tailor-made for you
Building or renovating and don’t know where to start?
I can assist you in all aspects of your project, from working with your architect and builder, to providing you with a customised approach to finishes, joinery design, spatial planning, lighting design and decoration.
I work with clients to plan their finish and fixture selections from tiles, flooring, joinery, 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 in-home colour consultations to help find the perfect interior or exterior colours for your home.
Studio Black’s consulting service is tailored for when you need a little hands on interior design advice for smaller projects. I offer consulting at an hourly rate so it can be customised to suit your needs. Perhaps you’re after some feedback on floor plans for a new build, some advice on finishes for a renovation, or tips on room design or styling to achieve that ‘finished look’.
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 to style 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.
The design process
We meet for a chat
The first step is an initial in-home consultation. We will discuss your project, talk through your ideas, your likes and dislikes and the budget for your project. I’ll provide you with design advice and recommendations. After the consultation, you’ll receive a quotation – all work is quoted up front, so there are no surprises down the track!
We work together
I will work on the design concept for your project 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.
