What my clients say...
I can’t recommend Kate highly enough. Not only is she talented, she is organised, professional, committed, enthusiastic, quick to provide creative (and often money saving) solutions and great fun to work with. From the first meeting I knew I could get on with Kate and we continue to collaborate really successfully on our ongoing project. She was genuinely passionate about the renovation of our Georgian home and took great care to understand our tastes and how we planned to use each room. She took detailed information on what we had in mind, used that as a starting point but elevated our thoughts into stunning, stylish and carefully thought through mood boards. We were delighted that she had understood precisely what we wanted to achieve but lacked the skills to do alone. Since then she has worked tirelessly sourcing the perfect items. She does not prod us towards overly expensive fabrics or items but always has an eye on budget and good value. She considers the practical as well as the aesthetic in all areas. She has shown great flexibility with the shifting timelines of Covid times and kept us on track with sourcing lists and schedules of paint and fabric choices. Without Kate, we could never have achieved anything approaching the end result we will soon see to fruition. For what she has delivered I consider Kate’s services to have been terrific value for money. We couldn’t be happier that we found her.
We moved from a Victorian House to a modern apartment which threw me into a complete frenzy. I felt that all our traditional furniture / mirrors/old clocks just didn’t look right. I decided to take some advice and came across Kate’s website, from the minute I started to speak to her I knew everything would be ok. Kate is friendly, likeable, approachable, professional, knowledgeable and extremely kind. I booked a consultation where we talked about sofas, tables, lighting, wallpapers, even discussed a piece of art from an art gallery for a large wall that is bare and needs something special. Kate gave me so many ideas, practical advice, whilst listening to everything I said and never pushing her opinion on me. We discussed placement of furniture and size of lighting, paint colours too, nothing was too much trouble. A few days after the consultation Kate sent me a report of everything we discussed whilst jogging my memory with paint colours and links to wallpapers and tables. Kate also made me realise I had some lovely clocks and mirrors and we discussed mixing old and new, advising me not to sell everything. I feel I can move forward again and will definitely ask Kates advice / opinion again. Give her a call you won’t be disappointed, a really lovely lady who knows her stuff. Thank you Kate.
Never thought we'd use an interior designer, for concern that recommendations would be unrealistic, expensive and an offer of a 'not us' design. Far from the case with Kate. She spends time to understand her clients, to ensure she can offer the 'right' design options, even with a scant brief! She's happy to suggest upcycling of existing furniture, rather than recommending new and can instantly see what isn't 'working', whether it be wall colour, accessories or lighting. We're only part way through the new look, but already thrilled. We're now loving a room that we didn't even know we didn't like. Can't wait for the final reveal. Thanks Kate, we'd definitely use you again.

I would highly recommend Kate for interior design, I approached her to design our home to make it warm, cozy and welcoming. Not only is she brilliant at understanding what you are looking to achieve, she also takes great care in making sure you understand what she is picking and the reason behind it based on what you have asked for. Nothing has been too much trouble for her and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Kate as I have also learnt so much! I am so pleased with the outcome and would definitely go back for more ideas in the future.
Carrie, E-Design Client
Kate was really helpful in preparing a paint schedule for us and making suggestions on furniture and accessories. We were not sure how to create the look we wanted for our new town house in Shrewsbury. Thank you, Kate. We will be back for more advice.

I enrolled the help of Kate while doing a whole house refurbishment. Following rewiring and re plastering, I soon found myself in need of help with colour choices for every room. I instantly felt at ease with Kate and realised what a great decision I had made in employing her services! Going from being bamboozled by the huge selection of colours I felt safe in her suggestions and actually felt that I was going to be able to change a 1960’s non-descript farmhouse to something spectacular for all the family.
My living room used to be a room that was so very bland - and I really didn't like being in it at all. I hadn't got a clue where to start with decorating it. Then along came Kate and she helped to transform it into a room that I love and love being in - it has changed my life dramatically.
Rachel, Digital Project Manager
We asked for Kate's advice because we hated our living room. The decor made it look cold and cluttered and we rarely used it. Kate came and had a look - she discussed our likes and dislikes, what we wanted from the space and our budget. She created an inspiration board with suggestions for paint colours and accessories, incorporating our existing furniture, as we had requested and a much loved picture into her design.
Throughout the process we felt that Kate really listened to us and didn't try to impose her tastes on us, whilst also encouraging us to move out of our comfort zone and be a bit bolder.
We would never have made the paint decisions she suggested but she was absolutely right in her choices. She saw our room through fresh eyes and brought her experience and passion for interior design into our home.
We adore our new living room. It feels so much bigger and sophisticated. We now spend as much time in there as we can.
Sheila, Charity Volunteer Coordinater
We'd probably gone through a hundred plans and ideas for our living room and dining room before we discovered Kate Parslow Interiors. During a consultation visit and chat over coffee Kate fully understood how we used both rooms, our likes and dislikes when it came to colour, pattern and fabrics and appreciated the time and budget we had available.
Kate's ideas were presented to us on a digital concept board with detailed instructions on colours and paint, which we could simply hand over to our decorator. As well as tips and ideas on lighting and furniture - a godsend for our busy lives.
Fiona, Programmes Manager
I took some persuasion allowing someone else to suggest what I thought I already knew. Kate helped us transform our living room. So much so it's generated momentum in the way we look at the rest of our house. Kate isn't just another designer working with what's current, pushing the latest must have colour and 'look'. She brings out your personality and works with what you have, even if you can't see it yet. That's the magic.
