Sometimes there is a mismatch between our lifestyle and our home. This is quite common, as when we journey through our lives, our families grow, children fly the nest, hobbies and interests change or are added, but our home tends to stay the same. With our interior design service we take a look at how you use your home, what you need from it and find innovative and stylish ways of making your home work in harmony with your lifestyle.
A recent interior design enquiry we received was during lockdown, a little challenging but we got around the restrictions by chatting over Zoom. The lady had bought a lot of Willow and Hen products, but she didn’t know how to place them in her home. She had bought a gorgeous candle holder and sent in a picture of her fireplace. Sue suggested the lady moved the candle holder from the mantle onto the fireplace, asked her to shuffle a few other pieces around and said to bring everything forward and closer together. The lady did all as Sue suggested and her response was: “OMG I can’t believe the difference that has made.” After these small, but super effective adjustments we arranged a Zoom call and Sue went all around her home virtually and made interior design suggestions for the whole house.
One particular issue this client faced was a lack of storage. Like the majority of us, her guest room tended to be used as a bit of a dumping ground. So Sue went through the room and re-designed it, utilising the existing furniture but adding some clever storage solutions. One of Sue’s suggestions was to use trunks as bedside tables, these look very country chic and can be used to store books in. Now, the guest room looks great and is ready to welcome visitors, it also houses treasured books and has lots of practical but stylish storage. A real dual use room!
