Roberta May Interiors offers all clients a comprehensive and flexible approach to design and styling. Our services range from adhering to a fixed brief, to starting from some rough ideas and sketches on a blank piece of paper.
Our experience ranges from bringing to life a long unloved and unlived in mansion in Brittany, a Tudor coaching inn in Devon and a 17th century town house in Somerset. To all these projects, we were proud to bring both flair and imagination supported by a unique vision and carried out by a team, each expert in their field, whether in lighting, decorating or soft furnishing. We focus meticulously on the details which others may not see in the belief that it is the combination of the details which create the whole.
In each case, our philosophy was straightforward - to bring together items with good design and stylish flair to match the needs of the client and the context. Textures, colour, light and form are all central to the overall result, whether the items are vintage, well-loved heirlooms, salvaged, upcycled or contemporary, or, often very effectively a combination of all of them.
All my working life has been involved in some aspect of design, shape and form. After starting out in fashion retailing from which I absorbed important lessons about the elements of colour, shape and texture, I moved into antiques while I was raising my two children. This was an interest and skill I inherited from my mother and stands me in good stead with Interiors as I can usually source interesting and appropriate pieces for most environments. For many years I ran a highly acclaimed jewellery shop in Somerset which was as recognised for its interior design as it was for its sales items. I was often asked to advise on other commercial settings, to display products to their best advantage for the retailers and then to style their homes. It is from this base that I started to work full time in Interior design.
I bring a wealth of experience and a cultivated eye to your home which I can restyle with integrity, inspiration, sympathy and skill which will both match and surpass your expectations.
