1. Being invited to 10 Downing Street

"This has got to be top of the list!" says Laura. "It’s not very often an email lands in your inbox from the Downing Street Office inviting you to come and meet the Prime Minister after all." 

In 2019 Laura and Diana were invited to 10 Downing street on International Women's day. "We really enjoyed talking to Theresa May about our business and how we're also supporting women in our industry."

2. Being the first interior design company on TV

"This was another big 'pinch me' moment." says Diana. "We started advertising on TV at the end of 2019 and seeing our ad for the first time on TV was a surreal moment - especially as we're the first interior design company to do so."

It's been a great way to get our message out there and reach new customers who have felt that hiring an interior designer wasn't an option for them. It's been a huge success for us and so it won't be long before we're back in the studio filming our next!

3. Being interviewed live on Sky news

"This was a completely terrifying experience." jokes Diana. "We had prepared all our answers only to find that the reporter asked them the wrong way round so there was a fair bit of improvisation!" 

Looking back though, this was such an incredible opportunity to talk about My Bespoke Room, our business model and how we've disrupted the industry. "So would we do it again?! Absolutely."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Moving into our first office - the Beach Hut!

Even though we work on designs across the country, Bournemouth is where we call home. Seeing as it's on the coast - it seemed only fitting that we took up residence in a beach hut! 

"Having our first office to call home was a lovely moment as we got to share it with our amazing and growing team." remembers Laura. "We couldn't wait to start the design process and put our MBR stamp on it."

5. Designing for the stars

2019 was a fun year for us in terms of getting to design celebrity homes - we worked with not only a TV presenter but also an international supermodel don't you know!

Supermodel Jourdan Dunn's home was a special project as it was her first home and in West London where she grew up. "It was so important to us that her home reflect her wonderful personality." says Diana. You can see the entire home reveal here.

Jasmine Harman's home was a first for us in more ways than one - it was our first vegan home which was a fantastic challenge we gleefully took on! We're currently working on some additional rooms in her home too, so stay tuned for the room reveals!

 

6. Becoming award winning

"It's a special moment to be recognised for your achievements and so the awards we've won over the years have been memories that have always stayed with us." says Laura.

We won our first awards in 2015 for Best in Service and Best in Design on Houzz. We've won every year again since and even rank as the no.1 Interior Designer on Houzz (out of 10,000!) We're also proud to be the most reviewed interior designer in the UK with an incredible 4.9 star rating! 

 

7. Growing our community of designers

We couldn't do what we do without our incredible in-house team as well as our community of freelance designers. 

"I remember the moment we hired our 10th designer. It felt like such a landmark moment and a reflection of how fast we were growing. The community that's formed amongst them has been a joy to be a part of. Everyone is so eager to help others out and share their tips and ideas."

We're close to reaching 50 designers today and are itching to finally get everyone together again later this year!
