Interior Design Advice

We offer an hourly design consultancy service for clients looking to add creative flair to their home but are not yet ready to engage an interior designer

These one-off meetings are a cost effective way to access our interior design expertise and insights such as colour and design theory as we brainstorm ideas to solve a specific problem or need you have.

Our tailored approach is perfect if you’re not ready to commit to our full management service or concept-only package. 

You can unlock the potential within your home with our expert guidance. And, if you need additional interior design services in the future, we’ll be here for you. 

What you can expect

Access to our interior design knowledge & insights

Together we explore what you want from your home and the questions you need to be asking yourself. We’ll also share our ethos behind how we design and plan space and you’ll then get a written summary of our discussion to help guide your next steps.

Colour & style analysis

We will have a general chat about the style of your furnishings to try and decide what might work best for you – and the property. Tim will explain a little bit about colour theory – where to start with a colour scheme and how colours work together. This could be a great starting point for you to run with the interior design yourself.

Idea brainstorming

Designing is very much about exploring your options, weighing them up side by side and carefully considering what might work best in that particular scenario. We often find our clients have already considered many of the available options and just need an expert steer to get them going in the right direction.
