The role of an Interior Designer

Ever wondered how the role of an Interior Designer is defined?…

From taking the client’s brief and developing designs to overseeing a project right through to the installation of furniture, artworks and accessories, the role of the interior designer is multifaceted.  Let’s look at the role in more detail…

A professional Interior Designer is qualified by education, experience, and examination to enhance the function and quality of interior spaces.  For the purpose of improving the quality of life, increasing productivity, and protecting the health, safety, and welfare of the public, the professional Interior Designer combines efficiency, flexibility, creativity and good business skills with an ability to complete projects on time and in budget and will generally perform the following:

- integrate findings with knowledge of interior design
– formulate preliminary design concepts that are appropriate, functional and aesthetic
– develop and present final design recommendations through appropriate presentation media
– prepare working drawings and specifications for non-load-bearing interior construction, materials, finishes, space planning, furnishings, fixtures and equipment
– collaborate with professional  services of other licensed practitioners in technical areas of mechanical, electrical, and load-bearing design as required for regulatory approval
– prepare and administer bids and contract documents as the client’s agent
– review and evaluate design solutions during implementation and upon completion.

If you are considering engaging the services of an Interior Designer for your project, what is certain is they will save you time, stress and costly mistakes.  For help with your project contact Murray Hurst Interiors: 0113 243 6767  Email. info@murrayhurstinteriors.com

Trim it up…

Never underestimate the effectiveness of interior trimmings in pulling together a scheme, adding the all important finishing touches.  Trimmings in the form of borders, braids, rope and cord can be added to scatter cushions, curtains, blinds and furniture to highlight accent colours, introduce new texture and add interest to plain fabrics and finishes.  See this selection of just a handful of trimmings and tiebacks available to purchase from Murray Hurst Interiors.

A contemporary collection, emphazing pure design elements such as metal and modern colours for Alium tieback, dyed wood for Amazone tieback, carved wood for Eolia, and silver plate incorporating natural look pastel wiremesh strands for Lucia. Three leather tiebacks and three others combining wood and metal create effects to achieve a contemporary look and feel, associated with braids, fringes and piping cord.

A selection of contemporary designs available in four natural linen colours: white, natural, brown and black. Cord and braided tieback blend originality and natural look. Other tassel tiebacks focus on material purity and woven leather effects. Waxed cotton details bring to this collection a distinctly modern feel.

A trimmings collection at once feminine and sophisticated, designed as an inventive line of fashion accessories. Each model is composed of a set of satiny beads and rings, put together like necklaces, pendants or wide belts, making original and spectacular tiebacks. It exists in 15 trendy colours: from orange to ochre, from anise to chocolate, from violet to black, from pink to burgundy… the tones creating a bicoloured harmony with a truly striking effect.

This collection of contemporary and stylised trimmings collection adorned with transparent, black and amber glass beads. The “Art Deco” style used in tie-backs and trimmings, gives to this collection a true identity and sense of style, with a subtle two-tone slant, presented in a range of 12 soft colours.

This is a new complete collection of matt trimmings in Trevira CS, sober and contemporary, available in a range of 12 colours.

Les ombrés, one of the two ranges of the trimmings collection OUTDOOR-INDOOR, are made of viscose yarns that can be washed with soft soap at temperatures up to 60°C.
In addition, the braids of this range also benefit a repellent treatment, that offers a better resistance to dirt and water.

 

Design Tip – Playful Prints

Don’t be fooled in thinking painting a small room a light colour is the answer to making it feel bigger. Opt for colour and print to distract from its dimensions and create a theme. In particular a Cloakroom/ WC  is an ideal room to be creative and playful. So push yourself out of your comfort zone and have some fun with colour and print.  See our selection of favourite designs…

Colour Watch – Teal

This week’s Colour Watch – Teal… At Murray Hurst Interiors, we like to add a touch of colour to a space to set a mood – we like to call it the ‘Jam’ in a scheme. The mellow tone of teal works beautifully with its complimentary colour, coral, or with a simple neutral setting. Interestingly, as well as bringing  a retro feel of the 60’s, like our previous colour watch, Aubergine, it too has a rich and regal feel. Teal is versatile in any room in the home, we find it works particularly well in the living room and bedroom.

Colour Watch – Aubergine

This weeks colour watch… Aubergine.

One of our favourite colours to work with currently at Murray Hurst interiors is the complex and brooding colour – Aubergine.You may think it seems like a deep, rich choice, but when mixed with complementary colours such as yellow tones, particularly the warm tones of ochre and also sharp lime green, it can create a beautifully striking scheme. Aubergine, like its lighter cousin purple, can introduce a regal element to a room and when teamed with metal finishes such as copper, chrome and gold it oozes sophistication and luxury. This colour has signified wealth, power and opulence since at least the time of the Roman Republic, so lets keep the power of aubergine evolving in our designs and indulge ourselves in aubergines rich tones!
