  • Even though we had only asked for a quick splash of paint on the walls to freshen up the place, they were so thorough and careful in everything. They did way beyond what I expected – cleaning the woodwork, filling in cracks, really caring about doing the job well. They left the place clean and tidy and even brought their own tea and biscuits!

  • Rosie and Anna did a brilliant job decorating my 6 metre high hallway and staircase. They also gave me some good ideas about how to introduce more light into my dark hallway. They gave a really good all-round service, and at a very reasonable price! It was a pleasure to have them around because they are considerate and friendly, and I’m thrilled with the result.

They have also decorated our son’s bedroom including painting the floorboards white. They did a fantastic job and left the house clean, tidy and very welcoming after. (SK, Jan 2014)
