South Downs Project
“We were overwhelmed by the scale of the project of our listed house. With Sally-anne’s experienced understanding of the practicalities of busy family life, along with her knowledge of house renovation, she was able to translate our ideas and vision to the architect and together, navigated us through the minefield of heritage and planning permission, as well prioritising areas of the house so we may phase the project according to budget.
Sally-Anne interprets our taste so well and brings a touch of her own experienced eye to each room with a surprise burst of colour and texture that we otherwise we would not have thought of. We find Sally-Anne to be down to earth, practical and utterly professional. She has a natural understanding of how to maximise use of space and bring a sense of flow through the house. Sally-Anne interprets the heritage aspects of the building and blends it with a contemporary approach to living to great effect.”
“We found Sally-Anne a pleasure to work with. She interpreted our ideas to put together and implemented a scheme for our master bedroom to maximise the space and frame the windows to their best potential, complementing the views beyond. She was most patient with me when I found it difficult to settle on which wall covering to go for! Sally-Anne worked with local companies to bring together a calm and restful scheme which we can’t wait to retreat to at the end of a busy day.”
