Interior Design

How would you describe your style?

"Working very closely with the client, we like our projects to look like they’ve developed over time creating personal, fun and charming interiors which will be enjoyed for years to come. We appreciate that many of our clients have a keen interest in interior decoration, so we try to use their initial thoughts and build on those to make a complete scheme alongside ideas that they may not have thought of. We are not afraid of colour and also love to bring in both contemporary and a more classic look to a room – obviously depending on our brief."

"A complete renovation of a large, listed village house making the best of its period features but also reflecting the owner’s eclectic taste and thus ensuring it still felt personal to them. We came on board at the beginning of this project, initially to help with the planning and implementation of the bathrooms and kitchen. Working with a team as the go-between, on behalf of our client, with the architect, contractors and project managers, we came through the process firm friends. After the first site visit we quickly realised that the original location of the kitchen was in completely the wrong place for 21st century living.It was relocated to a lumber room on the garden side of the house and the kitchen designers were engaged to plan and build the new kitchen. We then helped with all the soft furnishings throughout the house, including carpets as well as joinery and lighting. We are now involved with the refurbishment of the coach house, which was pretty derelict and is nearing completion to a very comfortable guest annexe, with bedroom, bathroom, sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room and a separate sauna and shower complex."
