Help from the experts

We discover how the team at Julian Foye can make your interior design project an absolute breeze.

Interior design is often one of the most enjoyable aspects of decorating our homes, but with so much choice it can be difficult to find the perfect items to provide the finishing touches that you’re looking for. With all the decisions to make in terms of colour schemes, furniture and price, it can become a daunting task and sometimes all it takes is a little help from the experts to get the ball rolling.

Julian Foye’s in-house interior design specialist Sarah Roberts has over 30 years’ experience in the industry, and oversees all of the company’s design packages. Providing an excellent free interiors service, Sarah’s happy to meet you on location in Cornwall and west Devon, or you can visit her in one of the many stores throughout Cornwall to discuss your property aspirations over a cup of coffee. Following your initial meeting, Sarah will then work to translate your ideas into a bespoke design package, complementing your property in a stylish way that’s sympathetic to your given budget. Sarah tells us: “I love to take inspiration from the architectural style of a property and the wonderful landscapes which make up many aspects of Cornwall, from the sea to the moors. One day I’ll be furnishing an old tiny cottage in a fishing village and the next a brand new, spacious and modern house with rural views.”

If part of the problem is that you don’t have the time to truly throw yourself into your interior design project, perhaps you’re too busy ferrying the kids to school and yourself to work, with weekends being spent at the beach and not at home, then Julian Foye offers the timesaving option of completely overseeing your project for you. Sarah is able to fully manage everything, from planning colour schemes, overseeing deliveries and fittings or simply guiding you through the process. One customer has said of the service: “We wish to say thank you to everyone at Julian Foye for helping us with the purchase of our new furniture, in particular to Sarah who was fantastic with creating the style we were looking for.”

The company also provides a holiday home package that will elevate your property instantly and make it immediately possible for holiday guests to book. All packages are completed to your particular specifications and are carefully curated in a way that co-ordinates the entire appearance of a property, making it as appealing as possible to prospective guests. Plus, if you live away from Cornwall, you can rely on the team at Julian Foye to supervise the complete furnishing of your property in your absence. Carpets are expertly fitted by their own fitters, all furniture is set out as agreed and rooms are left clean and tidy. Whether you simply want a hand with selecting furniture, or you’re after more in-depth advice the team at Julian Foye really do go above and beyond in making the whole process of furnishing your property incredibly easy. So you can spend less time worrying, and more time getting down to the beach this summer.
