“The ground floor of our house had not been refurbished for over 12 years and had become tired and dated. The ground floor consists of a living room, dining room, family room, kitchen, hallway, study and conservatory.
Given the scale of the project, we were aware that we would need assistance with both the interior design and project management of the refurbishment work. Following various meetings with interior designers and project managers, we chose to work with Fawn Interiors as there was clearly a great chemistry between ourselves and Tamsin and Robert who we found to be friendly and full of excellent ideas.
As part of some very productive planning meetings and discussions, it was agreed that the size of our kitchen was not commensurate with the size of the house and the modern way of living whereby the kitchen is a focal point of the house. Robert used his design and construction expertise to show us how we could take space from the study and an unused passageway behind the existing kitchen wall to substantially increase the size of the kitchen. This has enabled us to create a modern kitchen with, amongst other things, a large island with hob and breakfast area. Robert also suggested that we replace the existing single door from the kitchen to the dining room with a set of double sliding pocket doors so that the kitchen and dining room could either be used as an open plan space or the dining room closed off for more intimate dining occasions. This has enabled us to have the best of both worlds and given us great flexibility in the use of the space. Finally, the dining room had a single door onto a patio and Robert showed us how we could replace the single door with elegant french double doors so that the patio can be used for pre-dinner and other entertaining.
We found Tamsin and Robert to be equally imaginative and creative in all other areas of the project and we are extremely pleased with the end result. Friends and family have also been wowed by the transformation of our home with comments such as it looks like it comes from the pages of a magazine.
Both Tamsin and Robert were both hands on and willing to give their time as much as necessary. Tamsin was tireless in locating suitable furnishings from both big ticket items such as sofas and curtains to finishing touches such as rugs and light bulbs. This ensured that the whole of the ground floor was co-ordinated in terms of style and colour and flowed from room to room. Robert closely supervised the work undertaken by the builders, plumbers, electricians and floor layers attending on site to ensure that the work was performed in the agreed manner and to the agreed standard. Robert also designed a bespoke audio visual system which is housed in the living room. The system includes a wall mounted 55" OLED television, amplifier, sub-woofer, sound bar and music throughout the downstairs by means of ceiling speakers. The whole system is encased behind custom-made panelling with integral storage for DVDs, Blu-Rays and CDs so that the system is hidden and does not detract from the elegance of the living room.
Due to additional work and higher specifications in a number of areas, the budget increased but these increases were discussed as and when they arose so that no additional costs were incurred without our prior agreement. Tamsin issued weekly invoices which we appreciated as it meant that our cash flow could be effectively monitored and controlled.
Based on our experience, we are extremely pleased with the work, attitude and commitment of Tamsin and Robert and they would be our first port of call should we decide to have any further work done to our home.”

“Based on my experience, without hesitation I would engage the services of Fawn Interiors Studio again. From point of enquiry through to delivery, I received a first class service – something I very rarely experience or get the opportunity to say.
Fawn Interiors not only brought a wealth of experience and creativity to my project, but are one of the most professional, efficient and pleasant companies that I have had the pleasure of working with – nothing was too much trouble and on occasion even delivering ahead of schedule. Due to: clear communications, responsiveness to feedback, frequent/pro-active updates and flexibility, I had every confidence in their delivery capability, and I was not to be disappointed.
I very much looking forward to implementing the designs which they so tirelessly worked with me to achieve.”

"Tamsin at Fawn Interiors Studio helped us with the interior design of our dream house. Getting it right was very important for me, so I was looking for an interior designer who would help translate these dreams into reality within the budget we had. Tamsin was fantastic! She openly listened to all our concerns and provided various ideas and solutions for the project. She was so approachable and was extremely prompt in replying to our queries. Her recommendations created a truly personal space that is so perfect for us! I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a well designed home for now and the future.”
