In 2018 we took on the conversion of a derelict agricultural building, and we interviewed 6 or 7 designers to work alongside our architect before meeting Stephen. We knew immediately that he was head and shoulders above the others we had met. He initially impressed with his ability to re-imagine the space as a dwelling, and he exceeded expectations in every respect: he is highly competent and professional, thoughtful, knowledgeable, creative, and detail oriented. He is also very responsive and easy to work with; we thoroughly recommend him.
Stephen helped me with a full refurbishment of my flat in 2015/16 and I absolutely cannot recommend him enough. From start to finish Stephen was an absolute lifesaver:
- Keeping a large and complex project running smoothly (and on budget)
- Had meticulous attention to detail - everything was perfect
- Thinking outside the box and translating my often vague ideas into stunning reality
- Finding beautiful finishes and fittings that I couldn't even have thought of
- Managing various contractors and suppliers
And he did it all with a smile and positive attitude even when things weren't going according to plan- always found a solution!
Thank you Stephen!
Residence Interior Design managed a complete refurbishment of our Barbican flat, a big project.
From the start, Stephen excited us by finding exciting tiles, wallpapers and fabric samples that gave our flat a new lease of life while staying true to the spirit of where we live.
He found a suitable contractor, and helped us navigate the paperwork of working on a listed building.
Storage was something we were especially keen to find new solutions for, so he designed bespoke cupboards and shelving for our living room and bedrooms - both useful and lovely to look at.
The process also involved keeping things running smoothly during the inevitable tricky situations with our building contractors. Not his fault, to be noted!
Stephen was always available, always up to speed with the project and always had good suggestions. Highly recommended.
Stephen advised on modifications and upgrades to our flat in Lambeth, on the recommendation of the building manager. We were not disappointed. The work required a licence from the landlord, and building regs approval: he was very helpful on both. We already had a good idea of what we wanted to do, but Stephen added many other creative suggestions, steered us to sensible choices in sanitaryware, introduced us to an excellent builder and managed the project throughout. Very satisfied.
Stephen assisted us with the interior design of aspects of a contemporary new build project. In particular, he helped us to better visualise how spaces might be used and suggested some feature aspects for the house, providing both pictures and samples. I also valued Stephen as a "sounding board" where I had ideas of my own. I would not hesitate to recommend Stephen.
