Testimonials

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 ourselves.

Ann has been exceedingly generous with her time and in other ways too, and was an absolute delight to have in the house.
