Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I hire an interior designer?
Ever bought a piece of furniture that looked so good in the store, but was too big once you got it home? Ever painted three or four times trying to find the right color palette? It may seem like like an oxymoron because you’re going to have to pay the additional designer’s fee, but the truth is that hiring a designer can help you avoid costly mistakes and help you make design decisions that will increase the value of your home.
What is your design style?
We design in all styles but here are some examples:
What cities do you work in?
Our head office is in Johannesburg, but we operate nationally with branches in Port Elizabeth, Durban and Cape Town.
I live outside of your locations, can you still work for me?
Yes! With branches in JHB, PE, DBN & CPT and modern day technologies (Zoom & Microsoft Teams), we can serve all areas in and outside of South Africa
Why you instead of an in-store decorator?
We work with your space, your requirements and any parameter you choose. We can restyle your home/office with pieces you already own or do a complete overhaul.
What is the sequence of phases that my design project will go through?
After an initial briefing of your project, we will then arrange for a site visit followed by a quote, and if approved we will get started on turning your dream/ideas into reality.
How do we get started?
Send us an email and one of our designers will get back to you and walk you through the process.
Do you offer design packages?
The short answer is yes. They do change seasonally and can be found under our services.
How long will our project take?
Every project is unique, we assist in small renovations or moving sofas a little to the left, to full construction projects, building your space from foundation to rooftop.
Will I be working one-to-one with a designer?
Yes, most projects are allocated to a designer, but there are larger projects that might require a team.
What if I am unhappy with your designs?
We work to satisfy your design needs, if you are not happy with our proposal, we will revisit it and find the perfect solution for you.
Is any project too small?
Absolutely not! We are here to assist, even if you just need a new bedside lamp.
Do I need a designer if I only want help with new furniture?
Not necessarily, but our designers have an eye for detail that you might miss. We do custom furniture too, so if you can't find that perfect element, we are here to make it a reality.
How do you charge?
After our initial briefing with you, we will send you a quote and upon approval, a 50% deposit is required for us to start working on your project.
