Why should I use an interior design service?
We have the vision and the expertise to know how to design your space to the best of its potential. Once we get to know you we will know what to recommend when it comes to the right scheme for your lifestyle, the right colours for your home, the right design for your needs, and the right products for your budget such as
lighting, furniture and accessories. At the end of our journey together your home will represent you in every single way.

Which project have you loved the most?
I love all our projects because I love working with people and maximising their home potential. One that has been a true labour of love is a family heritage home in St John’s Wood where we had to take into consideration their extensive art collection. Each room is filled with glorious stories and magical memories of their travels. The design, colour palette and furniture represent these lovely clients in every single way.

What is your favourite interiors trend right now?
We don’t do trends – we do timeless! A cosy and homely feel makes the home timeless while still feeling lived in.

What fabrics do you love?
I love using soft fabrics that have texture and interest. Colourful florals are out for me!

What is the most challenging room in the house?
The kitchen is the heart of any home and it’s always challenge as it needs to be functional and aesthetically pleasing at the same time. A home is not a museum – we all know that – but with good design, you should be able to keep the space
tidy and functional while giving it wow factor.

What colours are exciting you now?
Warm golden tones.

What is your interior decorating pet hate?
A feature wall is a no no. It’s done!

As we look ahead to summer, how can we flow our living space into the outdoor space?
If you are building an extension make sure the outdoor living space is on the same level as your interior and use similar materials on the floor for both areas. A great tip to make the most of your garden view is to hang the window dressing as high as possible, even up to the ceiling. This gives you a clear vista onto the outside space and means you do not block the natural light coming in.

For as little as £5 a month you can help sustain the vital work we do in celebrating and standing up for Jewish life in Britain.

100% of your donation will help us continue celebrating our community, in all its dynamic diversity...


Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.


There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.


In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.


Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish Newsalso produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Easy access

In an age when news is readily accessible, Jewish News provides high-quality content free online and offline, removing any financial barriers to connecting people.

Voice of our community to wider society

The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.

We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
