Virtual Interior Design is an innovative approach to curating your home that refuses to be limited to location. It opens the world for you to work with a designer who brings an array of inspiration ensuring you are involved in the process no matter where you live. Virtual interior design creates an opportunity where design draws not just on regional relationships with creators, suppliers, and artists - but on global ones.
Every process begins with a conversation where I aim to understand how the space will be used, how you want your space to feel, and the story you want your home to tell. I firmly believe that the ability to create beautiful interiors is available to all of us and that having guidance and support along the way can create a more exciting and rewarding experience.
Once the vision has been created, you’ll receive a comprehensive plan with layout, colour suggestions, decor elements, furniture selections, and a suggested shopping guide. Due to the unique nature of virtual interior design, I have developed relationships with artists and artisans from around the world, including my own line of photographic prints. Don’t be surprised to fall in love with decor items from countries you’ve never visited.
With ample opportunities to review the design, and get the support you need to bring your space into reality, I am with you every step of the way answering questions and supporting you in making decisions. Feel at home in the knowledge that the story and vision you want for your space will come together.
Every great space begins with understanding function and vision and this is where we start when we meet for our first video call. Before the call, you’ll be asked to complete a thorough questionnaire so I can learn more about your lifestyle, goals for the intended space, ideas, inspiration, and any areas of concern. You will be supported in how to take photos, videos, and accurate measurements of your space using my detailed guide. After our conversation, I’ll confirm the next steps and when you can anticipate the design concept.
The second phase is where the design concept for your space begins to take shape. Based on our first call and the information you shared, I curate a set of images and ideas to reflect the overall vision for your space. I might draw inspiration from your lifestyle, a piece of artwork in your collection, or something more abstract, like how you want the room to feel. You’ll receive a presentation with images, furnishing ideas, and colours. Your feedback is received and changes are made until it feels right.
In the third phase, the design for your space really begins to come together with two key elements - the design board and your floorplan. Drawing on the inspiration from phase two, I select and source all of the elements that will bring the concept to life with the presentation of a design board. Furnishings, lighting fixtures, artwork, decorative accessories, colour palettes, and materials are included. The suggestions are presented to give you an idea of how elements will come together in your home.
The second part of phase two includes a detailed floorplan in addition to the design board. This helps you to visualize how the space will function and flow. Additional drawings and elevations will be shown as your project requires. This is where you really begin to get a sense of how your space will be transformed, and how you will use the space.
By far the most exciting part of the design process for most of my clients, the third phase is where you receive 3D renderings. The renderings will show you exactly how your space will look right down to personalized details like flowers on the table or a scented candle by your bed. The 3D renderings are your guide as you implement and install each of the sourced pieces for your home (see next step, Shopping Guide). They give you a strong vision of how everything will come together. You can see how high to hang your art, how to style every surface, and truly experience your space coming together.
This fourth phase of the project is where your room begins to come together in reality. You will be presented with a personalized clickable shopping guide of all the items you see in the 3D rendering. The clickable button will take you directly to the corresponding store where you can invest in furniture, decor, and other elements. The list will honour your budget and any conversations or concerns expressed through the design phase. The list makes it simple for your to select, purchase, and have your items delivered to your home. Rest assured that every item selected for you is done so with your space and your vision at heart.
In this final phase, your space begins to transform as you implement your design. During the final completion stage, I am available for 1 month to assist you with any questions or concerns you might encounter. This is where paint is applied to your walls, new flooring is installed, and furniture is placed in your home. I am committed to making sure that your project is implemented with ease, and that in the final stages of your design, you feel proud of and at home in your space. I am available to assist with final paint choices, material selection, furniture decisions, and the overall design process.
