Lara was a delight to work with at all times and she brought tremendous energy and style to our home renovation. She has a fantastic eye for colours and finishes and suggested many concepts and pieces that would not have occurred to us, and which look fantastic. She really stretched our ideas of how good an interior could look. Her style is sophisticated, yet warm and personal, whilst avoiding fads and cliches. She has a great sense for the interplay of colours, fabric and light. Lara was also practical and flexible and worked to incorporate our existing pieces into the design and was sensitive to our budget and practical needs. Lara was very helpful with finding and organising tradesmen, which was a great help to us as we were overseas for much of the project. We would enthusiastically recommend Lara and would not hesitate to work with her in future.

Lara has impeccable style and is a dream to work with. We engaged her to make some significant changes to our entrance, kitchen, living and outdoor areas. She understood our needs immediately and came back with concepts that were spot on - her suggestions consistently had the perfect mix of style and practicality. We really valued her ability to propose things that pushed us out of comfort zone - things that we would never have thought of ourselves but fell in love with as soon as we saw them. Lara also has excellent attention to detail, always delivered on time and is helpful and cooperative in liaising with third parties. I have no hesitation in recommending Lara to anyone that wants to transform their home into something they will love.

Lara was an absolute pleasure to work with. She has impeccable taste but at the same time was happy to include my ideas too. Although I loved my new home, I was new to mid century modern design. Lara made so many lovely recommendations and shared her knowledge of the many good quality places she knows but that I would never have found. Each piece was carefully selected and worked together beautifully. Lara is so generous with her knowledge and I learned so much from her. Now I enjoy coming home and seeing the results every day.

Lara was recommended to us to help us update our tired terrace. We absolutely love the transformation. Lara is the ultimate professional, nothing was and is too much trouble and she is so efficient and eager to find the perfect pieces be it furniture, colour, flooring, accessories or art. We feel like she has become one of the Family and anyone who is lucky enough to work with her will find the process of renovating stress free as Lara takes all the stress out of decision making.

We chose Lara to assist us with the overwhelming task of our interior colours including carpets, curtains, joinery and walls, of an extensive renovation. Lara's ideas provided us with confidence to use colour and neutrals to create a calm and sophisticated palette. Even when we felt some colours were not quite right, Lara continued to search for the perfect combination, in her words 'I want to find something you love'. Lara also provided invaluable advice with our final ceiling design, which we changed from the original architectural drawings. Her lighting suggestions helped us to choose some beautiful pieces which we would not have otherwise discovered or had the confidence to choose. We would highly recommend Lara to assist with interior design, she is a delight to work with.
