We love design. We live and breathe it. Our Pinterest boards, pin-up boards and social media feeds are filled with images that inspire us, and our desks and shelves are stocked with design books and magazines that we scour with relish every day. Designing is what we do, at work, whilst walking, when we’re driving and in our dreams. Our goal is to filter what we watch, view and read through our own sensibilities, and mix these with our own voice so it becomes something different, original and unique for our clients.

It’s this design voice that we tap into when embarking on a new project, be it a new build or a renovation. And it’s our years and years of experience, along with our design filter, and our passion for making a house a home, that has made KWD a go-to source of advice and inspiration for more than 10 years.

We are so proud of the custom design service we offer when we work with clients from concept to completion, but we are equally proud of the design solution we have developed for those who aren’t in a position to pay for a custom collaboration.

Explains our Founder and Director, Kate Walker, “At KWD we believe great design should be accessible to everybody, regardless of budget and time constraints. And that’s why we are so passionate about KWD & Co. Access, a design solution to suit everyone’s design needs. Whether you are undertaking a new build or renovating room by room, this consultation can help guide you through the key elements – which aesthetic to choose, what shade of paint will work best, what adjustments can be made to your space planning to create the very best floor plan to suit your needs, and what hard finishes will work best in your bathrooms, laundries and kitchen. Our design experts will cut through the noise for you, provide advice and inspiration, and give you the confidence you need so you can trust your decisions.”

With these two very special KWD & Co. Access consultation offerings, you can get inside the brain of the KWD design team at a fraction of the price that it would cost for a bespoke design service.
