Pipkorn Kilpatrick’s level of services and involvement are flexible to suit your individual needs.
Our design looks at how form, colour and light work together to create warm, inviting spaces that are functional and interconnected, that retain their character yet allow for change over time. If you are thinking of engaging us, then we'd suggest meeting with us to get a sense of our approach, to see if you are both comfortable and excited about what we can create. We are collaborative and work with builders/trades that respect the importance of a collaborative relationship between all trades, client and designer. This not only makes the process enjoyable and rewarding, but it is likely to reduce expenses through avoiding indecision and uncertainties. Pipkorn Kilpatrick's main focus is always to achieve the best quality result, translating your brief into a reality.
why use an interior designer
The people who choose to engage us do so because they want as much planning, thought and care to go into the interior architecture and design of the project, as goes into the architectural shell; they want the spaces to reflect and enhance their everyday living; they want considered design that not only looks good but which prioritises function. And if the anticipating and planning takes place in an integrated way from the start, then good design doesn't necessarily have to cost more.
