Profile


Ideas Interiors is an established Interior Design Studio based in the heart of Lancashire, and our client geographic stretches from The Highlands to London and further afield in Europe. 
Over the past 18 years, Ideas interiors has built an enviable reputation and although the business has evolved, Ally Houghton has purposely insisted her Company has remained small and personal, ensuring her clients receive her undivided attention. Unlike larger Practices, Ally makes sure she is personally available to every client, and sees every project through from concept to completion.  

Ally has no typical project or client, simply, every individual or family is different and therefore her approach and flexibility is the key, adapting her skills to every taste and trend.  On meeting Ally her warmth and friendliness is apparent, and her passion for design is immediately recognized.  Ally spends a great deal of time with her clients, listening to them to establish ‘Their Need’ and working together with her, their ‘Dreams’ and her ‘Vision’ translate into a reality of beautiful yet practical spaces.


The studio houses an extensive array of designer Fabrics and Wallcoverings to suit every taste – whether it is one roll of Wallpaper, a metre of fabric, tie-backs, or trimmings you require, Ally is always readily available to guide and assist you through your selection process – feel free to call to arrange a visit !  

Ally works very closely with her committed and reliable team and personally oversees every step of each individual project – from measuring windows, working with her workshop team who bring her creations to life, and attending  personally on the ‘fitting day’ to add her finishing touch when her exquisite designs become reality.     

Whatever her involvement, Ally’s warm and friendly personality together with her calm and patient manner ensures that your ‘Design Journey’ with her is informal, exciting, relaxed and most certainly not rushed – her time is your time.  Clients requirements can vary and no matter how big or small your project might be, Ally and her team are on hand to give as much or little support, with the same attention to detail regardless of scale or budget.
