M Brühl, property company Managing Partner, Frankfurt
I can hardly begin to thank you for the ultra efficient project management and tasteful interior design which you provided in the refurbishment of our London flat. This was all the more miraculous against the background of restrictive lease conditions which hardly allowed the curtains to be drawn without first obtaining the landlord's permission, as well as medieval plumbing which required the equivalent of triple bypass surgery to continue functioning. Your excellent taste, common sense and attention to detail also achieved the near-impossible in delighting three generations of the Brühl family simultaneously. You converted a troublesome wreck into a showpiece which is a pleasure to live in. My heartfelt thanks.

LIFE Style recently came up with concepts for our living room. We were delighted with the ideas, which were very well put together and presented. The attention to detail and creative flair was very inspiring, and resulted in a much improved living space which we are really pleased with.
L Warfield, Wandsworth
I was thrilled with the concepts created by LIFE Style for my children's playhouse. Their ideas were creative and inspiring and included theming the space which really appealed to my children and to me as their ideas also included an area for adults. The concepts are practical, have longevity and were cleverly designed to be executable in stages according to budgetary constraints. Anne Marie and Nicola were a pleasure to deal with - I cannot recommend them highly enough.
S Everard, Managing Director, Putney
My wife and I hired LIFE Style just before our wedding in July 2008. We were asking for the impossible and they delivered! We couldn’t face the challenges of merging our possessions and redecorating our home before the “Big Day” so we consulted LIFE Style and they organised all of the works, decorating, removal vans, de-cluttering and restyling to be carried out the week we were away on our honeymoon. We couldn’t believe the transformation when we returned. The house looked amazing, I don’t know how they did it all in such a short space of time! They even helped us with our wedding gift list and took receipt of deliveries whilst we were away so everything was in place. They were always very professional to deal with, had great ideas for the house and were flexible; they even rose to the challenge of merging our very different styles and budgets. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

LIFE Style’s service was fast, efficient and professional. Their ‘problem solving’ was creative yet pragmatic. Before I knew it, a job that had been niggling me for years was done. I am now looking for another project to entrust to them!
F McKenna, Pimlico
I had meaning for some time to 'finish' our house, where we had lived for 5 years. Items such as rugs, mirrors, tables were needed. However, I didn't have the time to trawl round shops to try and find things I liked and would suit our rooms. (I had tried with a rug only for 3 different ones to be returned!).
I found LIFE Style on the web and went for a 'no strings' consultation. I immediately felt I could work with Nicola and Anne Marie and felt they understood what I was trying to achieve with a small budget.
I have been absolutely delighted with their recommendations which have included a gorgeous rug, side tables to a fabulous chandelier which they gave me the confidence to go with. They have transformed our house and it now feels 'finished'. The process was enjoyable and the financial side straightforward and transparent. They also recommended a builder plus a fireplace/fire supplier who I dealt with purely via email and internet!
I would highly recommend them.
M Sargeant, Equity Partner, Islington
For several years I lived in clutter, constantly putting off the inevitable work that was needed to undertake some remedial work on my flat, and then modernise it - largely because I didn't have the time or inclination to wander around kitchen shops - let alone project manage a complete overhaul of most of the flat. On top of that, I didn't know any local builders/contractors that I could trust. With a full-time job, the whole thing seemed too difficult and became easier to leave for another day. However, having decided to bite the bullet and do something about it after 3 years in the flat, I then realised I didn't really have the imagination to do it properly - I would have just gone for standard designs. Basically, I needed help on design and project management.... And that is when I came across Anne Marie and Nicola.
I eventually decided to go with them because I trusted that my project was genuinely important to them, they were extremely organised, their designs opened my eyes to what might be possible, and perhaps most importantly, I genuinely liked them and thought I could work with them. I am delighted that I trusted my initial instincts as well - I can't say the project was stress-free, but it was made so much easier by LIFE Style - their communication was fantastic, their problem solving was innovative, and their attention to detail all made the experience as pleasurable as possible. They always had stacks of ideas for everything, and regularly put up with my indecision, but we got there - and I am delighted with the results - there is absolutely no way I could have achieved the result on my own - and I don't believe I would have got anywhere near the same level of service or final result with a big project management firm where my flat would have been too small for them to get truly excited by, and where I would probably have ended up with a text-book solution - this I could have done myself. I would whole-heartedly recommend LIFE Style - they have saved me time, money and stress, have been a pleasure to work with, and created a home that is now a pleasure to walk back in to.

LIFE Style LLP has been providing me with management service and project management over the last year. During this period I have found the business to be very efficient and extremely helpful, especially on those occasions when I approached them with enquiries or non-standard requests, and I recommend them without reservation.
V Murad, Roehampton
Living abroad I was looking for a company that could help with all the furnishings and décor of my flat. From the outset Anne Marie and Nicola have been a pleasure to work with. I knew the look I wanted to achieve and they created this with flair and talent. Everything was very well organised and they are excellent communicators, which was very important to me. I could rely on them for everything and was able to walk into my new completed home just a short while later. All in all the project went very smoothly and I am really pleased with the finished look. Anne Marie and Nicola are a very professional team and I would not hesitate to recommend them.
