I must admit to being a little hesitant about the concept of using an interior designer in the beginning, wondering whether it might be a lazy option? However, Dorota soon made me realise that these reservations were a nonsense!

We enlisted her services to help us create a vision for our lounge (having spent 2 years in the “what should we do with this space?” stage). She listened carefully to the ideas that we did have and was sympathetic to these ideas, whilst encouraging us to be brave and move a little out of our comfort zone. Thank Goodness we did as we love the look of our new lounge and have learnt lots from her in the process.
Bearing in mind this has been a relatively small project for Dorota, she has always been extremely responsive and committed, demonstrated by the fact that she has met us in town at a weekend to try out sofas and has visited the house on numerous occasions to check current progress.

I can not recommend Dorota highly enough - excellent value for money, very professional, friendly and skilled at what she does.

I thoroughly recommend using Dory to help transform your home! She has helped us with the bedrooms, hallway and living room. She made suggestions for things we hadn't even thought of, helped narrow down the choices for us and saved us time in sourcing and ordering things for us. We have enjoyed working with her and would happily seek her advice again on future room projects More...

We had a side and back extension built to our Victorian semi-detached home in one of St Albans’ conservation areas and had the opportunity to update the whole house as part of the project. We called in Dory to create a consistent look for our home and to make some of the big decisions like flooring materials and colours fast and with confidence.
Dory was so lovely as well as professional to work with. She listened to our likes and wishes and developed a plan that looks so “us”, although we would never have achieved it by ourselves. She was also very flexible and came up with alternative, creative ideas, when some details needed to change mid-flight.

I would happily recommend Dory for big and small projects!

Dory really helped us with a redesign of our entire downstairs plus some rooms upstairs. She took on-board our vision and had some really creative ideas. Dory took us out of our comfort zone which was great. She is very down to earth and approachable which helps when you are going through the stress of a refurb. More...

I did work experience and I cannot say how much time and effort Dory puts into all her projects. It is truly amazing. She is so kind and would be perfect to design anyone’s home. The ideas she has are out of this world. More...

Oh my goodness, I simply cannot recommend Dory enough. We had a ground floor rear extension, but the layout and works basically meant our entire ground floor would need redecorating. We were also completely refurnishing as our furniture was either inherited from the previous owners or temporary until we did the building project. We knew we wanted to escape our boring/safe beige look, but couldn't envisage what to do instead. We had a blank canvas but didn't really know where to start....and could see us spending hours trawling the internet but still feeling clueless. When I met Dory (and a few other interior designers), the cynic in me thought we wouldn't go further than the initial consultation. However, after meeting Dory we were hooked. She was so enthusiastic and immediately had a great vision - we had complete confidence in her and her ideas from the get go. Dory managed to take our vague thoughts on what we would and wouldn't like and come up with something incredible. Dory's commitment throughout the project was amazing - always available to provide different budget options or general guidance by email, phone or in person....including popping round when to get the light positions spot on when the electricians were here...and the next day after I'd sent a late night message with concerns about the size of our kitchen breakfast bar (I suspect it was in a moment of sleep deprived mum of two under two craziness, but she was awesome and put my loopy mind at ease!). There is no way we'd have come up with what we've got on our own, nor would we have had the confidence to do it. Thank you, Dory - we love it. My only worry now is that I'll never be able to make an interior design decision without knowing what Dory would do! More...

I hired the services of Moodesignz after a friends recommendation. Dory came for a consultation to discuss options for our 3 rooms which involved changing the use of 2 of them. I got 3D views and mood boards with plenty of product suggestions! Often with us picking the first item recommended. Overall the rooms flow together nicely and we have received many many complements on the design. It's like it fits your house style nicely so you feel you could have come up with it as not out there but in reality of course you couldn't that's why you hired Dory! Fully recommend. More...

Dory helped design 3 rooms for us in our house when we moved and we're unable to decide how to use the space. Having not used an interior designer before Dory came recommended and immediately was able to come up with new ideas which worked really well with how we lived. Being someone who is incredibly fussy Dory suggested countless items until i got the one I loved or gave multiple options often with me going with the first suggested as she has a great eye for detail. What we are now left with us a great looking house which isn't something I would of come up with myself however is something that is "us". Thank you and fully recommend! More...

Dory has been an absolute pleasure to work with,we found her on web and had a quick chat with her to come and visit the property which required considerable transformation,What stuck with us, was that right away Dory showed genuine excitement and great vision around the possibilities. We had never gone through a redesign or worked with a designer before and was unsure of the whole process. Dory asked us lot of questions about what we like,listened to our ideas and brought back a vision that was awesome! She did such a great job of ensuring the design was something that we would love. She is relentless in ensuring the optimal solution given any constraints that we may have in terms of budget or taste. She was always accessible whether over email/phone/in-person whenever we had to resolve/clarify any issues.The end result was phenomenal, one that we couldn't imagine getting to on our own, but it feels 100% ours...and we love it! She is a professional, friendly, creative, and great to work with and she has some great contacts in the industry from where she can source almost anything that you ask for.We highly recommend her!

I would recommend Dorota. She is very passionate, talented, full of ideas and very adaptable. She has pushed us to think more broadly about colours and has picked some beautiful pieces for our house. I can't wait to see it all come together. More...

I can highly recommend Dorota from Moodesign. From start to finish she listened to our views and came up with some fantastic ideas. She sourced some beautiful and unique materials which I would never have found on my own. Dorota took away a lot of the stress when planning to decorate a whole house, she was always at the end of the phone. I am very proud of the end design. More...

Q&A

Before the process begins, I offer a free design consultation during which we discuss the project on hand, talk about timescales and budgets.

This is followed by a detailed briefing session during which we talk about different design ideas and styles, agree on budgets, timelines and involvement. I offer full 360 home redesign (design work, sourcing, project management) but can also tailor my services to suit the project needs (design work only, design & sourcing etc)

My design style is predominantly modern with a quirky twist.
