Amy Shirlaw

practical, affordable interior advice and designs




Let me help you. 

My popular, practical, affordable service is Walk&Talk, Your Home Reimagined service.  

Working together in your home, we identify the issues, discuss use of the space and preferences and then come up with the solution and plan to make it happen. I come armed with tape measures, sketch pad, colour and fabric swatches and a whole bag of other tricks to help visualise, pull together or re-imagine your space, often solving many interior dilemmas on the spot. 

I also work with clients on specific areas and can provide a bespoke service based on your project needs, such as colour consultancy, furniture sourcing and floor planning. 

Drop me an email for a no-obligation quote or chat and let's make your home the lovely place you deserve! 



I get excited when I see interior design enhancing the day-to-day and I'm utterly delighted to do this as my job to help people enjoy, be comforted and feel inspired by their spaces.


Growing up surrounded by art, performance and history (my home town of Edinburgh is responsible for much of this, as well as my degree in History of Art and Museum Studies) has informed a lot of my aesthetic leanings, whilst my background in organising events and festivals - from marketing the world's biggest New Year celebrations, to coaxing comedians on (and off) stage - has given me a ridiculously good understanding of planning, logistics and why Excel Spreadsheets are my weapon of choice!


A few years ago I decided that the event world would survive without me, but the many, many interiors out there may not. And so here we are ... courses, learning curves and successfully completed projects later: Amy Shirlaw Interiors is here to help you with your next interiors project.

'Amy has transformed our bedroom from a piecemeal jumble of uncoordinated colour and mess, to a tranquil, beautiful space that I adore being in. She listens to your style and aims, and carefully puts things together. The end result is perfect.
‘Amy is a class act. When I first moved into my new house I asked her to come round for an in house consultation. She brings not just creativity and style to interior design, but she is also practical and down to earth.  
‘The idea of offering a remote design process sounded daunting to me at first but it couldn’t have been better. ….Amy was always there offering fresh ideas, new concepts, advice and putting my concerns to rest.’
'Amy has an uncanny ability to listen to our vague ideas and turn them into a range of colours and designs which are unique to us and we are delighted with’


 ‘Amy is great. She listened closely to what I wanted and came up with beautiful designs, helping us to source the items. She was aware of our budget and stayed within it; I’m delighted with the result and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.’



‘Hugely valuable design advice for my business from Amy, there is nothing she does not know about in interiors and is a pleasure to work with!’



‘I went from feeling exhausted, nervous and overwhelmed to confident and excited. The communication was excellent, the pricing reasonable and transparent and the results are astounding.’



‘I have never worked with an interior designer before. Luckily a friend referred me to Amy. She saw exciting, creative possibilities for a space that I saw as a dark, gloomy and boring. She generated options and I felt like I was getting a selection of real choices not a pre-packaged selection.’



 'Thanks for the much-needed kick start to us getting our redesign work under way. I'd really lost my vision and confidence so everything was at a bit of a standstill. Your fresh eyes and experience really counted; now we can get started with a clearer view to where we're going.’
