The journey of designing a bespoke interior always begins with the client. What may seem obvious or ‘just right’ to one person might feel wrong to the next, so the process begins with learning to understand, articulate and translate their individual tastes.

“I start every project by getting to know a bit about our client’s lifestyle and their thoughts for the function of the space. With this I then build up a sense of the mood they are trying to achieve via an abstract colour and texture concept,” explains Sarah Luck, our Design Director.

‘My approach in design is always to fully understand the customer or the brief before I presume to compose a design, and then equally important is knowing when to stop designing,’ he explains. ‘It is so often the downfall of many designers, in trying to demonstrate their talent by unnecessary embellishment, which so often divides opinion, adds cost and offers little or nothing in terms of functionality.’

Alexis Rollings-Walsh, Creative Director with over a decade of experience at Sunseeker, agrees. The process of designing a luxury yacht interior can be both intimidating as well as exciting, so she feels it is important to take the client with them along the journey, explaining exactly what it entails.

“Listening and collaborating with the client is the most exciting part of the process and creates a very important energy and understanding for the project,” she says. “No two clients are ever the same and as much as my role is to guide and create their dream interior, it is also a pleasure to learn and take inspiration from clients and their ideas of how their interior design should evolve. The role as interior designer is always one of learning and understanding how others live.”
