Multi award-winning designer, Natalie Du Bois, founded Du Bois Design in 2007. Her bespoke design practice is founded and focussed on creating kitchens, bathrooms and interiors that are completely ‘in tune’ with her clients. Each of her designs is unique – aesthetically, practically and ergonomically aligned to the individual and the space it occupies.
“My clients may not know what they want when they first meet me. My job is to ask questions and to understand exactly what they are asking for and what will make them happy. This is why I make every job different, created specifically for the individual.”
