I have worked with Antonia on several design projects and her creativity and strong attention to detail have always been second to none. Not only she is a strong project manager with a creative eye, she always listens to the client's needs and ensures she delivers beyond expectations. I will definitely recommend her for any creative projects. More...

I have had a great experience working with Antonia. She is very creative and sensitive to the needs of the client. Her practical and creative approach is excellent showing an understanding of both modern interior design and also the classic. It i very rare a designer is able to have such a broad historical approach with a razor sharp eye to the detail. Sometimes she is able to magic up the rustic look of a Bloomsbury interior from the time of the edwardians and other times she is modishly modern in her chic and manages to finalise with a global brand which is quirky and truly her own .

Sensible, consultative and professional approach to our challenge

Q&A

Probably not. In most cases, a garage conversion will fall under permitted development — particularly if you are not altering the actual structure of the building. Although it is worth checking that there are no planning conditions attached to the garage (ie, that it has to remain as parking) — if conditions are attached, you will need to apply to have them removed.

However, if you are converting a separate, stand-alone garage as opposed to an integral one, then you may have to apply for a change of use.

You will almost certainly need planning permission to convert your garage if your property is listed or you live in a Conservation Area.

your home your style - we use a design tool to create personal spaces either in or outside
you tell us what style you like - Georgian manor house, Country Cottage, Miami Resort, Modernism, Minimalism, townhouse, English Tudor, Gothic revival and we will use this information to guide us in our colour pallet, furniture and lighting style,

Interior architecture - For people that don't want to move but want a change - we will work around your current furniture - mostly its about moving lights, changing the colour of rooms, adding storage shelving, changing flooring , changing doors, doorframes adding fireplaces, opening up rooms - (make sure you have considered planning permissions)

For commercial sites, tell us the style of food or the USP if a cafe, if a shop or retail space - tell us about your products, if you want us to design window displays we need to know about your customers or the ones you are hoping to reach - so we can analyze the sector what the customer base is interested in.
if exterior - we consider gardens an underused extra room - so we work with architects to design the site based on your needs and lifestyle -
garden parties, outdoor dining, sunbathing, water lovers, green fingers.

As we are concept designers we concentrate on bespoke design - a company has a brand so why shouldn't a home.

I get to inspire people every day, flipping though archive books and online research on instagram, the Global approach to design - mixing cultures and history to create bespoke spaces based on the clients taste and background.

I trained as a sculpture but became increasing interested in Spatial Design and created spaces that expressed the history of people who inhabited them - which lead to a master of arts in Narrative Environments - I have worked with clients with everything from budgets £800 to £120,000 -
Good Design is not about spending the most its about respecting the space and inhabitats - iether commercial or residential.

- created bespoke interiors and products for homes, retail and commercial spaces, cafes, kitchens:

I have worked as an artist in residence for commercial architects Gensler, and have created commissions for large scale hotel installations.
Since 2010/11 I have been developing homes for the short stay market and for sale. I joined Bark mid March 2019

and advising clients for refurbishment - I have a team of builders decorators and electricians.

I create narrative spaces - a unique approach that allows the homeowner to explore their creativity through my design app -
I am an elected fellow of the Royal Society for Arts = I collaborate with artisans and have a huge network of up and coming designers and artists.
I am a Plum Guide awarded a designer and my rates are competitive.
