ABOUT ANGEL + BLUME
Established in 2002, we have gained a comprehensive experience of domestic projects and bespoke corporate work in Cambridge, London and sometimes further afield.
The scale of our domestic projects varies from decorating just one room to implementing a design scheme for the whole house. We take on all room types, including kitchens and bathrooms, and are happy to see these spaces through from start to finish.
Our corporate work tends to focus on smaller projects that require an imaginative design approach. We have worked on shops, restaurants, a health club, serviced apartments, show homes, a school and even a steam train, each one giving us lots to think about.
Cate founded Angel + Blume in 2002 with Gail Abbott and is an interior designer, a colour specialist and a stylist with experience in both domestic and corporate design. She works on all the aspects of the interior design for each project from start to finish but leaves the management of the projects to her two very able project managers! Cate has an MA in Economics from Aberdeen University, an MA in Design from Central St Martins, is a member of the British Interior Design Association and is a PRINCE2 qualified project manager. Her most recent book ‘Secrets of a Stylish Home’ was published by Merrell Publishers in 2013.
Melanie is a project manger at Angel + Blume, and with a vast creative background she has honed a natural talent for design and style. After graduating with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from the University for the Creative Arts in Canterbury, Melanie worked as a practicising fine artist for several years. After freelancing as a design assistant for a firm in London, Melanie gained invaluable experience within the field of interior design. Not just a creative mind, she has a good business head on her shoulders after working as a PA and a legal secretary, making her perfect project management material, as she can not only understand and develop your design ideas but ensure a seamless project to follow.

After graduating from The University of Sussex with a BA (Joint Hons) in Art History and Cultural Studies, Philippa began her career in interior design working as an assistant for a company in Cambridge. She went on to join the team at Angel + Blume, focusing on the marketing side of the company, taking on such roles as Angel + Blume's main blogger and The Address Book administrator. With a knack for writing and a love for art and design, to say Philippa enjoys her job where she gets to dive into the world of interior design is a bit of an understatement.
