Living Room


Your home should be original just like you. A true reflection of who you are.

And yet you feel excluded from having that ideal attractive home because of a limited budget or time. 

I say No! It doesn't have to be this way...

"We shape our dwellings, and afterward, our dwellings shape us."



Ready to do something about it?

Everyone deserves to have a lovely home that is a comforting retreat, fashioned with elements that have precious meaning to them.

Lately, so many of us have become fixated on the expectations of others and trends. This has made it difficult to make decisions and create an environment that is comfortable, practical, and unique. 

And yet, we are surrounded by some of the most important items and elements that have particular meaning to us. Your furnishings, collections, and accessories - a unique combination that holds precious items that define your journey so far.

These very pieces should be considered as the beginning of the solution to achieving that dream home. By doing this, you immediately start the process with an advantage.  


Does any of these ring a bell? 

Maybe even more than one of these...


You've already worked with an interior designer, spent huge sums of money, but still feel your home doesn't reflect who you are.


You spend too much time trying to do it alone. By not having access to the right tools and resources, you get stuck and fail to make progress.


Life with your little ones is becoming more challenging space-wise and perhaps even financially so you are not ready to buy new furniture. And yet you still want to have a lovely home that is safe and practical too.


You're just setting up your first home, you've bought your furniture but suddenly realise you have no clue about how to pull a room together.


You've just relocated either from a different country or a different part of the country. Buying new furniture and accessories just isn't an option, either financially or emotionally as these are the parts of your life that remain constant.

Guess What?

I know exactly where you're coming from and I'm here to help.

I've had my fair share of buying my first furniture for my first home, relocating countries and towns, and... having to restyle our home to fit around our two little ones.


In the midst of all this, I had my pieces that were a constant. And I always found a way to make them work beautifully wherever I called home.


All of those precious things in your home reflect who you are, their history merits respect. Your personal style is paramount and deserves respect.


With my professional background and experience, we're going make the most of what's already yours to make your space better. And the best part of all is that you'll get a custom-fit solution to help solve your biggest design dilemmas.

It all begins with the discovery call

Comfort Smithson Jo Cunningham Photography Oct 21-43.jpg

All of my services start with a 20min free no-obligation discovery call.  At the scheduled time of your call, we’ll discuss your project, your ideas, and your expectations. I’ll also walk you through the process and the results you can expect so you can decide if this service is right for you. We’ll use the opportunity to make sure we’re the perfect fit before you commit.

If you decide to work with me, I’ll tell you the exact steps for getting started. If you decide not to work with me or if we aren’t a perfect fit, I’m happy to share other resources to help you get what you need.

When we start working together you can expect things to go like this...

The next phase is the 4 step process which will always begin with a paid non-refundable 2 hr initial design consultation

Once booked in, watch your email for questions from me.


Before we meet again (either at your home or virtually (via Zoom) ), this aforementioned email will help me gain a thorough understanding of who you are and what you envision for your space as well as family or individual needs. 

The current rate for the 2-hour initial consultation is £525.


A 2hr kick-off meeting. Work through inspiration, design styles, loose plans and ideas. Set a general design direction, budget and I will take measurements or talk through your existing plan. Establish a brief outline of scope of work, timelines and project start date.

Design plan

I’ll do the Research & Preparation, concept design, floor, furniture and lighting plans, moodboard. As well as, anything else that is needed for the design. We’ll meet to discuss, tweak as needed, and watch as the real magic happens.

Implementation day

Ordering time begins! Once you’ve approved your design, we will help keep track of the orders. This is a no-stress zone for you, as we project manage to the installation day. We then return to your home with these on the booked date and style your spaces.

Last, but not least

Uncork the bubbly! With everything installed and inspected, we bring accessories and finishing touches. Plus a complimentary photography session of your stunning new home and (with your permission) our design portfolio.


How does this sound?

Know exactly what you'll pay upfront with a flat-fee service rate and no surprise invoices


Avoid making costly design mistakes by getting a clear, complete, and fail-safe plan. Starting with "shopping" your home and if you want or need to add pieces, I'll show you what and where to buy. 


Work with an interior design expert and finally get help and support sorting through your design ideas so you can create a cohesive, practical, and functional space. 


You will have the beautiful home you've always wanted filled with your precious pieces that are reflections of your life journey.


You'll learn to trust yourself and your design style.

What others have to say...

Emma Mugisha, Architect

You see things through to the end. You conceptualise something and work towards realising it no matter how difficult or how long it takes. That's the impression anyone who sees your finished projects picks out as a strength. It's a strength because you have realised several of diverse ideas using your design thinking knowledge.

I'll treat your home like my own ...

... which means I respectfully don’t work with just anyone.

To be mindful of your time (and mine) a discovery will help fast-track if we’re a fit or not–’cause when we are? Thats where the magic happens.

As a mother of two little ones under 5years, I can only work with a limited number of clients so this books out fast—go ahead and book in your call TODAY. Clients who book in advance end up being more prepared than “I needed this yesterday” last-minute types (you know the ones).

This is the time to go after it. Because a year from now, you will have wished you started today. But, if you're still nervous to take the plunge, no worries. I've got you covered!

Our Discovery Call should help clarify all those questions. It doesn't lock you into anything - and remember there's no commitment required after that. We won't move forward until you're completely ready.
