In 1994 I began my interior design company, with no real plan or direction, just a passion for design. Twenty years later and many wonderful projects, experiences and travels under my belt, I would like to share with you some of the information and inspiration I have gathered through our portfolio and blog.
Through our design projects we work with some of the most luxurious furniture and fabric companies in Europe, especially from France, Italy, Sweden, England and Belgium.
Sourcing antiques is a big aspect of our business and my favourite part is travelling and looking for unusual pieces. It is so exciting when I source the perfect antique console or trumeau mirror for a design project and it works perfectly to finish a room.
I believe designing interiors does not need to be complicated and I work and live by my design philosophy that big or small ‘attention to detail is everything’.
Together with interior design I work alongside business owners who require our experience for branding, marketing, and product design. This makes my business so interesting as you get to meet and work with so many creative people and to share my passion for business.
Having spent three years living in the South of France with my husband Nigel, two kids Christina and Patrick, Bubbles our dog, and commuting to our projects around Europe has inspired me greatly.
I hope to share with you experiences from our time living in the South of France, travel and interior tips, and in general what we are up to through our blog; Minnie Peters – a life of European design.
People throughout the world have such a strong passion for European design and antiques. I am constantly being contacted through our website and social media about my design style and how I visualise and create the end result for the individuality of each of our design projects. I am excited to share my expertise and experiences through a series of online interior design courses to inspire my followers in creating their own European design.
