When I first began searching for a designer to work with me, it was important to me to find an expert with exceptional taste, a strong colour sense and, most importantly, the ability to interpret a home around my wishes (vs. creating a space that reflected the designer only).
With Caroline, I received all that and more. I am delighted to say it has been a wonderful journey. She is beautifully creative, has unbelievably great ideas, a keen eye for fabrics and is wonderful in the execution – she really makes things happen. Both homes feel like my home and represent my vision.

I cannot recommend Caroline highly enough. In my opinion, not only is she an ‘interiors genius’, but her team provided me with an impeccable service. Her team are small, but very efficient. They are organised, available and talented.
In addition to assisting me in achieving the home of our dreams, Caroline is a joy to work with. She is smart, talented, knowledgeable and extremely personable.
I cannot imagine that you would find a better interior designer to work with.

We have always been delighted with Caroline and her teams’ contribution demonstrated by using her firm on a repeat basis.
She takes into consideration our ideas and what we want to use each room for before developing ideas to discuss with us. Once agreed, she sources and organises material and furnishings and then dressing each room. She works with and has access to excellent suppliers and service providers, who work to a very high standard.

Caroline and the team were terrific. No small detail overlooked and so thoughtful about style in the context of practicalities, without losing character.

We are absolutely delighted with the interior of our new home. Caroline and her team are a pleasure to work with and we cannot recommend her enough. Caroline has an exceptional eye for interiors and all the details that go with it. She listened to our brief, and produced an interior that reflects our family but is also in keeping with her style. She went above and beyond throughout our project and all the suppliers were of the highest quality. We hope to use her on our next home.

It has been such a pleasure to work with Caroline and her team. She was a wonderful guide through the labyrinth of renovation – brilliant at identifying what I liked (and didn’t) and helping me make sense of my rather unfocused ideas. Very subtly and cleverly Caroline led me in the right direction, which ensuring I felt all the decisions were mine. Our house is now exactly as I had hoped – but would never have been able to visualise or achieve without Caroline’s expertise. I would absolutely use her again.

Caroline Riddell is one of those designers who flies under the radar, in that while working on her many projects, all of them very different, she wants “to make a home rather than an interior designed project”. It is a testament to her skill that she manages to create houses that look like organically-evolved homes, while still imbuing them with the sense of harmony that only a professional designer can provide’.

‘She has that knack, I’ve always thought, of being able to combine a great sense of style with an easy-going attitude that makes a house feel ‘designed’ but not at the expense of familiarity or homeliness’
