Jacqueline Fisken, Design Director – Jackie’s interest in interior design is deeply rooted. As a child she was intrigued by other people’s houses – not just expensively furnished houses but those which, for whatever reason, had a great atmosphere. It was this fascination that drove her to become an interior designer in the first place.
She continues to be obsessed with pulling together those crucial elements that make a house wonderful to spend time in and in creating that feeling in the homes that she designs for her clients. Harnessed to more than 25 years experience, this brings individuality, creativity and practicality to every project. A loyal international clientèle appreciate that each room will be tailored to reflect their personality and lifestyle. It is an ethos that permeates throughout Ampersand ensuring that each project receives an inspiring, personal service.
Jackie is a Member of the British Institute of Interior Design and a BIID Registered Interior Designer®.
“…the woman who creates the most gracious drawing rooms…one of Scotland’s true tastemakers.” Scottish Woman
