Continuing with our ‘Designer of the Month’ series, this month we have the pleasure of introducing Zoe Brewer, Creative Director and owner of My Interior Stylist Ltd.
Tell us about your company…
My Interior Stylist Ltd, is an established interior styling and design company, renowned for our comprehensive range of services. Although my main design work is with residential clients, I love using my styling skills in different ways, and have taken on many different challenges along the way. From styling weddings and parties, to design show homes and offices, design for TV make over shows and running “My Pop Up Design Shop” (that is actually what it was called). I have also recently started my own blog, where I share my design finds, as well as behind the scenes posts about my work.
My ethos has always been to be friendly, helpful and flexible, as I believe this is the key starting point to offering a good service, and this is I think why the majority of my work is from client referrals.
What is your background?
My love of creating and designing started as a little girl, knitting throws and hand painting wallpaper for my sister’s dolls house. However initially I pursued a career in TV production, my other major interest. I worked as Head of Production, managing huge teams and budgets, eventually setting up my own production company. However my creative obsession with “making things look pretty” (OHs description of my job) didn’t ever go away & eventually My Interior Stylist was born. I’ve never looked back since, and feel very lucky to have a successful business doing something that I love.
Who has inspired you?
I have to admit that my inspirations do change quite often! Currently, stylist Emily Henderson. I love her relaxed style, mixing old with new, and the tone of her blog is very funny. I also find a wealth of inspiration on Pinterest. It’s a starting point for me on every job.
What has been your favourite interior project to date?
I’m really pleased with my latest project, 8 luxury apartments at Lower Mill Estate. Due to the build schedule, we had 5 days to furnish & dress the apartments! This meant that I had to be prepped down to every last curtain hook and coffee cup. I had enlisted a massive crew of assistants, handymen and stylists, to ensure we finished on time and we just about made it! You can find more inside info about this project with a series of posts on my blog.
What is the best piece of advice anyone has given you?
I’m not sure where it’s from, but this is definitely advice I try to live by “Work hard and be nice to people”.
