I am a self-taught practical modernist interior designer. My passion stems from my lifelong love of architecture, interiors and travel and I get my inspiration from the countries I’ve visited combined with my love of nature. I am also a self confessed homebody which helps me to understand my clients need to want to relax and chill out in their homes.
Originally from Australia, I’ve lived in London for over 10 years. I began by blogging my experiences about my learnings while refurbishing my own home in West London and client homes. You can read more about the blog called Laidback Living here – http://www.dorisleeblog.com/.
I’ve created many different and varied looks but my personal style leans towards a modern contemporary feel fused with rustic and industrial touches. I love to include artisanal & hand-made pieces into the interiors I design. I am also a wife and mother to a growing son, which helps me keep it real and inspires me to create spaces that are not only aesthetically interesting but also stylishly liveable with a strong practical element.
I believe in a collaborative approach and work closely with my clients to understand their practical needs, mixing this with décor styles and ideas they love to create a real ‘wow’ factor within any given space – from one room to an entire house.
