We have worked with Bear René on multiple projects over the past 8 years including the complete renovation of our family home, and then later our penthouse apartment in London.

Both times, Bear René took us through the entire process – from point A - Z – so to say that Sarah is an interior designer is an understatement. Being overseas, it made an enormous difference to have Bear René on the ground, managing the project and representing us – from overseeing the lengthy planning process we encountered, to taking care of the tiniest details.

It was important to us for our homes to be both functional and beautiful – clever and liveable. At first, we were hesitant that an interior design firm would apply their generic “formula” and we would end up with a home with no personality – but we quickly realised that wasn’t the case with Bear René.

They took time to understand our tastes, get to know us and then, with real expert care and originality, realised our vision – and it was a thousand times better than we could ever have imagined.

I’m always working long hours and have never had any time to put into my home. My first London home in Putney was almost bare – and so when it came to selling the property, I brought in Bear René to stage and showcase the house in its best light. I set a budget, and the investment paid off – plus I got to take everything to my new home!

I carried on working with Nicola – who is one of those people who just “gets it” – and her team at Bear René and we’re now renovating my house in South Kensington, taking a step at a time when I’m ready.

I had always felt homesick but now I’m excited to come home! A place that is sophisticated, peaceful and homely, and importantly it focuses around things that mean something to me. It is a luxury, but the care, attention and ideas that Bear René bring to creating a home that you love is priceless.
