We love what we do here at our design studio.
We love the people we work with, clients and colleagues. We are passionate about the homes we work with and the people who live in them. It isn’t just a job for us, we never switch off; always hunting out the perfect piece, the next design trend or simply gathering inspiration for our next project.
We believe every project is individual because everybody is different and every home brings new ideas and opportunities. Therefore, here at our design studio, every project we complete is different. 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…and 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.
Surely that’s part of the fun of hiring a designer: we’re here to introduce you to some wonderful styles, textures, lighting and design ideas to make your home the wonderful place you want it to be. We are here to work with you, it’s a two way process and we listen to your thoughts along the way; it is your home after all, so the final call is always with you.

'Caroline, Katie and Deborah were all amazing! We wanted our place to bring the outside in, to which they delivered to! We were probably not the easiest of clients as I wanted more modern items and my husband wanted more comfy ones! Worlds apart! But the slightly quirky team found the perfect blend and made everything look amazing! We absolutely love our home that has been done up. Caroline's creativity, Deborah's determination and Katie's organisation skills were just a few of the elements that was brought to the table that we loved. I don't know how they did it - but it all comes together nicely. If we were left to own devices, we wouldn't have got anywhere as nice. They were able to mix together different textures and colours in which we wouldn't have even thought about. They also helped sort out any issues with delivery/furniture and they made it so easy and pain-free! Its been fantastic working with them. Definitely recommend Slightly Quirky for anyone thinking to do up your house or flat! They are such lovely people and they work to your needs (no matter how weird they are! :)). Thank you sooo much for everything you did for us 🙂 Till the next place 😉'
'I can’t praise the Slightly Quirky team enough. Their dedication and support during a whole house renovation was excellent. Being a complete novice to both design and delivery we were looking for a guiding hand to help us step outside of comfort zone to produce something amazing. Slightly Quirky delivered! From the initial consultation to completion the team took great care and attention our preferences and requirements. They were excellent at showing us a range of options of both taste and price to ensure we got the right thing. Not only were their designs stunning but the service they provided during the whole project was outstanding, as if was their own home. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Slightly Quirky and we’ll certainly be using them for any future design needs we have. It’s also mentioning their recommendations for trades such as builders/decorators/curtain makers etc were also excellent and we’re very glad we went with their suggestions.'

'We are absolutely delighted with our room designs by SQ. The outcomes are exponentially better than what we could have achieved ourselves and what we expected by working with them. We thought we wanted modern contemporary rooms. We got so much more than that, we now have beautiful rooms that are distinct and reflect who we are as a family. To get a really good outcome, we had to let ourselves go and get onboard with the journey that SQ guided us on. They consulted with us to understand us as a family, who we are and what we like. Then we stood back and let them work their magic. And it is magic. Because great things happen when you put great responsibility in great design minds. We never would have imagined owing and loving a Mustard yellow sofa. Building a rich Drummond red media unit. Fitting acoustic wood panels to the wall. It would have been so easy for us to turn away from the individual bold design choices suggested and for us to try and actively pick the direction of travel. I am clear in my mind that it would not have resulted in such a good outcome if we did because it's a complex jigsaw to bring together a magical room and that's what SQ are brilliant at. If you want a brilliant outcome, stand back, let them deliver that to you. Sure, you need to pick between a couple of choices they give you. But if you move in the direction they recommend and go with it all then what you can get is jaw dropping results. SQ have a 'secret sauce' that they use to design a magical room for you. If you are talking to them, you are lucky. You have found a very good partner to work with. Now you are in the know, what are you waiting for?'
