STEP 1 - Design Brief

This initial step provides the foundations for a successful interior design project. Our team considers every aspect of a new interior design commission with meticulous detail so that the interiors we create are tailored to the precise requirements of the individual. We work closely with our clients, repeat or new, to ascertain their precise wishes, timescale, budget and desired outcomes when structuring an interior design brief. This provides the starting point for any new project we undertake.

In order to create spaces that accurately reflect a client’s lifestyle, aspirations and personal preferences, we take the time to understand their personalities and needs. We then incorporate realistic timelines and accurate costs, consider any structural restrictions and produce a comprehensive proposal of exactly what we can deliver and when.

Your style - not ours

Unbound by a house style, Designed by Woulfe is not restricted to a definitive interior design aesthetic. In turn, we proudly offer a truly tailored design service that is customised to each client’s personal style and takes into respectful consideration the requirements of the project and the architecture of the property. Our team meets any possible limitations which arise in the design process with enthusiasm and dedication.

We determine exactly what the client wants from their home and how they see the space being used. There may be structural work which needs to be carried out or an extension built. At this stage we not only listen but also provide inspiration based upon our years of experience in crafting luxury interiors.

Concept development

The design concept serves as a visual aid that appeals to the individual taste and style of a client. The aim of this initial stage is to create a cohesive design scheme which will bring their vision to life. We transform the dreams, ideas and requirements presented to us into reality through careful planning at this crucial stage.

Once we have carried out a property survey of the spaces to be designed, we will delve further into the design details and how the client’s personality and lifestyle can inform the interior design style of the property. When working on aspirational show homes and other commercial properties for developers, we consider the demographic and lifestyle needs of the target clientele as well as the requirements of the key stakeholders.

Visualise your interior space

A watertight interior design concept is integral to the successful execution of a design project however large or small. With this in mind, we work closely with our clients to interpret their brief and ensure their interior and lifestyle goals are met. The team puts together practical examples and references to communicate how the space will look and feel. We can create detailed renderings which encompass floor plans and furniture plans and present these alongside imaginative mood boards and palette ideas for colours, materials and fabrics.

Upon presentation of a comprehensive, clear-cut and authentic illustration of how the space in question will appear on completion, we will work with our client’s feedback to develop a final interior design concept that is tailored to their precise requirements. The wealth of experience we bring forward combined with our design instincts and steadfast determination to fulfil each brief to the letter enables Designed by Woulfe to transform ordinary spaces into truly extraordinary homes.

Designed by Woulfe was appointed because of the attention to detail needed in an environment which is both historic and fashionable. It was that detail that allowed the past to be entwined with the present and future. I would recommend Designed by Woulfe to anyone because of the understanding and quality of the design and workmanship.

STEP 2 - Design Development

After the concept development stage has been signed off we work diligently to develop each design to the highest standard. This is where we pin down the specifics of the interior design project at hand. Every detail of the concept, interior layout, construction and overall appearance is developed through architectural planning and design drawings.

Electrical, audio/visual and lighting plans will also be finalised at this stage as well as decisions based upon the design aesthetic. A comprehensive list of the hard finishes, soft furnishings, wall treatments, floor coverings, furniture, joinery, fixtures and fittings will be put together. Keeping specific requirements in mind, our studio will also design bespoke furniture if desired by the client.

Creative collaboration

We understand the value in creative collaboration. In light of this, our studio will bring on board a host of experts in their respective fields to seamlessly integrate a client’s requirements into a design scheme. This means we’ll work alongside lighting designers, audio-visual specialists, security consultants, and a host of other collaborators to ensure that any user interface or technological system that needs to be included is straightforward to use and easy to maintain.

Exceptional craftmanship

Carefully selecting the best people for the job at hand, we place great importance on collaborating with respected teams or individuals who deliver to the same exceptional standards that we adhere to at Designed by Woulfe. This is reflected in high-quality, bespoke interiors which present exemplary craftsmanship and retain maximum value.

The initial design was stunning and enough in itself to give us confidence in our designer. Co-ordinating the various suppliers was a considerable task but was accomplished with aplomb... The outcome is really all we could have hoped for and we would certainly turn to him for any project in the future.

Step 3 - Realisation

After the design development plan has been approved by our client, we then work closely with trusted architects, project managers, contractors and suppliers to ensure that the interior vision is brought to fruition. This is when we implement the interior design scheme we have created and it all comes to life.

We partake in regular site meetings in order to ensure that clear quality checks are being considered, timelines remain accurate, work is being carried out exactly as planned, and projects stay within budget. Our team works closely with the contractors and FF&E supply chain to ensure our design is implemented successfully.
