Full Service Interior Design

Jane provides an end-to-end service for her clients, taking care of each project from start to finish with exceptional attention to detail. In this way she ensures that every project not only runs smoothly, but realises her unique creative vision.

Whether you are working on a simple make-over for one room or renovating a whole house, all projects begin with a two hour Design Consultation. This first step will give you design inspiration and a clear way forward for your project, plus the opportunity to meet Jane and get a feel for how she works.

Following the Design Consultation most clients will then proceed to the second step – Full Service Interior Design. However, we understand that plans evolve and timescale change, so if for any reason you decide not to move forward with the project, you are under no obligation. You will however walk away with a valuable set of design concepts and ideas which are yours to implement when and how you wish.

If you do proceed to Full Service Interior Design, this is where the really exciting work starts. Jane will create concepts, plan and develop the design and produce working drawings for your contractors. Next she will project manage the implementation before the final styling completes your project.

“I chose Jane Ashton after being impressed by Jane’s own beautiful home that I had seen in Period Living magazine.

Jane gave me plenty of ideas and encouraged me to explore colour schemes and styles that I would never had considered.

I am delighted with the finished result and could not have wished for a better advisor”

I loved working with Jane, she gives you great confidence. Her great skill is putting it all together with finishing touches you wouldn’t dare to try alone, she gifts you a home that makes you smile every time you walk through the door..

Our Process in more detail

Step One – Design Consultation
Jane will visit you in your home for a two hour consultation to review your space, find out how you use it and get to the heart of what you want to change.

After the Design Consultation Jane will process all of the information to produce your Client Report and Proposal. This includes conceptual ideas for space planning, lighting and décor schemes, scope of work, outline of the design process, fee proposal, contract and deposit invoice.

The Design Consultation fee is £295. A non-refundable deposit of 50% of this fee is taken on booking to secure the date, and the balance in due on or before the consultation. Whether or not you decide to proceed to step two, your valuable Client Report is yours to keep.

Step Two – Full Service Interior Design
Once the Proposal has been agreed, contract signed and deposit paid, the project can begin.

Full Service Interior Design includes:

Concepts – images, colours and textures and language are used to create moodboards that define the creative vision for the project and are used to develop the decorative scheme
Design development – design drawings with space planning, furniture layout and lighting plans in 2 and 3D allow you visualise your finished room. Sample boards with colour and fabric swatches are also produced.
Presentation – designs are presented to you for approval and your questions answered.
Working drawings – these are used to obtain quotes from contractors and produce the final budget before appointing the contractors.
Implementation & project management – Jane will ensure the design is implemented correctly, attending regular site meetings and keeping client informed of all progress.
Furniture installation and styling – once all building work is complete, furniture and fittings will be installed, and final styling takes place.
Fees for Full Service Design are based on the requirements of each individual client.
