A stylish home doesn’t just happen – it is carefully researched, planned and assembled. Design mistakes are often expensive or, at the very least, embarrassing. Whether you are a new homeowner without much money to lavish on décor, or are about to launch into a major re-structuring of your home, we can be of assistance.
We can do as much, or as little, as you need. We can fully oversee your project from start to finish or we can write a full specification for you to pass to a local contractor. Whether you are looking for something completely new, or simply wishing to change your colour scheme and add defining touches to an existing interior, Dufour Designs can help create a unique living environment, tailored to your individual requirements and lifestyle. And often, it’s the smallest design details in a house that really turn it into a home…. We can create bespoke furniture tailor-made to your needs, or even commission individual art pieces.
When you choose to use an interior designer to help you transform your home, you probably have a fairly clear idea of how much money you’re happy to invest in the project – and a rather vaguer one of what you’d actually like to achieve.
You’ll want to tell us as much as possible about your design aspirations. And we’ll want to know all about them – so that we can turn them into a stunning reality that meets, or, better still exceeds your expectations. But, the chances are, you’ll feel less inclined to tell us about the budget? And we need to know about that too!
In order to create the home of your dreams, preferably without exceeding whatever budget you have in mind, we need to establish at the outset the maximum budget that you’ are able to allocate to the project, and what your priorities are. Not so that we can charge you accordingly, but just so that we make viable suggestions whilst making every effort to keep the total spend within your budget.
Similarly, it is important that we understand where your priorities lie. For example, there is no point in our proposing the perfect pair of £6,000 designer sofas, when you would accept ones at a third of that cost in order to then justify splurging out on the fabulous rug, fireplace or artwork that you’ve set your heart on!
