About Us

Helen Izzard is a Somerset-based interior design and soft furnishing studio, working on projects across Dorset, Devon, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Cornwall. 

Helen offers a beautifully bespoke interior design service for your home, from a full colour and design consultancy to creating hand-sewn or interlined curtains, roman blinds and bespoke soft furnishings, all traditionally handmade to the highest standards. All of Helen's products and service are meticulously designed and crafted in her Somerset studio. 

She is passionate about supporting British industry and craftsmanship and she works with many small British textile and wallpaper designers. Their designs are simply beautiful, inspirational and unique, and they follow Helen's own principles of an ethical, UK designed product, printed on the finest pure linens, naturally sustainable and ethically produced. Throughout the growing, cultivating and printing processes, linen has a naturally low carbon footprint.  

Much of Helen's inspiration for interior design is drawn from nature, both colours and designs, and from the everchanging seasons in Somerset. She believes that as humans build strong connections with our surroundings in the natural world and in our homes, we become extensions of who we are and the experiences we have. Returning to a beautiful home, surrounded by the things we have gathered and cherished, fills us with a greater sense of peace, and gives us our own sense of place.

How would you describe your style?

"A timeless, elegant, quintessentially English country home, thoughtfully designed and beautifully handcrafted interiors, window dressings and soft furnishings. Crafted using traditional hand skills and values to the highest standards, using natural fabrics to allow sustainable interior design.

Colour and design are at the heart of my design ethos, combined with being passionate about delivering the ‘hand-crafted’ values that I was taught as a child. With the growing awareness of sustainable living, I love to work with clients to create their homes in the same thoughtful and considered way."

"As well as our bespoke interior services, I also offer a design and colour consultancy. Choosing fabrics, designs and colour is an important and integral part of creating a gorgeous room, knowing where to start, understanding how colours work in harmony, blend or contrast, which paints and fabric to choose can be overwhelming.

My design and colour consultancy was created to offer help and guidance in making these decisions. Every client and every home is unique and will have different requirements. You may like a simple window dressing change, or you may wish to redesign the room, and need help with paints, colours and fabric choices. Following our personal consultation with you, we will provide you with one of our personal boxes for your room scheme, tailored to the colours and designs we have discussed."
