About Spinriver Design

Create your dream home or workspace with me! Serving you online I create floorplans, colour schemes, mood boards and send you samples to deliver your dream design scheme. When you need it I also provide a full specification of all the furniture, finishes, fixtures and fittings as well as artwork and accessories to your budget. Drawings to building regulations with your custom detailing in CAD are also available as a detailed design technical drawing package. Revisions to drawings are quickly revised in AutoCAD by me personally and are never contracted out to ensure high quality and efficiency. This has proved critical to my clients - when you are on site and need urgent revisions so as not to hold up the build! Full specification and advice on all your window treatments and custom soft furnishings - whether domestic or contract for hospitality. I work with clients Europe-wide so if you have a holiday home abroad I can work with your architect or building team remotely. Fixed prices give you certainty that your design fees won't go over budget. You can use Zoom, email and WhatsApp to liaise with me. I respond to ad-hoc requests within max 48 hours (but much sooner usually) Being a highly qualified project manager as well as interior designer means you get the design you approve communicated to your build team. Imagine your project finished and how you can be another one of my satisfied clients. (Testimonials available) Yours faithfully Rachel Davies BA Hons, APMP Interior Designer & PM

Peter A.'s review on Jul 23, 2020

I appointed Rachel to design 4 new bathrooms for my villa in Portugal. The architect who designed the refurbishment and extension was unable to interpret our ideas so we sought to an expert with relevant expertise. Based in the UK and having never seen the villa or met us personally, using email, phone and FaceTime we were able to exchange ideas and develop detailed proposals. Rachel, undertook research, sourced local suppliers, specified products and produced detailed plans and mood boards for each new bathroom. She works quickly and accurately and was responsive to the numerous challenges and changes that occurred as the build evolved. The Portuguese builders worked from her plans to complete the rooms as envisaged despite Rachel being 1000 miles away in UK. I can recommend Rachel for interior design work on any scale, she is talented and conscientious .

Anthony G.'s review on Jul 14, 2020

Working with Rachel has been such a pleasure. Her experience, training and collaborative ethos provide super designs. `Rach' will certainly remain our first port of call when any of our commercial refurbishment projects require a professional and creative interior design input.

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
I offer an efficient fixed price service with ongoing support for as long as I work with you (min 1 month).
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
A deposit is paid to secure your work. You have an initial 45 minute Zoom call where we discuss your needs in detail. I commence work with a written brief to ensure clarity of the scope and other constraints. You provide me with either measurements or existing plans ideally in CAD (.DWG) I then start work on your initial mood boards to show style and plans to show the layout and configuration of rooms. This also may include structural alterations such as non load bearing walls being moved. Structural changes can be accommodated with your architect or structural engineer approval where loads need calculating. You sign off on your initial concept layout plans and mood board. Next I give you the specifications that you requested in your initial brief. I support you via email, WhatsApp (good for photos) and Zoom with any queries to the design as we go along. Finally I deliver all plans, specifications and samples to allow you to complete your scheme as per your instructions.
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
Make sure you are a good fit. This is a collaborative job and personally I like to ensure that I deliver the style my client wants not one I impose on them. My forte is space planning, bathroom design (a former luxury spa designer for ESPA) and window treatments for projects large or small domestic or hospitality.
What questions should customers have ready before speaking to pros about their project?
Why should I use you? Can you accommodate changes to the design easily and within the set budget? Have you worked remotely before?
What are some good examples of past customers?
My last client was a private villa owner in Portugal. I worked remotely to deliver the scheme from architects plans.
How did you first get into this line of work?
I was inspired at a young age and started working at 15 in a soft furnishings store. I then went ok to gain my BAHons degree from Farnham College (Surrey University). I also studied AutoCAD for several years. Later when working in industry I gained my APMP project management qualification working on multi million refurb programmes for a national building society. After working internationally for world leaders ESPA in luxury spa design I went on to go freelance in 2009.
