What could an interior stylist do for your home?

The major misconception around using a design service at home is that it’s just for big houses and big budgets, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

‘I had a client who was buying her first home and all her friends said there was no way she could afford John Lewis throughout, but we were able to design the whole house on a really tight budget,’ says John Lewis Partner & Home Design Stylist, Sally Downey. Another of Sally’s clients was downsizing to a retirement apartment. ‘We edited her existing furniture, keeping the important things, and we were then able to fill in the gaps with smaller-scale pieces'. ‘The small scale projects are great fun and a real challenge. I loved designing a teenager's bedroom with a room divider, sleeping area and desk to make it like a little apartment.’
