REMOTE DESIGN PROJECTS

 

Great for those who are far afield, would love a Making Spaces design and are happy to do the work themselves. Suitable for single room designs only, not whole properties or renovations.

Here's how it works:

1. Two hour remote consultation.

 

First hour: I work through your brief, images of the space in question, floor-plans and room measurements and any ideas you have or Pinterest boards you have collated. The more information you send over, the better. 

 

Second hour: A one to one on Skype where we get to meet (virtually), chat in more detail and discuss some initial ideas.

2. With all of the information from the initial two hour consultation I get to work on your design. Your personalised design package will be emailed over to you, normally within five days and includes: 

Digital mood-board and/or wall elevation(s)

Pinterest board with suggested finishes, furniture, furnishings and accessories with links to where to purchase. I often Pin several options per item so you have some flexibility to make small changes

To-scale floor-plan. Very important so you can see the layout and how the individual elements fit in your room 

Any additional information required to explain and support the overall design

 

3. One hour's follow up via email where you can make small changes to the overall design.

4. Now it's over to you. Time to get to work on making your new space. Good luck!

Fee - £800 per room

The remote design pack is the equivalent of 16 hours. If you feel you need more time to perfect the design or help to finish your room after completing your design package, you're welcome to book additional time which is charged at either £65p/hr or £400 for 8 hours.

Fee is based on an average sized, single use room. Larger, more complicated spaces may cost more. Not suitable for whole houses, building projects or renovations.

Additional fee for technical drawings and detailed joinery plans.

REMOTE DESIGN CASE STUDIES 

All before and after images used with kind permission of remote clients

"We chose Karen to help design a room in our Arts and Crafts house following a google search and finding some wonderful room designs that she had done. She was really easy to contact and responded promptly explaining the option of remote design. It seemed to fit our needs and so we went ahead with it. I sent an email and a link to a Pinterest board detailing the dimensions of the room, what we would like to use it for and photos showing things we would like to include as well as images detailing our tastes. We then followed this up with a 1 hr skype chat where we could go through it in more detail. She was really friendly and instantly put us at ease. Once she had a good idea of our project she went to work and shortly after we were given the details of our design. I cant stress enough how happy we were with the plan. She took all our ideas and pulled it together in a fantastic design that we both loved. She managed to come up with ideas we never would have thought of but that also fitted our brief perfectly. We followed her plan pretty much to the letter and now are super pleased with the finished design. She really gave us the confidence to go bold with the design and I would thoroughly recommend her services to others."

“Working with Karen was phenomenal. My hubby and I couldn’t agree on how to decorate our new place and so we brought in Karen to, essentially, mediate. She helped us figure out what we wanted in our living room and we both agree that hiring her was the best decision we’ve made together as a newly married couple. She was smart, very professional and came back with amazing furniture and design suggestions that fit our budget. Getting interior design advice from Karen made the whole process far less daunting, and now we love our living room.”

“The colours were popping out, the pictures were more beautiful… Our room is on one hand warm and cosy, but also stylish/modern. We are so happy with the result and we felt so comfortable straight away. Thank you so much!”
