This lovely Victorian terraced house had been a rental property for several years and having recently returned from working in Australia the clients wanted to redecorate throughout. They already had some key pieces of furniture en-route so we helped create an eclectic feel mixing modern and vintage. Once the designs were agreed we project managed through to final completion, overseeing a new kitchen being installed, old flooring renovated and oiled, new blinds and curtains being made and fitted, some beautiful lighting fitted and the house fully decorated throughout. The finish was homely with quirky touches.
“We worked with Ceri at Nest Interior Design in 2015 after a few years of working abroad during which we rented out our UK property. The house needed attention to get it back to feeling like our home. Nest really stuck out with their schemes (modern but accessible) and the Nest team sealed the deal with their responsiveness.
Ceri helped us with a new kitchen and design schemes throughout our 4-bed house.
The process started with us collating ‘looks’ we liked on Pinterest and agreeing the extent of Nest’s flexible design service for each room. Ceri then came back with design boards and detailed costings. She was accommodating with any required changes but these were few and far between as she really nailed the brief. As an additional service, Nest also project managed the work and brought in tradespeople they had previously worked with.
We have never used an interior designer before and had perhaps thought previously it was just in the realms of the rich and famous. However, we are delighted with the finished house and feel that by using Nest we have the achieved our aim of a modern, more coordinated home that works with existing furniture but still within a realistic budget. Ceri gave invaluable advice on where to spend (light fittings, quality blinds etc) and where savings could be made (paint, carpets, tiles). She suggested changes that we just would not have thought of (new colour wash for our wooden floors, changes to door handles), lots of different suppliers we would have never have come across and gently pushed us outside our comfort zone. Overall we were delighted with our experience.”
