WHO IS M?

MICHAEL BARNES

Founder

Having graduated from De Montfort University with a first class honours degree in Interior Design, Michael set up House by M Ltd with a notion that quality interior design should be accessible to anyone who strives to live or work within a space that delights and inspires them on a daily basis.

 

HousebyM works with a collaborative approach that allows clients to realise the true potential of their spaces and to see the possibilities that they may otherwise be overlooking. It's an informal approach to the design process that puts aside the trends and over-thought concepts, instead House by M's focus is on the individual in order to create an interior that is authentic and a true reflection of you and your personality.

It's important to feel that your home is a true reflection of you and your personality. HousebyM works collaboratively to not only ensure that the space being designed is suited to your personal requirements, but also to make sure your individual character is represented within the concept.  

Every design project is different, as are the needs of each client, which is why HousebyM brings its design expertise & industry knowledge to help create a space that’s uniquely yours.

DESIGN CONSULTATION

A design consultation is an opportunity for us to discuss your space in detail and start the conceptual process. It's a time to listen to any décor dilemmas, learn more about your vision for the space and hone in on those problems you would like to address. A consultation can typically last anywhere between 1-2 hours, or depending on the project in hand HousebyM is available for ongoing consultancy. 

A consultation is typically carried out on-site however if preferred these can be completed online or by phone. 

Solutions may include ideas for spacial layout, colour selection, bespoke joinery and other architectural elements, furnishings, lighting, art, window coverings, and décor pieces. 

DESIGN CREATION

Perfect if you're not sure where to start and you're looking to have your space professionally designed. Using the latest software, HousebyM is able to create both 2D & 3D visuals that allows clients to see their completed projects all before a paintbrush is even lifted. 

These visuals are a critical communication tool, not only do they allow us to see how the project will look once completed, but they also allow us to make any necessary changes in a timely manner so that you can implement the finalised design as soon as possible. 

 

HousebyM prides itself on being able to provide total clarity of a proposal, this is why each design is accompanied with a full report which details the design concept along with any installation or styling information. 

DESIGN DELIVERY

A complete package which takes your design from the initial concept all the way to installation. Along with continued guidance & advice, you'll also benefit from complete design management ensuring each timescale is met and the appropriate trades are booked and working to the desired schedules. 

 

Depending on the client's preference, HousebyM can be involved in the design delivery on a consultancy basis to ensure each process is running as it should be, or responsibility for the entire project can be passed to us to ensure a smooth and

worry-free experience.
