Interior - design - 15 the firs

Working with an interior designer doesn’t need to be big budget

My absolute number one goal for 15 the firs interiors is to make my services accessible for all and I really want to offer advice and practical help in the way you want it.

Many of my clients dip in and out of my interior design services when they need me and I’d like to explain how this often works on a typical project.

Firstly, and most importantly I arrange an initial consultation at your home or the space that requires some interior design. This is an opportunity for us to meet and chat through how you currently use the space, what’s working for you and what’s not. It’s that easy!

Our initial meeting takes about an hour and is a chance for me to ask questions about what you wish to replace within the room, styles you like, the purpose of the space and who is going to use it. It can be useful for me to take a look at another room in your home so I can get a feel for how your home flows and your personal style and I often like to take photos and measurements to help me further down the line. It’s also the opportunity for you to ask any questions about how I work and what you can expect from me.

Sometimes I leave you with a few small things to do such as sending over images, screen shots of colours, furniture, fabric, and room layouts that have perhaps inspired you which can really help me understand what you’re hoping to achieve with the space.

After we’ve met, I will contact you with an estimate of how many hours your project will take so you are fully aware of potential timings and budget. We can work together to keep the cost down if you wish or I can manage the whole process for you, it’s super flexible.  My clients often ask me to budget for an initial consultation at their home and then I produce concept boards and a sourcing guide which gives them links to purchase furniture and accessories. This usually costs between £200- £280.

This is where it starts to get exciting! I will list out what I feel is needed, such as:

  • Mood boards so you can visualise how the room will look
  • A corresponding shopping list so you can click on the links to explore the suggested products in more depth and order, if you wish
  • An in depth to-do list where I can advise you on what needs actioning in each room such as moving furniture, storage solutions and home organisation ideas
  • Contact details, where needed, from my little black book of third-party trades to help you with any jobs that require specialists, plumbing, carpentry, decorating etc.

From this point, it’s up to you how involved I am. I am fully focused and available to you and can dip in and out of the project when required over several months, so you are supported every step of the way. We can arrange for me to revisit you at home – to liaise with other trades or just further develop the ideas and love nothing better than when new pieces arrive being invited back to style your space to make those mood boards a reality.

In a nutshell, at 15 the firs we offer a fully bespoke interior design service. I am passionate about all things interiors and truly want my clients to feel as excited about their projects as I do.

Here are a few quotes from previous clients:

Kim Bunce

“I must confess I was feeling apprehensive about inviting an interior designer into my home, but Kim was so friendly and made me feel totally at ease.”

“Kim has a great eye for working out how a room could come together and deciding what pieces we could keep as well as new items to purchase.”

“When Kim left, I felt so excited about how the room could look and was so relieved that I had  

found someone who could help me pull this all together. It was such an enjoyable and easy experience.”

Please feel free to call me for an initial chat about how we could help to bring your ideas to life.
