Vicki has been hugely helpful in formulating ideas for a kitchen, lounge and bedroom in a new extension. We had not used an interior designer before and were a bit apprehensive about the process. She talked to us at length to find out what we wanted to achieve, rather than imposing her style on us, but also challenged us to ‘think outside the box’. I’m really looking forward to implementing her exciting ideas – bold colour blocking, here we come!

Vicki has been invaluable in helping us progress our ground floor remodel. We would still be stuck ‘discussing’ kitchen door colours without her.
Her delivery is very professional and I feel she has listened to all opinions throughout the process and then guided us to make the best choices so we will achieve our desired result.
She also encouraged us to be confident with our colour choices and taken a lot of time and effort away from us having to research finishes. Making this process so much easier and quicker with her vast knowledge of products and styles.
I would recommend to anyone who is hesitant in using a designer to book a consultation with Vicki before getting too far into your project. You will not be disappointed in the help and guidance you receive.

I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Vicki on what had been a rather stressful loft conversion. I contacted her quite late in the process because we realised that the head height we were getting wasn’t as high as we had expected and the space was much more awkward than it looked on paper. Immediately, Vicki spotted the issues in our plans and helped us to rearrange the space to get the most that we could from it. Then she worked with me to chose a beautiful colour palette and proposed design ideas that I would never have thought of. Even her help choosing paint colours has meant that we won’t need to go through the 20+ samples we might usually try!! I am now really excited about getting her design completed and moving into our new room.

Vicki was great from start to finish. She took a huge amount of hassle out of the whole project. I wanted my entire house refurbished to bring it together as a whole with a colour theme and style running throughout the house – Vicki discussed ideas with me, sourced products to save me shlepping around all the shops, and also sourced builders – obtaining 3 quotes. She project managed the reform chased up deliveries and negotiated discounts on my behalf. I’m sure she more than paid for herself as a result.

I liked Vicki’s ideas, found her easy to work with, and felt she ‘got’ me and what I wanted as well so she wasn’t just imposing things on me that didn’t feel right. She was approachable if I didn’t like something or wasn’t sure when I saw it in situ rather than just on paper – we changed paint colours early in the process, for example.

She also sourced some unusual items for me on my request – such as a bidet look! It was a bit of an experiment on my part, and we laughed over it, but she found a reasonably priced one and I must say it’s been very popular! She tolerated my love of gadgets and incorporated my smart home ideas into the brief when I added that in half way through.

There were some difficult moments along the way because I stayed in the house for most of the refurb and having builders in your home for 4 months is inevitably stressful, but Vicki did her best to smooth over these moments as much as possible.

I loved the finished result and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her.

I can’t say enough great things about Vicki! She listened to my concerns and was able to bring creative ideas to solve my design dilemmas! Working with Vicki was such a wonderful experience. The consultation with Vicki was like a lesson on colour, fabric or design. I enjoyed every consultation. We have more rooms to finish and I am looking forward to finishing with Vicki.

Vicki’s brief was very broad. We are renovating our large semi-detached house and wanted some professional advice regarding colour schemes, lighting and flooring options.

Vicki truly is very in touch with her clients’ needs. I am so pleased with the design, selection of furniture and décor. She managed to find all furniture etc in a small budget. She proves once and for all that interior designers are not just for the rich and famous! And as a bonus she explained the concepts so well, that I was able to use it throughout our house. Now that is what I would call extreme value for money. Thanks Vicki!

I wanted Vicki Wharton to prepare a design pack for my kitchen sitting room.
The style I requested was for a non fussy modern ,plain furniture,but with a sumptuous feel over all.

Vicki listened attentively to my ideas and showed a passionate, positive and honest attitude for the design process. Throughout the process Vicki was always very accommodating and adaptable.  I was excited to see how the chosen paint pallet, along with the different textures and shapes were expertly pulled together to meet all my requirements . A very happy customer. Highly recommended.

Vicki was happy to tailor her service to our needs and spent over 4 hours going over the house. She had an answer to virtually everything we asked and I was really surprised to be able to choose colours with Vicki’s help by the end of her visit.She is also prepared to be a sounding board for additional queries and has already responded to a couple of questions I forgot to ask while she was here. It’s the first time I’ve ever paid for design advice and I think it was money well-spent.
