To create a bespoke interior for a client is an intensely personalised process. I balance the practical requirements and aesthetics of my clients whilst introducing them to the world of interiors they never knew existed, full of inspirational pieces and unexpected ways of achieving a truly unique environment for them to enjoy and live in. Such schemes are not easily put together. They are time consuming and involve a lot of creative thought, backed by my experience of 18 years working in the industry.
When designing for my clients I blur the boundaries between interiors, art and fashion. Being an artist gives me a different perspective on things and enables me to view the same objects, be it a piece of furniture or a light like art, weaving all the elements of an interior in to a couture space.
The interiors I create are not purely the result of my own imagination, detached from the real life constraints, but a collaboration between me and my clients, making the clients part of the decision making process and the end result belong to them as much as it does to me. This way I believe I achieve the best result for my clients, igniting them with inspiration and enthusiasm for their interiors.

Project 1: Contemporary kitchen
An existing client required to update the kitchen. Having done lots of work for the same client previously, it was clear that new and boundary pushing ideas would be welcomed and any unique solutions would be considered. The client liked a contemporary, no fuss design. However, a clinical and minimalism look would not be accepted, as some warmth and colour were required. I developed the design which was challenging but with Bluebell fitted furniture, it was not impossible.

Project 2: Luxurious guest suite
An existing project in Manchester was coming to an end with just one room remained untouched on the top floor. Being long but narrow, it was the most difficult room in the house to plan and furnish, with sloping roof in parts of the space and just one window. The requirement was to create a guest bedroom. It was clear from the start that treating this awkward space in the conventional way would also be the wrong way. It needed a creative approach with bold decisions and bespoke solutions. Once the design concept was agreed on with the client, Bluebell Fitted Furniture with their expertise and problem solving skills were brought in to realise the ambitious design.

Project 3: New built property
An existing client has built a property with a view to sell it as soon as it is finished. Hence the design and furnishings needed to be with a high quality and appeal to a contemporary design lovers but fitting in a restricted budget. The pieces supplied for this house would be ideally sold with it, but the client did need to like them in case they were to be re-used in the next property which would be their long term home.
