About Us

House & Garden's Top 100 Designer Octavia's design philosophy is that a home should reflect its owner and that it should therefore be entirely unique. Knowing that the success of every interior depends on the often-unnoticed fine detail, Octavia is committed to sourcing and working with the best artisans and craftsmen to realise the most beautiful results. In 2022, Octavia's inaugural collection of fabrics and wallpapers was launched on our website, inspired by her love of vintage textiles, ceramics, and much-loved objects, which reflect her commitment to creating a desirable place to live that is colourful and, most importantly, comfortable.

"When we came across our previously uninhabitable home in London, we couldn’t let the opportunity go to turn it into a warm, functional, homely place for my family to live. Having been lucky enough to inherit planning permission and architectural plans meant I could focus on decorating using my favourite fabrics, textured wallcoverings, vibrant paint colours, antiques, and bespoke pieces of furniture. It was also a chance to re-imagine and re-work existing schemes from our old flat, in a new and fresh way, to keep an eye on the costs. The success of an interior for me comes down to the small details, such as extending the wall behind the sofa to make space for a much-loved piece of art, adding baize doors to and from the kitchen and sneaking in a hidden bar just off the sitting room. Evoking a feeling of an English Country home, especially in London, was at the forefront of my mind, so mixing delicate details such as gathered fabric panels in the bathrooms and a secret door from our bedroom into our bathroom immediately made it feel like home."
