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 your 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.

Procurement Management

Our procurement 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 your schedule and budget is respected at all times. They also ensure interiors are delivered and installed within the agreed timescales. This leaves you free to enjoy the design journey for your home.

How We Work

Our design process aligns with the RIBA Plan of Work to ensure consistency across disciplines.

The majority of projects 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

We begin with a visit to your home to gain a first-hand impression, assess your requirements and take a brief. Next, we develop ideas collaboratively with you and any other professionals involved. Finally, we present an overview of the project and reflect back your preferred design signature.

2. Concept

Understanding the Look & Feel

We will establish the overarching interior design direction for the entire property, through hand-drawn layouts, fabric mood boards and inspirational images. The concept will consider space planning, interior architecture, fixed finishes and outline furniture.

3. Design Intent

Developing & Refining the Concept

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

4. Technical Design

Communicating the Design for Tender

We happily work alongside your chosen architect to produce draft technical drawings for key rooms such as kitchens and bathrooms, as well as joinery. We will monitor and review the architects drawings to ensure they reflect all elements agreed by you. Where an architect is not involved, we can provide drawings to communicate the detailed design of interior architectural elements to your chosen contractor.

5. Liaison during 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. Procurement, delivery & installation

Installing and Dressing the Home

Once the final selection of items has been signed off, a specialist within our team will commence with procurement. We manage the installation, from organising and overseeing the delivery of items from our storage facility to positioning furniture, hanging artwork and dressing the property. Our design team will personally ensure that finishing touches are in place before leaving you to enjoy your new home.
