“Penny and her team did an absolutely wonderful job on our apartment! We were out of the country and after an initial consultation Penny created an apartment that we can walk into and feel special. The furniture, the colour scheme, the little ornamental extras, the artwork and the set up is just wonderful. She managed everything for us from finding and even commissioning furniture to arranging deliveries and organizing workmen. It is easy to see the amount of time and care she put into our property and we cannot thank her enough.”

“Employing the skills of Pad Deco has been one of the best investments I have made. Over the year that Pad Deco worked with me, they turned my house into a home that my family and I love. Penny and her team took time to get to know me and my family to ascertain our needs and preferred style. They worked to our budget finding colours, furniture and styles to suite our taste whilst allowing us to explore new ideas.  Penny was always highly professional and organised. Her great sense of humour made her very easy to work with -By transforming our house, Pad Deco transformed our lives and I am forever grateful.”

We were overseas when we decided to renovate and modernise our family home ahead of our move back to the UK. We had a good idea of what we wanted to do but needed some expertise to help us turn our ideas into reality. We approached the design team who immediately came up with many creative ways to approach our project. At every step we were given intelligent and interesting options from which we decided together with the team the best route to take. The whole process was clear, seamless and enjoyable from start to finish – and this all when most of what was decided upon was when we were still living 6,000 miles away. We were absolutely delighted with the end result and are loving our new life back in the UK in our beautifully modernised and furnished home.
