What I do...
Mariama Janneh Interior Design is an easy and convenient process. I provide a unique service for those who want a helping hand or an idea of how their interior could look without the cost or inconvenience of a project managed interior design service. No matter what your budget, I can help.
I work with every client differently. If you want to be involved in the design process from the beginning that's fine. If you want to leave the whole thing to me that's also fine! I don't charge any consultation fees and you can call and email as much as you like!
Measuring correctly and filling in the client profile...
Use the metric system...
The USA are the only country that still use the imperial measurement system so please use CM or MM when noting down your numbers!
Measure all walls...
Remember that you will lose a few CMs from your skirting boards so please ensure you measure on the floor so that your measurements are accurate. The same applies to any cladding or dado rails.
Measure the windows and doors...
Include the height and width and remember to measure the distance from wall to window/door and height from floor to cill and top of window to ceiling.
Lighting and electrics...
Unless you are completely remodelling then please note on the plan where your sockets and switches are. Please include any wall lights.
Please remember this part. Most clients forget but it is important.
Other fixtures and fittings...
Any permanent features such as book cases, fireplaces or radiators need to be noted down and dimensioned. It is easy to forget but will enable me to draw the room correctly.
It is important to take photos of the room in question. These will help me to understand the finer details of the room such as skirting board type, window style and door type.
If you are keeping any furniture then please take photos and upload them on the form.
Any other pictures you think may be relevant such as an image from a magazine or a favourite possession that inspires you should be included on the form.
All major cards and Paypal are accepted. You are not required to have a Paypal account.
I use Paypal express which means you receive buyer protection and ease of payment without needing to have an account.
You'll be directed to Paypal's secure checkout so everything can be done in one sitting. So it really is a super convenient process!
Aspect of the room...
This question refers to the direction the room/
Interiors are greatly effected by light and shadow and they both cause issues and a lot of headache for people have when deciding on a suitable colour scheme for their home.
Having this vital information will help me decide on the right colour group for your interior so please include it.
Have more than one room that needs a makeover?
No problem! The vast majority of my clients contact me needing multiple rooms designing.
Simply get in touch and let me know how many rooms you have, (if you have a floor plan even better) and let me know what you need for each space. I will then work out a price based on your requirements.
If you are happy with the cost I will then add a custom payment to the BUY NOW form. Although the form is generally catered to one room, you can still fill it out with general answers concerning all rooms.
The next step...
So you've bought a package. What happens now ?
STEP 1: We usually begin with the layout of the room. Sometimes this is an extremely quick process, sometimes it might take a day or two.
You will receive up to six layouts of your space and together we will decide which one works the best for you.
Client plans are simplified and easy to understand.
A key for lighting and other fittings are noted on the plan. Plans are also scaled with measurements.
For larger residential, commercial or construction projects, fully annotated technical drawings are provided.
STEP 2: Sample boards or mood boards are visual aids that will enable you to see how the scheme will look. They include everything from furniture to accessories.
If you don't like it, I change it until you are happy, however please note that I don't suggest anything without a good reason and I can only do what I know will work so it pays to keep an open mind!
All sample/mood boards come with real samples of paint, wallpapers and fabrics.
Although we will go through everything together as we go along, your sample boards come with information, tips and tricks to help you make the best of your new interior.
STEP 3: The fun part! Once you are happy with the previous steps we move onto to 3d visuals and/or 360° video depending on which package you've picked, which will show you how your new interior will look.
Visuals are taken from each corner of the room and will include ceiling and floor.
All products are produced using CAD (computer aided design). This ensures accuracy in design and will give you a real idea of how your space will look. The location is set to wherever you live to ensure correct lighting and colour representation.
Should you wish to see your room with lights on you can do so.
Premium 360° is a brand new package enabling you see every detail of your new interior.
This is especially useful for kitchen and bathroom design where the technical details really matter.
You can control how fast or slow you view the video so you don't miss a thing!
Give it a go!
Place your mouse
on the video and
How does this package work?
It works in the same way as the other packages.
We follow the same steps as above.
Once you are happy with the visuals of the room, a 360 video will be made.
Due to the complexity of 360°, any changes to the 360° will incur a small fee, so make sure you are happy with the visuals before we get to this step!
Once you are completely satisfied with you interior, you will receive a high resolution pdf package with shopping list via email so you can begin buying right away. In the meantime I will prepare your lovely package which will be sent in the post with everything you need to create your beautiful, new interior!
What you will receive...
My design packages come beautifully presented in a design folder. Inside each page is mounted on hard board, bound together with ribbon and a glossy sticker. You will also receive some design postcards which you can give out to your friends and family.
Your shopping list will be sent via email as an interactive list. Simply click each link and buy!
You are welcome to contact me after we have completed your designs. I am here to help if you have any problems during the decorating process.
If you have a rental property I can help you design it with as little or as much as input as you need.
Whether you are in the process of developing from scratch or renovating an existing property, I can help you create an interior to appeal to all.
I can plan your kitchen and bathroom, help you pick a suitable colour scheme and get your property ready for the rental market.
All my rental market projects had varying levels of design. Therefore the set interior design packages may not be suitable for your needs. Please contact me and I can work out a price based on your requirements.
That's a lot of information! Just a couple of points left...
If you have more than one room then there will be a discount. Simply contact me and tell me how many rooms you have and a price will be worked out for you.
Can't find what you're looking for ?
If you don't need a complete package or cannot find what you are looking for please contact me and tell me what you require and I will do my best to help and work out a price based on what you need.
Customer service is very important to me. If you are not entirely satisfied with your design I will make any necessary alterations at no further cost to you. I will work very closely with you throughout and I will also send your design via email first and ask you if you are happy before sending the final package.
If you would like a home visit this can be arranged. Please get in contact if you wish arrange one. As stated before consultations are free but a travel fee will apply and this fee will depend where you are in the country.
