I’m Claire, an interior designer specialising in residential interior design. I am based in Canterbury, Kent and work across Kent, South London and Surrey. I am also an assistant interiors stylist and award nominated interior design blogger.

In short – I love all things interiors!

My work has been featured in both print and online media and I have been fortunate enough to assist on interiors shoots for Ideal Home and Country Homes and Interiors magazine. I love nothing more than creating inspiring, welcoming and comforting homes for my clients.

“Works with care and consideration “

Claire has created an inspiring vision for our open living/dining room that has surpassed our expectations…she was supportive and non-judgemental given my lack of confidence in what to do with our room…I 100% recommend Claire and would definitely call on her again in the future.

“Highly recommend!”

Claire visited just the once to understand my style perfectly. She used my own things but suggested a few choice pieces, a lamp, the rug, the cushions for example within my budget. Wow! The overall look took my open plan lounge to the next level. Claire has a wonderful eye for colour co-ordination. She helped me choose curtains and once made, put them up beautifully. Claire is amazing value!
