Transforming Your House Into A Home with Alessandra Bodmer
How to Make Your New House A Real Home
Have you recently moved into your apartment or house in Switzerland and are at a loss as to how to decorate it to reflect your personality and your needs? Maybe you’re still staring at white walls, and gazing down at lifeless tiles? You’re perplexed at which light fittings would suit your rooms and as for rugs and curtains you don’t know where to start! Maybe your dining table just doesn’t look right in the dining room – or is it the chairs? You may not be in such a great dilemma, but certainly when you move into your place in Switzerland and find it devoid of bulbs, never mind light fittings, decorating your new house and creating your own style can be a challenge.
It could also be that the furnishings from your last place just don’t really go – or perhaps they need to be “worked” in a different way? And where in the world can you find the right furniture and accessories for a good price?
That’s where Alessandra Bodmer comes in! An experienced interior designer and home styler, Alessandra listens to your needs, your wishes, works out the practicalities of what can be done (and what can’t!) and puts it all into action. She also wants to hear what your partner and the whole family want to achieve too. She then uses this information to transform your living quarters “from a house to a home” that you will all love and that will work for all of you! Alessandra can help with both small and large projects, enabling you to see the wood from the trees and to develop a style that will reflect your personality, be practical and make you happy!
Alessandra’s 5 steps to Your Ideal Home
Alessandra can do everything from designing a new layout within the existing structure, to sourcing key pieces of furniture which will really make your room “pop”. She can also design a complete new layout which may or may not involve structural work, depending on your requirements.
So How Does It Work?
Initial Complimentary 1 Hour Home Visit
First of all Alessandra will meet you at your property for a no-charge one hour consultation. During this time she will assess what needs to be done and listen to your needs and requirements. She will ask you questions, (some you may not have thought of) and get an idea for the scope of the work. She will explain the process and show you examples from previous projects so you get an idea of what it could look like.
Are you planning a huge structural undertaking involving moving walls and creating new rooms, or is this more to do with furnishings, colours, fabrics, tones? Alessandra does everything from full room “makeovers” and home styling, all the way to guiding you through the process of commissioning builders and project management.

No Job Too Small
If you’re not keen on any structural work, or major installations, then Alessandra can also help you with home styling. Through selected furnishings and beautifully chosen objects, Alessandra can transform the look and feel of your living areas into a home you can be truly proud of.
Style inspiration and definition
Once you decide to go ahead, Alessandra will inspire you to create a “Mood Board” reflecting all the things you have discussed. Once you see things on the board you may well have changed your mind on some aspects, be happy with others – or need to discuss further. At this stage of the process you will also get a rough estimate of cost and you agree the contract.
Pre project Conceptual Design and Planning
Alessandra will project managing everything from the meetings with contractors and suppliers and make sure you are kept appraised every step of the way to avoid any nasty surprises. She will also create 3 D hand-drawn visualisations so you can imagine what the end result will look like. She will also provide you with a cost estimate for full project implementation. Wherever possible Alessandra finds samples and get quotes from her trusted network of craftsmen for you.
Next Alessandra will go through all the options so that you can make the best decisions with a tight control of the budget at all times. If construction is required, she will oversee the implementation with her recommended craftsmen and will keep a close eye on all the technical issues.
Final decoration and staging
This is where the technical drawings are finished, you get advice on selected items to purchase – or individual pieces are designed. Hopefully, it’s at this stage that you will now become one of the many satisfied customers Alessandra already has and will be delighted with your new ideal home!
