Love Notes

Read what some our wonderful clients have to say!

Daniel & Melissa Jennings

For nearly a year, I had been attempting to start renovating our house on my own but, I got nowhere as the whole process was extremely overwhelming given, I had no experience. The difficulty in making decisions, coupled with a lack of confidence in my choices and the frustration of trades failing to even provide a quote, left me feeling disheartened and putting things off. However, the moment I was referred to Lynda MacDonald, everything changed. With her expertise and guidance, she effortlessly assumed control, eliminating all the stress and uncertainty that had troubled me for so long.

Lynda's commitment to her clients is unparalleled. From the very start, she led me through each phase of the project, from our initial brainstorming sessions to the finishing touches and stunning final reveal. Her support and patience made every decision feel effortless, as she skilfully guided me through the abundance of choices. Lynda’s flair for design, keen eye for detail and innate sense of style brought my vision to life in ways I never imagined possible. Lynda’s furniture selection and styling transformed my home into a sanctuary of both elegance and comfort, surpassing even my wildest expectations.
Lynda worked extremely closely with the builder and other trades to ensure the entire project ran like a well-oiled machine. Her seamless collaboration and excellent relationship with her preferred builder and tradespeople were truly remarkable, resulting in a level of workmanship of impeccable quality.

I highly recommend Lynda to anyone in search of a talented and dedicated interior designer. Her ability to take the stress out of the job while delivering immaculate results is truly unparalleled. Working with Lynda was an absolute pleasure, and I am forever grateful for the beautiful space she has created for us, exceeding our expectations in every way possible.

I have absolutely loved working with Lynda, from the moment of engagement her understanding of the style I was looking for and the blending with existing furniture that I loved. Her initial proposal was clear, concise and came fully costed making it easy to work through the options and arrive at a final budget. Her attention to detail in ordering, purchasing and coordinating deliveries were first class as with her organising the tradesman who carried out all the fittings from wallpaper hanging to installation of floating shelves, hanging artwork to light fittings and the final dressing of my apartment. She has given me a home to be very proud of and helped to express myself in my home.

Lynda did incredible work in transforming my space. Her talents as an interior designer have truly exceeded my expectations, and I couldn't be happier with the results. From our initial consultation to the final reveal, the attention to detail, creativity, and dedication to making my vision a reality was evident at every step. Your ability to blend functionality with aesthetic beauty is remarkable, and I am constantly receiving compliments on the space you've designed. Not only did you bring fresh ideas to the project, but you also executed them flawlessly. Your professionalism, punctuality, and clear communication throughout the process made this project a stress-free and enjoyable experience. I'm grateful for the way you brought my dreams to life and created a space that reflects my personality and style so perfectly. It's a joy to come home every day. I wholeheartedly recommend your services to anyone in need of an exceptional interior designer. Thank you for your outstanding work and for making my space a place I'm proud to call home.

Lynda is brilliant designer, stylist, colour consultant - the whole package for any project. We started with a discovery call and felt so comfortable with Lynda's ability to interpret our thoughts into tangible design solutions that we took our first steps on the journey to renovate our ageing house into a wonderful and functional home - one that now has the WOW factor. The beauty of Lynda's service is that we were able to stage our outcomes covering off colour, carpets and curtaining before overlaying our full renovation - this gave us as the client the ability to match our needs to our budget. The results of our interior renovation is a testament to Lynda's flair and strength for design, whilst maintaining functionality. Lynda was able to enhance our kitchen and living spaces to create a masterful open-plan design, sourced bespoke cabinetry for our beautiful bathroom and ensuite areas and created a functional laundry with plenty of storage. Finally Lynda styled our renovated rooms creating an ambience to match the way we use the spaces. Lynda was truly our Design Chaperone throughout this journey and we would highly recommend her any project.

I contacted Lynda as I needed guidance and expertise to pull together our renovation in a cohesive fashion. Previously things I had done never turned out how I had pictured them in my head. The Design Chaperone had a service called "Designer on Call" and I purchased 10 hrs of this and worked with Lynda on whatever I chose to do. We did zoom meetings for quick things that didn't need to use up much time, work on site at our home as well as doing things such as visiting tile shops to consider tile selections. Lynda was reliable and easy to communicate with. I can't recommend Lynda and her Designer on Call service highly enough

Jennifer Laws

Lynda was an absolute pleasure to work with. She has the perfect balance of professionalism and yet understanding and connecting with you like a best friend. We have worked with a number of designers before but Lynda was by far the best in her understanding, advice, and wisdom. The results speak volumes to the quality of her work. She has a natural talent and ability in translating our words and feelings into quality furnishings, finishes and renovated spaces. We felt completely at ease entrusting Lynda with the design, selections, overseeing the construction, and craftsmanship with the tradespeople and placing all the details for our final reveal. I cried on seeing our dream spaces come to life, exceeding our expectations in every way.
 Thank you Lynda for all you do, we are so very grateful.

Catherine Bond

We invited Linda to help bring our large open living space to life - an oddly shaped blank canvas. After one meeting with Linda, we left the design to her creative genius. We are thrilled with the end result, with Linda's vision for what was possible far better than we could have ever imagined without her assistance. Though delighted with the outcome the journey was also a joy. Linda was very good at listening to our preferences whilst also offering different alternatives and perceptions of furniture, furniture layout, soft furnishing combinations and light fittings. Her brilliant advice culminated in a very welcoming yet exquisite living space which blends nicely with our outside vista. Linda also arranged and managed our fire and chimney construction, which had its design complications that she navigated with all the confidence of someone who truly understands good design and flow. Linda's enthusiasm, patience, idea generation and communication throughout was first rate. Thank you Linda - you did an awesome job and we could not be happier.

We highly recommend Lynda from The Design Chaperone for any of your interior design needs!
