What Can We Do To Your Auckland Home?

A Day in the Life Of Kristina Cope - Auckland Home Interior Designer

What I Am Responsible For...
As an interior designer I am responsible for the interior design, decoration, and functionality of a client’s space, whether the space is commercial, industrial, or residential - anywhere throughout the greater Auckland region.

As An Auckland Interior Designer I Work Alongside...
As a professional Interior designer, I work closely with architects and clients to determine the structure of a space, the needs of the occupants, and the style that best suits both. The position is a combination of engineer and artist, and it takes a unique type of mind to handle both of those concepts well... I find already having the discipline of being a qualified and registered architect definitely gives me a distinct advantage!

More To It Than Just Having A Good Eye For Colours...
Interior designers have to be good with more than colour, fabric, and furniture; interior designers must know materials, have budgeting skills, communicate well, and oversee the ordering, installation, and maintenance of all objects that define a space.

They also have to know about electrical capacity, safety, and construction. This broader range of required knowledge distinguishes them from interior decorators.

Interior designers have to be able to work with contractors and clients alike, planning and implementing all aesthetic and functional decisions, from tap handles to km's of carpeting —and all this usually must be done within a fixed budget.

Your Style And Vision Is EXTREMELY Important To Me...
Interior designers are hired for their expertise in a variety of styles and approaches, not merely their own personal vision. Therefore, I have to be able to balance my own tastes and you my clients’ tastes - and be willing to put YOUR tastes first. This requirement could be potentially frustrating for you if I wasn't already trained to be aware of this when I was studying to be an architect... - this is potentially a deadly mistake an unprofessional interior designer makes...

I Also Have To Be Practical...
Interior designers are often asked to begin their planning before construction of a space is finished; this means that they must be good at scheduling and comfortable reading building plans. This element of the job comes as a surprise to many new interior designers, who expect to have less of an administrative and technical role and more of a role in influencing the overall feel and appearance of a space.

Over the last 7 years I have designed and personally built (with my husband an electrician / builder by trade) our 510+m2 dream house here in Meadowbank, Auckland. This has given me 3 very valuable skills - the ability accurately visualise different spaces before actual construction, and then be able to draw a set of working plans, but then work with tradespeople to turn the vision in to reality... (of course as an architect I have designed many spaces for my clients over the years - but there one thing to design for others - and never personally live in the space - and design AND live in the space to know the theory is practical!)...

Need Balance Between Practical And Aesthetics...
Those who thrive in the industry say this ability to balance the practical with the aesthetic is crucial to being a successful interior designer.

Interior design is hard work, but is extremely satisfying for both the client and me Kristina the Interior Designer...
