Hi, we would be pleased to help you with online interior design Project.
To start we just need a few clear photos of the room.
Here is what we need from you:
· Clear, labelled photos of each wall of the room being designed.
· If we're doing several rooms in your home it might be best to email them in batches keeping one rooms photograph per batch.
· Take photos before 2pm for the best lighting. Leave the lights off (they distort the colour) and open the curtains.
· Try not to use a flash.
· Take photos in landscape, horizontal mode
· Place a plain white piece of paper near any ‘fixed finish’, i.e. Flooring, tile, countertops, furniture etc. that you will not be changing. This allows us to see the undertones easily, it's the secret of our success!
Stand at the center of each main wall and take one photo pointing the camera straight ahead to the opposite wall.
Email them to use using the medium sized photos and you are all set!

Wondering how to sketch a simple floor plan?
Look no further. Although it may seem daunting, it's really quite easy.
Here's a quick review!
If the interior wall has no doors, windows, or partitions, just measure from one side to the other, the total width of the room.
If we have a window in the way - starting from one corner, measure towards the window casing (not the inside window metal frame), jot that figure down, keep going to include the rest of the wall.
Move onto the next wall space, jot it down and keep going.
Tip: to double check, just measure the full wall width (ignoring windows/doors) from one side to the other, and compare that measurement to the total of all of the smaller measurements. I.e. on the sketch below, the wall measures, 1'6" + 4'6" + 8' + 4'6" + 2' = 20'6"'.
Double check that the wall in its entirety is 20'6".
Be sure to include anything that is not a wall - a niche, step back in the wall, etc. Anything you think we need to know. If you are just making a rough sketch, round up to the nearest inch.
Remember to check the height as well - this is useful for determining the length of drapery, art, etc.
Now you are all set to hand this sketch off to your interior designer, or tackle it on your own!
