how can we help?
Our clients are busy professionals who struggle with interior design choices because they just don't have the time, inclination or expertise about where to start; design just isn't their thing. They may have an idea, but the whole thing just seems too overwhelming. What they're looking for, is someone who can manage the whole process, from concept through to completion, and truly understand what they want and need.
Taking a structured and tailored approach to every project, we work across both furnishing projects, and large scale renovations in partnership with architects and builders; entire homes or just kitchen and bathroom redesigns. We take the stress out of the whole process by managing everything from start to finish, but also taking you along for the ride to help us ensure the end result is exactly what you envisaged, plus more.
So how does it work?
consultation....the first step
this one hour in-home session, allows us to meet face 2 face and develop a full brief for the project. We'll discuss your problems and aspirations for your home, what styles you relate to, your lifestyle, and generally get to know each other better. Following this meeting, we'll develop a structured proposal outlining the full project brief, how we can help and associated fees.

"Despite the tight timeline, Charlie delivered really creative and well thought out design ideas for everything from the colour scheme to wall tiles and lighting. Her advice on the design, functionality and finishes for the custom cabinetry in the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry was invaluable. The final result is amazing and totally exceeded our expectations. Engaging Interiors by Charlie was by far best thing we did during the renovation process."

"We were looking for some objective professional advice about the flow and floorplan of the lower level of our older character house, and some creative ideas. Charlie provided some really excellent, practical and pragmatic advice about changes we could make on a 'light-touch' basis, without the need for major structural work. She has a very keen eye for how to improve use of space, and modernise, whilst keeping changes sympathetic to the rest of the home."
