1: DESIGN PROCESS
We tend to have ‘a look’ we are trying to achieve before we start to look out the specific colours and fabrics. This can be inspired by the latest exhibitions, social media, travelling and magazines, as well as keeping up with the latest interior trends.
2: PAINT, WALLPAPER AND COLOUR
The look we are evoking will dictate the palette, texture and pattern we use on the walls. It could be pared down minimal using mostly paint finishes, or more decorative using wallpapers.
3: FABRIC AND FLOORING
We like to mix texture and pattern. It works to layer the textures and add pattern or colour as a contrast. We choose the flooring as a base to ground it all after the fabrics have been chosen.
Accessories allow us to introduce texture and decoration. Cushions are great for adding colour or pattern and there is a much wider range of rugs available now to create more layers of interest.
We use classic designs for the main pieces of furniture which allow us to juxtapose some more interesting occasional furniture in the space without it looking cluttered. The main pieces will remain timeless and can be accessorised to change the look.
Lighting is so important to create the ambience of the space. We always layer the lighting starting with the simple fitted ceiling lighting and then add interesting wall, floor and table lights which can be objects in themselves.
7: FINAL DESIGN
We always try to use the latest trends in fabrics, colour and accessories to show clients what can be achieved in the showhome whilst still retaining a classic feel. It’s very important to create a cohesive flow throughout the house to give a feeling of space, harmony and comfort. We hope that we help clients to visualise the houses as homes.
