Clement Design is run by me, Tery McCowan, from my home in Applecross.
I specialise in creating interior spaces which are uniquely designed and founded upon the clients' needs. I have recently finished the new design and upgrade of The Walled Garden Restaurant on Applecross Estate. As well as the interior design side of things, I also design and hand print my own bespoke range of interior textiles. I like to incorporate my own designs in the jobs I do where I see fitting. I'm also about to launch my new range of wallpaper, designed by me and printed in the UK.
