Karina's townhouse Wokingham
Karina and husband Antonio, busy professionals with 2 year old Alice, live in a modern 3 story town house. After 2 years living with old decor and furniture it’s time to update.The family room adjoins the kitchen and it’s used mostly at the end of the day, to come together as a family to cook, chat and play with Alice before bedtime.
The room is rectangular in shape, so its easy to make the mistake of placing furniture on opposite sides of the wall. So space definition and function is crucial. The space works hard as a dining and entertaining area, as well as Alice's play room, so we used a light, soft colour palette. Introducing contemporary new seating, a rug, lamps and pictures to create a cosy family room with plenty of toy storage!
Annie did a fantastic job redesigning our family room and living room. Being a very indecisive person and not having many skills in interior design and how to combine things, working with Annie was definitely the best investment for a peace of mind!
Annie was able to understand our needs and lifestyle, and was very creative, making the best use of the space and creating a stylish yet comfortable place. She created nice 3D visualisations, put together a colour palette to be used in the whole house (great to have this sorted!), suggested wallpapers options, always making sure we were happy. Annie also gave me lots of advice while I was looking for furniture, including how to be practical in my decisions having a toddler at home.
To be honest I would have spent much more time to think everything through without her, and for sure I would have missed many opportunities for improvement. The presented 3D images were above my expectations, and it is very nice to see the rooms from several angles. Annie also helped me to push the boundaries and think outside the 'match-match' box, which is great! Not to mention the lovely chats we had through zoom. I now feel more freedom and less concerned about exploring colours and patterns. So, without hesitation I recommend Annie to everyone searching for a high quality, fast and friendly interior designer!
Thank you very much Annie, it was a pleasure!
