This is the first book to set out the professional standard for running an interior design project. Suitable for all interior designers – whether working alone or as part of a design team, and on projects of all sizes – it provides guidance for every stage of a job, from appraisal of the client’s requirements through to practical completion and payment.

Set out as a step-by-step process which dovetails with the standard procedures used by architects and contractors, it is full of practical advice and includes model letters and specimen forms which can be quickly adapted to any job. It also contains guidance to the legal background, a clause-by-clause explanation of the standard form of client contract (ID/10), and an introduction to space planning. Fully endorsed by the British Institute of Interior Design, it will bring a professional rigour to the way projects run and is vital for maintaining a competitive edge in a crowded field.Diana and Stephen Yakeley have run a multi-disciplinary architectural, interior and garden design practice for many years. This book is the distillation of their considerable professional knowledge and experience.
