We asked Carmen to come and give us some ideas on how we could better use our favourite area of our house that was being under utilised before we proceeded with a kitchen renovation. Carmen came in with amazing ideas that flowed and created a vision for us that not one of the previous three kitchen designers had seen or thought of. She sketched 2 possible ideas free hand which gave us the confidence to pick our current design. We were so impressed we asked Carmen to draw formal plans we could take with us to get consistent quotes. Not only do we now have those but also a folio consolidating our ideas for finishes and checklists on how to proceed. We would highly recommend (and have) carmen’s services to anyone who needs someone with creative solutions to any renovation. Thanks Carmen. Lena and Tim

Carmen has the perfect combination of creativity, practical advice and flair. Carmen recently helped us design wardrobes for our 1930s home – her suggestions and designs were fantastic she really helped us maximise the use of space and avoid making decisions which restricted bedroom layout options. I highly reccomend Carmen for design and decorating advice large or small . Anastasia and Mathieu

I have had the pleasure of working with Carmen, and I have been in awe of all that she is achieving with her design business. Carmen’s enthusiasm for what she does is contagious, and I am always confident in the guidance and expertise she offers me, her attention to detail, her respect from her clients and her skilled awareness in getting the best possible outcome for everyone she works with. I am lucky to have met someone as lovely and professional as Carmen and look forward to using her on my next project. Julie

My gifted creative friend. Thank you for the time and amazing transformation of my home. I especially love the way you created a guest bedroom and made the space much more welcoming. Just by moving our furniture around in the bedroom you managed to make such a huge difference. I am sure it will make a big difference in how quickly we sell. I appreciate all you did.

Honestly I don’t know what we would have done without you to help us the design of our garden. You changed our mind on what we were going to do with the front of our new home and honestly it is so much more practical and beautiful than anything we had imagined. When you  suggested a courtyard our eyes lit up as we can now entertain out there and we now have a whole new living space.  Thanks so much for your help and advice throughout the project.

After years of procrastination I contacted Carmen to help us with our main bathroom renovation. She listened to our ideas and helped formulate with us a beautiful plan to go forward that suited both our wants and style of home. Not only was Carmen so generous of her time, she offered us a list of trades and suppliers to make our vision a reality. I would recommend her professional services to all my family and friends.

Carmen was great from the start. When she came to our home we knew exactly what to expect. She provided me when wonderful hints and tips that were inexpensive and ideas on ways to incorporate our existing furniture. Carmen was professional, friendly, extremely helpful and affordable. We jump at the opportunity to tell our friends and family about Carmen and recommend her to anyone who wants assistance with styling their home, renovating to rent or styling and renovating to sell. Next home we purchase we will be calling Carmen as soon as we move in, before we spend a dollar on anything.

We were floundering and idea-less with our renovation until Carmen lit the spark with her suggestions for how to progress. She nurtured rather than directed us throughout and lead us along the journey. A big thank you Carmen for all your help.
