The client posted his project to Design for Me, looking for a talented interior designer to assist with the interior design for a bachelor apartment in Bankside. Design for Me then matched him with the best candidates and he received interest from a number of interior designers.
Through Design for Me, the client narrowed down his search and ultimately found the perfect fit for his project in interior designer, Leo:
I love to collaborate with good people to create awesome spaces: kindly, economically, thoughtfully and creatively.
My particular design strengths are an ability to work with tight budgets (which I can find very creative) and to intuitively understand how people really inhabit and use spaces, which ensures that any of my designs will function really well first and foremost.
I have good experience sourcing vintage and reclaimed furniture, which I love to mix with both high street and designer brands. I am also very interested in the power of colour and work to use colours intelligently and sensitively within any interior design.
I always work hard to ensure that my projects are delivered on time and budget.
Leo on the result:
Set in a distinct apartment block designed by Richard Rogers, and with commanding views of the Tate Modern, we knew immediately that a modernist and minimal design would enable this apartment to respond well to its surroundings.
Our client was keen to have quite quirky pieces of furniture in his home and we had this in mind when designing bespoke joinery and sourcing furniture for him. Limewash paint adds a real warmth to a space that otherwise could have felt a little stark.

A happy client…
Leo’s work is visionary, approachable, and efficient and I am very happy with the process and outcome. Leo managed all contractors, deliveries, installations, and building work to a precise schedule, delivering all stages on time and on budget. Leo was keen to ensure sustainability and social accountability for the project, up-cycling reclaimed pieces and making sure existing furniture had another lease of life by gifting it to Furnishing Futures charity.
