After studying for her MSc in Marketing Management in 2014, Preet went on to work for blue-chip FMCG companies, where she gained invaluable experience in brand marketing for leading household names. After realising her naturally creative flair for Interior Design, Preet studied Professional Interior Design at the National Design Academy, and later set up Mood Interiors alongside her mother & mentor Bal Dhanoa.
Bal’s background spans over 35 years in professional health & social care as both owner and provider of care services. Her frustrations for the lack of product offering within this industry sparked a gap in the market. This combined with Preet’s fresh approach to design and creative take on interiors, enables Mood Interior’s to have a unique position within the design field.
Balancing interior design and functionality within Care & Healthcare
At Mood Interiors we have for several years invested time and resources in researching into fabrics, colour, and tactile materials that can be safely used to create and design homes for a range of vulnerable clients with disabilities, complex health care, dementia and those with visual and sensory impairments etc. We firmly believe that residential or health care should be inspiring environments enabling independence, a place of sanctuary, safety, security and positivity to improve outcomes and allows all to enjoy their living spaces. Our evidence shows how the traditional institutional models of care, with clinical stark décor has thankfully become outdated. Current Regulations, focus firmly on environments within care settings thus influencing change. Our task is to explore the balance between functionality and aesthetics which can be a challenge for designers, when having to comply with the Regulations set by DOH guidelines. This seminar aims to assist care providers, on a range of products available to them to execute bespoke & practical interiors delivered within budget and that are compliant.
