Browse through our process and our range of packages, which include designing, sourcing & furnishing, to see how we coordinate the design and interior decisions to achieve your dream home. 

Our Bespoke Process

A Simple, No Obligation, Online Brief

Every project starts with a consultation, where we’ll chat to you about your project, specifically your ideas and the brief.

 

You can get started by creating your design brief on our contact page, or by booking in a Home or Video consultation.

Research &
Layout Optimisation

Following our consultation, our expert team will review your layout & plans, optimising where possible to maximise your space and storage.

Design Concept
Meeting

In this stage, we’ll share with you what we have designed for your project so far, through Mood Boards. If requested, we can also generate CGI’s and Walkthrough to help you truly visualise the spaces. 

Specification

We will then take the concept design, and produce a detailed specification package that will include indicative drawings, coloured elevations, lighting layouts, finishes and materials. Photo-realistic visuals can also be produced if requested.

 

We will also provide detailed technical drawings if we’re also the Architects on the project.

Sourcing & Supplying

To make the process as smooth as possible, following sign off on our specification package we will use our trusted suppliers to purchase all your interior items on your behalf, dealing with any returns, exchanges and ensuring they’re all to your budget and programme. 

 

We can also obtain quotes for the larger items, such as bathrooms or kitchens. 

FF&E

We can design your home down to the smallest detail, incorporating furniture and styling within our specifications and sourcing. With this, will will ensure that your final interior styling matches the look of our initial designs.

 

This service will appeal to clients who want the entire turnkey service, completely designed by AURA.
