Uniquely different interior design.
V A Heritage was born out of Alexis Nicolaidis's love of old buildings. It is an interior design practice which pushes boundaries in a modern way whilst respecting the past. It is the love of the craftsmanship that adorns our period and listed properties which tells a story and remains dear to our heart that drives us forward. It is what makes us want to care for these old treasures but also what makes us want to incorporate period detailing into newer properties, creating something uniquely different and completely personal to you and your residential and commercial properties.
All buildings excite us - old, new, residential, commercial, stately homes, holiday homes, offices or restaurants - our approach is always the same. We want to get to know you, the real you, the person you want your property to reflect and we want to couple this with understanding what makes your building special and one of a kind. We want to know what stories your period or listed property tells us. We lovingly respect them, we work with them and ensure that whatever makes your building special is retained whilst injecting your personality into it and adapting it to modern life. When it comes to newer properties, we bring a uniquely different perspective to it by adding elements of the past, blending them with contemporary pieces to create harmony and interest.
If you are embarking on a project we would love to hear from you.
Our Clients Matter
"Alexis was completely professional in her approach to a rather complex project. She was wholly charming and patient throughout and was a delight to work with. We would recommend her highly, without reservation."
David and Sue, Harrogate.
"When I approached Alexis with my "I kind of know/don't know what I want" brief she just smiled and offered to help. The style sheets provided were easy to use, filled with inspiration and links to great products.
Alexis is fun to work with and is really creative, I would highly recommend."
"Alexis is very talented, creative and focused and always available on the end of the phone. Her patience with us was amazing. She acted as our interior designer providing guidance on our interior décor.
It was a pleasurable experience dealing with Alexis from start to finish. We look forward to starting our next project with VA Heritage soon."
"Alexis gave us a beautiful design for our living room. She gave very detailed ideas, with a real flare for interesting design whilst taking into consideration our more classic taste. She sourced all of the ideas within our budget and gave us a clear view of where to find all of the items, very thorough. I would highly recommend Alexis”
"She was a delight to work with and really wanted to understand me as a person and then translated this into her designs. She has a talent for pulling out things that you didn't even know you liked and used this to create a truly unique and personal home. I would recommend Alexis to anyone looking for a professional and personal service."
“I asked Alexis to come and give me some inspiration for my sitting room. She is very approachable and easy to chat with. She asked me for any thoughts I had or if there were any significant items I would want to be part of the scheme. Alexis had some innovative ideas and maintained constant contact, ensuring that her ideas and planning would suit my needs and provided me with the sitting room to complement my home and lifestyle.
Thank you so much Alexis. I really appreciate all your time and inspirational design.
I would happily recommend Alexis anytime.”
