Tamara Jane Interiors – Practical interior Design and Decluttering Service in London & Home Counties
We have all been there. Right? We keep procrastinating about decluttering rooms in our home. We know that we need better living space and do not need all that stuff but we just do not have the will to get rid of stuff. There could be an emotional connection or even a sentimental value. Our young growing family do not want to get rid of old toys, shoes and clothing or even magazines as it comes with several memories. We seek the assistance of a professional interior decorator but we do not think we have the budget for it. Too expensive right?
Here is some good news if you are in Hertfordshire or surrounding areas. Please speak to Tamara Hall. Tamara is the founder of Tamara Jane Interiors, a bespoke interior design and decluttering service that provides solutions to transform your home, work place and life. Tamara provides practical solutions that gives your home or office the right look, the perfect accessory or a simple storage solution that brings happiness and energy into an area. Herts Review was able to grab a few minutes with Tamara to get more insight into the business and her aspirations for the future.
Tamara Jane Interiors started 5 years ago providing services targeting everyday people and families, high street stores and offices. Working with a range of budgets, the service includes decluttering; reorganising cupboards and storage solutions, working out what is staying and creating a space that reflects the clients personality and needs. The company also designs and decorates bedrooms, living rooms, play areas, lounge, home office space, high street stores and commercial offices using traditional methods. “The importance is to offer a service that fits various budgets. One minute I could be working on a children’s play area and the next minute I could be designing a CEO’s office. I love the variety and the challenge it brings to me”.
After 18 years in a rewarding visual merchandising career working for some of the leading high street brands including Selfridges, Tamara set out to work for herself as she has a young growing family and it will be impossible to carry on a career which required travel away from her family. “I wanted to work for myself and build a business around family time doing what I love best – design, interiors and decluttering. It is always great to bring a personal touch to each project. So far I have done projects in a CEO’s home and office, shops, beauty salons and an American food company amongst others.
Operating from her base in Stevenage, she covers most locations an hour away and has assembled a strong team of handymen, decorators and other tradespeople needed for a variety of jobs. “I work on both big and small projects at the moment. I am hands on and a doer. The happiness and energy clients get from our service is fulfilling and keeps me going. I am a people person. Since I started this business I have only not closed 2 clients after our initial meeting which means I pretty much close a deal most of the time. It is a combination of empathy and reassurance that makes me a good fit for most clients. Our service is not expensive but not cheap as well. We make every project fun rather than a chore”.
Tamara is just happy to be back out there providing solutions to her customers. The first 3 months of the covid-19 lockdown was extremely challenging. “As I work in people’s homes it was difficult. There was not a lot going on. Thankfully I had some of my old clients that needed other services. I had to do virtual meetings with my clients. While I am thankful it is not the same. I love being out there”. The company has some repeat clients and gets a lot of business through recommendations.
Tamara Jane Interiors is positioning itself to attract more regular clients. “We are doing more online marketing to attract more clients especially higher ticket clients. Also there is a strong demand for the decluttering service so we will be promoting this as well. In hindsight, we should have promoted the decluttering service a bit more when we started. We want more people to feel they need our service”.
You can feel Tamara’s passion and energy. While she is looking to expand the business, she will always be at the heart of everything going on in the company. If you need a personalised decluttering and interior design service contact Tamara here.
