Sally Bourne & her team are experienced Interior Designers and expert Colour Consultants, particularly with our stocked ranges featuring Farrow & Ball, Paint Library, Sanderson’s, William Morris, Designers Guild, The Little Greene paint Co. and others.
In a visit to your home or office, we discuss your likes and dislikes and see for ourselves your lighting conditions at first hand. We are then able to design schemes based on a combination of your personal preferences, together with the colours and finishes most appropriate to the features and furniture of your space.
We’ll prepare a Colour Report that will include a swatch of each colour, sample pots and the finish we recommend for each surface. We can also advise on all aspects of home decoration, including curtains & soft furnishings, storage, lighting, flooring, tiles and accessories.
The service costs are £150.00 per hour of which £30 per hour is refundable on paint purchase, this works out at about £50.00 per room and includes the Colour Report and all sample pots which retail between £3.50 - £4.99 each.

"We got much more than a Colour Consultation from Veronica, she was full of ideas about everything from furniture to fittings and even the layout of the bathroom, saving us from a few horrendous mistakes along the way. When she came to see us she was very good at drawing out what we wanted and making helpful suggestions, without imposing rigid designs or styles on us. We loved the fact that she was very enthusiastic and seemed genuinely excited about our project. Overall we are very pleased with the design and colour choices that Veronica helped us with and we look forward to using her on our next project!"David & Jurga McCluskey
"I just wanted to say how delighted i am with the service I recieved from Veronica Lancaster during the consultations I've had. She immediately 'connected' with our house and suggested fantastic ideas which transformed our house into a delightful living space. I was initially sceptical as I had a previous bad experience with a local interior designer who wanted to transform the house into a 'clone' hotel/loft space. Veronica saved me so much time and effort, not only with colour choices but with kitchen worktops/carpets/tiling, she has been one of the select few people during my building project who has been a real asset.
I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone undergoing a project, if i ever go through this process again she would be one of the first people i call!!"Nathalie, Highgate
"We used the design services of Sally and her colleagues during the renovation of our house.
Our initial thought was to paint the interior one colour but after a colour consultation we soon changed our minds. Sally was able to recommend a colour scheme that would enhance and compliment the style of the house. We were amazed to see how colour changes not only from room to room but from wall to wall. It was possible to change the mood/feel of a room just by adding a different shade. The staff in Sally's shop were very helpful in ordering all the chosen makes of paint and ensured they were ready and delivered on the days they were needed. The written report, provided as part of the colour consultation, proved invaluable to everyone, especially our decorators, coping with which colours should be used in each room.
On a recommendation from Sally we used Sian for all our curtains and blinds. A consumate professional, Sian assisted us with choosing and sourcing fabrics, custom-made curtain rods etc while taking all the measurements herself. Her team made all the curtains and blinds and worked evenings and weekends to ensure everything was ready and installed on time.
The upholsterers, Simon and Jason, had their work cut out renovating some impulse buys from auction and antique shops. The end result was furniture looking better than new in the fabrics of our choice. Their hand-made furntiure completed the look of the house.
When visitors come everyone sees and likes something different and that is due to all the people who helped create our home.
Thanks to all involved."Chris and Alberto, Crouch End
"We hadn't moved for years so felt we needed lots of support to restore our new house - a Victorian period property with a basically sound structure but awful presentation. We needed help to choose, wooden floors, new cornices, stained glass, tiling etc but it really needed a good eye for colour.
Sally entered the house and immediately knew what to do, not just with colour, but with everything else too. She saved us so much time, money and stress through her experience and taste.
Her decorator, Tania, plus team were charming and efficient with a real obsession for detail. Tania seemed to know everything there was to know about anything and was incredibly calm, supportive and trustworthy. We bought into a whole world of talented tradesmen and women of just about every skill possible. They were all well organised, pleasant to have around and filled us with confidence.
It was a great experience and makes us feel like moving house again! We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the whole package to anyone whether they needed their hand holding or not!"Marianne & Vernon, Muswell Hill
"I am useless with colours and our house was a hotch potch of messy yellows, scrappy violets and so on. Sally came and worked her magic with her flash cards of colour. We followed her advice and the house now looks like somewhere I always imagined living in but thought I never would. She has an astonishing talent for colour and a vast knowledge of paint and products. She also has a great contact list with suggestions for people who can do almost anything to a house. I can't speak highly enough of her."Melanie McFadyean, Stoke Newington
"Just a note to say how delighted I am with the colours you chose for the kitchen and sitting room here in Ingram Road. They look absolutely perfect and I’m thrilled with both rooms. I would never have achieved the look by myself – you have worked your magic once again! If you are passing do drop in and have a look until then yours, Charlotte".
Charlotte Bradshaw, East Finchley
"Being the sort of person who can see when something looks amazing but completely unable to put it together by myself, I asked Sally Bourne to come round and help me choose a neutral palette for my living room walls. Her amazing eye suggested not only paint colour but all kinds of small details to the existing organisation of the room, including things I would never have thought of. Working with what I already had she completely redesigned the space and provided a report with a list of all the people who could carry it out for me. It was the best money I’ve ever spent, worth every penny. I can’t recommend her highly enough. " Aug 2009Linda Grant
