Another small job but wow what a magnificent result!

We have friends from America coming to stay and the spare room was looking tired and not very welcoming. Having had Sharleen do other small decorating jobs, I thought she would have the answer to a bedroom that needed freshening up but not wanting to spend a fortune.

Sharleen suggested fitted blinds for the windows that overlook the city. It was a balance between blocking light from a street light for sleeping and retaining the view at other times. For the other window she suggested the most stunning drapes in perfect colours to enhance what was already in the room. Again a combination I would never have thought of. The last additions were two bedside lamps and a small table to sit beside the existing antique chair.

As a returning customer I can highly recommend Sharleen for any of your interior decorating needs from small jobs to large.

“Sharleen from Decorate26 has done a magnificent job advising and sourcing cushions and dining chairs. This may sound like a small job but one that I have been putting off for so long. It was lovely to have the cushions there to see. The colours are great and totally different to what I imagined might look good. They fit the room and have made it both more comfortable and stylish.

The second small job that other companies might consider not worth their time was the replacement of the dining chairs. Our lovely antique fruit wood chairs are not quite so comfortable for aging and thinning bottoms. I had in mind antique chairs with padded seats and was not considering anything else until Sharleen arrived with a very simple, comfortable and stylish modern chair for us to look at. The result is beautiful and comfortable chairs gracing our lovely kauri table.

Sharleen we have enjoyed your vision, ideas, skill and confidence to move us out of our comfort zone but to leave us feeling totally in control and excited with the result.”

We’re very grateful to Shar for her advice, patience and calm approach in making sure we found the furnishings we wanted for our new apartment. What could have been a glitch (caused by someone else) was instantly whisked away by Shar and resolved without fuss or any need for concern or effort on our part. And we have a daily reminder of her wonderful work and good taste each time we open and close our beautiful drapes.”

“I have been working with Sharleen from Decorate26 to help me rejuvenate my lounge, dining and hallways, with plans for other areas of the house later in the year. I can thoroughly recommend working with Sharleen. She has been very understanding of my requirements, quick with feedback, designs, thoughts and options, and with her follow through. She has also been mindful of my budgets and has worked to create a fantastic look while being considerate of the costs. I am very happy with our work to date, and would recommend her highly to anyone looking for an interior decorator.”

“We had been renovating for almost a year when we hired Sharleen Hucker from Decorate26 as our interior designer. Sharleen focused us on what we wanted to achieve (instead of getting ourselves distracted by building dramas!) and made the renovation process enjoyable again. We now have a beautiful, fun and functional home for our young family to grow up in. I am very happy to recommend Sharleen to anyone looking for an interior designer to bring enthusiasm, design “know how” and an eye for beautiful details to their home.”
