Jo & Lewis G.
After an initial discussion about our objectives Leigh was able to generate some really
interesting design concepts. After adjusting them slightly Miscellanea then transformed our
bathroom plans into reality. From start to finish she listened attentively and worked with us to
achieve our desired outcome. We loved the approach and ideas and the attention to detail
was superb. The quality of the material that were used was second to none. Our very tired
master bathroom now looks like a spa and is such a relaxing place to be. We gave Leigh a
budget which was kept within. Miscellanea and Leigh were a joy to work with and we were so
pleased with the work we went from doing one bathroom to three plus a cloakroom. What
more can we say other than we highly recommend Leigh and Miscellanea .
We have had the pleasure of working with Leigh on numerous occasions. We came across Leigh and her work after visiting her shop: miscellania in Churt. We were bowled over by her imagination and sheer variety of interior design styles! It truly is an Aladdin's cave of delight! Leigh has a remarkable ability in that she knows exactly what works in any space! she just has to look at a room and like the artist that she is, the inspiration flows! Leigh transformed two very awkward bathrooms (nothing is straightforward in a 16th century house!) and managed to fit extra showers and a bath into spaces which most interior designers would have run away from! Not only that, but she magically somehow made the bathrooms look bigger!! She seamlessly married up the en-suite bathrooms to the bedrooms; the attention to detail was immaculate!! We've just been blown away by what she can do! Leigh is a delight to work with, professional, reliable, keeping us informed every step of the way! She has never let us down! We will continue to call on her expertise. We would not use anyone else!
We undertook a 3 year renovation of a large Arts and Crafts period house and Leigh and Miscellanea's assistance with the interiors was invaluable. She helped with with spatial layouts, furniture designs, wall colours, bathrooms, light fittings, fabric choices and furnishings! Everything came together beautifully and we are often complimented on what a beautiful and unique home we have. Leigh managed to ensure the rooms flow well and are robust and practical to meet the needs of a busy family with young children. Miscellanea worked seamlessly with our building contractors and their tradesmen. Miscellanea also supplied all the joinery in our house and several years later we are just as happy with it as when it was installed. It was a pleasure working with Leigh as she is so quick and responsive, has a fabulous eye for colour and detail and brings an individual and fresh aesthetic to each project. As | had a love of interiors and antiques myself, | really appreciated how we were able to work closely together to make the family home of my dreams.
We live in an apartment in an old country house in Hindhead. We love living here but the kitchen was dingy and badly needed an upgrade. We got a few firms in who designed predictable replacement kitchens. Luckily, we got Leigh Courtnage from Miscellanea to take a look and she came up with a wonderful design which would solve all our problems. Her ideas were innovative and original - and sympathetic to the period in which the house was built. Once we employed her, she organised everything - from sorting out the actual cabinetry to supplying the various workmen needed. She took all of the pain out of a very complicated process and our kitchen was finished on time and within budget. I would highly recommend Leigh to manage the design and build of anything and we will hopefully employ her again one day to do our bathrooms!
The moment I walked into Miscellanea and met Leigh, I deep down knew she was going to be the one helping me to design my dream kitchen. Leigh hand-drew the most perfect designs over and over again until we (and she!) were satisfied and ensured our ideas got materialized onto paper. During teh building work Leigh was the glue to keep everything together with her persistent strive for perfection for delivering the best service with a clear understanding and a sense of humor!! Thank you miscellanea. We still love our kitchen!!
Whilst writing | would just like to say that we can’t thank you and you team enough for the our new kitchen fitting ‘experience. We've had so many positive comments on the bespoke design and fitting. Can't rate your service high enough, and have already recommended you to numerous people. Thank so much again for everything.
