We do more than decorate spaces, we redesign them with careful consideration for the ways in which you use them.  From individual room designs to complete property renovations, we can advise on improved layout and creative finishes and produce a full design specification.  For us, each project is unique; we love to use colour, pattern, unusual textures and finishes and enjoy working with local artists and crafts people, so it is tailored just for you and reflects your personality.  We love bringing old heirlooms and new pieces together.  We particularly relish designing bespoke furniture and fittings; restoring original features and sourcing traditional or new, but complementary, finishes and products.  We love 20th Century architecture, interiors and furniture and enjoy working with new designers.  We also know about antiques, we know our Georgian from our Jacobethan, our Adams from our Eames, and have contacts with auctioneers and dealers around the country to find the right pieces of furniture or art.

Claire is a wonderfully creative, thorough and professional interior designer. Her vision and attention to detail are impressive. Her ability to source unique products that take into consideration the period of the home and the needs of the client is fantastic. If you use Claire for any project you can be sure of receiving a lovely finished product.

Claire has brought her expert and creative eye everytime, as we've undertaken the decoration and interior design of our new house. We have hired Claire on a number of occassions from researching fabric/furniture pieces, advice on cost-effective solutions through to the designing our art deco style lounge. It's fun working with Claire but more than that she always brings a fresh perspective to our inital ideas and has sourced a cost effective approach on every occassion. If you're a busy working individual or couple I'd highly recommend Claire to Project Manage your latest interior design dreams.

Claire designed and managed the refurbishment of my apartment. She demonstrated a keen eye for layout, a detailed knowledge of product sourcing and an absolute passion to deliver the best she could for me within a restricted budget. I am thrilled with the results.

You oversaw every aspect of the design, from choosing units and worktops to which light bulbs I should buy! You always offered me choices, accurate costs and your own, very valuable, design opinions. The refit happened on time, on budget and with you present to supervise everything… you made my life very easy indeed – thank you!
