We ask a lot of our homes; to provide a refuge and retreat from the outside world, yet also to present a public face to those we invite inside; to meet a million and one practical requirements yet also to reflect our own personal tastes. Part problem solving, part creativity, part psychology -- my role as an Interior Designer is to work with you to understand how you live and deliver a space which enables you to be yourself one hundred percent. Many of my clients know how they want their home to feel but are struggling to know how to get there; or are bamboozled by too much choice and not enough time. Others are concerned about wasting money on costly mistakes or are struggling with restrictions relating to Listed Status, size or property style.
I listen, without judging or dictating and I work with you to deliver what you need (not always what you first think you need!). In collaboration, we create spaces that are beautiful, enhance and enable your lifestyles and reflect the story of who you are.
After obtaining a degree in English Literature from Cambridge University, I pursued a career in PR and marketing, renovated several properties, relocated a couple of times and acquired a family. By this time, I had become a walking, talking reference library of paint colours, fabrics and furnishings and I decided that the time had come to take action! I retrained at Inchbald School of Design to gain a Diploma in Interior Design and Decoration with Distinction and am now working in a freelance capacity for both individuals and design consultancies. I am certified in AutoDesk AutoCAD software and am also trained in the use of SketchUp.
