“We focus on creating original and individual interiors that express the client's needs and interprets their desires and aspirations. We always aim for comfortable and inspiring environments that feel good to be in, are durable, welcoming and easy to live with in a contemporary context. We want to make sure they feel the home reflects who they are. Versatility is a key quality in the way I work individually with clients. We focus on detail, on what they want to achieve and provide reliable up-to-date professional advice. Whatever the brief and budget, the ambience and feeling they seek needs to come through”. — Babette Hayes
