Our Process

Congratulations! You have made the big move and reached out for assistance for your Residential or Commercial Interior Design Project. Where to from here? We have created a 5-step process to ensure a hassle-free project from start to finish. Particularly in the early stages, this focuses on a personal connection, trust and understanding your needs and tastes.

The primary purpose of a discovery call is a free 20-minute chat to introduce each other. We discuss your project in brief and how my services align with your requirements and assess if we are a good fit for working together.

After the call, should you wish to proceed I will email you a Booking request for an Initial Consultation.

Initial Consultation

The Initial Consultation is undertaken onsite at the premises (if practical). It is an opportunity to meet you in person and get to know you, your family, lifestyle, any particular preferences you have for style/themes, walk through your project either physically or with floorplans you may have and discuss your design needs and expectations of engaging an interior designer.

At All Design Co. we find this an important stage of the process as it builds a personal connection, trust and an understanding of our clients’ needs and tastes.

At this face to face meeting we will discuss the project overview and establish the scope of work. This includes the type and purpose of space (residential or commercial), rooms involved and your goals you want to acheive from the design.

To ensure your expectations are aligned from the beginning I find this meeting a good time to openly discuss your prediction on the Project budget and desired timeline/schedule for completion.

The Initial Consultation is a flat fee payment for a two-hour time slot. The fee includes travel to and from the location in greater Sydney.

In preparation for the meeting you are encouraged to (but not essential) provide some inspiration images or examples of spaces you particularly like. During the meeting you are welcome to take notes, ask questions and share any information with me you feel might be useful in relation to your project.

Post meeting I will gather the information and develop a fee and services proposal outlining the scope of work and next steps.

Project Commencement & Concept Design Overview

Upon acceptance to proceed as per Fee proposal we proceed onto Stage 2 which involves a detailed scope of work and create a design concept that aligns with the client’s vision.

I gather inspiration through mood boards, color palettes, and style references. Included in this stage (if applicable) is evaluating the available space and create a scaled floor plan (not for construction). Tailored to each project, the design documentation for Stage 2 may include;

Ensuring materials are fit for purpose, durable, aesthetically pleasing and within budget.

Sample board of colours & finishes provided if applicable.
