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 sustainable too.
- Project too big to manage alone yet too small for an architect/project manager? Heliotrope finds creative solutions. From shortlisting materials either 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 aim is a balance between perfection and practicality. Best put as 'Wabi Sabi' which in Japanese culture means embracing imperfection.
- 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.
THE COLOUR LIBRARY
The Colour Library is Heliotrope's source library housed in a shed. Having a carefully curated samples library makes the design process much simpler and quicker by giving clients confidence that they've seen all a good cross section of all the options out there, past and present. A small selection of our products are online (see menu) so far, and added to weekly.
