Amazing business spaces

by Catherine Muir Interior Design

...business spaces that feel good and work beautifully 

You have your vision and you know what you want to create for your customers. You probably already have an idea of the business goals, values and brand. But turning that into an interior space can be challenging.


During this process we will discuss your vision, but we'll also look at...

...how do you want your customers to feel in your space? 

and, how must the space function for you?


I really think your surroundings can have a huge impact on how you, and your customers, feel and act. That’s why I say, I’m not just an interior designer – I'm a mood maker.

You see, I can help you set the tone of your space. Creating atmosphere and giving it personality to

       inject a little wow!


a converted chapel in County Durham

There’s nothing I like better than creating a space that people love to be in… somewhere that makes you feel-good. And with the skilled practitioners at TayloredFit Physio in Langley Park I knew this space needed to embody that feeling. The interior of this old chapel needed to be completely renovated so I worked with the architect, builder and owners to create a brand new space. A space that reflected the brand, felt calm and reassuring, and really does have an impact on how you feel as you enter. 

My client said, "Catherine has been absolutely invaluable in helping us plan the interior of our commercial premises. She takes time to understand exactly what the brief is and expertly and professionally comes up with ideas and suggestions we’d not even considered or thought about. She also is able to source items that we would never have found ‘on the high street’. Thank you so much Catherine, we love working with you!" 


a new build in Durham

This serviced apartment in Durham needed to invoke a feeling of calm, a 'home away from home'  feeling. The target market is very varied, from families visiting students, to traveling work teams. It was a new build set of apartments so I had to work with the build team, installation team and owner to bring this apartment to life. With very comfortable hotel grade beds, a generous lounge space and a functioning practical kitchen, this space just makes you feel good!

My client said, "Catherine clearly set out the stages and costs in advance, and took on board my comments whenever I had them. She not only did the design, but she also did all the purchasing and staging of the flat, and worked really well with the relevant people on site. She was very committed to getting the project finished on time and to make sure it was just right. I would recommend Catherine very highly."


My client owns several student properties across Durham and we are working together to update them all. We have researched what has and hasn't worked well for students in the past to ensure the design works well for them. We have included details such as magnetic plastered walls to allow the students to decorate their own space. Each bedroom has fitted furniture and we work together with the kitchen company to design the kitchen to meet the current regulations. 

My client says, "Catherine and I have worked together for several years now to work through my properties. Catherine designs the scheme and then works together with my team to install all the finishes, furniture and accessories."
