The award-winning interior designer shares what’s new at Knox Design

  1. Since our last meeting in 2020, what has changed at Knox Homestore? 

During the pandemic we continuously worked on improving our service and efficiency for our clients. I used the time to do various online courses and seminars that I wanted to do for some time. We are now a very productive and efficient team all working under one roof. We can be very thankful that at Knox Homestore we survived and thrived. 

  1. We hear you’ve earned a certificate in estate agency – congratulations! What does this mean for your clients? 

As an interior designer, I work very closely with my clients to understand their preferences and aspirations. They are not often physically on the island so I make decisions on their behalf. Gaining this certificate in estate agency means I can offer a highly personal and tailored property search service that takes care of every aspect of creating a holiday home in Mallorca including the post-purchase reform and design. The whole nine yards! 

  1. What do you wish more people knew before buying a property in Mallorca? 

Many people are naïve when it comes to purchasing property in Mallorca, unaware of the paperwork and red tape involved at all levels. This is where I can provide a lot of assistance, dealing with lawyers, notaries, town councils for permits, and selecting reputable trades people for the refurbishment. I speak Spanish fluently and understand what is involved. From finding the right property to reforming, furnishing and decorating it, I can guide the clients through the process and make it stress-free. 

  1. Tell us one thing about Justine Knox that very few people know. 

I am a very sociable person and spend my day surrounded by people, but perhaps most people don’t know that my best moments are spent soaking in my hot-tub in a corner of my garden with a good book and a glass of wine in hand. Bliss! 

  1. Any new projects on the horizon? 

I always have lots of ideas and projects in the pipeline. Right now, I am focused on developing the Knox Homestore, the Justine Knox Design services and getting started with the property search service. I have also been designing some bespoke furniture pieces for my clients recently and there are always other things that come my way which keeps my job fresh and exciting. 

  1. Can you impart any final words of wisdom for anyone new to Mallorca? 

This is a magnificent place to live, but do not be deceived: island living can be costly, and buying and renovating a house here is a complicated task. Choosing the right people to advise you in whatever project you might be considering is critical to a stress-free life. You need to find someone who is highly experienced, speaks the local language and that you can trust. I can promise this will make the process faster, easier, enjoyable and hugely exciting. |
