The Decorcafe is like no other members club. I have been a member of The Decorcafe for 7 years and I love the passion and encouragement both Debbie and Emma bring to the network. They are collaborative and really care about every single member and how best they can support you. I found growing a business daunting as there was so much to learn but by attending the Decorcafe events I have learnt the skills I needed to grow my business with confidence and in a creative and authentic way. The events are educational and inspiring with guest speakers that are experts in their field as well as an essential moment to connected with like-minded creative professionals that are truly supportive and welcoming. I would highly recommend this network as It’s been invaluable over the years and a real joy to be a member. I am proud to feature on the Decorcafe expert pages.

I've been a member of The DecorCafe for over a year and I feel very grateful to be part of such a supportive and friendly business network; Debbie, Emma and Fiona have created a very special community. They are always collaborative and willing to help, while also giving you a push where they see you need a little help. The sessions and events they run are so informative and creative, as well as being relevant to independent businesses. It's always lovely to connect with the other members, learning from each other and finding ways to collaborate. I would highly recommend joining this wonderful group.

It's been an uplifting experience joining The Decorcafe community. Over the last two years I've met some extraordinarily talented individuals who have expanded and nurtured my love of the creative industries. With many members also being small business owners, the network is an invaluable support for some of the challenges... and celebrations that being a sole trader brings. The programme of events is exceptional and I've benefited from learning some wonderful new skills, brushed up on some of my technological ones, and enjoyed many friendly conversations with a glass of a glass of prosecco in my hand. It's warm, collaborative and inspirational, I highly recommend joining!

I am delighted to have found the Decorcafe. I had been looking for a supportive Business group for a while before I found The Decorcafe through another member. I wanted a group that understood interiors and didn’t just offer general advice. The Decor Team are very welcoming and knowledgeable. The networking opportunities are great and I’ve met some very talented designers in person and virtually! The private business members hub provides invaluable resources and advice on how to grow your business.

I've been a member of the Decorcafe Network for a number of years and have enjoyed being a part of this friendly, collaborative community that is both professional as well as social. My business has grown and a big part of this is due to the exposure I have received through the activities and events run by the Decorcafe, whether as an attendee or presenter. There are plenty of opportunities and there is definitely a focus on helping to support small business owners to progress and develop, which in turn creates a buoyant, active and engaged community. Debbie and Emma have nurtured a thriving network that I cannot recommend highly enough, whether you're just starting out, more established or indeed simply want to enjoy the wide range of activities and events. It is this dynamic that makes it special.

Debbie has been fantastic to work with. The Decorcafe that she founded is an invaluable resource both for networking and for training. I would highly recommend joining the group - it's collaborative and welcoming. Debbie has been supportive of my business as she is of all members. Debbie is highly professional and has her finger on the pulse of innovation that small businesses need to be aware of.

I had the pleasure to meet Debbie in early 2019. Debbie is wonderfully collaborative and creative. She has been genuinely helpful and active in connecting us with many like-minded creatives in the interior design world with an interest in sustainability, which has been a real boost to our business. The Decorcafe really does have the interests of it's members at heart! And Debbie actually delivers in full on her suggestions and is always an absolute pleasure to work with. I'm sure Decorcafe will continue to go from strength to strength and we fully intend to enjoy the journey with them!

I just wanted to say a big thank you for writing the article about me when I painted Paloma Faith’s house as that’s how my new client found me! She saw the photos of my circus mural on Pinterest from the Architectural Digest magazine but tried hard to find who had done the mural. Then she came across your Decorcafe article and that led her to Decorcafe and then to me. It looks like a great commission and larger than I have had in a while so I am super excited and grateful! In fact since I posted my video last week (also inspired by Decorcafe) I have had 2 enquires from past clients!

I have been a member of the Decorcafe for a few years now. Not only has it given me new clients with both interior designers and private clients, but it has helped me to showcase my gallery to a receptive audience. Debbie and Emma put on great events and are truly collaborative while their business resources have been invaluable. It is a lovely community to be part of.
