Of­fer­ing the full ser­vice

When be­gin­ning a new project, the first thing Paula Gundry and her team of ex­pert de­sign­ers do is get to know their client

EDP Norfolk - - PROMOTION -

“When we meet a new client, we don’t go armed with sam­ple books,” says Paula. “In­stead, we ar­rive ready to have a con­ver­sa­tion. We want to learn about our clients and how they live in their space – start­ing with whether it’s their long-term home or some­where they only plan to be in for a few years.”

Paula and her team use this in­for­ma­tion to come up with ideas and cre­ate so­lu­tions whilst of­fer­ing in­spi­ra­tion – many of which the client may not have thought of be­fore.

“We look at the ex­ist­ing space and think about the func­tion of it. Ul­ti­mately our aim is to add value and com­fort to a home whilst lis­ten­ing care­fully to en­sure our clients achieve ex­actly what they want.”

With over 700 dif­fer­ent sup­pli­ers and a team of in-house con­trac­tors, Paula and her team have the flex­i­bil­ity and ex­per­tise to of­fer a full ser­vice, tak­ing a be­spoke and in­tu­itive de­sign from its ini­tial con­cept through to to­tal com­ple­tion. This in­cludes cre­at­ing a full de­vel­op­ment sched­ule, pro­vid­ing de­tailed cost­ings and car­ry­ing out any elec­tri­cal and plumb­ing work that may be re­quired to com­plete the in­stal­la­tion.

The team use a func­tional yet de­sign-led ap­proach, and are ex­perts in giv­ing clas­si­cal homes a more con­tem­po­rary look. “We’re well known for our luxe style and our trans­for­ma­tion of pe­riod prop­er­ties,” says Paula, “us­ing de­tailed plots, drawn to scale, and care­fully placed lay­ers and tex­tures to achieve the de­sired look.”

But what sets Paula and her team apart, she be­lieves, is their in­di­vid­ual ap­proach. “We en­cour­age our clients to be in­volved with the process – if they want to be,” says Paula. “That’s why we get to know them and their home. Pro­vid­ing them with trans­par­ent costs means that they can show us where they would like to in­vest – par­tic­u­larly in key, state­ment pieces – and we build the rest around that.”

If you would like to work with Paula and her team to trans­form your home and turn your dream space into a re­al­ity, call the Nor­wich of­fice on 01603 628077.
