contemporary and antique items is international.
I attend the major fairs and exhibitions relating to furnishing and interior design. My clients need to know what a project will cost and when it will be delivered. Estimates and deadlines and all choices of materials are agreed before work begins. I go out of my way to satisfy particular requirements and to make sure every project is unique and individual. I will organise your housewarming party.
I believe that repeat business is the best recommendation. Client’s way of life is important to me. Whether they are using their favourite colours, pictures and possessions or beginning with nothing, this close relationship is the best starting point for any decoration project. I have a family background in textiles and trained as a bookbinder so texture, colour and fine finishing are important to me.
