What services do you provide?

Interior Design

How would you describe your style?

"We have a diverse sense of style that is fresh and contemporary, and we love to play with pattern and colour. We always aim for our designs to complement the individual property, and to stand the test of time. Whilst our personal tastes are quite different, we work collaboratively as a design duo across a wide range of briefs."

"One of our latest projects has been transforming a stark commercial barn into a high-end, but homely five-bedroom family home, which is due to hit the market this summer. We have really enjoyed the challenge and partnership with our clients who have been developing the site.

The property lent itself to quite a modern style with its vaulted ceilings and large, open-plan living space, so we have gone with lots of raw finishes such as polished concrete and natural oak, coupled with antiqued brass and bronze hardware and lighting to bring in some warmth. We’ve been involved right from the start in reviewing architectural plans, designing the lighting and specifying all FF&E, right through to creating CGIs and logos for marketing purposes, and furnishing the property as a show home. We only wish we could move in ourselves!”
