How we Work

Our Approach

At Cream & Black, we view Interior Design as a personal journey; we work closely with our clients to create unique spaces infused with personality. We believe great design comes from collaboration, working together with other professionals who are as passionate about their trade as we are about ours. For us, excellent communication and efficiency is key in executing successful projects. We take the stress out of the construction process so that our clients can fully appreciate the transformation of their space.

Your project is your story. Tell it with style.

Design Brief

The design process begins by listening to the story you want to tell about your space; we will get to know you and understand your goals for your project, before translating your vision into a clear project plan.

Whether you would like to be fully involved or take a step back, we’ll establish the scope of your project, taking into account your budget and timescale.

Concept Design

Firstly, we will conduct a comprehensive site survey in order to draw detailed plans. We will then present our design ideas to you so that you can start to see our intentions, visualising how your space will look.

We will help you to understand your design aesthetic by using a variety of tools from hand-drawn sketches to 3D renders, your finished project will be clearly communicated to you giving you a sense of the scale, proportion and style of your design. Design is a tactile experience, which is why we’ll also create mood and samples boards offering inspiration on fabrics, finishes and materials.

Design Development

We will develop the agreed design concepts providing a detailed drawing package which may include lighting and electrical plans, drawings of bespoke joinery and visuals of your interior spaces.

We will work with you to confirm all finishes including: floor finishes, cabinetry, window treatments, fittings, fixtures and lighting, producing a specification with project costs. We will work with craftsmen to make bespoke, made to order furnishings if required, ensuring that we keep on track with the overall design objective, and of course your budget.

Project Management

We can manage every stage of your project, collaborating with contractors on site and behind the scenes to ensure a seamless experience from beginning to completion.

From sourcing custom-made furnishings to creating one of a kind architectural features, we work only with the best craftsmen, suppliers and local tradesmen to achieve true individuality for your home.
