It all started when...
I took a leap from a successful ten year career in branding into the world of interiors back in 2010.
Initially gaining industry experience with design studio Sigmar and leading brand Designers Guild, and then a couple private projects under my belt, I co-created barkerbournedesign in 2011, with the ambition to create an accessible design studio. My design partnership was lucky enough to work across a broad variety of briefs and styles. We created a down to earth, flexible approach centred around our clients, delivering affordable, bespoke creative solutions for homes and businesses. Taking on this ethos, I decided to work under my own name in 2014, following the start of my family.
I work closely with my clients and trade partners to create homes and business environments that have great design at their heart. Each project is unique, to suit a client’s brief and budget. I'm passionate about delivering curated considered designs that work, and excites.
I strongly believe that a successful design project results from three core elements:
A great working partnership with clients
Reliable trade network
I've been lucky enough to work on approximately 50 projects so far, across London and the Home Counties. From apartments and offices, of all shapes and sizes, to 6 bedroom homes. In the last two years it's been back to back complete refurbishments of family homes, predominantly in SW London. Whilst it's been very busy, it's been a joy too.
A selection of projects are shown here. I hope to share my current projects, which include a Chelsea townhouse, Fulham maisonette and Tonsley Townhouse, shortly. To keep up to date with my goings on, please join me on Instagram and Facebook.
