I was recommended to Norfolk House Company by one of their former clients – the owners of an exquisitely furnished and historic B&B in North Norfolk. As a frequent guest during the course of my own property development, I was always impressed with the craftsmanship and quality of the curtains and blinds – it was evident that a lot of expertise and thought had gone into these.
My own property incorporates a unique industrial building into a newly built extension – and took a lot of time and effort to realise. I was very concerned that we would not lose the character of the original structure when we made decisions about interior decoration.
In our first site-meeting I was extremely impressed with how quickly Jean Gardiner assimilated the building and understood what we needed to achieve – both in terms of style and (equally importantly) budget. We have worked on the building together over many months and she is has helped us turn a blank canvas into a very special home.
I would consider myself a perfectionist and have some very clearly defined ‘likes’ and ‘dislikes’ when it comes to design. However Jean (and her team of makers and fitters) is also a perfectionist and certainly helped me push the boundaries when it came to selecting fabrics and styles. I am delighted with the end result and, because we had such a thorough dialogue, have no regrets about any of the choices we made (and there were quite a few!).
The interior now reflects the character of the building – 100% bespoke! Equally importantly we worked within a realistic budget – and, whilst you get what you pay for, I know for a fact that we would not have paid significantly less had we engaged a larger department store. The end product is vastly better however – and I speak from experience!
Having moved house several times in recent years, we have been fortunate to be able to rely on the Norfolk House Company. Jean Gardner has always helped with our previous house moves, providing expert guidance on choice of soft furnishings. The curtains and cushions are of excellent quality, as is her flair for fabric and colour. Her attention to detail is outstanding. Whatever problem is put her way, she manages to solve it. Our current house has some pentagonal and triangular windows, which we thought would be very difficult to curtain, but Jean has provided some beautiful curtains for those.
She has the ability to turn a house into a home that anyone would be proud of.
We have no hesitation in recommending the Norfolk House Company unreservedly to anyone who is looking to make their home a special one.
"Jean couldn't have been more helpful when we moved into our house just before Christmas several years ago. She and her team helped us to sort out fabrics for curtains, blinds and cushions, and before we knew it the house was done! Everything was perfect, and beautifully made. Since then we have used her for other smaller projects, and she is always very willing to go out of her way to help. We can't recommend her more highly.'
