Interior design of the living / dining area is a great reflection of my identity - from the things I love to the way my friends feel - cozily and easy. Furniture and accessories enhanced the sense of space turning my room into a warm place to live.

I had spent much time going round in circles trying to decide on the look for our living room. Angela at Cocoon Home Styling really understood my tastes and came up with a fantastic concept board to spur me on.

I asked Cocoon Home Styling to help me design my lounge as I did not have enough time to do the research myself and I liked the idea of getting a professional designer's ideas for this room. Melanie and Angela asked all the right questions in order to understand my priorities and taste. They definitely met me expectations. I think that the concept board service is great and I would use Cocoon Home Styling again and would recommend them to others.

Last year, Melanie and Angela from Cocoon Home Styling helped me with my lounge - they gave me ideas on how I could pull together some items that meant a lot to me and I was very pleased with the results. I have just had them back to help with my kitchen, living and dining space. They helped me to add warmth and cosiness to a large contemporary space mixing old with new and giving it a Scandinavian feel and I am delight with the results.

I wanted some new inspiration as my child had reached nearly 9 and the need for everything in the house to be child friendly and child proof had
diminished. Cocoon gave me a detailed plan and fantastic ideas on how to utilise my living room space to create a cosier and more stylish adult environment.
I love the concept board, as I can come back to it at any point long after the home visit, and be reminded of what the vision is.
I would absolutely use the service again, as it feels like really clever friends who happen to be interior designers have visited your house. The expense of interior
designers and the materials they want to use is beyond the budget for most working parents with kids. So the way in which Cocoon use the best of the high street brands to create an affordable new look is inspired and it doesn't need to break the bank.

Working full time and running a teenage son to and from sporting events most weekends meant we didn't have the time to turn our loft room into a teenager's bedroom. By chance we found Cocoon online and sent a request to them to see what they could do to help us. Angela and Mel responded immediately and came round to chat to our son (and us) about what he wanted/needed. They had no hang ups about working with a 13 year old on the design for his room. They listened to what we needed from the room (storage) and to his specific colour, style requirements and then set about finding and recommending furniture choices, accessory ideas, carpets & the local craftsmen needed to create the room. Everyone they recommended to us were great from carpenters, to carpet specialists, decorators, electricians and shutter designers; the quality of all their work was only bettered by their friendliness, flexibility and reliability. Mel and Angela were a joy to work with throughout. They regularly checked up on how things were going and helped us coordinate the various work going on, completing the project in record time. The end result can be seen on their case study page - teenage boy bedroom. On top of this room, they helped us turn our sons old room into a peaceful, simple white guest bedroom. A completely different style to the modern teenagers room, this room is beautiful with a wonderful day bed, antique grey/white furniture and mirror. They have transformed a small box room into a room that feels and looks twice the size. I would thoroughly recommend Angela and Mel's service to anyone and will definitely be using them again in the near future. Not only are they both stylish and professional, they are just nice people who you would welcome into your home.

Thank you so much Melanie and Angela. We just love the board for our kitchen - you have given us the inspiration and confidence we need to turn it from a cold, clinical box into a welcoming and happy space. You did a fantastic job to interpret my random, jumbled thoughts and come up with a beautiful, and easy to implement, scheme.
We're really grateful and won't hesitate to get back in touch when we need help again. Thank you!

Moving back into our house after extensive renovation, meant I had a blank canvas to work on. What I thought was going to be an exciting decorating project soon felt overwhelming. With a young family and full time job to juggle, spare time was scarce and 3 months after our move back, our living/kitchen space was still very bland looking. I then remembered reading an article on Cocoon Home Styling services and decided it was time to get some help!
The whole process mainly helped me refocus on the project, provided me reassurance on the choices I was making and gave me some fresh ideas too (I particularly love the suggestion of introducing teal as a colour for accessories around the living room area).
The board is a great visualisation tool on what can be achieved. After our meeting I immediately went on ordering material suggested for the kitchen blind and some of the accessories.
I am so grateful for the help and great ideas. It has given me the boost I needed to finish decorating our home.
I can't wait to invite you back and share with you both the final result!

As working parents, we had little time or energy to put the finishing touches to our building project. We also have little or no artistic flair and were at a loss to where to start! You listened to our requirements and really "got us". We didn't just need inspiration, we needed to be told what to buy and where and you did exactly that and more. The results more than exceeded our expectations! We look at our concept board every day! It helped us visualise your ideas and is a constant memory jogger on what you discussed with us and what we're aiming for. It's not a random collection of colour swatches and pictures - all the items on it are real things that can be bought from our shopping list and hence the end result is achievable! We would definitely use you again! It was a pleasure working with you both. You've been so helpful and understanding and we would not hesitate in recommending you to others.

After moving house and renovating, our home was a blank canvas. I had no idea where to start with colour palettes, furniture or soft furnishings - I had a vague idea of the style I wanted but I simply couldnt make it a reality.
Angela and Melanie came up with fabulous mood boards which pulled together everything I was looking for; colours, wallpapers, fabrics, ideas for furniture and decorative touches - all of which fit my taste perfectly.
I used the boards to co-ordinate my efforts and keep focused on my goal of "finished" rooms. The swatches on the boards often came with me, in my handbag on shopping trips and before long my rooms were complete in a way I couldn’t have imagined. I am thrilled with the end result.
Angela and Melanie helped us work our existing furniture into a scheme that worked beautifully.
My husband was amazed that what began as a board with fabric & wallpaper samples and images of furniture, eventually translated into a room filled with the things we love, in a new and stylish setting.

You produced lovely concept boards to get me to see the potential of my house and made me feel really inspired. I was extremely happy with the results. I was impressed with your ability to get absolutely right the ‘look and feel’ that I wanted for my home. I loved working with you and would definitely recommend you to others.

You gave me the momentum needed to make the necessary improvements, and your ideas were things I wouldn’t have considered on my own. Would recommend you to anyone whose house is in need of a bit of tlc, no matter how big or small the project!
