"It has been a pleasure to work with Katie and her team on our recent Clapham scheme. She is unusually skilled at listening to and interpreting her clients requirements, and brings a strong but sensitive, clear but open steer to the projects on which she works. A good range of contacts and products at her fingertips prove the icing on the cake. We are delighted with the new scheme!" Sharon Scott - Owner/ Founder Indigo Scott
'Working with Katie on the transformation of my home took away all my pressure and stress. If you had asked me 6 months ago what an Interior Designer does I couldn't really have told you. Now I know both what she does and the value of working with Katie. I had been procrastinating for about 3 years about doing work on my flat; I had bored my friends to death with shall I, shan't I, I even spoke to an architect who had drawn me some plans however, it was Katie who gave me the confidence to get going. She spent time at the outset understanding me and how I would like to live. Next she brought me carefully prepared concepts and designs to consider, making amendments to her designs as she read my reactions. She then organised her building team and got cracking.
Katie managed the whole thing from start to finish with weekly meetings on site to guide me through the build. She involved me just as much, or as little, as was needed to make design and finishing decisions as we moved through the 3-4 month project. What she did was invaluable. The time she saved me in research, sourcing, organisation and agonising over 'does this thing work?', the opportunity cost, i.e. I could focus on my business and the resulting peace of mind was more than worth Katie's design fee. I now have a new home which I love. I can't praise Katie and the lovely bunch of guys she assembled to 'do' the build enough'. Private client - references available on request

She and her team have achieved a scheme which elegantly combines the modern and the traditional which is exactly what we were hoping." Private client - references available on request
''Thanks to the wealth of experience McCrum Interior Design has in the field, coupled with their understanding of the market means they consistently deliver designs appropriate to the sales expectation for our properties, We have come to regard them very much as part of the in house team rather than an external consultancy. Katie has been a pleasure to work with over the last 2 years and we look forward to maintaining this strong, mutually beneficial relationship in the future.” Niall Henderson - Development Director, LBC
''I have worked with Katie/McCrum Interior Design on complex Central London residential sites with mixed tenure. Katie, understood our aspiration for high quality design across all tenures but also the robustness required for long term management. Katie advised on layouts and materials and designed for us a collection of timeless interiors, which have added value to the different types of residential and commercial spaces being delivered. With Camden/the Local Authority coming from the starting position of wanting to build a reputation for quality residential, her attention to detail and experience served us well. We worked closely together building up an easy client relationship, which allowed exciting creative and practical solutions to develop quickly." Lisa O'Hagan - Development Director, London Borough of Camden (LBC)
