Testimonials

“The service which you have provided for the planning for our bathroom has been first class and great value for money. We are delighted with the completed job and it’s largely due to your advice and sourcing of tiles, fittings, carpet and overall planning. We will certainly recommend your input to family and friends.”

“We had struggled to match our dining room with our expectations in our new house, so were delighted to find a fresh pair of eyes to look at it, and recommend what to do. Sallie’s natural enthusiasm is matched by her ability to visualise your wishes, and translate this into making the room into a reality. She is fun to deal with, but most importantly has great taste, which she uses to its fullest effect.
Amongst her many qualities are the ability to know what is value, and where costs can be reduced without compromising the outcome. The end result definitely has the “wow” factor we were looking for, and we will be using her services again.”

 “Sallie is more than an Interior Designer, she's a Transformationist!! She has created the most beautiful, light and open spaces within our (previously dark) traditional Victorian home. She has exceptional talent, flair and creativity. We initially asked Sallie to help us with our kitchen and were so impressed we have asked her to continue her work on the whole house. She is amazing, I cant recommend her enough. You can't afford not to use her.”

 "When I moved to a contemporary home I didn’t know where to start but knew that I could make some disjointed choices and potentially expensive mistakes in my furniture selection without help! She has a great eye for both detail and the overall effect when furnishing a room. She nurtures her clients and offers support (which I needed throughout the process) taking into account their wishes whilst advising them on the various options available.  Sallie can pick out high end and high street items which work together to create a fabulous result. Sallie was recommended to me by a friend and I am delighted to be able to do the same"

"Welwyn Garden City Housing Association takes great pride in its residential care home for older people - Elizabeth House. As part of a major upgrade to the care home we wanted to create an environment that reflected the changing aspirations of older people and introduce choice my offering residents, standard, premium and luxury rooms. Being a not for profit provider the issue of affordability was essential as was creating designs that reflected the needs of older people with a diagnosis of dementia. Interiors 58 were recommended and from the outset we have been delighted to work with Sallie - who was given a far from easy brief, coupled with demanding timescales. We were so delighted with the first phase of the upgrade programme we retained Sallie for a further two phases and will continue to work with her to see through the complete upgrade of the care home and capitalise on her expertise re a further scheme for local people with a learning disability. Her passion for her work is evident as is her USP that great design can be delivered at an affordable price."

The worked involved new furniture, curtains, carpets, blinds, decorating etc.  A first class service and my wife and I are delighted with the finished result.

We strongly recommend Interiors at 58."

“Mid way through purchasing expensive items of furniture for our lounge I suddenly began to panic and doubt my choices. After a quick Google search I contacted Sallie who, although very busy, managed to squeeze in an appointment with me to discuss our plans. Sallie listened to our requirements and then provided great advice that gave us the confidence to continue with our designs. Where she added real value was helping me make choices and also using her talents to help us source unusual items and thus pull all our ideas into a coherent design. Sallie provided sound advice and showed genuine enthusiasm for our small project. Money well spent and I will not hesitate to use her in the future”

“Being clueless about how to furnish/decorate my new place I was extremely fortunate to find Sallie. She has played a pivotal role in helping me achieve a fantastic look for my home and been an invaluable help in providing ideas and solutions, taking into consideration my preferences. The result is fabulous and Sallie has managed to source some amazing items and also has very good contacts with local trades. Sallie has also made it a very enjoyable experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Interior 58 services”

“I am a hairstylist/blogger from the states and recently moved to the UK in September of last year! I was lucky enough to google Sallie while sitting with my designer from the states in the Apple Store at Milton Keynes. Sallie immediately arranged her schedule to meet with us and we immediately clicked. I would send images and Sallie had a way of finding it and making it all come to life! I have now worked with Sallie on 2 projects: my home located in Aspley Guise and my salon located on Woburn high street. She has been amazing to work with! She is always right on point and one step ahead. I highly recommend her and would NEVER do a project without her”

Rachelle McMullen

“I hired Sallie to help with the Interior Design of our family room and formal living room space. I found Sallie to be a great Interior Designer and she was able to bring both rooms together beautifully.  She has very elegant taste and has an intricate eye for detail and colour.  She is meticulous, honest, knowledgeable and very easy to work with; and we were able to bring both our tastes together culminating in an excellent finish.  I would highly recommend her to my friends and colleagues.“

“Sallie was suggested by a friend who knew i needed help on the interior design of my new home. Upon meeting her it was obvious that she had some great ideas and was willing to get involved in all aspects of my home from cladding to the outside of the property to the supply of kitchens,bathrooms etc.

    Im very happy to recommend Sallie as i found her very easy to work with,extremely reliable,honest and i have no doubt she will give you the perfect finish to your project at a very reasonable price“

Steve Kavanagh

“After meeting Sallie for the first time she made us feel very comfortable. She helped bring to life two rooms we had no idea what to do with in our home. She was so easy to communicate with, friendly, reliable and efficient. Her prices were the most reasonable we found in the area and her work was spectacular. I could have never thought of doing what she did with the space myself. Hiring Sallie for the job was worth every penny. I normally dont leave testimonials but I really wanted to share this with everyone. I highly recommend Sallie, she has a great working ethic, professionalism, she is very fun to work with and she did an outstanding job modelling our home. We would definitely be calling back soon. Thank you so much Sallie we enjoyed every visit and send our best wishes“

“Having recently purchased my first home I was excited to put my stamp on it and turn it into something really special. I had various ideas for some of the rooms but as I have never decorated and furnished a home before I lacked the boldness or creativity to turn it into the home I knew it could be. I had never considered getting an interior designer at the beginning of the process but I am so glad that I did. Sallie has given me the confidence to try things I would never had considered but at the same time she’s kept true to look I had been wanting to achieve. At all times Sallie has been very easy to deal with putting me at ease with the whole design process,if there was something which I did not like she was quick to take note and come back with something I loved. Although clearly there is additional cost for using Sallies services I believe I have ended up spending less than I would have on my own as she’s encouraged me to mix in some cheaper items with the more expensive ones in order to accomplish the overall look. Sallie has also been able to source some really unique items for my home which I would never have found on my own. Not to mention I would not have created the amazing home I now have without her help“

Joe Pinder

“We recently used Sallie to help us nail down a couple of rooms within our house that we felt were lacking in inspiration. I had quite a strong opinion on one of areas we were looking at, but was open in all other aspects. Sallie completely took this on board and worked with me to come up with some great ideas that really suited my taste and the style of our house. She came up with some brands that we hadn’t considered and some ideas for future projects and I would certainly engage her expertise again”

Bee du Plessis

“Sallie brings enthusiasm, passion and an incredible depth of knowledge, and was a pleasure to work with. She has the rare gift of being able to develop the personal tastes of her clients, and suggested a range of approaches to suit every budget. Sally made us feel comfortable and in control and we are absolutely thrilled with our finished room“

Anna Rose Adams

“I was very impressed with the article in the Evening Standard newspaper about interiors@58 and as soon as we spoke, I instinctively knew that Sallie totally understood what I was trying to achieve and knew where to look. Sallie quickly supplied me with wonderful options for me to choose from and we both know the end result is going to look amazing! I am so grateful for all the effort you put in to my request. I have already recommended you to a number of friends and will continue to do so as you were such fun and so enthusiastic and I really hope we can work together again”

Pru Fudge

I was thoroughly impressed with the work that Sallie did with. She maintained a highly professional service and created a truly unique interior. She is obviously passionate about creating not only a tailored interior but also a bespoke process. This trait elevates the service and I have no hesitation in recommending her.
