Can I do the Interior Design?


For many people it’s not so much “Can I do the interior design” but more “Should I do interior design myself” Other people ask us “When do I get an interior designer in?”   Here’s some of the initial thoughts:

1) I know what I want, I’ve got the photos, but I’ve not got the time

2) It’s an extra project cost that going to stretch my limited budget

3) A designer might ‘takeover’ or ‘sabotage’ my dream design


Of course you can but would a few experienced pointers help? A professional interior designer is there to help you and work alongside you, managing the design and providing choice.

We help many a clients with as little or as much help as they fell necessary, often a single meeting.   They’re the type of clients who want to run the project themselves with a little support, guidance and designer expertise for the times when:

They’re too busy to shop for the floor tiles

They can’t decide on a paint colour and the decorator’s starting tomorrow

The electrician needs a lighting decision now!

We help you at the times when you’re more than capable of making the decisions but the added time pressure and project schedule doesn’t work with your diary and available time or hinders your clear thinking.

As a DESIGNERS ON CALL we provide hourly consultations for those tricky moments when all you need is an hour of our time for a clear and decisive decision to keep on track, thus saving you project time and keeping within your budget whilst creating a gorgeous home.


Since the beginning of this recession we have had more clients coming to us because they have a fixed budget and they don’t want to overspend or make the wrong purchases.

We work closely with our clients to understand what they want to achieve, what their dreams are and why they are undertaking the structural changes.   From this we can advise them where they should spend their budget for maximum effect.

As a DESIGNER IN YOUR POCKET we provide specific design knowledge and product advice so that our clients make informed choices to remain within their budget and timeframe to create a gorgeous home.
