ADI took on the extensive remodelling, design and furnishing of our newly acquired Edwardian family home. The basic approach was to maintain a period exterior and to introduce a light-filled and contemporary interior sympathetic to that. Taking charge of project management and organising building work through Steve and his excellent team, ADI were able to take the architect’s plans and bring them to life in a seamless fashion.
Alex and team were good at managing costs and timing and keeping us updated. The design team tuned in perfectly to what we wanted achieve. It made a real difference to have ADI follow through execution of the design to deliver an “ADI finish” throughout.

I have worked with Alex and her team for three years now. The first project was to furnish a cavernous (8,500sq ft) but rather anonymous new-build house to make it both impressive and intimate, whilst steering well-clear of interior design clichés. I stayed very close to this project, even though I was working in the US. Throughout the work, Alex and her team were always available, imaginative, practical, constructive, and, when the occasion demanded – willing to critique. I was delighted with the result; and no-one who visits the house fails to be impressed by the creativity, the attention to detail and workmanship.
Any one of these projects represents the amalgamation of hundreds of little decisions that need to be coordinated and managed and that must coalesce into a harmonious result. The myriad of individual suppliers, trades and subcontractors are sometimes less reliable than one would ideally like. It all takes attention to detail in huge quantities. To be able to combine this attention to detail with good counsel and humour is an art, and this is the art that Alex and her team have mastered.
To alter the use and look of a single room is quite a challenge in itself.
The thought of changing an entire home can enter the realm of panic and
bewilderment. Where to start, find guidance, consolidate ideas and make the
right choices? One phone call to Alex will do it. She and her team have
flair and vision, are great problem solvers, most competent, reliable and
pleasant to work with. You will know you are in safe hands and the results
will always be fantastic. That has long been my experience with her.
I have been a client of Alexandra Dixon Interiors for over 25 years. Almost as the builder moved out, Alex and her team moved in. That is what makes her special, distinct and so much appreciated. Naturally skilled at reading what works for each person, she then calls on her extensive knowledge and unique expertise to bring to life what have been for me often vague ideas, dreams and thoughts - right down to finding that very funky tap to please and surprise my engineering husband.
We have worked with Alex and her team for many years now and she has helped
us with a number of different houses in different styles including an
Elizabethan cottage, an arts and crafts house, a contemporary but
traditional house, a ski chalet and a modern Spanish villa.
Alex is very practical and has a lot of experience in working with newbuilds
as well as refurbishments. As a result she will often spot issues that
others may not have thought of in the project and will often assist with
coming up with solutions. She is also a great sounding board for the
multitude of questions, decisions and issues that arise on a big project.
I have used Alexandra Dixon Interiors for several years, they have helped source and supply many different items of furnishings, lighting and fabrics. They are adaptable, knowledgeable and very professional.
Alex and her team have managed projects in the UK and in France for us – great ideas, friendly and efficient; we keep coming back for more advice and help even after fifteen years!
Ever since we first enlisted Alexandra Dixon Interiors to help us transform our new home, we have been delighted with the service. It is a testament to the ADI team, and how pleased we are with our finished rooms, that four years on we continue to call on them for recommendations for new projects! We can always count on ADI – and our regular consultant, Lynne Jarvis – to source and supply key furniture pieces that complement our period property, yet keep it modern enough to suit our style of family living. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ADI to our family and friends.

We used ADI to help with interior design on our rebuild project. Without their help we would never have been able to find such great items and coordinate the whole process. They are extremely organised and have fantastic ideas - they made it all very easy.
Thank you once more, could not have done it without you
Everything looks wonderful and we are delighted that our house is finally looking like a home. You have all been an absolute pleasure to work with.
Lynne & John Wood
Fantastic! I really enjoyed dealing with Alex and love the results. Alex had a great knack of understanding my taste, had great suggestions and the end result is stunning.
