April and the bear collaborated with me on the interiors of an extension on our family home. Her response time, proactive nature and flare and energy helped to deliver some lovely concepts and ideas for our house. She sourced wonderful lights and accessories for our house and met my brief completely. Her help with ordering and delivery of products to us in a timely manner was exceptional. She has a wonderful eye for detail and integrated some our current furniture pieces and art into the mood boards she created. I am delighted I happened upon her online shop, blog and interiors business. I would recommend her for any project that needs those finishing interior touches that will give your project that wow factor.

Siobhan did an amazing job of helping us design our perfect home. We initially met for coffee for a consultation and she was excellent at getting a clear idea of what our style was, she came back to us with detailed moodboards and purchase lists for each room, and was very helpful in arranging deliveries, suggesting alternatives in terms of price and style and sourcing suppliers we would never have found ourselves including an ironmonger to make a custom wine rack, an amazing furniture restorer/painter, and a custom cut vintage mirror supplier! Her excellent eye and enthusiasm for her work were invaluable to us while renovating our house.
