What was the project?
Jane approached me for an Interior Design Consultation after attending a Style Party where a discussion about her wardrobe space became a more in depth chat about her renovation project!
When buying their house several years ago aware it would need major works over time, Jane and her husband Dan initially focused on the key areas, like bathrooms, and getting the kitchen more family – friendly with some light re-decoration throughout to freshen up.
Now in a position to undertake some of the more major elements of the renovation they were interested in a consultation to discuss space planning of the Living Room and get some ideas for their daughters room and living areas.
What did we do?
Jane and Dan had already got the ball rolling with some of the works and had researched some ideas and styles they already liked.
Prior to the consultation we had a quick catch up via Zoom so could cover the basic needs, wants and no-gos for the project.
We shared a Pinterest board to get a sense of the style they liked enabling us both to understand the direction we wanted to go with look and feel ahead of our meeting.
At the consultation the main focus was the Living Room and adjoining kitchen/diner to discuss space planning and flow options as with several access points, windows, alcoves and a fireplace repositioning it was a causing a bit of a dilemma.
After looking at fabric swatches, paint charts and pulling magazines and other sources together for inspiration, we walked around the remaining rooms discussing action plans and next stage renovations – we packed a lot in to 2 hours!
The follow-up report summarised the full consultation, featuring recommendations from myself for specific design elements, colour themes, and space planning recommendations.
Below are some images taken from the report.

What Jane says
“Alice has been so great in helping us to move forward with our house renovation.
Our biggest hurdle was visualising how best to use the space, but by sharing her expert ideas and guiding us through our many questions, Alice helped us to see the potential in our home and to picture ourselves truly living in it!
We can’t wait to continue working with her and to bring our new vision to life.”
