Services

I undertake residential projects of every size, from refreshing a single room to managing the redesign of an entire house.  I can recommend colour schemes, window treatments, decorative finishes, storage solutions and source furniture and accessories to suit every taste and budget. I work with trusted tradespeople who can carry out each aspect of the project professionally, but am equally happy to work with your own preferred tradespeople. I have trade accounts with a number of suppliers, whose products cover a wide range of price points and styles. I am fully insured and follow the BIID code of practice.

Most importantly, I work closely with you – the client – to ensure that you are 100% delighted with the finished design.

Please read on to see my full range of interior services:

Full residential interior design service

A bespoke interior design service, including space and lighting planning.

All furniture, fabrics, wallpapers and accessories sourced and purchased on behalf of the client.

All contractors and subcontractors are overseen, co-ordinated and checked as part of the service.

Kitchen planning is carried out with specialist kitchen designers.

A 5-stage process:

  1. Investigation

Following an initial conversation about the scope of work required and timescales, Olivia will make an appointment to visit you at home where she will take a full brief. If the project comprises several rooms, this could take 2-3 hours. This briefing meeting is charged at £60 per hour.

  1. Inspiration

After the meeting, Olivia will indicate how she will proceed: typically this will involve her producing a mood board, sample board, and plan for each room. Samples and costs of all proposed items to be used in the scheme will also be supplied.

Olivia can give an estimate for the number of hours (charged at £65) this stage will incur, or work to a budget ceiling if you prefer.

  1. Presentation

The design proposals are presented, and amendments made following feedback. Olivia will use all the information gathered during the briefing meeting, plus her contacts with a huge range of high quality interior suppliers, to put together inspirational mood boards and stunning design solutions.

At this stage you will be invoiced for stages 1-3 prior to proceeding further. You are free to either proceed to implementation or to break the contract at this point.

  1. Implementation

Following sign off from the client, work can begin. Olivia will order all necessary items and materials for the project and will either appoint subcontractors, suggest trusted tradespeople or meet with the client’s preferred tradespeople. Costs incurred at this stage are charged at the standard hourly rate.

  1. Completion

Olivia will inspect the completed job to ensure that the client is fully satisfied. Once this has taken place, the final invoice is submitted.

Children’s bedroom service

Choosing wallpaper, curtains, lighting and furniture for your child’s bedroom can be an overwhelming experience. You want something that looks good and will last more than six months, and they just want whatever’s in fashion (or what their friend has). There are some good ranges available on the high street, but there are some beautiful, affordable brands that can only be found at specialist suppliers.

Olivia will help you and your child find the perfect bedroom – and to make the whole process as fun and simple as possible! With a mixture of high street finds, specialist children’s furniture, wonderful inspirational wallpapers and gorgeous window treatments, her proposals can be tailored to suit every budget.

Home staging and clutter-busting services

 Having trouble selling your home? I also offer a home staging service, with cost-effective remedies to make your property more saleable. I provide advice on quick fixes that can be carried out to make your home more appealing to potential buyers.

If the clutter has just got too much, I can help with storage solutions, ideas to reduce clutter and streamline your life.

Both services are charged at my hourly rate of £65. If it’s a particularly large job, a project fee may be agreed.
