ABOUT ME I set up my interior design consultancy in 2014 after working for over 20 years at various highly acclaimed London architects and interior design practices. These include Tom Dixon, Brinkworth Design, Red Jacket, Universal Design Studio and Studioilse.
With almost 30 years of experience, I design residential interiors and interior architecture projects across West London. My role as an interior designer is extensive, it is my job to be smart thinking and to enhance the interior of a building by considering the best use of space. To create spaces that are safe, functionally fit for purpose, aesthetically pleasing and practical and to always design with the budget in mind.
I explore the scope of works and the clients requirements. Carefully consider the budget and keep this in mind throughout the project.
If an architect has already been appointed, work with the architect. If it’s not necessary for an architect to be involved, work in the place of an architect this is dependent on the size and style of a project.
Design and draw using CAD; plans, elevations, sections, detailed sketches and 3D renders if necessary. Always design with an attention to detail. Detail is key to great design. I can produce cad drawings with as much detail as the client requires.
I have an extensive material samples library which has been collected over the past 10 years and with this will advise on all materials, colours, finishes, furniture (FF&E). I provide mood boards and images to inspire the client and help make the decisions. We can be clever with materials and finishes, kemp potter design has relationships with suppliers and we can pass on trade discounts to clients.
Give guidance on appointing subcontractors, draw & detail kitchen & bedroom joinery items for pricing which might be outside the contractors contract.
Take on the role of project manager, when on site support the clients and work alongside the contractor. Attend site meetings with the client or on behalf of the client, the level of involvement is flexible. A good builder will construct but you will require someone to have the vision and supply the builder with the detailed drawings. Good design is all in the detail.
Specify, schedule and supply furniture & fittings (FF&E) using kemp potter design trade discounts to provide a smooth service and savings for the client. I strive to bring beautiful design to your home and reduce the anxiety of a building project.
