Vanessa grew up surrounded by fine art and antiques, her mother’s passion, and a father who was always looking for the next refurbishment project.
She began her career in London as a Fund Manager before following her creative ambition and training as an Interior Designer.
She studied initially at KLC School of Design and subsequently at University of the Arts, majoring in Architectural Interior Design.
Prior to setting up Estervan Interior Design, Vanessa gained experience in London working for a subsidiary interior design company of Richmond International, which specialised in the boutique hotel sector.
Moving to rural Oxfordshire to raise a growing family, she then worked for a Cotswold interiors practice specialising in luxury private residences.
