Jody came to our Garden Centre and used her creative flair to decorate some of Christmas trees for display. We were very impressed with what she did and have received so many comments from customers about her creations. Not only was she extremely inspiring, but Jody was great fun to work with. We would most certainly recommend her magic touch.

Jody from Ivory Tree came up with a very creative solution to my problem of how to "dress" a large, arched window. It now looks amazing!

The covers and flags are absolutely wonderful, thank you so much for your expertise!

Thanks to you Jody – the bar looks great and we have achieved the desired look with a fairly minimal outlay. Rarely do we get private contractors in and get to the completion of the project having met the original project intention... I personally think that the mess and the bars patrons from the many different bays / sections / flights / squadrons / wings and stations will look to you in the future. I for one will certainly be singing your praises!
Jody's wide knowledge of her industry coupled with her calm, professional attitude and total commitment to her customer is both rare and a delight to come across. Her suite of capabilities is impressive, and I would highly recommend her.

Just a quick note to thank you for all of your assistance in the decorating and furnishing of our new house. As you know, it has been a big job as the house has needed complete redecoration after we bought it and we had absolutely no furniture!
You were able to resolve the ‘colour wars’ between myself and my partner (we both knew what we wanted for the walls but had trouble articulating it) and we love our lounge and dining room. I was amazed that you had gone to the trouble of ordering in a special fabric sample for the lounge room curtains which turned out to the be perfect one, although I never would have thought of it myself. And you found a way for us to use that rug we bought in Morocco before we even had the house.
You have a great eye for colour, and for working with people to understand what they want. I am very grateful and look forward to finishing off the last few rooms. Roll on the guest room next!

Jody is a talented and extremely reliable person. She patiently guided us through the maze of our house renovation while always remaining good humoured and pleasant to deal with. She clearly identifies the terms of reference and tries to stick to them. She has her own great ideas for interiors but will always listen to the client. She pulls together a good team, and the craftsmen she used for our project have worked to a very high standard. I highly recommend her.

We met with Jody when matters began to go wrong with our builders; bringing Jody in as a project manager. Already aware of her skills in interior design, we found that she took our problems by the scruff of the neck and ran with them. Impossible to speak too highly of Jody, her skills as a negotiator, the punctilious nature of her paperwork and memos, notes and general recollection of events in our dealings with the builder. She was and continues to be supportive way beyond the bounds of duty and has proved an absolute boon to deal with. You won't find better anywhere

I've used the services of Ivory Tree Designs several times in the past (for my own home as well as for several high-end inner London flats that we rent out) so I had no hesitation whatsoever in calling on Jody's services again when the time came for a spruce-up. As always Jody's ability to get hold of all the elements of a project and deliver on time and, in this case, under budget, came to the fore.
If you need to use your space in the most efficient manner, have it look good and feel comfortable - all within the parameters you set - then I'd suggest you call Jody at Ivory Tree Designs today!
Jody's pragmatic, down-to-earth and practical approach was just what I needed when I moved into a house the builders had left unfinished and the removals men had delivered everything and unpacked nothing because there was nowhere to unpack it. A few short, simple steps began to make it a home. And she explained where I didn't need to spend money, reducing the panic attacks still further.

Jody is an inspired designer with an exceptional talent for making your home feel even more 'like you'. She has the most amazing book of contacts, and is able to source items that you didn't even know existed, but that you really, really need. Jody is unfazed by budget (large or small), or scale of project, and her design consultation services are truly invaluable. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Having used Ivory Tree's services a few years ago to do a complete refurbish of three flats, a garden and the common parts of a 5-story terrace in Palace Gardens Terrace (London), I contacted Jody again late last year when I bought a new house.
As I had expected Jody's inspired, but professional approach came to the fore. She sat down with my partner and I and worked through the differences of opinion we had about the colours, fabrics etc. - and - with the brief in hand, returned with some fantastic ideas for the house.
I'd recommend Jody and Ivory Tree to anyone needing a personal, professional service - with a touch of design inspiration to make the result your own!

I have used Ivory Tree Designs before, and was very pleased with the service I received, so when I wanted new full length curtains for my dining room I did not hesitate to contact Jody for her assistance. Jody offered suggestions for the best style of curtains but recognised that the final decision was mine. The finished curtains are beautifully made and were finished within the timescale quoted by Jody. I can recommend her services unreservedly.

Just a quick thank you for your expert advice and great service with regards to the blinds you repaired and installed at our offices in Thorney. We would definitely recommend and use you again!

Jody Atkins has an incredible ability to quickly analyze the layout of a house and offer suggestions about colour, furniture and the best utilization of space. Within an hour, during a recent visit to my home in the US, she had recommendations for the living room, dining room kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms. I would not hesitate to use her for these services.

Jody is great to deal with and so easy to talk to without me feeling the slightest bit worried to express my own thoughts and suggestions.
She listened to my ideas, took in the whole of my home and made changes that not only improved the look and functionality of my rooms, but fitted in with the lifestyle led by the whole family.
I would recommend Jody to anyone wanting to improve their home - from simple upholstering to a total make-over.

Jody at Ivory Tree Design is very easy to deal with, her professionalism and attention to detail are second to none. Her ideas for interiors are very up to date and original, combining quality fabrics with great colour schemes. I would certainly not hesitate to recommend her services.

I recently used Jody for a complete redecoration of my two-bedroom flat. From the start Jody offered an extremely professional, personalised service. The colours and fabrics she helped me choose were fantastic and all delivered with my limited budget in mind. The team she hired for the painting and carpeting were also top rate, reliable and professional. I am extremely happy with the result and am continuing to use Jody to now help source furniture for my home.

I haven't yet had the pleasure of working with Jody but having met her recently at a design-led gift and home accessories exhibition, I instantly recognised in her the sort of qualities that are enormously desirable in someone within the interior design industry. Jody has an amazingly approachable manner, boundless enthusiasm for her job (and for the work of others) and immense knowledge in her field. I can hardly wait to get her down to Devon to help design the bedrooms in my Bed & Breakfast. If you are looking for someone who genuinely wants to help you satisfy your needs and outreach your expectations, Jody is your girl! I have absolutely no doubt that she will deliver superior design solutions to my very doorstep and am looking forward to the experience of having her in my home to bring fresh and inspirational ideas to my business. Her prompt and energetic response to my cry for help is quite extraordinary given that she clearly lives a very busy life! Thank you Jody.

Jody at Ivory Tree Designs has come up with a simple but stunning design for my open plan living area, which really brings the room to life. She listened to what I wanted and her design incorporated everything she was asked for, and within budget as well.
She has also had my dining rooms chairs re-upholstered to match the new design scheme she has drawn up. Both the fabric chosen, and the standard of work, are excellent.
I will certainly be using her again in the future!
