Nichola is passionate about interiors, furniture, textiles and trends.
A firm believer that a home and design scheme should reflect the client’s personality and lifestyle, whilst including all the
key elements that make the homeowner happy to live and enjoy their home.
The aim is to create a space that is practical, beautiful and unique.
Nichola has a background in the advertising industry and has trained at the renowned design school, KLC in Chelsea Harbour.
Since setting up Penman Interiors, Nichola has worked on many varied renovation projects in and around London.
Nichola is a member of the British Institute of Interior Design (BIID) and is fully insured.
I appointed Nichola after a competitive pitch process as the interior designer and project manager for works at my flat in Chiswick. Nichola’s approach from the outset was creative, passionate and highly efficient. She was very thorough when we first met to discuss the project and produced a client brief that reflected our discussion accurately and provided a clear sense of her thoughtful consideration of how I would want to use the space by including lifestyle and preferences that were really reassuring.
She employed skilled and trustworthy professionals to undertake the works including carpentry, electricals, decoration and soft furnishings. She kept me updated at all stages of the process and sourced some beautiful items at a range of prices to suit the design brief and my budget. She has a keen eye for colour, shape and texture and all the different elements of the design including mirrors, kitchen tiles, lighting, furniture and ornaments have come together in perfect harmony.
Through Nichola my flat is transformed – it encapsulates all I wanted – a welcoming and attractive hallway, an open and stylish kitchen, reception and entertaining space, a peaceful and extremely comfortable bedroom and an overall look and feel that has not only increased my enjoyment of my property, but also its value!
In short, I would definitely recommend Nichola for interior design projects – she has real creative flair but she is also keen to reflect her clients’ wishes and she is an absolute pleasure to work with.
I used Penman Interiors to refurbish two bathrooms in my home and was absolutely thrilled with the result.
Both projects came in on budget and on time! The work was carried out professionally and to a very high standard.
I am about to refurbish my kitchen and sitting room and will definitely be using them again.
Highly recommend them!
From Rose Hayward – SF Management
We asked Nichola to help us when we refurbished our home last year.
Nichola worked with our builder to fulfil our design dreams for our house internally.
We were very pleased with her proactive approach and practical creativity in designing bathrooms, our new kitchen, storage and various internal architecture.
We would not hesitate to recommend her to any future client.
From Deborah Houlihan – Dulwich client
We’re absolutely delighted with our new kitchen and dining area which has transformed our family life.
Thanks to Nichola and her meticulous eye for detail we now have a home we can all enjoy whilst being functional and meeting all of our needs.
We’re now planning a garden project and will certainly be calling on Nichola again for help!
