About Us

Sarah’s designs resonate individualism; her unique take of aesthetic and intuitive sense to understand her client's requirements results in elegant interiors, rich in colour, pattern and texture. Sarah’s unique sense of design takes each individual, the historical context of the building, and the lifestyle of her clients into consideration when creating the design scheme for her clients.

Sarah Fortescue’s Design Studio was founded in Hong Kong in 2011, having completed the Interior of the Grade II listed Cornish Manor, Boconnoc in the UK. Sarah trained at the Inchbald School of Design, London, where her unique approach to working with colour and her originality of her interiors, now secures her projects throughout the UK and abroad in Commercial & Residential.
