Our process involves identifying your design style and creating an overall feel for your home by analysing and assessing the space in which you will live whilst focussing on consistency between rooms.

Decorating with the goal of achieving visual balance can be challenging, the key is the right placement of furniture and decor. Consideration of items, pattern and colour are key aspects in the selection process. To create that overall cohesive look in a home, the furnishings, floor coverings and fabrics need to be complimentary. Lighting is one of the most important elements in decorating and yet it is often overlooked. Thought and planning will create that beautiful space, decorative lighting = art.
Window treatments play different roles in each room of the house. Selections can be purely decorative, some aid with filtering or blocking out light and others assist with privacy screening. Window treatments are the decorative finishing aspect to any room. The selection process is extremely important as the dressings are not something that you replace very often. We work closely with curtain and blind manufactures to achieve a quality flawless result.
Why are we drawn to certain colours and patterns? Where does inspiration come from and, most importantly, how do we translate that into a workable plan for our own homes? Colour is a starting point but, through careful dissection, looks at how other elements of a room come together. Pattern, texture, function and atmosphere are all vital aspects that can make a room not only look stunning but also serve its purpose and establish the right mood and spirit.
