This practice continues to fly the
flag for the very best in British interior
design, while quietly imbuing
its timeless aesthetic with a twenty-first-
century twist. One of the company’s directors,
Wendy Nicholls, says: ‘We provide rooms
that reflect the individuality of the client and
respect the architecture of the building.’
Established in the Thirties, this
iconic design studio is still based in the same W1
town house. Design teams are headed by Wendy
and her fellow directors, Roger Jones, Philip
Hooper and Emma Burns, all pictured above,
along with associates Nicola Crawley and Janie
Money. Projects are mainly private homes.
Commissions include town houses in
Belgravia and Notting Hill, country houses in
Hampshire and Connecticut, US, a Grade II*-
listed house, a flat in Kensington and a seaside
cottage in Maine.

‘To find a disused church, have it shipped to the States, and erect
