1. Colour Consultation A home visit service to propose colours for walls, woodwork, furniture & accessories which will take advantage of your home's unique look and feel. 2. Style Advice This service includes a home visit and a follow up document to outline potential furniture pieces, colours and accessories. The document will include specific colours to use on walls & woodwork, and suggest sources for furniture, fabrics and accessories with some specific ideas for shapes and styles. I usually just make one home visit for Style Advice, and then follow up with the document. 3. Design Service This service includes at least two home visits, measuring, sourcing furniture, colours and accessories and arranging for any updates for the furnishings (e.g. re-covering vintage finds or framing pictures). I will design the space around your personal style, ensuring a cohesive and practical result that you are delighted with. I will then source the new/vintage items to be used in the room and arrange for any fitted elements to be put into place. I will also arrange for any changes to be made to existing elements, and will manage the project as it moves through to completion.

6 Reviews for Sim Barker Interiors
Sim was amazing during my flat refurbishment and would be an asset on any project. My project was a relatively straightforward ex-rental flat refurbishment which I had decided to sell. Sim guided me through the entire refurb process remotely giving me specific colour palettes and suggesting accessories to buy removing what would have been hours and hours of deliberation on my part. Whilst I did not adhere to every single recommendation due to cost, the flat looked really fabulous and the first viewer bought it at the full asking price. Her knowledge of colour is a true gift and I look forward to using her expertise again.

I asked Sim for advice when I was faced with a colour qaundary in our bathroom but as she works on a minimum fee which covers four rooms, we worked together on colours for my next few projects too. I'm so glad we did! Sim has an incredible eye for colour and helped me see possibilities that I would never have thought of on my own. The consultation was exciting and informative and the colours look truly fantastic and transform the rooms we have painted so far. Can't wait to see what we come up with for the next 4 rooms...

I found Sim by googling interior designers in my local area as I was looking for help modernising the cottage my husband, toddler and I had recently moved into. After a phone call and initial meeting we hired Sim to do a full redesign of our sitting room, playroom and a colour consultation for the kitchen, hall, spare room and master bedroom. She has a lovely, warm manner, is very creative and is clearly a pro. She spent time thoroughly understanding our tastes, the function we needed from the rooms and she looked at how our existing furniture could be updated. In particular we wanted great lighting in the sitting room and she came up with some very creative suggestions that we love. We would never have achieved anything close to the final result without her. We are delighted.

Student and client.
I met Sim when I attended her 4 day interior design workshop at Bath College and as a result of her advice and guidance I have been able to dramatically alter the look and feel of my home; often by making only minor changes, such as colour combining - which Sim covered extensively during the course. Prior to the course, I had attempted to match colours and textures in a room, but somehow just could never get it right. Sim's course has therefore been one of the most valuable I have attended, due to its subsequent impact on my home environment! Since then I have called on Sim for advice, during a stressful period of rebuilding our bathroom; and thanks to Sim's knowledge and care, I have been able to design and achieve a bathroom that I truly love, and have avoided making costly mistakes. I therefore cannot recommend Sim highly enough.

Simone helped me look at exterior window colours when I was adding and replacing existing windows. I was struggling to see the wood from the trees and to know what would work best with the stone and roof colours. Simone was really helpful in describing why certain colours would work best to frame the house but also suit the look we were trying to acheive. I would highly recommend Simone for any colour consultation. She has a real flair for colour and I really trust her experience and opinion. I would have no hesitation employing Simone again, in fact I will do when we need to work on interior paint colours.

We have just built a new house and were in a turmoil about colours for each room. Simone came and gave us excellent advice , she listened and worked with us very well. I would definitely recommend her.

Commented: Colour of wallsHi there Yes, the greenish neutral on the walls works pretty well in this country kitchen. It's from a range I created for the V&A called the Classic Collection. Production on this has been paused...
