About Us

Barlow & Barlow is a British interior design studio known for its dual expertise in decoration and lighting. Lucy Barlow set up the Holland Park practice in September 2013 with her brother, Max, the studio’s in-house lighting designer. Lucy quickly gained a reputation for creating spaces that are both youthful and exuberant. One of the few studios to offer a complete interior architecture, decoration and lighting service, it playfully reinvents the traditional English interior for a young and dynamic clientele from London to Dublin & Marbella. Barlow & Barlow’s living interiors are an antidote to the blandness of the instant house look. Its boldly eclectic schemes feature custom sourced art, antiques and bespoke furnishing often designed together with the client. With an academic grounding in fashion and interiors, Lucy designs her schemes with a fearless and luxurious sense of print, pattern and colour. The studio takes a similarly decorative approach to lighting and instils every project with warmth and vibrancy. Alongside their extensive portfolio of international interior projects, Barlow & Barlow produces a burgeoning collection of bespoke and limited edition decorative objects, custom lighting, and furniture including scented candles and artisanal ceramic lamps handmade in Finland.

Working with a variety of budgets our most recent project for two generations of the same family showcases schemes rooted in tradition - but offering a contemporary twist with a sense of fun, colour and pattern. Combining printed fabrics and vibrant colour schemes in the daughters house, neutral walls in the mother's house provide a backdrop for original artwork and antique furniture set against Barlow & Barlow designed slipper chairs, upholstered in contemporary patterned fabric with passementarie detailing.
