About Amersham Interiors







The Designers.

Business partners Ailsa and Wendy both have creative backgrounds. Ailsa holds a BA honours degree in woven textiles and a diploma from the Interior Design Institute.   Working both in the fashion industry as a designer and buyer for some of the largest fashion retailers in the country and then in interior design, means having a wealth of experience in fabrics, colour and texture combined with the knowledge of how to make them work together for great effect.

Wendy also spent years in the fashion industry learning about fabrics, colour and style and how they work together in so many ways for a variety of effects.  During this time she developed a passion for interior design while being asked to work privately on various interior design projects and creating beautiful schemes.    Over time Wendy found she had a talent and liking for working with contractors who would implement her interiors schemes which covered the range of buildings trades and Wendy was then able to carry out complete projects from conception and design through to installation.

Working with contractors can be challenging and many people find it a difficult experience.  However, for Wendy & Ailsa it is something they enjoy and Amersham Interiors have access to a range of tradespeople who respond well to exacting requirements.   Implementing a full interiors scheme can include all the decorating trades as well as finishing trades such as curtain and blind makers and fitters, flooring installers and bespoke cabinet makers to mention a few.

Ailsa and Wendy at Amersham Interiors can design, coordinate and install an entire scheme for you or just supply the fabrics and wallpapers you need to do it yourself.  The choice is yours, so feel free to visit the Amersham showroom and discuss your thoughts in an environment where you will have a huge range of fabrics, wallpapers and ideas to provide inspiration.


Dear Ailsa,  I am writing to let you know how pleased I am with the curtains you organised for me. From our first discussion, you worked extremely hard to find the right fabrics which not only met my requirements but my budget as well. Your entire service from the beginning to end has been faultless and I would have no hesitation in recommending Amersham Interiors in the future.

I thoroughly recommend Ailsa and her team at Amersham Interiors. We had an armchair and footstool reupholstered and cannot fault the professional, friendly advice and service we received. The only problem we have now is that the whole family wants to sit in the chair! 5- stars!  Best regards.

I have been using Amersham Interiors for many years to help with the interior decor of our last three houses. The company changed hands a while ago and due to the service I had always had from the previous owner decided to continue with the new owner. ! have no regrets.  Ailsa and her team work well together. They are friendly, helpful and patient. I always have an idea in my head regarding fabrics, although not always able to give much direction! Ailsa soon understood exactly what sort of fabric style would be appealing to me and what wouldn’t.

They were able to change direction when I flitted about until I was absolutely sure that I had the perfect fabric for my curtains. They were always quickly responsive to messages I left on the Phone or by email. Overall, I would rate them very highly – 5/5.  I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Amersham Interiors.

After years of denial due to a ‘phobia’ of domestic decorating upheaval, it was high time we put our own personal touch on the whole of our downstairs living area. With both of us working full- time, our requirements were demanding. We needed someone who could inspire us with oodles of creativity; someone who could quickly come to terms with our budget constraints and always work within them; someone who had such outstanding project management skills, that we would be able to sit back and watch it all unfold painlessly. Amazingly, Wendy exceeded our expectations on all counts. What creativity! What empathy! What a big stick she must use to shepherd her team of outstanding craftsmen! On time, every- time!

We could not have been more delighted with the finished result and how we got there is all down to Wendy.

Hi Ailsa, I am thrilled with the new blind and curtains – they have completely transformed my office! Thank you for the care you always take. It is much appreciated

Facing the prospect of having to curtain and accessorise an entire
five-bedroom house, we approached Amersham Interiors having been somewhat
underwhelmed by the suggestions that we had received from other interior
design companies.  Ailsa was quickly on our wavelength and tapped into our
likes and dislikes immediately. She produced wonderful ideas that
complimented our furnishings and décor.  We are delighted with the results
of her hard work, which has given each section of the house its own
particular style and character, the fabrics and accessories chosen bringing
together all the various elements within each room.  Ailsa and her team made
what we had seen as a daunting task an enjoyable project and we would
unhesitatingly  recommend Amersham Interiors.
