Thrifty Interior Designs describes itself as an interior stylist that can redesign and upcycle living spaces, giving them a new lease of life.

Wyona Berman-Thomas, director at Thrifty Interior Designs, said: “Having recently divorced after a 30 year marriage, I had no choice but to use charity shops to purchase second hand furniture.

“One Sunday afternoon, the thought dawned on me to start upcycling that furniture, giving it a new lease on life”.

After telling her story to friends and colleagues, interest grew and her services were soon in demand.

At the same time, Wyona gained a Diploma in Interior Design and Decoration, which has further enhanced her ability to aesthetically transform living rooms with a bespoke budget in mind.

Thrifty Interior Design focuses on clients who just don’t have the time, inclination or foresight to enhance their living spaces themselves.

Wyona added: “Our role is to help you get there with our input and to take the stress away from you whilst allowing you to come home and just unwind in a much deserved comfortable and relaxed setting.”

Wyona, who came to the UK from South Africa 19 years ago, said Thrifty Interior Designs offers a telephone interview, followed by a free initial client consultation, and then a second free client consultation is set-up, after which stylists will prepare a decorating plan around the client’s budget as well as the client’s contract.
