Testimonials of courses

It was lovely to meet you and I had a great day. I have come home and looked at the house with different eyes. My mood board was especially useful to discuss with Tim too and as expected the bright pink velvet armchair wasn't for him!

It really was a pleasure.
NJ Omeru, Introduction to Interior Design

Susan Llewellyn has been an inspiration and a constant source of support and encouragement. Having her as a tutor, mentor, boss ... has in no small measure contributed to making me the designer I am today, and the lessons she has taught me continue to steer me towards becoming the designer I can be tomorrow.

I would like to thank you very much for being such an inspiration and for support and guidance in my career.

Thank you very much for today! It was very instructive and fun, as usual. I have learnt so much from you both.

I wish you great success with the Academy and am sure you will get it! A bientot.

I was very fortunate to have worked under the direction of Susan Llewellyn. Her guidance and plethora of knowledge is second to none. Susan's critiques are invaluable and  bouncing ideas and thoughts around the table with her is the only way to brainstorm!

Susan's passion for interiors and their history is contagious, her involvement and excitement really gives you a boost, inspiring you to really embrace your project. Thank you, Susan, for helping to unleash my creative side, providing me with the confidence and self belief to take on any project!

A wonderful experience always remembered.

Many thanks for your article on Hotel Arts. It looks great; I love the detail about Frank Ghery's family life - I had not heard that before. So glad you enjoyed your stay!

Thank you so much for a lovely day at Chiswick House. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and it was a pleasure meeting Susan and Sara.

For those interested in interior design and particularly the Arts and Crafts style, visits to Emery Walker's House and William Morris's Coach House workshop are 'must see' visits.
The unique interior of the first, and the chance to see Morris's original design drawings at the second, are a real treat for both experienced and novice interior designers.

The knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides at both venues further help to bring this period of design to life.
A most enjoyable day. Thank you.

I really enjoyed our visit to Leighton house - right company and information. Many thanks. Also liked the house as an interesting example of a Victorian monument.

Architecture: simple, unassuming outside, functional and ordered inside, designed to suit the lifestyle of the individual owner, accommodating his collection of art, reflecting his personal rather eccentric taste; satisfying work conditions, most important area being the studio bathed in light; exotic surroundings for relaxation and social activities with details carefully supplementing the main features.

Interior design: unique with its oriental flair - Arabic entrance/courtyard – the beauty of its tiles, magical, yet peaceful, intellectual as well as warm and welcoming. Altogether homogeneous with its concept of geometrical (Pythagorean) order. I was moved by the bedroom’s starkness, a reflection of the deeper nature of Leighton as an artist striving for perfection in an intrinsic sense as well.

It is always interesting and enjoyable to go on a visit led by someone who is very knowledgeable about the subject. This visit to Chiswick House applied some of the principles of Palladian design to modern day decoration in addition to admiring the beautiful original schemes.
Rosemary H.

Very informative, learnt a great deal. Wish it were a little longer. Had a lovely day.
