When you’re faced with an empty space or looking at a completely blank canvas it can be challenging to imagine the space as you want to see it, along with any design features that make the space functional to your requirements. Here at Elizabeth May Design, we work with you to build and develop a central design theme or concept design, from the ground up or based on any of your initial ideas. The concept comes to life with detailed planning and is a visual idea using colour, style and design layers.
In order to understand more about who you are, the space and your ideas around design style we are able to send you a detailed questionnaire or meet with you to discuss. We are able to talk you through any latest concept ideas or trends and apply these where applicable, guiding you every step of the way. The more information we have, the better we can plan and design the overall concept to deliver a style and mood tone that aligns with what you have always imagined.
Once we have a more complete understanding of likes and dislikes, and with pointers towards the design styles that you resonate with, we begin the design process by creating the relevant concept mood boards for each space and for the overall design style. Once complete we will present these to you and fine-tune the overall concept design to a finished working model.
With the concept design complete, we are then able to help you bring the concept to life moving into the different phases of the particular design project. Whether this is sourcing furniture, custom joinery, sourcing furnishings and other design elements, and in general liaising with you and trades to build out and implement the concept design. We’ve designed concepts for a large range of residential and commercial projects and bring decades of experience to the table.
"Liz was amazing from start to finish. I find home decorating quite overwhelming, but she presented me with enough ideas to get my creative juices flowing. She stuck to the brief but added her own personal flair to them which really brought the house to life, and worked seamlessly with my builder which was such a relief!"
"Elizabeth worked with me to fit out our hair and beauty salon in Byron Bay. She nailed our relaxed beach vibe with natural materials, clean lines and amazing prints. Elizabeth was involved in every aspect of design, from sourcing items, coming up with innovative solutions to various challenges, designing custom pieces and selecting soft furnishings. From the initial consultation through to completion, her advice was invaluable. We love the end result!"
