What inspires me
I love what I do and I am inspired by the people I work with. I love seeing the look on their faces when I transform a room for them and they fall in love with what I’ve done.
Whatever I do I have to be proud to put my name to it and think “if I owned that, would I love it?” If the answer is no, it doesn’t make it out through my front door.
I get really excited by working with different fabrics and will give anything a go if it’s something I think a customer will love. I’m a bit like a kid in a sweet shop when I get a new delivery of fabrics and spend a long time savouring the feel of each one. I recently ordered some gorgeous tweed for a farmer’s wife to put in her living room. When the room was finished it was so perfect I cried. It’s that feeling of joy that inspires me.
Brave New World
In the past I have transformed my own home using my design ideas. My friends and family loved it and I was thrilled to be featured in “Your Home” magazine. Since then I have worked by personal recommendation on helping my clients design the rooms and homes to their personal taste.
My many years experience in making beautiful soft furnishings, curtains and blinds means I am able to create those special things individual to each design. No more having to compromise because you cannot find a match.
I hope to feature some of these beautiful homes here in my Journal in the future.
