where it all started
what is e-Design
E-Design is a hands-off approach to interior design, where we are able to offer you an online service, that is a simple and therefore more affordable alternative to our full interior design service.
This service is the ideal solution if you want some design direction and expertise but are happy to manage and oversee the project yourself. With e-design, you can tackle the design of your property one space or room at a time, at your own pace and as your budget allows.
We ask you to fill out our simple online questionnaire, gathering from you all the relevant information we need to understand your vision for the space. Taking all this information and your brief, we then work on creating a custom designed plan for you that serves as a do-it-yourself guide.
We take the lead on a detailed vision for your home and then work in tandem with your architect and builder to see that vision through to completion.
Full Interior Design Service
For those who want a more hands-off experience when it comes to their refurb, we can step in and take the load off. So, how exactly is this different to our E-Design service?
During the design phase, we consult on your architectural plans, select interior and exterior finishes and consult on plumbing & lighting fixtures. When we’re done, it’s all compiled in a comprehensive design package and handed off to your build team.
2. Build observation
During the build, you can expect ongoing communication and site visits as needed to ensure our vision is coming together as planned. We’re on hand throughout the entire process to answer questions and provide clarity for your general contractor & trades.
With construction underway we start work on the furniture and décor. We select furnishings, artwork, rugs, window coverings, and decor to bring your spaces to life. We take care of ordering & receiving, and when construction is complete we coordinate with our trusted movers and installers to bring the vision to life.
To see a full run down of our process and how we work with our clients, please see below.
We ask that you provide us with as much information as possible, including inspiration pictures and plans / photos if you’ve got them. his step is importnant as it helps us gauge whether our process and look are a match for your project.

If your project sounds like a good fit, our design manager will schedule a Discovery Call with you to discuss the project in more detail and make sure we’re the right people for the job. From there, we’ll submit a proposal which includes a quote for our professional fees as well as a realistic project schedule.
Once a contract is signed and your deposit is paid, we head into the Pre-Design phase. This involves finalising the budget and schedule, connecting with your builder and artchitect and establishing the design direction through mood boards and sample boards.
Based on the established budget and direction, we get to work with designing the entire space, considering every single detail. Once done, you’ll receive an email linked to your design presentation and folder.
You’ll then have the opportunity to review the design plan and we can tweak things as necessary to make ssure the design is just right.
Once construction is underway, we get started on your furniture and decor design. We start with having you approve an itemized budget and then get to work on the good stuff. When it’s ready, we’ll present your design and again make any tweaks necessary. Throughout the build, we will be on site for any questions your contraactor may have and to make sure our vision is coming to life.
We order absolutely everything, and either receive & store it ourselves or arrange a receiving warehouse in your area.
The best part: Install Day(s)! When your builder has finished and handed off the keys, we coordinate with our movers and handyman to get everythingn moved in, set up, and ready for you. It’s all-hands-on-deck for a few days as we hang every picture, fluff every piloow, and prep your property for the final reveal!
