A complete design service for residential and commercial clients, which includes everything from conceptual design to the finishing touches. Our tailored service process is as follows:
We visit you to listen to and understand your ideas, and to establish a brief. This is followed by another meeting where the fee proposal, budget, timelines and scope of work are discussed and agreed.
CONCEPTUAL DESIGN DEVELOPMENT
Championing a collaborative approach, we start the creative process by acknowledging your needs; exploring and researching creative solutions, design concepts and colour schemes for your approval. These form a basis for the final design.
With the interior design confirmed, we create a set of detailed technical drawings for spatial layout, joinery and lighting, along with decorative specifications and a timeline for project management which acts as guidelines for the contractors to carry out works accordingly.
Once a principal contractor is appointed the designs are transferred to them. We maintain a close eye on the project management and work alongside your architect and contractors to ensure that the design is executed as intended.
INSTALLATION AND STYLING
For a seamless finished look, we provide a full specification of furniture and accessories. Studio Alpa will process ordering, organise and schedule deliveries, before styling and dressing your home with furniture and accessories, ready for you to move in and enjoy your new home.
We provide a room-by-room service that is ideal for clients wishing to refresh their homes without the disruption of a full renovation. Reupholstering an old chair, changing wall colours, light fittings or curtains are some of the many ways of uplifting the energy and refreshing your space.
We love to introduce new ideas into existing spaces, return tired looking furniture to its former glory or combine your existing objects with new ones to create an updated, coordinated space that satisfies your lifestyle, while fulfilling your interior design dreams.
KITCHENS AND BATHROOMS
We understand that kitchens and bathrooms are a large financial investment and therefore take your budget into consideration when bringing your ideas to life. We provide a tailored service and work with kitchen and bathroom retailers or independent specialist joiners to meet your requirements. Each kitchen or bathroom project is treated with a collaborative and enthusiastic approach and we look forward to guiding and presenting ideas through our wealth of knowledge and experience.
Kitchens are considered the heart of the home, but they are increasingly becoming part of our living area too. Studio Alpa passionately design kitchens by working with you to establish how you use your space most, be that to cook, work, entertain or all of the above. Whether your kitchen is within an open living arrangement, or hidden away so as not to impose on your elegant living area, we will help design you a kitchen that is functional, aesthetically pleasing and supportive of your lifestyle.
Bathroom design has evolved over the last decade and is now not solely driven for practical needs. A good bathroom is considered to be a place in the home for relaxation, pampering and self-care. With this in mind, regardless of size, we design bathrooms with a timeless feel using quality products to ensure design and functionality are equally balanced to enhance emotional well-being.
SOURCING AND STYLING
Our sourcing and interior styling service is ideal for finding those missing pieces of furniture, lighting, accessories, artwork or fabrics for upholstery and window treatments.
You may have recently finished renovation works in your home but are unsure of how to complete the look, or you may just prefer to leave this stage for someone else. That’s why we’re here to help. We can help to source items for you based on your preferences, make suggestions where required, before dressing and styling the space to create your perfect interior aesthetic.
Design consultations are where we offer guidance and support to enable your project to commence and progress in the right direction. We can advise in regard to colour schemes, lighting design, furniture layout ideas or more. Get in touch with questions you may have in relation to your project.
The psychology of colour influences many emotional perceptions and can improve your emotional wellbeing too. For example, red is often associated with passion or excitement whereas neutral whites have a more calming effect. Choosing the right colour scheme is vital and we’ll work with you to reflect your personality and take into consideration the effects of artificial and natural light. The result? A scheme that will enhance, stimulate your senses and reflect your aspirations and individuality.
Lighting design is an important part of an interior and can make a huge difference to any home or garden. A well-considered lighting scheme will enhance and balance the atmosphere between practicality, ambience, light and shadow. We collaborate with specialist lighting designers, home-technology specialists, architects and builders to create the best lighting solutions for your project. We also specialise in decorative lighting solutions and will source the perfect pendants, chandeliers, wall, floor or table lamps to suit your budget and desires.
BESPOKE FURNITURE AND JOINERY
This service is ideal for those awkward spaces that require a unique solution. Whether you require a particular bespoke piece of furniture or storage solution, we will design, suggest colours and finishes while collaborating with joiners and cabinet makers to create the best solutions that suit your budget.
We don’t shy away from a challenge so you can be sure that any problem will be met with a creative solution that will satisfy your requirements.
