‘Buying a home is an expensive process. And after budgeting for your mortgage and all the other necessary home buying fees, you then have to move in and begin furnishing your new place.
Is edging dangerously close to your overdraft the only option? Or are there really treasures to be found by raiding the local charity shops? We caught up with Katie Barker from interior designer Innermost Interiors , in Carlisle, who says there are some brilliant ways to furnish your new home on a smaller budget.‘ (July, 2021)
“We contacted Katie for a virtual interior design service (due to the current situation) for our living room. We sent photos, measurements, and a budget to work with and to be honest — you wouldn’t know she hasn’t set foot in the room or met us in person! Her design was something we hadn’t considered but fell in love with straight away! We can’t wait to transform our living room. We highly recommend Katie to anyone looking for an interior designer that’s professional, easy to get on with, and can deliver the wow factor to any room!” (14/01/21)
“I’m so impressed with the redecoration pack that Katie has provided me for my living room! She carried out all the work remotely, very quickly and produced an easy to understand design pack that I could just click on the link and order all the things I need, so easy, I couldn’t recommend her more and can’t wait to see the results!” (05/02/21)
“Katie helped me with the interior design of my living room. She was fantastic to work with and really took on board the style I wanted to achieve. Once we had our first meeting, she followed it up with a very detailed design and it was clear I had enlisted a professional who knew her stuff. She was able to work within my budget and choose some fantastic pieces of furniture I would never have envisaged myself. She listed each item separately with prices, photos, delivery times and also links to where I could purchase them. She also gave me alternative options too. There was regular feedback and communication through email. If I changed an item, she would resend the design/visuals with those items in place. The final design was lovely and cannot wait to get started once COVID-19 allows. I would definitely recommend Katie at Innermost Interiors and will certainly be using her again in the future.“ (09/11/20)
