A Passion For Interiors…
Based in Norfolk, Suffolk and London Chameleon Designs, is a local hidden gem that you may not have heard of before, offering a combination of strong dynamic design and creative skills. Our aim is to ensure peerless project co-ordination whilst exceeding client’s expectations in design, innovation and level of service.
The business started 10 years ago and was solely based in London, but in recent years we have increasingly had requests from clients in Norfolk, Norwich, Suffolk and East Anglia. Having completed projects in Norwich, we have decided to open an additional Norwich Office to best serve our clients in the region, offering a highly personal interior design service.
What makes us different….being creative with acoustics
Our creative designer, Emile Azan is a member of the British Institute of Interior Designers, the regulatory body for Interior Designers in the UK, as such we select the best suppliers and materials for each client and their budget. We can advise on what’s needed before any of the major work gets done. We transform interiors by providing architectural layouts, detailed finishes, lighting solutions, and soft furnishings and attention paid to the acoustics of all rooms we work on.
A client may have a problem with one room or a whole house and, whether it’s a domestic or a commercial project, we look at the space, how the client uses it, and what they want its functionality to be. It’s a visual and practical science – it’s not just about colours, furnishings and curtains.
Part of the job is, of course, to keep abreast of changing trends. Acoustics is an issue to some extent. In offices, schools, restaurants, pubs and hotels, the trend is for hard surfaces with no soft furnishings – making it harder for anyone with hearing difficulties to relax and enjoy the surroundings.
There are lots of materials now available to designers to minimise the ambient level of noise in both commercial and domestic interiors. Sound has a strong influence on how you experience rooms. A room without any acoustic treatment, such as acoustic panels in the walls, or softer flooring, has a long reverberation time; noise is amplified and speech is difficult to understand. On walls, textured acoustic panels, made of materials such as wool or polyester, and nearly invisible, can help to diffuse sound. Floor options like cork, or under-floor products that help acoustically, also make a huge difference.
