“Doris and I worked together to create a new look for a series of shots to showcase my Autumn/Winter ‘14 Collection, including new wallpapers, cushions and furniture. Previously my interiors shots were all mocked up and felt a bit staid. I had worked on an interiors project where my wallpaper had been used and Doris came up with the idea of extending the project and creating these evocative and lively shots.
Doris created mood boards and setting ideas prior to the photoshoot. She came up with different concepts and feels which was amazing. Interiors is a myth to me as it’s all about mixing textures and feels but she has a really excellent natural feel for this. She’s able to mix old and new sourced objects to create an industrial edge that isn’t too feminine but is still accessible and modern and full of vibrant colours.”

“On moving to a new house, a small initial scope became a 2 month project and on Doris’s advice walls were rightly knocked down, making a more usable family space.
Doris has made herself available throughout the project (often including outside of normal office hours!) and spent considerable time understanding my requirements and project managing the building company. We have not had any conflicts with the builders and Doris has always been friendly, yet firm when appropriate. She ensures the finishings are to her high standards. Where there were issues Doris took responsibility and ensured they were quickly resolved.
Doris has chosen some stunning floors which everyone has commented on. Doris is also brilliant with working with your ideas so it has been a collaboration rather than, as with some other interior designers, a push of her own ideas. My interior furnishings brief was unique, drawing on my East African and Indian heritage and Doris has embraced this and sourced some really fantastic pieces within my budget.
I would recommend Doris to anyone. For those who haven’t used a designer before and are not sure whether to, she has certainly added value to my project and had ideas and suggestions I wouldn’t have had myself despite having a keen interest in all things property related. And for those who do regularly use designers, you will find her a refreshing change with an open mind and fabulous ideas.”

“We entrusted the redesign of our double reception room to Doris.
We are absolutely delighted with the end result and the rooms have been transformed into a casual but chic area where we can relax and enjoy family life.
Doris’ attention to detail is impeccable and the personal touches she has included have added a lovely unique touch to the space.
Throughout the whole process Doris has been professional and as well as being a fantastic designer, she has also been able to effectively and smoothly project manage all the building works causing minimum disruption to our family.
We would not hesitate to recommend Doris and look forward to working with her on our next project.”
