Don’t just take my word for it; why not read what a few of my lovely clients have to say…

As my family and I have moved twice in the past three years, I have been fortunate enough to work with Jane on two large, very different, design projects and after our first experience I was not going to commence our second project without her essential input.  Jane offers her clients the perfect combination of a listening ear to bring to life garbled ideas and immense creativity to all the touches that you wouldn’t even consider.  On both our projects Jane created an overall look and feel that ran throughout our property. The initial project was to create a modern dramatic twist in a large, Victorian home working with the original features and bringing back to life a property that then featured in local magazine publications.

From layouts, colours, textures to lighting, Jane has had input into the look of every room in our houses, including kitchens and bathrooms, working with high quality suppliers at all times.  Jane will take you on a journey and turn what you hope to achieve into a reality that you can enjoy every day. I would not hesitate to recommend Jane to anybody looking for a true professional with bags of both originality and talent who will take on the smallest to the largest room on any size project.”

Jane has worked with me on various projects over the past 10 years. These projects have included modernising a 2 bedroom flat in Westminster and providing interior design advice for our house in Surrey. She has produced colour schemes, and furniture & fittings for bedrooms, the hall, sitting room, kitchen and TV room. I have been delighted with each project. She provides pragmatic and sensible advice; always listens carefully to client preferences and each time manages to produce a scheme that is modern and refreshing but reflects what you want. She also always considers the time frame and client budget and manages each time to complete the project within the agreed budget. She has always been extraordinarily diligent, hard working, and will go out of her way to source what you need. I have received a number of compliments on our home and I always recommend Jane, as it is really a reflection of her talent.

It must be 8 years since you worked with us to transform our large Victorian country house and I just wanted to say how delighted I still am with all the designs you did, in particular our Living Room. With all the entertaining we do, people who’ve not been here before are still commenting on what a lovely, cosy room it is despite it being rather large with 4 sofas! Last night we had a couple of friends over and having sat around the fire then moved and ate, rather like in a boutique hotel, at the low coffee table in the ‘stitch and bitch corner’! A room of great adaptability that remains looking contemporary and yet as if it’s evolved over the years. You did a great job.

We recently purchased a three bedroomed apartment in a listed building in Clifton, Bristol. It needed complete renovation and as we were not local the project was daunting. Finding Jane Bates was a breath of fresh air.

Jane is a true professional in her field and has some excellent contacts in the local Bristol area which helped us on so many levels. She guided us through the project with passion and enthusiasm always being conscious of the budget we had in mind. Using her enviable skills Jane worked closely with us matching some of our ideas with her clearly better professional ones! We could not have created this special home without her. This was time, energy and money well spent.

We look forward to working with Jane again.

We initially contacted Jane, who was recommended by a friend, to redesign our dining room. We were so impressed and delighted with the end result that we have gone on to redesign nearly every room in the house using Jane’s expertise. Jane has always come up with individual, innovative ideas, whilst incorporating our personal specifications and tastes on each project. The end results are stylishly elegant, beautiful rooms that still retain a ‘homely’ feel. I would wholeheartedly recommend Jane and will definitely enlist her services in the future.

I enlisted Jane’s help and advice to redecorate my Living Room and adjoining orangery – I wanted to update these rooms to create a contemporary, smart and modern look. Jane quickly understood my objectives and her perception of the type of furniture and style I liked meant that she was able to present me with a comprehensive plan for furniture, paint colours, fabric and lighting. I was delighted with the end result and have since transformed two further rooms with her help.

I instructed Jane Bates Design to completely redo a tired house that I bought in London. Jane took charge of everything from presenting design schemes, furniture and fabrics to project-managing the different trades and presented me with a turnkey, finished, and stunningly beautiful home. I couldn’t be happier.

Jane has transformed our dated and badly laid out bedroom into a beautiful space which showcases the period features in the room whilst providing modern comfort. Demonstrating her enormous patience, Jane spent hours with us working to select fabrics, wallpaper, accessories and pieces of furniture so that the agreed scheme was unique, beautiful and reflected our preferences and lifestyle. She also sourced suppliers and recommended excellent craftsmen so that every aspect of the room was perfect. We have two young children and Jane has created a luxurious bedroom for us that provides a real sanctuary from the rest of our family house! We were so pleased with the final result that we have asked her to come back and redesign our sitting room.
