Susie Atkinson

A super-busy designer with a talent for creating soothing and classical rooms with a crisp vibe, Susie Atkinson eschews passing fashions, preferring to ‘bring a room to life with exquisite colours, furniture or a favourite heirloom’. She enjoys using natural textiles and textural surfaces, such as wood, zinc and granite. These are welcoming interiors, with the capacity to surprise.


Susie draws on more than 20 years’ experience, having trained at the Inchbald School of Design and launched her company in 1994. She has a team of five at her Hammersmith studios, offering architectural and design services.


Susie works on both commercial and private-home commissions. Current projects include town houses in Wimbledon and Soho, a riverside property in Hammersmith and a country house in Surrey, as well as The Queen’s Club sports complex. She recently completed two barns in Sussex and a large estate in Bath. Her new upholstery range launches in 2015.

Which rules do you break?

‘I like to throw unexpected fabrics together – geometrics with florals, a velvet with hessian – to add interest and depth.’
