"Tracy is an outstanding decorator who is also extremely easy to work with. She quickly came to understand our likes and dislikes and sourced furniture and fabric to suit them, while also encouraging us to look at fabric and furniture we might not have otherwise considered. When we had ideas for furniture that could not be found ready-made, she called on her extensive contacts to have the furniture made to order. She is thoughtful, efficient, and has a wonderful eye. I trust her completely and am extremely happy with the results of her work on our house."
"As a residential developer I hire Tracy to help select materials, paint colours and finishings and then purchase furniture to stage properties for sale. We find the desired balance of giving properties a hint of what they can be without over-decorating them. The homes end up being warm and sophisticated, which is what I want to achieve, all the while working with Tracy, which is such a pleasure. One of those rare win-win situations in life."
"Tracy Hain has excellent taste and broad knowledge of decorating resources. She successfully furnished and decorated our home in accordance with our expressed wishes with beautiful results."
"Beaux Ideal created an elegant and professional environment for the Larkin Club, a business networking space operating from Canada House on Trafalgar Square during the 2012 Olympic Games. Tracy designed three spacious rooms in the historic property, furnishing them with antiques from the Canada House collection, Canadian art loaned from a private gallery as well as new pieces commissioned by Tracy and loaned to us for the duration of the Games. Tracy's design could not have been better - thoughtful, functional and professional and equally important, on budget. We were proud of the Larkin Club and people's main concern was that we find a way of keeping it well beyond the Olympic time frame. She understood our needs as a client, showed great attention to detail, and used her talents in design, historical research and her extensive network to achieve an enviable result."
“Tracy Hain at Beaux Ideal provides that rare combination of artistic sensibility and business acumen. She is ingeniously responsive, not only to the physicality of the space at hand, but to the disposition of the client, and skillfully melds the subtle complexities of both into a quintessential creation. All the while, Tracy quietly manages the less glamorous tasks of builders and suppliers to ensure the swiftest, and most economically advantageous, outcome. Tracy epitomises design professionalism and I look forward to many more projects with Beaux Ideal.”
"Our project involved freshening up a few rooms and pulling together both the existing decor/style with our own furnishings. Tracy expertly identified key needs in each room that would achieve our objectives. The sources she used for statement objects were unique & creative, timely in their delivery, and within budget. She was also helpful in sourcing the few little bits and bobs that can really bring a room together. A lot of designers will only work with you if you have a large project and blank canvas. I believe that Tracy can easily do this but is equally adept at helping someone improve upon what they already have and fill in the gaps."
"I have had the pleasure of working with Tracy Hain on several separate reconstruction projects and one acquisition over three years and during that time Tracy has become a truly trusted advisor. Tracy has offered professional, solid and insightful advice regarding design, property acquisition, lifestyle, organization and planning. Despite the traumatic challenges of reconstruction and acquiring new property, Tracy has an ability to understand and then clearly articulate my vision to architects, agents, builders and suppliers. Tracy also provides high quality guidance in a sincere and friendly manner. I do not hesitate to recommend Tracy as a consultant and designer as I enjoy working with her and she makes those aspects of my life so much easier."
"When arriving in London as an expatriate, I had no idea where to begin with the decoration of our home. I desperately needed help fusing my existing furnishings with the new surroundings. I was connected with Tracy Hain through a silent auction item I purchased. Luckily, Tracy was a pleasure to work with and I knew straight away I would utilize her assistance beyond the package I had purchased. She dutifully worked within the parameters that we discussed, listened to my needs and provided me with a variety of options that fit with my aesthetic. I highly recommend her services."
"I worked with Tracy Hain on a project that involved beautiful fabrics, chosen by Tracy, to create a spectacular room. Tracy took care of all aspects of this project and was there from beginning to end. Her attention to detail and creativity was remarkable. I knew I was in good hands."
