I wanted to let you know a little bit about my Feather & Nest decorating consult approach and, ultimately, how I like to work with people in creating their own cosy, lovely nests.
Homemaking is my passion. I think of myself as a home maker. A featherer and a nester. I love making my home feel cosy and comfortable and a space that my family and friends love to spend time in. I am a collector of old things – reloved treasures and I spread these throughout my home to use and enjoy and to help tell the story of my home and the people who live in it.
I like to bring this home making approach to all of the consultations I have with others and so, I tend to think of myself as a friend who you’d invite over for a cup of tea, chat and brain-picking session about your nest rather than an expert in interior design. I honestly think that it’s the sharing of creative ideas, the tooing and froing of thoughts and suggestions and the using of pre-loved treasures that helps people turn their houses into cosy, unique and lovely to live in nests.
As part of the revamping stage I aim to help you, during consultations, turn your space into a cosy nest that tells the story of the people who live there. Everyone has things that they love to surround themselves with. I call these feathering treasures. It might be a lovely stack of well-read books or a collection of old crockery. It could be a vase of fresh flowers or a bed covered in a crocheted hand-me-down blanket. It might be a group of pretty scented candles or their child’s hand-made artwork. These personal and often times, reloved items, help weave the tapestry that becomes this lovely, cosy, unique-to-you space.
And, it may not be your personal house that you’re needing help with. It could be a shop, a rental property, a shed, a studio, a shipping container, a caravan or even a tent! Every space that you own can be turned into a space that you just don’t want to leave.
You might want help with styling or storage ideas, decorating with colour or fabrics, or simply some help with de-cluttering and rearranging the treasures that you already have in a new way. The list is pretty much endless! It’s fun and challenging and so rewarding for me to be able to help you create a nest that becomes that little haven away from the stresses and busyness of life. It’s what everyone needs. And I’d love to help you achieve that.
You can email me any time to organise a consult and to get started with turning your space into a nest that you absolutely love. I can’t wait to help you get started!
