About Lally

I established Lally Walford Interiors about 15 years ago, having worked in the interiors industry since early 2000. I grew up in an interior design environment – my mother has run a successful interior design business since before I can remember – and, having worked for a few years in London at an advertising agency, I decided to train properly in interior design and commit to what I suspected that I had always wanted to do. I have worked in London, Sydney and North Yorkshire and, following our move to Scotland in 2005, have established a wonderful, loyal and ever-increasing client base both here and further afield.

Over the course of the past 22 years I have worked with a large and varied number of suppliers, tradesmen, architects and specialists in Scotland and beyond. I have got to know a core team of these partners well, particularly in southern Scotland, which helps me to bring increased efficiency and breadth of knowledge to my projects. My trade accounts with a large number of UK and global fabric, furniture and lighting suppliers and designers, keep my offering up to date. I have access to, and generally use, a very wide variety of sources on all my project work. I am trained in the making of bespoke soft furnishings which has proved an invaluable skill when working on the detail of projects.

My team and I are committed to providing clients with a dedicated personal service and aim to create homes and offices that stand the test of time and provide pleasure and enjoyment for many years.

Having entered into this refurbishment project with no little apprehension, I’m delighted to say that I "struck gold" with Lally and her team. She brought a "good eye" and much energy to the project.

I was not able to visit the property at any time during the process but notwithstanding, Lally provided regular updates of progress and was extremely responsive to all queries. All projects have snags but Lally was able to suggest practical solutions and workarounds where applicable.

Really a superb project manager and interior designer. Edinburgh Client, 2021

Lally was incredibly professional and efficient, but also very warm and personable. She has a passion for interiors, lovely taste and great ideas but also listened carefully to what I wanted and seemed to have an extraordinary knack of understanding exactly what I like which resulted in a very personal and lovely scheme. I would highly recommend her. Alexandra Orr, Edinburgh

I was fortunate to meet Lally after rebuilding an old farmhouse…..She is very professional, organised, thoughtful, hard working, excellent communicator, ultra reliable and extremely pleasant and I can highly recommend her. After an initial couple of visits, we worked via email which was efficient for us both. The project was completed on time and on budget . I am very grateful for all Lally’s superb work.

Lally Walford Interiors takes all the hassle, stress and mess out of the process and deliver a finished product that is always beautiful, right down to the smallest detail. Nexus Creative Space

Lally came highly recommend to me by a great friend who had sought her advice in the past. I realised instantly upon first meeting that she was very experienced and knowledgeable in her field, I very quickly gained confidence in her and her suggestions, she had the vision, insight etc that I lacked. Meriel Macdonald

From the start Lally was efficient, quick and fair in getting good prices for me. She narrowed down the minefield of choices to an appropriate few and worked easily with my team of tradesmen, bringing in her own when needed. Camilla Warre

I am so pleased I asked Lally for help and ideas. She listened carefully to what we were looking for and gave us professional drawings for the most beautiful room. Thank you so much I would never have achieved the same end result on my own. Vanessa Wood

We recently worked in partnership will Lally for a client in Edinburgh. She was extremely helpful throughout and a real pleasure to work with. Sculleries of Stockbridge

Lally has been thoroughly professional throughout, totally “got” what we were after, and even managed to keep within our budget! Her colour choices have been perfect – she advised ones that we would never have been brave enough to go for without her say so and they look amazing. Can’t recommend her highly enough! Dr Watson

Lally has helped us turn our rather neglected Edinburgh town house into our dream home. We are absolutely thrilled with the results of her hard work. Claire Torrens

Lally dealt with everything from planning layouts, submitting the application for listed building consent, drawing up electrical rewiring plans and liaising with her team of tradesmen. We would thoroughly recommend employing Lally and would definitely commission her to work on another project for us in the future. Edinburgh Client

It has been a pleasure working with Lally, from beginning to end we were on the same page. Professional and efficient and with a wealth of great suggestions and ideas, I had complete faith in her ability throughout the project.
