We paid a visit to House of Design recently and spoke to Jane Picking, the interior designer and creative genius behind the incredible luxury showroom.
What should interior design be about?
The individual. The individual should always be allowed to have their own personality, likes and dislikes, although you can bring people out of their comfort zone. Customers can only like what they see, so our job is to make them see everything they like. Interior design sometimes scares people away – they think it will cost a fortune and take over their house – but it should be a really enjoyable experience.
How do you start the process?
When people come to House of Design, we love for them to feel relaxed and just take the showroom in. We will always have a free consultation with the client, to discover their likes and dislikes, and typically go through a brochure showing them our most recent case studies.
With plans to open a shop above the House of Design showroom in the near future, customers will be able to choose products in person and receive unique-personalised advice from the dedicated professional interior design team.
