Once you have purchased one of our virtual packages, you will receive a Welcome Pack outlining how to draw a floor plan, take the dimensions and any other important information we require from you.

Once we receive your brief, a floor plan, photos and payment we anticipate it should take 2-6 weeks depending on the type of package selected. To ensure the desired outcome the more information you provide the more smoothly the design process runs.

If you have heirloom pieces or pieces that you absolutely love we will work it into the scheme. Photos, dimensions and any furniture information on these pieces will be required.

A diagram indicating the existing and proposed layout of furniture, existing fixed built items and proposed joinery (as requested or suggested). Location of doors, windows and other openings are also indicated. Dimensions and notes accompany the plan to explain further what certain elements within the space are.

We can certainly design custom joinery to complement your room design. Custom / Built-in furniture is an add on to the Luxury Package and can be purchased when you make your selection.

A diagram indicating the existing and proposed layout of the lighting scheme within the space. We could suggest lighting solutions such as integrated within joinery, floor lamps, track lights, task lights.

The floor plan with notes calling out suggested finishes (such as stone, timber, fabrics). These finishes normally apply to the built surfaces within the room. Such as the floor, ceiling, and joinery where applicable.

These are some of our handy tips and tricks to consider when implementing the design.

We would treat this as three separate rooms when charging for our services but when designing, we will ensure it is treated in a way that is cohesive and as a whole. Kitchens, in particular, require a lot more detail and therefore take a lot of time to design. Get in touch with us at for further information on adding a kitchen, bathroom or laundry to
your package.

Please be mindful when you are ordering furniture, rugs, lighting and art there are normally lead times. We will state on the schedule provided what these will be. Lead times could range from 1-22 weeks depending on where and what you are ordering.

We are more than happy to do this and this additional work will be charged at our hourly rate. Get in touch with us at for further information or have a look through our Interior Design Services.

FF&E stands for Furniture, Fittings & Equipment. Equipment would only apply for kitchens and bathrooms. In these spaces we would work with you to suggest appliances and sanitaryware.

Our virtual packages allow for one revision only. To ensure that the desired outcome is achieved it is important that you provide as much information as you can on your design preferences and who uses the space. We have asked specific questions in the ‘Defining Your Brief’ that should provide a clear scope of work and brief for us to work with. For more information please refer to the T&Cs.

Absolutely, please get in touch at and we can work with you to discuss what package might best suit your needs.
