Creative interior design studio specialising in innovative and bespoke interiors.




Karen has a wonderful eye for design and transformed our boring cream kitchen and sitting room into beautiful spaces with gorgeous colours ! She brought along mood boards, fabric books, paint books – everything we could possibly need. We loved every single idea she had and are so grateful to her for this transformation !

I can’t say enough about Karen from Emerald Interior Design. I carried out a refurbishment of my house and everything went well with the structural work. But when it came to the redecoration and furnishing I realised that I had no clue what to to… enter Karen.

From the internet I could gather that I liked a classic kind of look and feel and that was about as much as I could tell Karen. But with the skill of a surgeon she was able to painlessly extract from me exactly how I would like each room to look and feel – from bathrooms to bedrooms, from kitchen to Lounge. And she delivered everything, incorporating function with design, way beyond my expectation and with the ease of simplicity that was simply a joy to watch.
I cannot recommend Emerald Interior Design enough.

Would highly recommend Emerald Interiors for a professional, efficient yet personal service. Karen was an absolute pleasure to work with and did a fantastic job with our master bedroom. She had some great ideas and suggestions and managed to capture our own sense of personal style. We were truly delighted with the end result.

Emerald Interior Design undertook a major refurbishment project in our home I couldn’t be happier with the service they provided. Karen’s ability to understand our needs, and deliver such fantastic results is amazing. Her professionalism and management skills ensured a stress free project for us. We now have a home we truly love, and all at a budget we could afford.

I already have and will continue to recommend her services.

We engaged Emerald Interior Design to re-design and decorate our living room. The room is dual aspect with different shaped windows so getting the window treatments right was vital. Karen had wonderful creative ideas which I would never have thought of and helped me to see the potential of the space.

Karen listened to us and involved us throughout the project. We simply could not have achieved what we achieved without the help of Karen and her team.

I have no hesitation in recommending Emerald Interior Designs to anyone considering undertaking a refurbishment.

I am absolutely delighted with what Emerald Interior Design has achieved in our home. It’s more than I could have anticipated. Karen totally understood what we wanted and she came up with some fantastic ideas which we would never have thought of on our own. She even had all our family photos reframed and we now have a gallery area displaying our treasured photos……. Fantastic!

Karen was on hand every step of the way and was at the end of the phone whenever I needed her, no matter how trivial my question may have seemed.

We now have a beautiful home, which we could never have achieved without Karen’s help. I would highly recommend Emerald Interior Design to anyone considering home improvements. The whole process was not only stress free, but it was a very enjoyable experience.

Having looked on the internet for an interior designer for ages we finally decided on Emerald Design.

We chose the company because we got a really good feel from the website and we loved the blog full of fun design inspiration. I made an inquiry via the website and within a day or two Karen Hughes had contacted us. We had a small budget and a one bed apartment that we wanted designed in a ‘sophisticated pretty chic style’.

Karen was so helpful throughout the process, translating our ideas of colour and design into reality. The enthusiasm, passion and attention to detail Karen brought to the project was so reassuring.  We are absolutely thrilled with the result, it is above and beyond what we had ever imagined possible in an apartment space.

The upholstery and light fittings Karen chose are especially stunning!  We love our new home!

Thanks to all at Emerald Design.

The gallery wall is amazing! Thank you so much.  The overall design looks amazing but the gallery wall in particular is so special for me and for my family.

Thank you again for all your help.

This is just a quick note to thank you and your team for the beautiful curtains you provided in my home. I am absolutely delighted with the results. The curtains are stunning and show off the windows beautifully. They have been complimented by everyone who has seen them.

You were a delight to work with, energetic, enthusiastic and full of creative ideas. I also want to compliment your installation team who did a wonderful job and left no mess whatsoever. I have recommended your services to all my friends.
