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
“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.”
