THE BEST OF BRITISH (RESIDENTIAL) VOL. V

For Anna Maria Interiors this project was the ultimate challenge of starting from scratch. The brief was to design and manage the build of private clients’ 15,000 ft dream home in the heart of Chigwell, Essex. Anna Maria Interiors aimed to provide the family with a lifetime of happiness within their dream home concisely integrating all aspects of luxury within their home through a timeless interior.

DESIGNER IN PROFILE: KAREN HOWES, FOUNDER & CEO OF TAYLOR HOWES

How would you describe your personal interior design style?
I love clever design and glamorous detail. I collect British 20th Century art and my collection greatly influences the designs of my own properties.

Where does your design inspiration come from?
Fashion, social media, magazines and blogs offer are a great source of inspiration for us, as well as art and travelling around the world. We are lucky in that we can regularly visit trade fairs, both in London and internationally which give us the opportunity to take a break from our current work and come back with lots of new and fresh ideas.

SHALINI MISRA 2019 WINNER OF CITY SPACE (APARTMENT/PENTHOUSE) – GLOBAL AWARD

The brief for this project was a home that was a familiar and warm space, where serenity and calm would be provided after a hectic day in the city. Commissioned by a UK based family, interior designer Shalini Misra designed this fine pied-a-terre in New York to act as a secondary home primarily used for holidays, business trips and hosting family friends. One of the ways in which the designers achieved the brief was through combining pieces by local New York designers and studios with pieces from international designers as well as a mixture of vintage and contemporary sleek designs.
