HISTORY AND BACKGROUND
Interior Couture was founded in 2005 by Elaine Williams, a former lawyer who had held a passion for design and property throughout her high flying legal career, and who left the law, and retrained (undertaking a Post Graduate Diploma in Architectural Interior Design at Inchbald School of Design, London) before launching her own interior design business. From the outset, Interior Couture was an architectural design practice, handling all aspects of interior design and build, spatial planning, project management, as well as pure interior decoration, sourcing and styling.
Our projects have ranged from complete redevelopments and/or extensions of large private houses, as well as architecturally renowned new builds, both in central London and the Home Counties, through to styling and sourcing for established international luxury brands. Projects have included designing private pool and spa complexes, designing and styling central London developers' properties from strip out to sale point, to maximise potential on resale, together with refurbishments of a whole range of private houses, apartments and duplexes all over the capital.
DESIGN AND BUILD/TURN KEY PROJECTS
Not only can we supply our own teams of contractors and makers for you if you wish, we also act as a conduit between you and the numerous experts, suppliers and makers necessary to deliver your project. These may range from craftsmen to structural engineers, from landscape designers to passementerie makers, giving you one easy point of contact in ourselves, throughout the process, coordinating everything smoothly and efficiently, so that you can be as involved as you wish, or simply settle back, check your regular project updates, and just let it happen.
EXPERTS AND SUPPLIERS
We work with established teams of professionals, contractors, and a huge range of suppliers and makers, located from Chelsea to China and many places in between.
Our clients come from all walks of life, from developers and those with commercial outlets and luxe brands, to private clients, across a wide range of professions and none, including bankers, financiers, homemakers, media professionals, and artists. We are very proud of the fact that most of our business comes from repeat commissions from existing clients, with whom we have formed close working and friendly relationships, as well as recommendations by them to their wider circle.
