Timber Framed Buildings and Barn Conversions

Design Inspiration

Timber framed buildings and barn conversions have a wealth of possibilities as there are often so many architectural features that can be enhanced by highlighting. Often they are simply illuminated by wrought iron chandeliers and wall lights but there are so many possiblilites to do so much more than just illuminate the spaces and make these beautiful buildings come alive.

What do people say about us
 "Sam consistently delivers above and beyond what is asked of her, demonstrating excellent attention to detail and making suggestions and recommendations that help to shape the projects that we collaborate on. I ask Sam to work on all of my Interior Design projects, as she is able to work to both small and larger budgets, whilst making each client feel that their project alone is the focus of her efforts.
Her professionalism and integrity are superior and I always take great pride in introducing her as a highly valued member of my team. Whether making recommendations to us about lighting pieces of furniture or adding ambiance and style to a room scheme, we can always rely on Sam to contribute with enthusiasm, sharing her extensive knowledge and putting in the extra effort to make the work special. We trust Sam and would happily recommend her services to anyone wanting an opinion on lighting for their home, garden or business."

Sherry Wales
Partner and Interior Designer
I would just like to say what a wonderful service you have given to my wife, Bina, and I. Your patient approach and intelligent ideas in designing and providing the lighting for our kitchen and beauty room has been outstanding. You came up with ideas and solutions that we hadn’t thought of before and once we thought about what you envisaged for us on how the rooms would look, we thought that your ideas were original and practical. What more can someone want? In fact, it has become the subject of most of my conversations with everyone who comes to see the refurbishments made to our property. I’m sure that you will be even more successful in your business as you and your services are highly personal as well as professional.
