Hi, i’m Jo Griffiths and I have been married to my husband, Justin for 5 years. We have a lovely little girl Phoebe who turned 4 in March, and another bundle of joy on the way in September. We have lived in Shifnal for 7 ½ years and we love the community feel.
My business is ‘With Love Interiors’ which I began in May 2013 after having been made redundant at Easter. I had been hatching my plan to escape from the daily commute to Birmingham for some time, and my redundancy was just the push I needed to set up on my own!
Having worked in the Interior Design and Soft Furnishing industry for almost a decade, it made sense to use the business relationships that I had and establish my own company. Most of my clients are homeowners who are keen to add a touch of individuality to their homes. I am able to supply bespoke curtains, blinds, upholstery, wallpaper, paint, rugs, lighting and other accessories. Sometimes, I am asked to provide one simple item such as a Roller blind for a cloakroom window, on other occasions I work with clients over a longer period of time, and design schemes for entire homes. I love building these sorts of relationships with my clients and really getting to know their sense of style!
I thoroughly enjoy my job, and I love visiting clients in their homes to see what their style is and how their lifestyle influences the look of their homes. How you feel about your home can have a real effect on your outlook, I love the thought that I help my clients to feel more comfortable in theirs, and that their homes become a better reflection of their personalities. Getting a client’s positive reaction to a finished project is fantastic.
My biggest challenge currently is promoting the business to get the name ‘out there’ by keeping on top of my social media activities!
Going forward I am building relationships with local shops, such as the local carpet shop and a bathroom showroom, meaning that I am able to offer my clients a much stronger, more rounded service.
I discovered Bizmums whilst searching online for suitable networking groups when I first started up. I really enjoy attending the groups and love meeting all the other women out there working hard building businesses whilst juggling the demands of family life!
