    In London’s competitive property market, certain interior design styles tend to be more appealing to home buyers and can potentially increase the value of a property and its likability. Here are a few design styles that are popular among London buyers.

    A clean and sleek design with open spaces, neutral colours, and minimalist aesthetics is highly appealing to home buyers who project themselves in your house when walking around during a viewing. Contemporary design appeals to buyers seeking a sophisticated and uncluttered living environment.


    The Scandinavian style’s emphasis on light and natural materials resonates well with Londoners. It’s functional and sleek where space might not be abundant. It is cosy and creates an inviting atmosphere, making it appealing to potential buyers, especially the younger generation.


    The industrial look with exposed brick, metal accents, and vintage furniture has gained popularity. It’s regarded as timeless and a piece of London.

  • How we create timeless interiors combining elegance and practicality

    Have you ever walked into a furniture showroom that displays beautiful pieces only to think they don’t tick your practical needs which are unique to your family? Or maybe you are catching a glimpse of the current trends but have a niggling feeling in a year or two they will look dated? 

    Here’s 5 ways we ensure our designs are timeless, elegant and practical all at the same time, standing the test of time. 

    Efficient space planning: We create layouts that utilises the structure of your rooms effectively using our extensive knowledge on the furniture sizes and types available on the market. Designating zones for different activities, if you need your rooms to be multifunctional, ensures that the space is practical for various purposes, maintaining both practicality and aesthetics.

    Streamlined design elements: Focusing on clean lines, clutter-free design and cohesive colour palettes will create an elegant and pleasant environment ensuring timeless rooms you’ll carry on loving. We incorporate smart storage solutions that keep essential items organised and out of sight, preserving the visual serenity of the space without compromising on your daily needs. 

    Purposeful furniture selection: We select furniture pieces that not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of the space but also serve a functional purpose after speaking to you about your current and future needs. Incorporating multifunctional furniture, such as storage ottomans or bedside tables with storage for example helps maximise utility without compromising on elegance.

    High-quality materials: We look high and low among online and high-street retailers for durable and high-quality products that offer both a luxurious feel and longevity without compromising on the design. We propose items that are not only visually appealing but also easy to maintain, aligned with your practical needs and within your budget. 

    Lighting harmony: We design with a thoughtful lighting scheme that balances ambient, tasks, and accent lighting. Proper lighting enhances the functionality of the space while also highlighting design elements that contribute to the overall elegance. This will support you in setting the mood you want to achieve throughout the day and evening. We do this with flexibility so you can have full control over the tone you want to set for different occasions and use of your rooms. By incorporating these concepts into the design process, we can create interiors that resonate with your sophisticated tastes while also catering to your practical needs, resulting in spaces that effortlessly blend elegance and functionality in a timeless manner. Rooms you will keep falling in love with for the years to come. 


  • Designing multifunctional spaces for families to balance work and life at home

    Given that work-life balance has become an integral part of our lives in recent years, it is fair to say our homes have a harder job to do in supporting us balance seamlessly whilst providing comfort. 

    Here’s how we create versatile and multipurpose rooms that cater to both work and relaxation, addressing the needs of working families.

    Efficiency in space utilisation: With demanding careers and busy family schedules, everyone needs spaces that can effectively transition between work and personal time with your loved ones. A well-designed multifunctional room optimises every part of the space, ensuring that both work-related tasks and family activities can coexist harmoniously whenever you switch between the two. 

    Maximising productivity: With a somewhat blurred line between working from home and living at home, we now require a dedicated workspace that fosters concentration and productivity. A thoughtfully designed multipurpose room ensures a dedicated area for focused work that’s equipped with the right furniture, storage and lighting to set the work tone, so your efficiency and environment aren’t compromised. 

    Flexible work-life balance: Between juggling meetings, deadlines, and family commitments, you need a thought-through space that can transform to suit your day, evening and weekend needs. A versatile design will allow this to switch from a professional setting for video calls to a cosy atmosphere for spending quality time with family, all within the same room.

    Stress reduction: A carefully crafted design will support a multipurpose room in reducing stress and forging a clear separation between work and relaxation. Having designated zones within the same space will help you mentally shift gears, allowing you to unwind after a demanding day without the constant reminder of pending tasks. 

    Enhancing family togetherness: When you cherish quality time with family, it’s important to get the multifunctional room just right. This can be done by accommodating individual and shared activity needs. Whether it’s a place to read, practice hobbies, or engage in family games, a well-designed space promotes bonding time and enriches the memories you create. The key to designing successful multipurpose spaces lies in understanding your unique needs, the lifestyle you wish to forge and creating an environment that seamlessly supports this, enabling you to balance work, family, and relaxation effortlessly.
