“We hired Timothy James for the complete refurbishment of our house in Balham. Tim’s been an absolute pleasure to work with and took all the stress out of the process. From the floor plans, to lighting, designs and even accessories, Tim was able to make the entire process easier than any house refurb I have done in the past. I’m really pleased with the result and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants a less stressful refurbishment done with ease.”

"Timothy James were employed by us to undertake the complete house refurbishment on our rental property - this included a completely new kitchen and conservatory design as well as the design and refurbishment of 4 bathrooms and all the interiors of 3 bedrooms, living room and hallway. I have no hesitation in recommending Timothy James for the design and management of the project: in my experience, they work to an extremely high standard and we are very pleased with the results they have achieved. From the start of the project when Tim met with me and clarified in significant detail what we were after (including budget considerations) to the finished product, Tim's professionalism and knowledge was very evident - detailed information, regular meetings and provision of samples and other visuals with clear explanations, made it very easy for us to see where we were heading and enabled us to make good decisions quickly for our rental. Time lines were consistently met and responses to communication were always very prompt. Tim managed the project very well. Our tenants are in their second year in the newly refurbished house - we were able to achieve a 35% increase on the rent following refurbishment which we were very pleased with. Our tenants are very comfortable there - they very much like the design and layout of the house. My views on the finished product are very simple - I wanted to move in (I live next door) - it is a beautiful house. Tim of Timothy James is a professional with a strong work ethic and I would have no hesitation in recommending him and using him again in the future.”

"Timothy James helped us to plan and decorate our new apartment in Kingswood which is part of the redevelopment of a mid-nineteenth century house by Octagon. Tim’s eagerness to understand his clients made him a good choice for us. Unlike some other people we talked to, Tim was not over-assertive but he had ideas which he¬†pursued with determination on occasion but always he took on board our thoughts too. Of particular note was his reliability, he invariably did what he said he would by the agreed time. Also he was meticulous, especially in his drafting and layouts and he is clearly well-advanced in building up a range of contacts and specialists who seem keen to work with him. He is a nice young man, easy to work with, he has natural good taste and high standards of customer care.”

“I hired Timothy James to redesign my home and to project manage the refurbishment. I chose them over others because they seemed to understand what I was looking for in terms of the design, and because their prices were reasonable. I am very happy indeed with the designs they came up with and how they have been implemented by the contractors they work with. Tim, the creative director, is great at keeping in touch and is easy to talk to. I felt I could trust him to organise everything, even when I moved out for several weeks while the decorators were in. My trust was rewarded with a wonderful apartment, more beautiful than I could have hoped, that feels like new and is getting great comments from everyone who visits.”

“When I purchased a new property two years ago, I was keen to put my own stamp on the place but felt pressured for time and manageability due to my busy working life. Of the several design firms I considered, Timothy James was my instinctive and trusted choice as they proved to be proactive from the outset in listening to and understanding my style, preferences, specific requests and budget. Through close and honest interaction, Timothy James helped to transform the property into a liveable home that fits with my taste and needs. Tim (the Lead Designer) aided the process by creating mood-boards that served to steer my vision. He was extremely patient in searching out colour-schemes, materials and items that aligned with the end-result in mind and on paper. I was able to have complete faith in Tim for smoothly and very effectively coordinating the ordering and delivery process, also carpentry, joinery (including bespoke bookcase, shelving and wardrobe units), plumbing and decorating work. Tim's commitment and hands-on management of the project alleviated a significant burden from me. I later commissioned Liller to design a Monet-themed garden for me, which Tim again took the reins on in delivering on time and fully to specification, adding extra character to the property exactly as I had dreamt of. Timothy James offers a superior quality design service, encompassing sound implementation too, which I have found to be at a competitive price. I would highly recommend Timothy James.”
