Interior design “help and advice” sessions in your own home.
Are you embarking on a new design project and are stuck for ideas or would you simply like to add wow factor to an existing room? Sometimes all you need is a little inspiration or guidance and for those times I offer short interior design consultations in your own home in Eastbourne and Sussex for £120.00. A session will last around two hours and as you can see from Tonya’s comments below, we will be able to cover a lot of ground. However, if you need more time, this will be charged at £40.00 per hour.
Tonya had recently moved into a 1970s style house and was at a bit of a loss as to how to incorporate some of her existing furniture with new accessories. She wasn’t looking for redecoration, just ideas of what to buy and how to present each room to bring out its retro character! Before our session we had a chat on the phone so that I could find out her likes and dislikes, then she emailed me photos of the house and of the furniture and accessories she wanted to use, which gave me an opportunity to think about solutions beforehand to discuss with her. During the visit, I was able to offer ideas and suggestions on colour schemes, fabrics, accessories and advice on how to successfully incorporate her current furniture into her new interiors scheme.
Tonya had never used an interior designer, but as you can see from her lovely comments below, was delighted with the result!
“I would highly recommend Anthea if you need some design inspiration. Over a couple of hours Anthea provided me with a wealth of ideas for furnishing three rooms in my new home. She carefully understood my preferences, worked her ideas around a few existing items, encouraged me to consider things I might never have thought of alone, and left me with a long list of shops and websites where I will be able to source the items of furniture, soft furnishings, artwork, bed linens and lighting that we discussed. Now all I need to do is go shopping!” Tonya, Eastbourne
