OWNER & INTERIOR STYLIST
I’ve always dreamed of owning a business where I’d be surrounded by beautiful things, and where customers would leave feeling inspired, happy and satisfied – and in 2019 that dream became a reality!
Despite being very happy in my career as Decor Editor at House & Leisure magazine, I decided that it was time for a change, less time in traffic, and more time with my family. So I decided to take a leap of faith and buy Summerhouse from the Radowski’s in 2019.
My background in marketing and PR, coupled with an Interior Design qualification and more than four years at House & Leisure, made the perfect runway for my new role running my own textiles and interior business.
I love interacting with people and helping them make their decor dreams a reality.
Karen’s background in clothing importing and manufacturing has given her an incredible knowledge base regarding fabric and the trade as a whole. She enjoys following current decor trends and offers expert advice when it comes to combining different colours and textures.
Estelle’s wealth of experience is a major bonus for Summerhouse clients. She is warm and loved by our clients, as she always tries to find a way for them to complete a project within their budget.
Vee is invaluable to the daily operation of our store, as she makes sure the shop is always spic and span, whilst answering the phone and ringing up a sale when needed. All the while smiling brightly!
