I would thoroughly recommend JC Design Concepts. Jacquie has arranged and advised us in respect of several roman blinds. They were produced very promptly and fit absolutely perfectly. We are extremely pleased with the high standard of both the service and the final product. Diana M
JC Design is the interior designer you need to have in your black book: knowledgeable, professional, works to your deadlines as far as humanly possible, always proposing cheaper alternatives and a genuine interest in ensuring ideas and purchases work with your family surroundings and preferences. Working with Jacquie was a real pleasure.

Jacquie was friendly and professional, and suggested a good range of fabrics for our curtains, helping us to settle on materials we are very happy with. She took care of all of the details, including arranging an excellent fitter. We're very happy with the finished results and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jacquie or to work with her again.

We recommend JC Design Concepts for friendly, efficient and stylish service. The prices for a pair of large roman blinds over bifold doors, and a separate smaller blind were competitive, the results good and achieved in a very reasonable time frame. Although we had already selected our fabrics, Jacquie was able to advise on its suitability.

Jacquie from JC Design Concepts was incredibly efficient and helpful from start to finish in advising and making curtains and blinds for my bedroom. Being colour blind means colour choice is always controversial and Jacquie assisted greatly in this area, even making an extra trip to my place to help the final decision making process! I would highly recommend JC Design Concepts - pleasure to do business with.

Jacquie worked with us over the last year on a number of decorating and refurbishment projects. She started by really listening to us and understanding our requirements in depth. This helped us get a clear idea of what colours, fabrics and textures would work. Her listening skills are exemplary and made a huge difference to quality of what we were able to achieve. Added to this was her creativity that got us to an exceptional result.
We now have a redecorated master bedroom with a classic yet contemporary feel. We also have several items of new and refurbished furniture that Jacquie skilfully helped with fabric choice and suppliers. Included in this work was:
· Full refurbishment of Louis XVI armchair and 1890’s chesterfield sofa.
· Sourcing of two new Kit Kemp chairs with a dashing orange and pink colonial print
· Sourcing of three new armchairs, each with it’s own tailored style and colour scheme
· A bespoke glass coffee table
· Recovering of a pouf in a striking Jonathan Adler fabric
· Double headboard for the master bedroom in a blue geometric pattern
· Living room, library and dining room rugs
We were delighted with the way in which Jacquie worked with us and the highly bespoke results she achieved. We have now asked to work with Jacquie as both designer and project manager for the full redecoration of our Shad Thames Penthouse.

Jacquie Cheetham of JC Design Concepts has recently advised me on a refurbishment of our kitchen/family room. I wanted to change the look and make the room more “grown up” and add colour. Jacquie was inspirational in her use of colour and light. She introduced me to colours and textures for rugs and soft furnishings that I would not have thought of and everything works beautifully.
The curtains were made and fitted in record time and the rugs ordered and delivered absolutely on target.
The new look has been much admired and Jacquie is a genius! She is delightful to work with and the whole process has been a joy.

I found JC on the best of Wimbledon and Merton last year when I was about to move home. They have been wonderful in helping me select curtains and some furniture. They have also been extremely useful in putting me in touch with a number of good tradesmen. I look to recommend them at every opportunity.

We recently had a loft extension done and were looking to have some black out blinds for the new loft bedroom and guest room. We wanted made-to-measure Roman blinds of quality and durability, but those that did not cost the earth. Jacquie supplied us with just that. We came to her with the fabrics we wanted, she suggested how they should be put together and within 4-5 weeks they were delivered. They look fantastic, have been made to an excellent quality, and we have had a lot of compliments. We could not recommend Jacquie highly enough.

We are so pleased to have been able to involve Jacquie concerning a virtually complete make-over of our three storey town-house. The task involved the scrapping of all carpets and curtains and much of the upholstery and lighting whilst accommodating a modest collection of paintings, large collections of books and blown glass and numerous mementos from travels around the world. Jacquie’s advice was crucial in establishing the design criteria for every room and determining the guidelines for the selection of colour themes for decoration and patterns for upholstery materials, carpets and curtains. She also provided the motivation for de-cluttering whilst keeping essential art and craft items for display.
Jacquie used her contacts with various trades to assist in the negotiation of contracts for work and supply of materials for re-decoration, electrical wiring, carpeting, re-upholstery and the making of curtains and cushions. Work started with the replacement of all windows and proceeded, floor by floor, in an orderly way so that within a period of eight weeks completion was achieved with only a modest over-spend. Jacquie was in regular contact to inspect progress and to iron out difficulties and she returned, after a suitable period of adjustment to our new surroundings to provide excellent advice on the re-hanging of paintings.
At all times Jacquie has been full of imaginative suggestions which have also inspired our own ideas. In a friendly and positive way she has carefully guided us and given us the confidence to embark on the series of decisions which has resulted in a new home with which we are delighted. We have no hesitation in recommending Jacquie Cheetham to provide a comprehensive service in the many inter-related aspects of interior design.

Recently, Jacqui at Design Concepts transformed my small sitting room with imaginative ideas which updated the fairly tired scheme in the room. I was having difficulty visualising what I could do to change it and make it more contemporary whist keeping with the decor in the rest of the house. She quickly tuned into what I wanted and had the vision to interpret this into marvellous ideas. She gave me a great range of fabric options and helped me to choose. There is quite an odd window in the room and she changed the curtains to a large blind in a beautiful fabric, which looks fantastic, more sophisticated and has not only totally improved the feel of the room but has made it seem more spacious. The blind was also beautifully made and installed.
This recent project is not the first she has done for me; Jacqui also decorated two bedrooms making beautiful blinds, headboards and cushions. Her strong insight into what I wanted combined with her great taste, ideas and attention to detail meant that the result was fabulous and something I could never have done myself.

I have used Jacquie at JC Design Concepts on two occasions now and both times I have been extremely pleased with the outcome.
The first time was for our open plan kitchen and living room area and Jacquie found a fabulous fabric and produced some beautiful curtains to link everything together; she also found a great fabric for our sofa which she had recovered beautifully. Further, she found a super large storage cupboard for my china and designed a bespoke TV/storage unit to match.
More recently, I contacted Jacquie again, when we required further work on our house. This time we wanted to change our staircase to more of a contemporary design with glass panels, alter the surround of our fireplace and have our wooden floors re-polished. Jacquie prepared some drawings and found a beautiful selection of stone and granite for us to choose from. She introduced us to her joiner and then project managed the work whilst we were away. We are delighted with the finished result.
I found Jacquie to be pleasant and easy to work with and would have no hesitation in recommending her.

I was recommended JC Design Concepts by a friend.
We had just moved into a new house and I was keen to adapt the main reception room for our family needs. Jacquie designed a TV unit and shelving so everything can be neatly put away. She also added additional storage under the length of the window and gave us a beautiful window seat which the children - and cat - love! Further she found some great fabric for me which was made into Roman Blinds and together we chose a new sofa and cushions. With thanks to Jacquie we now have a perfect family sitting room. I will soon be asking her for help with the children’s bedrooms.

Our refurbished antique chair is looking beautiful. We have admired it all weekend, even when I came home very late on Friday evening after a long gruelling week in Stockholm it brought a smile to my face as it was so lovely - the French Polishing on the wood and the upholstery is just perfect!

JC Design Concepts supplied the blinds for my office last month - the whole procedure was carried out with efficiency and speed and was no hassle to me which is exactly what I wanted. The blinds look super, so thank you Jacquie!
Sept 2010. I have known Jacquie for some years now as a good friend who will always go the extra mile for you. Recently when we had to try and find a suitable replacement for irretrievably water damaged curtains she was an absolute godsend, scurrying across London to check up on different manufacturers’ fabrics and getting us sent a grand selection of just the right samples in doublequick time when other “experts” we’d been to had failed to deliver. She seemed to know from a phone conversation exactly what was in our minds and went on to organise just what we needed. She is so knowledgeable, patient and professional with a marvellous sense of what fabrics and colours will go where, and we would absolutely recommend her.
I have been working with Jacquie for the last few months redesigning the two main reception rooms in my house. I have really enjoyed the whole process. Jacquie soon discovered my taste in colour and design and came up with ideas which were exactly the look I wanted. She found fabrics which I'm sure I would never have discovered even if I had the time to look and was able to pull a look together with her great eye for complimentary furnishings. What I really like about Jacquie is that she has the patience to let things evolve over time. She doesn't push you to go with her ideas which I'm sure some designers are want to do and I feel that we discovered the look that I wanted in partnership and at my pace. It is very easy to do this with Jacquie as she has a lovely bubbly personality and is a joy to bounce ideas around with. I would have no hesitation in reccommending her services.

"Thank you so much for all the work you have done over the last couple of months. We are absolutely delighted with the finished result. Your brief was to provide curtains, blinds and shutters together with soft furnishings for our new holiday home. We wanted it to be simple but stylish and at a reasonable cost. This has all been achieved and within a very tight timeframe, with everything delivered on time before Christmas.
There has been much anticipation and absolutely no disappointment. Many thanks again."

I was delighted with J C Design Concepts. I needed bedroom curtains for a large bay window and I was introduced to the company by a friend. I was given a great individual service by Jacquie Cheetham, who was very helpful, efficient and competitively priced. There was a particular attention to detail, which was reassuring.
I would certainly recommend her company to friends for all aspects of interior design. I am having more work done and will definitely use J C Design Concepts again.
