I get very excited about good design and would be delighted to work with you on your project be it big or small. I strongly believe that your house should tell the story of who you are. It should be filled not only with people that you love but also with those things that fill you with joy.
I am confident that together we can make your house a home that family and friends can enjoy. Rickward Design studio has the know how to design spaces that are stylish, yet functional and most importantly - fit within your budget.
IN PERSON DESIGN
I love sharing all my design knowledge and believe that beautiful rooms are rarely by accident; rather they are created with confidence & know how. I enjoy working for homeowners who require full creative input in their homes from concept through to completion however I am equally happy to act as a ‘sounding board’ for clients who have their own ideas but are keen for a second opinion. I believe that I can help clients to grow their vision and extend their thinking in ways they may not have previously considered. I get excited to deliver rooms that are beautiful and exceed expectations and whilst I love for my designs to stand out and inspire I am just at home creating spaces that are as soothing as they are comfortable.
My in person range of services include colour consulting, interior decoration and styling.
Colour is my world - my dreams are always in technicolour and I love creating spaces that come to life with their considered use of colour. I strongly believe that life wasn't meant to be lived in beige and enjoy encouraging my clients to be 'a little bit brave' in their choices. Whilst colour is part and parcel of all interior design projects I also happily offer colour consultations as stand alone projects – from single rooms through whole houses.
Preparation of paint schedules for interiors and exteriors
Selection of products, materials and finishes from bench tops & tiles, flooring and everything in between
I love nothing better than making sure every element comes together in a space to create a considered and beautiful environment. This includes:
Spatial Planning – thinking of how furniture will best be placed in a space to maximise flow and functionality
Appointing materials, fixtures & finishes to ensure a beautiful and cohesive end result
Acquisition of furniture, lighting, art, rugs and accessories
Considering style, form and function of lighting
Specifying window treatments & other soft furnishings
Styling brings together the finishing touches to a space – like the jewellery that completes an outfit to perfection.
Selecting homewares and accessories to finish a room
Installing and arranging furniture, objects and artworks – integrating with existing as required.
