Who could be­lieve PAULA GUNDRY and her team have been on Westle­gate in Nor­wich for over a year now, hav­ing just cel­e­brated by host­ing a well at­tended evening of wine tast­ing with Harper Wells, and canapés with some of their val­ued clients.

“Westle­gate has be­come a fo­cal shop­ping point for those wish­ing to find some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent” says Paula. “An area with it’s own in­di­vid­u­al­ity. I’m ex­tremely proud to have been the first In­te­rior De­sign busi­ness in the area, chang­ing the face of Westle­gate, which has be­come a vi­brant part of the Nor­wich shop­ping scene”.

“It’s amaz­ing how the time has flown” says Paula, who’s busi­ness and team of in­te­rior de­sign­ers has grown over an eight year pe­riod. “Due to de­mand by our clients, our busi­ness has ex­panded and de­vel­oped to of­fer ad­di­tional prod­ucts and ser­vices. To show­case this we have re­cently de­signed and in­stalled a se­lec­tion of our hand built be­spoke work which in­cludes a kitchen area, a boot room and a sam­ple of our dress­ing room wardrobes, to give our clients an idea of the range of de­sign we can of­fer. These and a se­lec­tion of bath­room cabi­netry and van­ity units are just a small se­lec­tion dis­played in store”.

“We’re proud to say that all of our cabi­netry is hand made in the UK by our own crafts­men, and con­structed us­ing tra­di­tional meth­ods such as dove­tail joints and made from a va­ri­ety of tim­bers. Whilst de­sign­ing, we draw from our huge se­lec­tion of un­usual wall and floor tiles and stones. Even leather floor­ing which is avail­able ex­clu­sively to our de­sign clients. Our clients are of­ten spoilt for choice, mak­ing our guid­ance and help a cru­cial part of the de­sign process”.

“We re­cently com­pleted a beau­ti­ful fam­ily bath­room for clients on New­mar­ket Road, for whom we have worked for

on many of their rooms over a three year pe­riod. Ini­tially they were re­ferred to us, and we cre­ated de­signs and supplied ev­ery el­e­ment of their din­ing room, fam­ily room, front and rear halls, as well as mas­ter bed­room and two chil­dren’s bed­rooms. This in­cluded car­pet­ing, wall cov­er­ings, light­ing, paint and fur­ni­ture as well as pro­vid­ing the ser­vices of our pro­fes­sional trades­men”.

“Our clients re­turned to us feel­ing safe and com­fort­able, know­ing we would look af­ter and guide them, whilst un­der­stand­ing that their life­style and fam­ily would be in­cluded in the process. Plan­ning and in­stal­la­tion of the fam­ily bath­room took place over a four week pe­riod, we co or­di­nated ev­ery el­e­ment of the de­sign and in­stal­la­tion”.

When asked, Paula said “no two de­signs are ever the same, all be­gin­ning with a sim­ple con­ver­sa­tion or visit to the home. A friendly yet de­tailed con­ver­sa­tion helps us and our clients un­der­stand ex­actly what they wish to achieve. Sam­ples of fin­ishes for tim­ber, floor­ing, colours and light­ing all form part of our de­sign ser­vice, as well as com­puter gen­er­ated images, help­ing clients to vi­su­alise ex­actly what their home will look like, all fuelled with a dash of in­spi­ra­tion and lots of hands on skills and knowl­edge”.

An­other of Paula Gundry’s spe­cial­i­ties is soft fur­nish­ings with a vast range to choose from, such as cur­tains, poles and ac­ces­sories by com­pa­nies such as San­der­son, Har­lequin, Nina Camp­bell, Mul­berry and Brian Yates to name but a few. All of which can de­signed into a room along with light­ing and fur­ni­ture.

So, if you are not nat­u­rally creative or re­quire a lit­tle sup­port to de­velop your ideas whilst main­tain­ing your busy life, help and guid­ance is at hand with ev­ery el­e­ment priced in ad­vance of­fer­ing trans­parency all the way.
