Tucked away in a converted barn just outside Winchester, Individual Interior Design offers a treasure trove of fabric swatches, wallpaper, furniture and accessories in a cosy studio.
The company also has a Bournemouth showroom, but from its Winchester base near Wonston it offers interior design services for private and commercial clients across the south east.
“I started my career as a lawyer in London but was always mad about clothes and shoes. I have a whole room at home dedicated to my collection of over 200 pairs of shoes,” says Maxim’s Boutique owner Rachel James.
