Julia Alexander - Client Testimonial

Some comments from our clients...

"Julia was a breath of fresh air and it was a pleasure working with her from the first meeting through to the final handover.
We feel that we’ve met someone who is consummately professional, talented, patient, and incredibly hard-working and committed to seeing the project through. Julia shared her ideas, and intuitively sensed what we liked and disliked. Her initial presentation was flawless. She presented her ideas clearly, and listened carefully to what we had to say. The experience of working with her has been exciting, pleasant and her attention to detail has been consistent throughout the process.
We look forward to working with her again and would recommend her unreservedly to anyone looking for a stylist or interior designer / decorator."

Steve and Lisa, Property Developers, Muswell Hill

"Julia utterly transformed my room from barely-liveable-hand-me-down into a place that feels like a beautiful sanctuary all of my own. Her easy charm and warmth belie a woman gifted with not only the ability to imagine how a space could evolve, but also the wonderfully practical ability to make it happen: to plan, to time, to cost, to source and to manage the whole operation seemingly without breaking a sweat. Her enthusiasm for the work, no matter how big or small, no matter how expansive or (in my case) tight the budget is and her attention to those details that make a difference between something generic and something unique and creative are quite remarkable. I really appreciated her willingness to patiently figure out with me what I wanted from the space. She’s on top of all trends and all avenues to realise them. I wouldn’t hesitate for a nanosecond to recommend Julia as the fairy godmother of home styling."
N. Howard, Hampstead

"I recently had the pleasure of working with Julia in conjunction with the property I had on my books for sale, the property was on the market but was not producing any interest. Julia was brought in to cast her professional eye over the property. She has marvellous ideas and made a few very simple changes that made a vast difference. Within a few weeks we had a couple of people fighting over the property which was then sold. I would have no hesitation in employing Julia’s services again. Thank you."
Raphael Phillips, Houseman Properties Estate Agents

"Julia is one of the most amazing people I've met. Julia is so vibrant and makes everyone in the room smile. Julia is also an outstanding networker.
Julia also helped us to think of our house in a much more creative way and we can't wait to work with Julia to put her ideas in place. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Julia for her interior design services."

Jeremy Freeman, Hertfordshire

"Julia is great to work with as she is very well organised and always has everything specified to detail when I arrive at the site, which is exactly what you want as a decorator and is not always the case with others.
She also has a great ability to always do what is right for the room aesthetically and practically which in my experience has always resulted in 100% customer satisfaction."

Paul Alwin, Owner Decorating Company

"Our property had been on the market a while and wasn't selling. Julia provided great advice on what needed to be changed and helped us keep in mind the target buyers. She helped us view the house objectively and see what buyers would see. Julia advised us on how to make only the necessary changes and helped us with our budget by re-using items around the house and in storage.
Julia also seemed to be able to inject some enthusiasm into my mother! I think after feeling dejected she now sees that moving date being realistic. It made the transformation so much easier, but it still looks like a new house!
The feedback from buyers on the new-look house has been great and the estate agent is confident we can get the sale price we want now.
Thanks for all your help Julia and we have no hesitation in recommending you."

Andrew Black, Hertfordshire

"Julia is such a positive and warm person. She has an amazing ability to see creatively, so I saw the rooms in my house in a fresh new way. She got me to overcome my resistance to de cluttering and made me enthusiastic about it."
Carole Nyman, Muswell Hill

"Julia has the enviable skill of combining her creative flair with an unerring attention to detail. A meticulous organiser who generates ideas and delivers on those in an efficient and friendly manner."
Waheed Aslam, Chiswick

"If I could sum up Julia in one word it would be "organised"! Her meticulous planning and organisation enable her to be super-efficient which is something I've grown to appreciate during times we have worked together. If the key elements you're after in an interior designer are a key eye for detail, organisation and natural talent then you need look no further than Julia."
Russell Chesler, Borehamwood

"Julia has helped us plan out the interior of cottages we have acquired, straight, to the point, no nonsense, and over delivered what I expected."
Jeffrey Lerner, Barnet

"It has been a pleasure to work with Julia. She was extremely efficient in overseeing our move, and helping us prepare our home for sale after our move abroad. I cannot recommend her highly enough!"
Fred S. Worms OBE PhD(Hon), Highpoint, Highgate

"Julia was great to work with and exceptionally organised. As she has a network of contacts and trusted suppliers she also removes the hassle and makes redesigning your home an enjoyable experience, invaluable if you don't have time to organise the work yourself."
Dr S.Harris, East Finchley

"As we set about the task of decorating our new house, we couldn't afford to employ a full-time interior designer, but Julia provided a fabulous consultation that provided detailed advice as to how we might move forward, as well as where we might source materials. She took the time to understand our taste and ideas, and built upon these in her consultation. I was grateful for her dedicated time, energy, flexibility and inspiration."
Devika and Tom, Islington

"I was so impressed with Julia when I attended an excellent interior design course she ran, that I asked her to provide me with a consultation for my building project at home. Julia was so helpful in the consultation; she had excellent ideas, put lots of effort in, and was confident without being pushy. She helped me feel much calmer about my project, and after the consultation she went out of her way to contact me with further thoughts and suggestions. She was altogether lovely to work with!"
Katie Ruback, Finchley

"Julia staged our 3 bedroom property with a view to maximise value as we put it on the market. She started by going through the property in detail room by room and identifying the changes we'd make. She recommended vendors such as painters, cleaners, removal companies etc and gave us a list of affordable dressings to finish the staging. She was a pleasure to work with, very contactable throughout and her communication was fantastic. After we made her changes, Julia came and "staged" the property. The whole process happened in record time, with the only hold ups being on our side. We invested around 0.5% of the value of the property into the staging. We had 4 valuations before hiring Julia all consistent at the same value. We had 4 valuations after the staging, all consistent at 10% higher in value. We have just accepted an offer on the property at the higher valuation. We can't thank Julia enough for helping us maximise the value of our property and making the process so enjoyable! It looks so good, we wanted to stay! We will be asking Julia on board again when we move house. We couldn't be more pleased with her contribution!"
Chris & Kim, Islington

"We hired Julia to help us transform an empty rental into a cosy home before the arrival of our new baby. We were delighted with her approach every step of the way. She was always on hand sending us advice & links to great ideas she had. She is professional but also warm and engaging. She really took our project to heart sending us on ideas she had been thinking of, often at weekends & evenings. We always received prompt replies to any of our questions. Julia worked with us, helping to find out our style & sometimes pushed us to take risks which we were glad of in the end. We had a strict timeline & budget which Julia had no problems working with.. The end result is fantastic.. We would highly recommend Julia."
Clare & Simon, St Albans

"I hired Julia to help my with my home and as soon as we began discussing my requirements I felt like she understood what I was looking for. I was struggling to find a 'style' that worked through my home and needed help with light, colours and general advice to give my home a consistent style throughout, adding warmth using textures and accessories, and finding ways to use space in a practical way. Since Julia came over I feel a weight has been lifted, and now I know what to look for on my house shopping days out! Julia provided me with images, storage solutions etc and also gave me names on suppliers, shops and online retailers where I can purchase numerous things for the home. I was also working to a budget, and many of the retailers she gave were not going to break my bank! I highly recommend Julia, she is very personable, honest and talented."
Alison Leon, Hertfordshire
