Don’t underestimate the power of interior design

With the property market finally back on track, make sure your house or apartment is sale-ready. Often, potential buyers can feel overwhelmed by any visible needed work (however small) or struggle to see beyond the current owner’s style when too much colour/pattern is used. To ensure full potential of the property is shown and to appeal to as many people as possible (as well as helping make rooms look bigger and brighter), stick to neutral colours with soft shades and limited patterns.
You may find a simple de-clutter, lick of paint on the walls and furniture, as well as a layout re-think, is all it takes. However, when replacements are needed, Inspired Interiors offers a wide variety of top-end custom-made furniture, curtains and upholstery (with numerous fabrics to choose from) as well as good quality “ready-made” items of excellent value.
Of course, you don’t necessarily have to be selling your home to redecorate; in this case, we encourage adding some colour and textures to give your home a sense of your personality as well as a ‘homey’ feel, working together to arrange a bespoke design scheme at a price that suits you.
With a full Interior Architecture and Design Bachelor’s degree from the UK and three years’ experience in the field in the Algarve, mostly in the renowned Golden Triangle area (Vale do Lobo, Quinta do Lago and Vilamoura), interior designer Joana Alcock was brought up in central Algarve and speaks both English and Portuguese fluently.
After designing the prestigious Fine & Country Real Estate office on the out road in Carvoeiro, alongside managing partner Zoie Hawker, which resulted in the office winning the award for best design of all the worldwide branches, the interior designer recently set up her own space located in the upstairs gallery of the estate agency.
