Sarah, our in-house Interior Designer works closely and collaboratively with all of our clients for all interior design and styling needs to create a home that reflects our clients’ personality and lifestyle. At the beginning of any project, Sarah will liase with clients to work on their design brief and any specifications they may already have. Once this initial consultation has taken place, Moodboards and flatlay inspirations are created to assist in creating a visual story of what the project will look and feel like upon completion.
Colour Consultancy is one of Sarah’s areas of expertise. At the beginning of any project, Sarah puts together a colour palette for both exterior and interior surfaces.
Exterior Colours: Roof, fascia, gutter, windows/doors and wall colours all make up part of the colour palette and are an integral part of creating a sense of cohesion from the outside to inside. Generally once the frame is up and the house is cladded, the decision process on exterior wall colours begins. As part of this process, 3 colour sample options are explored and brought on site to see how they work with roof & window colour during different lights of the day. A preferred colour is carefully selected to work in with selected roof & window/door frames.
Interior Colours: Once exterior colours have been selected, the Interior colours take centre stage. Similar to the exterior colour palette selections, 3 samples are generally selected as options for most or all walls inside the home. Not all homes have painted walls though, some designs can incorporate different textures such as wall paper which can add further depth and interest to a space. During the time of selecting interior colours, wall paper designs are also carefully considered.
