Under the umbrella of Lucy Rose Design, Lucy works as an Interior Designer and imports her curated collection of fabrics and wallpapers from her native Britain.
After graduating high school she trekked through the hills and temples of India with her grandmother; Lucy’s eyes were opened to an old world of colour, pattern and authentic architecture which set the stage for a career in design. She spent the next 7 years working with John Stefanidis and then David Mlinaric, two of England’s most highly esteemed interior designers, assisting on some of the world’s most desirable houses: she travelled to Turkey to oversee the making of rugs for West Dean College; mixed paints by hand in Mick Jagger’s chateau on the Loire; hung paintings in many a grand Hall across England and arranged furniture in Lord Rothschild’s London homes.
Lucy’s projects are about getting the bones right first: the use of the space and the flow of the rooms and then embellishing them with color and texture. Lucy takes inspiration from the architecture of Sir Edwin Lutyens and Frank Lloyd Wright and creates places for people to sit, work and entertain on a familial scale. She has an empathy and understanding of the people who live in them and creates rooms that are comfortable, practical and above all, where one wants to spend time. Layering of
