I'm Chloé. An interior designer based in Orford, Woodbridge on the beautiful Suffolk Coast.
I offer a range of services across Suffolk, London & Essex to suit individual needs and budgets, working on projects big and small. From a new colour scheme to refresh a room, detailed floor plans, 2D & 3D drawings through to complete home renovations.
If you are further afield I offer virtual design services. You can find out more here.
Working with me
I work with clients who are looking to create homes that will be enjoyed for many years to come, with a focus on designing spaces that are reflective of those who live there, and are driven by personal style rather than trends.
I love to champion the use of pieces sourced for local makers and crafts people, independent stores and vintage items sourced locally in Woodbridge, Suffolk and across the UK. I also look to purchase directly from ethical companies around the world who directly support the makers, along with brands who focus on outstanding design hand in hand with their environmental and social commitments, such as those certified by the B Corporation.

Interior Design Services
From putting together a colour scheme giving you the confidence to get started on creating your new look to project managing the redesign of an entire home, I work with family homes, second homes and with businesses to provide beautiful feel good spaces that look great, function well and are designed to be enjoyed!
My design services across Suffolk are tailored to suit a clients needs and include
Design Concepts, Moodboard & Colour Palette
Putting together an initial concept and moodboard to give you a feel for the design along with the colour scheme and chosen paint and finish recommendations.
Materials Recommendations & Sample Boxes
Materials recommendations for use throughout your project with advice on application. Samples provided where possible, to guide you on the finished look and feel of your completed space.
Spatial Planning, Floorplans, 2D & 3D Visuals
As part of a design or as a stand alone service, detailed floorplans, 2D & 3D visuals to help you with the layout and visualisation a space. This service can be particularly useful when purchasing a new home, working with floorplans and your own items of furniture to give you a good understanding of the use of the space.
A favourite for second home owners, Batteson Studio can oversee the project management of your work from organising quotes, overseeing contractors, planning applications and installation.

Working With Batteson Studio
All potential projects will start with an initial call to understand your project needs and how Batteson Studio can assist you, ensuring we are the right fit for one another.
We will then arrange a follow up visit to your property and ask you to complete a design questionnaire to understand the project in more detail. A design proposal will then be provided.
If you are happy to proceed with the design proposal then I will get to work on your new look, with all timings and milestones set out in the initial design proposal.
Regular updates will be provided in line with the scale of your project and as agreed in the design proposal.

Batteson Studio's Design Ethos
Interior design is of course about creating a new look but here at Batteson Studio I strongly believe that we can do so whilst being mindful of the impact of our design choices. Creating environments that reflect us as individuals rather than following the latest trends ensures that a design lasts far longer than any fleeting trend led look.
I am a big advocate of using secondhand items and for choosing quality pieces that are built to last. Regardless of personal style, a gentle balance of old and new adds depth and character to a space and is an opportunity to give an interior real individuality.
Sustainability goes hand in hand with the principles of biophilic design, a design practice encouraging connections to nature in our built environments through the use of natural materials, biomorphic shapes found in nature, and nature inspired motifs to name a few. Here at Batteson Studio this is a key consideration with my designs, with even the subtlest suggestions of nature bringing a sense of warmth and connection to a space.
