Customer Testimonials

Jan, Ilkley

Vanessa and Lili have helped me to turn the Victorian House I bought last year into the dream home I now adore. We are well over half way through this project and I am so very happy with everything they have done. I really look forward to their visits because they are such fun to work with; we get so excited by all the ideas and possibilities, making this the creative highlight of each month! The perfect combination of Vanessa and Lili's wealth of experience, and innate ability to understand my needs and taste so well, mean that what first appears to be a daunting range of choices can be narrowed down quite quickly. This, coupled with their natural openness means that we can be entirely open and frank with one another about what we think will work. What first felt like a huge task has been made utterly painless, and thoroughly enjoyable, due to the care, attention and sheer professionalism of this wonderful duo.

Amy and John, North Leeds

When we decided to make the move from our modern city centre apartment to a large 1850's country house, finding the right interior designer was at the top of my list. As we were leaving all of our contemporary furniture behind, the house was a completely blank canvas. When we met Vanessa we knew immediately that we'd found the right fit - her approach was so much more 'bespoke' than any of the other interior designers we had considered. She took all of our ideas on board and quickly grew to understand our taste. She even instinctively knew when my husband and I would disagree on design choices, and always found the perfect compromise! Working with Vanessa to decorate and furnish our new home was a hugely enjoyable experience. She has truly created our dream home, and we can't thank her enough for going the extra mile to get every detail just right.

Kate and Tom, Harrogate

The first thing that struck me about Vanessa was her fantastic ability to listen to what I liked and did not like and then translate that into exactly what I wanted. She made the decisions for our sitting room so easy, from the sofa to the wall colour and even the art work. We are absolutely delighted with the look and feel of both our sitting room and spare bedroom and cannot wait to see what the next project looks like. These days when a decision has to be made on wall colour or furniture my husband’s stock response is 'lets ask Vanessa'!

Liz and Marcus, Wetherby

Vanessa seemed to immediately ‘get’ what I wanted. Everything she suggested was perfect and it was a pleasure to work with her. She delivered her fantastic sense of style within budget and with an amazing eye for detail. She also managed to do this whilst working within extremely tight time scales. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Sandra and Peter, Harrogate

I first met Vanessa over 5 years ago when I was looking to refurbish my lounge. She spent time getting to know me and the look I wanted to achieve. Vanessa then sourced beautiful fabrics for curtains and cushions, occasional furniture and a bespoke settee made to my own specifications. The result was an elegant and timeless room that exceeded all my expectations. Vanessa has gone on to design my master bedroom, dining room, kitchen and family room and each room is stunning. She is an extremely talented designer, has a great eye for detail, and I always thoroughly enjoy working with her.

Rose and Christian, Ilkley

Very friendly and personal service, fantastic ideas of how to blend pattern and colours together that I would never have thought of myself. Can't recommend enough.

Emily and Ben, Ilkley

When I first met Vanessa, I was only intending to get help with fabric choices in my living room. I knew the kind of look I wanted but had been unable to create it myself. The mood board Vanessa presented was full of ideas that I would never have considered on my own. I was nervous at first and outside of my comfort zone but the result was so lovely, I trusted her to finish every single room in our house and wouldn’t hesitate to use her again in the future.
