About Us

Founded in 2005 by Alexandra Henry Zabunov, I Love Colours is a small, creative and enthusiastic interior design studio based in Bath whose projects have acquired multiple design awards.

Alexandra’s designs are tailored to the client’s personality and are filled with colour, texture and furnishings that have a story to tell, therefore adding emotion to each interior. The interiors she creates are timeless, with pared back schemes creating calm and thoughtful spaces. 

Working internationally across both residential and commercial sectors, Alexandra creates aspirational, liveable spaces and is particularly attuned to the importance of colour, light, depth and proportion, a perspective that has seen her work featured in architecture and interiors magazines, in books and on design blogs. She believes in the power of good design to transform an environment.

Projects include hotels, restaurants, spas, apartments and private residences.

"We recently completed a full refurbishment of a flat in Switzerland; a 19th century building in the centre of Geneva, built in the Haussmann style. The flat hadn’t been touched since the 1960s and was in need of a complete transformation, to accommodate the needs and lifestyle of the current owners. Geneva is a small but cosmopolitan city, with people from all over the world finding a home there and therefore influencing the city’s culture and life. Our client is of similar international background, travels extensively and absolutely loves Japanese culture and decorative arts. The brief was to marry the beautiful architecture of the apartment with their love for art and their meditative lifestyle, with a restrained colour palette so that the overall atmosphere is calming and leads to introspection. Some rooms were remodeled to enhance their proportion and improve the flow between adjoining rooms. We kept and restored most of the original features of the apartment and added layers of tactile finishes, like the hand-painted and hand-embroidered silk wallpaper, the wool and linen wall coverings in the bedrooms, and the suede wall covering in the dressing room. The furniture, lighting and decorations, many of which were bespoke, were mostly sourced and crafted in the UK and shipped to Geneva, whereas the art was sourced at art fairs from around the world. The interior includes references to classical, contemporary and mid-century design and creates an aesthetic that is truly personalised to the clients’ lifestyle and tastes."
