Tamzin is an absolute joy to work with. She has a wonderful, natural affinity with colours and finishes. I find her creative ideas and concepts incredibly inspirational. On all the projects that I have worked with Tamzin, she was attentive to the client’s brief and communicated her ideas brilliantly. She has an infectious passion for all her work which produces beautiful results. Tamzin is an incredibly organised person, who is a delight to work with and has a fantastic flair for design.

I have known Tamzin for some years now, having sold them Faircroft in Abbotts Ann and advising her on numerous occasions with regard to various works that they were planning on carrying out on the house, and the property market in general. Two years ago I also worked with Tamzin and Chris to help them sell both of their houses, Faircroft as mentioned previously and Longacre House in Palestine near Grateley. Tamzin had presented Faircroft to a very good standard as well as gained planning permission to add a 5th bedroom, bathroom and large kitchen/living area with a good grasp of what the market would like. She had also gained planning consent to dramatically extend Longacre House, which again helped enhance the overall saleability of the house.

We used Heliotrope Interior Design during the build of our traditional farmhouse in Hampshire. Tamzin’s help was invaluable in achieving our vision - she took our ideas on board, advised and added many of her own and sourced curtains, paints and wallpaper to name but a few. Tamzin was easy to work with and made the whole interior process pleasurable and stress free.

It was clear when first meeting Tamzin that she was a very focussed & driven individual. This proved so when discovering there was minimal architect's input on the redesigning of her home. Her plans that she had drawn were very accurate & her eye for detail was exceptional. Her vision & confidence were clear to see & if there was the opportunity to change something for the better then it was always taken. The end result of the project has left Tamzin with a very beautiful & functional family home. Working alongside Tamzin was an absolute pleasure & made our job as the main contractor that much easier.

CFW Architects’ Director Martyn Wiltshire worked closely on the concept and detailed design with Tamzin Newby for the extension and refurbishment of Faircroft, a listed building in the village of Abbotts Ann. The proposed extension and link building replaced an existing 20th Century single storey outbuilding and required sensitive negotiations with conservation. The internal remodelling was designed and specified by Tamzin.
