Located in Surbiton, Ann combines her role as the Interior Design Mentor for our Decorbuddi team with helping clients across London and Surrey
“It is so rewarding working with Decorbuddi clients. They are always appreciative of the efforts we go to, to ensure that their home is perfect for them – even when we push their design ideas, just a little!”
“I learned about interior style from my paternal grandmother who was way ahead of her time. She was fantastic at choosing colours for her decorating schemes and adventurous in her choices – she mixed patterns freely and was always able to produce a scheme that was very different from those of her friends and family. We were not rich and she was happy to save up for quality purchases, and she was always up to date. We were the first people in our family to have a Formica kitchen!
This life-long interest in interiors stayed with me throughout my chosen career as a leadership development consultant and executive coach, undertaking commissions for friends and family and renovating 5 properties, until I decided to set up my own interior design business, in 2009. I now combine my passions working as the Interior Design mentor for the Decorbuddi team whilst working with a wide range of residential clients in South West and Central London and Surrey. I love my work and still recognize the influence of my grandmother in the designs that I develop, in partnership with our clients.”
Ann is based in Surbiton and works with Decorbuddi clients across London and Surrey.
“I don’t generally write reviews but felt compelled to write one for Decorbuddi and Ann as they did such a stellar job on my flat. I renovated my entire flat (after 20 years!). I had no idea 1) how to use the small space well and 2) how to design the interior. Ann was, in a word, amazing. In her words, she “stretched me” (necessarily) but beautifully transformed my flat. She offered suitable options for each room in terms of furnishings and ideas for the design, was budget conscious, would pick out appropriate furniture and take care of the paperwork (and even be at the flat for the delivery if necessary) which was enormously helpful when one has limited time. She worked well with the builder and noticed small things that I never would have caught and sorted it out. I would recommend Decorbuddi and Ann without reservation.” Lisa
