DESIGN & DECORATION
We provide practical and aesthetically pleasing interior design and decoration.
The interior design process includes the following stages:
The mood and style of the project is established in this initial phase. Client needs and preferences are discussed, noted, and used to formulate an approximate budget for the project as a whole.
Concept planning ↓↑
The 2nd stage of the project identifies functional zones and areas of the premises, and is designed to provide an overall vision of what can be accomplished. This stage includes:
Taking measurements and photographs of the ‘zones’ and objects in order to develop a measurement plan
Plans in relation to dismantling and reinstalling partitions, in addition to other construction works and the arrangement of furniture within the space
Ensuring safe delivery of contractor materials
Concept sketches ↓↑
Project style and mood is conveyed using concept sketches. Ceiling, wall elevation and floor plans are developed using chosen materials.
Concept resolution ↓↑
Photographs of selected areas and objects are used to provide photorealistic images of the overall design vision.
Detailed design ↓↑
Construction works are defined using a ‘kit’ which includes sketches of the interior design details, wall elevations and sections, and the approved rendering materials.
Statements and specifications ↓↑
The 6th phase of design sees the formulation of tables describing and defining all working materials. Statements and specifications include:
Specifications for doors
A statement of finishing materials to be used
Sanitary equipment specification
Specification for wiring equipment
Statement of lighting, furniture and equipment
INTERIOR DECORATION ↓↑
Along with the interior design we offer services of interior desecration. Today apartments with partial or full interior decoration are commonly presented on the real estate market of Europe and the United States and trends to become popular in Russia.
Most apartments and some houses are sold ready for living and have the final finish, installed plumbing and kitchen facilities. When the living space has all necessary for comfortable life you still may want to change something to meet your wishes and expectations.
The difference between the interior design and the interior decoration is that the interior decorator does not apply serious alterations to the living space. He doesn’t move walls and does not build the new ones. The decorator works with color, lighting, textile, furniture, and art objects.
Interior decoration service is for you if you have already bought the property partially or fully finished, but no serious changes or redevelopment is expected. You just want to personalize your living space according to your preferences using only color, lighting, furniture and accessories.
