all our clients receive the very best ingenious design scheme every time.
This position needs an all-round hero who has
a flair for detail, a skilled drill user and someone who can easily absorb and
interpret industry design trends. We’d like to welcome Jules to our styling
team who will be key to both our photography and CGI departments.
Jules, what interior design trends are grabbing your attention?
“I have always had a thing for retro and vintage pieces which I
love to combine with current trends to keep it looking modern. Currently I am still
loving the botanical trend, as a plant addict I love the feeling of bringing
the outside in. I also like the darker moody paint colours that are being seen
more and more, as seen in the Teal Tease blog.”
How do you keep up with industry changes?
“I have quite a collection of interior design books and magazines,
but these do date quite quickly. I find the most up to date source of
inspiration is from all the amazing people I follow daily on Instagram.
I am also a Pinterest addict! You can find anything and everything on
Lastly what is your favourite set you’ve styled so far?

A long-standing client
recently approached the Pix team to join forces for a high-status pitch
Our creative CGI department worked alongside Cardinal to create high quality visuals for the Manchester United store refit. The high
standard visuals gave the national company a strong portfolio to present,
establishing a competitive edge for the firm. CGI is a great tool to test and develop product without the
added expense of singular manufacture. Combinations are limitless testing
material selection, product design and aesthetic details. Our in house
designers developed the spatial design factoring in multi-use point of sale,
architectural restrictions and how the space would visually look from a

SV are proud to be part of the national initiative ‘Kit for Kids’.
Our location photography team have been
coordinating the national shoot, ensuring that every one of the 72 Football

their junior grass root stars of the future to visit their local team and meet
the current star players.
The mammoth coordination is ongoing, with
professional looking junior teams generating great publicity content which is

Statement islands will feature heavily in 2017, this is supported by
worktop technologies and the wide array of new worktop finishes entering
the market. Mixing is the name of the game: texture, thickness, height
and colour - anything goes. Open storage features are also a must in
your island design, stretch your creativity but keep it practical.
Use product creatively
A split level island is a clever way to reduce the appearance of bulk
without reducing worktop space. It’s also a nice way of softening the
transition from kitchen to a dining/living space.
Get creative with lighting and give your island that flouting feeling,
here we’ve paired it with a universal sliding doors system that adds
real drama as well as creative display.
Mixing Worktop textures create a real statement contrasting not only
finishes but thinness too, complimenting display features and
splashbacks both play a big part in this look.
Make a feature with contrasting kitchen fascias, you need to be bold to
make a statement it’s not the time to play safe…sometime more is more!
