Interior Design

At the core of our Interior Design practice is our commitment to connect, listen and communicate with our clients and transfer their vision into engaging, inspiring and functional spaces. We love that through innovative interior design we can have a positive impact on the way people interact with and experience their surroundings.

We have a proven track record to work cohesively with clients, developers and architects on projects of all sizes and scale from residential and commercial.

Our Interior Designers

Our diverse and highly skilled team at ARTAS Interiors is headed by Interior Designer and Manager, Nicole Armitage. Originally from Melbourne, Nicole moved to Tasmania 18 years ago to study interior design and raise a young family. A former background in management and customer service cultivated a deep appreciation for the value of the client relationship, whilst her family connections in the health and education sectors, fuelled her passion for utilising design to generate a positive end user experience. An unwavering enthusiasm for creating beautiful spaces now spans across all areas, with her residential work counting as some of her most fulfilling.

With over 12 years experience at ARTAS, Nicole has honed her skills in creating a perfect synergy between interior design, architectural design, function and aesthetics. Her focus on end user engagement, budget sensitive design and the continual pursuit of innovative solutions acts as a common thread through the team of interior designers, project technicians and architectural illustrators. With relationships that extend beyond the studio, ARTAS Interiors is supported by strong industry connections both locally and nationally.

  • Space Planning / Best Practice Design with an emphasis on:
  • Activity Based Work Environments

The Process

Not sure how the process works?

We typically start with an initial briefing, this gives us the opportunity to view the site (if possible at this stage). We will ask questions regarding the project and the desired outcome, budget, ‘must haves’, style direction, limitations and discuss the level of service you may require.

We will then provide you with a fee proposal. This will detail the scope of work as discussed and provide a breakdown of the associated services.  We offer a fixed fee and hourly rate options suited to your specific needs and budget.

At this stage we start to develop the design concept, we may meet with you again to add a further layer of information to our brief. A materials palette is formed, samples are sourced and design directions investigated.

We would then meet with you again to present the concept design. Physical samples, colour boards, imagery and sketches are used to illustrate the design’s progress. We take onboard your feedback and discuss the future design direction and next stage.

The design is then refined, any revisions included and documented. Finishes, fittings and fixtures are scheduled and drawings produced. A physical sample package can be provided as required.

Tender or costing can be included in the service if desired, along with contract administration where we will liaise with trades, carry out site inspections and provide advice / information for the construction period.

Choice overload – streamline the process

With such a diverse range of options available and the inherent demand for continual decision making, it’s easy to see why many people feel ‘choice overload’! We live and breathe design and are continually working on projects that exposes us to new and innovative choices in design.

This means when you describe what you want for your vision, we can refine the options and choices to make the decision making process easier.

Your needs and aspirations drive our design.

We are passionate about listening to you, creating and delivering innovative, integrated and flexible design solutions.

“ARTAS’ Interior design service effectively brings together all elements of the project. Customer service is prioritised with a flexible, friendly, efficient and contemporary approach.”
