The multiple lockdowns hit Corey Jade Stockwell’s salon business hard, meaning relocation was necessary to survive. “The future of the business looked grim,” Corey explains. “The most important thing was to keep a roof over my family’s head; as a single mum, it was down to me.

“Luckily, I had plenty of room in my garden so work could start on a studio. I’d sought quotes for the work in the first and second lockdowns, but when the third came, I had no choice – I had to be brave and go for it!”

Now, a stunning studio can be found, complete with a décor that brings the great outside in. “It’s very fresh and airy, with lots of natural light,” Corey smiles. “All the walls are bright white and there is a mural feature wall that’s full of flowers, birds and butterflies.”

The studio also offers an inspired learning space for Corey’s teaching. “I’m an educator for HD Nail Artist Academy,” she explains. “I wanted to have more freedom to teach and flexibility for my students. I can now teach up to six students comfortably in the space.

“Currently there are two of us working from the studio, but in the future and as restrictions are lifted, I have the room to expand if I wish. Going forward I’m hoping to have a better work and home life balance thanks to the studio, too.”
