Founder Chantel Elshout has been in the interiors business for over 20 years.
After working as a stylist for the likes of Homes & Gardens, Elle Decoration, Sunday Times Home and Sunday Times Style, she trained in interior and spatial design, before embarking on a career in kitchen design, which saw her highly commended for Kitchen Designer of the Year by Designer Magazine – not once but twice.
Requests to design bathrooms and living rooms quickly followed. Recently she won two awards for Bathroom Designer of the Year 2022 at the prestigious KBB Review Awards. Now Chantel, alongside her team, works on projects that cover the whole home, creating beautiful, memorable interiors.
"From our first meeting with Chantel it was clear that she had listened to our brief and respected our budget and she understood that we were looking for a kitchen that would look smart and stand the test of time, both in design and durability. Chantel gave us access to a range of kitchens that we would never otherwise have found and although we were working with a small space, her design ensured that we were able to include everything on our wish list, and also achieve an amount of storage space that we had not thought was possible. The kitchen was delivered on time, fitted as planned and looks fantastic."
