"When my husband and I started to consider renovating our 3-bedroom family home in Beach Haven, we had no idea where to start with getting the most out of our living space, let alone how to pull together colour schemes and finishing touches. As our project was relatively modest, I wasn't sure if I would find an interior designer who would be happy to provide the services we wanted within our budget.
Liz has been great to work with from the start, she has advised us on the layout of our open plan kitchen, dining room and lounge, colour schemes (interior and exterior) through to soft furnishings. We agreed the project scope and costs up front, which she delivered to. She has referred us to suppliers where needed but equally been happy for us to source things ourselves.
Liz has given us confidence to make decisions as the renovation progressed and has played a significant role in creating the fresh, cohesive, and functional living space we are now enjoying. Liz has delivered real value for us - if it wasn't for Liz I would be still agonising over paint colours. Thanks Liz! "
