Journal of An Interior Designer

Dorset Builders
Our first interior design assignment came about after promoting DecCardy Interior Design Dorset in the local Blackmore Vale Magazine in October 2008, offering half-price fees.
I gingerely stepped out of the car at May Cottage in Wiltshire, pads, pens, pencils, tape-measure and camera at the ready.
The Clients were hoping that we could wave a magic wand at their staircase design, change its location and retain all the beam infrastructure.  They hadn't enquired on a whim.  Having lived at the property for some 25 + years, they had not worked out how this would be feasible.
And, with the greatest respect, (we were told) this was why we had been commandeered to help them out!!
The brief was simple in itself - the solution was far more complex.
We set about plotting the existing beam infrastructure on high-tech interior design software and then created new starting points for the staircase.  No way was this going to be possible without removing parts of the beamwork!!
Hence, we went back to the Client, 2D and 3D images in hand, proposing that the layout would have to be much the same as it was with pictures of how an open-plan oak staircase would look.
And the end result was great, conformed to the brief including budget with flooring in 3 rooms together with the landing matching in solid oak.
