I thoroughly recommend the design service. Clair gave me the answers to questions that had not occurred to me and suggested some wonderful options and combinations I would never have thought of. Thank you.

"We have been so happy with the results of the Arbuthnott design consultation. We were struggling to find the right look for our 1930's stone house that we were in the process of renovating. Clair talked us through the different aspects of design and styles that she felt would both suit the house and our preferences. She was very patient when we were indecisive with colour and patterns, and gave us large enough samples to picture the finished curtains, and time to make the right choices.
When it came to ordering, Clair measured the curtains and blinds taking all the stress from us making an expensive mistake. We are so pleased with the finished room, it finally looks dressed and fits in with our relaxed life style. We will be using the design service and Clair's expertise to help with the rest of of house."
"I had visited the shop several times trying to narrow down which styles and colour schemes would be suitable for my new orangery and an upstairs bedroom. As the orangery was half built at the time I found it hard to picture how it could be and was unsure where to start with a new and empty space. I liked the range of materials within a colourway and was inspired by the catalogue to put different materials from the same range together in the room and I decided to start the design of the room with the materials but was unsure of my choices. Clair came out to have a look at the two spaces and was a huge help. In the bedroom she considered the way the light entered the room and had the excellent idea to have a roman blind on a smaller window to make the space look bigger. She advised on the size and shape of the lampshades to fit the space and knew which materials from a slightly different range went well with my original choice. She competently measured the windows which I always find stressful, and gave good advice about linings etc.
Clair gave me confidence in my choices for the orangery, a great relief to me, and had very useful suggestions for which blinds to go for and how and where they would be operated from. With her measurements and advice on overlaps for the large windows I felt much more confident buying the long window poles required and had a better idea in my head as to how they would sit when drawn back.
I am delighted with the finished results, I feel that the rooms have an overall harmony while at the same time provide a range of designs that make it more interesting for the eye. The Home Design Consultation was invaluable to me as it gave me confidence in my choices and took away the worry of the technical details. Clair kept in touch with information as to how the order was progressing and was friendly and reassuring throughout."

"I was very impressed with the brochure and samples I received, and it was even better to see the full range of fabrics in the shop. The visits you made bringing fabrics with you to advise and measure were very helpful and we are very pleased with the result."
“I am so pleased I opted for the consultation help at home with you. Your guidance with selecting, measuring and sorting everything has made the whole process an enjoyable experience. I am delighted with the results in each room. Thanks to your skilled ladies who made everything, packaging with such care. Not forgetting the magical effect created by Vanessa’s designs and colours!”
Mr & Mrs B
“We would like to thank you and everyone at the shop for all your help and ideas for our bedroom. We are both very delighted with the results and although we have one or two small things to purchase we have completed all before our family arrive on Saturday. Many thanks to you all.
"Clair I just want to say how much I have enjoyed working with you and hearing your ideas and I am really pleased with the choices I have made. I will certainly spread the word with my colleagues about the service you provide. Thanks again."
