How would you describe your style?

"Our style is classic, playful and authentic. We love using colour in clever ways to set the tone for each room, mixing contemporary pieces with vintage finds. Every project is unique. We take pride in listening to the client's needs and unique briefs."

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

"We recently completed a fabulous house in Barnes for a wonderful family with very different (and specific) needs and desires. Each room tells a story; that reflects that of the individual and others for everyone to enjoy each in their own way. The highly functional rooms such as the kitchen and family room have neutral bones with playful touches. We used colourful fabrics and vintage furniture to add character to these spaces. In contrast, a more transient, less used room such as the library is painted a wild peacock gloss, floor to ceiling, filled with books and artefacts. We designed bespoke joinery throughout as well furniture and window treatments, working with the client from concept through to completion."
