About Us

Nefarious focuses on being able to create spaces as individual and original as their clients, that are atmospheric and memorable yet practical and functional. The company's unique perspective and lateral thinking are the foundation in forging the “One Off” backdrop to life’s experiences. 

One aspect of design which is inherent in all Nefarious projects is “The Devil Is in The Detail”, with all designs focusing on the detail and considering how it will affect the look, feel and use of space with a problem-solving, positive attitude. Nefarious Design delivers personal and enjoyable spaces that are functional, fun, and unique.

The team work with an array of budgets, project sizes and durations. If that’s the conceptualisation to completion or helping with a specific stage in a project. Each is personalised and tailored to the client and is always emphasised to be a joy-full, enjoyable experience.

"This 19th-century Georgian Townhouse was to be our client's London Escape when visiting the big city. With a rich knowledge of different cultures having travelled the world, and collecting art and fabrics galore Nefarious knew that we could create truly unique spaces that reflected our client’s personal style. We wanted the spaces to feel like a family, each having its own unique design and yet still belonging together. 

With the entrance and stairway, we wanted to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere with a painted line detail that runs through the stairs to highlight the art above. We also designed a radiator enclosure with hand-painted detailing and carved scrolls for a set-down space for keys

With the kitchen, we kept the cabinetry but changed the countertop to marble and added a mosaic backsplash and just off this the dining nook is the perfect place to have breakfast in the morning. The small cloakroom design is loud and colourful with red matchboard and Florence wallpaper that is just off the dining room where we painted the floor in dark green and sourced many antiques such as the dresser unit.

The best room architecturally in the house is the salon, with high ceilings, an original cornice and mouldings. We wanted to create a warm and soothing space highlighting the details in contrasting colours and hand-painted niches. 

The master bathroom was the main structural change, ripping out the 1960s faux marble bathroom we changed the layout to have the bath in front of the window and designed a bespoke vanity unit and shower enclosure."
