Interior Designer in Buckinghamshire
Creating beautiful bespoke interior designs in Buckinghamshire from Hannah, who offers the best interior design service for any home, backed with a small team.
I believe in a world where happiness and positivity can be found from the way you live your life at home. I also believe that the process for getting there should be simple, enjoyable and fun, making sure you get what you want, supported by a trusted professional. That’s why I’ve made it my mission to create spaces and interiors that make people feel well, combining colour, beauty and practicality in equal measure with a healthy dollop of fun and style.
From a moodboard idea and brief, to a residential dream my interior design services will provide you with attention to detail, offering amazing colour schemes to complement shapes and inner structure, including soft furnishings and furniture ideas, whether that's in a bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, office or living room! I have a fantastic eye for lighting in a house (super important!); have excellent suppliers for flooring, and I am happy to give carefully curated advice for a feature wall even! We will work as a team in your property to ensure your new space (whether it's a modern and contemporary vibe, or a period range feel) leaving you feeling inspired as we transform your house into your dream home. Cliche, but true.
Do you have a small space to work from? Or a cottage with awkward configurations? Choosing a designer can open your eyes to the creativity and tricks that are used for maximising living spaces and brightening up dark rooms. If you are undecided or need a home energy boost, working closely with me will allow you to fall in love with your dream home as you see the concepts and creations come to life.
Having someone in to redecorate your home is lovely but working with a Buckinghamshire interior designer will change your day-to-day life! We are the same breed!
My studio is based in Henley on Thames and I work with clients all across Buckinghamshire including Marlow, Bourne End, Beaconsfield, Amersham, Chesham, Princes Risborough, Gerrards Cross, Aylesbury, Penn, West Wycombe, Chalfont St Giles, and Chalfont St Peter.
In a recently completed project for a lovely family in Marlow, the clients' lifestyle required a personal touch, together with the correct layout for their growing family. Each client has a unique requirement, you can see more of my design projects here.
I would love to hear about your plans, please get in touch to arrange a no obligation meeting to discuss your Buckinghamshire interior design project in more detail.
Here are some often asked questions (FAQs):
Interior Designer, Interior Stylist, Interior Decorator, Interior Architect. What’s the difference? Read on because there are big differences in our roles and this might interest you!
The interior design services’ industry has thankfully changed over the last ten year or so, which is a good thing! Often people assume a designer will sweep in and take your cash just to add some bling you don’t particularly want. With a digital world upon us there is more transparency and a better understanding of décor open to homeowners and interior designers alike, meaning that it’s now an affordable service.
Let’s start here:
What’s the difference between an interior designer and an interior decorator?
Of course these overlap but here’s a quick snapshot of the differences:
Hiring an interior designer (sometimes known as an interior architect)
Many of us interior designers have qualified architects working alongside us, so we can offer a larger variety of services. You know what, we also have builders up our sleeves and many rental furniture experts who can help with interior designing for styling and staging purposes!
Ultimately, we provide everything from space planning to décor designs for the interiors of a home or garden office, and project manage the process to completion. Our forte includes styling the end result as a complete service.
• Translating a brief into a design.
• Create designs to suit a specific budget.
• Provide presentations, mood boards, and ideas to explain thought process and get approval for finishes for all interior spaces for not only domestic, but commercial and retail.
• Design, specify and/or source finishes such as flooring, ceilings, wallpaper and paint for a project
• Design or manage bespoke furniture and upholstery items such as headboards, chairs, sofas and built-in furniture.
• Specify, source and supply furniture, fittings and equipment from trade-only sources , which often come with trade discounts to clients
• Understands Building Regulations
• Renovation and interior structural design projects
• Material and furnishing and logistics of these
• Planning space and function through to project end of the more gorgeous detail of accessory
Not all interior designers will take on all of the above, but in the main, this is what they offer.
Hiring an interior decorator
Ok, so I often work with interior decorator, and their focus is predominantly on the look of a space and therefore (without an interior designer) would be choosing paint colours, possible furniture colours and general “decorating”. They are more focused on aesthetics, so Interior decorators generally advise on colour and textures, and sprucing up!
• Focuses on aesthetics of interior
• Assists interior design
• Prepare and apply paint, wallpaper and other finishes to surfaces
Why should I hire an interior designer?
Ever started a project and given up halfway, or don’t have an eye for space and creativity, or simply don’t have the time as busy with family and work? You know what? Bizarrely, interior designers can actually save you time, headache stress and years of living in a home that’s not quite “finished”. They can also save money from their trade sourcing!
How do I choose the right interior designer for my home?
Recommendations are important when it comes to bringing someone into your home, but also looking at a portfolio of their work and getting in touch to have a chat! Get some visual inspo by looking at Pinterest and mags to get the feel of what you would like and a brilliant interior designer will be able to see the bigger picture for you.
