Rachel Winham – Managing Director and Design Director


What would be your perfect day out?
It would involve a lot of delicious food! Long (boozy if I wasn’t pregnant!) lunch, walk, followed by hot chocolate and cake! 

If you were on a desert island, what would be your 3 essential things to bring?
1. Moisturiser – I am religious about my daily routine but I would forget the rest if I had face and body moisturiser!
2. Lip balm – I am a lip balm junkie, can’t live with out it!
3. A blanket – No matter whether is hot or cold I love a blanket to snuggle up to! 

Favourite places to shop
Selfridges, because it has everything under one roof! Otherwise Net A Porter, it’s so convenient and next day delivery! 

Rachel Battais – Senior Designer


Who is your design inspiration and why?

I actually have a few designers that inspire me at the moment, Joseph Dirand, Kelly Wearstler, Jean Louis Deniot and Peter Morino. Each of these designers inspire me in different ways as they have different styles and different approaches on designing a space, playing with colours shapes, texture and materials. I also get inspired by fashion – Christian Dior, Lagerfeld, Valentino.

What would be your dream holiday destination?
In a small Caribbean island with beautiful sea and landscapes.

Where are your favourite places to shop?
It depends on what I’m looking for but I like shopping at Gallery Lafayette in Paris.


Olivia Cartwright – Interior Designer


Who is your design inspiration and why?
I love what Kelly Wearstler does. She makes the wrong so right and I admire how she clashes colour, pattern and texture with a no holds barred approach, reminding us all that design really has no boundaries.

What would be your dream holiday destination?
I would love to go to India and travel the golden triangle. I have always wanted to go and am constantly drawn to its vibrant culture, architectural grandeur and delicious food.  I would love to get stuck into all the markets there and see what gems I could bring home with me!

What is your perfect day out?
My perfect day would start with a reformer pilates class in Notting hill and then brunch with my sisters. I would follow this up with a wander down Westbourne Grove and a coffee at Daylesford. A massage or a manicure wouldn’t go a miss at this point! The day would end with a roast at a cosy local pub with friends and my boyfriend and a large glass of red!


Gabrielle De Clermont – Interior Designer


Who is your design inspiration and why?
Joseph Dirand – for his classical elegance and keen eye for architectural detailing.

What would be your dream holiday destination?
Mexico – for the mix of relaxation on the beautiful coastline to adventure and discovery of travelling around. Inspiring Mayan temples, bursts of colour and of course the food!

Where are your favourite places to shop?
Markets, vintage & second hand furniture shops, Golborne Road & around Colombia Road.


Siobhan Doran – Interior Designer


If you were on a desert island and could only bring 3 things, what would they be?
If I was on a desert island and I could bring three things with me, they would be: a person to share it with, a pen and paper to draw and a camera to capture the memories.

What would be your dream holiday destination?
I have always wanted to visit Iceland; an unspoiled land of surreal landscapes and breath-taking views. The beauty of nature’s glaciers, waterfalls and hot springs – a far cry from the bustling streets of London!

Where are your favourite places to shop?
I love finding quirky little shops that sells handmade exquisite jewellery. Formally specialising in Jewellery design I still have a real love for well-crafted beautifully designed pieces. There’s something special about bespoke handmade objects that I have a really appreciation and admiration for.

Meg McMullen – Office Manager


What would be your dream holiday?
The Hamptons, As well as the beautiful beaches, American flags and preppy vibes, I love the New England style as it reminds me of growing up. My mum designed our family home as if it was a beach house! 

If you were on a desert island and could only bring 3 things, what would they be?
A strawberry daiquiri, King prawns & olive oil for the multi purpose of cooking & sunbathing! 

What is your perfect day out?
A long lie in with pancakes in bed followed by a morning pamper session and a day of shopping with my sisters, finished by a dinner at Roka with my boyfriend. The food is amazing!
