Staircase design

What our Clients Say

Finished interior design
"Sean Symington is an absolute gem. We bought a Georgian Villa that needed updating internally and I had a picture in my head of how I wanted it to look. From the first zoom meeting with Sean it was clear that he was able to listen to my ideas and then come up with ideas to compliment and improve on mine! Working with Sean is delightfully easy; he has the gift of not being pushy and is super responsive. We worked together on planning every room before Sean put together the design concept, once agreed, we started work. We signed Sean to do the design and manage the project alongside the team of builders and decorators already in place and he worked brilliantly with all of them. Despite the usual setbacks during a project Sean kept to deadlines and budgets and agreed everything with us as it progressed. We moved into the finished house in December and I couldn’t be happier, it looks and feels exactly as I imagined - but better!."
