Hello! I’m Claire Jordan the face behind C J Interiors, an interior designer and stylist based in Surrey.
My story, from being young I have always been a homebody, with a love and passion for home design, tactile textures, pattern and colour.
My dad a now retired electrician, DIY’ed everything in our family home long before Google and YouTube tutorials were invented. I was hands on, the best way to learn and then became hooked on the transformations.
At College I studied marketing, business, travel & tourism. Which then lead to many years working in marketing for innovative exciting companies including airlines, hotels, leisure, hospitality, event planning and land/new home sites. These roles allowed me to travel both the UK and the world extensively for business and pleasure. Living and working in the Middle East for 18 months. All the while gaining so much inspiration, giving me a good business foundation and many transferable skills.
I bought my first home a Victorian two-bed semi detached home, gutting it and learning as I went. That led to purchasing our current home in 2004 that has had many facelifts! including an extension in 2019 incorporating a downstairs kitchen/dining and social bar area.
Friends and family would constantly ask my advice and help with their homes and so I bit the bullet and retrained at college around my day job to qualify to gain a Diploma in Interior Design and Decorative Paint techniques.
I made the leap to set up and established my company, C J Interiors whilst on maternity leave. My daughter was born, closely followed by my son. I was able to work around their routines, taking them sleeping in their car seats and armed with toys and snacks to design homes. Now fully fledged teenagers I have never stopped since!
I live, sleep, eat and breathe design, a cliché but so true. I love all the aspects of design, I am always evolving and being inspired by everything in life.
I have truly found my passion and what I was meant to do and I’d love to help you.
