A small Interior Design consultancy spearheaded by Claire Beckhaus, which combines professional enthusiasm, creative flair and true dedication to creating practical and inspirational interiors to achieve the best possible result for our clients.
Designs for Living was founded by Claire Beckhaus, a Chelsea School of Design trained Interior Designer. Claire is passionate about art and design and has a great love of Italian Renaissance Art and vintage furniture. Claire draws her inspiration from her European travels as she spent a considerable amount of time living and working in Paris, Barcelona and Trieste in Northern Italy.
Influenced by European design, Claire’s style is often described as eclectic, drawing on the history and heritage of each property she likes to mix classic with contemporary to create unique and inspiring interiors, combining the elements of shape, colour, light and texture to create mood and ambience to reflect her client’s individuality.
