Interior Design…. I live it, breathe it, love it and being able to help clients realise their dream home is an absolute privilege. Making a difference on so many levels, both practically and emotionally and being trusted with their interior issues and lifestyles is very humbling. Creating familiarity and contentment is key and the greatest pleasure of all is to witness clients falling in love with their homes all over again. Tears of happiness are always rewarding and special.

My aim is not only to design, but also to create a sanctuary of cosiness where clients can take pleasure from a gentle, soothing environment and feel a sense of well-being and warmth where they can enjoy the simple pleasures in life.

Mixing old with new is my signature style, I prefer tarnished metals over shiny new chrome, I don’t like everything to necessarily be too perfect, the odd chip or mark just adds to the story. I frequently trawl vintage stores for honest, well-built pieces which have a quality about them and essentially add character to a room. They can be updated if required with paint and antiquing wax and often don’t cost a fortune.

Enhancing original features, adding texture and harmonious shades of colour, plus warm lighting, gives soul to a home. Every room, no matter how small, should exude character and interest and I take pride in my attention to detail.

“Josephine, you’ve really done yourself proud, we both absolutely love what you’ve achieved and we wouldn’t change a thing! I’m so excited, it’s functional, beautiful, fits perfectly, such stunning colours and I’m absolutely over the moon! We’d have never got the house done if it wasn’t for you. A thousand thanks for all your inspired help and your efficiency and enthusiasm. I’m falling in love with the house all over again! Top marks Mrs Burlingham!! Thank you so much!”
