’ We knew that we radically wanted to change our current decor in our living room, especially as we were having a modern kitchen extension built but we did not have a clue where to start from in terms of matching colours, textures etc. We enlisted the help of Cocoon who with the right question got out of us our preferences which meant that our colour and decor was tailored to suit our English and african cultures. We did not know what to expect and Angela was brilliant in asking the right questions to come up with an amazing board.
The idea of the concept board is great as it enabled us to visualise what the end result would look like and also enabled us to shop sensibly and gave us something physical and mobile for us to constantly refer to as we shopped for the items to refurbish our home.
We would definitely use Cocoon Home Styling again and would highly recommend their services as they provide you with fresh and inspirational options you would not have previously considered for your home. We found them supportive throughout the process as we were able to ask questions when purchasing. Can;t thank them enough!’ Alan and Rose, New Malden
‘Thank you so much Melanie and Angela. We just love the board for our kitchen- you have given us the inspiration and confidence we need to turn it from a cold, clinical box into a welcoming and happy space. You did a fantastic job to interpret my random, jumbled thoughts and come up with a beautiful, and easy to implement scheme. We’re really grateful and won’t hesitate to get back in touch when we need help again. Thank you!’ Emily, Southfields
‘Moving back into our house after extensive renovation meant that I had a blank canvas to work on. What I thought was going to be an exciting project soon felt overwhelming. With a young family and a full time job to juggle, spare time was scarce and 3 months after moving back, our living/ kitchen space was still very bland looking. I then remembered reading an article about Cocoon Home Styling services and decided it was time to get some help! The whole process mainly help me refocus on the project, provided reassurance on the choices I was making and gave me some fresh ideas too (I particularly love the idea of introducing teal as colour for accessories in the living room area). The board is a great visualisation tool on what can be achieved. After our meeting I immediately ordered the fabric suggested for the kitchen blind and some of the accessories. I am so grateful for the help and great ideas. It has given me the boost I needed to finish decorating our home. I can’t wait to invite you back to share the final result with you!’ Claire, Twickenham
‘As working parents we had little time or energy to put the finishing touches to our building project. We also have little or no artistic flair and were at a loss as to where to start! You listened to our requirements and really “got us”. We didn’t just need inspiration, we needed to be told what to buy and where and you did exactly that and more. The results more than exceeded our expectations! We look at our concept board every day! It helps us visualise your ideas and is a constant memory jogger on what you discussed with us and what we are aiming for. It’s not a random collection of colours and swatches and pictures- all the items on it are real things that can be bought from our shopping list and hence the result is achievable! We wold definitely use you again! It was a pleasure working with you both. You’ve been so helpful and understanding and we would not hesitate in recommending you to others.’ Mei, Strawberry Hill
‘After moving house and renovating, our home was a blank canvas. I had no idea where to start with colour palettes, furniture or soft furnishings. I had a vague idea of style but I simply could not make it a reality. Angela and Melanie came up with fabulous mood boards which pulled together everything I was looking for; colours, wallpapers, fabrics, ideas for furniture and decorative touches- all of which fit my taste perfectly. I used the boards to co-ordinate my efforts and keep focused on my goal of ‘finished’ rooms. The swatches on the board often came with me in my handbag on shopping trips and before long my rooms were complete in a way I couldn’t have imagined. I am thrilled with the end result. Angela and Melanie helped us work our existing furniture into a scheme that worked beautifully. My husband was amazed that what began as a board with fabric and wallpaper samples and images of furniture, eventually translated into a room filled with the things we love, in a new and stylish setting.’ Olga, Hampton
‘Thanks for all the brilliant ideas and suggestions for all the rooms, you girls have really inspired me… I look forward to inviting you back in the near future for a cuppa in a much more pretty home!’ Carmen, Weybridge
‘My friends have all commented on how lovely and how ‘me’ the flat is. You have more than exceeded my expectations and I have already recommended you to others.’ Rosemarie, London SE1
‘‘We are SO pleased with the end result and all your imaginative and creative ideas. Thank you so much for all your help with our house. It was a real pleasure to work with you.’ Jo, Esher
‘You produced lovely concept boards to get me to see the potential of my house and made me feel really inspired. I was extremely happy with the results. I was impressed with your ability to get absolutely right the ‘look and feel’ that I wanted for my home. I loved working with you and would definitely recommend you to others.’ Tania, Twickenham
‘You gave me the momentum needed to make the necessary improvements, and your ideas were things I wouldn’t have considered on my own. would recommend you to anyone whose house is in need of a bit of tlc, no matter how big or small the project!’ Debbie, Twickenham
