Over the last twenty four years, Carole has run an individual design and decorating business under the name of 'No. Twelve Queen Street'. She is supported by her business partner Keith Stables and backed by a team of experienced staff.
Carole's background and great interest is in textiles, which she studied for four years. She and her team work on private residential work in the UK, and abroad, and also undertakes commercial and hotel projects, again at home and internationally.
She describes her work as comfortable elegance without being overformal, although recent projects have included a spa and boardrooms which demanded an uncluttered look, with a feeling of light and space. Our furniture was a simple, contemporary look with classic undertones. Natural textures created the background finishes.
The company will oversee commissions, organising builders etc together with specialist finishes and all aspects of soft furnishing. Equally happy working alongside architects and within the disciplines of a Project Team.
Attention to detail, quality, craftsmanship and finish are an important factor in creating an interior.
Essential to any project is building up a really good relationship and trust with the client. The initial brief from the client, and the on-going working discussions are crucial in producing the final individual scheme.
