Details make perfection, and perfection is not a detail
– Leonardo da Vinci

Our Approach

Finding a designer you connect with is vital to the success of your project. To achieve the optimum design for you, we need to invest the time to learn about you, your family, lifestyles, and aspirations for your property. This intimate process requires a high degree of trust and comfort in your designer and we are very honoured and grateful when clients put their trust in us. However we do understand that not everyone can be of the same mind so we welcome the opportunity to meet with you for an obligation free chat. This initial meeting gives you and Angella the chance to explore some ideas and determine if you can establish an affinity and work closely to successfully deliver your vision.

Explore & Create

Following the initial meeting we begin to explore the possibilities by drawing out your vision, understanding your lifestyle and objectives for your project. We seek to understand any structural or administrative limitations, challenge thinking, and offer exciting suggestions. We discuss your timescales and budgets and begin to undertake preliminary investigations of the property or areas to be designed. Over several meetings, space, volume planning and conceptual designs are further developed, layouts, and styles are explored and mood boards and floor plans are produced to assist with your visualisation.

When layouts and styles are agreed we then develop these concepts further, getting into the detail of primary materials for floors, walls, etc with a view to the overall finishes, lighting, materials, etc. Working with your architect we develop technical drawings and details for the build. This provides your contractor with clear requirements for structure, lighting & plumbing layouts. During this phase we also start to develop various schedules such as sanitary, ironmongery, furniture, fittings, and finishes. We engage further with the wider team and supply chain to pull together detailed budgets and time scales. 

It’s All In The Detail

With construction underway we develop in greater detail the designs for bespoke joinery and furniture items, lighting, etc. We work with your contractor on the specific interior detailing and advise on and liaise with specialist craftsmen, artisans, and subcontractors. With this greater detail of granularity budgets and implementation timings can be finalised. 

With Focus & Determination

While construction is taking place we continue to manage the design by coordinating with the contractor and suppliers and in the procurement of furniture, lighting, rugs, accessories, etc. These are carefully planned and coordinated by us to ensure readiness to dress and style your completed property. We also oversee the installations of specialist interiors subcontractors and craftsmen, inspecting their works, and assist your project co-ordinator with identifying and resolving defects. Quality is in the detail and our approach and attention to your vision will ensure we create your uniquely beautiful environment.
