It was really a case of Nicky Mudie to the rescue. I have two newly built flats in central Kensington that I wanted to decorate and furnish for the rental market. This was well outside my comfort zone.
Nicky prepared the schedule and budget to aim for an above average rent for the area, very helpful to repay the building costs. From being quite a daunting task, the project has become great fun. Nicky has coordinated with the builders to make sure that everything was carried out to the highest standard. The results have been stunning and at a cost which is surprisingly affordable.
Particularly impressive have been the Violet & George support staff, who have obtained all the furnishings and fabrics very smoothly, and taken an enormous amount of responsibility off my shoulders.
Greenery symbolises the importance and beauty of natural aesthetics, and according to the practice of fengshui, the colour green is nourishing to your health and well-being as it balances the whole body and brings vibrations of healing from nature to your home decor and health through balancing your connection.

It’s a common conundrum; do you opt for the clean lines and maximum storage potential of neat (but expensive) built-in cupboards or do you stick with the simple solution of a freestanding wardrobe? The latter has the benefit of flexibility – whether you’re switching rooms around or moving house – but it will never fit as much stuff as a wall-to-wall storage system designed to accommodate every clothing item you own. Freestanding wardrobes are sometimes seen as inferior due to poor placement or the wrong style being used in a scheme, but don’t be deterred! These excellent examples should help to win you over.
