Review of Flippa Interiors by Kevin Cox

Working with Philippa and her team was the single best decision I made when embarking on my Guildford HMO project. The process was easy and the end result truly excellent. Excellent not only in terms of a well designed and fantastic looking house - but excellent in terms of achieving more than 20% above comparable local rents. This is undoubtedly due to the superior interior design - the time and cost spent achieving this has proved to be a very worthwhile investment. I would have no hesitation in recommending Philippa and her team.

We contacted Flippa Interiors to come round and give us some advice on a kitchen/extension project we were about to start.

Philippa was very friendly and the turnaround of drawings, ideas and responses to questions was very quick.

The advice she gave lead to us changing our initial thoughts on a layout but we are glad that we did as Philippa's plan works far better.

For the service we asked for, just advice and some drawings, we found that this was excellent value.

Would definitely recommend.

Philippa was quick to respond to my first request. I have no interior design experience and Philippa skillfully asked questions to discover my likes and dislikes. Philippa really listened and provided an initial brief that was incredible. We had a couple of quick chats to check out some of my requests and I learned about being brave with colour. I have no hesitation in recommending Philippa - a great designer, on time, target and price and really nice to work with.

Flippa Interiors replied:
It was a real pleasure to work with you and we were delighted to be able to help you create a comfortable and cosy home!

I have used Flippa on three occasions and been delighted every time. They combine professionalism, creativity and great communication in a happy mix. They hit the deadlines, they suggested interesting solutions and kept up a transparent flow of information and communication throughout the projects. Most importantly they are really grounded, good people and easy to work with! Even better, they know one or two great pubs to meet in.

Flippa Interiors replied:
We have worked with Matt on his 3 HMO properties, advising on internal footprint and building alterations, interior design and procurement of furniture, furnishings and accessories. It has always been a huge pleasure to work with Matt, he has always been open to new ideas and suggestions, and as such his HMO properties really stand out as market leaders in their area.

From the initial introduction, to the initial sit down meeting, to the design concept and mood board stage, to the amazing timing between the buildings works being finished and delivery and installation process from Flippa interiors, I couldn't be more happy. Why try and do something yourself when someone else can do it much better. Flippa interiors made the whole process of renting out a HMO stress free. I would highly recommend. All rooms were rented within weeks, if not days, and for that I am truly grateful. I would highly recommend.

I had initially chosen Flippa Interiors because of their extensive experience with working with property Investors and was also impressed by their website. I had met Philippa after a brief consultation over the phone and wanted her to provide design ideas for my apartment as I wanted to put it up on the the market in the new year.
We met at my apartment in Slough that was currently tenanted. Philippa was prompt and came well equipped with resources to show me. Despite the condition of the apartment she was still able to visualize and take the appropriate photos of the apartment for her to work on.
My consultation was relaxed and very informative as we sat at a local Cafe over a hot drink. Phillipa had discussed her creative ideas to me on how she could make my apartment more appealing towards potential buyers.
I was very impressed on how quickly she responded to my request and had produced a professional Mood Board that had detailed colour schemes for each room and also accessories that will complement the theme for each room at reasonable prices. Having been my first experience with a Interior designer, I was very satisfied with the service that I have received. Overall, I would say that Phillipa really knows what she is talking about and I would use her services again. I would definitely recommend her.

It was great to be able to help Donna transform her tired rental apartment and a pleasure to work for her. As she hired Flippa Interiors on a consultancy only basis, we were able to advise her on work that needed doing and leave her with a blueprint document of what interior design changes to make (which kept within her allocated budget) and which she could roll out at her own pace.

Wonderful service. This lovely lady provided a fantastic, all round, professional service. I used Flippa Interiors for a full interior design of a 2 bedroom property. The service included accurate plans of the property being taken, every detail was included. Full colour mood boards and floor plans were provided on A3 quality paper. Philippa also spent a lot of time sourcing all the furniture, wallpaper, paint, fixtures and fitting for the property. This was all included in the price that was quoted (I know that the service they provide can also include all these items being purchased and placed in the property for you). I was incredibly happy and impressed by the service. Philippa has a wonderful style and design skill, she is very knowledgeable about all areas and found me some amazing items for my property. She also came up with a great overall theme for the property that worked extremely well and was clear in her overall vision. Every detail was included.
I would very happily recommend this company if you are looking for a competent and helpful interior designer. I have included some photos from my property.
Thank you Philippa

Flippa Interiors helped me with an interior design project for my home and their creativity, professionalism and attention to detail were second to none. I really enjoyed the whole process from concept to delivery and working with them was very easy. They came up with great ideas and suggestions for my interiors and their mood boards really helped me to visualise my project properly. Philippa's attention to detail was spot on, and she costed up the project accurately, staying true to the budget we'd agreed. I'd highly recommend Philippa and Flippa Interiors to anyone needing an interior design project completing.

Flippa Interiors Q&A

Flippa Interiors Q&A

What’s your interior design process?

Initially we like to find out as much as possible from the client about what they want to achieve from working with an interior designer and what their hopes and aspirations are for the space they'd like to work on. That's why our initial 30 minute consultation at your property is so essential for both parties. It costs just £30+VAT and it means we can talk through and 'walk through' your brief, seeing first hand your space and understanding from you what your brief is, discuss the space together and talk you through initial ideas and thoughts for the work.
After this initial consultation, if you think you'd like to hire us we can give the client a 'guesstimate', which is a rough idea of how much items cost and what our fees for the project would be. Once the guesstimate is approved and the first stage payment is made, we will go to the property, measure up and then draw up the plans. The floor plans will show; any new room divisions, additional rooms en-suites/bathrooms, kitchen layouts, electrical /phone/TV points, lighting, heating and furniture layouts. We often show a couple of versions for the client to choose from.
After the plans have been decided upon we can move to the design stage. This is where we create an illustrated visual showing various schemes and called a 'Mood Board' showing; paint colours, fabric swatches, curtain treatments, flooring types, wood finishes, lighting, furniture, accessories, art, etc.
Once you have chosen a scheme that suits your style and the environment best we can work up a more detailed estimate.
The next stage for us is liaising with the builder/trades to make sure that they understand the scheme and how we want the final vision to look.
We will then start procuring any items you require, so that once the builder has finished we can come into the property and install, assemble, hang and arrange all the items. We always remove the rubbish and get the space professionally cleaned once we have finished so that you can move straight in. Different projects call for different approaches and on some interior design projects it may not be necessary for us to purchase or install furniture etc on behalf of the client. Some of our clients prefer to do this part themselves. However, we offer a full service for anyone requiring it and have many excellent tradesmen who work for us on our projects, as well as a large number of trade accounts so can offer our clients more than is available on the high street.

Which interior design styles can you cater for?

Flippa Interiors can cater for all interiors styles.
We feel this quote sums up our philosophy:
“The essence of interior design will always be about people and how they live. It is about the realities of what makes for an attractive, civilized, meaningful environment, not about fashion or what’s in or what’s out. ”
Albert Hadley

What do you love most about your job?

I love the look on my clients faces when they see the new space I have designed for them.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I grew up in the hotel industry with a father who was hotelier and a mother who was an interior designer. I have had the privilege of working and living in Sweden, India, Indonesia and Australia which all have fabulous design cultures and have really opened up my eyes to colour and style.
I have always been in the design industry but started as an art director in Advertising. I became a interior designer when I had kids as I wanted to run my own business.

Why should our clients choose you?

Why choose Flippa Interiors?:
1) We are a small company, so offer a very personal service
2) We understand briefs, budgets and deadlines
3) We have many happy clients who'd happily recommend us
4) We love what we do.

Cosy Apartment in Henley-on-Thames

Our client was relocating and needed his new rental flat fully furnished and kitted out as it was an unfurnished let. With strong views about it needing to be a place to relax and entertain after work, but with absolutely no experience in interior design, our client wanted us to guide him. We spent time getting to know his likes and tastes so we were then able to come up with a concept for the look of the flat and the style of the furniture. We needed to make sure it would all work cohesively together and in discussions with our client he was clear it needed to feel cosy and welcoming. We introduced warm colours such as burnt orange, tan leather, blues and reds which would compliment the magnolia walls (no decorating of the walls allowed). With the addition of great accessories, such as striped rugs, fantastic Abigail Aherne and OKA cushions we gave the entire apartment a fresh, relaxing and homely feel. We selected and supplied everything from a new bed and mattress right through to cutlery and crockery and with everything in between! All our client had to do was pick the key up from us and enjoy his new home - we did all the rest from coming up with the original design and look through to buying everything and then fitting, installing and even removing all the rubbish and packaging to leave an apartment ready for its new occupant to sit back and enjoy!
