“We are really enjoying working with Hurst & Gillanders as they transform our house room by room. Great ideas, attention to detail and vision. Really recommend!”

“What a pleasure to deal with. Delighted with the results. You turned a tired home into something beautiful. You listened and always gave options (and were cost conscious). We are thrilled with the results and would highly recommend you.”

“We would highly recommend Hurst and Gillanders. We started with a blank canvas and wouldn’t have been able to put anything together if it wasn’t for their vision and knowledge. Emma totally pinpointed what we needed and was able to provide us with wonderful hand drawn, to-scale layouts so we could envisage the rooms before committing to the furniture, colours and styles. I would also say that although we were working remotely, we found them very flexible and patient with our demands while being able to present us with lots of options. Thank you Hurst and Gillanders – we are so happy!”

“We had used Emma and Tamsin previously on a kitchen project, so had no hesitation using them again. We were undertaking a project covering 3 bedrooms (adult and 2 girls’ room), hall and 2 bathrooms. They were superb in working with us to develop plans for each room, and providing great recommendations for paint colours, fabrics, furniture etc. Not only that, they co-ordinated all the quotes, found us a great builder/project manager and gave us the confidence that the end result would be exactly what we wanted. We are extremely happy with the work they have done, the solutions they have come up with and all their recommendations. They have been very conscious about our budget and delivered every recommendation to sit within it. They have a real skill in being able to see the potential in any space, and coming up with options that others (including us) just wouldn’t think of. All in all, Tamsin and Emma have reduced the stress (and time) associated with a project like this and we will be using them again on our next project. We would fully recommend them.”

I worked with Tamsin to completely redesign my through-lounge, hallway, stairs, and a loft en suite. I needed a “flow” through the house to link the spaces together, and I needed inspiration, as my new home clearly hadn’t been redecorated in a long time and I was finding it hard to see past the brown carpets and cream walls. Tamsin brought a fabulous tonal colour scheme and some really helpful mood boards that inspired me in finding new lights, furniture etc. She found the perfect tiles for the en suite and helped me source all the fittings – the small space now looks transformed. As for the stairs and hall, the wall colours are now complemented by a beautiful wool runner that she sourced, and based on the mood boards I decided on an oak herringbone wood floor in the hallway and living room. Tamsin was extremely responsive to all my questions throughout, guiding when I needed it and finding suppliers and products. I’m so glad I chose Hurst & Gillanders – for a very reasonable price they helped me achieve everything I was hoping for in my refurbishment. I’m so happy with the result and would unhesitatingly recommend this company!

“After three years of living in our new build house, the open plan kitchen/diner/living room space still felt stark and cold and I had no idea how to go about fixing it. I knew I needed help and spoke to a couple of local firms but after chatting through what I wanted to achieve with Tamsin, she really understood the feel I was looking for. After exchanging emails, Tamsin sent me a room layout proposal that I implemented the same day which transformed the room. We then spent some time discussing colours, fixtures and fittings and Tamsin came to the house to get a sense of our taste and measure the space. We are absolutely delighted with the end result, I would never have been able to achieve the same look and feel alone and Tamsin gave me confidence to go with some bolder choices. We are looking forward to working with Hurst + Gillanders when we’re ready to tackle the other difficult room in our house!”

“Tamsin and Emma were amazing! We had an ambitious project converting Victorian flats to modern, four storey family home with rear and side extension. They were open to exploring all of the possibilities for the space so that we couldmake sure that we had the best possible design for us as a family. They were creative and extremely responsive to any suggestions that we had. After the initial involvement of the architects to take the project through planning, Hurst + Gillanders began the redesign of the interior. They reconfigured the space so that the main kitchen living area, now on the lower ground floor, became connected to the rest of the house via a double height void and new stairs.
We are thrilled with the bespoke joinery, furniture choices and the lovely colour scheme. Hiring Hurst +Gillanders was one of the best decisions we made and we are delighted with the fabulous outcome. They were always really accommodating and delivered on time and in budget. We have been blown away by the results and love our new home.”
