'My husband and I purchased our forever home, settling in East London after several years living all over Europe. Once we decided to permanently lay down roots, we made the decision to invest in a designer to assist us in creating our sanctuary. BEST decision we have ever made.
We have collected art throughout our travels and have acquired many family heirlooms, all of which we wanted incorporated within our home, albeit in a contemporary way.
I interviewed several designers and kept walking away uninspired. No one seemingly understood what vibe I was going for in our home. This is where Fleur arrived for us, like a breath of fresh air.
From the first call with Fleur, there was an instant chemistry. Fleur was able to focus in on the most important aspects of what we wanted, which was to “start with the art” and curate our real-life stuff into a beautifully crafted home.
My husband and I had found a piece of fabric at the design centre that we loved, and I gave that small snippet to Fleur. Between that small scrap of fabric and our art collection, she created a vision board for each room that was our dream brought to life. She connected to a vision that was just a small whisper of a thought in my mind and curated a home that has gone beyond what I could have imagined.
On a technical side, Fleur was brilliant at maintaining options to keep within our budget and sourcing out unique and speciality touches that made our home bespoke. Fleur’s eye for design, rhythm, patterns, and colour is truly a gift. How she layers a room to provide warmth and depth is breath taking.
Everyone that comes into our home comments on how much it reflects who we are as a couple as well as how charming, cosy, and inviting it is. None of this would have been created if we had not engaged Fleur’s services'
This project was such a joy. An immediate connection and shared vision meant this was a complete pleasure to complete.
