"I first met Pip about nine years ago when she was running a home staging business. At the time I suspected she was more than just a home stager! I discovered she also had an interior design business. No wonder she did such a great job.
I have since used Pip personally in a number of different occasions ranging from help using colours for painting, sourching new furniture to fit an existing space, choosing new drapes and blinds for my new apartment and also choosing and arranging new fabric on an existing lounge suite.
I have recommended Pip to several clients and friends, all of whom have been consistent in their praise of her work.
The other bonus is she is a really nice person to work with.
I am only too happy for any potential client to ring me."

"Ali was a lifesaver. Whilst I had built houses before, and pride myself on good interior design skills, I was completely overwhelmed and unable to make a decision on this occasion. We were building a new house, and decisions needed to be made, I had gone from confidently knowing what I wanted, to being crippled with uncertainty. And then came Ali. She quickly could see what I was trying to achieve, and with no fuss, confirmed colour choices for bathrooms, carpets, paint and tiles. She was just wonderful. She also spent time with me sorting through curtain samples, and demonstrated extreme care for detail in helping me create a unique design for my youngest girl's curtains. I would happily recommend Ali, and would use her again without hesitation. Thank you Ali for making what was a nightmare of a time for me, a dream outcome."

"When we needed help choosing colours, fabrics and furnishings during the renovation of our home we asked Ali Brown. We had seen another home where she had done the interior design and we loved what she had done. Our expectations were surpassed. Not only did she quickly get onto our wave-length as to what we were trying to achieve (and encourage us to be bold) she made the whole renovation so much easier and fun. She took all the hard work out of it for us by sourcing fabrics and furnishings and selecting colours while still giving us choices. We would highly recommend her to anyone wanting her flair and professional, very reasonably-priced advice."

"I have used Pip on two occasions - once to refurbish our formal lounge and another time to advise on paint and carpet colours during a recent renovation. She is always so helpful and generous with her fabulous interior design ideas. Moreover she is a true professional and is so easy to work with. Happy to work with existing pieces and colours where necessary, Pip is realistic with her ideas and suggestions.
She is happy to share her knowledge and contacts through local stores or websites.
I really valued her input and admire her eye for detail.
I would not hesitate to recommend her guidance to friends."

"We have used Pip twice now.
The first time was to 'homestage' a house we were selling. She did a magnificent job particulary as you would think you were walking into a house that was lived in. The house sold very quickly!
The second time was to look at the interior of our house after we had finished renovating it.
The existing furniture had been bought for another house and style and we wanted a new and fresh look. 
She discussed what we wanted to achieve and the type of interior we wanted. 
She took us to look at furniture and fabrics and was very patient with us as we didn't really know what we wanted. The final decisions were of course ours but we knew she could visualise what it would look like and we put our faith in her.
We ended up with a fabulous interior and we are delighted with it.
This is the first time that we have had furniture that looks like it belongs together and everything works very well together.
I would have no hesitation in using Pip again."

"We were first introduced to Pip in 2008 when we wanted help decorating after recent renovations. We had a difficult space to work with, and a mish mash of furniture. With Pip's help, we created a cohesive and welcoming space, whilst still retaining our personalities.
We have since moved into a new family home, and have once again called on Pip to help us create the kind of home that we want to reflect our family. Warm and welcoming mixed with a bit of fun!
Being busy parents with three small children, we have found Pip's advice invaluable. The combination of her design knowledge and her understanding of our likes and dislikes means she is able to source the right options for us and help us make the right choice for the space - saving us time and money.
We will always consult Pip when choosing new furniture or decorating our home. We have no hesitation in recommending Pip to anyone looking for interior design advice. She is affordable, clever in what she does, and friendly to work with."

"It started as a DIY paint job, but we were not certain about the colour choice.....and along came Ali! We have not looked back since inviting Ali to our home to share with us her expertise and give our home a facelift. She possesses a natural talent and flair for complimenting colours and the entire process was about what we liked, what would work best, and what suited us. She is attentive to detail and Ali always kept us well informed, we love reliability. We would happily recommend Ali to anyone considering a fresh home."

"Hiring Ali helped us to achieve the wow factor we were looking for in our kids bedrooms. Every time I walk into our kids rooms I always smile. I absolutely love every little bit of them and wouldn't change a thing. Ali was very professional, knowledgeable and understanding of our needs and wants and an overall pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend her to anyone."
