Could your home benefit from some new ideas and a little love? I'm a friendly, creative interior designer with a fresh affordable approach to home improvements. I'll help you design a home that works for you, making the most of your favourite things, whether you have a country home, a suburban semi or a town pad.

Design services are pick and mix to work for your project. You may need some simple layout or colour advice to improve how you use a room. Or perhaps you’re about to start a knocking walls down, building an extension or need a whole new kitchen or bathroom. You may want me to do the design work only and then you'll sort out the rest, or you may want someone to run your entire project for you. After an initial chat on the phone, we’ll arrange a free interior design consultation in your home so we can work out the scope of services together, and then I'll give you a simple quote. No smoke and mirrors, just clear service in black and white.

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.

Really great. Nicola took my brief to create a restful, cool looking bedroom and she delivered that. Really great use of colour and recommendations for furniture and artwork. Brilliant, I would recommend design penguin for any interior design work.

Design Penguin Q&A

Design Penguin Q&A

What’s your interior design process?

First of all I spend a good couple of hours with my client, and ask lots of questions about their style, what is to stay, what is to go, what their hopes and dreams are for the space and how they use it. I measure every milimetre of the rooms so I can understand them and what their potential is. I show the client images from magazines, the web, catalogues, colour charts, samples of fabrics and wallpapers and ask them to tell me what they like, what they don't, and why. This helps me to have a 'yes' image and a 'no' image in my mind when designing and selecting items. After a couple of weeks my clients can expect a check in meeting where I'll show them initial layouts, concepts, drawings and samples. Their feedback at this stage helps me to complete the designs with a high probability that they will hit the mark.

Which interior design styles can you cater for?

I work with my client's style and extend it, show them new finishes and furnishings they may not have considered before. Its not my home, its theirs. It should be their style.

What do you love most about your job?

Happy clients, when I show them the designs or the end result. And looking at beautiful things all day.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I wanted to do something I love, something tangible. And help every day people to have a better home. Interior design doesn't have to be for the rich and famous, those with a country pile or penthouse. Everyone's home can benefit from fresh eyes and a little love.

Why should our clients choose you?

Because I can help them make the most of their home.
