We partnered with Jo on an extensive renovation and extension on our home in Richmond. She was instrumental in making everything work and we are so, so thrilled with the finished works. Jo is very solutions focused and always came armed with ideas, great suppliers and contacts, energy and some really brilliant spatial planning. Jo is a real team player, working well with the construction team, building trust and always being available when needed. Would highly recommend Jo.

Jo took on our huge project with ease and a smile. We relocated to London from South Africa and needed a professional to help us with our new home. We needed a huge project done on a budget in a short time. Jo exceeded our expecations and listened to exactly what we wanted and needed. We really do not know what we would have done without her! Her professionalism, hard work and eye for design is exceptional! We will definitely recommend Design & Conker to friends and family, as well as to anybody else,

Design & Conker Interiors helped redesign our flat in Richmond Surrey. She not only picked all the colour schemes and furniture but designed a bespoke home office and new bathroom. I can't recommend Jo enough. She is extremely professional, hard working and has great ideas. She was on site dealing with the builders. She has the ability to speak their language and gain their respect without once compromising on her expectations and attention to detail. Jo is the ultimate team player, always available and responsive and I simply enjoyed everything about working with her. I will definitely be using Jo when we do our next project.

Jo helped us design two bathrooms and a bespoke home office as part of our home refurbishment. We thought we could manage it on our own but soon realised that we needed help. Both bathrooms and home office required a professional approach to maximise space while hiding all the convoluted pipework, gas meters, boiler and truncated staircase. Jo is extremely creative with great attention to detail. She presented us with several unique proposals for one traditional and one more contemporary bathroom and incorporated our feedback into the final design. During installation, she made several site visits to ensure the builders and carpenters stayed on spec. The outcome was remarkable - a true transformation for which we have received many compliments from stunned visitors. We were so pleased with the results that we enlisted Jo's help to remodel out home office. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Jo and can highly recommend her for her high quality design work and professionalism.

Jo designed three shower rooms in our refurbished house. We gave her some general ideas of style and colour schemes which she then incorporated into the designs. She was able to design in a variety of styles, including classic, modern and contemporary, and gave us several choices for materials and finishes. We were presented with detailed images of the final designs so that it was easy to see what the shower rooms would look like. We were also given clear information about costs of each of them and the overall cost of the project. During the installation process Joanne made several visits to site, working with our installers to ensure that the design specifications were followed and informing us of progress. She also came to inspect our finished shower rooms making sure that everything was installed correctly and according to the designs. Whilst in particular one of the shower rooms has a very contemporary feel, all her designs are very pragmatic and functional which is a great accolade to the care and attention to detail. We now have three extremely well appointed bathrooms which we are very happy with. Visitors to our new home have commented on the quality and uniqueness of her designs.

Joanne came to the property to review the damage caused by a previous builder. They should have transformed our flat in Notting Hill into something warm, cosy and sparky. It didn't work and I needed help. From the moment Joanne entered the flat it was obvious she would do a good job and she did. The materials were ordered from companies that delivered and building works were completed on time. Budgets were also kept to deadlines. Jo has great ideas and is a pleasure to work with. Our flat is now great and we haven't touched it since. I would not have any hesitation in recommending her.

I first met Joanne (Design & Conker Interiors) when purchasing my bathroom suites and she very quickly
built my confidence in that she knew what she was talking about. I recognised that I needed help. If you’re going to do up a million pound house, I needed to ensure that the bathrooms/fittings were
in keeping while keeping tight control on the budget! Jo provided designs for all of the bathrooms, focusing on the use of plain tiling with small accentuated areas of more expensive tiles to
provide a stunning contrast. She also introduced me to the concept and beauty of cleverly built in niches – no need for additional shelving or racks to hold your shampoo etc, cluttering up your
bathroom. This combination has led to a up market hotel look, one that I would never have managed to achieve myself. Having recognised Jo’s eye for style and detail, I was grateful to her for
advice on other aspects of the house. The kitchen floor tiles are a perfect match for the units and worktop and the clever widening of the doorway into the living room with the insertion of glass
panels, brings the two rooms into perfect proportion.
Starting with a blank white canvas, Jo’s advice on colour has been extremely valued throughout the house, from endorsing the kitchen colour scheme, to the tiling and mirror/glass panels in the bathrooms, to the accent colours in the bedrooms, to the wall feature for the sitting room and the picture frames for the hallway. The clever use of colour has helped to give the house that wow factor that greatly exceeds the associated cost. I never thought that I would be living in such a beautiful house and I'm eternally grateful to Jo for helping to exceed my dream!
