“20 up-and-coming interior designers you need to know about”.

From the elegantly pared-back to the unashamedly maximalist, we round up 20 of the most exciting interior designers who should be on your radar.

With a degree in Interior Architecture from Brighton University and a year with designer Rose Uniacke under her belt, Kay Westmaas founded her interior design and architecture studio four years ago. Unsurprisingly for someone who honed her eye under Rose, the interiors she creates are understated and elegant, combining soft palettes with beautiful antique one-offs. Or, as Kay puts it, ‘uncomplicated interiors that outlive fleeting trends’. She is currently working on a Grade II-listed house in Holland Park, a five-bedroom house in Richmond Hill and a loft conversion in Bow.”
