How I work

APPROACH TO INTERIOR DESIGN WORK

Interior decorators cost a fortune don`t they? Surely, they won`t be interested in helping me with a small task like choosing curtains? Won’t they try to impose their tastes on my home? 

My aim is to bring the advantages of interior decoration to people whether the job is big or small. Everything from a complete interior makeover to those who just need to change certain aspects of their homes.  Or perhaps you can`t find what you are looking for and don`t have the time to do your own research. I offer a variety of different and affordable packages.

Working with an interior decorator does not always require a large budget. It can often be a money saver as I can help clients avoid expensive mistakes when planning changes to their rooms or properties. I source the best possible products within my client`s budget.

It is vital to respect and consider my clients` preferences rather than mine. Getting to know my customers and their environment provides the basis on which to propose and carry out design solutions. My job is to guide those who seek advice through the vast amount of choices available and help them put together a scheme which they feel comfortable with. I respect people`s personal tastes as ultimately it is my clients who need to love their homes and live in them.

Numerous clients have given us repeat work and returned asking for help with their second or new homes and others have become and remained good friends. Both are the best proof of customer satisfaction.

 

 

DO I HAVE MY OWN TRADEMARK STYLE?

My focus is entirely on my client`s style and requirements rather than my own. My job is to make sure everything works well together. I have designed a broad range of decorating solutions from minimalist to traditional and everything in between. Where appropriate I have also combined a mix of styles. My clients’ properties cover a wide range from apartments and individual houses to mountain chalets.

 

 

WHO ARE MY SUPPLIERS / HOW DO I STAY UP TO DATE AND SOURCE PRODUCTS

I have a substantial portfolio of trade accounts with a broad range of top furniture, fabric and accessories companies.  Suppliers I am working with include Designers Guild, Colefax and Fowler, Osbourne and Little, Chelsea Textiles, Vaughan Lighting, Porta Romana, Marie's Corner, De Le Cuona and Mis En Demeure.  For bespoke sofa and chair orders I am working with a well established furniture manufacturer.  My portfolio is regularly updated. 

For each project I source companies that are able to supply the best possible products for my clients. The suppliers can be anything from trade or internet companies to shops, auction houses, furniture markets or other outlets.

In addition to specific project research, I remain up-to-date with the latest design trends and products. This involves using the appropriate media for my research, regular visits to interior design trade fairs, show rooms or related outlets and individual appointments with trade suppliers.
