How Does This Whole Look Business Work?!
Usually when I start working with a new client, they haven’t ever worked with a decorator before. It’s not really a service you need all the time so it’s understandable that you wouldn’t really know exactly what to expect. It can be a lengthy process if you have a lot of rooms that need to be fully furnished, or it can be a quick job to find you some new artworks.. I thought it might help to break down the process here on the blog to give you a better idea of how involved the actual process is. The process works very similarly for Decor too but we just skip the initial consultation and final styling and do this via email or Skype.
Step 1: 1 Hour Consultation
Step 2: Design Plan
After meeting with you, I write up a quote for how long I think the process will take to source products and any other services we discussed in the initial meeting. Once I have full sign off from you I get to work sourcing furniture, homewares, art, textiles, wallpapers etc. we discussed to finish off your room and present this to you in the form of a PDF document with a design brief telling you exactly how the process will be implemented.
Step 3: Design Process
Once you’ve approved which pieces you’d like to go ahead with, I start ordering the furniture and decor and arrange delivery so your rooms can start taking shape! If some of the products are available from retailers then you can go out and purchase those pieces in your own time and start collating all the goodies!
Step 4: Styling
I style the room with the new furniture and decor pieces and add the finishing touches to complete the room(s).
Of course, each project is tailored to you and your home so we don’t always follow this process exactly but it gives you a good understanding of how it all comes together and what you can expect from our first meeting.
if you’d like to book in for a consult they are obligation free so if you decide not to go ahead that’s totally fine, the process isn’t one you get locked into so you can opt for as much or as little as you like.
