Steve Watling





Steve Watling - Interior Designer

Steve is recognised as the most creative member of the Furnish & Fettle design team. Having started out his career in fashion and merchandising, Steve moved to Yorkshire 16 years ago to study Interior Design at Leeds College of Art & Design.


Accommodating a diverse range of clients, there are two sides to this distinctive designer. Steve always aims for comfort and practicality in his designs, but also likes to introduce a touch of the theatrical, bringing together rich and colourful elements.


Steve commands an inspiring palette and believes beautifully grouped prints, textures and colours can bring interest and depth to a room to create a truly unique atmosphere.


Steve has faultless good taste and his stylish interiors are finished to perfection. Clients are involved at every phase of the design process and encouraged to use their own personal objects to help achieve their aspired interior.


“Interiors should be personal and the client’s own items take centre stage. I like to work closely with clients, listening to their ideas and being inspired by those well-loved pieces, to create an elegant and comfortable environment that reflects the lifestyle and taste of its owner,” says Steve.


While Steve has settled well into Yorkshire, he has a strong yearning for sunnier climes and when the British weather allows, he enjoys plenty of time in the garden. Steve is also a big Strictly fan and enjoys visiting the theatre.



“Expect a sense of fun with Steve and you won’t be disappointed, he has a brilliant eye for the decorative touches that just finish a room to perfection.”
