thatssocool is a London based interior design studio bringing inspiration direct from the best of the UK and international design shows into real homes. We can provide you with ideas and mood boards through to a shopping and install service or entire renovation project management. We are experienced at home staging if you are looking to sell or rent your property as well as creating killer interiors for Airbnb hosts. And to top it all off we have close links with an excellent, reliable, creative, intelligent, good looking builder - my husband Dan!
thatssocool aims to provide exceptional, unique design tailored to our client’s requirements, whatever your budget. We’re here to dispel the myth that an interior designer is only for the super wealthy. In fact, if you’re in any doubt as to whether you need an interior designer or not then take our quiz!
thatssocool started life as an interior design blog in 2016 created by Donna Casey. Donna began writing the blog initially as her creative output whilst she remained in her full-time ‘day job’, however, it soon developed into a unique source of design inspiration. Whilst working, she undertook two Interior Design modules at Chelsea College of Art UAL, as well as assisting an established designer to gain work experience within the industry.
In September 2018, thatssocool was officially launched as an interior design studio and Donna has been advising, transforming and styling properties since then.
Here are some (not very) fascinating facts about Donna;
She was born and raised, as were both her parents, in Notting Hill, London - and she still lives there
She has never worn any makeup - ever
She worked in the film industry for over 15 years (here’s my IMDB page) before deciding she was more passionate about interior design
Her daughter is named after a character from the classic 90’s movie Point Break
Her biggest regret is seeing Kurt Cobain in the street at a time when he was her absolute idol - and not talking to him
She hasn’t owned a television since 2004
She has no tattoos and no piercings - not even her ears
She is a qualified rescue scuba diver
She has been vegetarian for over 20 years
She is nuts about interior design and really good at offering help and advice to others
