Lisa was great to work with, very collaborative and helpful. I changed my mind on a colour once it was on the wall and she guided me through the decision making process to choose a new one quickly. We were away for a few days when she was painting and she very kindly fed and checked on our elderly cat. I felt very comfortable leaving her in our house. Her quote and timings estimates were accurate, she left each room clean and tidy at the end of each day and she was good company - happy to have a chat while she worked or to be left to get on with the job!” M Murray, Knowl Hill July 2019
We found Lisa online when we knew that we wanted to make some big changes in our home, but just didn’t know where to start. With 2 small children, life (and our house!) had become a bit chaotic, we had too much stuff and no order for it all. It had also been years since we’d done any decorating, and everything had started to look dated and worn. We knew we needed to make changes when we started to dread inviting people over! Lisa came to see us, and immediately put us at ease. Since then she has achieved a huge amount in our house – from rearranging the kids’ bedrooms to create space they can actually use, to completely redecorating our lounge. We now come home after a busy day at work, step into our beautifully decorated lounge and can instantly relax. It’s given us a lot of pride back in our house, and we are looking forward to showing it off at every opportunity! Lisa flexibility in tasks that they will take on means that they can do everything from start to finish – from coming up with the ideas as to how things could look or be organised, through to buying everything and even dealing with putting flat pack furniture together! For a busy family, Lisa and has achieved what we would never have managed by ourselves. Ever cheerful and super-efficient, she is becoming something of a regular fixture in our house!" Sam Warren 2018 through to 2021
"I had wanted to decorate the whole apartment for a couple of years and worried about the upheaval of doing it all at once and trying to work from home and manage all the possible disruption - well what a breeze it has been. Lisa was recommended to me as a professional and she has exceeded all my expectations. Unbelievably expert, gives great advice, so tidy and no disruption. I literally at times did not know she was here. Her work station and tidiness are worthy of photos! More importantly the standard of work is excellent. Eye for detail and a polished finish. Makes fantastic suggestions. A lovely person to have around your home. I have actually missed having her around since she left. A true professional." Sian Thomas - May, 2021.
"We initially put off redecorating our house, for two reasons; the chaos it would bring to our family life and because we were just too busy to really think about what we wanted and how to go about it. Lisa changed all that and has made the process as seamless as possible, with fantastic results! Not only did she give us lots of great and practical ideas for room decoration, but she made it really easy for us, breaking the work into manageable chunks and she didn’t even mind the kids getting in the way! My 7 year old daughter said having her around has been the highlight of 2020 and we feel the same as we cannot believe the difference she has made to our home. She is also great at passing on suppliers from her trusted contacts so we had immediate access to other necessary professionals required. We highly recommend her work – and having her around your home/life!" Josie Jacobs Jan 2021
"Working with Lisa on a complete head-to-toe decoration and declutter of our hectic home was an utter delight. After a few years of raising small children, running my own business, and illness, we were in a bit of a pickle! I knew I was in the right hands from the moment I met Lisa. She is the perfect balance of warmth, creativity and methodical efficiency. She first helped declutter our 'rooms of doom' with great speed and competence. She then worked with the whole family, including two eager children, to make the home work for us more practically, and also redecorate it to reflect us more as a family. She has an amazing flair for colour and ideas, and her visions are always put to you gently but confidently and professionally. She works around you and is very respectful of what is going on in your life - she even took my shopping delivery in when it came early one day! The results are that each and everyone of us are blissfully happy in our redesigned home, and we are using all the rooms once more. All of us, including Willow the dog, miss her now she is gone! We would recommend her 100% " Liz Smale June 2020/July 2021
I have nothing but good things to say about Lisa (and Chau). It took us two years after moving into our house to realise we were not going to "get around" to re-decorating ourselves... I contacted Lisa and she made time (on a Sunday) to pop over, discuss what we wanted and then speedily sent us a professional and fair quote. Lisa did an absolutely fantastic job and we quickly asked her back to cover another area of the house. She was thorough, efficient and very neat and it was an added bonus that she worked with minimal disruption to our routine. On top of doing great work Lisa is also incredibly friendly and quick to respond to queries via email/text. I think our cat Maurice was particularly impressed the day she noticed we had forgotten to feed him and kindly rectified our mistake! Oonagh Webster May 2021
Do you have an ever growing ‘to do’ list of those jobs you never get round to – boiler service, carpet cleaning, repairs, guttering, freezer defrost, oven clean ……… and as the list grows your stress increases !! I found myself in just that position and Lisa has stepped in and turned that around. We have the ‘Wunderlist’ App to track items and brief email chats if any queries. Life is stressful and I can’t begin to express what a difference Lisa has made – thank you !! Samantha Gault 2019 2020
"I am so pleased to have found Lisa - what a star !! My home was a relatively plain and dull canvas but Lisa has truly worked her magic. I really appreciate that we have jointly brainstormed ideas, Lisa has spent the time to understand what l like and provided great suggestons concerning paint and wallpaper options. It is a joy to come home in the evening and see the ideas come to life. In addition, Lisa has sourced great accessories. I have been so pleased that l have asked Lisa to decorate the whole house much to the joy of my rather old and grumpy dog who adores Lisa - thank you" Samantha Gault 2019
"Lisa has decorated our living room and its wooden, glass panelled sliding door, and she has done an amazing job! Very easy and friendly communication, very reliable and time-efficient, and her attention to detail was superb. Lisa is also a lovely person to work with! Thank you, Lisa!" Lucie Vassiliou 2019
"Lisa has revolutionised my house. Her work rate is immense and what would have taken me weeks of procrastination she achieved in a couple of days. I am a working single mother and time is not on my side. She is warm, professional and doesn’t judge. She understands that time is an issue and gets to the things you would love to do yourself; if you had the time! She comes up with creative storage solutions and understand when there are things you “simply can’t throw! Or redistribute.” She is able to take stuff away to charity and or the dump and can research if you need something . She was able to work whilst I was at work and then asked me to decision make on things by text or in person which was amazing I couldn’t think of anyone better to help me get things in control and made me feel so much better that things were getting organised. Lisa you are a total star .. thank you." Katharine Campbell
I am so happy to have found Lisa (and Chau) when I responded to her advertisement in the Parish magazine. She is a breath of fresh air and a true professional who works to a high standard. Having not had any decorating done for 10 years, partly because I couldn't face the upheaval, I needn't have worried. I've never had decorating done with so little mess! Lisa helped me transform my lounge and I am thrilled with the results. She also decorated my hall and kitchen and will be returning in January to decorate 3 more rooms. I would recommend Lisa without any hesitation. She is a gem! Margie Tucker 2018
"I can thoroughly recommend Lisa - she’s versatile, efficient, professional and a breath of fresh air. She’s now in charge of my To Do List and I’m looking forward to her next visit!" Sally Bolton 2019/20/21
"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Lisa on the complete overhaul and re-decoration of my spare bedroom. She passionately enjoys her job and that enthusiasm was contagious. Her input was very helpful but never over-powering - she is very client focussed. I felt very comfortable having her and Chau in my house - whether I was there or not. I plan to use Lisa's services in the future and I can highly recommend her." Alison Rusted 2018,through to 21
Lisa is smart and efficient a very nice person you feel readily comfortable with. We have so far used her services to de-clutter our cupboards in the kitchen and hallway. We've also gained an entire room back which we were previously using solely for storage. Her valuable help is indeed contributing to our 'Happy Home Living' just as her company name implies! We look forward to extending her valuable input to the rest of the house. Highly recommended! Claire Mcgee 2018 - 2021
Lisa came recommended by next door.com. She did a fantastic job in decorating my house and gently suggested colour options without being pushy. She combined attention to detail with practicality and transformed my house into a bright and warm home that would appeal to all tastes if I decided to put my house on the market. Lisa is totally trustworthy and I felt completely comfortable leaving her in my house whilst I was away. I'd definitely use Lisa again if I needed a decorator and recommend her very highly.

Anne Jones Lisa (assisted sometimes by Chau) have made a great job of painting our hall, landing and stairs. Not an easy job as we are at home for most of the time and it is a major traffic area in any one's home, so we definitely wanted someone who could work around us with about being intrusive. We also appreciated someone who could work tidily and systematically with proper estimates and reliability. Also there a lot of people around who will prefer to have a woman in their home. We are now looking forward to our next job.
Shaheen Azam I had my whole flat decorated and I am very happy with the outcome. Having a female painter/ decorator is a different experience than a male. She is reliable & friendly. Also her partner Chau helped who is is vey nice.
All accessories for furnishings were bought under budget and fitted in with my new decor perfectly. I definitely would recommend Lisa to all my family & friends I spend all my time at home now it's feels so cosy & comfy exactly how I wanted it.
What can I say... Lisa is not only an amazing person but her skills as a painter and decorator are amazing also! She is a perfectionist and makes sure that each area is perfectly decorated, especially with attention to detail around the tricky edges (windows, window boards, doors etc..) and she goes around sanding off all the bumps and fills in the holes with precision.
Lisa likes to take her time to make sure that the painting/decorating is done to a high standard and she is a lovely person to have in your home: very approachable with a 'can do' attitude and most importantly, trustworthy.
We've been using Lisa and Chau for just over a year now, believe me there has been some hard and hideous jobs: they have been assisting us in our own major property refurbishing project and they are always up for a challenge!
I highly recommend her!... So what are you waiting for?
Gaby Archondakis Lisa has transformed my house from a chaotic building site to a fresh beautiful home. She's painted the house from top to bottom and has had to contend with multiple contractors and sometimes complicated logistics. Her attention to detail is evident everywhere and I'm thrilled with the results.
Lisa has patched, sanded, painted, supervised contractors and taken deliveries for me. Highly recommended.
Linda Kelly Decorating Excellent and meticulous work by Lisa. Worked without interruption for hours without taking breaks. She is extremely conscientious and leaves everything orderly. Lisa has completed three different decorating jobs for me. And I have booked her for the next room already! Highly recommended. As an extra, her partner, Chau, is a skilled handyman. Together they are a winning team.
Marianne Mays Lisa recently decorated my downstairs toilet. She was meticulous and we are very pleased with the result. I am so pleased that I have discovered that she enjoys this work. Lisa worked so much harder than any other decorator we have had and I have lined her up for my next decorating job. Lisa and Chau also took on the challenging task of cleaning the inside of the conservatory. I shudder to think of the number of spiders and dead flies that dropped out from behind the blinds covering the ceiling! I would definitely recommend her for any job that she is agrees to do because I am sure she will complete it to the high standards she sets herself.
Joan Vass I have known Lisa for many years but am now happy that she is available to take on some of the tasks now beyond me. She happily painted the garden fences and the summerhouse - coming up with some helpful suggestions as she did. Then she painted doors inside the kitchen restoring them to a gleaming white finish. She understands the value of preparation and the need to use good quality materials. Having Chau to take on some small but significant jobs for me was an added bonus. I shall certainly take advantage of her availability in the future.
Lisa and Chau helped me to knock down my "To-Do" list. All of the work was to a high standard, and I am exceptionally pleased with the amazing job they did in making my bathroom look like new again. They took onboard all the logistics of the job and seemed to know exactly what I wanted.
It really helps me to focus on work knowing that I have the jobs at home taken care of. The refreshing decorating in the lounge, office and bathrooms make them look like new!
A little bit of everything
Thank goodness I replied to Lisa's notification on street life! She has taken on the jobs that that never seem to get done, painting and organising an under stairs cupboard, giving a deep clean to my kitchen, and doing a very efficient and thorough clean of my sons house. She is going to help me with a project in the new year to sort out my many family photographs over the years. And I have much more on my list! Lisa is a real asset to our home and makes for 'Happy Home Living'!
I'm a full time working Mum and finding Lisa has been a bit like finding my Fairy Godmother! She has transformed our neglected cottage by powering through all the jobs that have been on my to do list for many months/years, taking on a variety of tasks that have made a huge difference to our 'happier home living'. From re-hanging curtains to cleaning and organising a large larder cupboard, Lisa is efficient and resourceful and always thinks around a task sharing plenty of her own ideas to achieve an even better end result. Her creative eye brings fresh thinking to projects such as hanging picture walls (she has now done two for us!) and was most evident in transforming our garden. After many hours of her hard graft clearing waste and subsequent trips to the dump, Lisa had the vision to bring the garden back to it's former glory and has done an amazing job of sourcing plants and transforming raised beds, pots, baskets and other areas. Chau's fantastic jet cleaning skills finished the job and we are very grateful to both of them. I'm not exaggerating when I say it has put a whole new perspective on my day when I draw up the kitchen blind in the morning! I would not hesitate for a moment in recommending Lisa who has not only made a huge impact on our home but has also been a pleasure to work with and have around over the last few months.
I feel blessed that I found Lisa and so glad that I responded to her local advertisement. She has undertaken a multitude of tasks for me around the garden and she is a delight to have around. She is a hard worker, extremely efficient and always does an excellent job. She keeps my garden weed free, does a lovely job planting and also trims the hedges (which is no mean feat). Lisa has also done quite a few painting jobs for me in the garden. There is never any mess and she always achieves a lovely finish. She is quick too. I truly cannot recommend Lisa more highly.
Lisa has provided me with Administrative Support during a period of significant change in my life including moving house. I have found her to be reliable, efficient and trustworthy. She has completed activities in half the time or less that it would have taken me to do and has been a lot more thorough in the process. Lisa has also dealt with some confidential matters and I would have no hesitation in engaging her services again in the future.
