Testimonials

Vicki has worked on our 7 bed new build as our interior designer for the past two years. She has designed the colour palette and overall style to our taste and helped us choose wallpapers, curtains, furnishings and lighting, even down to choosing paint colours for the garden to marry the two spaces together. She is a really easy person to work with, prompt and friendly with a great eye for colour and style to suit our budget and gives you the feeling you’re in safe hands all the way through a project.

Vicki worked with us on from the start of our 12 month 6 bedroom house renovation project. From the start she patiently worked with us through the seemingly daunting process of agreeing a theme and colour schedules through out all areas of the house and then put into action sourcing the various materials including paint, wallpaper and curtains. Would highly recommend Vicki to anyone who is looking for a professional interior designer

Interior designs for upstairs bedrooms. Very accomodating, working in the evening when necessary, going outside the brief and does above and beyond.

Designs for sitting room, dining room, kitchen and hallway.  Very friendly and polite, took into account all of my tastes and opinions.  Very pleased with the design.

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 proofs 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 through out our house. Now that is what I would call extreme value for money. Thanks Vicki!

Provided whole house schemes for two properties.  Very good listener, very adaptable and accomodating and great ability to manage trades on site. Vicki’s designs are very skilful and she does not force them on you, allowing you to amend them as you wish. Her project management is excellent and she takes all the strain of running a big project off your hands. I used her both for my mother’s flat and for my own house and she was excellent.

Interior design for hallway and loft extension. Flexible and responsive, Vicki wanted to understand what it was we desired with colours and style.

R Johnson, October 2013

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 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.

I am a senior property manager and have worked with Vicki on 5-6 interior design projects. I have always been extremely satisfied with the service and designs, as have my clients, and would highly recommend Balance Design to anyone looking for high quality interior design services.

Interior design of open plan living/dining/kitchen area.  Very in touch with client’s needs.  Extreme value for money! So pleased with the result.

Annelize S, October 2014

Last year we worked with Vicki over a number of months to produce an overall design for our flat which felt calm and comfortable with a hint of colour.  Vicki listened to our wishes and looked very carefully at what we had already that we wanted to keep in the design.  From this she built a design that incorporated the colours that we liked with the style that suited us.  She was conscious of our budget and respectful of our tastes whilst pushing us gently to take a few risks within our design.  We have installed the bathroom and kitchen and we are delighted with the results.  Vicki project managed the installation of the kitchen whilst we were on holidays ensuring that it was clean and ready on our return.  We would thoroughly recommend her to anyone requiring guidance at working out what they want and how to best achieve it.

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
