Find pictures and samples of what you like, no matter how outrageous! Include fabric samples, magazine pictures, paint colours or any other material that inspires you. Collect and save these in one file so it’s always handy.


Our first appointment is very important as this allows us to tour your home, understand your priorities and offer initial suggestions. We’ll explain the process of working together and explain exactly how we can help you achieve your design goals.  It’s here that we establish the 'brief' which will guide us along the way. 


This is critical as the amount you wish to spend will determine how big the project becomes. Budget is determined by how much renovation work is required and how much furniture and accessories are needed. If structural works are also required, then this must be considered in the budget before any décor selections.


You can choose whether you want to have us as 'design consultants' only, where we provide colour suggestions, material options and offer a list of places to shop. This is for those who like to ‘do it themselves’.

Or, you can choose to have us do everything for you, with your guidance of course. Alternatively, settle on a mix of the two: let us take care of a select number of projects and you handle the rest. The choice is yours.


When we know what has to be done, it’s time for you to commit the time and money to finish your dream space. Remember, projects will take the time they require. We will do our best to speed up the process but it will all happen in fair time.

For example, it generally takes 8 – 10 weeks for furniture, drapes and materials to be installed. Custom cabinetry and fixtures can take up to 12 weeks. Accessorising will take approximately 4 weeks.
