Growing up in a Cotswold village near the Regency town of Cheltenham, I developed a passion for property from an early age, inspired by the beautiful architecture I saw around me.

Moving away from the area to study, I was based in Surrey for several years, where I worked on numerous high end residential projects, for both private clients and property developers.

Having returned to Gloucestershire, I set up Vesta Design to provide a design service which meets the needs of clients in both town and country locations. I mainly cover the area from the city of Bath up through the Cotswolds, as well as London but can travel further if required - please
get in touch to discuss.

The biggest reward in my job comes from helping people create the home of their dreams.


Many people have an idea of what they would like their home to be like but struggle with how to achieve that. It is a pleasure to be able to guide them through the design process and deliver a beautiful, coherent scheme for them which they can enjoy every day.

Goddess of Hearth, Home & Family

Vesta is the goddess of hearth, home and family in Roman religion.

The hearth was a key place in Roman family life and was the place where meals were prepared. Today, modern living still has these values at the core as the kitchen is seen to be the heart of the home.

At Vesta Design, I believe in creating homes that encompass these ancient values, enhancing my clients' lives by producing sophisticated, well-thought-out interiors incorporating both beauty and practicality.
