"I have used the Sally Bourne colour consultancy service twice now and I highly recommend it. The first time was for a kitchen/diner and two reception rooms. I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted but, I had some concerns about ensuring flow throughout the open spaces. I also wanted some technical advice on how to incorporate/differentiate skirting, picture rails, architraves into the scheme.
I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and working with Lucy. She was able to take what we'd discussed and translate it into a colour palette that was absolutely perfect. Each room was considered individually and then all rooms considered together to ensure a consistent effect throughout.
The second time, I asked Lucy to help me with 3 bedrooms. This time I didn't have any specific requirements, I left it to Lucy to make recommendations. The look we decided on for my bedroom wasn't something I would have thought of doing and I absolutely love it.
So whether you have an idea of what you want or you're looking for inspiration, I would definitely recommend this service."
Laura Baruch, Muswell Hill
"We've been in our new build house since 2007, and I could no longer ignore how the paintwork had been at the mercy of 3 young children. It was bland, and awash with dirty handprints!
I used the colour consultancy service because I wanted the opinions, and creative flair of someone with a trained eye - and was totally thrilled with the service I received.
Lucy Muggeridge was both professional and terrifically helpful throughout. She used what was already in the house to inform her choices, and very attentively went about finding out what I wanted. She struck the perfect balance with suggestions that were tasteful and avoided being boring; plus when I asked questions - her design training meant she could articulate why she'd made certain choices and how they'd work. She also went beyond the remit of the job, and ended advising on wallpaper, curtains, workmen etc. (Also worth mentioning, a wallpaper sample Lucy forwarded for a downstairs toilet. When it arrived it's appeal was lost on me. However, I had to concede it was so cleverly thought through - it didn't take long to see it was an inspired choice. We hung it and it looks terrific!)
It was worth every penny and I couldn't recommend the service highly enough"
Alison, Muswell Hill
"We used the design services of Sally and her colleagues during the renovation of our house.
Our initial thought was to paint the interior one colour but after a colour consultation we soon changed our minds. Sally was able to recommend a colour scheme that would enhance and compliment the style of the house. We were amazed to see how colour changes not only from room to room but from wall to wall. It was possible to change the mood/feel of a room just by adding a different shade. The staff in Sally's shop were very helpful in ordering all the chosen makes of paint and ensured they were ready and delivered on the days they were needed. The written report, provided as part of the colour consultation, proved invaluable to everyone, especially our decorators, coping with which colours should be used in each room.
On a recommendation from Sally we used Sian for all our curtains and blinds. A consumate professional, Sian assisted us with choosing and sourcing fabrics, custom-made curtain rods etc while taking all the measurements herself. Her team made all the curtains and blinds and worked evenings and weekends to ensure everything was ready and installed on time.
The upholsterers, Simon and Jason, had their work cut out renovating some impulse buys from auction and antique shops. The end result was furniture looking better than new in the fabrics of our choice. Their hand-made furntiure completed the look of the house.
When visitors come everyone sees and likes something different and that is due to all the people who helped create our home.
Thanks to all involved."Chris and Alberto, Crouch End
"We hadn't moved for years so felt we needed lots of support to restore our new house - a Victorian period property with a basically sound structure but awful presentation. We needed help to choose, wooden floors, new cornices, stained glass, tiling etc but it really needed a good eye for colour.
Sally entered the house and immediately knew what to do, not just with colour, but with everything else too. She saved us so much time, money and stress through her experience and taste.
Her decorator, Tania, plus team were charming and efficient with a real obsession for detail. Tania seemed to know everything there was to know about anything and was incredibly calm, supportive and trustworthy. We bought into a whole world of talented tradesmen and women of just about every skill possible. They were all well organised, pleasant to have around and filled us with confidence.
It was a great experience and makes us feel like moving house again! We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the whole package to anyone whether they needed their hand holding or not!"Marianne & Vernon, Muswell Hill
"I am useless with colours and our house was a hotch potch of messy yellows, scrappy violets and so on. Sally came and worked her magic with her flash cards of colour. We followed her advice and the house now looks like somewhere I always imagined living in but thought I never would. She has an astonishing talent for colour and a vast knowledge of paint and products. She also has a great contact list with suggestions for people who can do almost anything to a house. I can't speak highly enough of her."Melanie McFadyean, Stoke Newington
"Just a note to say how delighted I am with the colours you chose for the kitchen and sitting room here in Ingram Road. They look absolutely perfect and I’m thrilled with both rooms. I would never have achieved the look by myself – you have worked your magic once again! If you are passing do drop in and have a look".
Charlotte Bradshaw, East Finchley
"Being the sort of person who can see when something looks amazing but completely unable to put it together by myself, I asked Sally Bourne to come round and help me choose a neutral palette for my living room walls. Her amazing eye suggested not only paint colour but all kinds of small details to the existing organisation of the room, including things I would never have thought of. Working with what I already had she completely redesigned the space and provided a report with a list of all the people who could carry it out for me. It was the best money I’ve ever spent, worth every penny. I can’t recommend her highly enough. "Linda Grant
