Why work with us?

Renovating or extending your home is exhausting.
...And if flicking through magazines, getting lost in Pinterest and trawling round the shops could get you the home you dream of, it would be done by now.

How we can help

Focus On What You Do Best

Updating your home can feel like a full time job, and you just don't have time.

You're busy living your life and all that entails.

We partner with you to finally get your renovation done, doing all the legwork so you don't have to.

Resolve Disputes

Much as you love your partner, do you sometimes struggle to agree on priorities, colours, purpose of rooms? (-snooker room or home spa?)

All those little (and not so little) decisions and disagreements can leave stuck you in 'analysis paralysis'. At this rate it'll take years before you're relaxing on that new sofa (and that's if you're still talking to each other!)

Avoid expensive mistakes

We use 3D visuals and renderings along with sample boards to allow you to really see the scheme as a whole allowing you to make informed decisions, before you make a single purchase.

3 Steps to Your Dream Home

Headshot of Helen holding a cup of coffee sitting at a table

Helen and the team at Coral Interiors offer an approachable, friendly and hopefully fun(!) partnership with our clients. 

Whether you're building, renovating, or refreshing your decor, our award-winning team will help you create a home that is a reflection of your lifestyle and aspirations.  

We take time to really listen to you, uncover your tastes and desires and then create a scheme a little beyond what you may have come up with yourself. 

Sure, this may involve a little nudging from the safety of their comfort zone, but we know good design needs to elicit a 'wow' and that may mean more colour, pattern and texture than you may be used to.

1. It all starts with a brief call to discuss your project, let us know your plans and timescales. 

2. If we think we can help we'll send you a questionnaire to find out more about your likes and dislikes. 

3. Then we book your in home consultation, which can be a standalone service, to help you make some key decisions, or the jumping off point to a full project.

How We Work

  • It all starts with an initial chat on the phone and the all-important Coral Interiors questionnaire - from there we can offer you anything from a one-off consultation to full service design and project management. 
  • Using an interior designer can also avoid making costly mistakes. We use 3D visuals and renderings along with sample boards to allow you to really see the scheme as a whole allowing you to make informed decisions, before you make a single purchase.
  • As we all know, life can get in the way and renovating a new home, or planning the extension gets put off. We can help you achieve your dreams to a deadline and a budget, giving you more time to relax and enjoy your space. 
  • Best of Houzz for Design and Service from 2016-2021
  • We also offer show home installation for property developers (home staging). Prospective buyers generally struggle to see themselves in an empty property and no matter how big it is, or how great the views, it's hard to elicit that emotional response without a welcoming, aspirational interior. 
  • Based in Bournemouth, Dorset, but serving the South, Midlands and London, give us a call or send us a message to see how we can help.

Our Services



The consultation package can be a standalone service to help you get un-stuck or re-inspired, or the jumping-off point to a full project. 

We can help you make decisions and wlll definitely throw in a few options you may not have thought of.

  We'll come with a selection of paint charts, fabric and wallpaper books and magazines and we'll offer guidance on:

  • Colour schemes
  • Space planning
  • Window treatments
  • Lighting
  • Furniture styles
  • Art, accessories and finishing touches

Your consultation includes: 

1. A pre-consultation questionnaire , with a private Pinterest or Houzz Board

2. An in-person (or virtual) meeting at your home (please allow up to 2 hours)

3. We'll follow up with a written consultation summary, including suggested colour scheme and concept board. 


from £850 per room

If you'd like more help following your consultation, but are happy to source items and project manage the work yourself, at your own pace, the Design-Only package is for you. 

We'll collaborate with you to create schemes for your house/rooms, pushing you a little beyond your own imagination and comfort zone to create a scheme you can't wait to see.

We'll provide:

  • 2D floor plans and 3D visuals to see how your furniture will fit and the flow from room to room
  • Mood boards for each room, showing colours, fabrics, wallpaper, furniture, etc  
  • Relevant samples and swatches 
  • Outline schedule of works, so you can organise your trades in the right order
  • Suggested furniture, accessories (retail options) . You can source from our list, or use this as inspiration.

This is for you if you're happy to coordinate  trades, order furniture and curtains, etc, yourself.

(Your consultation fee is deducted from the fee proposal).


Fee tailored to your project

The majority of our clients opt for full service design, which combines design with project management.

This  includes everything in the Consultation and Design-Only Packages, as well as:

  • 3D Visuals and detailed presentations (up to 2 revisions per room)
  • We'll arrange for quotes from trades and suppliers and run the project for you
  • Access to trade-only suppliers with preferential pricing
  • Everything delivered and installed in one go, by our expert removals company, so you get that 'ta-da moment' when you walk in the door. (Happy tears may ensue!)

This is our VIP service to minimise overwhelm and decision fatigue and manage the day to day running of your project, leaving you free to focus on what you do best.

(Your consultation fee is deducted from the fee proposal).

They Say

Central London loft extension and house renovation

Helen was involved in each stage of our renovation process and was so much more than "just" a designer.
Her suggestions and designs were amazing and she had ideas that we would never have come up with. She also worked with our builders to get layout right, found suppliers for beds, blinds, bathrooms, hardware, tiles: you name it, she can do it!

She was supportive throughout and we'd use her again in a heartbeat.

H. Day, West London

Helen at Coral Interiors really helped us when we became daunted by all the design decisions in our new-build house. We didn’t want to make expensive mistakes and Helen was able to clarify what we needed and encouraged us to be braver with our colour choices. She was recommended to us by a friend and we are so glad we used Coral Interiors and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again in future.
