TO those interested in increasing their knowledge, meeting new suppliers & expanding their contact base in the European market.
Your interests, styles and preferences are taken into account for your personal itinerary.

ABOUT YOUR TOUR GUIDE
I’m a practicing interior designer with 25 years of experience sourcing for homes, developments & hotels. I work with fine artists, skilled craftsmen and distinctive materials in order to produce exquisite and custom-made solutions.
VISITS & EXCURSIONS
The tour can include visits to boutique hotels, artisan workshops or suppliers producing the latest contemporary furniture, lighting and fixtures.
Each Design Tour is tailored to be a unique experience based on your schedule, interests and requirements.
Using my knowledge, experience and network of contacts, I have created a tour service aimed at professional/semi-professional Interior Designers, Design Specifiers and Property Developers.
I currently run tours in London, Milan, Florence and Como but can also adapt to the region or city that you are most interested in.
LOCAL CUISINE & HISTORICAL PLACES
Along the way, we will take lunch or dinner at historic restaurants, cafes and trattori, whilst enjoying the scenery and architecture that gives the city or town its unique character.
Try delicious local produce, wines, cheeses and delicacies to echo the culture & region.
Inspiring, unique and personalised Design Tours that are organised to your brief. These tours are focused on connecting you with local suppliers, craftsmen and vendors based on your personal interests and preferences.
The aim is to expand your knowledge on local product, suppliers and vendors.
VENDOR & SUPPLIER CONNECTION
The purpose of the tour is to connect you to new sources of design materials and craftmanship.
Sourcing can be regional using local materials, craftsmen and trades, or national suppliers who import materials from other parts of Europe. The aim is to connect you with the company, marble yard, supplier or craftsman that will suit your current or future projects.
