Neston Interior Designer Brings Fresh Look to Local Property

Published: 23rd September 2012 09:33

Neston based interior designer Karen Birney of Cherry Blossom Interiors has recently completed a hugely successful project for a local client.

Karen explains: "I first had contact with the client, Mrs James, through Facebook after she clicked on our details on AboutMyArea/CH64.

"Mrs James wanted her lounge to be updated into a cosy, relaxing space for the evenings, which would become a no-children zone.

"When I arrived at her home in Neston I found a gorgeous period property with beams and sash windows. We sat down with a coffee and discussed how the room needed to function, colour likes and dislikes, which items of furniture were staying and style preferences.

"Working with all of the information I had received I started putting together a 3D design of how Mrs James's room would look and a shopping list of items required. When I presented these designs to Mrs James she wanted me to take over the whole project management of the lounge. She was about to go on holiday and wished to have the lounge completed in time for her return.

"Mrs James had chosen her own tradespeople to complete the decorating and building work needed, I liaised with the tradespeople throughout the project explaining what had been chosen and when jobs needed to be completed by so that the lounge was completed within schedule.

"I thoroughly enjoyed doing this Lounge for the James family and I thought it was an amazing transformation - I would be happy to have a lounge like that myself!"

The client, Mrs James, was delighted with the outcome.  She left a testimonial for Cherry Blossom Interiors on AboutMyArea, stating: "When I first heard of Cherry Blossom Interiors I have to say that I thought the whole concept was simply a lot of 'money for old rope'. How wrong was I? We had a problem living room with odd sized walls and ill placed radiators and no matter what I did, I couldn't see a way of improving the room. I thought my hubby would tell me to go jump when I suggested getting an interior professional involved but he actually thought it a good idea.

"You could tell when you met Karen that she just has an eye for this kind of job. She knew which direction the window in the room faced and therefore what colours would suit etc. In fact she gave me so much confidence that I decided to hand her the project lock, stock and barrel. I told her what colour our new sofas were going to be and what pieces of furniture had to stay. I gave her a budget for the entire job and told her that if she could make a profit from the budget whilst delivering me a new living room that I was happy.

"After being away from home for 3 weeks, I arrived home not only to our new kitchen (which was being done at the same time) but to an unbeleivable transformation in our lounge. The room was unrecognisable, like something out of Cheshire Life magazine and there wasn't a thing about the room we wanted to change.

"I imagine with Karen and Cherry Blossom Interiors help that the home staging they offer could not only sell a home in double quick time but increase the amount it sells for too. I will certainly be having her back for future projects as she took the hassle out of redecorating / renovating."
