Studio K Design
London, Greater London(1 Review)
Studio K Design is a fresh thinking interior design company possessing a business centric approach to their design studio. Every interior created is entirely unique and tailored to the individual client.
We prefer not to have a definitive house style, instead we offer a custom design service specific to each client’s personal style, the requirements of the project and architecture of the property. The resulting designs are creative, maximising the use of space with colour, light and texture, and are inspired, drawing on both contemporary and past design principles.
Completed projects over the last 4 years, range from Grade I Listed buildings through to period homes to modern apartments in the City. We work on a range of project sizes from full turnkey projects to smaller decorating jobs, across a myriad of design styles whether that be modern, traditional or classic contemporary.
The approach we take to each project, guides the client through the design journey with us, via a series of stages to deliver the agreed vision, resulting in completed work that is highly considered, exceptionally organised, and in pace with the clients high expectations. By harnessing strong business acumen garnered from previous careers in the corporate world, we pride ourselves on delivering projects that are on time and in budget, whilst offering a distinctive approach to each new design challenge.
Please do drop me a line to discuss a new project or to find out more about the services we can offer.

Studio K Design Q&A
What’s your interior design process?
Typically a project will have 3 or 4 key service stages which are agreed with the client at the outset.
All projects will have a Concept Design stage, which is then followed by the Developed Design stage (depending on the project this will be split into Interior Architecture, then Interior Decor / Design or will just be Interior Decor / Design). Finally, the design phase of the project will be completed with the Installation stage.
Additional services can be undertaken and agreed with the client, such as Overseeing the Project build / decor, shopping trips, consultation etc.
All services will be discussed on a case by case basis so that the client is getting exactly what they require for their project.
Which interior design styles can you cater for?
We prefer not to have a definitive house style, instead we offer a custom design service specific to each client’s personal style, the requirements of the project and architecture of the property.
As a result the projects we deliver can vary from design styles that are contemporary, traditional, industrial through to classical modern and period properties.
What do you love most about your job?
We love the variety within our working day and seeing a client enjoy the end product, of the journey we undertake together.
Our role, as designers, is to take the client's ideas of what they wish for their room or home and deliver that into a reality, which also takes the stress of the project away from the client.
What inspired you to start your own business?
Following my retraining at KLC School of Design, I was awarded the accolade Top Student which gave me the push I needed to start my own business. Having sat on the executive teams within my City career, I had a variety of business management and project management skills, which were easily transferred to running my own business. Alongside this, receiving my award for design I had the creative skill set to progress my career change.
Studio K Design was created and in the first year successfully secured several highly prestigious projects and an impressive client list.
Why should our clients choose you?
Harnessing strong business acumen garnered from previous careers in the corporate world, we're entirely focused on delivering and exceeding our clients’ expectations whilst offering a distinctive approach to each new design. We work to the highest standards with meticulous attention to detail, with our fundamental cornerstone being communication. This results in delivered projects that are considered, exceptionally organised, and tailored to the individual client, as well as being great designs.
As a creative we draw on our complimentary skills from our City careers to ensure that projects are meticulously managed from concept to completion and with exceptional attention to detail. We uphold strong business principles and ethics, with honesty and integrity in all our work and provide full transparency to our clients. This business centric approach of the design practice, delivering projects to the highest standards, on time and within budget has proven to be highly regarded by our clients and industry professionals alike.
