Q&A With… Fezza and Del
We were lucky enough to have had the opportunity to talk to Fay Holt, one half of “Fezza and Del” and also wife of ex-Norwich City footballer, Grant Holt.
Here, Fay talks about the business she runs with her twin sister, Adele, and their lifelong love of interior design.
Q: Could you tell us a little bit about yourselves?
A: Del and I created the online business ”Fezza and Del” in January 2019. We are identical twins, who share the same passion in interior design. Since the children are now at school, it seemed the ideal opportunity to turn our lifelong passion into reality. Having moved house so frequently, redesigning at each move, it was evident there was a niche in the market which we are now fortunate enough to fill the gap! We specialise in luxury, bespoke, handmade gifts and interior decor.
Q: How did this lifelong passion for interior design begin?
A: Our earliest memory is our mum decorating our home, creating some of our fondest memories together. Our homes were a forever-changing platform for mum to showcase her personality, which has provided us with the passion we share together today.
From as early as I can remember, Del and I were always inspiring each other with new designs for our shared bedroom. Whether it be the latest Romeo and Juliet poster or Leonardo DiCaprio, it was forever-changing.
Our lives formed a path, which led us away from the interior design dream, however it remained very close to our hearts in our own homes. Beauty and children became the new focus; while I followed my husband and his career nationally, Del focused on her other passion: beauty therapy. This remains a big part of Del’s life today, fitting it in around the business and being a mum.
Q: Do you both get your own way when it comes to the way your homes are styled?
A: Mum has three girls like myself and we have always had our own way, which hasn’t changed!
I could paint the walls yellow and Grant wouldn’t blink an eye; he would even compliment on how good it looked! He has supported me from the word go. For the last twelve years, we have been a very pink household due to the girls, so it wouldn’t surprise me if Grant was to pick his favourite colour this may be it!
Q: What’s your favourite current interiors trend or do you prefer to go with your own personal style regardless?
A: We aren’t trend followers; we are quite unique in our style! However, we do adore the French country, shabby chic look with a touch of Hollywood glamour! I love to be surrounded by beautiful pieces, with a minimalist fresh and airy feel, which can be hard to create without clutter!
My home is forever being staged; you will never come in and not question what’s moved or changed! Reflecting your personality and things you love is what makes your interior your own; try to not overthink it, go with your heart.
Q: So, what’s next for Fezza and Del?
A: Our venture has only just begun, and to love what we can call work is our dream. We have talked about opening a shop as we love interacting with people, so watch this space! It’s exciting, we will see were our venture will take us. Bring on 2020!
