Live, Sleep and Work Better. Finally Feel At Home.

Home Interiors Designed To Help You Thrive.

Naturally Beautiful, Healthy, Happy Homes

Your home environment is vital to support your happiness, health and wellbeing.

Have you fallen out of love with your home?

❎   Disturbed sleep has a knock-on effect for the rest of your day. Especially if you’re also suffering from low mood or malingering health issues. 

❎   Working from home but struggling to be productive. Whether it’s distraction or discomfort, if something’s adversely impacting your ability to do your job properly, then it’ll soon become an issue.

❎   Frustrated at the lack of flow through your spaces and unsure how to maximise them. You might even be embarrassed by your home – surrounded by clutter and/or endless awkward storage.

❎   Overwhelmed with too much (or lack of) inspiration, or struggling to decide which colour is “right” for you or your space.

❎   Something just doesn’t feel right with the energy in your space. You can’t quite put your finger on it, but it’s there, preventing you from feeling “at home”.

❎   Reoccurring unwanted behaviours at home can lead to family rows and strained relationships. No-one should dread walking through the door each day.

❎   Fed up wasting time and money trying to fix the issues yourself and worried that, ultimately, you’ll have to move house to get what you want.  

    If any of this seems familiar, then chances are you could do with my help. Email me NOW for a happier and healthier home.

All About You

    Holistic interior design blends science, sustainability, biophilic design, psychology and intuition to ensure the focus is on you and your family‘s personalities, values and your “why”.

    It’s not about my style, trends, or creating a show home, but about digging deeper into what makes you tick. This creates meaningful, purposeful spaces. Somewhere you feel truly at home. 

Sustainability

    Sustainable interiors improve homeowners’ health and wellbeingA multi-sensory approach ensures that your comfort is as important as how your home looks.

    If you love vintage, antique or upcycled pieces, we’ll be a great fit! And any new pieces (whether off-the-shelf or bespoke) will be sourced as ethically, naturally and sustainably as possible. 

    Spaces as elegant, beautiful and unique as they are healthy and ethical, giving you the all-round feel-good factor.

What people are saying about me...

"She’s taken real care to get to know me...and translate that into what I need"

    “Amy’s really approachable and enthusiastic. It’s a big project so I wanted someone knowledgeable with creative vision and a great eye for detail that I could trust with it. She’s taken real care to get to know me, listen to what I want and translate that into what I need.

    I asked her to show me the dream and she hasn’t disappointed – she’s had some really innovative ideas, suggesting design elements I’d never even thought about. She talks me through each step of the design process, explaining the reasoning behind her concepts.

    She’s also encouraged me to use eco-friendly and sustainable materials. I didn’t realise that natural paint was available in so many colours! 

    As well as designing some bespoke furniture, Amy is sourcing a mixture of contemporary, modern vintage and upcycled furniture, original artworks, and locally crafted pieces.

    She’s also taking care of all the sourcing and procurement and liaising with the rest of the project team, saving me the hassle.”

"It looked like the best version of our home!"

    “Amy made some great suggestions to change the layout in several rooms to improve the flow. She then styled it, mainly using our own possessions, although did source some additional pieces which we still use and enjoy.

    Her arrangement and styling of the different spaces greatly improved our enjoyment of our space. It looked like the best version of our home!

    We were delighted with the results that Amy’s enthusiasm, skill, imagination and flair made to our home. She was very professional, reliable and inspired confidence throughout. We would highly recommend her.”

"A real and positive impact on my quality of life"

    “It has been a pleasure to see how my home has been improved with the skills and in-depth knowledge that Amy has bought to my project.

    Not just in the flow and logical ease of use but the sense of wellness and happiness in a space that I never knew was possible.

    A real and positive impact on my quality of life that delivers every day. I would not hesitate to recommend Amy to anyone.”

    Nothing will change if you don’t take action. It’s easy to put things off, wait until the right time, try a different colour or buy yet more storage.  BUT, the sooner you start, the quicker you’ll swap family frustration for home transformation and get the results you deserve.

Working with Me

    There’s no one-size-fits-all generic “solution”. Each home is as complex and unique as the individuals they serve.

    Therefore, before we find out if we’re a good fit, we all need to uncover the challenges you’re facing. 

    We’ll dig deeper, past the superficial, to uncover how you use your home and what’s REALLY important to you.

   We will then book you in for your custom 2-hour on-site Healthy Home Design Audit.

    This will allow me to assess the space and see the issues in context to realise the extent and scope of your home’s full potential.
