Spring is here and it’s time for a new take on some favourite spa­ces. Let Paula Gundry and her team of in­te­rior de­sign­ers pro­vide in­spi­ra­tion for your home

EDP Norfolk - - Interiors -

THE well lo­cated and ac­ces­si­ble first floor show­room on Nor­wich’s bustling Westle­gate is a stylish col­lec­tion of clas­sic and con­tem­po­rary fur­ni­ture, fab­rics, light­ing and home ac­ces­sories.

But the Paula Gundry In­te­ri­ors prod­uct reach is global - and much of it is ex­clu­sive to Paula in East Anglia.

“Our beau­ti­ful prod­ucts are not avail­able in the high street stores,” Paula ex­plains. “Our ex­ten­sive show­room gives just a flavour of some of the stock that we can ac­cess and have in stock - for ex­am­ple, San­der­son cush­ions, Mul­berry throws and can­dles. Ju­lian Chich­ester din­ing ta­bles, John Sankey so­fas and chairs sit­ting along site Gal­lotti & Radice cof­fee ta­bles and light­ing. “The team as­sist cus­tomers with ad­vice and have made beau­ti­ful cur­tains and blinds of­ten co-or­di­nat­ing with some of the many ranges of wall­pa­pers such as Cole and Son Eli­tis, San­der­son, Romo, Thibault, Anna French and Pierre Frey to name but a few.”

Mean­while, a core team of de­sign­ers, sup­ported by con­sul­tants and trusted con­trac­tors work­ing across Nor­folk, Suf­folk and Cam­bridgeshir­e, are able to ad­vise on res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial pro­jects - from one room to a whole build­ing - start­ing with a per­sonal “In­spi­ra­tion Visit”, from as lit­tle as £120.

“In­te­rior de­sign does not have to be an ex­pen­sive out­lay, we of­fer the In­spi­ra­tion Visit as the first step to the de­sign process,” says Paula. “We visit the home and get a feel for the client and their home, and what they like.”

Cost es­ti­mates are pro­vided from the start in a to­tally trans­par­ent and per­son­alised bud­get.

“We help clients to de­velop ideas and in­tro­duce some that they may not have con­sid­ered,” says Paula. “We lis­ten to what our clients want and then come up with fresh and ex­cit­ing ideas from a sim­ple re­furb or a com­plete makeover.

“Spring is such an ex­cit­ing time of year for home own­ers and de­sign­ers alike.

“I firmly be­lieve that it’s an in­te­rior de­signer’s job to help our clients achieve what they want, not to force an opin­ion on them. We take a friendly and straight for­ward ap­proach to de­sign, and are able to source many stun­ning and in­ter­est­ing pieces.”

Paula also urges po­ten­tial clients to visit her web­site for a bet­ter idea of de­sign with im­ages of pre­vi­ous pro­jects com­pleted by the team at www.paula­gundry­in­te­ri­

“We have a huge range of ex­pe­ri­ence in the team, from the friendly faces in the show­room to the team mem­bers work­ing in res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial de­sign,” says Paula. “We’re a very friendly yet ex­pe­ri­enced and knowl­edgable team - and we gen­uinely care, which is what sets us apart from many other com­pa­nies.”
