Design is a very widely used word. It is applied to any process where an outcome is being planned rather than relying on chance.
In many cases the word ‘Design’ is used as a synonym for ‘plan’ so here is how to select the level of planning that you require:
No idea where to start? I can help with concept design for all projects to give you a starting point that you can then work on yourself or engage me for further services when you are ready. This option works particularly well for new home owners requiring help placing existing furniture or artwork into a new space OR business owners opening their first office or store. * Hourly rates available.
Bad colour selection will detract from the value and amenity of any space. Lady Darwin specialise in using bold colour but love all colours equally. Having studied colour history as well as colour psychology I can provide a complete service that incorporates all interior and exterior finishes for your home or business.

Complete home design
Working with Builders, Developers and home owners alike for new build homes or renovation projects from concept to completion, catering to all budgets. Colour and furniture selections as well as the blending of new and old pieces into your home, this selection is important in creating a look that showcases your own taste, while complimenting the age, architectural style and scale of your home or space. Selections will blend and enhance furnishings, fittings, and artwork while taking into consideration the use to which the space will be put.

Selection of finishes
The selection of finishes is a vital part of creating a stylish, comfortable and functional space. The integration of finishes must complement the architectural design as well as the requirements of the space into which they will be fitted. This can be done on site or externally with the aid of images, plans and samples if required. * Virtual design (online from afar) also available for this service.
