what my clients say...

Room Service works in lots of different ways to help different people and will be unique to your room, personality and circumstance. My previous clients have widely varying needs and I've loved going on their design journey with them. This is the most exciting part of the interior design process and I can't wait to get started with lots of new rooms soon!

“I wanted to give my little boy a new bedroom for his 5th birthday, ready to start big school. I had a few ideas but no clue about where to start or how to bring ideas together in a scheme and what to do in what order. I also didn’t know how to cost things out to fit my budget. Donna helped me realise what my starting inspiration was, and how to develop the room around that so that I could prioritise. She’s guided me during the entire process and I not only now have a room that I (and my child) love, but also now know how to decorate a room myself! #enabled #empowered #thankyouDonna!”
— CLAIRE, Brockley
“Thanks for giving us the confidence to try something new!”
— CHLOE, Blackheath
“It was great to talk through ideas for our second bedroom which was going to serve as a new baby’s room, spare room and occasional office space! Donna worked with the existing décor (knowing how little time we’d have to actually implement ideas when baby arrived!) and knew how to make simple yet effective suggestions. She also provided a Pinterest board of some lovely ideas that I could use. She is friendly, approachable and imaginative and a lovely source of encouragement, inspiration and style!”
— NANCY, Corbett Estate
“I cannot recommend Donna highly enough! She has helped and guided me through the process of decorating my living room. My husband has no interest in interior design and I was finding it really hard to know where to start, despite being desperate to do so! Donna helped me crystallise my ideas and work out exactly what colour scheme and room style I wanted. She took into account my style, colours I liked and what specific style I was going for, alongside the practicalities of the room e.g needing toy storage! She then helped me work out where to start the whole process. Thank you Donna!”
— KATHERINE, Lee
“Thanks for your help in tying our design together. I know we were quite far along in our decision making (and it didn’t help that the room was half demolished!) but your input reassured us and gave us confidence. And the tip on changing the initial choice of tile was spot on!
— NANCY AND ED, Catford

— Nicola, Online Client
Your service has been invaluable to me. I’ve been singing your praises to everyone. An ENORMOUS thank you!

”It’s the 1st January 2019 and looking back, I have to say that Donna’s Room Service experience was one of my highlights in 2018. Our living room had always been a sticking point because it was so cold, disjointed, half-finished and ‘not very me.’ I needed Donna’s input pronto as we had decorators coming in and I couldn’t make my mind up on a colour for this room.

I was in heaven when Donna came round to discuss the room with me - I love talking about colour and design! Donna’s pre-meeting questions really helped to get my creative juices flowing and to feel confident about bringing together the things that make my heart sing.

Donna inspired me to introduce a new colour to my green/grey/blue palette, a colour that I have always dismissed – yellow. Not sunshine yellow but mustard, and I love it. It makes sense as yellow and blue make green and green is my favourite colour EVER.

We talked about what I love about the room and what I’d like to change and in that moment I could start to visualise a room I wanted to sit in for hours on end. Donna suggested moving a couple of pieces of furniture around, which transformed the room and by chance 2 weeks later, the decorators put an arm chair in the ‘wrong’ place which turned out to be the perfect place for it!

Needless to say, our living room is now my happy place and I thank Donna and her Room Service for inspiring me to make it happen!”
