‘Robertson Lindsay creates stunning bespoke interiors for private clients. They only run three or four projects simultaneously so they can devote time to each one. “We ask abut your needs, we listen to your likes and dislikes and we endeavour to create a home that is perfectly suited to you. We pride ourselves on providing an impeccable standard of service to our clients’.
It was the designers ability to combine elements of their contrasting styles that impressed them most. “Andy likes vintage and industrial and I’m much more clean lines and contemporary”. It was about co-creating something that we wouldn’t have got to individually”. It’s what you pay a designer for – to remove all the angst you might have about whether you’ve made the right decision. They know what they are doing’.
‘Sally was a great help with materials’ says Jane. ‘It really is a minefield out there once you start looking and I think she really met the brief. It’s hard to choose a favourite space now as it all works and flows so well.’
‘Robertson Lindsay gets most work through word of mouth, or returning to do second and third projects for former clients. “Scotland is quite small, so your reputation is everything.We tend to take on the whole property, whether that is a townhouse in London, a manor house in France or a castle in Scotland.” They are larger projects at the upper end of both space and budget. “Our suppliers tend to be small businesses that are really skillful and we can learn from them. Design is all about detail, and the difference between a good project and a great project is taking the time to get that detail right – whether that’s a wallcovering or the fretwork on a custom-built wardrobe. We take a lot of direction from the client, getting to know them and their tastes, looking at the house, the architecture and then influences from travel or nature all come together to get to the essence of the design. We have worked with some very famous people –but I’m sworn to secrecy and although we work with high-net-worth individuals, all our clients want value for money and everyone will have a budget. At the end, we want them to walk into their house and know it is theirs, rather than an interior design showroom’.
‘I love the result and it’s difficult to say which room I like best because I like them all best for different reasons’.
