A Fantastic Experience
“We had a fantastic experience: Nichola really understood the brief, came up with excellent ideas, was super-responsive, helpful and extremely professional throughout the project, and a pleasure to work with. Everything was done to the highest standard, on time or before, and with full respect for the budget.”

A Very Happy Customer
“I found Penman Interiors through Houzz. Dealing with Nichola has been an absolute pleasure. The whole process from start to finish has been amazing. Nichola sat down with my husband and I, went through what we were thinking re our house and then came back with fabulous colour boards for each room we were doing up. We worked together changing and adding bits and pieces and the end result we adored.
Nichola was also aware in some instances my husband and I wanted cheaper options and sourced those options for us, in other cases Nichola even found cheaper alternatives than ones I suggested. Nichola also has a great team that fits, builds, paints, applies all the choices we made from carpets, paintings, curtains, wall paper etc so we did not have to source people.
I could not recommend Nichola/ Penman Interiors more highly. A very happy customer from Wandsworth.”

“Nichola produced designs to refurbish our entire house in south London. We appointed Nichola because we were embarking on a large build and refurbishment of our home and felt overwhelmed with the number of design decisions this would entail. Nichola came up with some beautiful designs for each room, and an overarching style and theme for the whole house. She came up with suggestions that were very much in tune with our tastes but we would not have thought of ourselves – exactly what we had hoped for. She also provided detailed plans and schedules of what we will need for each room. We haven’t yet completed the refurbishment but we are looking forward to using Nichola’s designs and hopefully getting the beautiful family hope we want. Nichola is very personable and easy to work with. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an interior designer.”

My Flat Is Transformed
“I appointed Nichola Snuggs, Penman Interiors, after a competitive pitch process as the interior designer and project manager for works at my flat in Chiswick. Nichola’s approach from the outset was creative, passionate and highly efficient. She was very thorough when we first met to discuss the project and produced a client brief that reflected our discussion accurately and provided a clear sense of her thoughtful consideration of how I would want to use the space by including lifestyle and preferences that were really reassuring.
She employed skilled and trustworthy professionals to undertake the works including carpentry, electricals, decoration and soft furnishings. She kept me updated at all stages of the process and sourced some beautiful items at a range of prices to suit the design brief and my budget. She has a keen eye for colour, shape and texture and all the different elements of the design including mirrors, kitchen tiles, lighting, furniture and ornaments have come together in perfect harmony.
Through Nichola my flat is transformed – it encapsulates all I wanted – a welcoming and attractive hallway, an open and stylish kitchen, reception and entertaining space, a peaceful and extremely comfortable bedroom and an overall look and feel that has not only increased my enjoyment of my property, but also its value!
In short, I would definitely recommend Nichola for interior design projects – she has real creative flair but she is also keen to reflect her clients’ wishes and she is an absolute pleasure to work with.”

“Alternative Bathrooms have worked with Penman Interiors on many of their projects. Nichola excels with her bathroom designs and she is always willing to take on board any helpful advise that is offered. She works closely with her clients and suppliers to produce stunning, amazing quality bathrooms that are within budget. She is inspirational, professional, courteous and always a pleasure to work with.”

“I recently worked with Penman interiors on a photoshoot in Chelsea. Nichola was a pleasure to work with, and really enjoyed the shoot. She had great energy, and her client seemed of the moon with the Design. Penman interiors have a great eye for detail, and i can’t wait till the next shoot. Highly recommended!”
Chris Snook | Relationship: Colleague
“We hired Nichola of Penman Interiors to help us refurbish a London apartment. As we live in the US, it was invaluable to have Nichola manage all aspects of the makeover, from the kitchen, bathrooms, floors and furnishings. Nichola provided oversight of the contractors, took us around to stores on our London visits and sent us samples when we were away to keep the project moving. As the project neared finish, Nichola helped us select finishing touches such as art and kitchenware. We highly recommend Nichola for conceptualizing and executing a residential design project.”

Attention To Detail
“We’ve used Penman Interiors twice in the last year for different jobs in our home with excellent results. Nicola is a great person to work with and has transformed our living space having designed our kitchen, lounge, loft bedroom and bathroom.
We’re not good at visualising how things will come together and were a little nervous from the outset but Nicola’s vision, creative drive, enthusiasm, attention to detail and her style reassured us throughout.
She certainly knows her stuff and was able to adapt designs to budget requirements without compromising standards. We would certainly work with Penman Interiors again.”

Stylish & Elegant
“I employed Nichola Snuggs of Penman Interiors to carry out a refurbishment of a two bedroom ground and lower ground floor flat in Belgravia, `London. This involved completely stripping out the old flat, reconfiguring the layout, specifying all new finishes including kitchen, new bathrooms, flooring, lighting, and procuring all new furniture. This was an investment project so it was important that a tight budget was adhered to on a short timescale. Nichola produced a stylish and elegant apartment. I am delighted with the end result.”

A Great Success
“We called Nichola from Penman Interiors to help give us some much needed inspiration to our latest rental property development. In this market it is a challenge to stand out from the ever burgeoning competition, and we wanted to achieve a cost effective, yet timeless product, that would help secure us really good quality tenants and rental yield, year after year.
Nichola had great vision and lots of fresh, exciting ideas, giving us a number of schemes to choose from. Once we had made our choice, she really took the stress away from us.
We were kept informed at every stage about what to expect and when to expect it and we were extremely happy to see the project completed on schedule. A significant failure from a supplier could have caused a major issue, but it was dealt with swiftly and calmly by Nichola. She also proved to be well connected with professional contractors, all of whom were knowledgeable, reliable and even tidy!
Our experience with Penman Interiors has been a great success. We would certainly be happy to work with Nichola again and recommend her to other potential clients.”

“We asked Nichola to help us when we refurbished our home last year. Nichola worked with our builder to fulfil our design dreams for our house internally. We were very pleased with her proactive approach and practical creativity in designing bathrooms, our new kitchen, storage and various internal architecture. We would not hesitate to recommend her to any future client.”

On Budget, On Time
“I used Penman Interiors to refurbish two bathrooms in my home and was absolutely thrilled with the result. Both projects came in on budget and on time!
The work was carried out professionally and to a very high standard. I am about to refurbish my kitchen and sitting room and will definitely be using them again. Highly recommend them!”

The Whole Process A Pleasure
“Our Favourite Things provided curtains,, blinds, tracking, poles, cushions, headboards and bed valances. The brief from Penman Interiors /Nichola Snuggs was very clear indeed and the details were precise. Communication was excellent and the company is an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only do Penman Interiors carry out an outstandingly stunning and efficient job for their client, they clearly empower their suppliers to do the very best job down the line. Penman interiors provide access to properties when needed without fuss, they supported our work in every way and I do feel very privileged to have been part of the Eaton Square project. I feel like my work for them was a huge success. The whole process was a pleasure. Plus I am totally in awe of their extraordinarily fabulous design skills! Cannot wait for the next project with Penman Interiors.”
