1. Ben de Lisi

How do you create a modern interior without it looking
stark? Learn from the king of design, Ben de Lisi. Despite living in a Victorian property, Ben’s London home is a
masterclass in contemporary design. The New York born designer has created a large open-plan space with white walls, mirrors and retro furniture to create a fun, yet contemporary look. The sleek white kitchen has been
given drama with a splashblack of glossy black tiles. Perfect!

2. Sophie Conran

When it comes to style and elegance you don’t get much more beautiful than Sophie Conran’s gorgeous Bayswater home. Known for her amazing interiors commissions, numerous design collaborations and famous father, Sophie’s not afraid of bold colour and daring wallpaper prints.

Aged 20, Conran bought the stunning property, which was then a cluster of bed-sits, and totally transformed the space. Now the hallway is decked out in a bold wallpaper print (part of her Arthouse range), the kitchen is painted in a bright pink hue and the dining room is a mix of modern and classic style. Here at Housetohome we’re huge fans of the famous designer’s pad.

3. Nina Campbell

Design stallwart Nina Campbell started her career at Colefax & Fowler before setting up as an independent. Now she has her own fabric, wallpaper and tableware designs. Her love of interiors is reflected in her beautiful Chelsea home that mixes traditional-style elegance with a few contemporary touches. We love her stunning sitting room, complete with laquered ceiling (the shiny finish reflects light around the room) and formal armchairs. The bedroom features a wall of mirrors which again maximises the space and adds a feeling of light and space. Genius tricks from a genius designer

4. Joa Studholme
Known in interiors circles for her work as a colour consultant for
Farrow & Ball, Joa Studholme opened the doors of her Victorian flat
back in 2008 to feature in an issue of Livingetc. Located in West
London, the two-storey property is an everchanging canvas awash with
colour and a wealth of quirky details. Joa has managed to effortlessly
mix both classic and modern furniture with bold colour-drenched artwork.
