MEET SARAH JAYNE
I live in Weymouth with my husband Joe, our two kids and our two dogs. I studied Fashion at University and worked for a large high-street fashion brand for 8 years. When the company moved to London, I chose to stay in Dorset, a part of the world that I love passionately. Around the same time, I purchased my first property on the beautiful South Coast. I quickly realised that all of the skills I had learnt through my career in fashion were easily transferrable into the world of interiors! An eye for colour, fabrics, texture along with spatial awareness and commercial nous combined with budget management proved to be invaluable. I loved renovating my own home and am constantly tweaking and updating bits here and there, much to my husbands annoyance.
More recently, I have been involved in the renovation and project management of Upwey House, a stunning Grade 2 listed 17th Century Manor House which is let out for family holidays, group celebrations and weddings. With all of that experience behind me, I realised what my true passion was and decided to launch Revamp. And I haven’t looked back.
I wanted to create a property business that was highly accessible through the use of different packages that suit all budgets.I genuinely enjoy helping people and take great pleasure in helping their dreams become a reality. I work very hard to deliver my clients exactly what they want at great value for money. I have a tried and tested network of local tradespeople who I trust whole-heartedly and I am hard-working and a fantastic problem solver. I understand that undertaking a property design project can be stressful and my goal is to take the stress away.
If you choose to work with me be assured that I treat my clients’ home and budget as if they were my own.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY...
“Sarah-Jayne has done a fantastic job of the design of our high end home in Weymouth. We are so pleased with the result, as is everyone who has seen it. She has gone above and beyond what was required at every stage of the process, with last minute additions and decisions to be made at short notice. We would highly recommend Sarah-Jayne’s design help to make any home truly beautiful. Thank you SJ!”
Lizzie and Darren
“Sarah-Jayne has a natural ability to look at tired living spaces and breathe new life into them. She has wonderful ideas yet still follows a brief with respect and carefully considers budgetary parameters. Her network of, and rapport with, local tradesmen is invaluable meaning tasks are completed quickly and to a high standard but at a fair price. Her energy, enthusiasm and co-do attitude are admirable and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her work”.
“Sarah-Jayne is an interior design wizard. From designs and concepts to dressing and loading with super fun lists, she can do it all. They say purchasing a new home is one of the most stressful things you do in life. When that property is 10,000 miles away, the stress levels rise even further. In stepped Sarah-Jayne to help us achieve our goals and turn a functional flat into something special. Thanks to her efforts, we now possess a modern, welcoming family friendly apartment, Marina Vista, that we look forward to using as a holiday let apartment.
From the start and throughout the process, Sarah-Jayne listened to our needs and hopes and truly delivered a fantastic end product. She listened to our initial needs and budget and created a formal brief and concept. Her design ideas were excellent and we worked to source the items to furnish the apartment. Again, her suggested items really hit the mark. Along the way, Sarah-Jayne project managed all aspects of the internal fit-out including working with suppliers. She really went above and beyond in this regard. Being so far away, communication was critical to the success of the project. In this regard Sarah-Jayne was speedy and extremely clear as the project progressed.
All in all, we can’t endorse Sarah-Jayne highly enough.”
Matt and Avegail Pitman
“We asked Sarah-Jayne at Revamp to redesign a lounge in our 18th century cottage. This was a difficult area to get right, with a lack of natural light. From the start Sarah-Jayne came up with some great practical solutions together with a simply stunning design that has transformed the whole room, with a great blend of modern and traditional design, working where needed with existing furnishings and artwork. The end result far exceeds the brief given and within budget. Throughout the process Sarah-Jayne was incredibly helpful, enthusiastic and passionate and brought in good quality local expertise as needed. We really can not recommend Sarah-Jayne highly enough – Thank-you”
Kate and Julian
“I have called on Sarah-Jaynes’s expertise and creative eye many times over the last few years. We have been going through our house room by room and she has provided me with such a detailed vision from the very first meeting. Each time Sarah-Jayne has created vision boards for us and I have been blown away with how unique her ideas are, whilst also keeping our family identity integral to the overall design. Sarah-Jayne has the knack for finding the things you like within your budget. Having her in your home is a privilege – every house needs a Sarah-Jayne to make it a home and one that you will love to be in”.
