Mary is a true professional who's only objective is to please her clients.
When we started out to completely re- design our living room the layout was difficult to work with so we looked around for help. Our main concern in bringing in a designer was that they would take over and try to impose their ideas on us. From the outset Mary assured us that her priority was to give us a room that was not only beautiful but one that we would be totally comfortable with, could live in on a day to day basis and that would fit our budget. True to her word Mary worked with us every step of the way. When we wanted to tweak her designs she listened and came back with alternatives that better reflected us. She could do this because she took the time to get to know us and our likes and dislikes. There was no trying to get the job done as quickly as possible to get paid as soon as possible. Mary was happy to move at our pace and stage the work over an extended period of time to fit our cash flow.
We now have a room that we have long dreamed of and one that we could not have done on our own. We could not be more grateful to Mary and her team of highly skilled professionals and have no hesitation in giving her our complete endorsement.
Mr. & Mrs. Demorais, Ewell, Surrey
Mary has just completed a total interior redesign of our four bedroom 19th century brick and flint cottage. As a recently retired couple you can imagine it was with some trepidation we embarked on this project, as it was to be our first experience of handing over decision making and execution to someone else. We were brave enough to put our complete faith in Mary and her ability to correctly and imaginatively interpret our fairly vague thoughts as to how we wanted the house to work for the two of us, after being a family home. We wanted to preserve a common theme throughout in sympathy and in character with the house. Through Mary's style and ingenious use of colour, she has managed to achieve an end result where all the rooms link together but each has its own unique colour scheme and identity. Her use of wallpapers, fabrics, furniture and lighting create a very special ambience. The quality of the work, carried out by Mary's sub-contractors and suppliers, was exceptional - especially the decorators, radiator cover, carpet and curtain fitters - and her furniture suppliers were all very keen to please. Understandably in a project of this size snags will, and did, arise but Mary took all of this in her stride and everything has been completed to our total satisfaction - Mary is certainly not prepared to accept second best on behalf of her clients. A definite and crucial added bonus was Mary's very friendly, approachable and professional manner right from the initial phone call, through the meetings, presentation, subsequent discussions and emails to the final sign off. We can thoroughly recommend using Mary and her company Designer Touches and will not hesitate to use her again should the need arise.
Mr. & Mrs. Hill, Great Missenden, Bucks
We wanted to thank you for the wonderful work you did at our new home. Not only did you furnish and decorate with exquisite taste, but you did so with sensitivity, always taking our preferences on board and never once "forcing" a concept or a design on us.
You started the project with a fairly blank canvas and the end result is that we have a beautifully furnished home of which we are so proud and which is a delight to live in.
In addition to your obvious flair and good taste, we were very impressed with the detailed costings which you submitted at every stage of the project, managing the entire process professionally so that there were no bad surprises, either in terms of cost or in terms of delays.
Mr. & Mrs. Perkins, Walton On Thames, Surrey
We used Mary Georgiou of Designer Touches in connection with a major refurbishment of a large old property. She assisted in transforming itinto a beautiful home, sympathetically combining modern with periodinfluences. From the ideas stage to the final fitting, she approached the project withfriendly enthusiasm. She encouraged us to consider new ideas but wasalways at pains to ensure we were comfortable with the concept. She washappy to accommodate our ever changing timetable, and her staff were allreliable and professional. We are delighted with the results of her work.We can recommend Designer Touches for delivering a thorough, professional and quality service.
Mr. & Mrs. Reid, Bookham, Surrey
I am delighted to recommend Designer Touches, having just had my lounge redecorated. Mary's window treatments are particularly good and I have had excellent feedback from visitors especially ladies about this aspect of her interior design. She has an excellent eye for furniture arrangements and artwork which are tasteful and modern and she does take into account clients preferences. The works are carried out professionally with the minimum of fuss and to a high standard.
Mr. W, Fetcham, Surrey
Mary, at Designer Touches runs a well organised design service with efficiency and creative ability. The flexibility to work around our requirements was invaluable.
We are all delighted with the beautiful curtains and certainly will be contacting Mary for future projects.
Mrs A, Austrian Embassy, Belgravia, London
Designer Touches came highly recommended to me so after one meeting I decided to engage them to design all the interiors and redecorate and supply furnishings and accessories where suggested. The finished result is of an award winning standard.
Mary Georgiou is so passionate about all jobs she undertakes and will not settle for anything less than perfection.
Her attention to detail can be seen in every area throughout, including other items that have to be contracted out. Mary will take you through each stage of the process from enquiry to completion, giving you a dedicated professional hand held service, every step of the way. I could say many more things about Mary, her passion and eagerness to get the best possible results, but the best way to find out is try for yourself and see if you really can do better.
Mr G. Nagioff, Managing Director, Aaron Properties
I considered very carefully before appointing an interior designer to manage my project. Designer Touches listened carefully, interpreted my wishes and produced designs which matched my preferences and resulted in beautiful room transformations. A project on such a scale cannot be without its problems, but the approach of Designer Touches to handling problematic issues has always been exemplary and I feel that they have my best interests at heart. I could never have achieved so much without them and would not hesitate to recommend them.
Mrs. P, St George's Hill, Weybridge, Surrey
Meeting Mary and the team at Designer Touches has been really positive. They have taken what was essentially a nice house and turned it into something magical and so beautiful to come home to and spend time in. They started by designing and totally transforming the bedroom, lounge, dining room and hall and it was all so fantastic that they are now working their magic on the other rooms. They took time to find out what sort of look and feel we were looking for and then created their designs from there. The attention to detail, high standards of execution and professionalism are outstanding and the whole team are great to work with; I would highly recommend Designer Touches.
Mrs. S, Lightwater, Surrey
Engaging someone to design the interiors of is not an easy task. I had many fears and reservations but I am so glad that I put them to one side and engaged the services of Mary and her team at Designer Touches. She has created a stunning home for us, which we are very proud of. Mary had a very specific brief, with a tight budget, and she worked extremely hard to meet and exceed our expectations. We wanted the house to have a sophisticated and warm contemporary look. Mary achieved this through her innovative use of colour and fabrics. Each room in the house flows but still manages to retain its own unique character and ambience. The furniture, lighting and accessories complete the contemporary look we were wanted. I am so pleased with service provided the team at Designer Touches, and have no hesitations in recommending them. They are professionals who are passionate about what they do.
Mrs. S, Esher, Surrey
We asked Designer Touches to help with the decoration of our Lounge and Dining Room, and are truly delighted with the results! Mary Georgiou was a pleasure to work with from start to finish: She gave excellent advice at all stages and has created and executed a superb transformation that successfully melded our tastes and budget with her inspiration and expertise. On top of that Mary took care of all the practicalities along the way and never arrived without a smile! All our visitors comment favourably on the results and we look forward to Mary working her magic on other parts of the house.
Mr. and Mrs. F. - Fetcham, Surrey
We were delighted with the outcome of work done by Designer Touches which was specifically for our hall, landing, stairs and cloakroom, and our visitors' bedroom, all within our overall home concepts and requirements. Mary worked closely with us, providing great ideas, options and detailed and clearly stated costings. We worked together before finalising the scheme. Of course we loved her 'Rolls Royce' option but in part agreed certain cost reductions which still has given a 'Porsche' result. Mary operated in a most professional way, to time and with precision and a real attention to detail and finish. All works were completed within pre-agreed budgets.
We had also recently completely refurbished our kitchen, but it lacked a certain 'wow' factor and here, separately, but by use of simple colour and material changes, Mary has really given us something we love, are proud of and admired by our neighbours and friends. We have no hesitation in recommending Mary and Designer Touches.
Mr. and Mrs. G. - Camberley, Surrey
Designer Touches provided a completely professional yet very friendly service, and from initial ideas to completion of the project on three rooms in my house I was thoroughly impressed. I am delighted with the results, which receive many compliments, and would not hesitate to recommend the firm or to use them again.
Mrs W. - Cobham, Surrey
I am pleased to recommend Mary Georgiou at Designer Touches for her interior design services. Mary's designs are stylish and elegant and their simplicity leaves plenty of scope for any future additional dimensions you may wish to add. Her approach is relaxed but entirely efficient. It is most reassuring to receive a stress-free service and I was particularly pleased with the quality of the decoration.
Mrs. E. - Claygate, Surrey
I've recently constructed 3 houses / mansions in St Georges Hill, Weybridge, Surrey. Designer Touches came highly recommended to me so after one meeting I decided to engage them to design all the interiors and redecorate and supply furnishings and accessories where suggested. The finished result is of an award winning standard which can be see upon request. Mary Georgiou is so passionate about all jobs she undertakes and will not settle for anything less than perfection. Her attention to details can be seen in every area throughout, including other items that have to be contracted out.

Mary commands respect by the way she deals with everyone from the start of the project.

Mr. Gary Nagioff, St George's Hill, Weybridge, Surrey
Our project was on a modern property, and the story boards and swatches Mary provided gave a very good indication on how the finished project would be. Tradesmen were very reliable and professional and carried out all aspects of the project without supervision. My wife and I are extremely happy with our investment and have no hesitations in recommending Mary (Designer Touches).
Mr. Whitaker, Burgh Heath, Surrey
We have employed Designer Touches for our projects on two separate occasions and are very satisfied with the level of work carried out, Most importantly, the work has been completed to our complete satisfaction and on time scales outlined prior to commencement of projects, on this basis we would highly recommend Designer Touches.
Mr & Mrs M - Chigwell, Essex
Designer Touches transformed our plain but spacious apartment into a very smart, co-ordinating home. Mary's choice of colours and style works so well for us, and which is admired by all our friends. Thank you, Mary.
Mr & Mrs M. - Weybridge, Surrey
Designer Touches offers a very friendly and efficient service, which gives best value for money. Every customer is valued and customer satisfaction us given highest priority
Mr & Mrs S. - Sprowston, Norwich
We recently had a considerable amount of work done on our house which was organized and completed by Designer Touches. We would highly recommend Mary, who is the amiable boss of Designer Touches, to anyone who asked us about her work. She was efficient, always available and highly creative. Her team of workmen were skilled in their various fields and Mary herself was knowing as to colours, materials etc. However, what impressed us more than anything else was the way she dealt with problems. No job goes without hitches, things are found that could not have been foreseen in any job. She was calm, in control and never flustered. A thoroughly professional and honest company.
Mr & Mrs G. - Cheam, Surrey
Your work was exactly what we wanted, and the service you provided was very good and flexible. Your tradesmen were also excellent - the decorator and the curtain makers and fitters. We are thinking of moving again. so we may be contacting you again for your help!.
Mr & Mrs B. - Oxshott, Surrey
We were delighted with all the work you did for us and would have no hesitation in recommending Designer Touches. Everything was dealt with in an extremely professional and friendly manner from start to finish. It was refreshing to have such attention to detail as well as imagination and flair..
Mr & Mrs B. - Dorking, Surrey
As I began working with Designer Touches soon after moving to the UK from South Africa, meeting someone like Mrs Georgiou was God sent - especially as I did not know how things operated in the UK. During the time that I have been associated with Mrs Georgiou, I have come to trust her judgment and rely on her implicitly. Throughout the time that we have worked together, Mrs Georgiou and her team have remained professional in their approach to business while simultaneously retaining a warm and friendly relationship. It is on the basis of this positive relationship that we have developed over the years that I will continue to use Designer Touches for future projects and indeed, recommend to other interested parties.
Mrs. F. - Esher, Surrey
We moved into this house just over a year ago and are doing a gradual refurbishment programme. When I initially approached Mary I was looking for someone that could translate a fairly loose brief into creative design boards and be flexible enough to accommodate a phased approach to the rooms and, of course, my indecisions! Mary has certainly delivered an elegant and contemporary look for our home and we are delighted with the results!
Mrs. Maxwell, Weybridge
I have engaged Mary Georgiou on a number of occasions for assignments at both my company and my home. I have found Mary to:
- Have ideas which are modern yet classic
- Have a quality colour co-ordination
- Have an excellent grasp of proportion ie what doesn't work
- Really understand incorporating technology into presentation rooms/board rooms/home cinemas and offices
- Position costs in a quality yet "value for money" range.
I would not hesitate to use Mary for all our forthcoming initiatives.
Mr. R. Cobham
