‘GO TO’ Interior Design Shops in the North West
Interior design shops in the North West in this blog cover a range of finishes but not all. I will return to this topic in a further blog. The recommendations will get you started on the right track when changing your interior, buying a new home or renovating an existing home. Time and again I return to these 'go to' shops when I am looking for interior design products. I love having expert help & advise on hand when I need it and with these retailers this is all part of their service. Once you have your ideas for your interior sometimes practical help is what is needed and it is on hand…….
