Why use an Interior Designer?
Our clients have many different reasons for using us, here are some of them:
- For inspiration – you know you want something different, but you don’t know quite what.
- To tie a scheme together – many people find individual items they like but are unsure how to make all the elements of a room work together.
- To source interesting and unusual products.
- To help plan. Mistakes can be expensive and wasteful.
- To save money – yes really – see above!
- To project manage, when life is busy or you want the end result without the hassle.
What is sustainable design?
There are lots of detailed explanations around but in a nutshell, sustainable design for the home means doing our bit for the planet when we make changes to our home.
Lots of people like the idea, but are worried ‘eco’ will cost more, not be as good or simply don’t have the time to do the research. This is where we can help.
We’re not raving eco warriors who will push you into anything. We understand that not everyone can make the really big changes. We simply believe that if more people do what they can the planet will benefit – and so will our homes.
Staging & Styling
Home for Sale?
Home staging (or ‘property styling’ as it’s sometimes called) is a process that can help you sell your home quickly for the best price.
