Elaine spent 26 years working in the NHS and 14 years in Social Services. This included a range of senior Clinician and managerial roles. In 2011, Elaine left the NHS and ventured into Private Practice, establishing her own Company – DESIGNATE Housing Adaptations Interior Design & Colour Consultancy.
Elaine provides a UK-wide health-focused Inclusive Interior Design Service for people of all ages, who are currently well or are living with minor or major health conditions or injuries. Meanwhile, Elaine has helped previous clients with life-changing injuries such as spinal conditions and amputations.
As an inclusive Interior Designer and OT, Elaine’s expertise is décor, room layouts and space planning. From the initial concept and visualisation to installation and completion, Elaine works with her clients to create environments that are non-clinical and beautiful and stimulating instead.
With every client being bespoke, Elaine continuously designs unique spaces whilst ensuring they are suitable and cater to her client’s specific needs.
