International interior design and renovation services in south of France

Are you thinking of buying and renovating a property in the south of France?

To finally create the holiday home you’ve been dreaming of?

Or perhaps you’ve already found your dream property but it needs a little renovation to really make it work for you, your family and your social life?

Perhaps the property needs a change of layout to bring out its full potential and you don’t know where to start?

Managing a renovation from afar can present several challenges:

– How to find a reliable construction company?

– Will communicating in English work?

– What about building and renovation permits?

-How do I make a drawing that the authorities accept and the craftsmen understand?

-How can I check that what has been decided is being followed?

If you’re also aiming for an environmentally sustainable renovation with local materials, it can be invaluable to have someone on site who is familiar with local resources.

My name is Maria Olofsson, I am a professional interior designer and I have lived in France for almost 25 years.

I have extensive experience of interior design and renovation projects for both private individuals and companies. I am very familiar with local regulations, I am fluent in Swedish, English and French, and over the years I have built up a large network of skilled and reputable builders and suppliers.

Professional pride among craftsmen in France is far more rare than in the UK, it is not easy to find professionals with the same standards as we are used to. However, there are some real gems and I have been working with them for many years. Upon request, I am more than happy to show projects that we have completed for satisfied customers and can also provide references of course.

Insides offers a package solution with interior design projects, quote requests and project management. Of course, we can also offer customised solutions if that suits you better.

Buying furniture locally means lower shipping costs for you as a customer, plus it guarantees a smooth installation, so that your home is furnished and ready when your holiday approaches.

Do you have a project? I look forward to hear about it, and your and your family’s vision.

I’ll help you create the home of your dreams.
