We used Louise's 'designer on call' service while we built our extension during lockdown. Despite never meeting in person, she understood our vision and thoughtfully guided us through each decision we asked for her advice on. It's safe to say she radically improved our kitchen design (which had been designed by a 'kitchen designer'). She responded quickly to emails when builders were pressuring us to make a decision so they could stay on schedule. With Louise's help we have a lovely paint scheme throughout and AMAZING fabric choices to complement. Looking back I'm not sure how we could have done it without her guidance. Having Louise to 'call on' removed stress and provided a neutral professional opinion where my husband and I couldn't agree on a decision.
It has been a privilege and a pleasure to work with Louise throughout the refurbishment and extension of my home. Louise is clearly an expert in her field but I also found her to be flexible, personable, friendly and collaborative. From the outset, Louise took a keen interest in my ideas and immediately understood my personal style and tastes. I am convinced that without her the whole process would have been so much harder and more costly. I now fully appreciate how much stress and financial cost can be saved when a renovation is handled by an expert. I am absolutely thrilled with the results.
I called Louise out of the blue to help revamp our kitchen, she came to visit and I had a detailed proposal the following week. She is so warm and easy to get on with, listens and has a great eye for colour. She turned the project around amazingly quickly, and saved me hours of research. She went above and beyond to visit shops to see if they had stock as we were so short of time. We are thrilled with the results and everyone thinks we've had a new kitchen. I have other projects in mind now and will happily use Louise as she really does inspire me with confidence in her abilities. Honestly, her service and value for money is faultless.
I loved our house but when we moved back from Lanzarote I knew we just had to change the layout to make it work for us as a family. So as part of the renovations, we moved our living room to the kitchen and I adore it. The whole space feels like me, there’s nothing I would change. Thank you Louise for literally designing my dream kitchen!
We really enjoyed the whole experience with Louise, and the transformation is fantastic! The colours in the kitchen are wonderful, and my daughter loved her room so much that the photographer took lots of photos at her wedding (which was held here).
We chose Louise as she is simply the best for the job! She has fantastic style, she really takes the time to understand her clients, she is THE expert when it comes to colour and she has all the best ideas - from big items through to important finishing touches and details. There is no way we would have dared to choose the bold colour without her expert guidance but we just love it now. Everything was so easy and we got beyond amazing results!
You are worth your weight in gold! It's so lovely to have someone who shares my vision and can see past a building site!
We started looking at furniture and other items and quickly became overwhelmed by the amount of choice available, so we took a step back and enlisted the help of Louise to bring a cohesive style to our rooms. Louise always thought outside the box and made sure that the designs not only fit our brief but stayed within budget, maximised space and wouldn’t date. The rooms are now inviting, quirky, stylish and functional. She is brilliant and we have worked with her several times - I can’t recommend Louise enough.
We have thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, particularly as it's been so much more helpful than we could have imagined. I think the main reason we enjoyed it was that you were so down to earth and made us feel totally comfortable even though we didn't have a fortune to spend. Not once did you put pressure on us, whilst drawing out exactly what we wanted. Thank you!

We really needed help with the design of two connecting rooms and were both short on time and daunted by all the options out there. We felt that money spent on expert help would really be worth it, and were beyond delighted with the results. Louise made what could have been a long and difficult process quick, easy and enjoyable, and her help with the use of colour was spot on. Friends and family constantly tell us how gorgeous the rooms are, and we think they are absolutely stunning!
Having recently moved back to our own house after nearly three decades of expat living, we were in need of advice as to how we could tastefully make our Asian furniture and rugs work in our modern British house. Louise's friendly, sensitive, and clear vision were absolutely fabulous. In her visit, she was able to work out my taste and her suggestions of colours and fabrics pushed me very comfortably out of my comfort zone. Louise gave opinions and ideas but most importantly she listened to me and never attempted to inflict her personal preferences on us. She is totally approachable and has given very generously of her time, even after the completion of the project, always responding promptly and efficiently. I wholeheartedly recommend her.
Working with Louise was a dream - she listened to us about things we liked but more importantly gave us ideas that we hadn't considered. I love it when someone comes into the room and I see their reaction - they love our new living space and because everything is so beautifully designed it looks amazing. Louise is very easy to work with and I would definitely recommend her
I am pleased to tell you that the living room has now been decorated following your recommendations, and it complements the hall perfectly. I also find it breathtakingly beautiful and calming - all of which is thanks to you!

Louise has an amazing talent. We started with our guest room as this was the worst room in the house (now the best). Louise takes the time to understand what you want even if you are unsure of what you want yourself! The whole project went like a dream and we were so pleased that we asked Louise to look at our kitchen and snug area too, then throughout 2019 it will be the rest of the house. We love all the compliments our house now gets!
We engaged the services of Louise to advise on the design and furnishing of our lounge and dining room. We were extremely impressed with Louise's grasp of our needs and her ability to translate them into workable designs. Louise is extremely personable and professional in her approach; we felt well supported in our decision making, without ever feeling that there was any pressure to go in a particular direction if we were unhappy with the design. The results were excellent and we would recommend Louise without hesitation.
Louise helped us with the interior design of our living room and bedroom. We live in the Cayman Islands so were trying to furnish these rooms through online shopping, which I was finding a near impossible task. We were extremely impressed by Louise's ability to translate our rough ideas in to gorgeous designs and pick out pieces that worked perfectly with our style and brought our ideas to life, not to mention her responsiveness and friendly attitude. Louise was a real pleasure to work with and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her design services!

Although from Wales, I live overseas and have recently bought a holiday house in my home town. I reached out to Louise as I knew I would need help designing and choosing furniture for the whole house as it was not possible for me to go to stores and see any of the products. Louise worked tirelessly with me over email and we agreed on the scheme and furniture for the entire house. I bought everything that Louise suggested, and now that I've seen the house, I couldn't be happier! I've had a fantastic experience with Louise and will be recommending her to family and friends.
You have really captured the essence of what I wanted in the house - I am delighted with how well you have understood my thoughts and ideas!
I really love my new bedroom and ensuite - it’s so calm and relaxing, but I can spend too much time in it! A real haven. What shall we do next?
The settees have arrived and are absolutely gorgeous!!! Only problem is, they are so comfy you don't get up for the rest of the evening! Thank you so much for your help, we love all the things you helped us choose.

Louise has completed a number of interior design projects for me, including the complete refurbishment of my living room, and choosing fabrics and finishes for two bedrooms and a bathroom. Each task was approached with incredible flair and imagination, demonstrating an intuitive understanding of my taste, whilst also gently encouraging me to extend my colour palette and innovate with colour and texture. The results speak for themselves, not only because of Louise's patient attention to detail and finish - her calm, friendly manner and willingness to listen to the client's needs are recommendation enough - but ultimately the best advertisement for Louise's skill and talent is the finished product, which is exemplary. I cannot recommend her work too highly.
The service Louise offers is superb. She's very professional, knows her products and I couldn't have wished for a nicer person to help me!
The room is finally finished! We are absolutely delighted with it and it has gained a thumbs up from all who have seen it. Thank you for all your ideas and for the support you gave us.
