Born and raised in Wales of Estonian descent,
Helmi Vaga is an established British interior designer,
providing online interior designer services
throughout the USA and worldwide.
Working from her own interior design studio,
Helmi is based in the UK, where she lives and works
in her family home - a beautiful 16th century country
house on the borders of Wales and England.
Helmi’s interest in interior decoration and design
started when she was quite young and her artistic
flair, plus a good eye for design, developed at an
early age. Like most teenage girls she spent a lot
of time re-arranging her own bedroom where she
first got the idea to train as a professional interior
designer. To enable her to achieve her dream Helmi
studied art at A Level, a Diploma in Fashion and Design at art college and went on to qualify at diploma level at the prestigious National Design Academy (USA and worldwide).
Helmi has gained considerable experience by applying her flair for interior design into creating beautiful homes for her family to live in. Her inspiration comes from being true to the period of the houses she has lived in and applying her skills and her own sense of style to create beautiful, comfortable, family-friendly homes.
Helmi has been inspired by many well known interior designers and she admits to having a soft spot for the British TV presenter and interior designer Laurence Llewellyn Bowen. His sense of glamour and quintessential English poshness (not a real word - but it describes him perfectly) brings a sense of humour and pure class to his work.
Helmi likes that!
The style of Helmi’s own family home is a fusion of different design styles within a period property. Helmi has retained the original 16th century architectural features of the house and introduced glamour in the master bedroom, a rustic country style in the reception room and has given the family rooms a more contemporary look. Helmi believes that this eclectic mix works well in a period property - the open fireplaces, oak floor and wooden beams lend themselves to a contemporary approach where old meets new and this is 'the style’ for the 21st century.
The difficulty for many people is knowing how to achieve the right blend of styles and this is where Helmi’s approach to interior design excels.
