Rotterdam Apartment

“There are no end to the positive things we can say about working with Charlie! She takes a complex process (with seemingly millions of options) and boils it down to a clear design direction, with manageable (and fun) choices from well-vetted options. She has found and curated the very best craftspeople to work with, because they love working with her – as much as her clients do. From painting to textiles to serious construction, everything is of the highest quality and calibre. We could not be happier with the way she transformed our home, in both style and function.

With every project also come some emotions and dreams, and alongside her competent professionalism, Charlie approaches her clients with understanding and empathy through the ups and downs (of which, thanks to her, there are few!). Through every step, we felt like we had a partner who not only understood what we wanted from the design but also the experience of renovating our home. She preemptively communicated about things she thought we might be worried about or interested in, which made the overall process feel engaging, exciting, and never overwhelming.” Mark and Melissa

Townhouse II, Rotterdam 

“Creative yet structured, jewel box of ideas and an excellent listener, patient and focused. We had a stellar experience all around. The result – a dream home. We haven’t been easy customers: me – knowing exactly what I want but cannot precisely describe, detail-obsessed; my husband – demanding, and uncompromising on quality. Thank you for not firing us as clients, Charlie. When things didn’t go as planned, Charlie always found a plan B and a plan C; to my crazy ideas, she always came back with multiple options to match. We are utterly grateful for realising exactly what we dreamed of.” Irina Brouwer

Loft Apartment, Little C, Rotterdam

“What started as a design for our kitchen became a design for our entire apartment! We became more and more enthusiastic about the way Charlie works; creative, in consultation and always with various options to choose from. From the first moment we moved into our new apartment we felt at home.”

“With a modern, bold and elegant style, Charlie makes use of the characteristics of each space in her designs. She thinks through and gives advice on every aspect of the project in great detail. She came up with surprising proposals to create a stylish and high-end interior. Never could I have come up with something like this myself, or have I come across anything like it elsewhere.” Linda Voortman

“Despite a working background in project management, the thought of renovating my entire apartment and what that might look like felt daunting and a little overwhelming, especially given my jumbled, myriad of ever-changing ideas! And what if I didn’t like the end result?? Charlie, a consummate professional, calmingly stepped in and very quickly ascertained what I was looking for, asked intelligent questions and took the reins, checking in with me where necessary, always driving the project. Her creative direction was spot-on, she totally ‘got’ the aesthetic I was trying to achieve and her attention to (gorgeous) detail was second to none. She was always mindful of my budget and quick to suggest workable, stylish solutions to fit with my financials. I’m delighted with the end result – my home is both beautiful and functional. I can’t wait for her to help me with my garden design!” Lucy Burke

Bianchis Restaurant, Bristol

“From the moment Charlie stepped through the door you could see her excitement and instant enthusiasm for the space. She took a lot of care in understanding not just the aesthetic we were looking for but the practicalities as a business we had to prioritise. We spoke of how the restaurant was seen by its adoring neighbours and she was quick to advise on how you engage with locals regarding works and assured us that although she wanted to make subtle changes the restaurant would retain the key features so many people loved it for.

The whole process of working with Charlie was brilliant from start to finish. It was professional, engaging and ultimately, we now have an extremely stylish restaurant that has class without being pompous. From a practical prospective the restaurant has a great flow and our customers are constantly remarking on how beautiful the place is.

I would highly recommend using Charlie for any interior design project and one day I hope to work with her again, just maybe not on another restaurant as 5 is quite enough for now!” Ben & Josie Harvey
