"Moving into a new house and turning it into a home is very exciting but can also be daunting. Getting things together, notably these days, is most challenging. My family is very lucky to have been able to get Pip Interior Designs to help us with this seemingly herculean task. Pip was with us every step of the way. She was able to make a few house visits before we moved in and discussed with us in great detail how we’d like the house to look and feel.
Unfortunately, due to the COVID crisis, everything else after that had to be done virtually. Pip was very thorough and showed us mood boards via email, sent us fabrics through post and we would FaceTime a lot! She ordered everything we needed!!! She was able to design and put together a gorgeous room with white and blush tones any little girl would love and a cool room for a 14-year old young man who loved his music and his sport.
The master bedroom is a dream with its beautiful modern Asian look. Our lounge is coming together and definitely has an east meets west feel which was exactly what we wanted. There are still a few things to be done as the lockdown has delayed deliveries and has prevented Pip to come and arrange and re-arrange everything as I know she is keen to do herself but we have managed to accomplish this with her help but with as much social distancing, thanks to technology.
Pip has been very patient and such a joy to deal with especially under such unusual circumstances. She has a very good eye, is very stylish and has a distinct point of view. What I love about her though, is her ability to listen to the client’s needs and desires and make them come to life. We will definitely work with Pip Interior Designs again. In the meantime, we are happily and cozily ensconced in our lovely home which Pip has lovingly helped us put together".

Having lived in houses that 'went with the job' for nearly 40 years, decorating your own home can be quite overwhelming. This time there wouldn't be lambs sharing the kitchen or straw climbing the stairs!
After wading through the unfamiliar territory of colour charts, fabric samples and carpets for the smaller rooms we were left with a large L shaped living/dining room. Bravely purchasing new furniture, curtains, and 'bits', the room still felt cold and bare, not the feel we were wanting...something was missing. Looking on the Web for guidance we came across the welcoming website of Pip Interior Designs.
After chatting with Pip about her work it became obvious that interiors is a huge passion and her loyalty to work with local businesses and tradespeople is very important to her.
Even though this commission was only for 'adding to' one room (although it did extend a little!) and not a blank canvas, Pip’s enthusiasm and approach is extremely professional. Her super bubbly personality and down to earth manner immediately puts you at ease.
Taking in what had already been purchased Pip soon suggested ideas to make the room warmer and had lots of examples to show- some more pieces of furniture, fabric for new blinds and the creation of a window seat, a picture here, a lamp there, the odd cushion even the addition of a wooden calendar! At no time did we feel under pressure to say yes to anything and Pip was always happy to listen to our thoughts.
This commission, although small, has taken time, but Pip, despite all the challenges of the present situation, has always been extremely willing and helpful. Ordering, collecting, re-ordering and delivering. A huge plus for clients who are out at work. All done with a smiley face!
Pip has completely changed the ambience of our room. Her attention to detail and small touches have made a real difference. Now we can enjoy a warm, cosy family room.
Asking our 8 year old Grandson what he thought of the 'new room' he looked around laid on the sofa and said, with a nod of the head, very.... comfortable, very comfortable!
Thank you Pip!
