London Interior Designers Say Light is Key to Creating Calming Spaces
This year marks the 10th anniversary of London-based design and architecture firm Millier. The company’s founders, Alexandra Nord and Helen Westlake, have worked on a number of impressive projects, including London’s only Grade-I listed new-build Regent’s Crescent; the superprime development The Bryanston in London’s Marble Arch neighborhood; and Islay House, one of Scotland’s grandest country homes. They’ve also worked on private residences in Scandinavia and Sydney.
With an all-female management team at the helm, Millier has 16 architects and designers.
And this year, their work will include one of the world’s grandest country estates, a world-class equestrian and event space, and new West London residences with a strong focus on wellness.
In response to the Covid-19 situation, Millier is now offering clients a virtual interior design service, providing advice and a full interior design scheme for their current or future homes via virtual tours and CGI rendering.
We caught up with Ms. Nord, 36, and Ms. Westlake, 40, to discuss what makes a home classically British, the importance of proportions over size, and more.
