Testimonials


See what our clients are saying about our services.

"Tristram Design and Build Ltd has been involved with our asset management firm for a good few years.
We have used them on various projects and continue to do so. Recently, they worked on a large 3 bedroom mews houses, split into basement, ground and first floor. All in all, they have left their bespoke signature and our clients recognise us with this specific style that Tristram Design and Build Ltd has stamped on this development.
Their work is always been superior, provides value for money and driven by shear passion for design and aesthetics. Specially, with regards to the basement which was a challenge to squeeze a small media room, a gym, and power shower and sauna. They have managed the space brilliantly and the decor is simply amazing.
They are very flexible and hands on to work with, which is something we value in our contractors' services. This project lasted almost 2 years from excavation to final furnishings and during this time their were several design and development issues arises which they have handled very well.
Their detail to attention is second to none and they always surprise us with new concepts and design. The quote they submitted was very economical considering the level of detailed and time required to complete the project. Most of our projects are high value residential and based in and around London's Knightsbridge area. 
We thank them for their services and commitment to high standards."
 
Alyson has worked on a number of projects in our home and I cannot fault her taste or service. She matches the brief fully, really understands our taste, but always brings something to the table that we would never have thought of alone. Wouldn’t do any further redecoration or renovation without bringing Alyson in first!
— Miranda Holder (Style and Fashion editor, International Excellence Magazine)
Alyson and her team did a fantastic job of transforming our living space using a combination of classic pieces and pops of colour. Alyson can take you through everything from floor options to lighting, furniture and accessories, nothing is too much to ask! And it was all done on time and on budget.
— Dr Sarah Burnett-Moore
 
For 15 years I have been working with Alyson on a number of high-end projects as a contemporary artist.
Alyson has always been very professional, hard-working and conscientious . The attention to detail is impressive and I am certainly made to work hard as a supplier as I know her priority is perfection for her client.
Initially I had an Art Gallery in Battersea and we had neighbouring businesses and have continued to work well together ever since. I would definitely recommend Tristram Design.
— Nigel Kingston, Just Originals
Alyson oversaw the refurbishment for sale of our Streatham house, with us living in Australia. Alyson and her team did a terrific job, overcoming issues at the planning stage through dealing with a solicitor, through to providing an excellent “showing” of the property in its completed state. We sold it at a higher profit margin than we otherwise would have, principally due to Alyson’s drive and professionalism.
— Michael Wood, Founder PI Direct
I have worked with Alyson and her fantastic team, in many capacities over the years which has led to my ongoing admiration not only for her flare, incredible vision and creativity, but my total confidence in their ability to deliver above and beyond expectations time and time again. For example, after a panic phone call, they got our client out of a tight spot at RHS Chelsea Flower Show by delivering a fantastic display solution at incredibly short notice, with a very tight budget. Alyson herself even rolled up her sleeves to help us with the styling. I am also always extremely glad to have their extensive knowledge on tap to steer us and our clients through the minefield of legalities involved in property development and avoid all the pitfalls of project management. I know I can let Tristram Design just get on with it, safe in the knowledge that it will not only be a hassle free experience, but my clients will be impressed, which makes me a happy client too!
— Claire Hart, MD GrassrootsPR Ltd
I have seen a number of Alyson’s projects from conception to fruition and have always been highly impressed by her creativity and exceptional eye for detail. She is a consummate professional, going the extra mile to ensure everything is perfectly placed and presented. And the results are always elegant and skillful whilst retaining an instantly welcoming and comforting appeal. I always look forward to working with Alyson as I know her projects are always imaginative and exciting.

Alyson helped me with my salon electrical work. I had employed an electrician who let me down and Alyson’s company stepped in to help by providing a great electrician to finish off all the lighting installation. The guy she sent was fast, efficient and the price they charged was so good, which really helped me with my planned budget. You certainly can rely on Tristram Design & Build to sort out your electrical work with a very reliable team of guys.
— Antonio De Rose, Metamorphosis Hair Salon
We were recommended to Tristram Design. It was a great meeting as we chose to work closely with Alyson herself to come up with the look that we personally want for our properties. We are very passionate about our refurbishments and create a very high standard of finished home. The furniture placed by Tristram Design has enhanced our up-market look even further.
— Smero and Nikolas, Property Development Team, London/Greece
Using Tristram Design definitely sold my newly refurbished investment flat. It had been on themarket for 3months with no offers. I was then told by an estate agent to use Tristram Design. Within 2 weeks, Mish-Mash had the flat looking like an amazing show home. A week later, it was under offer at over asking price! Amazing. The fee for the show home design was excellent too!
— Neil Gordon, Private Developer
I have been a very regular customer of Alyson’s for many years. She has helped source some wonderful furniture for a number of my properties including a ski chalet in the French Alps and a boutique hotel in the Kings Road, Chelsea. Two very different projects but Alyson used her design skill and and contacts in the furniture trade to bring both projects together. Thank you Alyson you are a star!
— Gill Ross, Hotel & Restaurant Owner
 
I met Alyson, the owner of Tristram Design & Build, through one of our regular private property developers, at the launch of the sale of one of his properties that had been designed by her. I was so impressed with the care and the thought and the look that her company had provided that we have taken great delight in recommending Tristram Design & Build to a variety of our clients who have gone on to use their services with great success.
