Telling your story through your treasured items & creating interiors that
fit your lifestyle.
I absolutely LOVE creating spaces personal to you, that tell the story of your life and your experiences. I take the time to get to know my clients and really understand your lifestyle and the way YOU want to live. After all, life can be tough – you want a beautiful home to come home to.
Creating meaningful spaces for you and your loved ones to enjoy is the top of my priorities. I revel in nostalgia and I work with you to ensure that you get exactly what you want.
Whether you’re looking for cosy hygge, quirky mid-century modern, light and minimalist Nordic design or anything in between, I’ll use my experience to provide you with a completely bespoke designed space, packed with your personality!
I don’t just work with anybody. I take on a select handful of bespoke clients each year through an application process. Just like you need to make sure I’m the designer for you, I need to do the same…
So if you feel that I’m just the person to help transform your space, then click the button below and let’s set up a chat to talk about what you want!
Let’s have a chat about your project and what you’re looking for. I’ll run through my process and let’s see if we are a match. After all, working together needs both of us to be happy and this call will help us both understand each other better.
Once we’ve established that we like each other, I’ll email you the application form for you to complete with as many details as you can. It will form the basis of my fee proposal, so I would rather everything was on the table so that I can give you an accurate idea of your investment.
Once you’re happy that I can deliver your project and the investment is within your budget let’s arrange to meet on site where you can walk me through your dream space! This will also help me to refine any of my proposal and means we can meet informally before we start the project.
UNDERSTAND HOW YOU LIVE
To create a space truly unique to you, it needs to be tailored to your lifestyle and how you want to use the space. Since this is personal to all of us, we take some time to delve deep into your day to day and make sure I ‘get’ you!
DEFINE THE MOOD
I use your answers on the application form as a basis for our first meeting – a 2 hour design direction meeting. We’ll unpick everything you want from your space so I know exactly how you want it to feel. This gives me a really good foundation in what I design and suggest for each of your interiors.
PLAN AND CREATE THE SPACE
This is where I go away and ‘create’ your individual spaces. Using planning techniques, I create the best layout to accommodate furniture, structural details and any lighting you needs.
SOURCE THE DETAILS
Once you’re happy that the plans meet your needs, I’ll go away and source every item that is needed.
I’ll present you with a sample board with any hard, soft and fixed finishes as well as a detailed pdf and spreadsheet, with all the loose items (including images, prices, lead times).
DETAILED DESIGN DRAWING PACK
Once all the plans are signed off, I’ll create a detailed drawing pack for your builders and contractors to follow. This will include all specific details, such as tile layout drawings, design drawings of any bespoke items, as well as install instructions for any fixed items.
This is tailored to your individual project and so will vary. This documentation can be sent across to your builders for tender purposes.
TENDER & ON SITE
I can work with you on a consultancy basis to help you manage your renovation.
This means I can be on hand to help you with any on site meetings with your contractors, help you make decisions and even help with final snagging and final styling prior to your move.
Your project might include all or some of these deliverables:
♦ Extended in-depth consultation, to talk through your needs and wants
♦Design Direction meeting to discuss design styles
♦ Detailed scaled plans, with furniture and lighting placement
♦ Detail drawing pack with any bespoke items
♦ Mood and sample boards with supplier details, to get a feel for all the colours and textures and how they might work together
♦ A shopping list with key pieces of furniture, lighting, artwork and soft items all in one place, to save you loads of time!
Do you want a space to entertain your guests and friends, without always using excuses of needing to decorate?
Do you want to hand everything over to an expert – because you don’t have time and would LOVE an interior designer to create the perfect space for you?
Want a finished space that you can move straight into without, the hassle of working on the project yourself?
Want someone else to deal with all the contractors and trades people – so you don’t have to?
Do you have the money and the ideas but not enough time to make your dreams a reality?
Are you just making do with what you have?
Are you feeling frustrated and just want to blink and its taken care of?
YOU’RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE!!
“Aarti was absolutely amazing!! My husband and I undertook a major extension. With 2 young kids and demanding jobs, we had very little time to spend on our design dilemmas. Aarti was easy to work with, has great vision and creative ideas. She really took the time to understand our brief and get to know us. She was able to easily blend comfort and style to create a functional and tasteful space for our family. Thank you Aarti!”
“I wanted to select an experienced interior designer to work with me on a commercial / hospitality project. My criteria, was to find someone with a wealth of experience in the hospitality sector and importantly, a designer who listens and expands on ideas and is able to really go above and beyond what is expected to deliver on a dream.”
“We really love the way our items are showcased within the space, Aarti really managed to make the most of the art. A true representation of us as a family, we look forward to working with her on many more projects.”
“We worked with Aarti on a few occasions in a design consultation capacity, we already had the framework in place and builders on site but we wanted help with specific furniture, decorative finishes and guidance on circulation and planning . Aarti came in and offered various options on floor and wall finishes, tiling placements, furniture suggestions as well as offering some key solutions to our planning requirements. She totally understood our requirements, very flexible and easy to work with and was able to offer some unique suggestions for our home. We thoroughly enjoyed working with her and would recommend using her bespoke services.”
“Working with Aarti was refreshing, her communication and creativity was 10/10 and more than I had hoped for someone that didn’t have the resources of a large firm, however she was extremely resourceful and able to bring her contacts and ideas to the project, which impacted the outcome significantly. I cannot wait to work with Aarti again soon! Thank you!”
