tailor-made for you
Building or renovating and don’t know where to start when selecting all the finishes you need?
I work with clients to plan their finish selection from tiles, paint, flooring, joinery, door hardware and bathroom/kitchen fixtures, through to the interior colour scheme. This process ensures a cohesive look for your home, that’s beautiful and functional.
Need some advice on colour? I offer an in-home colour consultation, including a report detailing all products and colours for your project. Paint is a great way to refresh a space, create a mood, and tie together your furniture and furnishings to create a cohesive look that you love.
Studio Black’s consulting service is tailored for when you need a little hands on interior design advice. I offer consulting at an hourly rate so it can be customised to suit your needs. This flexible approach allows you the choice of deciding what services you require for your project. Perhaps you’re after some feedback on floor plans for a new build, some advice on colours and finishes for a renovation, or tips on room design or styling to achieve that ‘finished look’.
Sourcing furniture and accessories
It’s the small personal touches that really tie a space together to make a home unique. I work with clients to find and select furniture and accessories for their home, using my little black book of retailers. I can create a mood board of ideas and provide you with a list of product recommendations or we can go shopping together where I can guide you with my experience and expertise.
The design process
We meet for a chat
The first step is a 30 minute consultation where we will discuss your project, talk through your ideas and get a good understanding of what you’re hoping to achieve. After the consultation, you’ll receive a detailed quotation. Once the quotation is accepted, the fun begins on designing your dream space!
We work together
During this step, we will talk about the style of interior you’d like to see in your home, likes and dislikes and the budget for your project. This will be the driving force behind the design process. I will then work on the design concept which involves building the colour palette, collecting physical or electronic samples and working on the finer details of the design, such as the selection of fixtures, finishes or furnishings. I’ll then complete a full set of documentation to assist you to purchase the products, or provide the information that you need for your builder or tradesman.
Once your project is complete (after construction or you’ve received all your products for a room installation), I can assist you to pull it all together and add the finishing touches to create your dream space and have it look just like you imagined. I am also happy to style any areas that need a little help with your new or pre-loved items.
