The House Doctor
12 Reviews
Simply put a “House Doctor” is a degree qualified individual, usually from a strategic design or real estate/property background, with a certain blend of skill, diplomacy and knowledge of which, when applied will significantly improve and transform a home into a profitable and pleasing asset. The House Doctor is the science behind good property presentation, functionality and style.

As a degree qualified Interior Designer, and practicing House Doctor, working with me not only guarantees you a stunning visual result, your home will function with ease and thus add value to your most valuable assets, your health and your home.

“Next to your health your property is your biggest asset, it stands to reason that investing in your home from bones to beauty in a similar vein is a necessity not a luxury”

My pragmatic style is to peruse the aesthetic efficacy in every project –
the result has to be a visual feast but always functional and cost effective; I
believe that enriching my understanding of the past as well as the present
relationship between client and home is the key to providing a richer
vocabulary in the future. Whilst I have an active interest in current
Global trends, I am not interested in following a trend in the name of fashion, each space and client is unique. I have a deep respect for the past masters and truly believe
that great design is functional, timeless and a true reflection of individual
style and character. There is no cookie cutter approach to my work and
often rules are there to be broken! With Knowledge and guiding principles
any functional problem can be solved simply and elegantly – always resulting
in timeless honesty.
