Client Testimonials

We have been fortunate to work with several epic clients and here is what some of them have to say about us.


What I love about working with Sam and Nina is that they are not afraid to provide challenging solutions to a brief - ideas that meet the brief but but also lift the soul, and bring a smile to your face. Sam and Nina are very positive people, bringing energy, a keen eye for interior design and good listening skills too. They are not afraid to work with clients ideas long as they are good ones!

Sam and Nina listened clearly to our brief and offered us options on layouts, furnishings, colour palettes and finishes that allowed us to create a scheme that felt true to the Jones&Payne ethos with an urban edge. Sam and Nina worked to a tight commercial timeline and were a pleasure throughout. I continue to recommend their services to others!

First Sam and Nina spent time to understand us and our practical needs as a family. Then they coupled this with the schemes and decor styles I had been collecting ( ripping out of magazines) over the years to produce a design solution we were very happy with ( even the kids liked it). They introduced us to credible professionals in their field and helped us to navigate everything from architects to builders. I felt like we got the full service and trust their judgement. I would have no hesitation in recommending Maklin&Macrae to others. Especially those who have ideas in their head and want to transform a space yet need someone to listen to them and put their imagination on paper....they are great at it.

I have worked with M&M on a number of projects to completely transform the look of my home. They have always been fun to work with, professional, creative and sensitive to our desires and circumstances. I love the end result and we could not have done it ourselves without their help. Nina and Sam are flexible in their approach and adapt to our changing situation. I would wholeheartedly recommend Nina's & Sam's services to anyone looking to make their home reflect their own style and personality with a bit of a "wow" thrown in!

I hired M&M to remodel my house, working with my contractor. Nina & Sam were always professional and diligent from start to finish. They were incredibly easy to deal with, and worked to the budget that we agree at the outset. I was impressed with M&M's work and would have no hesitation in hiring them again.

We were living abroad when planning our house refurbishment and were fairly naive to what this kind of project entailed. Starting with Skyped meetings, Nina & Sam were very quickly able to get onto my wavelength while offering a wonderfully diverse number of options for each room. Their presentation on the project gave us much needed clarity on the logistics involved in breaking down room by room designs. Beyond their design talents, we found M&M to be outstanding project managers (essential when dealing with a useless team of builders!) and have an equally essential contacts book.
