INTERIOR DESIGN SERVICE
Our Interior Design Consultancy has a clear goal – to efficiently deliver our clients’ interior design expectations.
INTERIOR DESIGN SERVICE
In our experience, there are several approaches:
- Clients who are very clear of what they want, how it will be done and are looking for advice on specific items or the best way to order furniture, fabric or other items.
- Clients who are less clear on the end result and want to discuss options and ideas.
- Clients who are starting to think about a design project and want to brain storm options.
- Clients who have time constraints and want limited involvement bar agreeing the scope and require The Lost Corner to manage the project.
Or any other variation of the above!
Whichever approach we take, we want the end result to be the same – that it was an enjoyable and rewarding experience, and that we helped our clients achieve their design vision in a creative and pragmatic way, including as much clarity on costing as possible.
An important part of this is asking the right questions, and getting as much of the plan agreed as possible before starting. Louisa is also a qualified psychotherapist, and has found that the discipline and training behind asking the right questions and fully understanding the project goals has been an important and surprising addition to her design business.
I was brought up in a beautiful home surrounded by wonderful fabrics, embroidery, lampshades, trimmings and hand-painted antique furniture. A delightful combination of colour, texture and creativity. Surrounded by such inventiveness, taught me an awareness of craftsmanship and the value of the skill and workmanship that goes into these creations. In a world which is increasingly fast-paced and prone to instant gratification, I love nothing more than to immerse myself in the work of upholsterers, curtain makers, lampshade designers, etc whose work takes time and effort and whose creations contain a subtle ‘spirit’ which is so often lost in mass produced, machine made items.
It is my job as an interior designer to guide and support the client in creating their own unique interior design and to facilitate their creativity and ideas. Interior design can be a wonderfully creative process and above all, the experience should be fun, exciting and rewarding.
I like to begin with what is already there, as more often than not, it contains all the elements required to make a beautiful design. Sometimes ‘less is more’ and my work can be as much about small changes and reorganisation as elaborate creative commissions. My work as a psychotherapist has taught me that unnecessary time and expense can be saved by carefully thinking through the goals of the interior design and sometimes a single beautiful chair, lampshade or vibrant cushion can make a room.
