What my clients say...
Kate was really helpful suggesting colours and more for rooms I wanted to change up. Her practical approach and knowledge of colour have created schemes I’m really pleased with.
Kate has helped with a series of decorating conundrums, both supporting ideas and making them work. Among them she encouraged me to decorate a room in a colour that I would not have chosen and was reluctant to try. That room now looks as though it would not suit any other colour. Working with her has been a very positive experience and transformed the house.
I have just finished putting in place all the suggestions that Kate gave me as part of my consultation. I am not a visual person so even when the decorating had started I wasn’t sure if it was going to look right - but I absolutely love it! I would never have thought of the things that Kate suggested and I am so pleased with the results. I would totally recommend.
We have spent 18 months renovating our bungalow. Having finished the structural work, we were struggling in making decisions about furniture and colour schemes. I approached Kate to help us with the lounge, kitchen and hallway. Kate has been a joy to work with – her understanding and interpretation of our style was spot on. We are very excited about implementing Kate’s designs and we hope to work with her again on the bedrooms and bathrooms.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Kate - she has done an amazing job and we are delighted with the outcome.

We cannot recommend Kate highly enough. She has helped transform what was becoming a totally overwhelming renovation into a manageable, creative and visioned project, increasingly filling with the warmth of hope and possibility. She has helped us keep finding trust that what we had bought really could become a transformed lovely home. I cannot imagine us getting through this project okay without Kate's warm professional and inspiring support. Right from the start we knew we would enjoy working with her and that she was the person we needed. She listens to us; understands our needs and longings; adapts the consultations with us as required; is right there to help with us with decisions; has great ideas to offer without pushing anything on us; helps with nitty gritty thinking around problem areas, as well as supporting our dreams. We are so glad we went for the packaged option with Kate as we needed as much help as we could get and it has been amazing value, including being able to connect by email over niggling questions that we felt confident Kate could help us with. 'Confidence' is in fact the key word for our work with Kate...we have felt such confidence in her guidance and she has helped give us the confidence we need to create a beautiful home.
Kate stepped in to help us move forward with our redecoration plans earlier this year. There is so much choice out there that I felt completely paralysed! We wanted a colour scheme for the whole house that could hang together while allowing each room to have its own identity. Kate delivered in spades and we are finally now getting round to bringing her vision to being, we've done two rooms so far and they look fab. Kate introduced me to paint brands and depths of colour I would never have considered and I love them all. What's really great is that Kate listened to us, and saw the potential that we couldn't see in our home, we have a colour scheme that is entirely ours and works perfectly in our home. Kate doesn't impose her taste on her designs but she certainly brings class and style. I'm so glad we decided to work with Kate, and would highly recommend her to anyone. Thanks Kate, you're a star ⭐
Kate, has made a massive difference to our home, giving us confidence to make changes with her fantastic vision. We love the changes and Kate has made the process easy with her guidance and patience. Very responsive to questions. Can not recommend her highly enough. Thank you Kate
We have never used an interior designer before and were a little apprehensive if it would work for us. We shouldn't have worried - Kate was amazing. We had a two hour consultation to discuss ideas for replacing our conservatory with something more functional, but we covered so much more. Kate takes the time to listen and understand the way you live and what you want to achieve. She helps you to look at things differently and offers a lot of constructive ideas. She has also enpowered us to be bolder in our choices and it so totally works. We would have no hesitation in recommending Kate and intend to use her again for our bedroom which has been a sticking point for a number of years!
I commissioned Kate to come up with a new layout and design for my photography studio and I'm absolutely thrilled with what she has come up with. I can't wait to get started and reopen for studio appointments. I highly recommend Kate.
Birgitta, Commercial Client
I would highly recommend Kate . She is extremely professional, highly reliable , friendly and creative .
We have studio flats that needed designing from scratch in order to rent via Airbnb . Although Kate hadn’t had experience of this type of job previously, she took the time to research the competition and
the demographic needs ,as well as listened to our wishes and needs for the property.
Kate has provided us with mood boards and colours to complete our studios . She has also given us suggestions of where to source products to furnish the rooms.
Without Kates help we were struggling to visualise our completed studios but now with Kates both practical and creative input we can can move forward and complete our project .
I would not hesitate to employ Kate again in the future as she has far exceeded my expectations.
Nicola, Commercial Client
After looking at my brown and boring lounge I enlisted Kate's help for a radical change. She very quickly offered suggestions for different wall paint and produced samples plus a change of lamp shades and curtains. She also suggested rearranging the furniture which has worked well. The final touch was a large rug which Kate helped us search for incorporating colours I would not have thought of. I love the lounge now and would recommend Kate without hesitation.
Jenny, E-Design Client
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.
Andrea, Area Manager
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.
Sally & Tony, Shrewsbury
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.
