My common sense approach to design has manifested as a dedication to making design more attainable - my flexible and transparent design service was born out of a passion for helping people accomplish beautiful homes by making the most of where they live and maximising the potential of every home.
My ethos is to create designs that look like they have been there for a long time but still feel contemporary - my interiors are a combination of Scandinavian minimalism and British traditionalism, intuitively combined with natural materials and textures as well as crucially, the personalities of my clients. This results in balanced and personable living spaces that are led by the lives (and budgets) of the people who inhabit them.
My experience at leading interiors studios in London ranges from working with homeowners, commercial clients, developers and investors. I welcome collaboration between other creative businesses and am committed to sharing honest advice and industry knowledge.

I cannot praise Pia's performance enough. For the first time in our lives we were starting with a brand new house rather than a period property and I needed a lot of help conceptualising the overall design for the interior and then she was super-efficient at putting it all together. I've had 3 occasions to use designers on big projects in the past and I found Pia's performance to be absolutely excellent, a reflection, I presume of the depth and breadth of her past professional career. She is imaginative, professional, prompt, responsive, tactful, unflappable and a delightful person into the bargain - I hope we will always stay in touch. Pia particularly impressed me by her ability to problem-solve extremely creatively and her sourcing ability is really remarkable. Pia never kept me waiting for replies to my questions and requests and she was excellent at sticking to the budget I had set. I would wholeheartedly recommend her for your project large or small.

I cannot recommend Pia highly enough. We recently renovated the ground floor of our home and although I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted style wise, I didn't have the time to do the planning properly. Pia took my ideas and made them even better, and had all sorts of suggestions for details I would never have thought of, which made all the difference to the end result. She totally got what I wanted and always managed to find just the right piece, the right colour or the right style. She was sympathetic of our (often tight) budget and was great at finding cost effective solutions. Even my highly skeptical husband was utterly converted and he will now often suggest we speak to Pia to get ideas or settle a disagreement! Thanks Pia, we have you thank for helping us realise the home of our dreams.

Pia’s work was above and beyond what we expected. It was the first time we have used a designer and Pia came highly recommended by our builder. From the beginning we were impressed with Pia, her professionalism, creativity and commitment to her craft. Pia was able to turn our ideas into reality, her design knowledge and industry experience evident throughout the process. Our renovation was a complete top to bottom refurbishment of a 1891 period property. We wanted a Modern Victorian and Pia’s attention to detail and solution focused approach delivered the house that we wanted. Pia worked well within our budget and her industry connections were invaluable, providing us with higher quality fixtures and features. We have no hesitation in recommending Pia, exceptional design professional and also a really nice person to work with.
