Consultation - in person Brighton & Hove area - up to 2 hours

Welcome!

This consultation can be used in two ways:

1. As an initial consultation to look at a large project and your site together, to see if we are a good fit and to start the ball rolling on your project and your brief.

2. Or it can be used as a one-off meeting to look at isolated things you are struggling with and need some expert help with.

I can help in the following ways….

  1.  Are you struggling to solve a problem area of your space?
  2.  Do you need help space planning and working out the best layout?
  3.  Are you stuck for inspiration?
  4.  Do you need help sourcing items?
  5.  Would you like help on a shopping trip?
  6.  Would you like help finding tradespeople?
  7.  Are you struggling to finding an item that I can help you get made?
  8.  Do you need help finding craftspeople who can renovate an item you have?
  9.  Would you like help with a colour scheme?
  10.  You might want a second opinion on some work you are about to begin or an order you are about to place.
  11.  I specialise in cruelty free (vegan), healthy and sustainable interior design so I can provide specifications to suit if required.

The following guides are provided:

See DELIVERABLES once purchased.

  • 'A Client’s Guide To Working With An Interior Designer' from The British Institute for Interior Design

  • 'Working with Chloe' guide

How does the appointment work?

For a one-off consultation - you take the notes and put them into action yourself from there. Often this is enough to help steer clients and set them up to do a project themselves. Interior design help doesn't need to be expensive. An investment in some guidance early on can help to save you making expensive mistakes.

FOLLOW UP: If you require me to provide notes afterwards or require further input (such as research, sourcing, drawing etc. returned by email) or an additional consultation, this will involve an extra fee. See CONSULTATION FOLLOW UP or book a second TWO HOUR CONSULTATION or buy a 10 HOUR BUNDLE if you want lots more help.

The appointment is up to 2 hours.

This appointment happens in person, in the Brighton & Hove area. Outside of the area is available upon request and travel costs & time will be charged.

48 hours notice is required for cancellations.

Consultation to be paid for one week prior to appointment.

Consultation client testimonials:

Two hour consultation client. Rustington:

I needed urgent advice on the aesthetics of a home extension and reached out to Chloe from Materialise Interiors. Chloe arranged an online consultation later that day and had prepared for the conversation by looking at plans I sent in advance. She was patient and supportive and clearly understood my dilemma with how to best light a high sloping ceiling amongst other key design elements. Chloe provided creative solutions that I had not considered and sent me pictures of examples. My own personal project page was established and sent to me too. I was so impressed by the care and attention given along with the creative design solutions suggested. In a short video call I had my challenges solved and felt relieved and positive. Chloe’s manner is so reassuring yet professional and her creativity and understanding of my individual needs were perfect!

Thanks for your time last week, you’ve given me some fantastic ideas! I will certainly recommend you if I can or if I know anyone that might be interested in your services.

Residential client. Worthing:

Chloe’s advice was invaluable during our kitchen extension. She helped us to realise the potential of the space available in a kind, sensitive and friendly manner. She was also considerate of the age of the building and the style required. She helped us with sourcing materials and cementing the design scheme. Thank you Chloe.

QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE:

Will you provide solutions during the consultation?

You can appreciate there are lots of variables here. Interior design covers very many areas and specifications! I will do my best. I will bring my product library and ipad with me - but some things might have to follow on afterwards. I won't be able to answer everything on the spot. The better you prepare me for areas you need help - the more prepared I will be. Depending on the amount you need to work through - sometimes I leave the consultation early to use the time to work on things you need sourcing. Or I can do further sourcing for you if you purchase a CONSULTATION FOLLOW UP

Will you write up notes for me?

No. You make notes during the consultation. If you tell me before the consultation that you need the notes taking - you can pre-purchase the CONSULTATION FOLLOW UP and I will write notes and send them to you afterwards.

I struggle using computers - can I book and pay over the phone?

Please call me on 07799 534685. I can take PayPal payments or cash if that it easier. The appointment needs to be prepaid a week before the consultation.
