About Us

Established in 2013 by Melissa Hutley and Charlie Humm, Hutley and Humm take pride in their immersive approach to each project. We work for our clients to manage all aspects of interior design including; liaising with architects, designing bespoke fixtures and fittings, sourcing untapped furniture makers, and hunting down art and antiques from our wide network of contacts. Our creative process involves designing a home that is classically elegant and filled with character. We consider every aspect and viewpoint of a room, making sure that every angle, nook or corner is carefully considered.

We believe a home should reflect its inhabitants and act as a window into things that they love and places that they’ve visited. We source antiques and commission bespoke designs that work specifically for a space and for the client’s lifestyle. We aren’t afraid to encourage our clients to be brave. We support them, giving them the confidence to have colours and designs in their home that ultimately elevate their day-to-day life.

"We were chosen to complete this project, having connected with the clients and understood their vision for the property. They wanted a sophisticated space suitable for everyday family living. The listed property needed to comply with English Heritage guidelines and we ensured that the interior architecture was sensitive to the property's history by reinstating many original features. We formed a close relationship with the clients from the outset as they had clear ideas for their home, which were our starting point for the design. A Cole & Son jungle wallpaper creates a statement in the cloakroom, and we sourced lots of one-off finds from our various go-to antiques dealers."
