Church & Rose rises to the challenge of each new project with a fresh approach; always retaining the core values of timeless design, supreme quality and meticulous attention to detail.

Typical projects include apartments and houses in London, country estates, shooting lodges in Scotland, offices and board rooms, chalets and villas or private clubs.

Vanessa Church believes that the most important part of our job is to listen and to understand what our client wants and then to deliver on time and budget.

We approach each new project with fresh enthusiasm, injecting new ideas, mixing the traditional with the contemporary and adding some quirky pieces to add interest. The end result is the creation of a wonderful space, as comfortable as it is individual, completely sympathetic to our client’s taste and requirements.

The second part of our job is to ensure that we are hugely organised, taking care of every detail so that what could otherwise be a daunting prospect for a client is hassle-free and enjoyable.

We believe there are no rules and nothing is right or wrong – it is all about how its put together, being brave occasionally – and making sure it’s fun!

All our work is by referral and much of it from clients and old friends for whom we have worked before and come back to us time and again for help with a new home or project.
