One of my earliest happy memories is of being allowed to choose the colour scheme for my bedroom when I was about 9 years old. I remember spending ages looking through wallpaper books before eventually deciding on one with a white background and tiny, pretty yellow and blue flowers - I loved it. I have been fascinated by colour ever since.
I have worked in the interiors sector for over sixteen years. While my children were little I worked for a small company which specialised in making bespoke worktops and vanity tops from the most beautiful marble and granite. I helped customers choose the best types of stone for their schemes, from both a practical and an aesthetic view, guiding them through the many decisions involved. The results were stunning with many happy customers!
Then I joined paint and wallpaper specialists Farrow & Ball and was, after a while, appointed manager of a brand new showroom. My in-depth training at Farrow & Ball covered all aspects of their highly pigmented paints and their hand crafted wallpapers, as well as colour training to learn how to use their edited palette of colours to create beautiful schemes for every individual customer. In what little spare time I had I studied for an interior decor qualification - hard work but invaluable.
Now my children have left home I am very excited to have taken the plunge to set up my own colour design service. This friendly and professional service is focused on making all the colours in your home work harmoniously together to create the perfect environment for you.
