How to spacial plan and decorate your home

“Relationships are at the heart of great design; your relationship with one another and also your relationship with your home. As designers, we look for how our clients live, what they love and their lifestyle (interacting, relaxing, entertaining). During this session, you will learn how to make decisions for your home based not just on style, but on how it will make you feel and the impact that design can have on your everyday life.” Lauren Gilberthorpe

Lauren Gilberthorpe is a fully qualified interior designer and founder of Lauren Gilberthorpe Interiors – a full-service interior design company based in the heart of the Cotswolds. The company was established in 2015 following Lauren’s experience in running interior design projects for respected companies in London, the South West and Oxfordshire. With a focus on colour, texture and scale and an expertly blended mix of old and new, projects are approached holistically and based on total respect for the client’s brief.


Lighten, simplify and create space in all areas of your home and life

How to build resilience and grow in confidence to reach your potential

“Looking to build your resilience, positivity, and confidence in 2019?

Get crafty, free your mind and enjoy learning a new skill

“We all know that a sense of pride and achievement is a great boost to your wellbeing. Sitting down to take a break from your day-to-day routine, to do something completely different can benefit your mental health immensely. Together with Sarah-Jane, we have hand-picked a selection of stamps and accessories for you to play about with, release your inner crafter and get creative with!

I will talk you through the best techniques and also teach you how to emboss your stamped images, which not only look sensational but are so easy and satisfying to do! With our mini stamps, you’ll be able to jazz up to-do lists, stamp a congratulatory well done when you’ve achieved a goal, embellish household rotas or homework schedules. 

I am also excited to be sharing our new collection ‘Just A Little…’ greetings stamps with you. These can be used on the day to create notelets and cards for that personal touch for you to take away with you. You will even have your very own ‘Just A Little Thank You’ stamp with ink pad as part of your event goody bag!” Yve Grady-Crewes

Using stamps from The English Stamp Company, you will be shown how to customise your own diaries and weekly to-do lists whilst introducing a bit of creativity. Emily will also be introducing her new ‘Plan The Week’ notepad which has been designed especially for the event and will be included in your goody bag!
