The Care Home Interiors Company is a multi-award-winning, family run business offering an exceptional design and installation service.

We’re passionate about interior design. It’s in our genes. Since 2001, the Southern family has operated an interiors business at our Woodlea base in Medstead, Hampshire.
 
In 2017, Kerry Southern-Reason decided to specialise in residential care home interior design and installation – driven by her genuine desire to make a difference to residents’ lives. The Care Home Interiors Company was born.

Our Design Approach

We know that there isn’t a one size fits all solution to a care home interior. We work hard to meet your project objectives, always keeping the needs of your residents and staff in mind. Whether working with architects for new build projects or designing to the floor plan of an existing building, our goal is to enhance the lives of those who will and work there. You will never find repeated schemes in our portfolio. Designs are tailored to every individual project – expertly transforming your space into a beautiful and practical home that you, your staff and residents will be proud of.

COMPANY HISTORY

#957568

What started as a curtains and soft furnishings business for the buy-to-let industry, nearly 20 years ago, grew into an interior design and installation service for the buy-to-let, serviced apartment and hotel industries.

Originally created by Penny Southern and Simon Martin, the business supplied the curtains and soft furnishings to Grant Bovey’s Imagine Furnishings, and other clients including Foxtons and the Olympic Village in London.

The business evolved in 2008 when Penny’s daughter, Kerry Southern-Reason, founded Vivid Living – a brand which developed a reputation for excellence.

Vivid Living’s portfolio spanned show homes, high-profile and high-end interiors and care living, winning several awards for its work in these areas.

In 2017, Kerry decided to specialise in residential care home interior design and installation – driven by her genuine desire to make a difference to residents’ lives.

Since those tentative beginnings in 2001, our business has evolved into the market leader it is today, now enjoying an enviable reputation as the premier choice for the design and delivery of truly outstanding care home interiors.

COMMUNITY WORK

Giving back to the community is something that The Care Home Interiors Company is passionate about. Our chosen charity is St Michael’s Hospice in Basingstoke, Hampshire. Our original founder, Penny Southern, whose huge influence still runs through our company to this day, was an in-patient at St Michael’s Hospice in 2017 where she sadly passed away that year. The hospice is a charitable trust which receives only 20% of its funding from North Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group. The remaining £3.1m annual running cost comes from charitable donations. We donate furniture and other furnishings to St Michael’s hospice, and make regular donations of fabrics and design materials to local colleges and schools.
