Celebrating the achievement of her first six months at Banks Mill is KE Interiors founder, Katherine Brookes. Katherine started her Banks Mill journey earlier this year in May and it has been a pleasure to see her business grow.
Katherine has had a passion for art and design from a young age, and she has continuously pursued it throughout her studies. Katherine is well-versed in the worlds of creativity, fashion and design, having taken Art GCSE and then a GNVQ on her way to a University Degree in Fashion. Her brilliance was recognised to the point that her final collection was picked for The London Graduate Fashion Show.
Beautifully constructed made-to-measure curtains, roman blinds, pillows, and luxury furnishings are available through KE Interiors bespoke design service. Each project is meticulously planned, managed, and implemented with great care. Working predominantly in Derbyshire and Staffordshire, the design business takes a great pleasure in working on jobs ranging from tiny cosy settings to big restoration and refurbishment projects.
KE Interiors has spent the last six months at Banks Mill, and throughout that period the company has continued to boldly develop and remain busy. Katherine originally worked from home, balancing family life with her individualised skill; converting her lounge into a studio; and then having the confidence to relocate into Banks Mill. Katherine comments: “Having the space at Banks Mill Studios has been great for the business but mainly for my sanity. To have a place of work is great for a better mind set”.
Having a base at Banks Mill has not only given the opportunity to build connections and friendships with like-minded individuals; but has also given a secure space for Katherine to work and grow in confidence and inspiration. Katherine has hopes of advancing the furniture side of her business to help it grow and develop further and Banks Mill will continue to support and guide her to allow her to continue to develop her distinct creative style.
