Interior Design

From a single room or an entire house Laurent Billiet and his team of interior designers are on-hand to help you create the perfect look for your home with the best from France and Ireland. We also offer a full interior design & furnishing service for larger commercial projects (please visit our commercial section for information and pictures of previous projects)

Looking to design or remodel your home or business? Maybe fit out a rental property without breaking the bank? Don’t have the time or patients to deal with and coordinate trades people? During each interior design project I look to optimise and transform available space, so my client gets maximum benefit from the redesign of their home or commercial property. I firstly arrange a consultation with my client, and meet them at their home/ business, I ascertain their needs, understand their interests and preferences. It is important to establish how my client intends to use the room. From there, I aim to design a space that is functional and unique to their taste. I would then go away with all the information an put some ideas together. I then go back to client within a matter of days and present my ideas, with samples of colour, textiles, tiles, carpet etc.

It is then up to the client whether they want to have me organise the various trades people (builder, painter, electrician, carpet fitters, blind fitters, upholsters etc…) or, just leave them with the ideas. I often find that most of my clients work hard or long hours, and don’t have time to shop for the various items (sofas, tables, beds etc…) so I also provide a personal shopping service- and do it for them!
