Kensington, London W8
This charming mews house in Kensington was originally part of a stable block, and was absolutely bursting with character and original features, from the vaulted ceiling and ribbed, stained glass window in the kitchen, to the exposed beams in the adjoining dining room.
We were engaged to pull together and finalise the details for the client’s new kitchen including colour scheme, finishes, lighting, repositioning artwork, and detailing.
We also assisted with the colour scheme for the adjoining dining room and guest cloakroom.
We worked with the client’s architect and contractor to ensure all elements of the project progressed according to plan.
“I met Nicola when I had started out on a major kitchen renovation project, having hired the builder, architect, and kitchen unit manufacturer.
Work was about to start when the realisation dawned that I needed help to pull together some critical elements, like colour schemes, lighting, and to help with the interface between builder and architect.
Nicola was impressively skilful in working with all the people on the project, firm but positive, so that everyone liked her and she got good results from them.
She was a very effective coordinator between the builder and architect, drawing up the lighting plans and keeping everything moving on schedule.
Her advice on colours and finishes was invaluable, and she was a great source of new ideas.
I also greatly appreciated Nicola’s disciplined approach to each aspect of the project she undertook for me. Every item was detailed in advance, with budget, for approval.
I can unhesitatingly recommend Nicola as a highly professional interior designer.”
