Beautifully tailored & fully project-managed interior design

The North Oxford Family Home

This project in North Oxford was for a returning client who needed our help with their recently refurbished home. The brief was to create a smart but comfortable aesthetic, where classic furniture can come together with contemporary pieces and old and new can combine seamlessly.

We set the tone by specifying shades of Little Greene’s French Grey throughout. In the Sitting Room we added texture with Mark Alexander linen curtains, wool upholstery and Manuel Canovas embroidered cushions all grounded by a large bespoke linen bordered wool rug. The grey palette is accented with rich teal resulting in a timeless, subtle, joyful space that is wholly livable.

Upstairs the Master Bedroom has a feminine feel, where lined and interlined curtains in Lewis & Wood’s delicate print in myrtle pink are harmonized with rustic wood finishes and a softly embroidered bed valance - it’s understated and effortlessly beautiful design completed on time and within budget.

Stella's Story

A lifelong passion for colour, rich textures and beautiful fabrics shines through every living space I create - every design detail.

Memories of my french grandmother’s exquisite taste and a European upbringing inspired my fascination with Interior Design and my design ideas are inspired by a simple philosophy: your house should be your home - a joy to live in.

Julie's Story

A love of light, simplicity, textures and the connection between our inside and outside lives reflects how I view the world.

I believe good design cannot be separated from true living - and that good design means living with an open heart and feeling alive.

laura's Story

Having previously studied Woven Textiles at Winchester School of Art, I am now currently working towards a Diploma in Interior Design with KLC.

My own style has developed over the last few years and leans towards eclectic with influences from simple and textured mediums. I am drawn to elements of subtle colour and pattern with the addition of individual unique statement pieces that will add personality to what I always hope will create a comfortable, friendly and inviting home
