Emma comes from a family of property developers; living in 15 houses in 3 countries while growing up. A BSc in Photography was her next step on the road toward her career as an interior designer, followed by a number of years designing dental and medical practices. A move from Cheltenham to West Bridgford in Nottingham. and the purchase of a Victorian property in need of a complete refurbishment, inspired her transition from commercial to residential interior design, and a push toward a formal qualification with a Diploma in Professional Interior Design from the National Design Academy in Nottingham, along with additional courses in the use of 2D and 3D software that allow her to produce visuals that communicate the essence of a design to clients prior to implementation. 

"There is nothing more rewarding than working with a client to help them to transform a house into their dream home. People are busy, and they have their day jobs to focus on; my job is to lead my clients through a process to help them to identify what works for them and what doesn't, and to put a plan together that demonstrates how the right interior design plan will transform their houses into comfortable, beautiful homes."

" We'd never used an interior designer before, but the experience we had with CHIC certainly validated our decision to use a designer for our sitting room. Emma was assigned to us and was helpful from start to finish. Right from the initial meeting it was very collaborative, with Emma taking time to understand our requirements. Then when the final boards were presented, we loved the suggestions put forward. Overall, a friendly service that was quick to respond to any queries along the way and obviously genuinely cared about ensuring clients were happy ". Fully recommended.
