Hello! Thank you for your interest in Chalk and Luxe, I hope you like what you have seen so far! I guess I should say a little bit about me.. I'm Vicky Crewe and I am an interior designer and home stylist who is obsessed with all things homes, interiors and exteriors, architecture and design. I have had a long held passion for interiors, probably since I was a teenager when my parents let me design my bedroom.. I can still remember vividly the excitement I felt as I stood in my newly decorated room with the aroma of fresh paint and that distinctive smell of brand new carpet. I spent hours matching the curtains to the bedding and selecting a wall colour that complemented both. Then whilst at university I persuaded our landlord to let me decorate our student digs, he may not have been so keen if he'd have known I was going for a Majorelle Blue and terracotta lounge and a vivid purple and lime bedroom (in my defence it was the late 90's, the height of Changing Rooms and Lawrence Llwellyn Bowen!).

After finishing university I flew head on in to a 13 year career in buying, a job I loved and which led me to travelling the Far East and India sourcing new products and visiting factories. If I'm honest though I was more inspired by the hotel decor and fascinating architecture around me, so after encouragement from my family I bit the bullet and spent a year studying for a diploma in Interior Design. This qualification gave me the confidence to offer my services to friends and family and from then on I started to get paid work from recommendations, so much so that I had to quit my day job and take on Chalk and Luxe full time. I guess you could say I have never looked back, I genuinely love my job and I get so much pleasure in creating desirable homes for clients, there is nothing more pleasing than clients recommending you to others or coming back to you with new projects. 
So, please get in touch if you'd like to chat about your next project!
