Affordable design advice for your home

There is so much wonderful interior design choice and whilst endless possibilities are exciting, it can also be a bit confusing. I can help guide you through various styles and colours to find a decorating scheme that transforms your space into something really special.

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. I will come up with a bespoke design scheme for you and collate the *samples together in a beautiful Styling Box.

Your design will look at issues of storage, lighting, upholstery, and soft furnishings. The Styling Box also makes useful storage for your ongoing project paperwork too!

Testimonials – for Styling Box interior styling

“I couldn’t recommend Charis highly enough! It’s not just her fabulous eye for intereriors and wealth of knowledge, but also her ability to listen to you and create something that really works for YOU. She created a bedroom design for me that I could never have done ony own. ” Wook – Brighton

“I absolutely love both options you have given me. I really have a very good idea how my kitchen might look, and I am delighted I have a decision on the floor, paint colours and lighting. I love how you’ve chosen some great neutral colours for the paint and units, and added colour with the accessories. I know this won’t be the last time we work together, and am already thinking about redoing my bathroom when I have the kitchen done (and I think a little update to our sitting room too).” Caroline – Hampshire

I was absolutely delighted with the styling box that Charis produced for my teenage daughters bedroom. There are way too many options available and after spending some months looking,  I was feeling completely confused about which way to go with it.  And then Charis came to the rescue!   The Styling Box contained a number of options for the walls, floor, furniture and lighting.  The most ingenious thing about the box is that it gives a number of different price points for each element but whatever you choose, the items all go with each other giving you lots of flexibility.  It has now turned from a complete headache to a really exciting project and I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Charis to anyone who wants some fantastic creative and practical input with any scheme.  She has a wonderful eye.” Nina, Bucklebury, Berkshire.

I am happy to recommend Charis to anyone wanting an experienced home interior stylist but not paying outrageous fees. Having just moved into my house, I realised that I needed help to redecorate all of the downstairs including hallway, living room and kitchen. After our first meeting, Charis gave me a really useful set of colour schemes, furniture styles and samples of carpets and curtains. I used her decorator and gradually bought all the other furnishing items included in her scheme. Charis’ kind and thoughtful manner made the whole experience really easy, rewarding and fun. I never felt any lack of control and appreciated her inclusion of very sensibly priced elements.” Chris, Berkshire

“I would not hesitate to recommend Charis as an interior design specialist, whether you have one small room to decorate or an entire house. Charis really listened to what I wanted and took time and energy to plan how best to use colour and texture to make this area look beautiful and flow nicely. I loved all of the ideas that she suggested. What was really useful was that she gave different options as regards budget and colour, and the flooring samples, paint colours and wallpaper swatches really helped. The colours she gave all worked together beautifully however they were arranged. I went from feeling overwhelmed with the project to feeling excited to see it all take shape. Charis did the hard work and I benefitted from her experience and taste.” Lorna, Berkshire.

“Charis created a haven for me at the end of my garden which is perfect to both work and reflect from surrounded by greenery – inside and out. She is a creative and resourceful designer with impeccable style. She demonstrated this style in many ways on this project: by taking the time to really understand me and the type of room I wanted, by coming up with fabulous ideas, by making recommendations assertively without being pushy, by being really professional, organised and communicative, by giving me options at different price points and, most importantly, by being so encouraging and inspiring.

So much about the finished space delights me: the bright and inviting colours, the practical yet cosy layout, the masses of storage space, the great lighting and the many special finishing touches such as pretty box files, sumptuous cushions and matting.     Charis was such a pleasure to work with, making everything seem so easy and stress free – from where I was sitting. I highly recommend Charis to take on any interiors project. big or small, and wouldn’t hesitate to engage her again.” Rachel, Oxfordshire.
