‘Before & After’ Holiday Home Interior Design & Styling

Alongside the professional photography service I provide to holiday homeowners, I can also offer an interior design & decoration service offering clients a helping hand if you’re feeling overwhelmed with colour combinations, decor dilemmas and design decisions?

In the first half of 2020, I’ve had great fun and thank my clients for trusting in me to completely re-design, decorate and photograph these three Devon holiday cottages in partnership with Fresh Escapes holiday rental agency.

 

The word home means many things to many people but ultimately it means an enjoyable, happy place where one can live, laugh and relax with family & friends surrounded by warmth and comfort. And so it’s very important that the design, style, decor & atmosphere are introduced into your holiday home to welcome guests with that ‘feel at home’ experience. Of course, everyone’s taste and ‘happy place’ varies but there are many human traits we all have an affinity for and enjoy. These generally revolve around exploration, sensory enjoyment and relaxation.

You Can Stand Out    

There are so many ways that you can stand proud of the crowd — from the architectural style of the property you fall in love with to the interior decor choices you make. Of course, everyone’s taste and ‘happy place’ varies but there are many human traits we all have an affinity for and enjoy. These generally revolve around exploration, sensory enjoyment and relaxation.

This is How   

So rather than breezing in and insisting on a whirl-wind of change, I prefer a subtler approach of interpreting, embellishing and encouraging you to develop and incorporate all the ideas I’ll be sharing with you — ideas I hope you’ll agree will bring enrichment to your guests holiday experience. For example, not only do I put appropriate emphasis on preserving key pieces of furnishings and existing features in certain rooms but I also hope to expand upon your individual sense of style.

Helping Hand   

If you can’t see the walls for the floor? As I mentioned above, if you need only one room or every room in your home redesigning, I can help you to see things differently and visualize a new look for your home. I can start from scratch or work around existing furniture or features that you’d prefer to keep and I will work to your budget with a practical, realistic approach.
