Interior design process
The design process of high-end London interior designer Jo Hamilton to deliver stunning luxury interiors on time and on budget
CLIENTELE & PROJECTS
Jo Hamilton Interiors works with homeowners, developers, investors and businesses alike to produce stunning interiors on budget and on time. Interior design commissions have ranged from exclusive city apartments to stylish country retreats; from showhomes and restaurants to offices and hotels.
Listening to and understanding our client is vital to the success of any interior design project.
At the initial meeting we discuss the client’s needs, personal tastes and how they work, or will work, within the space so that we get a clear view of their hopes and aspirations for the property. We use this information to tailor the interior design to create a totally unique finish that suits the client perfectly.
There is no charge for the initial consultation. A nominal design fee is agreed at this stage in order for Jo Hamilton Interiors to produce designs that are presented to the client at the next stage. This fee is recoverable against the supply by Jo Hamilton Interiors of items specified in designs. Items supplied are priced at the RRP.
Interior designs are put together to fit the client’s budget.
A design for each room is presented, showing the colour scheme, furniture pieces, lighting specification, floor finishes, fabric palettes and room layouts.
Photo-realistic CGIs are used, as appropriate and where requested, to help the client visualise the scheme.
Following the initial presentation, schemes are revised where necessary, until the client is completely happy.
Construction and fitout
Jo Hamilton Interiors offers a full architectural and project management service on build projects in Greater London and the Home Counties.
We have teams of architects and builders we regularly work with from the initial concept to the finished turnkey solution.
Should the client want to work with their own preferred architect or builder, we are very happy to work alongside them.
Our attention to detail ensures a smooth experience for our clients and a high quality finish to all our projects.
Our project management fee is charged either by the hour or as a percentage of the build cost, whichever the client is most comfortable with.
Fabrics, wall coverings, accessories and floor finishes
Jo Hamilton Interiors sources and supplies fabrics, wallpapers, furniture, accessories, floor coverings and all other relevant components for the scheme.
Curtains and upholstery
We offer a full soft furnishing, upholstery and curtain-making service.
Furniture, joinery and rug design
Jo Hamilton Interiors can design bespoke furniture, kitchens, bathrooms, dressing rooms and libraries to suit the client and the property perfectly.
We can also design and manufacture beautiful bespoke rugs.
We work with art dealers and can acquire art and antiques on behalf of the client.
It is of the utmost importance to us that clients feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the process, so it is vital that costs are clear from the outset and are tailored to fit the budget set by the client. We always work within the budget set by the client.
Fees vary according to the room size and the scope of works. A detailed quote is sent following the briefing meeting.
The interior design fee covers the sourcing of the furniture, fixtures and fittings, fabrics, wall-coverings, floor finishes and all provision of relevant samples for the client to review.
It also covers floor plans and furniture layouts. Photorealistic CGIs are quoted separately, as requested.
Some clients prefer to manage their own designs and just need guidance and advice.
Fees are: half-day £800 (four hours) or full-day £1,500 (seven-hour day including lunch).
