About Me

London based interior designer

Immersed in design, fashion & interiors whilst growing up & a 16 year career in glossy magazines, combined with several successful house renovations meant that a transition into interior design felt right. Friends and colleagues questioned why I wasn't stressed whilst transforming our Victorian family home but for me I felt sheer excitement and anticipation about bringing to life my vision for each of the spaces (all achievable with a very comprehensive to-do list!) 

Interior design, room layouts, colour schemes and furniture sourcing can all seem rather over-whelming and stressful, especially if you are time poor, however with the right advice and planning it can be a truly enjoyable experience with life-changing results. I am able to edit the choices, make that list and remove the stress for you. 

Interiors advice doesn't have to be a luxury and I work to offer beautiful yet practical solutions for all budgets, whether that's just spending a few hours re-imagining a room layout or much longer on a whole house renovation. I believe in marrying great aesthetics with practicality, the space has to really work for the owner's needs. I am a whizz with storage solutions, in fact some of my favourite rooms are utility rooms and WC's as your house should look the dream but it should also function seamlessly for you. Having 2 young children means I understand that there can be and needs to be a place for everything! I want to make your life easier by making your house work harder for you.

What My Clients Have to Say

Home: Testimonials

“Grace helped us to finalise design plans for our kitchen, taking a collection of ideas and shaping them so that the space flows, looks beautiful and works for us as a family. Grace also worked with us to design our living rooms, she saved weeks of our time by bringing together a selection of furniture, paints and wallpapers to create 2 rooms we now love. She suggested a brilliant mix of high street and more boutique items and translated our thoughts into something that looks amazing. I would never have thought I would use an interior designer but Grace has brought a level of expertise that would take us years to achieve as well us saving us time and money, a brilliant service."

Jane Rumens

“Grace is incredible. She really took the time to understand what we wanted (and more importantly what we didn’t want) and has the most personable sense of calm authority throughout the whole process. 
She has an amazing eye and made us feel comfortable to experiment with new colours, fixtures and furnishings. 
And what a result! We couldn’t be happier with the projects she has completed for us from the immaculately produced mood boards and layouts through to the final details and finishing.
We will definitely be using Grace again.”

Scott Morrison

"Grace provided both vision and incredible practical support throughout our refurbishment. She understood our limited budget and sourced beautiful ideas at reasonable cost. As a complete novice when it comes to decorating, Grace held my hand throughout the process and I genuinely don't know what I would have done without her support and guidance!"

Jacqui Segal

"Working with Grace was a dream, she listened to our brief and interpreted it so well, suggesting cost conscious ideas and very reasonable suppliers. Her presentation and communication of design ideas were excellent and she has a very diplomatic way of handling clients and steering them in the right direction. We are absolutely delighted with her designs and ideas and everyone who has seen her work has been wowed. We have already recommended her to some friends and will most definitely work with her again when the occasion arises."

Jacquie Beck

"Grace has worked with us through a whole house refurbishment. From designing the kitchen and bathrooms, to choosing the entire colour scheme, to sourcing all our fixtures and fittings. We never imagined ourselves as the kind of people who would have an interior designer, but after a chance meeting with Grace and then discovering her incredibly reasonable pricing, we thought we'd give it a go. 

After spending some time getting to know us, she put together a design, mood board and product list for our kitchen. We were absolutely blown away. Not only did Grace design a kitchen which was beautiful, precisely to our taste and unlike anything we'd have been brave enough to choose ourselves, but it was £2,000 less than a bog-standard kitchen we'd picked ourselves. After that it was a no brainer and we decided to invest that money into working with Grace across the entire house.

Grace has made the biggest difference in this whole house refurb project. Her attention to detail and encyclopaedic knowledge of the best places to source tiles, lighting, furniture, taps etc.(!) means that we have a house unlike anything we could have put together ourselves. And all within our budget. We're now left with a house that feels too good to be true. Far more stylish, designer and cool than we could have imagined!

Grace has also been the loveliest person to work with. Thoughtful, timely and professional, but also so kind, warm and personable - we feel so lucky to have found her."

Deb Pinglis

“Having met Grace through our time together at Conde Nast, I had long admired her style and clever interpretation of current trends.  When I first showed Grace the plans for our renovation she immediately had some exciting ideas that we hadn’t considered. Throughout the entire process I found that Grace listened patiently to understand what I was trying to achieve and enthusiastically sourced everything from kitchen units, door knobs and work surfaces, to lights, paint colours and dining tables!  Not only was Grace a huge source of design inspiration, but also helped to ensure that deadlines were met and every last detail was considered.  We are absolutely delighted with the outcome and couldn’t recommend Grace highly enough.”

Liz Baillie

“Grace was absolutely great. I’d been considering renovating my flat for a couple of years, but had lacked the confidence to actually get the project started. Grace motivated me to get going, designed things from scratch when I wasn’t sure what I wanted and then helped guide me when ideas of my own started to come. She also gave me the confidence to choose a competitive, and ultimately excellent, builder by coming with me to inspect some of his previous work during the planning stage. I’ve now ended up with a flat I love and a new-found enthusiasm for interior design. I’d recommend her to anyone!”

Matt Wikner

“Grace is a breath of fresh air.  She is straight talking with a natural ability to see how to transform a space and make it look utterly beautiful.  She was key to the success of my recent ground floor renovation.   Her input and direction on how to make the most of my space saved me time and money and the result is a wonderful home that totally fulfils my initial brief.  Grace had a great understanding of what I wanted to achieve and the style I like however she also pushed me to make bolder decisions on certain items, all of which I love and which are now the highlights.  I would highly recommend Grace and would definitely call on her to work her magic when renovating other parts of my home.”
