The headteacher of a school in London was looking for a complete interior re-design of her office. After posting her project to Design for Me we matched her with the best candidates and she received interest from a number of interior designers.



Head Mistress’ Office – Interior Designer 

I become Head Mistress of a school in Highgate in September. I have a budget to completely refurbish the office, including all the furniture and soft furnishings.

We will have assistance from the school’s maintenance team in painting and installing the chosen look. I am keen to create a light and airy space with a country house feel. 



Through Design for Me, the client narrowed down her search and ultimately found the perfect fit for her project in interior designers Deborah & Caroline:

We believe every project is individual because everybody is different, and every home or workplace brings new ideas and opportunities. Therefore, here at our design studio, every project we complete is unique. We don’t replicate ‘a look’, we prefer to introduce new ideas to every project. We love the idea of mixing different styles, brought together in a cohesive design… not to mention the odd slightly quirky touch!

This is what sets us apart, we love the mix of old and new, we love the idea of making a space interesting and, most of all, usable and enjoyable. We are creative and imaginative with our designs and love it when clients are open to big ideas and suggestions.

We have designed a confident, professional yet relaxed space by energising a calm colour palette with pops of colour and pattern.

We found an antique desk with leather inlay, a beautiful heritage piece which gives a gravitas and authenticity to the scheme. A touch of brushed brass also gives a heritage feel as well as a lovely accent to the scheme.



We re-upholstered a chair our client already has in this striking fabric to make it a real centrepiece to the scheme.


A happy client…

Caroline and I struck up a good rapport from the start, which gave me confidence that she understood me and my style as well as the constraints of my project. I am delighted that I have gone with her to design my new office.
