Spending so much time at home has inevitably altered our perception of our home, so it’s unsurprising so many of us have invested time and money in updating our homes.

Good design improves wellbeing, providing us with a sanctuary to escape the demands of modern life.

Read on to discover the interior improvements I’ve carried out in my own home during lockdown.


Spending so much time at home with the family can lead to more mess, so I’ve invested in organisational tools to turn chaos into calm.

Decluttering and tidying not only promotes emotional wellbeing, but leads to more harmonious family life.

By encouraging everyone to take responsibility for their belongings and commit to keeping the home tidy, it becomes much easier to maintain stylish and streamlined spaces.

Storage solutions

As an interior designer, I specialise in stylish storage solutions that maintain structure and organisation.

During lockdown, I invested in a racking system to help me organise my hallway more efficiently.

As a longer-term project, I’m working on plans to design a boot room to accommodate footwear and outdoor clothing. Presently a neglected downstairs study, this project will see the area converted into a stylish, functional space.

Small touches

Investing in small, indulgent touches can give your home an instant injection of opulence – filling reed diffusers, investing in new candles and displaying favourite perfumes has added that touch of luxury to my home during lockdown.

If lockdown has caused you to crave more significant changes to your home, our professional interior design services are available to private clients across Yorkshire, Cheshire and beyond.
