I moved into a new house while being pregnant and knew that I needed help furnishing the house, because choosing furniture and imagining space are definitely not my strong suits. I researched many North London interior designers and fell in love with Cigal Kaplan’s designs. After Cigal explained what she does and gave us a quote, we thought hard whether it was going to be worth it but decided to take the plunge. Needless to say, that plunge was probably one of the best decisions we made in the whole home buying process.
Cigal decorated and furnished our lounge and large conservatory within 2 months – which is nothing short of magic. We are absolutely in love with our space and just smile in awe every time we see it. It is incredibly beautiful but also feels like our own home. We absolutely could not have done it without her and her team’s help.
All her trade partners were reliable and helpful, she and her team were always very quick to respond to any queries via WhatsApp, and took away so many headaches for us. Cigal is also very detailed, she thinks of things we would have never thought of on our own. Cigal’s service was not cheap for us, but well worth every single penny. 10/10 would recommend her to experience her magic!! Cigal, hope to work with you again in the future to redo the whole house! 😉
When moving into a new house, we knew that we wanted a calm and warm atmosphere, somewhere to come home to after a long and busy day. Whilst we knew this was the feel we wanted to create, we were not sure how to do this effectively – and knew that it was more complicated than just buying lots of things that looked like that might fit the brief! Decorating a house was not something we could do by trial and error either! Once colours and furnishings were chosen, if they didn’t work, it would be pretty hard to change it. We both know that our skills do not lie in design and pulling a room together in a way that is coordinated and stylish is not easy – we would end up picking things that looked nice as standalone but would not necessarily work when paired with other things. We also did not have the time, energy or contacts to coordinate the logistics of such a large project (tradespeople, suppliers, quotes and much more). Enter Cigal!
She really took time to understand what we wanted, what we needed, how we lived our day to day life, what had/hadn’t worked for us before and what furniture we wanted to keep (family pieces, art etc). She then produced a range of designs and meticulously worked with the building teams to finish the job to perfection. She and the team were reliable, patient, responsive and friendly at all times. We felt comfortable with them to have open conversations and work together on this project. Cigal and her team have designed and implemented a gorgeous house for us which exceeds our expectations and is a joy to be in. 10/10 would recommend!
Highly recommend Cigal and her team.
I’ve reached out to her to help me renovate my 3 year old daughter’s bedroom, and I’m glad I did.
She is approachable, engaging and an overall joy to work with. We had a brief idea of what we wanted, but she final result was definitely impressive, especially having the challenge of being a small space.
But she delivered: quality, colours, design, everything was on point!
My daughter loves her bedroom and that is the most important thing.
I have had a brilliant experience working with Cigal Kaplan and couldn’t recommend her more. After struggling with two other decorators who spent countless hours measuring and developing expensive briefs but not getting far, I found a perfect match in Cigal. She understood my vision completely, and within six weeks I had three rooms not just designed but completely furnished.
What I enjoy most about Cigal is that she is a brilliant project manager. She is utterly organized, responds within minutes, and is encouraging but not pushy. And she is fun! She is comfortable and skilled in both luxury and High-Street brands and seamlessly incorporated my ideas while infusing the project with her own flair.
If you are looking for an enjoyable, low-stress, productive experience decorating your home then Cigal is it!
Having moved to an unfurnished apartment with our newborn, we contacted Cigal to help us create a space that we could feel comfortable in. Little could we imagine what she was able to produce. Throughout the entire process Cigal went above and beyond, using her expertise to transform the empty space into a home we are immensely proud of.
Cigal empowered us to better understand our individual needs, tastes and styling preferences and then creatively helped us bring that character into our home. She helped us source the highest quality furniture at the best prices.
We highly recommend Cigal to anyone considering using her services, she is a pleasure to work with and we can’t wait to work with her again in the future!
Old Street- Atlas Building- London
I chose Cigal and her team to design the interior of my new flat. It was an excellent choice. She immediately saw what I wanted to do with it and made some great suggestions, often (very tactfully) saving me from making poor decisions! She organised all the necessary work using very professional but friendly teams and was super-responsive – responding to my questions, points and random thoughts by return. She obviously cares deeply about her work and the satisfaction of her clients. I am very pleased with the results and have no hesitation in recommending her.
My husband and I started a big renovation in January 2020 and soon found ourselves not just in a pandemic, but also living in a building site. I knew Cigal through others and asked if she could help us; initially, it was just with curtains. Very quickly we realised just how amazing she is and we hired her to help us with everything else from wall paint colours and lighting to furniture. We had some bespoke pieces made through her and she has found us some incredible pieces of furniture and accessories. Always at hand, positive, helpful, great at finding unusual pieces of furniture. Most importantly though, she listens and takes time to understand what each client is like and what kind of home and life they have/want. We can’t recommend her enough! Our only regret is that we didn’t hire her right at the beginning of this project and if we do another job, we know to book her from the word go. Even so, Cigal has COMPLETELY transformed our place and we can’t recommend her enough!
Cigal did a great job delivering everything on time for a Central London rental flat that needed refurbishment oversight and interior design services. She is very responsive, professional and pleasant to deal with. My flat looks amazing after the refurb!
Cigal helped me to find the perfect furniture to complement what I already had when we moved to a new home in the UK. She was great to work with, professional, and prompt with great recommendations and service. I highly recommend her!
I hired Cigal to fully furnish my flat before I moved in. She has been an incredible organiser and got my place ready in just three weeks. Cigal handled the relationships with all suppliers and tradespeople while I was in another country. She has great taste, gives great advice on style and brands (awesome bedsheets!). She was as hands-on or as hands-off as I wanted on every part of the job. I can wholeheartedly recommend her services!
Cigal very kindly offered her expertise on a project that involved the refurbishment of our bar and pavilion. She was professional, a joy to work with and kept to our brief of creating a cozy interior whilst sprucing up the place and turning it into a local community hub. Cigal spearheaded the project from beginning to end and thought of innovative ways to enhance the space whilst keeping with the cricket club and industrial theme. She was beyond patient with us also gave good tips on where to source materials at the best prices. We cannot recommend Cigal enough and are already looking forward to working with her in the near future.
We were so lucky to find Cigal just before moving into our new house! First she was available at short notice. She did a very useful questionnaire to know which style worked for our family. We had less than 2 weeks to refurbish the ground floor and powder room. Cigal was extremely hard working, beautiful ideas and just lovely to work with. She has a gift for colours and chose the best paint for each room. She managed to find lovely furniture as well as integrating our existing one to make it look beautiful. Thank you! Diane
I was referred to Cigal and I am so thankful for the introduction! We clicked immediately and I was able to incorporate my preferences with Cigal’s professional suggestions and eye for ease, style and functional design. Cigal was more than helpful in coordinating all of the aspects of the project – delivery, installation, and sourcing and with her designer discount she kept us financially on track as well as offered various options in different price points. She also worked super efficiently with her time and our deadlines and was always accessible and in touch to check in. She transformed two rooms of ours that previously were overlooked and were not in a state for us to enjoy, and now the whole family is able to comfortably and happily spend time in our own home. I truly look forward to working with her again and appreciate her support, partnership and professionalism!
I hired Cigal to furnish a new property for an Airbnb rental. I gave her a very tight deadline as I already booked my first client. She delivered on time and when I walked into the place I felt I was in a hotel room. Amazing! I could not be happier and I would definitely use her again !!
Crouch End- London
I asked Cigal for help furnishing and decorating a completely unfurnished 4-bedroom house. As a busy lawyer I simply had no time to do any of it myself. Cigal took care of absolutely everything from top to bottom; no job was too small or too big and she had great ideas for every room in the house. Cigal is full of energy, hard-working and on the ball at all times – what an excellent service! The house was completely furnished inside two months. I must say I’m delighted with the outcome and would highly recommend her to anyone.
I feel so blessed to have been introduced to Cigal. I engaged her to help me with space planning and interior design for a large ground floor extension ( we have a 3 bed property in Mill Hill).
I immediately felt at ease with Cigal and really liked her approach and outlook. I was very impressed with her knowledge, keen eye and attention to detail. She managed the builders well and she was a pleasure to work with. We appreciated her sticking to deadlines and budget -and also guiding us as we outsourced various options.
I can’t recommend Cigal highly enough.The extension looks fantastic and we are thoroughly enjoying our new improved way of life!
Thank you Cigal for all your help and for making it a very enjoyable experience. I would be happy to chat to anyone who would like more information.
I recently employed Cigal to assist with the design aspects and furnishings of a complete renovation of a 5 bedroom house in Golders Green. The house had to be refurbished completely, including all new bathrooms, kitchen and all the flooring. She advised on and assisted in the choice of furnishings and fittings and worked with the team of builders, plumbers and electricians engaged in the project. I am very pleased with the results of her involvement. She was very easy to work with and I can highly recommend her services
