Our Services

David James Interiors Oakham provides a range of interior design services that can be tailored to suit your needs.

We have described the outline processes for those services, however, every interior design project is different and unique, and therefore the processes described will vary based on the requirements of your project.

From your first meeting with us we can work with you to identify what interior design services will suit your needs and your budget.

We will work with you to get the best from your interior project by analysing your requirements and producing functional and creative solutions to meet your needs. We will advise on the budget requirements to meet your design aspirations, co-ordinate the work and monitor progress if you wish.

We will guide you through each of the design stages, either working with you from the initial consultation through to completion or, if you prefer, up to the point where you wish to continue by yourself with your new found knowledge.

The outcome of your project is as important to us as it is to you and therefore our recommendations will help you decide whether your plans and budget are realistic, preventing expensive mistakes.

You will benefit from our experience and creativity by working closely with us to bring your interior dreams to reality whilst enhancing your well-being and getting the best possible experience from your space.

Arrange a free initial consultation at our studio based in Oakham, Rutland, to discuss your project. You can do this by calling into the studio, sending an enquiry via the website www.davidjames-interiors.com or by calling the studio on 01572 869058. From there we can discuss the level of service you require.

We work with you to assess and evaluate your interior design project by proving a professional project management service that will help you bring your project in on time, to budget and to the desired quality. We will work alongside other construction trades and specialists ensuring your project runs efficiently and effectively.

How it works:

Initial Consultation Stage
Arrange a free initial consultation at our studio based in Oakham, Rutland, to discuss your intended interior design project.   You can do this by calling into the studio, sending an enquiry via the website www.davidjames-interiors.com or by calling the studio on 01572 869058. From there we can discuss the level of service you require.

Preliminary Stage
We arrange a suitable time to visit your property to conduct a brief site survey.  On conclusion of the survey we analyse our findings and provide an outline report with recommendations, leaving you to decide what services best suit your needs.

Preparation and Design Stage
We initiate your Project Pack and talk you through the project management process.  You can decide the level of project management you want from us. As we progress further we will provide floor plans, elevations and models of your spaces and provide conceptual design schemes for your consideration.  As we progress to the detailed design development stage we will begin to source your selected items and continue to project manage to an exceptionally high standard.

Organising and Purchasing Stage
We will work with agreed professionals in the construction and design industry to get any work underway, saving you time and inconvenience.  We will begin the procurement of any furniture, wallcoverings, soft furnishings, art work and accessories. We will keep you updated every step of the way, dealing with any defective items or issues, should this occur, on your behalf.

Installation and Completion Stage
Our in-house team will carry out the installation and interior styling as agreed at the detailed design stage.  We will organise cleaning and photography in readiness for your final inspection.

We provide expertise and guidance to help you prepare your property for sale in the market place, so that your property will appeal to the highest number of potential buyers which will help you to secure a quicker sale.

Every successful interior design project starts with a good design concept.

Concept generation allows for your interior designer to put your brief into a visual representation such as a mood board.  This helps you to visualise your space before it has been physically done.

A typical board will contain a collection of furniture, colours, materials, textures, accents, accessories and lighting ideas.  It will define elements that will make up your interior scheme.

This part of the design process helps generate ideas, planning, circulation, materials and textures, colour and lighting – this will drive the concept of your interior design scheme.

Colour impacts on our moods, thoughts and feelings.  It can affect our health and well-being.  If you are looking for advice and guidance on the perfect colour scheme for your home, without the need for a full interior re-design, we can help.

Lots of things are taken into account when deciding on the right colour scheme for you and your space, and we work closely with you to ensure you make the right choices.  We take into account internal factors such as architecture and light as well as the natural environment and its relationship to your room or rooms, a major factor when deciding what colours will or won’t work in your home.  

Space planning is simply (easier said than done!) dividing the space up effectively and creatively whilst maintaining functionality.  We will help you maximise the light, flow, acoustics and public/private spatial balance in your home.  Punctuating a space with ‘signposts’ such as seating, sculpture or furniture can help, as can using lighting and/or floorcovering to define ‘pathways’ through the space.

Not all space planning projects require an architect unless there are substantial changes of scale.  If an architect is required we will work in close conjunction with them to develop and deliver your perfect scheme.
