Eliz studied design at the Glasgow School of Art. As a professional interior designer, she has over the years acquired a wealth of knowledge about most aspects of interior design. She appreciates the subtleties in making decorating successful, individual to the client and exciting.
One of her favourite quotes is from a client who stated that “not only had you changed my décor, you’ve changed my lifestyle”
This is why she does the job she does… the sheer enjoyment of hearing how delighted clients are when a room, a house, etc, is completed.
Eliz listens to the client, considers their requirements, and chooses accordingly. She tends to take you slightly outside your usual comfort zone and produces outcomes which you can enjoy for years to come.
Having worked for various interior design outlets, including Frasers of Buchanan St, and having worked from home, Eliz decided to open her own shop in Uddingston, in 2010. She is delighted at its growth and welcomes new clients as potential new challenges in home décor. No two clients are the same. They are all individuals with individual hopes for their décor. She considers it a pleasure every time she is given the task of choosing a new colour scheme for their homes.
Eliz has also tackled interior design at clubhouses, hotels and even the interior of a church. Her artistic skills and creative drive allow her to take on most challenges. Visualising, through her drawing skills, can let people make choices in confidence when they take on new projects.
e.g. A couple about to extend their home – all looked wonderful with the CAD print outs of the internal layout but when Eliz drafted the knock on effect of the proposed build the plans were completely reconsidered. She then went on to complete the décor of the new build. A case of visualising for the clients before the foundations were laid, before it was too late!
