How it Works:

The intial consultation is free and will normally take place in your home. This is to talk through the project you have in mind and agree the level of help you require to help you achieve your desired outome.

I will then provide a written scope and quotation for your project which will include details of any drawings, mood boards etc, and my fee.

Full Design Scheme:

A full design scheme will include all of the following elements.:

  • Moodboard/colour scheme
  • Floorplan to scale and showing positioning of furniture and accessories
  • Design Board giving you exact recommendations and samples of all aspects of the design, that is flooring, paint colours, wallcoverings, fabrics, furniture, lighting and accessories.
  • Lighting and Electrics Plan


Any additional drawings outside the original scope will be charged on an hourly basis.

Moodboard/Colour Schemes:

This will involve a furher consultation with you to look through images and to discuss your tastes and style.  I will then go away and produce a moodboard for you.


A moodboard/colour scheme is a board of images and samples showing you ideas of colours, style and finishes for your room and gives you an idea of how a scheme works together.


This can be a great tool if you have an existing room that you are looking to spruce up but are struggling to come up with ideas on what will work with your current flooring, furniture etc.  It is also a great starting point for a full design concept as it provides a visual image of what you hope to achieve and inspiration to go ahead.

Design Board:

A design board is a board showing you specific recommendations for paint colours, walloverings, fabrics, furniture, flooring accessories and lighting and is normally produced once the client is happy with the moodboard. 

My fee for a design board will be set for the room.

Spacial Planning/Room Layout:

This involves a site visit to measure up and a discuss your exact requirements.


I will then produce a floorplan to scale outlining the best positioning of furniture, accessories etc to help you achieve a well balanced, efficient, comfortable space.


This can be very useful if you are struggling on how to furnish a difficult shaped room or you are embarking on a new extension and want to envisage how the space will work with the furniture

Lighting and Electrics Plan:

Lighting is often overlooked in the planning stage and is sometimes ignored completely.  It is however, a very important aspect of interior design and can make a huge difference to the look and feel of a space. It is essential in assisting the functionality of a room as well as creating mood and balance.


A site visit to measure up and discuss the usage of a room is required to understand its lighting needs.
