I have undertaken freelance administration,development of family trees and web based research for over 10 years and can turn work around quickly and efficiently. I am a proficient user of all Microsoft packages and use the internet as a research tool. In addition I also run an interior design practice, Lyne Design and can easily produce colour and fabric schemes, sample boards etc.
Lyne Design was founded in 2010 by Sarah Bolshaw who began her career as a textile designer in Como, Italy before returning to London to work in the fashion industry for household names like Paul Smith, Nicole Farhi and Simon Carter. After fifteen years in the industry she moved into the world of interiors and started her own interior design and decorating practice, Lyne Design.
Sarah works mainly in the South West and specialises in residential projects.
Sarah works across the interiors spectrum from colour and fabric schemes to the renovation of an entire building. Whether you are looking at cosmetic refurbishment or simply moving a stud wall, she will help you make the very best of what you have through imaginative space planning and creative design.
Sarah will sit down with you, gain a good understanding of your lifestyle and determine in exacting detail all your needs and aspirations. She can either, implement and project-manage the work required, or design a scheme and leave the rest to you.
Lyne Design provides a "concept to completion" interior design and decorating service including these essential ingredients:
Hand drawn floor plans, elevations and sample boards
Integrated colour, lighting, furniture, curtains and upholstery schemes
Supply and supervision of trades
Area Covered: Administration, Web based research and interior design - mainly in South West England
