Recently an interior design studio Natalie Holden Interiors was asked to design a fresh and timeless look for a Victorian property in Sale, Manchester. Blending traditional features with modern furnishings, the property was completely revived from looking very tired – imagine floral carpets and plain walls – to one full of character.
To deliver on this brief, the team at Natalie Holden Interiors re-instated panelling throughout the stairwell, landing and the bedroom. A bold painted banister, painted stair tread and striped monochrome carpet runner greets you as you walk upstairs. The bedroom was designed as a calming space to switch off, with a boutique hotel feel. Floor to ceiling double layered curtains and voiles, and a custom pink headboard made in house add a softness to the space. The soft furnishings were chosen to add a pop of colour and can be easily changed in future.
Natalie Holden Interiors began as a blog back in 2012; a space for Natalie to journal her passions of interior design, art, property, travel and architecture. In 2018 she turned her skill and passion into a business with a mission to change the perception of Interior Design. Natalie qualified with a first class BA honours degree in Interior Design at John Moore’s University in 2010 and has been working in the interior design industry for 12 years.
After seeing how interior design can be negatively perceived as a luxury and unnecessary service, Natalie made it her mission to showcase the value and impact of design on a deeper level. Good design is a powerful tool that can transform positive change in people’s lives; creating the foundations for a happy home or a successful business.
Four years later the business has evolved into a small team working on both private and commercial projects including revamping private homes, curating show homes and apartment interiors for property developments, and delivering commercial concepts.
