Dispelling the Myth-Interior Design doesn't have to be expensive!

I've had lots of amazing feedback since I launched the website.  I wanted it to look beautiful and stylish to show exactly what we can do.  The only downside is that some people think it looks really expensive which is not necessarily the case...

I thought I'd share with you a budget plan for my most recent project.  This was for my toughest client yet, my youngest daughter Emma, aged 9. Although she is a girly girl, the brief she gave me a wish list that included blue walls, a double bed and a new carpet!

The starting point was the wallpaper.  After looking for something a bit fun, I found some lovely duck egg blue polka dot wallpaper.  We colour matched it with Valspar paint and the woodwork was painted with Egg shell. I also painted the cream bookcase a lovely crisp white with chalk paint.  The wardrobes and desk were existing items in her room, I simply re-planned the space and purchased accessories to compliment the other items and bring a fun coordinated look.

I've listed all the additional items below, just in case you're interested:

Shopping list

Polka dot wallpaper - 2 rolls £12.00 total from Wallpaper Warehouse

Paint-Colour matched Valspar paint from B&Q - £39.99 for 5 litres

Bed-Ikea Liervik double bed-  £95.00

Animal Print x4 - £9.99 each from Art at the Metrocentre

White duvet set - Dunelm Mill £19.99

Rabbit Lamp - £49.99 from Bothy Blue

Ceiling Shade - Lipsy at Next £40.00

Carpet-100% Wool berber, Carpetright - £12.99 per sq m

This project would be the equivalent of our interior design package: detailed consultation, mood board presentation, full shopping list (tailored to the clients overall budget), including furniture and accessories and final style and stage. This package would cost £300.
