I create relaxed and uplifting interiors with an emphasis on re-using existing furniture and textiles. I am highly skilled at layering different patterns and styles so they sit harmoniously together, creating individual and lasting interiors – places to feel good about and happy in.

My approach to interiors has evolved to embrace the practice of ‘slow’ interior design and is built on a solid foundation of sustainability and respect for the natural environment.

My designs are often realised as part of a gradual process that can take place over a period of weeks or months; this allows for a much more collaborative approach and significantly reduces the impact and disruption of an all-out immediate transformation. Business can continue as usual, costs are spread over time and ideas form and unfold rather than feeling forced or constrained.

A consultation for a small area or single room space is £250. We’ll discuss your needs, interests and priorities and how you want to feel in your new space. Together, we’ll explore colour schemes, fabric and wallpaper designs and begin to establish your individual style. Using my unique skill set, my priority will always be to revive and re-imagine your existing belongings, this minimises environmental impact and keeps costs down.

“I was in desperate need of some professional help and guidance with improving the look, vibe, and identity of the multidisciplinary and chiropractic clinic I took over two years ago. The clinic felt impersonal, cold and unwelcoming- not a friendly place to be or work in. Emma met me at the clinic and we walked through the space and discussed the route a new patient would take on the start of their journey with us. With Emma’s friendly and expert guidance, amazing eye for detail and very high standards of craftsmanship we have implemented a number of changes that have totally transformed our client ‘welcome area’.

I was able to keep the clinic open whilst Emma worked as she is personable, highly organised and incredibly neat and tidy; in fact my clients loved watching the creation of our feature wall as they waited for their appointments. We are now in the second phase of Emma’s design, bringing touches of the welcome area into each of the six clinic rooms to tie the whole space together. I couldn’t be happier with the way my clinic looks now and it has been an absolute pleasure having Emma on board.”
