About Nicola Mitchell

Having been bitten by the property bug from a young age, my first memory being that of choosing a kitchen for my family in my early teens to the endless hours of watching all those make over shows and property location programmes my desire in design was born.

My background in property has stretched from becoming an Estate Agent involved with helping to achieve many individuals and families find their dream home to the other end of becoming a Property Developer with the project to refurbish and create comfortable homes to let and live in.

The concept of home is so important to us all especially in the busy world we live in and the stressful lives we all lead and this led me to study Interior Design at the Interior Design Institute, following this with continued study at Staffordshire University. With my previous knowledge in property this course has opened and confirmed my vision and belief that we all deserve a home that reflects us as individuals, makes us happy and one where we all enjoy time spent there.

Along with the understanding of the struggle and stress of trying to sell a home whilst being in the estate agency arena, I discovered the art and uses of visualisation to help clients view their home from a buyer’s prospective. This led me to study with the CHSPP to become a Home Staging and Styling Property Professional certified member. This has become both interesting and enlightening to help assist clients by moving their homes on in the market place to achieve sales and maximise potential purchasers to view and improve final price of sale.

Design concept

We all have different tastes just like our personalities and should a contemporary design fit some individuals a rustic country charm may reflect others, your home is a personal design statement as in an outfit you would choose to wear. With the need for our homes to encompass all our requirements of a busy life from playroom, home office to teenage chill pad and with all the choice of materials on offer Desired Designs aim to create the ideal space for your home, lifestyle and property and more importantly your family.

My aim is to offer a professional and friendly consultation to ask what you like in style and the life you need your home to fit and reflect whether it be family needs, entertaining or maybe you are not too sure and require a hand with some advice?

From advice to achieving the space you desire to:

  • Home staging to advice on creating the vision to sell the home
  • Sourcing particular interior items
  • Concept designs to completion
  • Interior and exterior innovation – garden and outside spaces
  • Decluttering to maximise and gain more space in your home
  • Christmas staging – too busy for decorating that tree!
  • Party ideas both inside and out – able to advise ideas or work along client’s own vision to create a lasting memory
