Funky Little Darlings is an award winning interior design company specialising in designing exclusively for children. Established by Mandy Colliss and David Quinton in 2006, our ethos is to create beautiful, inspiring interiors that are loved by parents and children alike. Having designed for children for most of our careers, we absolutely love creating environments that encourage children's creative development. From the nursery through to bedrooms and playrooms, our designs expand to teen bedrooms and into family spaces within the rest of the home too.
As experienced interior designers, we offer a range of interior design services allowing you to use us as much or as little as you need. From Mood Boards and On-Line Design through to our Fully Managed Service, we have options to suit each family’s individual requirements and budget. Our goal is simply to create stylish, memorable spaces filled with character and warmth and always to exceed expectations. Our in-depth interiors knowledge ensures your child's room not only looks fantastic, but it's practical as well as functional, with longevity built into the design. We can design bespoke furniture and accessories to suit a room as well as source products from around the world to ensuring that each project as a unique, personalised finish. Whatever you need, we can help you create modern luxury living.
We’ve worked with families and children on all kinds of spectrums and understand the needs of parents to provide, engaging, stimulating and super functional rooms for their children. In our experience, these often make for some of the most uplifting and rewarding projects to be involved on.
Life before FLD
Before starting Funky Little Darlings, we had careers in the children's toys and computer games industry, where we have designed for the BBC, Disney, Hasbro and Endemol and on global brands such as Monopoly, Teletubbies, In The Night Garden, Playskool, Action Man, Big Brother, Purple Ronnie and Sindy. Here, we gained valuable knowledge of the safety elements critical in children’s design which we carry through to all of our projects.
In addition to our interior design services we have an on-line interiors boutique selling a hand picked collection of the finest designer nursery, children's and family furniture from leading international manufacturers, all curated under one brand. We search far and wide to add treasures to our collection and we only work with designers who, like us, believe in offering outstanding design with second to none quality. We are passionate about finding that special something which will make your child’s nursery or bedroom not just a room, but the most stylish room it can be.
