Leanne joined Natalie Holden Interiors as an Interior Designer in January and we can’t wait for you to meet her. We thought we’d get her involved in our blog series Q&A so you can get to know her more!
What’s your favourite interior design style?
I love period properties with eclectic interiors! I like the mix of styles & eras within a space as well as original features that add character. I also love an interior that has an atmosphere; I personally love dimly lit rooms and moody hues.
I feel an interior should reflect your own personality; I’d like to think that people feel that my own home reflects my identity.
Where do you find inspiration?
I find a lot of inspiration from fashion, a personal love of mine! I am constantly seeing trends featured in the fashion world follow through into the interiors industry; I like to find print & texture trends & unusual colour combinations this way.
I also love to travel & I usually come back home from a holiday or city break with a fresh inspiration & a new perspective on design & how to push the boundaries!
I do also love a good scroll through Instagram! I really admire the property of @beetrootandblack & I find fashion inspiration from @trinnywoodall. She embraces colour and explains the ins and outs to creating a perfect look in her ‘Closet Confessions’ vlogs.
Best place you’ve visited?
My favourite place to visit is Skiathos, a small island part of the Sporades Island group in Greece. It is known for its amazing beaches, natural ambiance, cosmopolitan aura and vivid nightlife, this idyllic island is my dream home!
For a more energetic trip I love Barcelona, I adore the culture, the abundance of historic architecture and overall lively yet laidback vibe! I actually got engaged here so it has a special place in my heart!
My favourite colour is actually magenta however I rarely wear it or use in my interior schemes but I am very drawn to the vibrant, richness of this hue. I tend to lean towards deep, saturated shades for my personal interiors such as forest green & petrol blue.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself!
I have self-taught floristry skills and I find flowers and floral creation very calming & satisfying to see the end results of something you’ve personally created.
I have created various centre pieces, bouquets and florals for cakes for various occasions. My favourite thing to create however are Christmas wreaths; I think a wild, floral wreath with a plethora of flowers creates such an opulent look on your front door over the festive period!
