WE CANNOT CONTROL THE WIND
but we can direct the sails
Navigating a sea change
Change is good, and can be exciting as well as challenging at any time in our lives. Reaching a new chapter, as we all do from time to time, can be a result of planned or unexpected changes such as:
Relocating with a new job
Coming to terms with a newly-emptied nest
Bereavement or Divorce
Down-sizing later in life
I can offer my creative skills, intuition and experience to achieve functional solutions through listening and problem-solving.
You may know someone who is going through the process of downsizing from their beloved family home into a more manageable place, and is tackling the difficult balance of sifting and prioritising precious possessions according to practicality and space.
When life effects big changes, it’s hard to step outside your comfort zone, and it’s good to have an objective companion to help you through that change.
Let me be your co-pilot and we can navigate the changing weather together…
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
From the moment I met Deborah, I knew she was not your common or garden interior designer. By asking me questions about how I lived and by skilfully identifying the objects in my tired, neglected flat which were meaningful to me, she crafted a plan and held my hand along the journey of a difficult refurb. From troublesome neighbours to budgetary constraints, she whispered me a brand new luxury pad which is a truly beautiful space and now my sanctuary. She has turned my life around. Little by little, whisper by whisper, I got the home I so needed. And her skill is such, I never felt anything was being imposed on me. In fact, I think, as she held my hand she gave me confidence to make bold choices and satisfying decisions.
All in all, I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.
One Bedroom Flat, E8
House Whispering in Hackney
Mr G was a retired school teacher, living in an East London flat, which had become sadly neglected.
He loved the position and size of his flat, and he treasured his collection of books, but he was struggling with storage and wondered how he could cope with improving the flat and getting things organised.
Added to that there had been a leak in the roof, and his ceiling was badly damaged.
Because of the narrow front door and hallway, it had not been possible to get any comfortable furniture into the flat, and now that Mr G was getting older, he found it much harder to sit on a blanket-covered block of foam or a garden chair. His fireplace, once an open chimney, had been sealed off unsympathetically with an ill-fitting white board, and seemed to dominate the room.
It was all rather depressing, so one day he decided that he should ask for help, and phoned Deborah.
