What our clients say…
“Georgina was excellent at managing the project right through from the initial designs to overseeing the builders. She listened to our thoughts on the type of home we wanted, took them on board and came back with designs. After lots of face to face sessions, where she continually provided samples of fabrics and paints, most decisions were made. Georgina helped us choose a builder which turned out to be very professional and oversaw all the works, chasing when required. I would recommend Georgina to others.”
“Georgina has been fantastic. She has created a lovely family home for us. She was full of wonderful ideas, thoughtful and listened so well. She understood our style really well and then challenged us a little so that we have some lovely unique features that we would never have designed ourselves.
She designed and then project managed the interior design for us. She also worked around two busy people – no mean feat! I would recommend her for any project, no matter how big or small.”
“We are delighted with the way Georgina transformed our town house, both from a design and a project management point of view. The first time we met we were impressed that Georgina was much more concerned with finding out what we wanted rather than talking about herself. We wanted an overall colour scheme for the whole house, and the scope included decorating and carports/flooring/tiling throughout, a new bathroom, a new kitchen and some furniture and joinery.
She then came up with her ideas for an overall concept and for some features in the main rooms, and we were delighted – they were very much in tune with what we wanted. At all stages she sought our agreement and let us choose between options she found for us.
She then managed the project very effectively: getting quotes from contractors she trusted, letting us choose them, and then managing them. In fact we were able to move out for five of the eight weeks, makings it easier for us and the workers, and Georgina oversaw the work. She kept us updated with item by item costs on an amazing spreadsheet.
In the end it was done to a high standard and we are very pleased. Georgina was a joy to work with, with a good sense of humour.”
“I have worked with Georgina on two separate and extensive projects in my home and each time it has been a pleasure. On each occasion Georgina has appeared to effortlessly understand my ideas, however vague and has been able to help me translate them into comfortable, inviting and stylish spaces which my whole family now enjoy. She always has plenty of fantastic ideas to help get the most out of a room and is very knowledgeable about the market so is able to help achieve a “look” whilst staying within budget.
Tapping in to Georgina’s expertise has saved me an enormous amount of time searching for the perfect tile or fabric as well has helping me find the most cost effective way of finishing my home. Georgina is so friendly and approachable that I have always genuinely enjoyed my meetings with her and I cannot recommend her highly enough.”
“Georgina is approachable, flexes against your budget requirements and is the consummate professional in all aspects of client engagement and execution. We have used her for multiple projects with and without her project management and sourcing options. Her contractors are first rate and we have no hesitation recommending her to others.”
Gareth & Andrea Williams
“We have never worked with an interior designer before, but we were delighted by the outcome and the experience of working with Georgina. What really impressed us was the way that Georgina listened, probed and gently lead us in the many design decisions we needed to make. It didn’t feel like she was imposing her ideas on us, but she guided us with her expertise to what we really wanted. The outcome was beyond our expectations.”
“I’d been scratching my head for months trying to think how to best update and improve our living space. Georgina came in and really got me thinking about how we used our living areas and how we might change the interior to fit in with our busy lives and two energetic kids. Designs were quickly agreed and four months later we have a fantastic new kitchen and dining room and a house that is so much more usable and sociable. The place has been transformed and we couldn’t be happier.”
Dave Jenkins, West Sussex
“Georgina was a real asset when planning our kitchen/family room extension. She was always charming and tolerant. As well as interpreting my personal requirements into the kitchen design,
she gave lots of good advice on many of the other decisions involved in designing a large room from scratch. The new kitchen has turned out to be a major success and much envied!”
Sharie Fetzer, Foxfield House
“Approachable and flexible…..it was re-assuring to have gentle guidance and expertise that helped us develop ideas and plan for the bathroom we wanted”
Jean & Vic Craggs, Brighton
“From my perspective I thought your assistance was invaluable and I very much appreciated the design input. Given that I commute to London and travel abroad with work on a regular basis your project management was instrumental to the whole process.”
Johnathan Boyfield, Brighton
“With her vision and knowledge, Georgina managed to transform what was a small, dark and uninviting kitchen into a light, airy room which has now become the focal point of the house. Georgina maximised the space available with clever design and sourced quality units, doors and materials at affordable prices. She has a flexible approach and will work with you to incorporate any ideas and suggestions you may have.”
Henry Smith, Park View, Hove
“After several months of frustration with bathroom supply companies, tilers and plumbers either not bothering to respond to my enquiries or being too busy to quote, I contacted Georgina Gibson Interior Design who provided me with an excellent and timely service.
As well as making some innovative suggestions on the bathroom design, materials and colour schemes, Georgina sourced the suppliers,
the tradesmen to carry out the work, project managed the day to day progress, and completed the assignment on time and exactly on budget.
I could not fault the quality of work undertaken, and after a valuation from my local estate agent, was delighted to learn that the new bathroom and toilet had added considerable value to my property”
Roger Felstead, Mayfield
“Georgina was one of 3 interior designers we gave a brief to for The Implant Centre, a vast project to build one of the UK’s premiere dental practices. Her ideas and vision blew the others out of the water and having completed this project the results are obvious having now won multiple industry awards for best new practice, most attractive practice, best interior design Award in the south of England and nationally…..
She is great to work with, utterly reliable and makes the whole process easy to navigate. She worked with the architect and builders throughout saving us a huge amount of time and delivering a spectacular result. Her fees are very reasonable and she was able to source products the for all aspects that actually saved us money.
Georgina listens to views and ideas and helps adapt these to a design that works, and one that will stand the test of time. We have been so impressed that we continue to use her for other projects and now have asked for help with interior design at our own home.”
Guy Barwell, The Implant Centre
“Georgina helped me completely redecorate and refurbish my 17th century Sussex farmhouse. I had a idea in my head of what i wanted but I had neither the time or the experience to bring it to life. Not only did Georgina she help me realise this vision, she also improved it in every area. Consequently I have a house that’s been interior designed to the very highest standard but also feels like my home. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”
Ben Priest, West Sussex
“I would like to thank you for your excellent work and performance with respect to the interior design and project management of our new Woking based offices.”
Matthew Cole, FMC Technologies
“Georgina took a jumble of ideas and transformed them into a design that has been both practical and attractive, greatly adding to the overall customer experience on the Pier. Her design skills are matched by her ability to make something actually work..often a rarity!”
Anne Martin, Brighton Pier
“Having worked with Georgina on many projects over the past six or so years, I have found her input to be very useful. She develops good relationships with our mutual clients and through her discussing issues and working out the design with them in advance, pre-empts problems and reduces demands on my time. Her involvement certainly helps the jobs run efficiently and the clients are always very pleased with the results.”
Gary Miller, GM Building Services Ltd.
“What I like about Georgina is that she listens to your ideas without imposing her own, interprets them creatively and goes with your choices even if they might not have been her preferred way. She is hard-working and efficient, with a great network of craftsmen at her beck and call.
There is no side to her and she takes no nonsense from builders! She is a can-do person, not a fluffy designer, but she has a great eye and excellent taste.”
“Great vision for the project, but more importantly able to guide us on a peaceful path to achieving it. Could not recommend more strongly!”
Georgina designed exciting features for an upmarket house we worked on together in Sevenoaks, she had a good eye for colour and textures, which brightened and embellished the spaces we had designed.

We chose to work with Georgina on the strength of her web page and one short telephone conversation. I am pleased to say that the excellent first impressions were fully realised through the project, a complete transformation of the inside of our 4 bedroom property. Georgina did the internal design of the whole house which included the whole kitchen and bathroom, all flooring, colouring and furnishings and fittings. In addition Georgina project managed the work, preparing the tender documents, co-ordinating the main contractor and ensuring a high quality finish. Overall we are more than pleased with the outcome, the house is exactly how we might have dreamt. Georgina is friendly, professional and confident with a great attention to detail, she would always listen and adapt the project to make it feel as if we were in the driving seat. Highly recommended.
“I am really grateful for the wonderful kitchen you have provided for us. You were able to put into function all of the ideas that I had in mind and came up with a fantastic design. The true test was over the Christmas period when we entertained with dinner parties on Christmas day and over New Year and it was a joy to have the kitchen so well laid-out.
Everyone enthused about our new space. The Wow factor certainly has been created and both adults and children alike love the breakfast bar and the open design enhancing the view of the garden. The tiles stools and radiators you sourced for us were the icing on the cake. Thank you for being so understanding of my demanding requests”
Vanessa Greenaway, Hove
“We have been delighted with the professional design help that Georgina has provided with various aspects of our house renovation, including new bathrooms, a kitchen and living spaces. She made the whole experience much less stressful than it would have been, providing innovative design ideas, recommending colour schemes, thinking through the small details that we would have overlooked and project managing the overall process.
As an example, I was particularly impressed when we discussed a bathroom idea based on a photograph from a book, which included a marble sink unit. She was able to use her contacts and sources to replicate exactly what we had discussed, where I would not have known where to start. I would definitely use Georgina for future projects and am very happy to recommend her company for large and small design projects.”
Rachel & Joe, Royal Crescent, Brighton
“Although I had quite a bit of experience of doing up houses, this time around I knew that I just didn’t have the time that is necessary to look for curtain fabrics, paint colours and upholstery fabrics. It really does take time to see what is around and to work out combinations. Because of my experience I have a strong sense of what I like and I was slightly sceptical of what use I would have for an interior designer. However, Georgina proved to be extremely useful. This may be because she doesn’t really fit my image of an interior designer.
She is normal and down to earth but with a very good eye for colour and style. Georgina was able to understand exactly what sort of look I was after and was able to source items that she knew I would like. She also is conscious of budget and never tries to push you towards the more expensive option – which is what I had feared of an interior designer. She really provided two roles for me – firstly as a source of possible fabric choices and secondly as a sounding board for my ideas. In both roles, she was excellent and I couldn’t have done the project without her.”
Elaine, Withdean Road, Brighton
“Thank you for making it all so much fun!”
