Inside your homes: Daniela Folkes
Daniela Folkes’ kitchen and dining space sits at the heart of her beautiful Georgian property. Showcasing an expertly curated selection of timeless designs, we visited to see how great design can come together to create a welcoming and practical home.
We really do love seeing inside your homes - everyone has a completely different eye for design and the unique ways in which you style your spaces always leaves us filled with inspiration.
Last year, Daniela Folkes used our personal shopping service to help with choosing the perfect pieces for her new kitchen and dining space. Excited to see how the spaces turned out, we were welcomed into her beautiful Sheffield home for a little look around…
Daniela had this to say about her home…
“We had recently renovated the kitchen and dining space within a Georgian house and were very mindful of getting the balance right between preserving the feel of the original house, with its many quirky features, and adding some modern design features from brands and designers we love such as Vitra, Eames and Kartell.
Given we had chosen a handmade wooden kitchen painted in bold colours, it was also important for us to select the right lighting and furniture colours that toned well with this. Durability and practicality were also important considerations as we have young children, pets and a generally busy house full of people!
Our research prior to contacting Nest involved leafing through interior magazines/brochures and using Pinterest etc. Thankfully, our Nest advisor Ashlee was able to visit our home to personally view the space which was invaluable when it came to helping us choose the right designs and products.
Ashlee listened to our preferences and requirements for lighting, seating and dining every step of the way, taking into account how the space would be used and provided us with an excellent choice of products.
The items we purchased from Nest beautifully compliment the overall feel of the house with perfect bursts of colour and noticeably stylish shapes and designs that look, feel and work well.
I think we now have a welcoming space that also elicits a “wow” reaction from people seeing it for the first time! Ashlee’s consultations were invaluable in creating this wow whilst also ensuring we didn’t select furniture that overpowered the room or created an overly stylised interior. The overall effect is very much in keeping with the Georgian period but with an undeniably modern twist.
The beautiful kitchen now makes the rest of the house look in need of a refresh and we will certainly be using Nest again to help us redesign our living room area.”
