With an eye for natural materials, bold shapes and handcrafted pieces, Alice produces characterful living spaces that seamlessly blend form and function.
With a background in interiors that spans nearly two decades, Alice creates timeless schemes based on the principles of good design. The invisible yet essential details that improve day-to-day living and the aesthetic touches that generate visual pleasure play an equal part in her schemes.
Alice’s portfolio includes period family homes, contemporary spaces, country escapes and city houses. Her belief that every home should express its owner’s passions produces interiors that are uniquely tailored to their inhabitants. As a result, Alice embraces both pared-back design and traditional, more maximalist approaches, delivered with a twist. The values that underpin her work remain consistent however: a respect for craftsmanship and the beauty of design classics; an enjoyment of colour and pattern and a tendency to produce playful motifs, from an unexpected lampshade trim to a tactile wall finish.
A seamless blend of antique and modern pieces, one-off finds and specially commissioned art or furniture means that schemes take on a relaxed yet supremely comfortable feel, whether Alice is renovating an entire house or breathing fresh life into an existing room. Working to deliver on time and on budget, Alice offers a range of services from consultancy and sourcing to personal shopping and project management.

I have been so lucky to have worked for some amazing clients. Here are some of the things they have written:
“Alice was informal and unintimidating, not what I would normally associate with an interior designer”
“Alice has helped us hugely with our home. She has a great eye for detail, but most importantly her industry knowledge is fantastic”
“I particularly enjoyed using the service Alice offered, as I felt I didn’t have to commit to an expensive outlay, but could use her as much or as little as I felt necessary”
“I would like to say that you have splendid taste and work very fast to please the needs of a very busy London client”
“Alice is super-efficient. I would never have got my house finished without her”
“We can’t thank you enough....As you know we tried to do it all ourselves to start with, choosing all the wrong colours and fabrics, then you came to our rescue and had it all sorted within 24 hours”
“We love our home again - and we will never understand how you instantly and effortlessly knew what worked and knew what we wanted”
“The sofa is perfect. I love the material and it brings the whole room together”
“Alice was an absolute star and a joy to work with. I would use her again and would recommend her with pride”
“Alice was a delight to work with. She took the time to understand my tastes and the new style I was looking for, then spoiled me for choice with plenty of different fabrics, colours and materials. She is extremely efficient and I was very pleased with how quickly the work was completed. Her rates are also extremely competitive. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anybody”
“Alice gave our family home a fresh and funky vibe which can be enjoyed by both children and me and my husband”
