the kavanagh’s

"I approached Vogue to discuss the purchase of a new kitchen. Knowing I wanted something contemporary for my new extension I met with Sharan to outline my design intentions. I had concerns about the small space and potential loss of light into the room and got chatting with Sharan about this and what I hoped to achieve. Sharan proved to be highly knowledgable, demonstrating vast brand/trend awareness that was matched with care and consideration for overall functionality, taste and budget. Her intuition was notably impressive and she proved very adept at understanding the project and my preferences. After discussing ideas she was able to show me samples that very much suited my personal taste. A design was worked up and on my return to the showroom I was delighted to find that it instantaneously resonated with me. There was little left to do, bar place an order!"
