I was extremely pleased with Catherine’s colour consultation service. She understood how and when we live in various parts of our home. The colours presented worked extremely well with the lighting and delivered the mood we hoped for. I would not have believed the difference choosing the right colours made to my reception rooms, it really has transformed my living spaces. We look forward to working with Catherine again on our future project
With her enthusiasm, knowledge and unique creative vision Catherine transformed my newly purchased period property into a home. From incorporating period features and classic design with modern essentials she respected the individuality of the house, and the owner, to create beautiful bespoke spaces. With Catherine’s help it’s wonderful to think we’re continuing to build on this old house’s story (and our own)
“We were extremely fortunate to have found Catherine, she listened to the idea of the home that we wanted to create. We were amazed how the colours she chose for walls and floors complemented each other. She sourced beautiful bespoke pieces of furniture and artwork, pushing our boundaries a little to create a wonderfully decadent living space. Catherine’s added attention to detail on lighting and light switches made such a difference. Catherine project managed the process from start to finish, bringing in a great team and transforming our house into a home.
