Five star review for Avocado Sweets

Five star review for Avocado Sweets

Happy clients make for happy designers. This five star review from Ruth, one of our home design clients, has put a big smile on our faces. Ruth brought us in to revitalise her Stoke Newington apartment and create a home to enjoy. We helped her to make the most of the space, adding character and warmth throughout. Intelligent storage solutions helped to keep the home clear and calm. Here's what she had to say about the process: "We wanted to redecorate our apartment in Stoke Newington, adding colour, print and a retro feel. We also had a serious clutter problem and really needed optimisation of storage solutions to make the most of the apartment.
