At Katriona Alice, we pride ourselves on providing a flexible service. Each project is different so we always like to start with a meet-and-greet to listen to your specific requirements and vision. After this we will create a clear project objective and get going on our design concept.
Our concept phase will start with precedent images and sketched layouts. We like to create a presentation with a variety of looks and feels to discuss what you like, and what you don't. This helps guide the design and allows you to make informed decisions early on.
After a concept has been finalised we move onto the detail phase. This will start with technical drawings of the architecture and/or any built in furniture items (it's important to get these done a.s.a.p. for tender). Then following agreement on the details, we will work with you to appoint specialist contractors for every detail of the design.
Finally we have purchasing and installation, this can be a massive job with hundreds of items required for every project. We work our way through your design and make sure every choice is accounted for; fabrics, furnishings, lighting, curtains, the list is endless.
Throughout our process we like to be transparent and keep an open line of communication at all times, meaning we are always just a text or picture away from any troubleshooting you may have. All our files are kept on shared online platforms for the client to review at any time and questions are always welcome.
Services & Tariffs
We believe in creating beautiful spaces that work for each individual clients’ needs, which means in most cases there is no one-size-fits-all solution. However to help you decide on the kind of service you need please take a look at some of the standard services we offer.
How, why, who and what should I do with my home?
Each project is different so we always like to start with a meet-and-greet to listen to your specific requirements and vision. If possible it is great to get any photographs, plans or precedent ideas you might already have so we can make the meeting as productive as possible. During the meeting we will run through the scope of works, the styles you had in mind and the timeline for the project. After this we can create a clear project objective and draw up a suitable project proposal for you.
Your first appointment will be €100, including travel, but this will be deducted from your final bill should you choose to proceed with our service. Meet-and-greets are available via Skype or one-to-one.
