It's all those little things that make your home feel beautiful. Antique items and furniture, one off pieces, quality glassware, plants and potted colour... I create beautiful, unique spaces with key pieces that add that extra special “something” to your home. As always, it's all about the detail.

 
Abi and her team have delivered everything we wanted, stress-free and on time. Once in the process of creating the vision, Abi was a whirlwind who had an amazing sense of purpose and flair. She has gone above and beyond to exceed our expectations and worked energetically to get our house ready. I would encourage anyone with a project to allow Kärlek Interior Design to take their dream and develop it into an amazing and unique reality.

At a glance anyone could see this project was not one for the faint hearted.  Walls covered in black mould, threadbare carpets and lack of flow and natural light were the first challenges I faced when designing and renovating this beauty. This home had hidden grandeur and endless opportunities oozing from every architrave that needed to be brought back to life to reveal an incredible family home ...

This beautiful Villa was another hidden gem, untouched for many years, it had also (as is typical of many of our Villas) been tinkered and added too over the last 100 years and had lost a lot of the Villa charm that we all love. It had so much personality and warmth, but it was intangible. You needed to be able to see it not just feel it, but it was hidden under 70’s wallpaper, vinyl floors, old carpet, small boxed rooms and even a 40 year old grape vine... 

A Drop of Faith. A Smidge of Sunshine.

 

It’s all about the “detail” including those intangible things, it’s often as much about how and what you “feel” when you enter a home that creates a connection as much as what you can see. This may sound obvious, but it is often overlooked. I adapt and evolve what you already have to create spaces that you will love, adding those intangibles, so the magic can happen.
