"She is passionate about what she does and is a joy to work with."

"We had a project to redevelop a corner of our garden. Alex project managed what turned out to be a pool rebuild, a pool house design and build and landscaping the area to link into the surrounding fields. A dark over-grown area is now bright, modern, and a wild flower meadow flows seamlessly into grass and then an expansive paved pool area. We gave Alex complete control over design and choices of the entire area. She designed a pool house where the glass doors disappear into the walls when open, leaving the inside to become part of the pool side area. The back wall is a huge picture window meaning that the house does not disrupt the views across the field. Finally the finish is spectacular.  Her choices of furniture, crockery, decorations and cushions, throws, towels were all perfect – we walked in and it was finished, down to the coffee machine and bottle opener for the rose. Working with Alex was a complete joy throughout the process. Nothing was too much trouble and she managed the plumber, electrician and builder with ease. Her friendly but professional nature meant the project was enjoyed by all with the perfect end result for us. A year on we are eternally grateful to Alex for creating a space we could only have dreamed of. 

 

We live in a converted cottage and as our boys have grown, their rooms have simply not been big enough. We asked Alex to help us figure out if there was a way to improve the use of space.  She came up with a scheme that reflected each of our boy’s personalities.  The challenge is that not a single floor, wall or ceiling was straight or flat.  Everything had to be bespoke, but she made it work.  Retractable desks, niches around and above cabin beds, and clever wardrobe designs in corners. The boys love that they have reading lights, places for their things – be their sport trophies or models they have built, and desks with plugs and USB chargers for all their devices. The lighting is fantastic – wall lights, spots, integrated LEDs are all used to maximise brightness and flexibility for a revision space to a comfy bedtime. Alex chose the fabrics, wall paper, bed linen, desk leather, art, and all the finishing touches.

We feel that the bedrooms have gone from being the compromise in our house, to really special bespoke spaces for each of our boys. Once again her unique personality meant that the project was fun from start to finish.  She gently suggests her wonderful schemes but is continually client led and we felt with both projects that she completely understood what we as a family required.

 

We have just bought a holiday home and quite simply after the projects she had worked on so successfully on our home, there was no one else for the job.  The ability to see a project from start to finish, in a professional but friendly manner and creating the most perfect spaces is her unique selling point."

"Having recently moved house I was delighted to find that Alex was available to give me advice on fabrics and paints for our new home.  I was horrified at the price of curtain fabrics as it was a long time since I had had any new curtains, but Alex was very understanding and came up with some excellent suggestions.  She also put me in touch with an excellent curtain maker and decorator. Our decorator was thrilled not only with the colours she chose but the quality of the paint that Alex had suggested.  I would certainly recommend her, she really has got an extraordinarily good eye for colour and material co-ordinations.  She even had imaginative ideas for transforming the garden!"

"We asked Alex to help us plan and design our alpine-themed New Year's Eve party. She came up with the brilliant idea of having an outdoor après ski bar, complete with cocktail bar, shotski, sheepskin-covered deck chairs, festoon lights and fire pits. Alex not only sourced all our props and decorations, including a chairlift photo booth,  but also spent a huge amount of time preparing the party rooms and helping us get everything ready on the day. I cannot recommend her highly enough for her creativity, enthusiasm and hard work. She is passionate about what she does and is a joy to work with."

"I put my flat on the market a week ago….. and within a week its gone for 10% above the valued price  - the agent said that the buyers in the bidding war loved the décor and the way it had been done up so I have you to thank for such a great price being achieved!!”
