Harriet Anstruther Studio
This is a dynamic, multidisciplinary studio, headed by design director and consultant Harriet Anstruther, but very much a ‘team effort’. Interior Design exude glamour, playful contradictions and extraordinary attention to detail. Harriet delivers brilliant advice on the selection and commission of art, and her new book, Reveal (Clearview, £30), explores how interior design ‘allows us to examine our environment and ourselves’.
Harriet studied fine art and worked in fashion and textiles, then retrained at the Inchbald School of Design. She launched her practice in 2011 and has a team of 11. Harriet acts in an advisory capacity for the Design Museum, the V&A and the Royal Academy of Arts, among others. She also lectures at the RCA.
Current commissions include an estate with a manor house and outbuildings in Bedfordshire, and a seven-floor dwelling in Mayfair. The studio recently completed two town houses and a penthouse duplex in London.
