“I moved into a brand new apartment in Mount Wise, Plymouth in late summer 2018.
The apartment is a substantial two bedroom apartment with a master bedroom en-suite, a further bathroom, a small utility room with a washer/dryer and a large living area. The en-suite, bathroom and kitchen were complete (by developer).
I had an outline idea of what I wanted but I knew I needed assistance from a professional interior designer. I engaged Lynne from Cornish Interiors.
At all stages of developing the design for each room Lynne listened to what I perceived to be the solution. Lynne put my vague ideas into detailed plans with recommendations on the furniture, lighting & accessories required and where to purchase the various items.
The final result is outstanding and all my visitors have expressed their surprise at the high quality of the final result.
I could not have achieved the result without Lynne!”

I met Vicki a few years ago to try and get some help with ideas to start updating our family home. With 4 children having recently left home, there was a lot to do!
Since those early days, Vicki has helped me with great ideas for every room in the house, and each one has now had a modern makeover which is in keeping with the age of our house and our personal choices.
The initial consultation is followed up quickly with ideas on a mood board, samples and swatches, and as much advice and help as you need. Her time is a great investment, it takes away all the worry of making a mistake with colour, fabric or furnishings; and the time it takes too!
I am convinced that in the long run the consultation saves you time and money as well as many sleepless nights!
Vicki is a delight to deal with.
“We used Cornish Interiors for inspiration and ideas for our proposed extension we had planned.
From start to finish, Vicki was very professional and knowledgeable in all aspects of styling and design. She was very conscientious of what our needs were and her attention to detail was second to none.
All aspects of interior design was considered from paint colours, lamp styles, flooring styles and textures, soft furnishings, the list goes on! Nothing was ever too much for Vicki to look in to or arrange, even arranging kitchen door samples and flooring samples to match colours even more accurately!
Communication was excellent and key, especially during COVID-19 lockdown and social distancing regulations where a face to face meeting was not possible.
Mood boards were provided giving a great inspiration and an insight of how the space would look.
We cannot thank Vicki and Cornish Interiors enough with them providing us with reassurances and ideas that were current and also maintained the look and feel of what we wanted.
I would definitely be using them again when we get started on our next room!”

The Design and Inspire service from Cornish Interiors has been the perfect vehicle for me in order to come up with new design ideas for lounges and bedrooms within the hotel. It has proved a valuable starting point and if required further help can be given to implement any initial advice.
All the staff from Cornish Interiors have been friendly, efficient and provided some great workable designs. The team have helped me with several projects to date and I hope to continue to use the service in the future.

“Cathryn and Jill not only came up with some great design ideas for our house but took care of all the measurements and ordering. They worked well together with the architect and builders and took a big load off our shoulders. They also passed on to us some great savings from their suppliers. Altogether it was a pleasure working with them and we are delighted with the results.”
Mr & Mrs Lewis, Cornwall
“Cathryn was invaluable in helping us develop the look of our new offices, clarifying things and coming up with much better alternatives to our rather scatty Ideas! We are very pleased with the result!”
Nikki Marker – Hansford Bell
“Cathryn has been an absolute joy to work with on our new development at Martha’s Orchard. She is a highly efficient professional with excellent communication skills and a sunny personality. Working with her on what could easily have been a stressful project, has been great fun and we would happily use Cornish Interiors again. Everyone without exception, who has seen our new development, has been lavish in their praise. Nothing is too much trouble for Cathryn and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for Interior Design services.”
Margaret Langmaid, Martha’s Orchard, Constantine Bay
“We’ve called on Cathryn’s expert eye on three occasions and she’s been a star every time. Cathryn has saved many hours of matrimonial bickering through her ability to pick up on our preferences and then provide imaginative and tasteful design schemes to suit our tastes and lifestyle. What more could you ask of your interior designer? Oh yeah – she’s fun to deal with and reasonably priced too!”
Mike Boyne – Coswarth House
“Cathryn delivered on every level of the brief. Somehow she has managed to give us 20% more covers whilst actually making it feel like there is more space not less. We have much greater flexibility in how we can use the space, with a configuration of tables now that enables us to serve many more people.
The design fits the original brief perfectly; Cathryn was brave with her ideas and colours without being too controversial. The feedback we are getting from our visitors has been fantastic. We are all absolutely delighted with the outcome.
Cathryn is very organised, and a great communicator. She creates an environment where you can feel comfortable to challenge any of her proposals and she is always very flexible in accommodating any changes to the brief as things develop. Cathryn embedded herself seamlessly into my team here, and is the sort of consultant that simply rolled up her sleeves and got stuck in. She’s lively and fun and I have would have no hesitation whatsoever in either using her again or recommending her.”
Jez McDermott – Property Manager, Buckland Abbey Garden & Estate
“I had not worked with Cathryn before but she was a joy; everything was done on time, on budget and to the brief. Cathryn worked harder than I asked and poured her heart and soul into the finished product that is now Portland House holiday Villa. Cathryn far exceeded my expectations.”
Helen Mann – Property Manager, National Trust West Dorset
“Right from the start Vicki made things very easy. We own a period house in much need of TLC that has been in the family for generations with all the pressure that that brings with it. Interior decorating is not something either of us feel we are good at – thoughts of doing anything and getting it wrong were intimidating, not knowing where to start or which direction to go in meant that actually that we did nothing. The only thing we were sure of was that we wanted whatever we did to be sympathetic to the age of the house. I went to Cornish Interiors not really sure if it was the right thing to do and met Vicki. She was fantastic, so friendly and I felt comfortable chatting through the situation. She travelled out to see us, walked through the two rooms we were concentrating on taking some measurements and discussing some ideas.
The appointment was not onerous and time flew past. I was so delighted when the e-mail came through with the design boards, followed in the post by samples of paint and wall paper. The designs were very ‘us’ and she was spot on with regard to all the suggestions she made for colours and room layout. Vicki had given us different options for each piece of furniture or light fitting so we could decide which way to spend the budget for the rooms. We can’t wait to start the work and have the finished article to make the house we live in feel more like OUR home – just fantastic.”
Mr & Mrs L. Plymouth
“I have used Vicki at Cornish Interiors on a couple of projects and I cannot recommend her enough. Vicki helped me create a beautiful restaurant bringing in fresh ideas that I would never have thought of. By using Cornish Interiors Vicki saved me so much time and money and the finished product was amazing. I will definitely be using them again!”
