Construction and decoration projects can be stressful. There is much that needs to be planned, organised and specified, a myriad of decisions to be made, budgets and trades to be controlled and co-ordinated. My job (as well as delivering a great interior)is to solve problems and take away that stress by providing a smooth, efficient and enjoyable design journey for my clients. Claire Tull
What does this mean for you and why choose Studio 12 Designs?
"Claire brings her own ideas to the table whilst never trying to impose these upon you. For clients who require more hand-holding, she brings her full design experience and mood boards with samples to the scenario. She brings a patient and gentle approach to the decision making process, whilst keeping the clients budget in mind as well as dealing with the discrepancies of desired look between householders!"
"When it comes to major pieces of work Claire has kept us well informed of progress and always stuck to her original timetable and budget. A further aspect of Claire's work that stands out is her flexibility in managing our tastes and requirements, however challenging. We feel that we can turn to Claire for assistance on any aspect of interior design and be confident of a first-class product delivered in a timely manner."
"The unexpected side effects have both stunned and delighted me. Redefining the rooms and giving each room a clear function not only has changed the look and flow of the house, but also family life!
The children used to rarely play computer games together, but now they play games, watch a film together in the den and use the study for their homework which they also do together. It may take longer but judging by the chatter and laughter it’s a lot more fun.
The transformation is stunning, and the positive impact on our way of living downstairs is amazing."
"Claire is a true inspiration - I want to buy another house just so I can have the pleasure with working with Claire again! A true professional who has an amazing knack of understanding our needs and put it all together effortlessly."
How we work with you
The Concept Design Stage – visualising and articulating your ideas, needs, and desires!
Our homes are a significant investment, and space is a precious resource. At Studio 12 Designs we have a wealth of experience and expertise, to help you make confident, informed choices to select layouts, finishes, and furnishings to create an interior that you’ll adore.
Together with you – our client – we take our joint inspiration from a variety of sources: nature, art, sculpture, colour and design styles, and architectural trends and influences. This delivers an entirely balanced approach to the design, ensuring that scale, proportion, colours, and textures are in harmony with each other, and the project vision.
We will produce 2D and 3D drawings, scheme-boards and samples, to enable you to visualize your project. We’ll then work closely with you to establish realistic budgets and a project plan which ensures minimum disturbance to your home or business.
