At StuartBarrCDR we often have the opportunity to take a project from start to perfect finish and as a result our design input has evolved over the years into what is now a stand-alone professional interior design service. Our already established design team has been joined by Rachel Knight, founder of Vintage Chest Design and Rachele Bowley, originally a designer for the fashion industry, who has more recently turned her talents to the world of interiors.
The SB Interior Design service can be broken down into 4 components depending on the extent of our client’s requirements:
Design scheme with layouts and sample boards
Fixtures, fittings and furniture plan with supplier listings
Fixtures, fittings and furniture procurement
Full project management service
An initial site meeting allows us to establish requirements and understand the scope of work, enabling us to give customers an idea of the time and costs involved. There is no charge for this consultation.
Once instructed, an assigned designer will take a full client brief in order to get a deeper understanding of requirements, both functional and aesthetic. Mood boards will be produced as a starting point for discussion, followed by layouts, elevations, sample boards and development of a finished scheme.
A consultative approach is taken throughout the process, as we believe that the client’s personality should be at the heart every project. Where the client requires a totally outsourced approach, perhaps for a commercial project, the scheme will be based on current trends, as well as the architecture and character of the space for which the team are designing.
If required, a supplier listings can be provided, as well as procurement, installation and furniture placement. A portfolio of trusted and innovative suppliers makes sourcing of all interior fixtures, fittings and furnishings an exciting experience rather than an exhausting and often fruitless trawl.
Supported by StuartBarrCDR’s pool of professional fitters, decorators and electricians, the SB Design team has the expertise they need at their fingertips, to enable not only design and sourcing but also a complete project managed service.
