Client Testimonials

You guys have been truly OUTSTANDING. You’ve held our hands, nudged, pushed, delivered and created real magic. All with smiles and a great deal of patience. We are totally in love with our home… and you as well actually!
Nic Conway & Andy Devlin, Client - Edinburgh

Sally was hugely supportive and available throughout. Her knowledge, contacts and expertise were invaluable and she pointed me in the right direction with many diverse design decisions. Everything has turned out beautifully. Thank you Sally.
Mrs Christie, Client - Fife, Scotland

It might be wonderful if you can browse around in the Chelsea Design Centre or spend days collecting samples of fabrics and wallpapers but for most of us, there is just not enough time. Choosing fabrics, paper and paint online is hopeless as the colours are not real enough and there is nothing to touch and feel. But when you have got Sally’s team to hand, all these problems are solved. She has the fabric, paper and paint samples plus loads of wonderful ideas, and it is like a one-stop shop because she can order everything too.
Barbara Pickard, Client - St Andrews

I was delighted with the service and would happily recommend you. If I hadn’t had any advice I probably wouldn’t have even started the project yet!
Ali MacLennan, Client - Fulham London

I enjoyed (and benefited tremendously) from a very personal service. Very responsive at all times. Constant follow up and suggestions, when hitting difficult areas. Very practical – in terms of not limiting the work to the design element. Invaluable in terms of running the project to completely renovate and restore my listed flat. I had no hesitation on instructing the firm to work on a second project.
Owner, Client - Overseas

Working with Robertson Lindsay was a delight. Sally offered direct access to a wide range of commercial products that would have been very difficult to source privately. Without her, the project would have been completed more slowly, less satisfactorily and with a great deal more stress and expense. The atmosphere of calm and relaxation, which we were aiming for, is the single most striking achievement of Robertson Lindsay, commented upon by everybody who has viewed the premises. Robertson Lindsay took the hassle out of our hands and produced a great end result.
Dr Mel Thomson, Client - Fife

Sally Homan from Robertson Lindsay Interiors has been advising me on my flat in Highgate, London. The service is impeccable and combines the ability to design elegant, stylish spaces with incredible efficiency. I couldn’t recommend Robertson Lindsay more highly – professional, friendly, efficient and reliable – I would use them again in an instant. They have also helped my parents with their home in the Lake District turning a very tricky bedroom into a beautiful elegant space.
Miss Burchett, Client - London

When my husband and I were looking for a property to purchase in the summer of 2018, we viewed a really beautiful property in Leith and a property with potential in Edinburgh’s New Town. We opted for the New Town property and my husband said that if he could have the interior of the Leith property in the New Town property it would be perfect. We are Dubai based so not an easy task to do ourselves, fast forward a few months after we took ownership and we decided to look for an interior decorator for our new home. Per chance we stumbled across Robertson Lindsay’s website that had photographs of the Leith apartment that we really liked. They had been the designers –  Serendipity. I immediately sent Sally an email and the rest was history, we have a beautifully decorated family home.  
 
Decorating can be difficult because its subjective and getting many people to agree on a single creative direction can be difficult but here is a sum up of my experience. Sally and team managed to get our home completed on time and in within budget, something fairly unheard of in the home décor industry. She managed this through WhatsApp and email and where required a good few phone calls. Our brief was the following, we wanted to be able to walk into our home in the summer of 2019 and call it home, we also have a young family and needed the improvements to accommodate them. We wanted the interior to be light and airy, we bought a basement apartment, so really important for us. We sent photographs of things we liked, so Sally could get a sense of what we liked. We received a very detailed responses to our brief, very structured and easy enough to respond too. Being a remote project, I have to say that this approach from the beginning was really appreciated. The end product is amazing, we spent the summer of 2019 in a place that felt very much like home.
 
What truly amazed me is that Sally and team took incredible responsibility for everything that needed to be done, I never had to follow up or chase Sally, in many instances it was the other way round. The level of service, care and attention to detail was highly valued and can be easily underestimated in terms of their importance. What an incredible project – Thank you Sally and team    
 
I would highly recommend the Robertson Lindsay team – they are a fun, creative, structured and trustworthy team
Clare Olverman, Client - Dubai

I used Robertson Lindsay last year to do my sitting room although initially I was not convinced that I needed a designer. The end result was a very beautiful, elegant room, which I loved so much that this year I used Sally’s services for the rest of the house (ex kitchen which does not need work yet).

I had the choice of whether only to use Sally’s design flair or for her to manage the project also. I asked her to manage the whole project as I could not have co-ordinated all the tradesmen. It made the whole thing so easy as any problems, scheduling or other, were not mine. I received estimates for costs before we started and the actual costs were pretty close plus I was given a regular breakdown once the project was underway so I always knew where I was financially. Another consideration is the fact that I neither have the patience to look for fabrics, lamps etc nor any idea of where to look. It isn’t easy having one’s house re-vamped but Robertson Lindsay took so much of the stress out of it for me and I now have a very beautiful house, which I could not have achieved by myself.

Pamela McGowan, Client - East Lothian

Robertson Lindsay were very good at interpreting my style and making design suggestions based on that. Lots of friends have commented in particular on the overall look and how the design flows throughout and that the design is very ‘me’! As someone with no knowledge of interior design, Robertson Lindsay introduced me to a world of suppliers that I had no idea existed and from whom I would never ordinarily have made purchases. It was great to have so much advice and hand-holding in relation to such important spending decisions and to have somebody to pull together the various threads of the project. Robertson Lindsay provides a very professional service from start to finish.
Jill Stevenson, Client - Edinburgh

Our house on the South Coast of England recently underwent significant renovation to create a light, spacious, flexible and modernised living space. The interior décor and style, however, was stuck in the 1980’s, and although we had some ideas for changing it, we didn’t have an overall vision of what it might look like. That’s where Robertson-Lindsay came in. They transformed a rather bland interior with magnolia painted walls into a stylish and warm space with colour, contemporary wallpaper, striking fabrics and bespoke furniture that we would never have found even after many months of research. And we love it all!

Each room has its own style, but all fit together by clever use of colour and design. Robertson-Lindsay presented choices and design schemes that made us think about what we really wanted and would fit our home and lifestyle, rather than go with our pre-conceived ideas about what we (thought) we wanted. We liked Robertson-Lindsay’s creative ideas so much that our initial brief, which was mainly about décor and some fabrics, expanded to include lighting layouts, blinds, lamp shades, carpets, bed linen, bespoke furniture and decoration specification. Sally and her team were very engaged throughout the project and without their help the whole project would have been very daunting.

Living 500 miles from Edinburgh was never a problem. After Sally’s initial visit to our home, when she tested some ideas in response to our initial brief, samples arrived and photo-montages of design schemes were emailed. While we were on holiday in Scotland, Sally arranged for us to visit the manufacturer of bespoke furniture which now sits in our bedrooms, kitchen/dining area, hall and living room. Deliveries were on time and everything was beautifully made. Robertson-Lindsay’s strong attention to detail meant everything fitted perfectly when delivered.
Raymond Robertson, Client - Hampshire

I hired Robertson Lindsay to interior design my sitting room and vestibule and would highly recommend them. The sitting room is the main entertaining space within a Victorian terrace house in central London. Her ideas were very creative and she was careful to give consideration to all factors throughout the process. They understood the brief extremely well and presented options on all elements and guided us throughout. They suggested ideas and designs about the carpentry, which made a huge difference to the room. We retained a few original elements from the room, which were updated and added bespoke new furniture, furnishings and accessories. The end result is a beautiful and contemporary room which fits with our lifestyle and also showcases the house to its potential.
Mr & Mrs Gresty Fulham, Client - London

We have been working with Sally at Robertson Lindsay for several years now. We started with two very difficult small spaces that we wanted to turn into useful areas – an en suite bathroom in an attic bedroom and a triangular space at our front door that we wanted to turn into a utility. We have since redesigned our kitchen, shower room and two back bedrooms. We have also done smaller projects with lighting schemes and just getting her view on decoration and light shades! Sally challenges us to think of things that we might not have as well as respecting what she finds when she visits. I would happily give her the keys to my house and come back to find out what she had done!

John Finch, Client - East Lothian

Sally and her team helped us transform our New Town flat. The proportions were totally different to anything that we were used to and her 3D visualisation and space planning were invaluable in making the space work well. Sally’s extensive contacts made selection of kitchen, furniture and lighting so much easier and we are really delighted with the end result. I can not recommend Robertson Lindsay highly enough- just a great experience to work with such a friendly, professional team.

Jane Neville, Client - Edinburgh

We engaged with Robertson Lindsay to help design our kitchen. Sally did a great job of understanding what myself and my partner were looking for, which were quite different ideas, and helping us select tiles and soft furnishing to compliment the kitchen units. We’re delighted with the end product, and definitely wouldn’t have come up with such a lovely scheme on our own
