    Our Approach

    For us, each project is completely unique and we want to embark on a design journey with the client that is creative, imaginative, surprising and enjoyable.  Our agile ‘can-do’ attitude accompanied by our large multi-skilled workforce enables projects to be realised anywhere globally.

    Our designs are not formulaic or trend-driven. At Studio Indigo we aim to cultivate a creative dialogue between client, architects, artisans and craftsmen to ensure each home tells its own unique story.

    The in-house collaboration between architect and interior designer is our secret to creating superior spaces. We are past masters at ensuring the internal and external fabric of a building blends seamlessly, whilst always taking into account its location and heritage.

    We’ll develop the interiors with a close collaboration with our architects, followed by the selection and sourcing of fabrics, furniture and art – all in the pursuit of creating interiors of quality and individuality
