I was lucky enough to buy my first house aged 20, which was a complete renovation project from top to bottom. This process wasn’t completely new to me as I have been brought up in a family who’ve owned and renovated flats and houses around central London for the last 40 years, but it was the first time I had run a project and put my stamp on all the interior decisions completely by myself. I have always loved the process of a home being transformed giving it a beautiful, new, fresh look and maximizing the space and functionality.
Before having my two children, I worked within the music television industry, project managing up to 200 employees, working to strict time lines and tight budgets, skills which have transferred to running a building project or completing a kitchen installation on time, working with tradespeople, builders and suppliers. Over the years, I have built up great relationships with suppliers, ensuring a smooth and stress free process from start to finish.
Home interiors and styling became my main focus in 2010 and I have been fortunate enough to put my skills and passion into practice by creating and working on some beautiful, stylish and individual homes. I love the feeling of walking into a room and seeing the potential to create something amazing, maximising space, mixing fabrics, materials, colours and textures. I do a job which I love and now can help make other people’s homes a place they love too.
Canadian born and trained Interior Designer, I have over 8 years’ experience in creating interiors for the residential and commercial market. I have always had a passion for design in interiors and fashion.
Most of my early design projects were in Canada where I gained a varied scope of experience in CADD drawings, design, selection of colour, finishes and furniture which would be presented to clients at every stage. I have worked on hotel projects, offices, retail stores and condominiums.
After moving to London in 2002, I gained more experience in interior design building strong relationships and working closely with furniture dealers in London. This gave me access to an extensive furniture library from all over Europe, handling all types of furniture specifications for residential and commercial projects for Interior Designers.
I also worked on a freelance basis, sourcing furniture, and styling commercial properties in Mayfair; an Architects’ residence in London Waterloo, and a private residence in the Cayman Islands. I have a strong flair for colour and textures, putting them together in a setting that is unique and personable to each client.
