Show Notes

For interior design projects, the perfect client is one with deep pockets and a spirit of adventure; a client who admires their designer’s personal style and respects and trusts the designer’s vision for their spaces.

So just how important is it for designers to have a recognisable style to attract their dream clients?

And how should designers define their unique design vision and then communicate it effectively to attract those dream clients?

We're joined by acclaimed interior designer Susie Atkinson for her perspective on this fascinating topic as she shares her own journey with a live audience of designers, together with her views on interior design style and client relationships.

This episode was recorded at the Roca London Gallery as part of the podcast's third birthday celebrations. We are grateful to series sponsors, Parkside Architectural Tiles, for their support.

The Business Start-Up

You’ve worked hard to get your interior design qualifications and you have spent years working even harder in other people’s design studios honing your knowledge and skills. Finally, you feel ready to break free, spread your entrepreneurial wings and run your own interior design company.   But how do you know when the time is right to take the first step?

New kids on the block, Courtney Giles and Marianne Roe, explain how and why they set up Studio Smiths and what's making their partnership such a success.  This episode is a Wildwood production.        ...

Rethinking Technology And Interiors For The Post-Pandemic Home

Never before in the history of the modern family have homes been under such intense pressure as they have been since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis. Residential properties that would have been mostly empty during weekdays and only fully occupied during sleeping hours have suddenly had to do double duty as office, school, and gym, putting enormous strain on occupants as they compete for the space they need. We are radically rethinking our homes and how we want to live. What should interior designers be focusing on to meet these new needs? And, how can technology help in solving some of the issues encountered in this Brave New World? Join Vanessa Leyland of Vanessa Leyland Interiors, Andrew Royall of Eclectic Home Technology and Susie Rumbold of Tessuto Interiors to find out. Sponsored by CEDIA, this episode is an edited, audio-only version of our webinar which is available to view, if preferred,from the on-demand content at Designscape here: https://www.thedesignscape.co.uk We are a Wildwood production. ...

Design Meets Technology With The Showroom Experience

September is a busy, back to work month. The holidays are a dim and distant memory, the kids are heading off to school and it’s time to gear up for show season - a time that's full of innovations, new ideas and education opportunities. From the 15th until the 23rd September, London is taken over by the London Design Festival. Smart home is an increasingly visible part of the events taking place. So, on this first episode we talk about interior design and technology integration. We welcome two special guests to look at how professioanl designers and integrators collaborate, sometimes collide, but, ultimately, can work better together for the mutual benefit of clients. From the world of interior design, we're joined by Susie Rumbold of Tessuto Interiors, former President of the British Institute of Interior Design, and from award-winning, London integration business, ClearSphere, we have Director, Alistair Ingram. Our home for this episode is the Crestron showroom, located on the second floor of the sourcing mecca for savvy interior designers, the Design Centre in Chelsea Harbour. Later in the show, Phil Pini and Kate Fauset from Crestron are our guests. They will explain the showroom experience, how it works and give their insights into how this facility helps bring home technology to life for the benefit of interior designers and their clients. ...
