Bringing designs to life

Mar 22, 2015 | Anoushka's Blog, Interior design and decoration

Part of what I do during a design process with a client is to help them visualise what the room will be like once completed. All of the small decisions, choices and selections along the way add up to an overall design. What often happens is that my client will get stuck on one small detail, and can’t stand back to see the bigger picture. It’s my job to ensure that the design stays true to the look and feel that we agreed upon at the beginning of the process.

The only way to do this is once all furniture, decorative items, fabrics, lighting, window and floor covering have been identified, is to collate all of these choices into an online design concept board. This allows you to view the design in it’s entirety, enabling a better visualisation of the room in question. Accompany this with a furniture placement plan and this should give you a complete sense of the room.

Below I have shared with you some of my recent designs, room by room, client by client to give you a flavour for style trends, what you can find in the local Australian suppliers right now, and how to pull a room together with either a specific style, colour palette or piece of furniture in mind.

I hope you enjoy and I’d welcome your thoughts and questions on any of these designs.

Happy decorating!
