“I work mainly in London but also have commissions in Paris, Alps and Caribbean – anywhere a client has a property we will work. It often occurs that one project is completed successfully and then we move on to do additional properties – you are only as good as your last job is our motto. Striving for excellence on every project – from large to small and nothing is too much trouble. Working abroad is always more challenging and needs to be organized well in advance so that time spent on site can be used to the best advantage. I traveled recently to China with the London Chamber of Commerce to promote Juliette Byrne Ltd and interior design in the Far East. I have also recently presented Awards at the International Property Awards in Shanghai. There are great opportunities abroad as the British Style is greatly admired by many.”
