Affordable interior design service

After the year we have had, does your home need a bit of a refurb? Our homes have nurtured us, been our school rooms, places of work and even our gyms. And just like us, are now perhaps in need of a little care and attention. Maybe you have decided to move house and are looking for some new ideas? For whatever your stage of life, Styling Box is my affordable bespoke interior design service (in person or remotely) that provides you with a bespoke interior design scheme with fabric, wallpaper and paint samples.

Investing in affordable design advice before a project starts will not only help to reassure you but will help to save time and avoid making costly mistakes. During the process of putting together your bespoke scheme, I will spend time finding out about you and your lifestyle before creating a design scheme in a beautiful and useful Styling Box.  You will receive a report with links to products which cover where possible sustainable products such as vintage and antiques as well as new. Alongside the report, a Pinterest board will highlight useful storage, lighting, furniture and accessories.

Create a beautiful home with Styling Box

It doesn’t matter what stage you are at in life, Styling Box can help you create a beautiful home, even with just a few improvements.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you are:

  • a first-time buyer who needs advice on where best to spend your precious budget
  • an upsizer taking on a bigger home
  • or downsizer who is working out what a more concise way of living might look like.
  • perhaps you need advice on how to make colour and pattern work in your home or some other aspect of design and function

My Styling Box service is flexible to either create design schemes from scratch or I can work alongside you with a scheme you already have but just need a bit more help with. Your beautiful and useful Styling Box includes a bespoke scheme with wallpaper, paint, fabric and flooring samples along with a floorplan and a report with links to recommended products. It will look at the issues of lighting, storage, upholstery and soft furnishings. Bespoke designs for storage, upholstery and soft furnishings can also be undertaken with the Full Redesign package. The box also makes useful storage for your ongoing project paperwork too!

Styling Box examples

Here is just a selection of some bespoke projects I have worked on for clients. There have been some wonderfully quirky ones too such as converting a shed into a home office (‘shoffice’) with specially designed storage, worktops and lighting for a client’s beautiful Oxfordshire garden which you can see on the blog.

Thank you

It sometimes takes another pair of eyes to look at a project to be able to unlock a problem that you have been wrestling with. I have over 25 years experience in the interiors industry from styling front cover decorating features of interiors magazines to national newspaper features, to styling collections for some of the UK’s top interiors publishers, designers and retailers. I know where to find the bargains you have to look twice at but know too when only luxury will do.

Thank you so much for reading this post. If you would like to discuss the Styling Box affordable interior design service further please either contact me or perhaps set the ball rolling by purchasing your affordable Styling Box design package now. You can also follow regular Styling Box inspiration on Instagram and subscribe to the blog.

I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully working with you soon.

With best wishes,
