Your Architect or drafts person has drawn up the plans for your renovation or build and you are now left with an enormous amount of decision and questions.  


Sally Josephine Designs full design service covers just about everything you need to have a completed home that is not only beautiful but really also reflects who you are. I will help, guide and support you to create a home that is environmentally resilient, healthy, resourceful, functional and of the highest quality.


By leaving the majority of the design work to a professional, which can take hours out of your precious time, the renovation process can be an enjoyable experience and limit the amount of stress put upon you. The finished product will be a home that you can be proud of and trust me, you will want to show it off.

Every little detail will be taken care off, from lighting to light switches, to the bench top finish, right down to the draw pulls for the kitchen.  These little things when you have the support of a design professional, can relieve so much pressure and worry and you will feel so much lighter for it.

An initial  2 hour consultation is $190.00, where we will discuss your design project and then we can move forward from there.



  • It all starts with you getting in touch

  • I will email you within 24 hours

  • The next step is to complete the design questionnaire. This will give me a better understanding of who you are , your goals and needs.

  • Once the questionnaire is complete, I will be in  contact to organise a time for your 30 minute complementary discovery call. During this call we can book in a time for your design consultation.

  • I will then email through an invoice for the consultation which will need to be paid prior to our meeting

  • If you have already started to put some samples together, have floorplans and notes, that's fantastic.  The more organised you are for the day, the more time we have for the important stuff.

  • During the design consultation we will discuss your design requirements and to also see if we are a good fit.

  •  I will be taking lots of notes, measurements if applicable, photos, going through your floorplans if you have them  and looking at anything you may have gathered so far in regards to samples.

  • After our consultation I will go away and develop a fee proposal and concept boards and send them through to you.

  • This will be based on what we spoke about in our design consultation and your vision for your project.

  • This part of the process takes approximately 48 hours

  • Once you have approved the fee proposal and concept boards and you feel that we are going to work well together, we can then move on to the next phase.


  • This stage is where I prepare the preliminary concepts  for the design project.

  • I will prepare a scope of work outlining what you need done as well as a schedule of when you need it completed.

  • I will present suggestions for products, fixtures and fittings and will present physical samples where available and utilise moodboards.

  • Sketches, floorplans and furniture layout ideas will also be available during this phase.

  • There will be a great deal of research in the concept phase as this is where I will be really trying to hone in on the final design concept.

  • During this phase I will be giving you email and phone support, as well as site visits when required.


  • This phase of the design project is where everything will be finalised so that the construction phase can commence successfully.

  • We will have  a meeting to present the design project  to you.

  • I will then go away and revise any changes and come back to you with the new design

  • Once you have approved the revised design, we can then have a meeting with all of your trades, on site, to run through the project and to make sure your project comes under budget.

  • The completion of all interior selections (fixtures, fittings, finishes) will be finalised.

  • I will prepare a fixtures, fittings and finishes schedule so all your trades know what goes where.

  • I will be ordering samples for you so you can start to get a feel of what your project will look like at the end


  • This phase of the design project is where it starts to get exciting and where you will finally start to see your renovation or build start to come to life.

  • I will support you through the whole process and communicate with all your trades so that everyone is on the same page.

  • I will be ordering PC items such as fixtures, fittings, finishes, flooring, lighting and some of the furniture (if long lead time), on your behalf, where applicable.

  • This will  include access to my trade discounts where available.

  • You will have email and phone support as well as regular site visits available to you  during this busy construction phase.


  • You are getting so close to the end of your design project now.

  • During and near the end of the construction phase,  I will source and select all the furniture, soft furnishings and accessories.

  • I will develop a design concept for furniture, soft furnishings, art and accessories for the entire home, utilising your existing pieces  and what design work has been completed in earlier phases to make sure you have a cohesive design.

  • We will have another meeting to discuss and present the design and costs.

  • I will then go away and revise any changes and come back to you with the new design if needed.

  • I will visit suppliers and place orders for furniture and accessories on your behalf .

  • Closer to reveal day furniture and accessories will start to arrive.

  • Once the renovation or build is complete we can organise a time for 'install day'.

  • I will arrive to style and decorate your home with the items we have purchased and your existing pieces.

  • You can now enjoy the rewards of your new home!
