We are all ears! Ophelia Blake will work closely with you from day one, listening and working to understand all aspects of your business including, your brand and culture, the competitive landscape and significantly, your ambitions and vision. This early stage is critical to get those creative juices flowing and for Ophelia Blake to truly get \'under the skin\' of your business providing inspirational ideas which create the desired ambience to excite and galvanise you and your customers.
We believe this is fundamental in ensuring the vision we create in collaboration with you is fully aligned and compatible with aiding the future success of your business and providing you with a positive return on investment.
A goal without a plan is just a wish! During the \'Concept\' stage Ophelia Blake will develop a \'creative narrative\', by carefully analysing the information gleaned from the \'Brief\'. We will provide a creative interpretation of your vision by utilising our experience and undertaking focussed research. Importantly, during this stage we will curate concept mood boards, gather sample materials and develop spatial arrangements and layouts for collaborative testing and discussion. Ophelia Blake has a proud heritage of varied expertise, spanning across, architecture, construction, art and interior design. We provide our clients with a variety of technical and creative drawings to assist in the demonstration and realisation of how our ideas will translate to a finished workable design, aligning to your vision and business ambitions.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started! During \'Design Development and Costing\' we will firstly work in collaboration with you so we can agree and approve the concept designs before progressing and refining a detailed proposal. Within this stage, Ophelia Blake will create and present a \'final design pack\', providing interior architecture and technical drawings as required. We will identify a full breakdown of all interior design specifications including, but not limited too; electrical and lighting layouts, wall and floor finishes, bespoke artwork and carpentry, furniture and furnishings.
At this stage we will present a cost breakdown specific to our client\'s requirements and budget.
Seeing is believing! Essential to the effective delivery of the \'Design Implementation\' stage, our approach is focussed on ensuring we have quality craftsmanship and execution at the core. Ophelia Blake has an extensive network of specialist trades and partners to provide an offering which is scalable to meet our client\'s requirements whether that be design-only or delivery of the end-to-end vision. Fundamentally, our approach ensures the delivery of our work has an unmatched level of quality and attention to detail.
Ophelia Blake recognise that our clients require their interior designer of choice to take ultimate accountability and responsibility of the project delivery. We have considerable experience in Project Management and our approach is focussed on delivering the optimum level of assurance and oversight. This includes regular site meetings to ensure our designs are executed as per the specifications. As part of our process we will provide client reports giving full visibility of any risks and issues and providing confidence of the project progress against the targeted timeframe and budget.
The devil is in the detail! Ophelia Blake are committed to providing attention to detail and believe that \'Dressing and Styling\' makes all the difference from ordinary to extraordinary. By this point of your interior design journey, there should be the effortless translation of your original creative narrative to the space you are stood in. This is achieved by ensnaring the senses and evoking an emotional reaction to those in the space. We will carefully curate your new space including full coaching to your staff on how to manage your new interior going forward and create the perfect ambience for your business.
This isn\'t goodbye! Once project completion is reached we will undertake a full project delivery handover. As part of this final step of the process we will present a \'project completion pack\' including all details of works that have taken place and any important information that you may require to maintain your new interior design, from light bulbs to paint colours. Our project completion pack will also include full risk assessments where required and any testing certificates or warranty documents. Ophelia Blake are devoted to client aftercare and as standard provide 12 months warranty on any works completed. Your designated Account Manager will work mutually to agree periodic catch ups (even if it\'s just for an informal chat).
