At Sims Hilditch, we create places which are rich in character and have a strong sense of belonging
Each project starts by understanding your aspirations, the language of the building in question and its surroundings. Our role is to design interiors with longevity, guided by our ethos—to buy once and buy well.
“What sets Sims Hilditch apart from others in our experience was the perfect balance between you presenting your own inspiration and listening to our ideas.”
"If you look hard enough, you can always find talented people but to mix that with a real desire to do their absolute best is a much harder culture to generate and one I see in abundance in Sims Hilditch."
"The level of detail combined with immaculate taste is so impressive. Your turnkey approach is fantastic customer service.”
"The Sims Hilditch team did an amazing job. Honestly, we could not be more pleased with it, our home is stunning."
"What a triumph your book is! A walk through some of your outstanding work, beautifully put together with superb photography - a real inspiration to others. I am delighted my home is represented in the book and I feel immense pride in what we have achieved together."
Our studio is known for developing a classic style that draws inspiration from historical interiors of every period which is then infused with a light and fresh sensibility. Working together with our clients, our design team put together schemes that balance the old with the new, updating where necessary and harnessing existing collections or working with antiques to result in warm and welcoming spaces that have the feel of being collected over time.
When a house requires a major overhaul, our interior architects can look at aspects including the flow of the building, reconfiguring how the spaces interconnect and the functionality of each room so that they answer your lifestyle needs appropriately. They also advise on design decisions regarding staircases and internal doors to cornices and built-in joinery to ensure that each corner of the house has been considered and made relevant.
When it comes to sourcing for projects—from fabrics to art, furniture and antiques—we collaborate with makers and dealers who share our values. Our procurement team have established excellent working relationships across the industry and the reputation that Sims Hilditch has for delivering design projects to schedule and within budget is down to the organisational talents of this team.
“Designers like Sims Hilditch are cherry-picking the best elements of rustic style to create elegant, country-lite interiors that combine rural luxury with a sleek urban edge. This “rurban” aesthetic looks as good in London as it does in deepest Lincolnshire.”
