We approach each project with a unique perspective, listening and giving careful consideration to the context of the brief and working closely with our clients. Beginning with the initial discussions and concept development for the project, it is imperative that we form strong relationships with our clients, allowing them to trust the process and enjoy seeing their project come to life.
The design studio collaborates with some of the nation’s leading furniture and cabinet makers, painters, flooring specialists, architects, landscape architects, builders, artisans and other professionals to deliver exceptional results on a vast array of design projects.
The initial consultation where we meet with you to outline the brief, scope of works and budget. We establish how you like to live, your aesthetic and who will be using the spaces.
Design & Research Phase
During this phase you can expect to see an initial design scheme for the project. Typically presented are initial spatial planning approaches, materials, furniture and lighting concepts. From the feedback from this meeting we begin to design and specify in more detail and a design scheme is produced with detailed drawings of all spaces, I.E. kitchens, bathrooms, all joinery, furniture, soft furnishings and lighting, schedules and estimates.
Once the project specifications and quotes have been approved and signed off, we produce the documentation for tender. We assist you in making your decision when selecting a builder. We liaise with architects, landscape architects, builders, and other trades throughout the construction phase. We have regular site meetings to monitor the progress of the build.
We consolidate all furniture and soft furnishing selections and ensure the orders are placed with suppliers. We coordinate and manage all FF&E orders.
When the building works have been completed it is time to install the furniture and soft furnishings, and see the project come to life. We manage and coordinate the delivery, quality control, and installation of all the procured items, including artwork and objects for styling.
Working with Marylou was very rewarding. We connected with her immediately. She took into account our lifestyle, our use of each space and our vision for each space. It was a delight to travel the streets of Sydney with Marylou. She gave us choices beyond our expectations and it was heartwarming to see the relationships she has built up with all the furniture houses.
My favourite thing about working with Marylou was that she was very patient, provided me with options and encouraged me to make my own decisions. I would encourage anyone thinking about working with Marylou as she is extremely talented.
My favourite thing about working with Marylou was that I completely trusted that I could hand things over and she would come up with the right piece. Additionally she was very up-front about the way she works, costings etc. There were NO surprises.
