LIGHT, SPACE AND COLOUR - inspired by nature
'Heliotrope' has many meanings: a plant that turns its head to face the sun; a purplish colour; a plant with tiny purple flowers.
So it reflects a focus on light, space planning and colour schemes and how nature inspires me rather than trends.
Most clients have something in their schemes that needs to stay or a key item to work around and Heliotrope simply incorporates these into the overall scheme. Skype/Facetime/Zoom consultations available for quick design fixes click here to book.
DESIGN & WELLBEING
Not just wellbeing in design, Heliotrope is focussed on making projects stress free and sustainability-friendly too.
- Project too big to manage alone yet too small for an architect/project manager? Heliotrope finds creative solutions. From shortlisting materials from Chelsea Harbour Design Centre or Heliotrope's Wiltshire samples shed to space planning or lighting advice.
- Keeping it real. Heliotrope listens to what you want; budget, style and lifestyle wise. The final outcome is a balance between perfection and practicality. Design ethos? 'Wabi Sabi' which is about being real and homely.
- Honest, open discussion from the outset about essentials, "nice to haves" and dream additions (plus how to get there). Heliotrope manages expectations, delivers on time and within budget.
- Where there is a choice, Heliotrope chooses the sustainable option - eg. natural materials over synthetic or trying to prevent waste and avoid toxicity. We believe in make do and mend if possible.
