Jane has a fabulous, intriguing and completely inspiring eye for design and detail – so much so, I often find myself staring at the walls thinking, “what would Jane do”. I trust her judgment, experience and style completely – and have appreciated her help and guidance with colours, fabric and lighting – always asking the right questions and provoking the appropriate response, encouraging me to go bigger and bolder. She’s sympathetic to budgets and has an enviable source of suppliers at her fingertips. Jane’s lovely to work with – warm, graceful, imaginative – all of which are reflected in her elegant style and flair for, frankly, all things fabulous…

“Winchester has been sadly lacking in opportunities to purchase imaginative and unique home wares until the advent of Jane McIntyre’s design and eccentricities shop. Previously I would have scoured the South of England for unique items but my first stop shop is now Jane McIntyre. I never leave without purchasing something, whether it be a present for a friend (and one for me), furniture, lighting and beautiful linen bed linen, much approved of by my two border terriers! The Bella Notte linen actually seems to improve with age. In addition to the choice of items available, I have experienced Jane McIntyre to be inspirational and dedicated to providing exceptional service, however busy. The stock within the shop is forever changing and most definitely warrants a weekly visit at least. Beware though, you will not leave empty handed”.

Jane was marvellous at helping to redesign our decor. She was excellent at listening to what we wanted and then providing us with lots of options, but also her clear recommended route. We now have a house that is cosy and just what we were looking for. Would definitely recommend.
Jane has a wonderful eye for detail! I asked jane to help me avoid the ‘perfect’ studied interior look. I wanted my home to reflect my personality. Her designs for me included adding layers of colour and texture to the brief as a whole, so that the end result is that wonderfully warm and ‘lived in’ look that I asked for.
Jane McIntyre* designed the set and costumes for my play Popcorn at the Apollo Theatre in London’s West End. She did an exquisite job creating the sumptuous world of a super hip Film Director while delivering an efficient working theatrical design which served the fast moving nature of the play. She lovingly guided her creation through work shop, instillation, technical rehearsal and beyond. She was also on time and on budget (which is not as common a quality as you’d think). The play ran for eighteen months and won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy, an accolade which was helped in no small way by Jane’s design.
*Jane did this under her maiden name Clough.
I handed over the keys to my newly purchased but almost derelict house (and my cheque book!) to Jane and returned 6 months later to find a house that was the envy of the neighbourhood and money still in my bank account! It was a pleasure, I was totally involved but had none of the day to day stresses and strains.
