Interior Design

We know good design can make people happy. Design is not just about making somewhere look pretty – it is a thoughtful and intelligent process that considers lighting, texture, colour, function and the flow from room to room. For us, interior design is about listening carefully to what our clients say, distilling that information, and then using our own expertise and judgement to deliver interiors of refinement that far surpass all expectations. 

While Sims Hilditch is recognised as the go-to studio for English country houses, our look is much in demand for those living in the city too. Comfort and elegance translate just as well to lateral London apartments and smart town-houses as they do to castles and cottages.

Interior Architecture

Interior architecture is centred on the spatial configuration of an interior. We believe it is essential to draw on the structure, materials and history of a building to inform how it may be adapted for contemporary living, with due regard to planning processes and listed building consents. 

The redefining of space may focus on adding structural elements – or on removing them. It may incorporate the repair of original plasterwork or the commissioning of bespoke joinery. Whatever the demands of the project, we collaborate with architects, specialist contractors and relevant trades to create interiors that stay true to our design vision.

Furniture Design

Bespoke interiors, by their very definition, often require the design of made-to-measure furniture. This may be to fulfil a specific, practical need – such as cabinetry to conceal AV equipment – or it may be to introduce a show-stopping piece that will be the focus of an entrance hall. Whatever the brief, clients can be assured that our passion for exquisite and innovative design is as evident in a table as a drawing room.

Project Management

While we pride ourselves on our creativity, we also consider delivering a superlative service to our clients to be part of our DNA. Our highly experienced project management team looks after every aspect of the design journey from meticulous attention to budgets; ensuring time frames are deliverable; and running the procurement process with zeal, guaranteeing every single item from large to small is ready for installation as agreed.
