An update from Scotland
So the Easter break, Royal Wedding and numerous bank holidays are finally over and everyone is back to a normal working week just in time for the sun to shine on Scotland.
Isn’t it remarkable how this new fresh spring light can start to show up various flaws and imperfections in the home, great news for us Interior Designers. We are on hand to suggest that essential tweak or indeed a major refurbishment.
So far this year we have seen some incredible projects arise in Scotland from a converted barn project, to fashionable modern penthouses and country estates. Our work has taken us all over the Scottish countryside from Perthshire and North Berwick to the Highlands. We are just about to embark on an installation for a client at their new London apartment. This is when you appreciate how crucial it is to have a good working relationship with your suppliers so that all can be organised and implemented from your desk. Let’s hope that it all goes to plan!
We have also recently embarked on a ‘blind’ presentation, having not yet met the clients. The mood boards are all wrapped up and on their way to Dubai, shame we couldn’t present to the client in person. Looking further towards the summer, Jeffreys Interiors are proud to be hosting a private evening with one of the UK’s creative forces, William Yeoward. He will be delighting us with his new Polperro collection of woven stripes, wallpapers and prints and no doubt a few humorous anecdotes after the champagne reception.
We are also looking forward to the 16th May when the winners will be revealed for the KKB Review Industry Awards 2011. Jeffreys Interiors have worked alongside Porcelanosa to create a sleek, clutter free Kitchen in a Listed Georgian Townhouse in Edinburgh. This project has been shortlisted for the Designer Award for Kitchens with project cost up to £25K, fingers crossed.
So on a final note, all seems to be hectic here in Scotland despite the economical environment we are currently living in. Fortunately most clients are staying put and adapting their homes to suit their lifestyle rather than moving elsewhere. It’s refreshing to speak to clients today who want to add some personality to their home and be more open to creativity. The days of keeping things neutral and designing a space specifically to appeal to prospective buyers seems to be long gone.
