Interior Design

Our team of expert interior designers work with quiet colours and authentic, natural materials to create calm, understated and harmonious spaces. The furniture we use is a skillful blend of specially made pieces, carefully sourced antiques and contemporary design. Each interior is elevated by art and collectables meticulously sourced from the UK and abroad. The result is homes that are timeless and beautiful yet welcoming and comfortable.

Interior Architecture

When a house requires a major overhaul Sims Hilditch draws on the talents of our interior architects, who consider the functionality of each room, but also look at the house as a whole - how the spaces flow and whether they might be reconfigured to work better for our client’s lifestyle. We also make design decisions regarding the building’s fabric, from staircases and internal doors, to cornices and built-in joinery so that every detail of the building looks absolutely right.

Project Management

Our project managers pride themselves on accuracy, excellent communication and meticulous attention to detail. Their role is to collaborate with the interior design team so projects run efficiently and to ensure our clients schedules and budgets are respected at all times. They also ensure interiors are delivered and installed within the agreed timescales. This leaves clients free to enjoy their design journey.

How We Work

The majority of our clients utilise the skills of the interior architect team as well as the interior design studio, however, in some circumstances we will undertake interior decoration only projects.

1. Appraisal & Brief

Establishing the Design Direction

Making sure that we understand our client’s individual needs is an important part of the design process. To begin, we will establish the design direction and project context to inform the overall aesthetic. We will then happily review this with our clients before sign-off.

2. Concept

Understanding the Look & Feel

Once we establish the overall design aesthetic, functionality and flow, our team will create a collection of floor plans, image concept boards and sketches for principal rooms in the house.

3. Detailed Design

Developing & Refining the Concept

In order to ensure that each element of the design is in keeping with our clients’ requirements, we will continue to refine the look and feel which lays out the design intent for each element of the home. We encourage collaborative input and provide developed mood boards for our client to fully ‘sign-off’ before we begin the next stage.

4. Technical Design

Communicating the Design for Tender

During this stage, we can review technical drawings to ensure they reflect the schematic plans approved by our client.

5. Tender & Construction

Liaising with the Wider Team

We are committed to delivering beautiful yet homely interiors in line with the agreed concept and technical designs by working collaboratively with the wider team. Once work on site is taking place, we ensure the design is efficiently moving forward by liaising with the contractors and/ or architects.

6. Handover & Close Out

Installing and Dressing the Home

We aim to offer an experience that is second-to-none. During the installation, a full Sims Hilditch team will be on-site to oversee deliveries and add those finishing touches. Finally, we will dress the home and ensure there is a smooth, efficient handover.
