Hello and welcome to my Houzz page! I’m a Buckinghamshire-based professional furniture painter and upcycler, and I pride myself on providing my clients with beautiful, bespoke painted furniture. Over the past 10+ years, having creativity and sustainability at the heart of my business, I have upcycled hundreds of furniture pieces which have found their new homes all over the UK. I’m passionate about furniture painting, interior design, all things vintage, colour, as well as incorporating various art mediums in my designs, such as papers, stencils, decoupage, gilding waxes, gold leafs etc. I love transforming old, dated furniture into desirable and elegant pieces and giving them a new lease of life. Re-love and re-use is my motto, and my aim is to make people appreciate the value of good-quality, well-made old furniture instead of throwing them away and filling up the landfills!
Creativity and crafting were always a big part in my life ever since I was a little girl. Apart from spending a serious chunk of my childhood at my parents' architectural practice helping around with various jobs (and without realising it, gaining priceless work experience in design!), I also remember myself always sketching scenes from everyday life in this small sketchpad using charcoal or coloured pencils, making handmade bunting out of sea shells, or hand-sewing all my dolls' clothes myself. Academically, however, I had chosen to start out my career path in quite a different way. I first studied History & Politics at university and then went on to receive an MA in International Relations. After having worked at the UN initially and then at various academic establishments in the area of communications and events, I finally felt ready to turn a new page in my life and turn my hobby and passion into a business! Though I would upcycle furniture from earlier on, I established the business in 2014 after becoming a mum and after we moved out of London, where flexibility and working around my son's life schedule became paramount.
I get a buzz out of finding and working with old (or outdated), vintage pieces of furniture, breathing new life back into them and then finding them a new home. A large amount of my work is, however, client commissions! I would love to hear from you if you have a piece of furniture that is crying out for a new look and lease of life.
