Each year we take on several work experience students from local colleges and schools, asking them to select a ‘fantasy’ project they’d like to work on. In the past they’ve ranged from redesigning bedrooms, living rooms and even student accommodation.
We’ve recently had student Izzy Hayes on a two week work experience placement. We’ve been really impressed and taken with the challenging project Izzy chose to undertake – redesigning The Hambledon (our favourite homewares and fashion store in town), and turning it back into a house.
We love the fresh and bold design boards, which have added a bit of extra colour to the office along with Izzy’s enthusiasm!
Here’s what Izzy has to say about the project; and check out her fantastic boards below. We think she has a fab design career ahead of her!
“I spent my time at Etre re-designing the interior of a shop, The Hambledon into the perfect house. I ordered samples of tiles and materials and used Pinterest to find furniture and furnishings. Each one of my rooms had a slightly different style but overall I wanted the house to just be minimal, comfortable and light, I was really pleased with the results. Everyone at Etre is so lovely and I loved my work experience!”
