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...

FANTASTIC HOUSE WHISPERER THAT WILL HELP MAKE YOUR HOUSE A HOME TO ENJOY Deborah has helped us with a number of projects over the years from complete renovations of our kitchen/dining/living area, help with resizing curtains and recovering sofas after a house move and was a particular help to my elderly Mother. Following the passing of my Father my Mother downsized to a smaller flat. Deborah patiently helped my Mother choose fabrics, designs for her new flat, what of her existing furniture would work best in her new flat and even helped her hang her pictures. It made moving my Mother a joyful, rather than a stressful, event for everyone! Deborah is excellent and importantly will work with your budget and ideas. Her advice has been invaluable and I would thoroughly recommend. Deborah is easy to work with and if you are short on time she will provide suggested suppliers/colours/fabrics etc to suit your ideas.

REALLY INSPIRING AND GOOD FUN! Deborah helped me transform two tired living spaces with a really imaginative use of colour. I'd never have been confident enough on my own to go with the boldness of what she proposed - but she judged it perfectly! She was incredibly collaborative - gently persuasive where she needed to be - and really sensitive. She was also really good on sourcing bits of furniture and fabrics. She made the whole project a real pleasure .

DESIGN TO PERFECTION We love Deborah, and especially her work. Always precise and on the mark. After a short brief her plans and my ideas are put into action. Her detail to design and finish are never in question, and after using her numerous time to layout our home and our office have always worked. 

A CALM & CREATIVE INTERIOR DESIGN EXPERT 5 STARS Deborah was a calming and creative genius who helped me design my whole house. When I said I wanted 70’s disco tiles she found them. when i said I wanted monkey wall paper she found them. When i said I wanted a classical painting on a blind she arranged it. Nothing was too much trouble. She was so reasonably priced too. The best money I spent. I was nervous about using a designer on top of a builder and an architect but she was the glue that kept us all together. We have recommended her to other friends who have all had the same experience. I can’t recommend her enough. 

House Whispering in N19

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. 

House Whispering begins in Hackney

House Whispering began with a call from a retired school teacher, living  in a small, sadly neglected  flat.

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 he 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, which dominated the room.


It was getting him down and he reached out for help from Deborah.
