Alongside Mountain People, Sebastian has worked as an interior designer since 2012, having gained experience at an internationally-renowned design studio in Chelsea, London.
His first independent project was a ski chalet renovation in Samoëns followed by a full London renovation for a two bedroom apartment in Battersea. In 2017, a new project to redesign a ski chalet in Sixt-Fer-a-Cheval, involved re-configuring spaces and sourcing all new furniture, both to please the client’s taste and to add potential value to commercial holiday lettings.
Sebastian is passionate about interiors and design and enjoys working with his clients to achieve excellent results and adding value to rental properties.
The initial stage of a project requires a budget, time frame and general logistics to be defined. Once this has been established, we discuss the project in more detail – which rooms are being renovated, the theme and budget allocation for each space. Mood boards are created and presented to the client with examples of colours, textures, fabrics & furnishings. Digital floorplans are drawn up to illustrate any new design and furniture placements. At this point, we discuss likes and dislikes in order to refine the direction of the project. Once this has been finalised, we create a detailed buying list and send it to the client for approval. This list includes a room by room breakdown, itemising each chosen piece. Once these stages have been approved, we charge an initial deposit and begin ordering. After receipt of deliveries, we take care of the installation and work alongside local tradesmen to fit fixtures and fittings. At the end of the project, costs are re-calculated and the client is invoiced for the final balance, including any design fees as agreed at the start of the project.
