Home Staging is the art of preparing and presenting a property for sale or let as attractively as possible so that it moves quickly and for top money on the real estate market. Home Styling is the art of re-designing an existing space that needs an uplift or a re-style for the current owners or occupiers. Home Staging usually costs less than the first price reduction and as many people are not able to visualise empty spaces or see past current owner’s possessions a property needs to be ‘dressed' to portray the best image possible. After stepping through thousands of front doors working in the Property Industry, 15 years as MD of my own successful Letting and Sales Agency, I yearned for a change of direction. I wanted a new career path where my design skills and eye for detail could really be implemented and where I could enhance a property’s potential and ultimately value for the owner and so The Style Counsellor Ltd was born. Most of us want our homes to be warm and comfortable, inviting, clutter free and appealing to others but we’re not always able to achieve this ourselves or sometimes even to imagine that space or lifestyle. Some homes are empty, new or have become dated or even neglected over time. Some people are fearful of change, some are worried about how much it will cost to make those changes and some openly admit that they just don’t have a clue where to start or what goes with what. That’s where we can help. Here at The Style Counsellor we will inspire and create a beautiful space for you. Whether that’s a redesign of one room that’s become a little tired, staging a whole property for sale or rental or it’s supplying fabulous furniture for a new development show home we can create that lifestyle image and in turn create the desire to live in that space. There are so many properties crying out for some love and inspiration to help them become someone’s dream home. Let us save you time and help make your space more desirable than your competitors, contact us today.
She's done it again! 5 Stars
As you may know from my previous review, Angie came and helped me last year by doing a report on how I could improve my home as I was in a rut and toying with the idea of maybe moving. Her report helped enormously and I implemented the things she suggested that I could at the time.
Well I have finally decided it’s time to move and so I made the decision to put the house on the market. Now I’m very embarrassed to admit that I’m a self-confessed hoarder and by no stretch of the imagination could anyone call me a “neat-freak”. I’ve lived in the house for 20 years, so there was 20 years worth of clutter and “stuff” in every room. So I set Angie what can only be termed as a huge challenge to help me get the house fit for sale and she accepted. Huge challenge it most certainly was and Angie definitely rose to it. First she researched and found me storage, then she helped me declutter, and lastly she staged every room. She worked her socks off, there was a lot to do (understatement). The house now looks bloody amazing, and I couldn’t be happier. It was worth every penny and more, the most worthwhile investment I’ve made. The estate agent was so impressed we upped the asking price. Check out the before and after pictures on her website and you’ll see what I mean.
She understood that it would be pretty overwhelming for me, so rather than do it all in one hit, she split it into 2 sessions. She was so understanding of me and she made it a fun experience too, we laughed, a lot.
In summary, I can’t recommend Angie highly enough so if you’re thinking of moving, or you just want to improve your house, then Angie’s definitely the woman you need to help you do it

Thank you Angela
Angela came to help with the design of our living room. We have had our house renovated and really need to put some style and personal touches back in to it, but I was struggling to find the ideas or the energy to actually do it. Angela spent time going through the details of what I do and don’t like, looking at colours and material and wallpaper samples together as well as understanding what the room was for and how we wanted to use it. Angela is very easy to chat to and full of enthusiasm and passion for what she does. She went away and put together a mood board which is spot on. It has given me the motivation to get on with it. I’m a week on and have ordered the paint samples, bought some new art work, have the fabric swatches ready to order a new sofa and have cleared out a load of the clutter. Thank you Angela
She’s a genius
I was in a real rut with my house, and just didn’t know what to do with it to make it better. So I got in touch with Angie, she came and had a look around, and gave me some great ideas on how to make it better and show it to Its best advantage. I got a full written report that I could keep and refer back to which was so useful.
She has a real talent and flair for interior design and staging, I can’t recommend her highly enough
Thanks Angie, you’re a star ⭐️
