About

How we work:

  • We offer a personal, flexible and individual service whether you have a large or small project. 
  • Every project is unique and should be treated according to a client's individual requirements.
     
  • We aim to deliver high quality projects for reasonable fees and really do believe that even the smallest details matter.
     
  • We can style properties for private owners, small property developers and intermediaries (such as Executors, Accountants, Solicitors and Estate Agents) working on a client’s behalf, to maximise the value of a property for sale.  
     
  • Some clients just wish to stay in their current home but need a helping hand to refresh their decor and bring it up to date, or perhaps need to adapt it due to changes in their family circumstances.  Whatever the reason we are happy to assist, no matter how small the project. 
     
  • Being based near Clerkenwell and Shoreditch there is plenty of local talent and we try to utilise and support local tradespeople and designers where possible.  This also enables us to minimise our carbon footprint.

About Michele Haynes

  • For the past 18 years I have lived in the Barbican with my husband and two teenage children.
  • I have always had a passion for interiors, even whilst studying marketing.  I found I just couldn’t resist attending 100% design and a myriad of other interior shows, years before I started planning to work in this field.
  • I studied and worked in marketing for Habitat and other companies and have a strong eye for presentation.
     
  • Attended KLC School of Design in Chelsea and know that good design and styling also requires good spatial planning and attention to detail.  But more importantly any designed space must always address a client’s practical needs first and only by incorporating those practical issues along with creativity, can you produce long term beautiful interiors for clients.
     
  • Whilst I am detail orientated, organised and good at project managing, every job is different and I really want to provide a personal and individual touch.
  • I am genuinely passionate about creating beautiful contemporary homes.
     
  • The beauty of designing projects for clients, is that there is always variety (as no two days are ever the same).  You are always looking for and meeting new suppliers and designers and thinking creatively.  Plus there is usually a degree of problem solving thrown in, which certainly keeps me on my toes.
  • As Sir Terence Conran said many years ago "Form Follows Function" and I try to bear that in mind on my projects.
  • Please don't hesitate to give me a call if you have any queries or wish to discuss a project and I will be delighted to try to assist you.      

  • Best wishes and I look forward to hearing from you.
