The Interview

NAME: Julie Paterson
JOB TITLE: Senior Interior Designer

Q: What’s your department like?

A: Our department is creative, fun and very very busy! Working on a wide variety of interior design projects for our hotel clients and our Houseology customers keeps our day-to-day varied and really interesting - there’s never a dull moment!

Q: What’s your favourite thing about coming into work in the morning?

A: The variety of projects we have in the studio means that each day is always different which I love! From working closely with our clients, attending design team meetings & site visits and creating presentations, to designing, sourcing and specifying products and materials for projects, there are lots of different things to think about.

Q: If you could do another Houseology job for day, what would it be and why?

A: I’d love to spend a day with the Graphic Design team learning new Photoshop tricks a from our team of design wizards.

Q: What’s one thing you have learned since working at Houseology?

A: I’ve learned that successful projects are the result of the combination of the skills of each of the people on our team and this can’t be underestimated in ensuring the best possible final design.

Q: What are you up to when you’re not in the Houseology offices?

A: I love reading and walking - and there's nothing better than spending a Saturday afternoon pottering around vintage furniture sales and charity shops looking for interesting finds.

Q: What’s your favourite thing on the Houseology website?

A: My first favourite product on the website was the Innermost Origami table and I also love the Design House Stockholm Rock Chair.

Q: How would you describe your own home’s style?

A: Mostly Urban but with a few vintage pieces.

Q: Do you have a favourite piece in your home?

A: I have a vintage chest that is one of my favourite items. It’s well loved and a little bit bashed, with the initial WF on it - one of my great charity shop finds!

Q: Houseology wouldn’t be Houseology if…

A: It wasn’t for the great team behind it.
