Mark and Ruth work very well together and both share the same approach to creating finished properties, where the wishes of the client are central in realising each project, ensuring that the quality is maintained throughout whatever the scale and scope of the build and budget.

Mark also dabbles a little in writing too, he is currently writing a bi-monthly article for the Woodbridge Vanilla magazine upon their request, which so far spans from August 2017 to the present date.
Ruth Crisp – Interior Designer
Ruth has always had a passion for designing which began as a child when she painted a cast iron fireplace in her bedroom. Since owning her own homes, she has relished the interior design process and loves sourcing fabric, soft furnishings and decorative pieces to give all her interiors an individual stamp.
She has been inspired by all the home interior trends over the years like stencilling, mosaics, co-ordinating woodwork with walls and now feature walls and the revival of wallpaper. Just like in the home, trends in garden design change and she is very interested in keeping up to date with all the latest influences to create gorgeous outside spaces that complement the home.
Ruth’s taste is for contemporary living that is both functional and comfortable while giving the WOW factor to all her properties. She has an eye for a few opulent, key pieces that give her designs that all important signature look. She takes my design principles outside to provide gardens that are simple, contemporary and easy to maintain.
We have a centrally located office which is run by friendly & efficient staff Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm.
Evenings and Saturday mornings by appointment.
