Lyn Holland has spent a lifetime working with colour, texture & pattern. She originally trained at Bath Academy of Art where she studied sculpture & then later moved into textile design. The hand knitwear business that she ran during the 1980s & early 1990s was very successful in the UK, Japan & the USA. During this period she also lectured in many of the Arts disciplines including textile design, drawing & painting & history of architecture. It was then just a short step to interior design which combined all her skills & passions. That was 10 years ago, & now, many projects later, Lyn is offering her experience & advice through ECLECTICA.

Our fees for home consultations

For clients who live in the Clevedon/ Weston-Super-Mare/ Bristol area there is a fee of just 35 for an initial home consultation of approximately 1 hour. This first visit will enable Lyn to look at the room in question & discuss with you what is required, your tastes, ideas & aspirations. Whatever the project, be it a cloakroom or a ballroom, Lyn will be pleased to assist & will present her suggestions & design ideas with sketches, paint charts, fabric samples etc. Scheme boards can be provided if required.

For clients who do not live within the area there will be an additional charge for petrol & travelling time.

To enable you to carry out Lyn’s recommendations ECLECTICA has a tried & trusted team of curtain makers & track fitters. We are also able to recommend decorators & paint effect specialists. Curtain poles & accessories, carpets & flooring are also available through the shop. If you decide to proceed then your fee of 35 will be refunded from your purchase of fabrics or wallpapers.

Free services

If, however, you only require curtains or wallpaper & possibly need some help with your choice & style Lyn is often in the showroom to assist with the bewildering array of pattern books. She will also measure & produce estimates if required & this service is free of charge within the local area (with the additional cost of travel if further afield). Alternatively you can telephone or e-mail measurements for an estimate. We offer a prompt & efficient service with curtains usually finished within 4-5 weeks.

Larger projects

Examples include new properties or complete refurbishments. These are charged at an hourly rate.

Our commitment to you

Whatever size the project we aim to provide a high level of customer service & each individual project, no matter how small, is important to us, so please feel free to visit the shop, e-mail us, or ask for a consultation with Lyn.
