How would you describe your style?

"Ageless, elegant and modern. I love to combine classic details with modern design and think that the richest spaces are the ones where a client’s personality can really be seen."

Please describe a recently completed project or tell us about the bespoke service that you offer

"We recently completed the full refurbishment and interior design of a Norman Shaw Grade II listed pied-a-terre on Walton Street, Knightsbridge for an art collector with a strong eye for detail and design. We started by re-positioning and re-proportioning the spaces in the home to preserve and highlight the grandeur of the principal rooms. The client’s impressive collection of antique Chinese artworks became a focal point of our design, and gave us precedence to create spaces for the art rather than spaces with art. We created textural limewash walls and characterful timber floors to layer the artwork and highlight it, and surrounded the pieces with extensive bespoke joinery, including a bespoke kitchen, wardrobes, and banquette seating. This allowed us to maximise the spaces and made sure that every element of the home was specifically suited for that space. We finished the rooms with luxurious furniture pieces in rich velvets, silks and linens and delicate yet dramatic lighting, thus creating a home that is a piece of artwork itself."
