I am a South London based interior designer
I am the founder and principal designer of Jonathan Charles Interior Design Limited. I have over 30 years’ experience in the Interior Design industry.
As soon as we started working with Jonathan, it became apparent that he was an extremely professional interior designer. He is very knowledgeable in all aspects of design. He is innovative, creative and has a really good understanding of how to organise all other works like electrics, plumbing and carpentry, etc. This meant that we were able to leave it completely up to him to not only design our new kitchen, but take care of the removal of the old one and the entire installation of the new one. So for us, the whole refurbishment project was completely hassle free. It was carried out very closely to the original budget Jonathan set. We would highly recommend him and his company for any interior design projects.
My career as an Interior designer started with designing the layout and functionality of retail spaces. Subsequently, I set up my own store -an interior furnishing store in the heart of South East London.
Following that, in 1982, I formed my first interior design business. Ultimately that business evolved into the current company. During those years I acquired a wide range of design skills. In the end, I formalised my Interior Designer credentials by completing the much respected Rhodec International Interior Design Course.
As a result, this diverse background in project management and formal training equipped me with a wide breadth of creative and practical skills. Above all, it has provided me with the expertise needed to collaborate with the building trades and the soft furnishing industry throughout the whole of Interior Design process.
However, whilst my approach to Interior Design evolves, my belief that there is no ‘one fits all’ process remains a constant.
For me, the process of interior design should focus on the needs of my client -you. I want to know about your lifestyle and your aspirations for your home. With that in mind, we can start planning the creation of a space that will best fit into your way of living and your budget.
With that in mind, wherever possible, I will introduce you to ideas you have probably not considered before. This could be a lighting plan that enhances the design, a modern tech improvement or a orLike lighting that would enhane a concept which in my view, is fundamental to professional Interior Design.
