The inaugural Inspire Cambridge, presented by Velvet Magazine launched at Quy Mill Hotel & Spa, alongside the well-established Cambridge Art Fair last month.
Inspire Cambridge, sponsored by John Lewis Home Design Service, Sworders Auctioneers and David Hall Kitchen & Furniture Makers, attracted thousands of visitors and a wonderful collection of exhibitors in the home, property, food and drink industries from across the East of England region.
Thank you to our wonderful sponsors and exhibitors and to all those who came along to support the event. We look forward to developing the event for 2019 so that it attracts even more fantastic independent businesses from across the region.
We are pleased to announce that the John Lewis Home Design Service is sponsoring Inspire Cambridge, presented by Velvet Magazine.
The John Lewis Home Design Service- based locally at the Grand Arcade store in Cambridge, turns interior design dreams into reality. From single rooms to whole house projects, the service has a team of experts ready to help.
In need of interiors inspiration? Whether you're refreshing one room or rethinking your whole home, the John Lewis Home Design Service can help with free style advice or an in-depth design consultation.
The Home Design Stylists offer two types of appointment. The first is a 90-minute in-store session that focuses on how to update one room by altering a few key pieces. After working through your ideas in store and getting a sense of your style and budget, the Stylist will offer suggestions on everything from flooring and curtains to finishing touches. At the end of the appointment, you'll leave with a personalised shopping list of all the items you've chosen together. Your Stylist can also place any orders or collate your selection of items fo you to take home on the day.
If you're looking to completely revamp up to three rooms, there is the option of an in-depth, two-hour home visit during which your Stylist can get to know your living space. After the visit, you will be invited back to the store for a 60-minute follow up, at which your Stylist will present a digital mood board of ideas and a shopping list of items for a personalised design scheme. They will also place any orders, send out samples and arrange measuring appointments if required. This in-depth design consultation costs £250, which is redeemable when you spend more than £1,500 through the Home Design Service.
Both of these appointments can be booked online at johnlewis.com/homedesignservice or pop into John Lewis Cambridge and speak to one of the store's four Stylists: Sandra McCall, Jane Gaylard, Sheena Middlemass or Philippa Northon.
Or simply visit the John Lewis stand at Inspire Cambridge from 27th to 30th September!
