I cannot recommend Zoe at Stealth Design highly enough. She has been with me throughout a very long and complicated renovation and I can honestly say that her calm yet fun disposition and fabulous advice kept me focussed on the end result and the fact that we would actually get there!

She helped me choose (and got discounts) on everything from toilets to Togos.

I originally contacted Zoe for help with the bathrooms and she did an amazing job, helping with both design ideas and with sourcing all my sanitary ware.

I soon realised what an incredible eye she has so I asked for her help with the rest of the development, in particular the colour scheme, wallpaper and lighting.

As it was a full house renovation we had a blank slate and while I had a number of ideas I was going round in circles trying to marry all the colours I liked in a coherent fashion. Step up Zoe. Very quickly she had pulled together a very cool colour wheel which allowed me to make the right decisions from top to bottom.

Lighting was another major job. We had nearly 40 lights to choose and although I had quite a few in mind, Zoe suggested some better options (damn her!) and also gave me the courage of my convictions with regard to some more unusual lights.

Another large task was sourcing curtain materials for unusually-shaped windows. I could not be happier with the results. Firstly she recommended the also fabulous Elly Allen ( http://www.ellyallen.com) to make them, then she quickly short-listed some incredible fabrics and my house is now finally complete.

Seriously could not recommend more highly.”

Zoe did an excellent job. She took my concerns and reconverted them in practical and very useful solutions, that helped me to have better decorating ideas. Zoe was very proactive and delivered her tasks in a proper time frame. She also created a colour scheme that I could use anytime, and allowed me to feel more independent and confident when making the right colour decisions.”

“Zoe spent a couple of hours with us looking at how the space can be better used in our house and providing advice on a new colour scheme for our lounge and hall/stairs. She listened to what we were looking to do and provided helpful advice and pointers as well as suggesting lots of other ways that we could make the house work better for our family. We are starting to make some of the changes she suggested and it is making such a huge difference – we really wish we’d met Zoe sooner! We would highly recommend her and will continue to use her going forward.”

Alice, East Dulwich

Zoe’s advice was extremely useful. The colour palette she created with us was a breakthrough and gave us a lot of confidence about future steps in the project. Based on our taste (and her experience) she came up with suggested colours for walls, ceiling and woodwork. We were a bit hesitant at the beginning (we always struggle to picture the end result in our minds), but we followed her advice and, eventually, the outcome was amazing. Anything else like furniture, lights and curtains came natural afterwards with just a bit of guidance. Great value for money: thanks again, Zoe!”

Rocco, Beckenham

“Zoe at Stealth Design was fantastic and really helped us be confident using colour and design for our extended lower ground kitchen/sitting room. Zoe really listens to what you want to achieve and is wonderfully practical in advising how you will use the space and also helps with budgets/working with third party suppliers and making recommendations. Zoe made a number of site visits, fitting around other suppliers, and was key in helping us think through what we needed from our kitchen and flooring providers in particular – including spending time advising on many different dark oak samples and making sure we made the effort to review on site in the right light. At the same time Zoe brings something extra – a great artistic eye, will propose new ideas and ‘something different’. Zoe’s mood board and colour charts are now helping our re-decorating plans for the rest of the house.”

“Thank you for your help – very efficient and astute advice, excellent recommendations and sourcing assistance.”


“As Ross Trustees have expanded, we needed a more flexible working solution so we asked Zoe from stealth design to help us. The brief was a clean and minimal feel – moving towards agile working and a paperless office. Zoe rejigged the layout to incorporate more desks and to rationalise storage. She sourced the new desks and storage for us and negotiated trade discounts. The office now feels fresh – and is much, much tidier !”


“In case anyone is looking for interior designer, I’d wholly recommend Zoe Murphy of Stealth Design.  When I didn’t know what to do she had brilliant ideas and was happy to guide me through it.  She taught us tips and tricks to get the best out of the space and in addition to helping with the layout she was great at suggesting ideas that I’d would have never thought of. She just made everything work and sent me the most fantastic links, guided me when I wasn’t sure what would work and was always careful that we get what we wanted.”


“Watch out Farringdon, Sundog Pictures are in our new digs ! Such an exciting moment for us. Thanks to Zoe from stealth design, our vision for our new offices has been realised and a new era of Sundog has arrived.”


“Zoe has been an invaluable source of inspiration and advice in the decoration of our home.  We met Zoe after we had already commenced building work on our house. Zoe’s knowledge of what is available at different price points really helped to short circuit some of the design decisions. As a result of Zoe’s input, we have a home which looks brilliant and is really comfortable. I’ve also become much more confident in choosing new pieces for our home as she has encouraged me to develop my own sense of style.”


“I’ve known Zoe personally for a number of years – so she was the first person I called up when I knew our business was to move offices. Zoe has helped us plan and fit out our new office just behind the Tate Modern on London’s Southbank. Her advice on everything from layout to the type of office chairs has been spot on. And she has saved us loads of money by negotiating discounts with suppliers – essential as we are a social enterprise business.”


“Zoe at Stealth Design did a fantastic job designing my bathrooms in a major renovation job: in particular with my tricky master en-suite bathroom. She very quickly intuited what I wanted and produced drawings and 3D images resulting in my ideal bathroom. She saved me masses of time and money sourcing sanitary ware, responds immediately to queries and is happy to accommodate my busy job and school run schedule. Highly recommended.”


“Zoe made some very simple suggestions to unlock some of the potential of my bakery and cafe, Christopher’s in Herne Hill. As part of a larger project to move the kitchen into the back, Zoe suggested we remove some of visual blocks in the front of the cafe – which has improved the connection between staff and customers. This has had a very positive impact. I was also impressed by her suggestion that we switch the placing of a door into the toilet from the main back room round the corner to the corridor. It’s something I wouldn’t have thought of myself but as a result of that and by removing a bulky fridge, the space at the back is a more relaxing area – and there are more seats!”


“Zoe, thank you for your help with the house – it looks amazing (at least we think so), and is somehow just as I had imagined it but wouldn’t quite have managed to achieve without you – you are amazing!”


“I am feeling immeasurably more confident going into the most daunting stage of the build with all the work you have done for us. Not just your structural ideas but now also with the design ideas, colours and layout advice but also our heating and electrical plan – our builder says hasn’t worked for someone so organised! It has saved us time and money without question so thanks again.”
