Alongside the shop Birdie offers a design consultancy service. Whether for interior inspiration or a complete design project, Birdie is always thrilled to share her knowledge of interiors and antiques. Her recent work has included large converted coastal barns, a hotel restaurant and various residential projects.
Birdie has a keen interest in interior design and decoration that has been developed and enhanced during her time training with Sibyl Colefax and John Fowler among others. She has been involved in an array of interior projects, many overseas, including sourcing and purchasing antiques to sit within interiors.
Birdie gained a reputation as a specialist antiques dealer of continental antiques and decorative art following her time with Colefax. She exhibited at fairs such as the Fine Art & Antiques Fair at Olympia and The Decorative Antique Fair in Battersea as well as fairs in the USA. The pieces she sourced, primarily in France and Italy, all had the same simple yet sophisticated look: being pale in colour and understated in form. This subtle style complements both traditional and more informal interiors and has been directly influenced by the coastal location of Birdie’s Burnham Market shop.
