Alison Buchan-Grant


Alison is an experienced designer with a number of design-related qualifications under her belt. She has a broad knowledge across a number of design disciplines and a wealth of inspiration and technical ability to draw upon.

Alison’s background…

Alison has a degree in Fashion & Textile Design, and a Post Graduate Diploma in Clothing Technology – and she worked in fashion design for many years. This experience enriches what she is able to offer as an interior designer as it gives her a flair for colour, pattern and fabric plus an understanding of seasonal trends and the cultural and lifestyle aspects of design.

Alison’s experience…

Alison moved into interior design more than 10 years ago, and ran her own soft furnishings shop in York for many years, offering design services as well as retail sales of curtains, cushions and other soft furnishings. She closed the shop in 2012 to enable her to focus on what she does best – working 1-1 with clients as a freelance interior designer to create their dream interiors.

Services available…

During more than 30 years experience as a designer and retailer, Alison has worked on projects large and small, building up a substantial portfolio of happy clients; mainly because she puts customer service at the heart of what she does.

She believes in continuous development and keep her knowledge and skills up to date by attending trade shows, reading design media and working closely with other designers and craftspeople. She is also still a sucker for fashion!
