Testimonials & Press
“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.”

“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!”

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.”

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.”
