Vicki has worked on our 7 bed new build as our interior designer for the past two years. She has designed the colour palette and overall style to our taste and helped us choose wallpapers, curtains, furnishings and lighting, even down to choosing paint colours for the garden to marry the two spaces together. She is a really easy person to work with, prompt and friendly with a great eye for colour and style to suit our budget and gives you the feeling you’re in safe hands all the way through a project.

Last year we worked with Vicki over a number of months to produce an overall design for our flat which felt calm and comfortable with a hint of colour. Vicki listened to our wishes and looked very carefully at what we had already that we wanted to keep in the design. From this she built a design that incorporated the colours that we liked with the style that suited us. She was conscious of our budget and respectful of our tastes whilst pushing us gently to take a few risks within our design. We have installed the bathroom and kitchen and we are delighted with the results. Vicki project managed the installation of the kitchen whilst we were on holidays ensuring that it was clean and ready on our return. We would thoroughly recommend her to anyone requiring guidance at working out what they want and how to best achieve it.

I can’t say enough great things about Vicki! She listened to my concerns and was able to bring creative ideas to solve my design dilemmas! Working with Vicki was such a wonderful experience. The consultation with Vicki was like a lesson on colour, fabric or design. I enjoyed ever consulation. We have more rooms to finish and I am looking forward to finishing with Vicki.

Balance Design Ltd replied:
You're very kind Tomoko! It was a bit of a puzzle sorting out what needed to stay and what to be replaced, but once we had that worked out, then everything began to fall into place. Onwards!

Vicki was great from start to finish. She took a huge amount of hassle out of the whole project. I wanted my entire house refurbished to bring it together as a whole with a colour theme and style running throughout the house - Vicki discussed ideas with me, sourced products to save me schlepping around all the shops, and also sourced builders - obtaining 3 quotes. She project managed the refurb, chased up deliveries and negotiated discounts on my behalf. I'm sure she more than paid for herself as a result.

I liked Vicki's ideas, found her easy to work with, and felt she 'got' me and what I wanted as well so she wasn't just imposing things on me that didn't feel right. She was approachable if I didn't like something or wasn't sure when I saw it in situ rather than just on paper - we changed paint colours early in the process for example.

She also sourced some unusual items for me on my request - such as a bidet loo! It was a bit of an experiment on my part, and we laughed over it, but she found a reasonably priced one and I must say it's been very popular! She tolerated my love of gadgets and incorporated my smart home ideas into the brief when I added that in half way through.

There were some difficult moments along the way because I stayed in the house for most of the refurb and having builders in your home for 4 months is inevitably stressful, but Vicki did her best to smooth over those moments as much as possible.

I love the finished result, and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her.

Thank you so much Samantha ... it was a pleasure working with you and I learnt so much about bidet loos! xxx

Balance Design Ltd Q&A

Balance Design Ltd Q&A

What’s your interior design process?

I normally start by phoning the client and outlining how I work and talking through what the client wants so that I can work out the best package for them. This is normally followed up by a briefing meeting on site where we work out a colour palette,a list of items the design should incorporate, an overall design style, room measurements and any other issues that need to be noted. This brief is then confirmed in writing and approximately two weeks later three design concepts are presented to the client for their input and preferences. The outcome of this directional meeting usually forms the backbone of the final design scheme, which is presented approximately two weeks later via electronic mood boards and hard copies with prices, samples and room layout attached.
At this stage the client can either decide to install the design themselves or commission part or all of it to be supplied and installed by Balance Design Ltd.

Which interior design styles can you cater for?

Anything the client can describe and that I can imagine!

What do you love most about your job?

Every job is different and what I love is seeing a design emerge from the directional meeting. Its very satisfying seeing a client move from being confused and unsure to feeling confident and happy in the choices they are making for their home.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I've always wanted to be an interior designer and have dabbled in property renovation whilst working in public relations in the interiors sector. Having a child and looking to develop a career where I could work from home gave me the push I needed to retrain in interior design and then work with Dulux as part of their interior design service for seven years before branching out on my own.

Why should our clients choose you?

I'm a great listener and really work to ensure I'm using my skills to create the interior you will love. You won't get any theatrics, attitude or ego with me - I work in partnership with my client to make the whole process of creating their home as hassle free as possible.
