Known for her quintessentially British approach to interiors, Emma Sims-Hilditch is the go-to designer for inviting country estates and cottages alike that embrace the beauty of the everyday and blend seamlessly with their natural surroundings.
Believing that any home can feel warm and lived-in, regardless of age or heritage, her design studio, Sims Hilditch, focuses on natural materials, durable textures and a relaxed approach to living when designing clients’ homes. The outcome is homes that feel as though they have evolved over a lifetime, with memories associated with each piece even if they have just been newly acquired. Sims-Hilditch’s portfolio features many loyal customers for a reason; perfectly imperfect, these projects possess a homely feel that few designers can emulate. Not simply a matter of layering linens, the designers understand the soul of each property, honouring and enhancing each building to bring it to its true potential.
Here, Emma reveals how she’s mastered her design style, what you should and shouldn’t do with a heritage property and what it means to create a home that lasts a lifetime.
