Creative Director at Clara Bee. Claire has always had a passion for property and interior design and started renovating properties in 1995, initially her own, then helping friends with their property projects, working around being a mother to two daughters. She designs practical solutions that make the spaces work beautifully, and has built up a network of valued contacts with property and design professionals and contractors.
Over time the work became more formalised – new clients arrived through word of mouth recommendations and a formal business was created. Clara Bee Limited was established in May 2011.
