I contracted Morag Argiris of Flourish Interior Design to redesign one of my Restaurants in Newcastle. I had been referred to her through another business owner.
From our first meetings, Morag listened very intently to the brief and concepts I had in mind, and grasped exactly what I wanted. She was insistent that I be part of the whole concept & design process from our first meeting.
We discussed how the business operated, the clientele, location and many other factors to come up with the design, and her guidance proved invaluable.
Her keen eye for design completely transformed the restaurant.
The finishes and ideas of the concept, and final product, were original, workable and aesthetically brilliant for this project.
Her choice of lighting, hard finishes, furniture, right down to the smallest subtle details were excellent.
From beginning of the project to completion, Morag was always available for questions. Her meticulous organisation and project management skills, together with a can do attitude were apparent from start to finish.
Her professionalism with all trades required for the fit out was efficient & effortless.
The fit out of the restaurant, which was a complete refurbishment, was done in three days. Every trade was booked on time, and they were all on site with positive attitudes. I believe this was a direct result of Morag's warm, engaging manner and professionalism.
I have seen other restaurant refurbishments of the same size take far longer than Morag's project, and with a restaurant it is crucial that you minimise the time closed. Morag has a strong grasp of the significant financial impact a slow project can take. She schedules craftsmen and tradesmen brilliantly, including overnight activities, thereby reducing lost time.
She also looked after the graphic design for the entire concept plus signage.
I could not be more pleased with the result she delivered.
Her design skills completely exceeded my expectation. Importantly, my clientele responded very positively to the refurbishment and new atmosphere. The resulting design is unquestionable, and a stunning result.
Morag never lost sight and feel for what I wanted for this project, resulting in a stylish and relaxed restaurant.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Morag for any design project. Since this project she has carried out the interior design for my residence. This too, was an easy process.
We are currently collaborating on a number of large commercial projects.
