DISCOVER OUR STORY
Hi I am Jess, Owner and Founder of Design Inspired By You. My home studio is based in the rural village of Southwick in Wiltshire. You can actually see Westbury White Horse from my studio window! I live with my husband, our two girls and adorable bunnies. I am definitely a country girl, but I love that the beautiful City of Bath is close by for design inspiration, home stores and great coffee shops.
Where it all began
A passion for creativity and design has always been a huge part of what I do in life. Even as a child I was doodling in my school books. So naturally I went on to pursue this passion in higher education where I studied graphic design with illustration. Years later I went on to work in retail management and visual merchandising. Always focusing on the visual impact, during my in management I won the award for best charity shop interior in the UK. My skills in customer service and styling went from strength to strength but I dreamed of more for myself. In 2017 when creating my own wedding stationery I found so much online but I was completely overwhelmed and wanted to work with someone I could talk to. I was looking for something more personal that was artistic, elegant and simplistic at the same time. This reignited my passion for design and I started creating stationery along side my job. In 2021 after having my second baby I decided to take the plunge and do what I love for a living. It was also important for me to be around more for my girls. My background in customer service and passion for design is where Design Inspired By You was born.
