Natalie has done an outstanding job for our house: she has designed the interior of the house with flair and elegance, while maintaining a welcoming and modern atmosphere in the cottage. She pays attention to details and her decisions are thought through. She has been excellent at working with us remotely - since we are not in country; always replying to email or calls very quickly. With little guidance, she has created a fantastic design where we felt right at home: she was very good at picking what we like/do not like and presenting her ideas in a clear way: her mood boards were excellent. She also did a remarkable job at itemizing all objects/furniture she bought, and at making sure we had reviewed and approved before purchasing them. I have not seen anyone keeping track of budget like her! One of her strong attributes is her flexibility: she has been very good at taking in comments and coming up with alternative solutions and designs, without taking offense; at working with us through emails rather than in person, but also at making herself available when we were in country. Our overall experience with her has been very positive.

Natalie worked on the interior design of my home following building work. She clarified my confused ideas and produced designs that surpassed my hopes. She suggested paint, wallpaper and floor coverings; sourced fabrics for recovering furniture, curtains and blinds. She also suggested and sourced light fittings and mirrors. Recommendations for trades people and suppliers have been excellent. Natalie has been a delight to work with and is reliable, flexible and highly professional, with an enviable eye for colour and design. I have no hesitation in recommending her.

Following a recommendation, we initially asked Natalie to help us design our bedroom. This was such a success (we love it) that she has now designed our Playroom (again fantastic!) and the next project is the Living Room! Natalie's experience, creativity and style, combined with her ability to understand what we were looking for despite our inability to put this into words, has meant she has transformed our house into a stylish and enjoyable home. I would (and have) recommend Natalie to anyone who is overwhelmed by choice, or not sure where to start or has lots of great ideas of how they want a room to look but not sure how to make it all come together. Natalie can design to suit whatever budget you give her.

Having fully renovated an old cottage, I used Natalie's extremely professional advice in order to help decorate and furnish the downstairs rooms. Amazingly she interpreted my rather confused ideas into achievable and stylish rooms. Her help and guidance was invaluable - she was very easy to work with and her eye for detail is superb even when working with a half built house!

We would not hesitate to recommend Natalie as an interior fesigner. We were starting with a brand new house, a totally blank canvas, and didn't know where to start. Natalie very quickly really got under the skin of our tastes and came up with some fantastic mood boards, one for each of the 6 rooms we needed help with. She encouraged us to make some braver (but not outlandish) choices than we would have done left to our own devices but these work so well with the character of our new house. Natalie has helped us to turn a house into a beautiful new home. Natalie is lovely to work with, has an incredible eye for detail, colour, style etc. but also excellent budget control (design flair and budget control do not often go hand in hand!). It sounds decadent to use an interior designer, but it can pay for itself as Natalie has negotiated excellent trade discounts with many suppliers of carpets, beautiful furniture, lighting, etc. We are not quite finished but we have loved working with Natalie on our new home and we are delighted with the results. Nothing is too much trouble for Natalie and her help has been completely invaluable to us.
K Taylor, Bishop Thornton - March 2018
This was our first time hiring an interior designer and we decided to do so as it was a complete remodelling of our living room and far too big a job for us to consider without professional help. I looked through quite a few interior designers and spoke to a few before deciding to go with Natalie, and I'm very pleased I did! Every step of the way Natalie was helpful, professional and flexible. She really seemed to understand our brief from the get-go and her contacts and ability to source items was incredibly useful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Natalie Davies Interior Design, especially if this is your first time hiring a professional to help you with your house.
