ABOUT ME AND MY WORK
Your Local Interior Designer - Committed to Transforming your Home
I have been designing and renovating houses for more than 25 years. I have a special interest in character properties and am committed to retaining the history and character of a property while updating it for today's family living.
I can offer a full interior design and project management service, or am happy to consult on a more informal basis if you just want a bit of expert advice to help you create your perfect home.
SPATIAL PLANNING & PRE-CONSTRUCTION CONSULTATION
A lot of people underestimate the importance of well thought out spatial planning and the impact it can have on their finished space. By consulting with me before a build or renovation, I will be able to help you plan your rooms to ensure the best possible use of space.
LIGHTING DESIGN CONSULTATION
Whether a complete lighting design for your new build or renovation, or just some help updating existing lights, I can help you choose the best options for your space.
Whether an all new home, a major renovation or you just feel like a change, I can help you choose the interior and exterior colour combinations that suit you and your lifestyle.
FURNITURE AND FITTINGS
Searching for the perfect furnishings and fittings for clients is one of my favourite things. Antique or modern, whatever the budget, I can search out items to complement your taste and lifestyle.
What My Clients Have to Say
Harriet Di Maio is an exceptionally talented and knowledgeable designer. She is an astute listener and an expert researcher who is quick to get to the heart of any design problem.
Harriet is amazing! She has fantastic vision, a keen eye for design and detail, and timeless taste, but is also very practical, playing a key project management role alongside our builder. Harriet has been an integral part of our entire building project, helping to refine our original design to ensure we achieved the best living spaces, providing designs and concepts, finding suppliers, sourcing samples, and pushing us to think ‘outside the box’.
Harriet immediately understood what we wanted and the feeling we were trying to achieve, so much so that we trusted her to make decisions when we had to travel for our jobs. We had complete faith that we would love any decision she made. She has unending energy, always looking for ways to make the house unique and suited to our family.
We could not have managed the build without Harriet and the house would be a fraction of what it is without her creativity and dedication. She has created a beautiful family home, suited to the countryside we live in and the lifestyle we want. It’s impossible to find words that convey our appreciation for what she has created.
