“Virginie was a great help with the lighting for my new extension. We already had an initial plan and didn’t feel that we needed a full service. However, it is the details that make all the difference and so I asked Virginie for a consultation to review our thoughts and make some suggestions. It was a brilliant decision. Virginie was really helpful in advising us about the exact positioning of the lights, the beam widths for the spots and bulb specifications. She also added new ideas that I had not considered. The end result is fantastic, and definitely better than it would have been without Virginie’s input.”

“Splash of Light were recommended to me by a trusted friend. Virginie and I worked together on the lighting design for my own house and the results are fabulous. Virginie has a great understanding of how to define spaces, making them work in isolation and in sequence together with adjoining spaces. Our project is modest, but the results of Virginie’s work is a series of highlights and subtle variations in light which are both appropriate and exciting. The house is both animated and calming. Virginie also has a firm grasp on the technical aspects of lighting design, and is patient when explaining them.”

~ Frank Reynolds

“On the recommendation of our architect we sought the help of a lighting design company to design the lighting plan for our kitchen/diner; bathroom; utility room; and entrance hall.  We approached Virginie at a ‘Splash of Light’ and were immediately impressed with her personable and professional approach to our project.  Virginie spent time and effort to provide us with a beautiful and functional lighting specification which has greatly enhanced the final look of our home.  Virginie helped us to source light fittings, switches and even light bulbs.  She was able to help us create a lighting scheme which flowed throughout the rooms creating both working light and mood/accent lighting.  Virginie worked within our budget, on schedule, and listened to our requests whilst adding the design element we would have missed.  We are enormously grateful for Virginie’s input and would not hesitate to use her services again for any future projects we undertake.  We would also highly recommend Virginie’s work.”

“When contemplating re-wiring my flat, I knew that lighting was fundamental. The right lighting changes everything. From my first meeting with Splash of Light, the whole project was effortless. It exceeded my expectations and I felt Viriginie offered real value for money. She chose some stunning light fittings to suit the period style of the building, yet the contemporary refurbishment of the flat, well within budget. Virginie really went overboard to help me and really understood my style. I am thrilled with the results.
Thank you.”

“We carried out a full refurbishment on our family home and were introduced to Virginie. From the outset, she immersed herself completely in the project and understood exactly what we were trying to achieve. We had no concept of how complex it was to get lighting right when we embarked on the project. Virginie guided us through the whole process. She liaised extremely closely with our main contractors and produced a wonderful result. The layers, colour variance and different light fittings work perfectly. We couldn’t recommend Virginie highly enough! It goes without saying, any future projects we do will definitely involve Splash of Light. Thank you!”

~ Niels and Karen

“We were absolutely delighted with the lighting design produced for us by Virginie. The initial brief that we gave her was to produce and execute lighting designs for 6 key areas of our Victorian home.

Each area had a different lighting requirement and style, ranging from modern and practical (kitchen, landing area and dining room) to traditional and subtle (hall, study and drawing room).

We asked for many of the house’s traditional features to be accentuated (these included arches, ceiling details and original window shutters) in the design. It was not easy with many changes in ceiling height and the lighting of artwork to also be accommodated.

Not only did Virginie encompass all of our challenging requests but she added great depth of character and flexibility to the designs with lighting moods.

As a result of her work, we realised how valuable it was to have professional help with lighting and subsequently asked Virginie to help us with designs for the rest of the rooms of our house.

From start to finish, Virginie was thorough, insightful and intuitively came up with great designs and was very professional and timely throughout the whole build and installation. We cannot recommend her more highly.”

~ Laura and Robert Newry

“Virginie helped us in 2013 when we needed some inspiration on how to light a north-facing spare bedroom and a narrow hallway. Lighting should not be an after-thought but rather incorporated early on in the project-we wish we did it earlier on. Lighting really brought the rooms to life. The ideas were great and something we would have never come up with ourselves. We have started  to embark on a second, bigger project and brought in Virginie really early on, which means we can incorporate so many more ideas.”

~ Connie and Nick

“Having worked with many professionals in this industry over the years, I can honestly say that  Splash of Light and Virginie in particular were excellent!

The whole experience from the concept, through to the design phase and seeing the final results was of a very high standard. Virginie understood exactly what we were after and offered excellent ideas too. Highly recommended.”

~ David, Wimbledon
