“We have worked closely with Phoebe over the last three years to turn our dream house into a reality and it has been a real pleasure. Our remit was very simple - help us avoid a house of magnolia! Phoebe worked with us in a truly collaborative way to help create a beautiful individual house, full of interesting touches and stand out ideas that really reflects our family and the way we live.”
We found Smartstyle Interiors through an online agency and interviewed a couple of interior designers before choosing Phoebe. I think we thought she was the best fit for what we were hoping to achieve and ‘got us’ as a client. The whole process became fun with the exchange of ideas, guidance and sourcing tradespeople, to bring the project together. She expertly helped selecting fabrics and colours; researched paints and found items of loveliness for us. We are delighted with the results and feel we have achieved what we wanted with her help. Thank you Smartstyle Interiors!
I’d wanted to improve certain areas of my home for years, but lacked both the funds and the confidence in how to go about it. So when I finally got the money together, I needed a professional to hold my hand and show me what was possible; how to make usable the utility area that had been unfinished when I bought the property; what type of wood flooring should I get; and how to make the most of the available space in my teenage son’s cramped bedroom?That’s where Smartstyle came in. Phoebe took on board all the concerns I wanted to address, and pointed out several that had never occurred to me. She drew up different plans for me to choose from, patiently answered all my daft questions, and because I’d chosen to use her project manager service, Phoebe also sourced and liaised with the building firm which carried out the works.It was my first time embarking on a building project of that size and expense, and thanks to Smartstyle it all went so much smoother than I could have hoped for. I’d recommend Phoebe’s services to anyone.
I’ve worked with Phoebe on two separate house renovations in London and Yorkshire. Throughout both projects, I’ve been impressed with her ability to understand and deliver on my requirements, while at the same time helping me to push the boundaries of my decorative taste.Some of the best bits of the designs were things that I wouldn’t have considered if left to my own devices. Phoebe was always on time with what she promised to deliver and persistent in sorting out any problems that arose - not that there were many. Her pricing structure is open and transparent and she understands the restrictions of a budget.All in all, she’s a professional and I’m happy to recommend her work.
Phoebe’s interior design input has had a transformational and entirely positive impact on our south-east London semi. Her open and cheerful approach enabled us to combine our own thoughts with hers with dramatic and wholly beneficial results. Not only does she have refreshingly creative ideas but she also has the product knowledge and contact with specialists and tradespeople to put them into practice. We have ended up with pleasing colours, fabrics and furniture which have combined to create a “wow” factor with which we are delighted and comfortable. We had a productive and enjoyable relationship throughout and would be happy to recommend Phoebe as a very professional, competent and imaginative interior designer who has a particular gift for picking up clues about client preferences and how best to develop and enhance this to produce a mutually acceptable and attractive outcome.
Phoebe did a consultation with me at my property to help me design my living room. I knew I wanted a ‘cosy’ space but I didn’t have a clue where to start. Phoebe helped me visualise the space that I wanted and gave me helpful advice and tips on how to bring it to all to life! I now have the living room that my children and I can enjoy.
Phoebe from Smartstyle interiors was a great choice. We had quite strong ideas about what we wanted and she seemed to know instinctively what materials and fabrics would help us achieve our vision. She clearly had a vast range of experience and training, (not somebody who’s done a nice job of their own house and decided “I could do this as a business”.) her experience and professionalism gave us great peace of mind. I would not hesitate to recommend Smartstyle Interiors both for design and implementation. Thanks Phoebe!
What I have most liked about working with Phoebe is that she helped me express my taste rather than imposing her own.We started with a simple project - colours and soft furnishings in our lounge. Since then, project by project, she has helped us transform our entire house, creating our master bedroom suite (and designing my beloved walk-in closet), planning our bathrooms, and finally putting together our ideal kitchen.She knows how to work with small rooms, always with an eye to maximising usefulness and the sense of spaciousness. Phoebe has been particularly helpful with colour. We wanted a relaxed yet elegant atmosphere, and we could not have achieved that without her expertise.
Phoebe did a great job designing our office here at Naylor Accountancy Services and she has made it a place we all love to come to work. It gives us the modern clean look that we want to emphasis our modern approach to accounting. Clients always comment on how nice and modern our office is and it is functional. We also use the office on our website, for PR and marketing so it has been the best thing we did to get Smartstyle in. I can highly recommend Smartstyle and Phoebe.
Phoebe from Smartstyle has been great in sorting out our dining room. It was a project I had been meaning to get round to for some time and following a recommendation I met Phoebe and she got things sorted! I felt the service was very professional and friendly and gave me the right mix of my original ideas and the Smartstyle touch
I got in touch with Phoebe because like most mums, and people that work for themselves, I tend to be tight on time yet always high on aspiration!I had wanted to re-decorate our master bedroom for several years and had never quite got round to it so it was important to me that whoever took on the challenge could instantly relate to the styles I like and totally understand what I was looking to achieve.Phoebe did this with ease. She expertly unpicked my wish list and tested some of my theories while we talked by delving in to her amazing samples library so that I could picture the types of things we were discussing. Not long after I was presented with a full room concept and it’s fair to say she had hit the nail on the head. The concept was bold and yet warm and inviting and dare I say it ‘grown up!’. I loved it! From then on Phoebes ability to manage the project and all of the finer details has been superb.She has high standards and is therefore someone I trusted to represent me with suppliers and fitters. I would have no hesitation in recommending Phoebe to anyone wishing to re-design their home.
I needed the master bedroom to be redecorated with all furnishings brought together in one attractive scheme, based on specific bedlinen.Smartstyle was knowledgeable, proactive, creative; worked to my fairly tight budget, kept to time schedules and was very pleasant to do business with.
