LIVEABLE LUXURY

CRAFTED
TO REFLECT
YOUR
LIFESTYLE

During our design journey every detail is meticulously planned for each client's needs and skilfully made by our trusted team of artisans. Catherine Wilman understands that choosing the right interior designer for a renovation or furnishing project can seem daunting.

 

However, our designers make the process stress-free for our clients. We're passionate about being hands-on, accessible and down-to-earth. Catherine starts each project with a client video consultation to get an understanding of the scope of work and the brief. And it's your chance to get to know 'Kate' and the team. 

Our focus is on architectural interior design and creating FF&E schemes (soft furnishing/furniture). Liveable luxury is our style. We always create schemes that fit with the way our client's live their lives and are guided by their individual taste. Depending on the project brief, we will prepare concepts for space planning, interior finishes, window treatments, furniture, accessories, art and a decorating schedule. We pay particular attention to the lighting plan to ensure it works with furniture layouts.

 

Once the client has signed off on the developed design and the project has gone to tender, we offer a Site Liaison service to ensure the design-intent is being implemented correctly by the contractor. If needed, we also work alongside an architect or Project Manager. As part of our procurement service, we can offer a turnkey solution to oversee the installation of furniture and accessories.

DESIGN IS IN OUR HERITAGE

Our family has been blending artistry and architectural interior design for four decades

Catherine Wilman learned about great design from an early age. Her father John Wilman was one of the leading wallpaper designers in the UK before recently retiring and inspired the young ‘Kate’ to get involved in design. John would often talk to Catherine about his work as he laid out his latest ideas on the floor of their Cheshire home. She was also inspired by her mother's ideas during a six-year renovation of the family's old farmhouse. Observing the builders, stonemasons and other craftsmen working on the project showed Catherine how a neglected space can be transformed into a beautiful country home.

Catherine would often accompany her father to work at Coloroll. He had a large design team and it was exciting for her to see how the designs went from an idea to a manufactured product selling around the world.

When Catherine gained a BA (Hons) Degree in Interior Design and Architecture in London, it was a natural progression for her to join her father at the family business, as a junior designer. She quickly worked her way up to be in charge of organising the company’s exhibitions in the UK and Europe.

During her six years at the Lancashire-based company, she worked alongside many of the top interior stylists in London photographing home interiors for UK magazines, including Homes and Gardens, Living Etc, and Elle Decoration.

These days, Catherine's reputation continues to grow and she is creating homes of distinction for an international clientele. The secret to this success is her down-to-earth approach, enabling clients to feel comfortable about expressing their views. Catherine, her designers, and the client work together as a team and turn dreams into reality.
