Hello and welcome to Spacecrush
Spacecrush is an interior design studio, focusing on residential interiors. I specialise in complete fit-outs of one or more rooms, extension/renovation projects and complete homes. This includes specifying furniture, rugs, lighting, wall colours, flooring, wallpaper, window treatments, art and accessories.
“I love nothing more than working with a client who wants to make their space more functional and beautiful. People often have a vision of what they would like a space to look or feel like, but are unsure how to pull it together successfully. I help my clients make decisions and invest their interiors dollars wisely to create a beautiful outcome they will love every day.”
I also love designing bathrooms. My service includes designing the space, specifying finishes and fixtures and overseeing renovation and installation of the new bathroom. I provide 3D renders of the finished space so you can visualise your beautiful new bathroom in advance. I work with a trusted team of trades who execute the vision perfectly.
How does the design process work?
The first step is usually an in-home consultation where we review the space together and talk through your ideas, preferences and decorating objectives. This is where we dream! I want to know all about your favourite images, wish-lists and must-haves. As well as looking at beautiful images and inspiration, I also love to know what is working/not working in an existing space so we can make it more functional. I’ll start taking photos and measuring up. For new builds, it’s also helpful to look at house plans if you have them. Once I’ve got a feel for your style, I can give you a preliminary idea of the best direction for your space and what can be achieved for your budget.
DEVELOPING THE SCHEME
This is the fun part, where I start building an interiors scheme and colour palette that fits with the design brief. I usually do this in person, building a palette of fabric swatches, finishes, colours and images in front of you. For me, being able to touch and experience the different textures and finishes that go in to a scheme is an important part of the process. I also talk through the dimensions and configuration of key pieces of furniture so you know they are going to fit perfectly in your space. At the same time, we chat through quotes from suppliers, including trade pricing for the pieces I recommend.
ORDERING AND INSTALLATION
Once we’ve agreed on a scheme and decided on the pieces you totally love, we proceed to the ordering stage. I liaise with my suppliers to arrange invoicing and delivery of the goods and then help to install and arrange everything in position so it looks just as you imagined. If you wish, I am also available to style areas that need a bit of help, such as consoles, sideboards and bookshelves. I’d love to arrange and re-arrange any of your favourite things!
