Testimonial from The Dunkinsons

"We are utterly delighted with our new room, and are so pleased that we had the services of Torn & Cotton Interiors to help us with the design."


"Using Torn & Cotton Interiors to help us with the design of our lounge was our very first experience of using interior designers. We are renovating a victorian house in Bedford which had stood empty and unloved for seven years before we moved in. The house has needed significant work to make it habitable, including new water main, full rewire and complete heating system. We've been living here for three years, and (with some blood, plenty of sweat and definitely a few tears) have completed around 75% of the renovations.


"We engaged with Torn & Cotton Interiors at a point where we were quite exhausted by it all (the decisions, big and small, are endless!) and we needed help to figure out how to make one of the most important rooms in the house look and feel perfect - the lounge.

"On our first meeting we had a lovely chat and had a tour of the house. Charlotte and Kerrie asked plenty of questions about our tastes, budget, and lifestyle. They were quick to pick up on all the important factors - and we were convinced that they would help us to 'be brave' and pull together an amazing design.

"On presenting the initial concepts, it was clear that Torn & Cotton Interiors had understood us and our brief perfectly. They came up with a stunning design and room layout that was faithful to the age and original features of the house, but that also pulled it smartly into the 21st century.

"From there, Torn & Cotton Interiors continued to help us by developing a shopping list of items including furniture, artwork, lighting and fabrics. They were able to find items to fit our budget from many sources, including some beautiful antiques. Their creative skills continued as they provided advice for the layout of our art wall. They were adaptable, flexible and patient; and very sensitive and responsive to our needs.

"Our lounge is very nearly finished, although there are some delays on our furniture deliveries and curtains due to the Covid-19 situation. We are utterly delighted with our new room, and are so pleased that we had the services of Torn & Cotton Interiors to help us with the design.

"We are hoping to use Torn & Cotton Interiors again, we've got a few more rooms to tackle yet... and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them!"
