We were fortunate to find Ann through her website. From the
moment we had our initial consultation, Ann was easy to talk to and
listened to our needs, wants and budget regarding the interior
design of our new home. She came up with some brilliant suggestions
which have worked extremely well in our busy lifestyle. Ann was
very flexible in meeting us at different times during the day, and
directed us away from some of our 'bad choices' with great
alternatives. We are grateful to have had the pleasure of working
with Ann, and for creating a warm, fun atmosphere at home which is
commented on by everyone that enters! Thanks Ann!

Ann assisted me recently with my kitchen, lounge dining &
hall makeover. She was extremely helpful and gave me great
ideas for my kitchen design, colours fabrics and carpet. Ann also
obtained quotes and samples for me. I always found her to be
very professional and I would highly recommend her.
We had the good fortune to be recommended Ann's services,
when we were about to commence our recent house refurbishments, and
have been thanking our lucky stars ever since.
As per our brief, Ann reworked the bathroom layouts to maximize
space and light, and for the house overall she gave us just the
right number of colour, textile and product choices to allow us to
choose combinations we are very happy with. We happened to be
very busy work-wise during the refurbishment period, and Ann
fortunately stepped in and project-managed the whole thing, making
sure the quality of workmanship was up to scratch, and that the
work was completed within the rather tight timeframe we'd set for
Ann has been exceedingly generous with her time and in other
ways too, and was an absolute delight to have in the house.
