Testimonials

Vahena is a very professional, gifted and passionate interior designer. We needed to remodel an outdated 1960’s house we had recently purchased to make it our home and Vahena provided great input as much in terms of spatial design and layout as in terms of kitchen or bathroom design. She provided concept boards, samples for all the materials she recommended, costing for all the furniture and fittings, from floorings to bathroom tiles, kitchen to bathroom furniture and fittings, light fixtures to window treatments. She challenged us to step out of our comfort zone on some aspects of the design and we are so happy we did: the bespoke staircase she designed for us is one of the most stunning elements of our new home. Vahena is truly easy to work with and made the project hassle and stress-free for us! I wish we had used her services with our previous property, it would have avoided us a lot of headaches and time spent working with a number of suppliers – all that with both my husband and I having a very young family and 2 full-time jobs.
I highly recommend Vahena for multi-spaces renovation projects. Ours simply would not have happened without her. If anyone living around Cheltenham (UK) is thinking about using her services and would like to see what was achieved with our house, get in touch!

“We bought our first house in 2017 and, as both my husband and I were on work assignment outside of town for a few months, we asked Vahena to manage the improvements we needed to make in our home. Even though we were away from our new house and could not meet with Vahena on site on a day-to-day basis, we immediately had the feeling that Vahena would carry out our project perfectly well for us. We shared with her all our dreams and took her recommendations on board, continuously exchanging emails including sketches, ideas, budget updates, and furniture and fittings selections. Throughout the property renovation project, Vahena was very helpful, staying within budget and completing our renovation on time. She gave us useful advice, she listened to our ideas and dreams very carefully and incorporated all our ideas into her design schemes. She took over the redesign of our bathrooms the minute she got hold of the keys from the real estate agent who managed our property purchase and hired plumbers, tilers and decorators on our behalf. I would encourage anyone who needs guidance, professional service and a friend by their side to consult with her. She is fabulous. Thank you Vahena!!!”

Vahena project managed and designed an 85m2, two-story extension of our detached Georgian property in Cheltenham. We are both busy professionals with a large family and having her on board made the upheaval of such a huge project relatively painless. Despite the Covid pandemic, Vahena brought the project to completion on time and on budget (yes, you have read this correctly!). This is an incredible feat for which I give credit to Vahena and the fantastic team she works with. Vahena patiently and expertly guided us through the multiple versions of our build. She skillfully navigated us from the design we originally thought we wanted to the ‘blue sky’ version of the build and back down to the reality of the build we needed, wanted and could afford.  Nothing was ever too much trouble, she was always patient and professional, offering guidance where needed. Vahena is passionate, tenacious, enthusiastic, organised, flexible and her communication is exemplary. She works alongside a team of experts
including structural engineers, architects and builders. The stress of finding the best tradesperson for each aspect of the build was therefore taken out of our hands. By listening to our vision and getting to know us and our family, Vahena was able to understand the design which suited us in what I can only describe as a completely bespoke individualised service. I cannot imagine undertaking a project
of this magnitude without her; she was indispensable and I really cannot recommend the service offered by Vahena Marsili  Interiors enough.

Vahena helped us with the renovation of the kitchen & dining spaces of our holiday home in Somerset. The results speak for themselves, and we now have  modern, beautiful new spaces for our guests. Vahena is very helpful, always punctual and efficient in all she completes, and most importantly she will assist to make sure everything runs like clockwork.
