Local Interior Designer Funds New Xmas Tree Lights

Milford on Sea based interior designer, Val Plummer, who set up At No 19 Interior Design, is celebrating the company’s tenth anniversary this year by funding new eco friendly, energy efficient lights for the village green Christmas tree.

“I now work throughout Hampshire, Dorset and West Sussex, but I wanted to do something to thank my local clients who helped me when I started, and who have continued to be supportive in helping to develop my business over the past 10 years.

“As a way of saying thank you to them, and after discussions with the Parish Council, I offered to buy 2000 of the very latest LED technology tree lights. I hope they will provide a magnificent display for everyone to enjoy when the lights are switched on, on 2nd December,” said Val.

Val is passionate about all things to do with interior design and thrives on and enjoys any project that she takes on no matter how big or small. Her business, At No 19, has developed over the last 10 years to become a local success story. A testament to her success is that 80 per cent of clients are referrals and 55 per cent is repeat business.

The majority of her clients are individual home and business owners, property developers and estate agents, but other challenges she has worked on include a hotel, nursing home, Masonic function room, retail property and a retirement village of 58 houses in Devon!

When it comes to private homes she is happy to assist with everything from a pair of curtains, a single room or re-designing an entire property.

According to Val: “People are sometimes overwhelmed when they move into a home and discover what needs doing. I am happy to offer a free of charge consultation within a 20 mile radius of Lymington so that I can get to know new clients and have an opportunity to talk about the project and their budget.

“I get a real buzz helping people and providing them with innovative ideas that they might not have thought about, which do not necessarily have to cost a lot of money".

“Understandably, if they haven’t used the services of an interior designer before they are cautious, but I work closely with them and include any preferences or styles they like. I can incorporate existing furniture or provide a complete re-design tailored to their specific requirements.”

An increasing area of business for At No 19 is assisting clients who have purchased a property ‘off plan’ achieve the look they want. Val’s extensive experience in space planning and insight into the construction process of new builds, which is where her career began, has proved to be invaluable

Many people also choose this area to have a holiday home and this is an area Val has worked in extensively. Living remotely they find having an interior designer on the ground with a full team of trusted trades-people, who work to her own exacting standards, hugely valuable. Many testimonials on her website are testament to this.

According to Val: “Looking back over the past 10-years, there’s never been a dull moment and I’ve had some fun assignments. You just don’t know what the next telephone call will bring. I’ve done everything from transforming a very run down pet shop in Boscombe into a stylish contemporary travel agency to giving two static caravans on Carrington Park a facelift!"

“The most rewarding, however, was designing the interior for The Coates Centre, a new facility built in the grounds of Oakhaven Hospice to provide information and support to those whose lives have been impacted by illness.”

Whether building, buying, selling or updating a home or business Val offers her At No 19 clients a blend of creativity, close attention to detail, combined with personal friendly service.

At No 19 has been a positive success story for Val, who always looks forward to the next phone call or email bringing her the next new project.
