Placefortyeight is the creation of Katy Wilson, a blogger with a passion for interiors travel, beauty and life with my family, Paul, Lila and Theo.
Following a complete renovation of her house in Derbyshire, Katy wanted to bring all these passions to one place in the form of a Blog featuring interiors & interior styling, gardens, travel, fitness & lifestyle, fashion & beauty, motherhood and food.
Katy will be hosting Workshops in the newly renovated house and an E-Styling service to create your perfect interior space.
I have always had a keen eye and creative outlook and have a real passion for interior design so when we had the opportunity to extend and renovate our home I was able to channel all my ideas and create a unique home for our family.
I created an account @placefortyeight on Instagram to document the build and the renovations and people really responded to what we were doing and my style and I was increasingly asked to help people in their own homes from advising on a whole room change or simply styling advice.
Having looked around I couldn’t find an affordable design service that had a similar aesthetic to me that also provided both interior styling and events styling and felt there was room for me in the market. With my E-Design service I want to offer a combination service to support these homeowners or renters.
Primarily, I want a room or a space to feel comfortable and have a soul – I’m not into pretentiousness. To achieve this I like to use a mixture of vintage furniture mixed in with newer pieces and luxe materials like velvets, marble and brass. I really like to play with scale – an oversized mirror or lamp shade or layering rugs to make a room cosy. I'm also a fan of panelling and have used it in several styles throughout our remodel with various colours and textures.
Being in the age of social media with emails being a primary source of interaction, e-design saves an awful lot of time. Over on my services page you will find a “Get Started” tab. This provides a selection of areas to choose from along with some fun questions about your space and helps me understand your goals for the room. I then work with this information and return to you a full E-designed space
