About Optimist


Leigh Davies

Owner and founder of Optimist Design

Before establishing Optimist Design I worked in the travel industry, teaching and exhibitions, and believe my earlier careers all influence the way I now work. A successful interior design project starts with inspiration, and I work closely with my clients to explore their ideas, styles and preferences.

Helping clients to realise their interior dreams involves listening, looking, exploring, sourcing, managing and bringing everything together to create beautiful spaces. It’s an evolving process and often a journey. It’s about visualising the bigger picture and at the same time being able to focus on the smallest of detail.

My aim is to create stylish interiors in which the homeowner feels their personality is reflected. When I’m working on show homes or home staging projects, it’s all about understanding who might live in a home in the future, and producing a look with lifestyle appeal.

No project is too small or too large, and I treat all with the same level of enthusiasm and dedication. Whether you’re a homeowner looking to improve or to sell, a property developer, landlord or estate agent, I’d love to work with you, so get in touch and let’s talk about your interior aspirations and how I can help you achieve them.
