WINNER OF BEST OF HOUZZ
2020 & 2019
“As a property investor, I saw huge value in using Rukmini. She is fantastic at her trade and was incredibly helpful in helping with my decision making on a colour scheme, seeing the pro and cons in different areas of my project and informative with what I could achieve from my investment.
I personally find it time-consuming spending hours on details such as colours etc so what Rukmini does is she allows me to focus on other things/investments while ensuring that when the works are complete and my builder applies what she suggests I have a long-standing investment that goes above and beyond and by far blows the competition out the water.
It’s good knowing the finished article will be there and she has given me huge confidence in what I want to achieve.”
“My long term returns are fantastic because I use services and professionals such as Rukmini’s to get the job done. I’ve already booked her up for the next project.“
“We absolutely loved Rukmini’s designs. She thought of things we would have never even have considered. We can’t wait to implement them!
She is ready to listen to your own ideas, and very helpful if you want to make changes or tweaks to what she’s recommended.
We’ve got young children and my husband was adamant that we needed wipeable sofas!! Rukmini was helpful and gave me advice with what to look for and tips about what to think about.
I’m sure we’ll be contacting her again in the future!“
“She’s honestly great at what she does. If you’re not sure whether to take the plunge and use an interior designer for your project, just do it, you won’t regret it!“
“I had a dilemma with my kitchen design and couldn’t quite put my ‘finger’ on it as to what was wrong, what was not ‘working’, something wasn’t right but I just didn’t know what!
So I contacted Rukmini and asked for her advice honestly thinking this would be a long shot as could she really ‘read my mind’!
What Rukmini did was short of a miracle really! Instead of diving straight into what was wrong, she asked some simple but ingenious questions about my ideas, thoughts, design concepts, the whys, and what did I want out of my kitchen and the big one what kind of person was I!
We then walked through the design visually over a phone call, and with Rukmini being well conversed with the company we were using she was fully aware of the type of design and with the questions asked had built up a picture of our personal preference. She was then able to advise how the visual pictures we had received should be changed to help us visualise the end product, asking for a few choices of finishes to help with the process of choosing the finished product.
We used this advice and after receiving a new design with additional features and 3 different finishes we able to eliminate what was wrong and what worked! The ‘thing’ we struggled to identify in the first place, so easy when you speak to an expert.”
“I would highly recommend Rukmini, she’s professional, a good listener and has a lovely persona. She will be a must-have to anyone’s project big or small.“
“Rukmini is a dream to work with. She is totally intuitive and takes time to understand you and your home.
I can’t wait to get on with the rest of the house. We have so far tackled 2 bedrooms, with a few more rooms to go!“
“She has a flair for creating beautiful spaces“
“Rukmini is just the best! We had a 30 min colour consultation.
I was very impressed and would definitely recommend her.”
“She is a pro. She was quick, efficient, she really knows what to ask you in order to find out what colours, mood and style would be the most suitable for you.”
“Rukmini is really friendly and gets fully behind a project with her exciting ideas. I am excited to put things into action and make my living room a lovely place to be”
“It’s been great working with Rukmini, she is a fabulous interior designer and her imagination of keeping the things in the right place is unbelievable.
When I first purchased my home I was perplexed that how I will be arranging things to make my home into dream home but the way how she handled my mind set up to portray into practicality can only be judged when someone will start working with her.“
“I would definitely recommend her to hire as interior designers if someone wants to make their house a dream home…”
“Rukmini has provided us with some beautiful designs for four rooms in our house. She has given us the confidence to be bold with our colours and design and well as helped us to create the ‘wow’ factor we were looking for in our home.
“Rukmini is extremely professional, approachable and creative and we can’t wait to bring her design ideas to life!”
“She transforms the area in true colour. Excellent visualisations. Easy to get on with and takes your dreams and turns them into reality.”
“a DELIGHT! Truly professional with great vision”
“Rukmini is an absolute inspiration. I have worked alongside Rukmini a few times and am always blown away by her creativity and professionalism.
Attention to detail is something I lack and it feels comforting to be around someone who has it in abundance. From the moment I saw her zest for interiors I felt confident she could handle any project and so far haven’t been proved wrong!
I found social media was a great way to get to know Rukmini’s taste and style, as I started to want the same attention to my projects as I felt in the stories she posted.
I learnt tips and started to think more creatively just watching updates before we even spoke so I would say if you are unsure check out previous work and inspirations online to understand the thought Rukmini puts in each step of the way!”
“I value the thoughtful way she seeks out signature colours and inspirational pieces”
“I have contacted Rukmini after I have seen some of her designs. I immediately liked her choices and asked her to give me some advice on how to modernize our bedroom.
I will definitely ask her to help me more.”
“She was very helpful and replied very quickly to all my questions. “
“Rukmini is a very talented interior designer. She was involved in the redecoration of my flat in Central London (about £50k project).
I’d highly recommend Rukmini Patel Interior Design.”
“She did a great job from design to project management and it was very helpful to have her involved”
“It was a pleasure to have Rukmini decorate for me. Rukmini carried out a detailed consultation and measured survey for my master bedroom which needed much re-work after moving into my new flat.
The brief I provided was high end, luxurious hotel look, in return, Rukmini provided me with high-quality floor plans and 3D pictures of my bedroom.
The furniture styles she suggested were on point with my style.
Her designs were presented in an easy to understand format, provided thorough detailing and kept within budget with the shopping list she provided. She was really easy to get hold of and kept me abreast throughout the process.”
“She showed me different furniture layout options which I wouldn’t have thought of and really helped me decide what I furniture would be right for me and the space. “
“Contacted Rukmini Patel regarding a north-facing kitchen that needs a facelift colourwise. She advised me to send photos of the kitchen at varying times during the day, then evening and finally night time.
I was also asked to photograph a sample of my wardrobe colour scheme. Delighted with the response, project still in hand.”
“She came up with a couple of colour options for the kitchen both of which were “just me” but maybe a bit bolder.”

“Our consultation was focused and Rukmini quickly created a vision which I felt comfortable with.
Her style is broad and was quickly able to turn my dull neutral flat into a place of colour and life. In the consultation, she assessed my style and colour preferences.”
