Collaborative and empathetic approach
‘Vanessa transformed our rather random ideas and hopes into reality. Indeed the end results are everything we hoped for, only much better… Vanessa is a joy to work with. I hugely appreciated her collaborative and empathetic approach… She is a fantastic listener, patient and diplomatic, managing the conflicting tastes of myself and my husband!... She has wonderful ideas and does not impose ‘her’ style on her clients… the result is a house that feels like a home, not a design statement!’
‘I had not used an Interior Designer before, but Vanessa completely converted me! She seemed to understand instinctively what we would like, she had some great ideas that I would have never in a million years have thought of, and she used a team of craftsmen who were all highly professional. In addition, she kept to a budget. On top of this, Vanessa was a delight to work with. I would wholeheartedly recommend her.’
Knowledge and Patience
'Several years ago I asked Vanessa to help redecorate our house. She was a pleasure to work with and has an excellent sense of space and lighting ideas. Vanessa is able to take on transforming a whole house or is happy to help with a small bedroom. She is sensitive to a client's budget, and is very adaptable. Our home is now unique, warm, light, and full of colour. I couldn't have done it without Vanessa's knowledge, patience, reassurance and designing skills.'
‘Vanessa was an incredible calming influence throughout our hectic building project. At times when it seemed we were in overwhelm, she made everything possible. Her help has been invaluable. She has an abundance of good ideas, which made us think ‘outside our box’ and was always respectful of our somewhat quirky need for colour! We can, with great confidence, recommend her enormously.’
Clare and Jonny, London
‘My experience with Vanessa has been an excellent one. She is very creative and came up with some great ideas which we used in the decoration and furnishing of our house. Her efficiency saved me a lot of time and effort and I would highly recommend her.’
First Class Contractors
'Vanessa worked wonders on my teenage daughter's bedroom. creating space, light, storage and mirrors. Perfect. She understands immediately what my goals are, she provides samples to choose from, and her contractors are first class. She saves me time, money and stress!'
Exemplary collaboration with architect and builder
'Vanessa advised us when we re-built/re-furbished our house in 2006. Her 'mood' boards were very useful in helping us to visualise the different colours, textures and options. Very good at sourcing items, listening to what we wanted and producing solutions. She chose great colour schemes to maximise the amount of light brought into the house. Her collaboration with both the architect and the builder was exemplary which made for very smooth working relationships and an atmosphere conducive to creative debate and ideas. Her ideas on how to improve the architect's plans were also very good. It was a pleasure to work with her and we would thoroughly recommend her.'
