"My experience of this sort of service is that the more you spend, the more the designer makes, but with Pippa, what you see is what you get and she was genuinely motivated to provide me with the best product at the best price. I recommend anyone considering an interior project to get in touch with Pippa, you'll end up with a fantastic finish at half the price with absolutely no stress."

Dr S Dornan, Crawfordsburn.

"I would still be looking at concrete floors and bare walls if it was not for Pippa! She took control of things and managed all the steps seamlessly, taking all the hassle away. She listened to my budget, requirements and tastes and achieved a fantastic end result - I love my house! I also need to thank her for managing my husband through our first time experience of interior designing, he also loves his home!"

Mrs A Poli, Helen's Bay.

"Pippa was so easy to work with; with her flexible evening appointments to fit around my busy schedule, her understanding of my style, needs and wants coupled with her clever use of existing furniture to keep the project within budget. She took care of absolutely everything and the whole process was completely stress free and delivered on time. I ended up with a beautifully styled room that blends with the rest of my house. I can't believe that she managed such a transformation at a fraction of the cost that I had initially expected, despite the high quality of the finish. I am delighted with my room!"

Mrs J Graham, Holywood.

"With my husband and I extremely busy with work and family we just didn't have time to devote hours of trailing shops and websites for ideas and samples. I was worried about employing an interior designer in case they would 'take over' meaning my home interior would not be my own choice. Well was I wrong! We consulted with Pippa on site, emails and phone calls, she picked up our ideas and our tastes immediately. With expert knowledge on interior design as well as structural elements she was invaluable in advising us what was and at times wasn't possible, ultimately saving us from making some rather costly mistakes! Pippa took all the running around out of the equation for us, she collected samples from tiles to curtains, she accompanied us to choose sanitary ware and advised us on our kitchen design. She suggested perfect paint colours for all the walls throughout the house, this is something which we have previously gotten wrong on more than one occasion resulting in quite a few repaints! Aside from making our interior design experience stress free and enjoyable Pippa was able to, with her wealth of contacts, arrange other services for us such as tiling, carpeting and one of my favourite commissions, reupholstering our leather bed frame with luxurious crushed velvet, another money saver! We are all so in love with our new home, adults and children alike, I cannot recommend Pippa enough and if like me you hold a preconception about interior designers please be assured it is by far the most cost effective, stress and time free way to complete your home."

Mrs H Duff, Holywood.
