Her award-winning Chelsea practice goes from strength to strength, focusing on high-end homes for private clients and
property developers. Juliette Byrne prides herself on creating individual designs, thoughtfully mixing clients’ existing pieces with bespoke items. Her own-brand candles are a nice touch for clients moving in.
Juliette has more than 25 years’ experience in the industry, having trained at the Chelsea School of Art and with Conran. She set up her own business in 1988 and now she and four full-time designers make for a highly efficient team.
The team works in the UK and inter- nationally; there’s also a turnkey service for super-busy clients. Among current commissions are a Grade I-listed property in Regent’s Park, including the restoration of original features; the redesign of a Grade II-listed house, also in Regent’s Park, featuring a glazed gallery for the clients’ art collection; and a penthouse in Knightsbridge, untouched since the Sixties.
