Vahena is a very professional, gifted and passionate interior architect. We needed to remodel an outdated 1960’s house we had recently purchased to make it our home and Vahena provided great input as much in terms of spatial design and layout as in terms of kitchen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 the architect, sourcing and managing a builder – all that with both my husband and I having a very young family and 2 full-time jobs.
I highly recommend Vahena for large property 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!!!
