Sophie Paterson has mastered a winning formula when it comes to designing impossibly timeless interiors. Apart from the usuals – a combination of luxurious textiles, glossy finishes and soft palette of sophisticated hues – Sophie understands the power of proportion play, formal yet comfortable shapes and the beauty of a layering. After an unconventional route into the industry – “a developer offered me the opportunity to design one of his townhouse developments after seeing my first home that I’d decorated myself” – the London-based designer’s career has led to project upon project of some of the city’s most luxurious homes. The published author (Sophie’s first book Style & Glamour was released in 2011) credits her success to a keen eye for the classic design which has become the signature of her work. Specialising in spaces which can be considered nothing else if not utterly sophisticated and subtly glamorous, Sophie is successfully championing the return to beautiful interiors.
As well as transforming the inner city dwellings of London’s elite, Sophie is entrusted with the holiday homes of many of her clients – “I’m installing a villa in Spain next week,” the brunette tells us, “[The clients] trust me completely and don’t want to see anything until we unveil it to them completely dressed right down to the faux flowers, art and candles!”
I approach every day with open eyes – it’s amazing how, if you do this, you’ll find beauty or inspiration.
“Chic decorative trays, cushions in beautiful fabrics and deliciously scented candles” are Sophie’s go-tos for upping the style factor of a space – “these elements will make any room feel more luxurious.”
