Could your home benefit from some new ideas and a little love? Design Penguin's faff-free and creative approach to interior design will help you transform your home. We specialise in adapting period properties for 21st century life, preserving and enhancing their beautiful features and while making the space work better and adding a little modern luxury.
After a free no-obligation consultation at your home, we’ll recommend a design package to suit your brief.
Designer for a Day: An ideal service for clients looking for a space refresh without construction work. We spend six hours with you in your home to resolve issues with space planning, layout, choosing the right materials, furnishings, lighting or accessories. After our session we send you a written report, so you can implement the changes in your own time.
Design and Sourcing: A full design package with scale and technical drawings, sketches, finish and fabric samples and images of all the furnishings, accessories, fixtures and lighting to make your space beautiful. Each design is fully costed and when approved we source all the items at trade pricing with the discounts passed on to you; these can go a long way towards offsetting our fees. If construction is required we do a full hand over to your builder.
Full Design, Sourcing and Project Management: In addition to the Design and Sourcing service, we project manage the works and installations, bringing in specialist tradespeople and arranging for any made to measure items such as curtains, blinds or fitted storage to be ordered.
Nicola aka Design Penguin listened to our vague ideas about what we wanted for our nursery crystallised them and came back with beautiful drawings and a wonderful colour pallette, perfect for a nursery, but non specific enough to take the room through to another use when and if the baby moves to a bigger room. We ran out of time and budget for some of the built in cupboard work, including a built in changing station, but that was our call and no reflection on Nicola - they were great ideas, with detailed designs and samples provided.
