About

Hello and welcome to Côte de Folk, a bespoke interiors consultancy with a difference. I’m so glad you’ve found your way here because I am passionate about helping people live in the best spaces for them. I truly believe that our homes are a reflection of ourselves. A beautiful home is not just a frivolous desire to acquire nice things, it is about our engagement with the things that make us happy, calm and productive. For me, home is the space I am truly myself. It has to be many things to me, which means it has to be functional, but this doesn’t mean it can’t be beautiful as well. In fact, I think surrounding yourself with beauty, whatever that means to you, is an act of self-care that can change your life.

After a successful 22 year career in fashion I took the leap to change my career completely. After designing my own home and refurbishing two more of my own properties my raw passion for interiors was ignited. With this unconventional approach to the industry my desire is to help create beautiful, unique spaces that express my client’s personality.

I believe interior design can be for all, not just a select few, and the varied services I offer reflect that. I work very much in collaboration with the home owner in a fluid and responsive way, listening firstly to how you want to use the space and what you believe to be precious and beautiful, I also take cues from the property itself. Thus creating authentic, unexpected, meaningful design. I look to bespoke items, antiques and vintage finds for sustainability and to make each and every project truly unique.

They say that home is where the heart is and I look forward to helping you unlock the heart in your home.
