I enlisted Jane's help and advice to redecorate my hall and dining room.  I wanted to update these rooms to create a contemporary, smart and modern look.  Jane quickly understood my objectives and her perception of the type of furniture and style I liked meant that she was able to present me with a comprehensive plan for furniture, paint colours, fabric and lighting.  I am delighted with the end result and am now eager to start thinking about the next project in my home with her.

Jane has a brilliant eye for colour. She also has a talent for picking up on just what the client wants and producing the look effortlessly. Her attention to detail is great and her advice is always worth listening to. She managed to give my home a contemporary 'wow' factor without me having to get rid of all the much loved 'things' there already. The finished rooms continue to attract lots of great comments. Jane has an innate sense of style which comes through in her designs. I would recommend her to anyone.

Jane has transformed our dated and badly laid out bedroom into a beautiful space which showcases the period features in the room whilst providing modern comfort. Demonstrating her enormous patience, Jane spent hours with us working to select fabrics, wallpaper, accessories and pieces of furniture so that the agreed scheme was unique, beautiful and reflected our preferences and lifestyle. She also sourced suppliers and recommended excellent craftsmen so that every aspect of the room was perfect. We have two young children and Jane has created a luxurious bedroom for us that provides a real sanctuary from the rest of our family house! We were so pleased with the final result that we have asked her to come back and redesign our sitting room.

We initially contacted Jane, who was recommended by a friend, to redesign our dining room. We were so impressed and delighted with the end result that we have gone on to redesign nearly every room in the house using Jane's expertise. Jane has always come up with individual, innovative ideas, whilst incorporating our personal specifications and tastes on each project. The end results are stylishly elegant, beautiful rooms that still retain a 'homely' feel. I would wholeheartedly recommend Jane and will definitely enlist her services in the future.

I instructed Jane Bates Interior Design to completely redo a tired house that I bought in London. Jane took charge of everything from presenting design schemes, furniture and fabrics to project-managing the different trades and presented me with a turnkey, finished, and stunningly beautiful home. I couldn't be happier.

Jane is a first class interior designer and has great skill in translating a client's ideas into colours and textures, excelling in 'outside the box' themes that a client may not have thought of. She sources materials and furnishings to suit a wide range of budgets and styles. She never fails to please! To date, Jane has inspired us to complete five rooms of very different styles but all answering our requirements of personal taste, ambiance and practical functionality.

Jane has given me invaluable advice and support with a number of interior design projects over the last 15 years. These have included an 8-bedroom house in Surrey and my recent purchase of a 3-bedroom house on the Surrey/West Sussex border. This house has now been extended to 5 bedrooms and throughout the whole process Jane has provided advice on everything from moving walls to buying furniture, from carpets to light fittings as well as colour schemes and soft furnishings. Jane always takes into account the budget, timing and family living when providing advice and suggestions to ensure a harmonious outcome. I would have no hesitation in using Jane for future projects or recommending her to family or friends.

Thank goodness you were recommended to me. Before you appeared on the scene I had spent far too long looking for furnishings and fabrics with very little to show for my efforts. Then you arrived and, with only the shortest of briefings, you quickly tuned into my requirements. I think it was only a matter of a few days later that you presented a mercifully focused set of options from which I could make my selections. Your designs and your feeling for colour and texture were spot-on and the final workmanship in the end product was quite superb. You took away so much of the frustration and stress of dealing with multiple suppliers and have left me with a flat that looks and feels something very special indeed. Thank you.

Jane has worked with me on various projects over the past 10 years. These projects have included modernising a 2 bedroom flat in Westminster and providing interior design advice for our house in Surrey. She has produced colour schemes, and furniture & fittings for bedrooms, the hall, sitting room, kitchen and TV room. I have been delighted with each project. She provides pragmatic and sensible advice; always listens carefully to client preferences and each time manages to produce a scheme that is modern and refreshing but reflects what you want. She also always considers the time frame and client budget and manages each time to complete the project within the agreed budget. She has always been extraordinarily diligent, hard working, and will go out of her way to source what you need. I have received a number of compliments on our home and I always recommend Jane, as it is really a reflection of her talent.

Jane was asked by us to redesign our sitting room, dining room and bedroom which meant incorporating old family pieces together with a fresh new modern look. We were absolutely delighted with her approach in sourcing materials and furniture giving us plenty of choice and time to consider the best combinations - nothing was too much. Her eye for detail and care we believe it speaks for itself. Fantastic! Use her: we will again.

It must be 8 years since you worked with us to transform our house in Outwood and I just wanted to say how delighted I still am with all the designs you did, in particular our Living Room. With all the entertaining we do, people who've not been here before are still commenting on what a lovely, cosy room it is despite it being rather large with 4 sofas! Last night we had a couple of friends over and having sat around the fire then moved and ate, rather like in a boutique hotel, at the low coffee table in the 'stitch and bitch corner'! A room of great adaptability that remains looking contemporary and yet as if it's evolved over the years. You did a great job.
