Our small and friendly team, here at Ophelia Blake are passionate about creating awe-inspiring interiors for our clients.
We will work hard, either independently or closely with you to create your \'faultless\' home, whilst ensuring your lifestyle, practical necessities and lavish luxuries are flawlessly incorporated.
We simply love what we do, seeing our creative influence and bespoke art-inspired approach transform ordinary spaces into truly stunning, warming and welcoming environments.
Do you dream of your property looking like those featured in \'Home and Garden\', then please stop dreaming, let us help make your dream a reality and get in touch. We will take you on your very own journey, ending with you walking into your picture-perfect property.
Firstly, we need to understand your brief, usually during a complementary face-to-face consultation. We use this initial meeting to listen, fact find, understand your requirements, and what you\'re looking to achieve, including likes and dislikes, as well as your budget. If you really are unsure of your style and would like to benefit from Ophelia Blake design expertise then we can develop a brief based purely on our meetings with you drawing on our interpretations of your personality and lifestyle.
Whether you come to us with a plot of land crying out for your dream home or wanting to redecorate a single room we work with you to interpret your brief and start to develop a creative narrative. During this time we like to visit site to understand the surroundings of the location even if this is before construction. During this visit we will take photographs and detailed measurements of any key areas and features. It is crucial that we have as much detail as possible in order to fully understand and realise your brief
Being a small team, you can be assured that we will manage your project with meticulous attention to detail and creative flair, as well as offering a personal contact that remains the same throughout your project
During this stage we will carefully interpret the brief and develop a creative narrative drawing on the information and preference that you have portrayed to us. We will curate concept mood boards, gather materials for initial discussion and development and test spatial arrangements with initial layouts, these may consist of floor plans showing furniture layouts and any structural changes that may be required. This is a very collaborative stage and we invite you our client, to give as much feedback as possible to ensure we are moving in the right direction, it is very important to us that we design and implement a scheme that truly works for you and your home
Once you have approved and agreed the concept designs we progress to the design development and detail stage. This means that all final furniture, including any bespoke furniture/ joinery and interior architecture drawings will be presented to you, along with any final finishes including curated art and accessories. At this stage we will also present a fully itemised breakdown of costs in line with your agreed budget.
This is when your dreams start to become reality .
Ophelia Blake will work as project manager/designer for all of the interior design aspect of works and will attend regular site meetings to ensure our designs are being carried out to their exact specifications and that the project is progressing as planned.
