I can't quite believe it but after several years of trying we have finally got our hands on a shop unit in the fab market town of Southwell in Nottinghamshire. We are going to use it as a design studio as well as a home boutique selling fun, useful or just plain gorgeous home accessories!
We are stocking a wide range of brands from both the UK and Europe ranging from some biggies like Vita lighting, Magis and Rice DK to some super cool newer home grown brands like Love Frankie, V&C designs and Lauren Aston.
We have been renovating the shop for a few months as it was in a sad state to start with but we are nearly ready at last. The store will be open in the next few weeks !
Having cut my teeth on countless house renovations, I decided to go back to school to gain some design theory to enhance my many years of experience and passion for interior décor.
I am based in Nottinghamshire and have managed countless renovation projects both for myself and others over the years. These have ranged from modern studio flats through country cottages to Georgian properties.
My life as a Mum of three (and 2 messy dogs!) has given me an efficient and practical mindset that is needed for creating the optimum balance of aesthetics and functional living.
I believe in a pragmatic approach to interior design; my own home bears witness to this: a eclectic mix of modern and vintage, of brand new and eBay treasures; of muted paint and bright splashes of colour.
We have recently branched out and started to design for businesses as well as homes.
We appreciate that there are different requirements with commercial jobs but we still think that the core idea - Inspire, Design & Create holds true.
