“I hadn't realised how overwhelmed I would feel at the final stages of doing up our family home. I had thought that decorating the most important rooms in the house -the kitchen/diner/snug and sitting room would be fun. There is so much choice out there and the trends in interior design on Instagram are vast! I was no longer sure or remotely confident about what I wanted. Having Emma's input was invaluable. She was able to clarify the needs and functionality of the rooms, appreciated factors like light and pieces of furniture that needed to remain and the need for longevity in the designs - all by telephone and my photos- which demonstrates her great skill! I liked Emma's ideas immediately which were practical and stylish. The 3D colour visual was wonderful to appreciate how the designs would look and the sourced items with stockists invaluable-allowing me to get on and turn our house into a home with confidence. I would definitely recommend Emma for your project.”
“One of the wonderful things about this experience has been that we’ve had the opportunity, with your great help, to make sure that all of the individual elements that I already had…tie in so very nicely to all of the new elements that we’ve added to the interior decoration.
I had no great conception of how the whole interior design was going to come together. So the wonderful thing about having your help for this was being able to talk to you and share ideas that I had had and things that I have. And to elicit your help in deciding how those objects…how those colours could all work together as part of one interior design scheme.
[You] very quickly come up with an interior design that was far more complete and far more accomplished that anything that I could have done by myself. And it’s lovely to walk in each day and be reminded of the fact that hard work has been rewarded with a very beautiful interior.”
Thanks so much for your help with taking us on a journey from turning our house into a home!! Sounds a bit over dramatic maybe, but it is actually true. Having built our lovely house, we had ground to a halt in being able to get to the finishing stages of making the interior live up to the building.
We asked you to come up with some ideas to bring the whole house together to make it flow.. and to add some colour in places. You seem to have an intuitive way of coaxing our likes and dislikes out of us , and have worked out what would suit our way of life and came back to us with lovely ideas of how to get that je ne sais quoi that has been avoiding us!
Using the idea boards you have come up with, the samples and guidance on everything from paint colours, where to buy light fittings and wall tiles etc has made the process very easy. Also the fact that you are happy to be on call in moments of need has meant that I have been able to find the necessary motivation to get on with the plan and with great results!!
It’s surprising just how much more comfortable the house has become since we started putting your ideas for it into action.
Thanks again Emma.

Emma has been a pleasure to deal with throughout this process. We are undertaking a big project involving a double storey extension and a full renovation to the rest of the house. Emma took on board all of my comments when preparing the designs and always promptly responded to my numerous emails. We are thrilled with the designs and we can't wait to see what the house will look like when everything is in place. I can't recommend Emma highly enough.

A friend of mine suggested I get in touch with Emma when I mentioned I was looking for a good decorator at a reasonable price. Emma came for a consultation visit where I showed her the rooms I would like to renovate and explained a little bit of my style and taste. I asked her to create a mood board for my bathroom as a starting point. I was surprised with the high standard of her work and ability to understand what I liked. I now feel much more confident to start on this project and know what to look for. I am very pleased with her work and would recommend to anyone who is looking for inspiration, guidance and confidence to embark on a project.
