Many of our clients are interested in how we actually create a design, and we enjoy working with our clients and explaining the interior design process. Here is a quick peek behind the scenes at how we developed the interior design scheme for one of the bedrooms at Easton Grange.
After several meetings with the client, we worked on defining the clients’ brief for their beautiful Suffolk farmhouse. They particularly wanted the age and traditional elements of the building to be respected, yet the design had to appeal to a contemporary audience. We interpreted this brief by collecting hundreds of samples which would incorporate this idea, and editing them one by one into loosely defined colour groups. Again the colour groups were edited to find the most appealing fabrics, in terms of colour, texture and pattern. We chose vibrant fabrics in peacock blues, raspberry reds and moss greens – some of the motifs were abstract butterflies, and others were stripes or ikat prints – all of which added to the modern feel of each scheme.
Once this process had taken place, we distilled the ideas even further, and allocated each fabric to a particular use – ie curtains, soft furnishings etc. Our favourite elements of the scheme are the curtains with 3 different bands of fabric. Our clients were very brave to trust us with such an approach, and they are delighted with the finished result.
