David's First Blog!

Welcome to my first Interior Design blog!

It is hard to believe that it is February already, January disappears so quickly in my world... The Christmas rush is a distant memory as we plan showroom changes, social media and, most importantly, new schemes and design projects for clients. 2017 was a busy year for me – completing city apartments in London, homes across Yorkshire and a holiday home near Marbella. How I yearn for some of that sunshine now!

One of the things I love most about my job is the variety it brings. No two projects are the same and listening to and interpreting a client’s requirements, needs and desires is as much a part of my role as a designer, as putting colours, schemes and plans together.

I am often asked where inspiration comes from; the answer is many places… When I first visit a client’s home it may simply be the feel that the property has. Sometimes it is a picture, vase or an interesting piece of furniture. Other times it may be something I have seen in a magazine, online or perhaps a fabric that just feels right for that window or chair.

Fortunately there is never a shortage of new ideas to inspire us. This morning the new Osborne & Little collections are being presented to us and as always I am so excited to see which creative directions their designers have taken over the last few months. The new collections will be in the showroom and window over the coming weeks – why not call in to take a look.

I will be writing my blog each month so if you share my passion for interior design please keep a look out. You can also follow us on social media, just click the links. That is it for my first ramble, I need a fabric and wallpaper fix.........
