Do you identify with any of these issues?
• Looking to maximise what you already have and struggling to reconfigure it all
• Not got a clue how much a new bathroom would actually cost
• You know what style you want to achieve but can't figure out how to make that happen
• Scared incase a new interior scheme requires lots of trades coming and going into your home
• Don't know where to find unique, interesting or sustainable pieces
• Idea rich but time poor in order to execute the grand plan in your head
• Have dreams of an insta-worthy maximalist, pattern clashing, marble drenched abode and no idea where to start
• You know what you want but can't visual how it would look in your home
Let me help you.
The most popular request is for in-person, at home interior advice. This is available as an hourly service where I come to you and we identify the issues, discuss ideal uses and aesthetics and come up with the solutions 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.
If you need a more thorough approach, have a look at the Design Concept and Design Plan services.
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.

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.
